Can't stand the bloke. From what I've read about this, he hasn't got a leg to stand on - he used the matchday programme to carry out quite a nasty campaign, even publishing addresses and phone numbers.

I've never liked him, he has one of the most punchable faces in football.

Apparently he was voted "most likely to be prosecuted for headbutting someones fist" when he left school.

Seriously tho, the guy is a weasel.

I'm a fan of Ken Bates.Ok i wouldn't want anywhere near Villa but he's a character.Also he's about to oversee Leeds third year in League 1 and anyone who can boast that is a hero in my book.

Well, of course it's great that he's managed to keep them down for so long......

Incidentally, I made another thread for this, but did you read that Palace fielded an ineligible player v Sheffield Utd? They've been fined £20k & had a point deducted. The game was a draw, and if the Blades had won, they'd have had enough points for automatic promotion. Interesting, given the precedent that McCabe has set, don't you think?

QB - perhaps you might have a different view if you were one of the creditors who only got 10p in the £ after Bates as Chairman was allowed to place the club into administration and acquire it from the Administrators within hours - shocking unethical behaviour - there were people willing and able to buy Leeds before it was placed into administration - Bates robbed them of that opportunity - and left a lot of small company suppliers to Leeds totally bollocksed

Batesy may be great, but he's lighter in the pocket now.

Not a huge amount, but I wonder what his legal fees were?

Bates and his cronies calling each other out is a joke - Bates has said his remarks were "fair comment" and I don't doubt that they were, but exactly the same -what was it "shyster"? - could be said about him too !
