Billy paynter good striker, hard done by with injuries which have given him bad form since moving to Leeds, poor lad gets some abuse, hope he finds scoring form again

Believable32 Unbelievable14

I think he had just started playing better before he got another injury if he drops down a league im sure he will get the form back

Agree0 Disagree0

He will find a new club this year and smash 30 goals in you watch

Agree0 Disagree0

Ditto
great player, just unfortunate he did not get enough games
cracking striker!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Check his career record. has had one good season and a couple of average ones in his entire career. Nearly every team he's signed for has shipped him out on loan. A journeyman striker at best

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought the potential buyer of our beloved club was daniel snyder the owner of the redskins in america. he seems ro be linked strongly to our club.. didnt he try to buy us in 2010. where as all this al hasawi business come from again.. its fact he dont have money to buy any team.. MOT.. leedsutdfan

Believable4 Unbelievable14

Well a strong rumour is tom ricketts who recently owned 11 %of derby county i heard the shared in derby has been transfered to his brother but thats just a rumour no proof

Agree0 Disagree0

I heard it was the Family trust of Joe Ricketts who owns the Chicago Cubs

Don't want to pee on your strawberries but it was mentioned in three papers al faswel was expecting to close the deal on forest plus the informationut out by most sites is the company interested in Leeds are American ??phil Bramley

Believable10 Unbelievable5

I heard the guy didnt have the cash i makes fridges for a living he said on kuwait he was in no position to buy an englis club plus what he said before that he intended to fetch a lot of kuwait under 20 players to save on transfers so i hope he dont come to us

Agree0 Disagree0

Is no news not good news. It means something is happening? We just want it sorted yesterday

on 21st june it will be announced al hasawi has taken over our club nw knew this when he joined and the budget was set then before he made his clear out list al hasawi wanted nw put in place then! you heard it here first that is the date so just relax

Believable14 Unbelievable26

What ever heard it all before just wish it was true

Agree0 Disagree0

Can you back this up with evidence?

Agree0 Disagree0

That mite be that maybe why simon grayson got sacked

Agree0 Disagree0

You heard it here first (ah)..has at best 2% chance of being true. please next time make something a little more believable...however 98% of me would like it to be true..mot

Agree0 Disagree0

First poster posting again, believe it or not my friend, but its going to happen on the 21st mr al hasawi wanted nw put in place he admired him very very much at queens park rangers believe me just relax and enjoy

Agree0 Disagree0

It sounds still very much that his main target is Forest though. Warnock also to follow.

Agree0 Disagree0

No Simon got sacked cos he was seeing o brian's wife hence the breakdown and fallout between them, larry was at last chance saloon then he was caught with ken's secretary, if you'd been to the away games at the time this will all make sense to you with the songs doing the rounds at the time. thats why Larry got the boot nowt to do with results

Agree0 Disagree0

Al Hasawi has no funds for such a deal, as has been discovered by various sources, so stop making up bull****!

Agree0 Disagree0

KB must be incontinent with laughter looking at this lot, rumours are fine but do understand that all these dealings will be covered by legally binding confidentiality clauses. This poster knows as much as i do, which is nothing.

Agree0 Disagree0

I believe it was proved not long back that hasawi doesn't have enough money to buy any team.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just a few things there mate thats wrong if his transfer budget is set why hasnt warnock got anyone but pearce he did say he wanted 3more players b4 he went on hols plus the kuwait gi=uy may be rich an estimated 400 million sterling he aint a billionair like some think of that 400 million over 360 million is tied up in his refrigeration business and some 15 to 20 in property which leaves him an estimated 20 million he will have to mortgage hios property to pay fopr leeds and we will end up paying his morgages hence part of his footballing ain is to fetch young kuwait players over

Hold on I have just been hit by a lightning bolt and it has given me the power to look into the future

the first signing is ..... messi followed by some guy in a white robe and big grey beard oppps no that God telling me to go into the light

Agree0 Disagree0

I really think new owners may be announce sometime this week i think they have been warnock to come back from hols to get the transfers rolling

Agree0 Disagree0

I actually heard that one of the 2 signings is Roy of the Rovers! He will give us 30 goals a season and his wife Penny would make a great Elland Road WAG! Trouble is, would Melchester Rovers be willing to sell? Apologies to all fans under 35 who have not heard of him! :-)

here's 5 possible Leeds targets, a contact of mine works close to someone at the club. Theses are rumours and not gospel but he has got many of his targets correct in the past.

k Lo Kwan-yee - 27 year old full back, crowned hong kong footballer of the year - 1.75m

Lee Barnard - Southampton frontman likely to come on a 6 month loan initianally but if all goes well will be extended to a year.

