  • Is the date of ruling accurate?

    Given the impact that the loss of 15 points has had on Leeds United's position in the League One football table, I would have expected that the ruling would be necessary prior to the end of the season (final scheduled fixture is 3rd May 2008).

  • End OF MAY !!!!

    This cant be correct. Ruling not known until the end of May?! The season ends on May 3rd! Makes a mockery of the whole process.

    If it's true, it proves Leeds have been totally stitched up!

    I believed Leeds were already condemned to Division 1 prior to the deduction of 10 points. As I recall this was a cynical attempt to avoid the loss of the 10 points in the 2007-08 season.

    End of the day we hadn't been relegated and so we did receive the 10 point deduction and therefore got relegated. Theres no law against cynicism.
    The fact that the judgment is being made after the end of the play offs is a joke and proves this is not being taken seriously!

    Relax Leeds fans... the article says "before the end of the football season in May". We were already told it should be before the Millwall match, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was a bit later. However, it MUST be before the seasons end... ie May 3rd

    Leeds were not relegated prior to their going into administrationin 2007.
    This is factually incorrect. Nothing cynical about it, it was pretty much standard practice in every football administration to date.

  • Deduction of Points

    If Leeds do get some points back there should only be a maximum of 5 as they should have been deducted 10 points this season and not last season for going into administration.
    They deliberately went into administration after it was confirmed that they were relegated.
    The league clearly need to look at a way of deducting points the season after a club goes into administration as this would be fairer on all parties and would allow more time to reorganise afairs off the pitch.

  • Farce.....nothing more than I expected

    If Leeds are stitched up by there being no ruling until the end of May, then I hope Ken bates sues the Football League.....that is, should we not gain promotion to the championship directly because of the 15 point penalty imposed.
