Ken Bates was direct in his response to the Football League's decision to transfer the Leeds United golden share to his new Leeds United 2007 company, "We are delighted we are back in the league. We are surprised it has taken so long. We intend to appeal against the 15-point deduction because we have still to have an explanation for that.”
With a fifteen point deduction tantamount to relegation to Division Four, sorry League Two, hard-pressed Leeds fans will be watching the outcome of the appeal with trepidation.
However, with the possession of the golden share now assured Ken Bates will soon be back to his pugnacious best.
