Leeds minus 15

Leeds United are a little lighter in the points department and will be at the bottom of the table for at least the first five games of next season as their appeal of a 15 point penalty has been denied.

The penalty was levied as a breach of the Football League's insolvency policy.

The chairmen and other Football League clubs voted today to uphold the original punishment with more than ¾ of clubs voting to uphold the punishment.

In typical “old boys network” style, a fine was not levied on Leeds, something that would hurt Mafia-owner Ken Bates, but instead deduct points, hurting the clubs fans. It’s a pathetic saga.

I have documented the story here and here, I don’t even want to get into again, it’s so pathetic and Ken Bates such a low-life.