Carlos Edwards - Ipswich - 1.5m, great attacking option from the back.

André Schembri - 26 year old Malta international. Attacking midfielder with great eye for goal, currently smashing the goals in for greek team pananios. 500k

EMMANUELE smith - Walsall - supporters player of the year and fans favourite, midfield hardman who don't
Shunt a challenge. Just what we need, 350 - 500k

Believable6 Unbelievable32

These are good targets and there not out of our range.

Agree0 Disagree0

The the maltese guy please do ya research smashing the goals in i hardley call 4 goals in 21 games smashing them in

Agree0 Disagree0

I cant see NW taking a punt on a 27 yr old fullback from Hong Kong with no experience in european leagues to be honest

Agree0 Disagree0

Where is the money coming from for these signings?.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just a rumour I heard from a friend but apparently the situation regarding investment/takeover has stalled because Ken Bates is evaluating two offers. Decision is apparently going to be made in next week. Just a rumour do don't bite my head off

Believable6 Unbelievable13

Not gonna bite ya head off but i hope its untrue because its taken a month so far if there ius another offer on the table it will take another month and then iot will be pre seaSOn and that will mean buying players just because we need em not becuase they good for club

Agree0 Disagree0

Have heard from a friend, a PA for one of the many lawyers working on the deal that although a basic price has been agreed, talks wouldn't be going on if they hadn't, one of the biggest sticking points to the completion of any deal is ownership of Elland Road and Thorp Arch.

New owners are not interested in paying large amounts of rent to a faceless shadow company and the current administration are being 'very cagey' on who owns this company. I'm guessing this shadow company are reluctant to sell up too due to the nice pay checks there getting from the rent.

Thorp Arch apparently isn't a major problem, other sites have already been looked at. Building a new training centre wouldn't be massively expensive, but to get a new stadium would be prohibitivly expensive to the new group who while there rich don't want to pay for a new stadium as well as the team.

This is just one of the sticking points, KB (or someone of his choosing) still wanting some role on the board at Leeds after the takeover being another.

MOT

Believable10 Unbelievable14

Unless bates keeps at least 10% shares he wont be able to have a seat on the board also where you are wron is if any lawter involved in this is breaking a confidentiality agreement thats where y0u make things up again and any sale of the clube will involve elland road for the simple fact leeds united really dont have an assets apart from yorkshire radio and an estimated curent value of the squadt id 15 to 20 million with yorkshire radio being thrown in too

Agree0 Disagree0

Does not Leeds City Council own Thorp Arch and Elland Road not an Unknown Company !

Agree0 Disagree0

The new owners can buy elland road for just short of 15 million as agreed in the long term lease which was negotiated so thats not a stumbling blockcoupled to the club assets 20 million should be a 35 million

Agree0 Disagree0

At least talks are being made! When do you think the takeover will finalise? Like 1 month? MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I have a mate at elland road and he says nobody is allowed to disclose anything, so all these rumours on here are just make believe, we will all just have to sit tight and wait. sorry. oh by the way, a friend of a friend of a friend of mine has good knowledge that mr blobby is going to be next england manager !!!!!! {Ed013's Note - Thats why its a rumours site and not a 100% confirmed site!}

Agree0 Disagree0

When did Leeds city council become a faceless shadow company?

Agree0 Disagree0

So your mate has disclosed to you that he is not allowed to disclose anything to you.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds city councill dont own elland road and thorpe arch leds baught elland road back from the councill early in the risdale era and we built thorpe arh during the rissdale era too both was sold by the krasner group to reduce clube debts although its rumoured that bayes owns both elland road and thorpe arch through off shore companies thios this cannot be confirmed

Agree0 Disagree0

You will prob find ken bates owned eland road and thorp arch you know how he likes to run things!
JK

Agree0 Disagree0

Any new owners can buy back Elland Road for 12-15Million at any time . That is watertight non transferable contract owned by Leeds utd NOT Ken bates or whoever else owns the ground. If the new owners want the ground they just need to factor that in to any purchase of the club.As for thorpe arch ,well that horse has bolted thanks to Bates and it may be a cheaper option in the future to start from scratch and leave the owners (Bates?) with nothing except the land for housing or other redevelopment.

