Leeds United must start the League One season with a 15-point deduction after receiving their Football League share.The Whites have been trying to secure the share in time to begin the new campaign next weekend against Tranmere Rovers.But in order to take up their spot in League One for the coming season, Dennis Wise's Leeds must accept a 15-point penalty.An appeal has been lodged with the Football League, with Leeds releasing a statement to confirm the announcement.Appeal"We are pleased to announce that the board of the Football League Ltd have agreed to transfer the share in the Football League to Leeds United 2007 Ltd," read the statement."The Football League have transferred the share in 'exceptional circumstances' and have imposed a 15-point penalty for the start of the 2007/08 season."The club have appealed against this sanction. The timescale for the appeal is not yet known."The club has received an amount of criticism from supporters for not keeping them up to date with developments during what has been a very difficult time for us all."We appreciate this policy was difficult for fans to accept, but please be assured that this was done in the best interests of Leeds United which is justified by the return of the share."We are now planning the appeal and we are able to complete the squad rebuilding for the 2007/08 season, albeit with only one week to go before our first League One game at Tranmere."

Although their fans are the 3rd worst in Britain, after Cardiff and Millwall, this is gettin beyond a joke. I do feel an ounce of sympathy towards them.
