    Ace news. :D

    12 years ago to this day, we signed Rio Ferdinand for £28m from West Ham, and everyone knew we meant ****ing business, and were going to send shockwaves through Europe. Well, on the 21st of the 11th this year, we mark the beginning of a new great era for Leeds, where we return to the top flight and start ruffling feathers once again.

    El Presidente won't last longer than a season and a half. The fans will have a voice on the board. Sensible investment will be made in the team. Promotion will be imminent. The Surrey Quays sewer-rats will weep.

    <ok>

    Oops, genuine typo! Still a record transfer for a defender, of course (not that it's anything in today's insane money).

    Well we're no longer living in what TC would call Coco land, so it has to be classed as an improvement. :)

    Well, this is good news about the takeover. AT LAST!

    Only one sour note here and I don't want to put a dampener on anything but the official takeover is 21st December right? Which is the day Ken Bates is no longer chairman?

    Didn't the Mayans predict that the World would end on 21.12.2012? Maybe Ken picked that date deliberately as it's the day he takes up his new position as Antichrist :emoticon-0112-wonde

    The takeover isn't actually completed yet though - "we hope to complete within a month"

    Everyone seems to be jumping the gun a bit - or am I being to cynical?

    This is the transitional period to make sure everyone knows what's going on.

    **** it, who am I kidding? It's the great appeasement of ken bates. The sad old **** isn't happy unless he feels involved. Fortunately he'll get thrown out on his ass like the incompetent nobody that he is as soon as the new owners have complete control

    Think its probably like buying a house, you exchange contracts, putting a 10 percent deposit down, then two weeks later, you complete the deal <ok>

    You got to admire his sense of occasion. He gets to wave goodbye at the Chelsea game. Even as he says his long goodbye he is giving us the finger.

    Fair to say we had a better day today than Chelsea. Long time since we've been able to say that

    Who will your 'new' owners put in as manager then given how **** your current one is and how much is going into your kitty to achieve world domination ?

    I just can't wait to see it happen <wizard>

    Depends which month it is! (With their track record to date, who knows?).

    (Am I more cynical-er than you, LiE?)

    Looks like we're both even more cynical than Marko, which is a worry <yikes>

    While I am happy with the news, I don't buy into this transitional period **** either, something is till not quite right but as long as we get the new owners in place and some money to strengthen the team <ok>
