so now people turn on rads.

for me i have never been a massive fan but at same time i don't dislike him either

as i said when cleiino left (who i loved dispite getting slated by most) be careful what you wish for.

if rads don't invest he needs to go but then saying we got money just drives up prices so maybe he is just being smart

time will tell

only real bad mark against rads was selling veria far too cheap, if he let's shacks and clarke go cheap (less than 20 million) i will start a riot.

I've suspected radz of being a bluffer for quite a while now and he's doing his best to convince me. Very little investment in the squad. Talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk. And swindled us out of Elland Road purchasing under a buy back deal that was agreed with leeds united at a reduced price and placed in a separate company from Leeds.

Wex I’ve been reading your comments regarding Rad’s purchase of Elland Road! He purchased Leeds through a company he owns, he has then purchased Elland Road under a company he owns? So The company he owns pays rent to a company he also owns, I’m at a lost to work how it’s taking money out of Leeds United . Can you explain to me please how He loses out as he OWNS Both!

Time we realise that we are a selling club and I expect us to sell several of our team this summer. It is what we do, but sadly we let players leave for way below the prices we get quoted for players we want to get in. I am happy to let the players move on that express the desire to go.
Leeds are and will only ever be a business to Radz, not doubting his passion but his love of Leeds Utd do not run as deep as that of a fan, his is about money. And when the time is right for him, he will also move on. Whatever the truth is about why Daniel James move to Leeds broke down, we have now missed the boat as he will end up a Man u. As good as our season was, team investment could have been better imo.

22 May 2019 20:26:30
How do you make out that he loses out. He's being paid rent. He owns Elland Road leeds united doesn't can you not figure that out. He announced it as leeds had got their ground back. Newsflash we don't.

22 May 2019 21:15:11
Blubby hell. Here we go again. Who did we sell in January? Just wait and see what happens this summer before slagging the bloke, unless you’re mystic meg in disguise, somat I doubt any of you will own up to. Business is business, and negotiation is a game to be played. Stop taking things so literally. Radz is shrewd. If he wasn’t, he wouldn’t be as rich as he is, and we would all be potential owners of our club.

22 May 2019 21:34:23
Said when Radz bought the club, the company he used to purchase is an investment company who put money into sports projects and expect to make a return on the investment. The company or Radz will not invest more money unless it raised through share transactions. Why do you think the emphasis has been on the youth team, because that is how you turn a profit, look at Clarkes valuation after a couple of games. If we sold it some of the money would go on the team and some would go to the investors. Its not rocket science.
Saying that he has made the club financially sound and thanks to Bubs has give us hope back, but do not for one minute think he is all Leeds its a business to him. Of course he wants success but not for the same reasons we do. Fact is we will have to sell players to buy new but do not expect all the money we get for them to be spent on the team.

22 May 2019 21:43:05
Wex, who owns Leeds United? Am I missing something?
NEWSFLASH, The Owner of Leeds United now OWNS the ground!

22 May 2019 22:55:27
The owner of sports direct owns Newcastle United so by your assumption Newcastle United own sports direct. Red bull own 4 or 5 clubs do they all own red bull. Can you figure it out now.

22 May 2019 22:56:58
Bit disheartened by all the negativity towards Radz etc. We have had best season in a decade and a half, played some superb football. Ok, he is only a millionare rather than a billionare and cannot afford Suarez, Messi and Ronaldo, and he makes mistakes during his first year as owner of a football club, but, surely history should have taught us that he is as yet a decent owner. We have had some complete scabs in the last 15 years. Give him time before getting the gallows out.

23 May 2019 09:13:52
Tory scum, I totally agree! When we have the luxury of choosing between alternative owners, fair enough, but do we really? Where are all these generous, loaded Leeds fans who want to buy the club? Haven’t they had enough opportunities to do it over the last few years and not taken them?

23 May 2019 09:17:49
Wex, google who owns premiere league grounds? I’ll give you a heads up only Manchester United plc owns the club and the ground! The others are either owned by the local council who receive RENT or by another company owned by the owner or majority shareholder, nothing sinister here, just a business thing . Move on!

23 May 2019 09:30:20
To also clarify things to you, Rads is our clubs owner, he is also firstly a businessman, he bought the club as a business, he may not have been a supporter before he bought the club, but his success is based on the club being successful! So he will try as hard as he can to achieve this, if he can’t make it successful, he’ll sell it on to someone else . The new owners will be offered the club and the ground . If the new owners can’t afford to buy both of course he’ll expect them to pay rent for something he owns! Or would you expect him to give it away!

Good posts Raggity! Wex, provide us with a list of Billionaire Leeds fans prepared to risk the wrath of the fans and spend a lot of their own money getting Leeds into the premiership. Or as a B list a list of foreign countries or ruling regimes from foreign countries with a poor human rights record that you would be happy to take over the club. In the real world there aren’t many perfect “ Roy of the Rodgers” solutions. Anyone out, with cash, who really saw Leeds as a prospect for building a one city premiership team would have bought us or would be trying to buy us now given that we almost got there so have shown it’s possible. If Radz is just in it for the money, he would be easy to buy out!

23 May 2019 10:52:21

Agree, Radz will look a failure in the business world if Leeds fail. And reputation is everything in that world.

23 May 2019 11:40:30
We will be paying rent to radz this season.

23 May 2019 17:10:00
The point is and your all missing it Radz report buying Leeds Utd home ground for Leeds Utd, who else buys the club the rents back the ground to the tune of 2 million plus every year, which we will have to pay him even if he sold his part in Leeds Utd, there was little point buy the club because nothing has changed WE ARE STILL PAYING RENT, no difference,

23 May 2019 18:04:04
Lufc, don’t lie to the fans, that would be a good start, Radz needs to learn that.

24 May 2019 07:07:51
Whiteman, see The earlier answer from Raggity!

No one answers the point about alternative Leeds loving owners with cash, possibly because there aren’t any interested? We needed to be bailed out by a Londoner who hated the club, a dodgy Italian and then another Italian. If there was an “ all Leeds” fan with loads of cash, don’t you think that they have had ample opportunity to come forward?

Let’s make the life of the owner miserable and make the atmosphere so hostile he won’t come to the ground with his son, that will really encourage buyers!

24 May 2019 07:22:17
Whiteman, have a look at the information regarding ownership of grounds. Where grounds are owned by other legal bodies there is rent involved, it’s a common arrangement. Sometimes the ground is owned by the council or a combination. If it is owned by the club it is often through another holding company under the umbrella of a parent company. It really isn’t that uncommon. If any group owns an asset worth millions, they would be expecting to get a rent on it.

I think the point is, it’s better that the ground is owned within the Radz umbrella than outside it. Anyone buying the club would be aware of all the information and would be able to construct a deal to include the ground if it was a deal breaker. If they did buy the ground as well then they would possibly structure it in the same way.

Criticise Radz for some of the decisions he has made but I think the ownership structure of the ground is a bit of a red herring.

24 May 2019 09:06:59
Spanishleeds, did I say anything about making his life miserable (Not I ) , did I say he should Stop coming to the ground (Not I ) If you lie you will be found out that is simple Spanishleeds, Radz is such and has. MC when through hell some did or couldn’t understand him many made his time miserable, but not I.
