    So you don't care who pays for it until things start going wrong? As a Leeds fan I'd have thought you'd be more wary of these types but there you go. It's such a short term attitude.

    Well bumbling along in the middle of the Championship isn't any good, is it? I want my team to rise up to the top, and if that means getting a multi-millionaire foreigner running the club instead of John Smith down the road then so be it.

    That's what I used to think-now my club is a tinpot joke playing 35 miles down the road. Having big investors is not in itself terrible but when they take 100% ownership then it's an enormous gamble which takes things out of the fans' hands and prevents there being any transparency.

    The whole reason you're in the Championship is because of shady ownership.

    Cellino has 75%.

    GFH put absolutely no money into the club. If we wanted players we had to sell players. It is a risk but if it pays off the reward is huge. I'd rather take that risk instead of spending the next 10 years treading water in the Championship.

    75%, 100%, anything more than 50 and you're in dangerous territory. Good luck to Leeds with this guy but as I said, this is no way for English football to run itself.

    Why is anymore than 50 dangerous territory - business men have owned football clubs in mass majorities for a long time, in the main to no issues at all.

    It is only since the amount of money in football skyrocketed that there has been a problem-the business world in general has become a lot shadier.

    I thought it was harsh to send your keeper off when the game was basically over anyway.

    Yeah very upsetting but still great day out though, and we really livened the atmosphere. Give the team a lot of credit coming from league two and beating premier league teams including Arsenal.

    Alas the great Sheffield derby clash in the next round of the cup was not meant to be probably the easiest FA cup draw we've ever had and we mess up against Charlton of all teams.

    Dunno i've never taken notice of the cup really because we've been destroyed in the first few rounds for the last decade.

    Although Bradford made it last year (although not 3rd tier at the time).

    And where are you from? 50 quid says it's not North London.
