From a very close source my friend has lunch with a Leeds united legend on a Monday and he told me that there is no such thing that beckford will sign for Leeds he also said we will not pay his wages

Believable51 Unbelievable15

Well that's good, I was worried we were not going to sign him but still pay his wages. Thanks for that.

Agree5 Disagree0

I believe we will re-sign him but in the winter window when he has infuriated Pearson with his moaning about wanting to come home. We will pick him up in end January for half a million. Bargain.

Agree0 Disagree0

It is not the price it it his wage we can not pay haha

Talks have broken down between Harvey and RM and his people!! Both parties are said to be miles apart on new contract. 1 prem and 2 championship clubs are vying for his signature, negotiations are thought to be at advanced stage with one of the championship clubs already, player swap and cash add ons have been offered and club are willing to pay wages that RM wanted from us.

This is not true . When he scored against Shrewsbury only yesterday he celebrated by signing a contract so why would he not he wants to stay and Neil warnock wants that as well .

Agree0 Disagree0

It is true Everton want him, they were scouting him yesterday

Agree0 Disagree0

If he was going to sign he would of done it by now. Let the transfer merry go round begin...ps I thought it was Prince Harry not Henry...QUALITY!

Agree0 Disagree0

This is rubbish, everton are after rhodes, no interest in mccormack, who is still negotiating a new contract

Agree0 Disagree0

Why are we so bothered about mccormack?if he wants to go let him go!we are capable of signing better players than him.for goodness sake, we start next week,mr. warnock doesn't need this last minute,will he stay wont he stay? mccormack has got an elevated opinion of himself in my mind.nw has put a team together on a shoestring with no apparent prima donna'sgood luck nw.

Agree0 Disagree0

You can tell this lad who put this, has never been to ER. If he did, then he would of known what Ross did when he scored.
WAKE UP AND SMELL THE COFFEE!!

Complete and utter bo****ks !
A few clubs WERE after him but now know he's going nowhere !
His actions proved it on saturday afternoon when he scored by mimmicking signature.
Stop with the winding leeds fans up you rival fan of whichever club uou support and f**k off

Agree0 Disagree0

Why is he just mimicking signing the contract. Until he signs the real thing anything could happen.

Jordan Rhodes is 33/1 to sign for Leeds. If KB bets £200,000 we are going to sign him and then does, he wins £6.6m and we get a free player. It's the only way forward

Believable37 Unbelievable12

If only KB could see that genius logic. If only.....

Agree0 Disagree0

Genius!! : )

Agree0 Disagree0

Think he would be getting arrested for that aswell

Agree0 Disagree0

If he got arrested we would win both ways

Agree1 Disagree0

Classic fella, like ur style, let's all bombard KB with this theory !

Agree0 Disagree0

That is genius

Agree0 Disagree0

Bookies have a limit of 1 million pounds payout, nice idea though

Agree0 Disagree0

If Carlsberg did bookies hey!

Agree0 Disagree0

"Bookies have a limit of 1 million pounds payout, nice idea though"

We could all put a bit of his money on for him?

Would even chip in a tenner myself ...lol!

Agree0 Disagree0

Awesome idea. All of Kenneth's "mysterious ownership partners", could all get a million each and combine it. Done. ;)

Diouf out

Grow up mate!!

Dioufy will be class for us, give the guy a chance.

Shut it negative people(polite version!) just get behind the whites whoeva is going to be bankrolling us from now to he end of the season......mot...in warnock i trust.

Agree1 Disagree0

I think poster meant diouf will be out if the takeover happens and if it does happens warnock WILL get the players he wants without a doubt, so you grow up MATE !
Read posts properly before slating folk eh ?
I personally dont mind diouf, on the pitch that is when he IS on song otherwise hes the most disgusting person walking and thats just for spitting at fans

Agree0 Disagree0

Diouf out he is a disgrace. He should never wear a Leeds shirt

Agree0 Disagree2

Leave Diouf alone and support him. He is a player everyone want on their team he smashes it as a player if Snodgrass was half the player he is. Forget what he's done in the past and think what he can do for us in the future

Agree1 Disagree0

I agree with every Leeds fan here saying he is a disgrace, spitting at people is one of the most disgusting thing a person could do to another but at the end of the day if he does sign permanently then I'll be supporting him whilst he wears that Leeds united shirt and does his best for us, we'll let other fans boo him, we stick together and that's what makes us one of the best and loyal fans in the country!

Once he bangs 10-15 goals and assists in this year, i'm sure the opinions will change.

He has a past and so what?
He win be awesome this season and all you haters will be roaming around ER with his name on your shirt and tail between your legs.

