Diouf signed to a non-contract...
Surely just a temporary replacement until new player is found due to the way it has been done. if the take-over is still on, NW can use the money he has left to concentrate on a striker, then in January replace Diouf with a more permanent replacement for Snoddy. Just my opinion
RyanMOT

Believable11 Unbelievable23

I would think that it's incase Diouf causes trouble and that we can get rid of him easily enough. There would be no cancellation fee.
RabX

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe trying him out? maybe signs proper contract after a month?

Agree0 Disagree0

If the takeover is completed and NW has money and El Hadji Diouf is doing the business, can you really see Neil letting him go? I certainly can't ...he'll just up his money and maybe even give him a contract to the end of the season.

JDC

Agree0 Disagree0

And what happens if Diouf turns out to be a hit, which I think he will. Just my opinion.

Agree1 Disagree0

Maybe he's there until poleon is bedded in similar playing styles and a cheap replacement suits Santa bates down to the ground

Agree0 Disagree0

"He trained with us on Thursday and Friday and I will make a decision on him before next weekend because if I sign him (permanently) I will want him to be involved against Wolves." - Warnock quote from after the Shrewsbury match.

Looks like he may give him a perminent contract and the non-contract signing was a way to use him in a competitive match, as you can't use trialist in cup or league games?

Only time will tell, if we can get McCormack and Diouf signed this week I'll be happy. Although we definately need defencive cover too!

Heard Templeton has signed a 3 year deal today and is having a medical on monday. Top signing if you ask me, seems to play with more flair than snoddy did, looking forward to seeing leeds get promoted this season.

Believable13 Unbelievable21

Where did you hear this mate? I've heard nothing about it, are you a Millwall fan?
Sy BsE Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think he would sign a contract before a medical DO YOU.

Agree0 Disagree0

He is in the Hearts squad for the local derby game tomorrow and was at the hotel in Edinburgh that Hearts use, this afternoon, so this is made up news by someone hoping to catch attention.

Agree0 Disagree1

No chance, we have no money and just signed Diouf for that role.

Agree0 Disagree0

I wish this were true, it would be the final piece of the jigsaw, especially when Somma is back, hopefully fully fit.

LR, Northants

Agree0 Disagree0

Stop saying Leeds will get promoted a top ten finish is the best to hope for other teams have far better squads then Leeds do

Agree0 Disagree0

When NW took QPR up, they didn't have the best squad in the division by any means, but they played together in a manner that was effective and it worked. Let's do the same again here.

Ye but mine was flash adobe player fault.
DAB radio, asda, 20 did the job for me to almost smash my room to bits when we scored even it was scrappy

Agree0 Disagree0

You'll probably need to update your java. Or uninstall it and then reinstall it. Sorry it's a bit late but should help for future reference.

Hello, I have had trouble all day,with lutv?
But when I used google chrome, it was ok.

Mmm..."lack of creativity...too defensive" ... 4 nil...betchya feel a bit of a dork now

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't get ahead of yourself, it was only Shrewsbury after all

Agree1 Disagree0

Now now lets not get too carried away. need to remember who we were playing.

Agree1 Disagree0

It doesn't matter that it was Shrewsbury we have showed we do have creativity and can score goals.

Agree0 Disagree1

11 Aug 2012 15:13:08
Am I the only one who thinks there is a lack of pace and creativity from midfield. The central midfielders are more defensive and the wingers are varney who has is not explosive atol

Believable10 Unbelievable16

Well three of todays goals came from midfield play/ build up?

Agree0 Disagree0

Lace of pace defo creative enough tho

Agree0 Disagree0

We're all getting carried away, we lack pace. Becchio and RMC are not quick enough and I think Warnock knows it. Bothroyd Beckford or DJ would bring something different. Midfield is very workmanlike but Rudy will be our star

Agree0 Disagree0

david norris named lufc new captain

Believable7 Unbelievable7

Only for this game

Agree0 Disagree0

Not certain - just been shared out in all the games so far. Still think Pearce or Lees will get it

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think Lees is vocal enough to be the captain, but I do think Pearce could do the job, maybe even a midfielder.