Neil Warnock is being lined up by the consortium trying to gain control of Nottingham Forest to replace Steve Cotterill.

Souce: People

Steve cotterill is favourite to replace Houghton at birmingham

Believable8 Unbelievable30

The people are just reading sites like this, the fact is Forrest aren't in the middle of a takeover they came out and said that

Agree0 Disagree0

Funny all i could see was were goin to bid 500k for bamba.

Agree0 Disagree0

Okay, let's say this is all true. I'd take it!

Leeds are going through a takeover too, and are a (in my opinion) far more attractive proposition than Forest! So if Forest get taken over too, which, again in my opinion, doesn't look imminent, then I wouldn't be particularly bothered if they take Warnock, as I'm sure our new owners would have everything covered!

MOT - WMS!

Agree0 Disagree0

Good if forest want him bye bye NW.If we get taken over we dont need a manager that wants to retire in a seasons time.New owner,new manager and new season.

Agree0 Disagree0

@origional poster is this only in the people you read as ive not seen that ive read a lot in other papers with paul ince being favourite to take over @birmingham @last poster we better off keeping warnock he knows the squad and who he wants in if the new owners decide on a new manager he will need to get to know his squad which will mean pre season training b4 he can make a move warnock has his list of players and whevers been branded in the press he is about to leave because we not signed anyone since pierce its not lack of funds its all to do with talks las said the funds was put aside for ward but he decided in the end he wanted to remain near family our offer was 1 of 3 offers on the table he had accepted contracts with nall 3 clubs he just needed a signiture

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jun 2012 22:08:43
Gianni Paladini is getting linked to Forest today, he appointed Warnock at QPR, so you never know

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Jun 2012 16:13:03
Okay, time for my rare post again.

The current situation shows that KB is not looking for 'investment'. It must be a takeover bid. If it were investment, details would be released to the public / media on a day to day basis. With a takeover, details aren't released until a conclusive outcome. So, we are going through a takeover. The bid (whatever it may be) must have been accepted, otherwise Bates would have come straight out and said something along the lines of 'there was a derisory bid' blah blah.

The hold up then, is from the FA with the diligence etc. Fair enough. I would say make sure they go through it with a fine-toothed comb, and don't let the takeover happen if there is ANYTHING out of place finance wise. We don't want to go through what we went through in the Ridsdale era.

I'm hopeful, but still wary. Nevertheless, we are an attractive proposition, and would be worth at least double the price in the PL, so let's hope these guys, whoever they are, want to do their damn utmost to get us there!

Keep faith, and I can see some sort of announcement during the next 7 days, and if that is the case, then, I hope, the transfers will commence (albeit a little late).

MOT - WMS!

Mmmm!
It reads like you're in the know, but in real time clutching at straws and reading the same puzzles, as are we all.
Hopr you're right though.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Eloquently put.in addition your comments do make a great deal of sense. I think the thing is the lack of news outlining the clubs stance. There is no detremental effect to stating we are involved in a takeover or investment. If takeover, announce we cannot involve ourselves in transfers. The stories of disunity is what is kiiling the fans. Let us know the position. Phil Bramley

Agree0 Disagree0

Ah I see my post did go through, I was viewing the wrong page. I'm giving my opinion, that's basically it. But being a former business student, and semi-pro footballer with Barry Town (I was there when the Fashanu stuff was going on), the silence seems to make sense, IF it is a takeover.....

Agree0 Disagree0

Your comment makes sense and i hope you are right supporting leeds is never boring mot

Agree0 Disagree0

Sensible post, backed up with good reasons. These are too rare.

