just had it from a good source that the smith deal may be back on! lets see what happens

Believable9 Unbelievable36

Why would we want another useless player? We already have obrien and Paynter to fill that description!

When will people let this one go! Never ever going to happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

As much as I don't believe it or like the guy... We need someone like him in MF

:@(

Agree0 Disagree0

No thanks - get a life if you want a crocked millionaire in the side I dont !

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh no, not again. Enough already...unless you mean the player that Brighton just signed, he's not bad at all.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just what we need Smith, Killgallon and Pugh plus bring back Howard Wilkinson's team of 1991/92.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not unless he takes a massive massive pay cut

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm not stirring just stating a fact here - smith wasn't included in squad for nufc tonight didn't make bench is definitely not injured. Only thing I'd say is if Nufc really wanted to shove him out they'd have left him out of 25 squad but they are very low on numbers to be fair.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes still s**te even with a pay cut,hhes had his time at Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

What crock of rubbish if must say so myself, some people have nothing better to do, other than spout utter trash.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im with most posts on here. we dont want the 'old boys' back this is a new era for leeds united. but people calling alan smith s**t ? he was the heartbeat of leeds utd for years. he was one of newcastles stand out performers the season they got promoted back to the prem. say what ya want about the lad... he alwasy gives 110% which is more than can be said for some of our recent players...

Agree0 Disagree0

Complete and utter nonsense. Leeds desperately need a couple of central midfield players in, smith definitely will not be one of them. I know this is a rumour site, however that doesnt mean you need to post details of your fantasy wet dreams. Stop it please.

Agree0 Disagree0

I saw smith play in a pre season Gateshead v Newcastle United game and he was ridiculed by both sets of fans and rightly so - he is a shadow of his former self. This was one week before the beginning of the season - he was over weight, slow and uninterested and substituted after 60 minutes. Newcastle will think all their birthdays have come at once if Leeds are idiotic enough to pay some of his wages!

Agree0 Disagree0

Smith was great as a youth at leeds, fantastic aggression determination and fitness, since he went to man u and broke his leg his career and game was screwed up....id like to congratulate man utd for being a waste of space and ruining yet another players career

Agree0 Disagree0

Another reason to hate the scum if ever we needed one

Agree0 Disagree0

Most of you lot need to get a grip and grow up. So what if u don't like the player it about what he dose for the club and If he can do the job then let him have the chance. It dose matter who he has played for or who he wonts to play for it about what he can do for the team. The fans are part of the team here at Leeds so lay off the players here or who is comeing and get behind them and push the lads forward not back

Agree0 Disagree0

If we sign Alan Smith i will travel to the Bristol City Game on a unicorn.....it just wont happen! Bates can't offer Gradel a new deal on the wage he wants but he will fork out roughly the same money for Smith, yeh right!

having said that i dont even want him at leeds either!

Agree0 Disagree0

Just heard this from a really good source....the poster of this rumour is a div!

Agree0 Disagree0

Ahaa the awkward moment this becomes true lol i jk i dnt want him

Agree0 Disagree0

Realy cant believe pple are still pushing this rumour about

Agree0 Disagree0

Its not about liking or disliking Smith,its about talent,yes he played well in his day for Leeds,but wouldnt be a good addition now,weve had some cracking players from Man Utd,Giles,Strachan etc,but they were class players,we need to take the club forward not back.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do you believe ever year we are going to get him back? he will never come back, and i dont want him back, have yous all forgot who he left us for?

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets all calm down!! where would he fit in, we are better than him up front. The new finnish guy will be better.Clayton nunez etc. Thanks for the memories Alan but NO THANKS..

Agree0 Disagree0

Get over who he left us for. so what it's his life who are we to judge who he plays for just Coz he a Leeds fan and an ex player dose not mean he has to put his working career On line just so he dose not play for man u. He did what he fort was the best for him and Leeds united he did not work out but least he tried we all would do the same if we was in his shoes at that time and don't be all big man saying you wouldan Coz until u are in that situation u don't no what you would do. I no from expierance and it is hard.

Mat Kilgallon driving out of Harrogate on the Wetherby Rd on Saturday around noon. Saw him going over the roundabout towards Wetherby. He must have had a change of vehicle as he was not driving the white Range Rover Sport....he was in a black 4 wheel drive Merc reg K16 LLA. Probably nothing in it. The lad seems to have fallen out with football. Sad to see him driving around aimlessly on a matchday.