Leeds still have no number9 could there be a big signing coming soon, beckford? Dj Campbell?

Believable8 Unbelievable23

For god sake drop the beckford soap box !! We were so one dimensional with him in the side long ball or should it be punt? By passing our midfield ! Ye he scored loads for us but by god missed s*** loads for us too!! Ye scored v scum!so legend for that but no one else hardly scored with him rather have a new No 9 and share goals around the team ! Oh by way Smiths not comming back as he's at Mk dons get that in before you want his return to Leeds for life Wingy Mk mot!!

Agree0 Disagree0

I can guarantee the guy that replied to this is a Becchio fan! Haha - shut up. Someone like Beckford is what we need! Pace in the final 3rd! Young Poleon would learn loads from him. I'd take Beckford back in a heartbeat & move on the fat Argie. So what if no one else hardly ever scored when we had Beckford. Do you think Newcastle fans complained when Shearer scored every week? Goal scorers of their nature are worth their weight in gold. We'd be by far a better team with McCormack and Becks than with Becchio. Pace makes a hell of a lot of difference. Beckford can score and make a goal from nothing on his own. Becchio can not. Thats the difference. FACT!

Everton have been linked with Leeds United striker Ross McCormack after David Moyes sent David Weir to watch him yesterday.


McCormack scored a penalty and set up another in Leeds' 4-0 Capital One Cup win over Shrewsbury at Elland Road, with the ex-Cardiff striker generally at the heart of everything the home side created.

Weir was spotted making notes - setting toungues wagging after Moyes himself watched McCormack play for Leeds against Preston last weekend.

There has been interest from Wigan, West Ham, Huddersfield, Blackburn, Wolves and Brighton in the 25-year-old Scotsman, who has just one year remaining on his current deal at Elland Road and scored 18 goals in the Championship last season.

But Leeds boss Neil Warnock is still hopeful that striker Ross McCormack will sign a new deal at the club.

McCormack turned down the initial offer made to him by Leeds earlier in the summer and the club and the players representatives are now back around the table renegotiating a new deal.

Warnock told Yorkshire Radio: "We are still not sure about Ross, but we are hopeful he will sign a new contract. We are once again in talks with him."
Everton have cash having sold Rodwwell to City today for £15 million.

Believable21 Unbelievable4

As much as i like mccormack and would love him to stay, i think KB will let NW sell him (if he wants that is) and use the coin to intise either maynard, boyd, templeton (Ł1m by the way) or mckail smith.
Personally i'd keep mccormack, but money talks as weve gathered with yet another flying scotsmen leaving from premier league

Agree0 Disagree0

It all depends how much money we get for Ross, whether we would want him to leave or not. A figure of 950k was banded about as the bid Crystal Palace made which is nowhere near enough. If we got 2 - 2.5 then i would definitely move him on and bring in a couple.

Warnock looking to bring in 3 more players. I dont know who they are but it will probably be a CB, ST and a AM that cab play on the wing.

Cranie, Maynard and Boyd would do it for me!

Believable15 Unbelievable5

12 Aug 2012 11:31:23
Liam lawrence anyone? Plays wide right which warnock wants, and is currently a free agent. I think he would be pretty good, but is getting a bit old, we need more youth, David templeton would be better. Speaking of which, on wikipedia it says he will sign for us on 11th august! Obviously its not reliable but would be great if it was someon from leeds or hearts who wrote that. {Ed037's Note - I'd personally love to see Templeton or Boyd}

Believable10 Unbelievable15

Well its the 12th now so.....:)

Agree0 Disagree1

It's the 12th today.

Agree0 Disagree1

He's terrible he was on loan at Cardiff last season and he was abysmal

Agree0 Disagree0

David Templeton would be great but we don't have the money to buy him. I don't want another Portsmouth player, so no to Lawrence

Agree0 Disagree0

Nope, he's past it, even when fit his legs tended to go.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just so you know, it's the 12 of August now

Agree0 Disagree1

My missus is a Forest fan (yes, we have massive domestics over footie!) and she happened to mention that Forest were sniffing around Lawrence and given they've just signed Simon Cox another is a likelihood

Agree0 Disagree0

Lawrence was good 7 years ago.

Agree1 Disagree0

Oi i know its the 12th! But leeds tend to have the habit of not announcing signings for a week after things are confirmed! Ah well its a load of carp anyway, but templeton would be great if we got him!

Agree0 Disagree0

Liam Lawrence is far to slow. And apart from a decent freekick he doesnt have many strings to his bow. I would of loved us to sign Huseklepp to be honest.