Don't know the validity of this but my mates dad was part of krasner's administration and is still good friends with shaun harvey, he told me that there have been 4 bids for leeds but bates is putting an extortionate valuation on the club which is why things have stalled

Believable30 Unbelievable15

Team worth £10-15m. We dont own ground or training area and Bates has used the next three years revenue from season tickets. 'We' cant finance diddly in present state and Bates will be forced to sell out of he doesnt get investment in. Fans will force his hand as new season begins and lack of attendance to watch a pointless season of no hopers will see him out. Pity because I think he's stabilised the club well, but KEN YOUR TIME IS UP

Agree0 Disagree0

Bids aren't put in without knowing the price. There is only 1 bid currently progressing but at least 1 more waiting in the wings

Agree0 Disagree0

LOVE LEEDS..HATE BATES. If no takeover then DONT GO TO ELLAND ROAD.
Its all that tw*t understands.
He would undoubtedly get the message when LUFC are playing in front of 10k instead of the usual 20k+

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh dear oh dear you dont agree to buy anything then argue the price just like buying a house you veiw the property yopu agree a price the lawyers take old and do all relevent checks so price is agreed already

Agree0 Disagree0

To the one who says don't go if no take over surely you understand that an empty stadium would not be good for the team? It wasn't bates who first talked about a take over it was LUST and the club haven't once mentioned a take over just investment. I would like a take over but to stay away if one doesnt happen surely is going to be detrimental to the team and in the long run not good for the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

If we don't get a takeover/investment we won't have a team worth watching anyway.
So i agree stay away and force him out.
Before anyone jumps on me i'm a loyal a fan as you can get but i have had enough of Bates bull.MOT TREVO

A Newspaper Reports that QPR will
release PADDY KENNY for £500k. He's been making all kinds of messages hinting he's Leeds bound. So where is the £500k going to come from if we couldnt do £400k for WARD ? Gonna be an interesting week when NW gets back. Something is imminent and its either money on the table or the departure of KB (who personally I think has done a good job to stablise the club but should either stump up of hand over to someone who can)

Believable12 Unbelievable14

I've heard a few rumours that we had agreed the fee for ward but he chose not to come here. I don't think any official word has come out saying we didn't have the funds, just more doom and gloom from Leeds fans.

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair to Leeds fans it was Phil Hay in the Yorks Evening post who first wrote that the club couldnt raise the money.
So any doom and gloom as you put it originated from the local press.

Agree0 Disagree0

Duncan Castles reported that Leeds had agreed few and terms with Ward. He chose to stay down south

Agree0 Disagree0

Ward decided to stay down south, simple as that...don't post things that you have no concrete evidence about

Heard from a top, top source that Leeds will unveil the signings of Montgomery and Quinn from Sheff Utd as soon as the takeover is complete. Let the good times roll! Finally some top class additions. They will rip up the Championship.

Believable9 Unbelievable39

Personally I think your going a bit over the top about Sheffield United players who did not rip up league one, never mind the championship. We need to hold tight, see if we get the investment/takeover we all obviously want and then this great club can go forward!

Agree0 Disagree0

What planet you on mate? They are average. They wouldnt "Rip Up" the championship at all

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh not again! Tom soars too I suppose?
God help us!

Agree0 Disagree0

They barely managed to 'rip' up league 1 let alone the championship! If there such class players where were they when they got to Wembley a few weeks back - they went missing!

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats sounds about right for bates montgomery hardly started any games for sheff utd cheap and cheerful league 1 here we come

Agree0 Disagree0

Monty was released by them weeks ago I believe, tbh he is not good enough for what we need.

Quinn is decent though!

Agree0 Disagree0

Top, top source? top class? lots of tops here?

Agree0 Disagree0

Montgomery and Quinn i dnt think so..well i hope not, if we do get taken over we need to atract better players than them 2

Agree0 Disagree0

If thats as good as we can do i will eat my hat both no where near good enuff

Agree0 Disagree0

Are you the same guy who'd been saying this for 3 years?

Agree0 Disagree0

Ime sure if the investment is a takeover ime sure warnockk will have a better quality of players to aim for than the liked of montgomery and quin if its only an investment as some have suggested i can see montgomery and quin coming

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree with the last poster. Monty's been around for years -if we do get some investment, there are definitely better, younger players out there (remember we also have the great Michael Brown ticking the gnarly old pro from Sheff who leaves his foot in). But that's a detail -fingers crossed for an infusion of cash and hope (however small!)...Chapel A
