    Default Mlse To Purchase Leeds Utd?!

    This would be pretty cool:

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=2388...ecStory_soccer

    Sorry, I know this isn’t exactly TFC / MLS news, but Toronto FC is mentioned in the article.

    Here’s a link to the article in the Mirror referenced in the TSN report:

    Leeds?
    Well, as an investment...this team SHOULD be in the higher leagues and if they could get them on the cheap, could make a pile of money....
    Still, fucking Leeds though

    That would be an interesting purchase. Can someone recap the teams MLSE has been linked to in England.

    Leeds has massive fan support for such a lousy team, surely they would be cheaper than Spurs and a more profitable investment in the long run. Would love to see Leeds in the premiership.

    I get the sense that MLSE want to buy a classic club that is currently in Championship or League One on the cheap, so when they build them up to an EPL level the cash will roll in.

    Actually, Spurs are a hell of a good investment but just more expensive...Still, Spurs are in the EPL which is a money maker in itself.

    Why not? I suspect that they would do good job of running the club. Far better than the current ownership.

    Leeds would make huge sense as an investment...it's inevitable that Leeds will get back to the top tier eventually.

    I still don't get how any of this would work with a board making decisions across the pond. What happens if they get Leeds to the prem league? Who is going to sign of on the £12m transfer?

    I think it would be a great investment. Starting with a team in League One will allow MLSE to gradually shoulder the financial burden associated with owning a big club in the UK.

    MLSE’s link with UK football has been interesting. Linked with the purchase of three clubs now, you’ve got to think it’s a situation of "where there’s smoke there’s fire". Alternatively, I wouldn’t be surprised if MLSE issue’s a denial of this tomorrow.

    I would suspect the club would have its own management structure like all MLSE’s teams. Presumably they’d have someone on the ground in the UK with the club.

    do you think the teachers are signing the cheques for CB4 or Mat Sundin?
    It's an independant management who does that part of the job, The Teachers board is just a majority shareholder but don't make decisions in sports matters.

    What kind of effect this will be on TFC if it never happens one day?
    Can TFC get players on loan or transfered from Leeds? Just wondering

    Most likely....But the Red bull shite also own a team in Austria, but I don't see them getting players on loan there unless they're shite too.

    Leeds have a huge fan base, undying support, are cheap to buy, have a 40,000 seat stadium in a city that's booming. C-A-S-H C-O-W
    A shame they didn't get promoted today

    They no longer own Elland Road . They sold it to raise funds during their financial difficulties - however the deal does include a buy-back clause.

    I saw Newcastle! Then we can get Santi and Gavin Harris to play for us!

    But why not Newcastle, TFC is turning into Newcastle anyways!