Diouf at elland road now. Maybe now part of squad SOURCE yep

Believable23 Unbelievable3

Hes playing shirt number 21

Agree0 Disagree0

On os now as signed for us

Agree0 Disagree1

I would imagine its a pay as you play arrangement since its a non contract signing

Crmd

Agree0 Disagree0

It's a dark dark day even for us Leeds fans who are used to being let down . El Haj Diouf has become a Leeds player and is on the bench - can't see Ross staying now after their bust up last season. The only good news is it's non contract so we could bin him if fortunes change. Colin had to be desperate to have signed him as he makes no secret of his loathing of him.

Agree0 Disagree0

He's signed...

Agree1 Disagree0

Hes on a non contract week to week and hes on the bench today.YEP.

Agree0 Disagree0

If he's on pay as you play we can soon offload him once we have money from player sales to bring in a permanent striker/winger. In the meantime it's good footballing business to provide cover up front, even if everyone hates him

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Aug 2012 12:43:04
My mate works at elland road serving drinks etc... in the players lounge. He said el-hadji diouf is on the bench, squad number 21. Seen his shirt hung up in the changing rooms.

i think we should keep ramon nunez hes a quality player never been given a fair chance if he got a few games think hed open a few eyes.

Believable30 Unbelievable22

I for one can't wait to see the stack of 20p's we get for his sale! Terrible player, weak and very predictable. Sorry just not Championship quality.
RyanMOT

Agree1 Disagree0

Weve never seen him tho and if u see him on youtube he looks amazing but i agree hes done nothing for leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

He's the best player of his style that we have. Nunez is a quality player and a proven goal scorer we should utilise his talent this season

Agree0 Disagree0

He has pace and give 100% every game but very predictable good for the bench but will never be starting 11

Agree0 Disagree0

I rate him not really given a chance in my eyes

Taking my Son to his first Leeds match today, can't wait to see his little face when he enters the ground, he is the same age as I was when i first saw the mighty whites in 1977. Robbo 77 {Ed020's Note - i'm jealous for him, i still remember my first game 24/12/1995 leeds v man utd. 3-1 to the mighty whites.}

I took my lad to his first game against Derby. we were 3-0 down after 30 minutes! But won 4-3 with a Bowyer strike in injury time. Cant remember when it was. My first game was a 1-1 draw at Newcastle must have been around 1969. Saw the Fairs Cup win against Juve and my elder brother sadly no longer with us got on the pitch in the infamous "Tinkler" goal to WBA.

DIouf training with us, he will be ace. Like Warnocks signings, imagine what damage we could do with 2 mill in the transfer market. Takeover, just FOAD Bates, Bates out.
Cambridge White MOT

Believable21 Unbelievable4

Is his agent bob carolgees?! lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Anybody but Diouf. Don't care how much people rate him, he is a trouble maker both on and off the pitch.

Would rather Leeds look elsewhere.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hate the guy tbh,but don't think we have too many options with no money to spend.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm undecided about Diouf... He can quality and flare to our team. He fits in the positions we're looking for. He's on a free, and he was reportedly on 2000 a week at Doncaster, so he should be really cheap.

With all those positives, he's a dick. He gets in fights, spits on kids and is an alround horrible guy. But he could help us get promoted.

Remember the last time we got promoted, we had a player that was a dick. He got in fights, took out a Leeds child mascot with a tackle, grabbed other player nuts and was an alround horrible guy. But he (Vinnie Jones) helped us get promoted.

If Warnock can keep a short leash on Diouf he can help the club in the quest for promotion and that's all I care about this season.

LUFC-Bob {Ed058's Note - Completely agree bob, he is a liability but if anyone can sort him, warnock can!}

Agree1 Disagree0

Where is the proof of any of this {Ed058's Note - Check the YEP, says he's been training with us}

A poster yesterday got totally shot down for saying that Warnock is leaving. Yes it's not true for the moment but he is apparently angry that he has had to sell players, especially one of the better ones in the squad, to fund new blood in the team when he was promised money at the start of the transfer window from Bates (no takeover at that point) to do a team rebuild.

