it shouldnt really affect them too much, as he owns the clubs entireley he has a vested interest to ensure that the club does well

he will get no return if the lets the club wither and die

All the comments I've heard from AP are that he is disillusioned with soccer and the commitment of the players - he and his daughters are now avid Rugby League fans !
This doesn't make sense and sounds like tosh imo! ;)

I thought Leeds had just been bought out by a billionaire? Didn't he just want to be a chief exec again (like when he was for Hull City at the time he bought Hull FC)?

He could have bought them recently,but didn't,someone else did.They have stated very clearly they have no interest in selling - another non story for people to get their knickers in a twist about.

This is because he recently gave an interview saying he would like to be involved in football again and said Leeds United would be the obvious club.

Well there is a consortium after Leeds but Pearson isnt in it.

We have been bought out, but by Tory chancers & Bates puppets.

GFBates Out.

Cummins Out.

GFHC who purchased Leeds united were broker's for wealthy bidder's from the middle east,but they pulled out after much prevarication from Bates ,and GFHC were in it too deep to walk out too so they bought the club.There is rumour's that they cant meet their next installment.It rumoured that it was alway's rhier intention to "flip"the club to people who could not ,would not deal with Bates
but you and I weve been through that and this is not our fate.
So let us so let us not talk falsely now.

Just wait until this next installment is missed and the club ends up back in the hands of several secret owners in the Cayman Islands and they trust Bates to vote him in as chairman :(