Believable7 Unbelievable21

All I can confirm is this registration is for a 2011 black mercedes estate as stated

Agree0 Disagree0

He still lives up there, that's why you saw him driving around. He has a house up there near scarcroft

Agree0 Disagree0

His family live round Wetherby too so no suprise to see him round there.

I know there have been weeks of rumours regarding Sanchez Watt but he followed me into Leeds from Harroate area on Saturday morning. I presume it was him with a black X5 reg W4TTT and the fact it looked like him. So he was either in the area to go out on the beer with fellow players/friends or he may have come from Leeds training ground in Thorpe Arch !
Hope he is signing as he would certainly add to the squad

Believable10 Unbelievable13

You need your eyes testing, W4TTT is a white BMW X1....why stick with the Sanchez Watt issue? We don't need him....

Agree0 Disagree0

He would certainly add what to the squad? another wage bill? He brings nothing that isn't already there we want better players than what we have not ones who aren't good enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

We dont want watt, he was no good last time, why would he help us this ??
Gj

Agree0 Disagree0

Because hes better than sam and nunez when he started games last season he was very good hes was just unfortunate gradel had a great season. Nunez was shocking against palace and clearly isnt a winger and sam is a ok impact sub nothing more. Watt adds pace skill and a decent left foot we need him and another cb and maybe another rb lees has been poor last 3 games

Agree0 Disagree0

For God's how many strikers and ball players do you think we need - Watt is NOT needed

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll do some digging on watt and see what I can find out - I have a very reliable source - my workmate was seeing him on/off last year 100% genuine) so may be able to find out if there is any truth in him returning straight from the horses mouth!

Whether I think he's worth bringing back is a different matter but my source of info is genuine! Having met him a few times last season, he's still a moody teen and most definitely thinks he's a player (in the non-football kind)

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio, Paynter, McCormack, Forssell, Snodgrass, Sam, Howson, Nunez, Keogh.... FFS how many attackers/attacking midfielders do we need, stop posting crappy b*****ks about forward facing players, it's a decent rearguard we need, Onuaha, Bridge and any other Prem defender are the only ones we should be looking at, Smith etc Forget it!

Agree0 Disagree0

Danny Wilson is a loan target for Championship outfit Leeds United as the Scotland defender continues to find himself out of the Liverpool first team.

Source- (Daily Record)

Think he is a promising full back, but really we could do with some experience and know how in a shaky defence.. thoughts? It's not fair to expect a kid to rectify the situation. {Ed001's Note - he is a centre back who has been asked to cover at left back, I am not sure he is the answer for Leeds.}

Believable13 Unbelievable4

Link please as i can't find it on the daily record site

Agree0 Disagree0

I think sometimes you can get more from younger players as they dont think to much about problems just eager and want to give 110% thats how we did well last season! MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

There was no link I am afraid, it was just quoted on the bbc football Gossip section ( they are usually reliable in any event). Appears to be genuine rumour and circulating last week also.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wilson is quality. I had him on Football manager 2010 in my Leeds team. I eventually sold him to Man City but Barca and Real were sniffing around. lol

Leeds United fans, allow me to introduce you to Mika Väyrynen – the latest in a never ending list of largely unknown players linked with a move to Elland Road.

Whilst it’s always hard to judge a player based on YouTube videos and records from other leagues, spells at PSV Eindhoven and Heerenveen are encouraging.

More encouraging still are the 54 caps he’s collected for Finland.

Here then, we have an international midfielder who has forged a successful career in Holland and is currently available on a free transfer. All seems too good to be true…

According to some reports Mika has already signed for Red Bull Salzburg. However, the Finnish media are now claiming that a last minute u-turn saw him board a plane for England to have talks with Leeds United.

Believable21 Unbelievable8

Seems to be a bit injury prone but strangely the only side he seems to command a regular place is the Finnish national team !

Agree0 Disagree0

Sounds too much like Liverpool "legend" VORONIN for my liking

Agree0 Disagree0

Mika is good friend of Forsell, and they both play for the Finnish national team, cant be that bad has 54 caps, can only add strength to the squad.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeh, ok stop copying stuff from The Scratching Shed

News filtering in from secret sources, leeds to sign Danny Pugh on loan, followed by permanent deal in Jan. Sanchez Watt also to return. You heard it here first.

Believable11 Unbelievable19

Agree with the pugh, i posted this last night and lets hope watt dosn't sign he's poor!

Agree0 Disagree0

We didn't hear it here first, it's just you putting together possibly two of the oldest rumours on here together.

Agree0 Disagree0

We didnt hear it here first. It has been mentioned many many times from various people and in various newspapers.

Agree0 Disagree0
