Do you have a spy there


According to spotters at Leeds Brafdford "1st time newcomer Qatar Eurocopter 155 made its arrival from Stansted. Post midday it departed a couple of times using a Multiflight Training callsign and remained in the circuit and local area for a fair while, possibly on a demonstration for a customer."

That really is a different level of research psquithy :clap:

Not sure what we can truly extract from this observation for Leeds United but I think you’re heading for a job as a PI or with one of the red tops if you want it!

I might be a bit of a plane spotter - I remember visiting Yeadon (as it used to be known) in around 1978 and having one of the best sausage rolls of my life in the terminal building.

Actually - I can't remember a better sausage roll since then!

I remember going to an air show at Yeadon, in about 1958. Don't remember the sausage rolls though. :D Flew out of Yeadon (to Glasgow) in 1963. Not much there in those days. - Yeadon, I mean, not Glasgow.
I once played against Don Revie.

Apparently QSI officials were at the Reading game with Radz. Read into it what you like ;)

I’ve made no secret of my hope that QSI acquire us. ASAP from my perspective as regards planning for stadium development etc. My one caveat is the effect a deal might have (in January) on the morale within the squad. There being a fine balance between acquisitions that the squad a lift in Jan and those that destabilise the team ethos a la DERBY a few seasons ago (twice).

Regardless knowing our luck we will be acquired by QSI 11/12 Corbyn will get in on the 12th ...increase the higher rate of income tax to 90% and all the world class players we were going to acquire will no longer be interested in plying their trade in the UK! :|

Would you prefer that Johnson got in on the 12th and overpaid footballers all got a massive tax break?

Agree with the sentiment about footballers being overpaid however i would imagine the average player pays well in excess of £1m per annum in tax. To my knowledge no party has pledged to reduce the highest rate of tax although when that does happen tax revenue invariably increase (laffater curve?)
