Bates' New Leeds

Bates New Leeds

Description: Another United shirt here laid in support of the Flower Protest in July 2007. The shirt includes various messages with several emphasising Bates' previous chairmanship of Chelsea.

The Flower protest was created against a backdrop of one of the darkest periods in Leeds United's history. A time when the club was very close to going completely out of business and thus ending any representation for the City of Leeds in the Football League. It was an anonymous Leeds United fan who belonged to the Ultra's, a Leeds United supporters group, that came up with the idea. The Flower Protest was a concerted effort by the United faithful organised through the various Leeds United forum's on the internet and in particular WACCOE. It had the aim of showing love and support through the club's darkest hour with a display of flowers and club colours that should be laid around the Billy statue. The first shirt and flowers were laid on the 20th July by WACCOE user Bilks and the display soon gathered momentum as the word spread round. Fans of other teams showed their support and some offered their own colours at the Bremner statute, the media were also soon to pick up on the protest with local and national news teams reporting on the story.

The display was taken down by Elland Road officials around a week before the new season kicked off.

As we all know every single match is stopped right now due to this pandemic and we have to make sure we follow the sops for it. I come to know about it from https://toptenwritingservices.com/paymetodoyourho... and I must appreciate their efforts to tell people.
