Has Bates lost the plot? This is awful.
The worst decision at LUFC for many years and thats saying something.
Grayson can not handle this club.
The players will be very disapointed about this.
Bates OUT

Players and managers get poached all the time and nobody bats an eyelid, so what's the issue this time?

Oh yeah, it's Leeds

Woah there's a lot of bitter, hypocritical people out there

Does the Leeds united board just like the look of court rooms?
After all the threats to take spurs to one and everyone who was against your points deduction last year, I would have thought that you would have had enough of legal problems.
This guy was REFUSED permission to talk to you, his resignation WASN'T accepted by Blackpool and you are in breach of FA regulations.
I hope they take you to the cleaners over this.
Bates should have looked elsewhere. there are better managers than this one who were out of work. What about one of them?
He only played 2 full games before moving on, so its not like he was a terrace hero to you all?

It may happen regularly but this poaching of managers and players has to stop,nothing personal Leeds but I hope you get relegated under Grayson and that he gets an incurable case of Piles

im loving the fact that leeds fans are kicking off saying "why we been picked on". well i shall tell you why, cos you as a club allways break the FA rules, thats why people dont like you!

simon should not be allowed to be on the touchline untill this situation is sorted out, as hes still classed as blackpool mananger!

docking points wud be very harsh, and quite out of order! i think a hefty fine and a touchline ban should do the trick. it would be a fine on the ken bates and simon and not the fans! cos as much as i hate leeds i dont think football fans should be punished for dodgy dealings that a rich chairman does

Funny how every true football fan dislikes you lot we cannot all be wrong , one good season in the early seventies and you still go on about it , time to realise that you are no better than any other 3rd division side and long may it continue.

If Prutton was still around ne would have been in the side to face Spurs
Grayson should put some reserves in against Tottenham
