So we have the real reason Ken Bates was asked to leave his position as club president or in another way sacked by GFH, he apparently tied the club to a contract costing around £500,000 to fly him backwards and forwards from his Monaco villa.
It must be really nice to be able to spend the money me and other fans put into the club on an annual basis. We've had a long line of his 'personal' ways of getting money, though he swears he never took a penny out during his eight and a half years at the club.
Court cases, club season ticket monies for the next few seasons to pay for the redeveloping of the East Stand while the team on the pitch was decimated, there will be more but a clever man covers his tracks. I never saw him as a saviour he just seemed to be a bully and with this last (hopefully) mention of his name I really do hope that he leaves the club alone and stays in his villa with his Mrs. The trouble with Ken is you never quite know his next move !
The Chelsea's finally gone from Leeds.
