We might be in decent shape this season but it has certainly been a long hard slog in recent years.
Really, we should still be in the Premier League but for awful mismanagement and Ken Bates is certainly one man that doesn’t exactly have much respect around these parts.
Anyway, Adam Pope has delivered this update on Twitter harking back to that awful era with the old company set to be liquidated:
More than 10 years after Leeds United AFC went into administration in the Ken Bates era at #lufc , Companies House documents reveal that the "old" company will be finally liquidated in about 6 months with circa £11.5m of creditors left unpaid. pic.twitter.com/9Tu2EyOpv3

There’s still money unpaid and it looks as though it might never get resolved – highlighting the financial plight we were in under Bates and co.
It was a torrid time for all involved at the club but, hopefully, with this coming to pass later this season, we’ll finish the campaign off in style and return to the Premier League under Marcelo Bielsa.
It would surely be fitting, too, with our centenary year also just around the corner in 2019.