Diouf only signed on non contract basis so warnock could take a look at him I.e attitude fitness etc, if he does ok this week I expect him to be given a yrs contract. P.s I,ve never liked him but now he,s got the white shirt lets give him a chance, I can see him getting 8-10 goals in the lge if given a good run in the team.

Believable41 Unbelievable5

He is disgusting, nobody wants to sign him. He was on Ł2k a week at Doncaster. I hope we are not paying him anymore. He is not the sort of player who should be at out club

Agree0 Disagree0

Some caviat's i would put in the contact would be about his behaviour. the list would include (participating in);
spitting,fighting,goading opp fans/players/ref. If he can stop all this and demonstrate some degree of responsibility for his own actions then maybe worth a punt. I still find it difficult to get to grips with him in a Leeds shirt. gonna be tough. LLHB

Agree0 Disagree0

Nobody has hated diouf more than me because of his allround awful behaviour in the past,especially the spitting at people,however i just want us to be successful and if he contributes in a positive way
then i can live with him at the club and will accept him as one of us .leeds,leeds,leeds!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Let's not let this ******** into our club... West Ham didn't sign him because the fans protested.

Agree0 Disagree0

Did no-one see his performance for Donny at ER last season? - give the guy a chance and it's not as if we've never signed players with 'issues'

I think the Daily Star should do its research before going to press.

How reliable is the daily star? I don`t think anybody can take this seriously anymore, Not untill it happens anyway.

Lets all hope it goes true and moves forward so we can look to the future fingers crossed bates out

Agree0 Disagree0

THE Middle East takeover of Leeds United is still ON.

Sources close to the deal insist negotiations continue between Leeds owner Ken Bates and what is understood to be a major financial institution.

An insider said: “Contrary to reports, the deal is still on and is on course to be completed by the end of the transfer window.”

Leeds announced in a recent statement that the would-be buyers had failed to agree a deal within the period of exclusivity and so other offers would be welcomed.

But it is thought that talks are well advanced and the takeover will go ahead, subject to resolving some minor sticking points which have emerged late in negotiations.

The potential owners believe they have the money and the vision to take Leeds back into the Premier League after the work done by the Bates regime to arrest the decline of one of English football’s most famous names.


from a well known paper

Not much of a reliable source. and sorry but just had to mention is the (I) key missing from your keyboard.

Reports from a popular newspaper (rhymes with 'the fun') is that they expect the proposed takeover to still go through, around when the transfer window closes.

Ross mcormack will sign for everton next week

Agree0 Disagree0

12 Aug 2012 01:06:41
Im shocked knowone has put this that was in the cop end today, which i was. When Maccormack scored his penalty, he ran to the cop and held up his hand and did a signing mimick. Which we all went mental for. So i exspect it to be on the OS within the next two days.
Would just like to say aswell, well done lads that was a great desplay you put on. Kenny is by far a great keeper with the few saves he did at the start and the shot from Rudy, which set up the goal was class. Bothe are going to be legends for next season. Little Byram is the stand out lad for me. Warnock, get this lad on a longer contract before its to late.
Don't know about you lot but i say bring on the Wolves.
SGT WARNOCKS BARMY ARMY!!

I saw that on sky sports mate made me laugh . he will defo sign now .

Agree0 Disagree0

I was in the Kop yesterday as well. Saw it too. There's no way he'd have done that if he wasn't going to sign. Why would anyone in their right mind want to leave Leeds? Cashy

Agree0 Disagree0

Yea that was definitely the sign, although I first thought he was jerking off! But he will be signing a new contract

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think we should bet too over excited, we have beaten the mighty Shrewsbury! Who dominated spells of the game. This is just papering over the cracks

Agree0 Disagree0

I was there, i turned to mate and said look at ross' celebration, but he was too busy looking at green!

Agree0 Disagree0

There always one person, we played well in what was a potential banana skin, players gelled well, we scored 4 and kept a clean sheet, no cracks u muppet, a job well done

Agree0 Disagree0

Problem here is that he hasn't signed as of yet and David moyes and David weir has being watching him for everton

Agree0 Disagree0

11 Aug 2012 22:38:10
Good result today, even if it was a league cup 1st round victory. One nagging concern...what is holding up RM and signing a new contract?

Believable26 Unbelievable1

It might be now that diouf has signed, apparently he spat at him last season, but surely Neil would have had a word with Ross to test thd water I can't see him risking an unhappy camp right before thd start of the season

Agree0 Disagree0

Mccormack wants to stay but not if the wages are not good enough simple as that . he will be hoping for a much better contract than he was last offered

Agree0 Disagree0

Maccormack scored yesterday and ran towards us in the cop and and did a signing gesture. So the lad is goin to sign. I would put my house on it being on the OS in two t three days.
