Everything I predicted and feared for Leeds United moved a step closer to reality this evening when Sebastian Sainsbury pulled out of the deal to take over the club. Unless by some miracle somebody else buys the club, Leeds United will be in administration very soon.

From what I have read on the Internet and seen in the media the current owners have done very little to prevent this.

The current Leeds board have always appeared to be extremely hostile to anybody showing an interest in taking over and saving the club, making up excuses, appearing to be changing deals and being down right stubborn. They have sold almost everything of value to the club including their stadium and training ground.

It now comes out that they have paid more player agent fees this year than any other club in the whole of England; this includes Chelsea who have more coming and goings than Paddington Station!

The whole club is a farce and has been for so many years. Everyone who has run Leeds United across the last five years should hang their heads in shame as they have all committed such terrible atrocities. They have been so careless with money and looking after their own interests, completely disregarding the loyal fans, many of who were watching Leeds United while the board members were still in nappies.

The previous and current owners have totally destroyed what is a wonderful club. Not only is it a tragedy for Leeds fans, but it is a tragedy for football itself. Some rival fans may find the peril of the club amusing now, but where did the rivalry come from in the first place?

The rivalries came from so many fantastic games between their club and Leeds over a large number of decades. Now with Leeds in the lower division and facing the prospect of a consecutive relegation or worse (should administration come into effect) these glorious matches can not occur.

The only thing Leeds United still have is the fans. This is something that luckily can never be sold and while Leeds United still play they will attract them in their tens of thousands. Leeds are easily the largest club in The Championship and should administration rear its ugly head, the fans may be the only thing to keep the administrators from making the club extinct.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