He's happy to stay for now as he has risen to the challenge of kicking off a promotion push on a shoe-string budget (getting some good players imo), he's done it before and his ego won't let him back away from this one last challenge, but if there is no investment in the team in January and he is forced to sell players again don't expect him to hang around.

Believable31 Unbelievable9

I agree with you and I for one wouldn't blame Neil(who is a good manager) from leaving.

Maybe reading well into this but I was at chippy over road from elland road and the portacabin where they print shirts on match days is open, I could see a massive pile of shirts, are they pre printing for a new high profile signing tomorrow? have lust created a massive smoke screen?

Josh

Believable2 Unbelievable22

Looking too much into this I think.could just be doing a mass print of players we already have , or expecting as much today if we have a big crowd.

Agree0 Disagree0

It all sounds a bit fishy to me

Agree0 Disagree0

Fishy. Welcome to the seedy underworld of what is known as Leeds United.

Agree0 Disagree0

They are printing loads as there is a game on today and it's the first of the season so loads of people will want kits

Agree1 Disagree0

Although the staff working in the portacabin are on a pittance they will be sworn to secrecy over the new unnamed proposed signing OMG

Love Leeds, Bates Jog on & on

I really hope Rogers gets a chance against shrewsbury and then Neil sees that he has quality and lets him stay because I think Robbie could play rm for us this season even as cover he is definately worth keeping.

Believable47 Unbelievable5

I think rogers should be given more of a chance but i got a feeling warnock might not play proper wingers.

Agree1 Disagree0

Its to do with money mate. We need a striker so need to free up wages. I think Rogers and Pugh would be staying if Bates got his finger out and signed off the takeover.

Agree0 Disagree0

I can't see anyone rushing to buy him. He has no track record in the league, I am sure he will still be at the club at the close of the window

Agree1 Disagree0

I think the boy should get a chance as he has been unlucky with injuries. However, although Green has been on the left, I think NW is going to plump for Diouf on the left hand side. I hope not.

LR, Northants

Agree0 Disagree0

10 Aug 2012 22:30:17
I know you will ask Who is you source? But genuinely can't reveal that! Have it on very good authority that NW is very much thinking about resigning from the manager's post at LUFC. He was personally telling a friend of mine yesterday! Hope he doesn't resign but can understand why. James

Believable9 Unbelievable37

Utter tosh yet again, there's rumours and there's lies. Warnock wont walk away after pulling in 10 players takeover or no takeover, granted he might be annoyed but tell me someone who has leeds in there heart that isn't!! Warnock has never been a manager to demand thousands/millions on transfers, he has nearly always done the job at clubs with no money that's why like or dislike him many people respect him

Agree0 Disagree0

I think you are chatting a right load of sh=t. Trying to sound like a fellow supporter, saying hope this doesn't happen. get back on your own site. Mind you we are the only site that deals in dialogue.
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

So you can't reveal your source but it's a very close friend that was talking to Neil?! I'm afraid you just spilled the beans. Ah I remember when I had my first beer too
BC

Agree0 Disagree0

He signs 10 players, as if he would walk now!
And if this person is just a friend then you should be able to reveal the source- go crawl back in your hole and don't come back until you have an actual rumour or good thing to say...
RyanMOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah total s*** if he would have walked he would have done it before wasting his time and would never walk before seeing how we perform but he probably is bit pissed at being made hard for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

RUBBISH go and suppoprt tour own club becouse you are not suporting leeds what so ever

Agree0 Disagree0

I am a Leeds fan, for the past 20 years!! I am not saying NW will quit. I'm saying he is thinking about quitting! For clarification, stating 'it's a close friend' is not revealing my source, did i confirm a name; didn't think so!

Agree0 Disagree0

"I'm saying he is thinking about quitting!"

Wow youre telepathic! You know what people are thinking? I saw that woman on Star Trek do that.
