The Square Ball is an excellent Leeds United fanzine that today took aim at former chairman Ken Bates. Bates was fired as club president by new owners GFH because he claims of a contract he entered the club into with 247 jet - a private jet company used to fly him to and from his Monaco home. The cost of this? €500,000.
That of course is merely the tip of a particularly crass iceberg the Bates involvement with Leeds symbolized. The Leeds hardcore leave you in no doubt as to where they stand.
