Geoffrey Richmond, an advisor to the consortium that has taken over Leeds United, defended himself against criticism from the fans at the first Leeds supporters' forum last night.

Reference was made to the fact that Richmond was the chairman of Bradford when the club went into administration.

"I have taken a lot of flak tonight," Richmond said. "I am not an asset stripper. [Leeds] would have gone into administration without [my] input. When the consortium approached me, I was invited to join. But I have some financial problems and I am not in a position to invest. People have put their houses and businesses on the line for this club and they have been insulted by people who should know better."
