Just got off the phone to my brother who is on his honeymoon in Dubai, according to him were all over the papers over there, mostly good news, very small bad.

Believable7 Unbelievable36

Funny how the TO is mentioned more abroad than it is in local press. Can anyone source this like a link to an online version?

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of old tosh.

Agree0 Disagree0

Absolute rubbish I am in Abu Dhabi I have read The National and he other tabloids today and nothing! Just type in'sports news Bahrain' and surprisingly theres nothing on there either! Puppy fan get back to your own board!

KTJ Abu Dhabi

Agree0 Disagree0

In The National today which is an UAE newspaper it says Although a deal was agreed with Ken Bates to purchase his majority shareholding, the group failed to meet the payment terms by the July handover date and now seem unlikely to complete. That is not positive. Check it on line at the papers website

Agree0 Disagree0

Your sister-in-law cant be anything to look at then if your bro spends more time reading and scanning the UAE newspapers on his honeymoon and have time to report to you about it.

Just picked my son up from acadamy training wi leeds under 14s. was stood outside my car, and overheard a guy in a suit on phone. he was talking about signing some argetinian wonderkid for the under 15's academy, who will burst into the first team this season (january). his auntie moved to meanwood 4 years ago so will be iving with her. big story. MOT

Believable13 Unbelievable36

Firstly what a load of bull and even if he was to sign he'd be at norwich before long

By John Fitz

Agree0 Disagree0

Its true, Santiano Ezel Brazagi, 15 yrs of age, is coming to Leeds, but only on youth terms, definitely one to watch though, stacks of potential.

Agree0 Disagree0

Must have been some phone call to receive all this information about the kids background , burst into the first team in January and he's playing for u15's ? Do us all a favour and disappear back onto your own teams site

Agree0 Disagree0

It's true boys. My son is in u17's and apparently all the coaches are talking about him. They've pulled off a stormer.

Agree0 Disagree0

Might be true. U14s were training tonight. Also budget been released for new astro at TA after long wait. Maybe investment arriving?

Agree0 Disagree0

Pretty sure were not allowed to sign argentines till there 18 or there not allowed to move to the uk till there 18 from an argentine club

Agree0 Disagree0

Love these sorts of rumours! Where's that Monty guy in the juniors? We were told he was going to be bursting through by now...Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

Think I will try and ask his auntie, an Argentinian lady in Meanwood shouldn't be too difficult to track down.

takeover consortium are getting very short on patience and are prepared to finalise whatever the outcome. personally think it wil be kenbates in charge for the forseable future. we are in trouble
joe leeds

Believable30 Unbelievable20

Ya with ya on that one. i think they walked away ages ago. now at pompey ha

Agree0 Disagree0

I personally think that its gone on too long for them to walk away now.
It seems they're both as stubborn as each other in getting what they both want.
Bates must want out otherwise we wouldn't be in the predicament & consortium want us.
My guess is one must give eventually, the consortium to give KEN THE MASTER-BATES near enough what he wants to start with the rebuild.

Agree0 Disagree0

How many times has this been, and going to be posted, yet still the alleged takeover rolls on. You need to be more specific in future and try and name a RELIABLE info source

Agree0 Disagree0

To the first reply if they are now interested in Portsmouth they can't be leeds fans so good ridense to em if that is the case

Agree0 Disagree0

To last poster ok its wednesday now expect to hear something friday after more specuation tomorrow . my guess is they wil give up becaus ebates wont sign indemnity clause. they cant buy into a company when they are not sure about all the facts. but like i said friday will probably be the day definately before weekend
joe leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Specific as in put an ounce of truth in to your post, rather than the existing CRAP

So Birmingham are the latest club to be linked with a takeover. Along with the Portsmouth takeover the leader of the consortia's have been named! Why is it Leeds are sworn to silence? Ken you need to go!! MOT

Believable28 Unbelievable4

Ya they fed up with waiting if there ever was a takeover!!!

Agree1 Disagree0

That because they never put a bid together all been lies and rubbish.

Agree0 Disagree0

The name of the people who put a bid in is well know and has been in every newspaper as well as on here. What are you talking about!!!!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

You can't put a name to something that does not exist

Agree0 Disagree0

Original poster here. The only names Of potential bidders that have been given in the press are pure speculation, not once have they spoken out and been confirmed! The one thing we do know is that GFH are brokering the deal. So what r u talking about?

Agree0 Disagree0

Ex-Everton starlet Jose Baxter looking for a club, broke also dt's of club and international youth goal scoring records. Has turned down offer at Everton to find first team football. Could be a cheap option (assuming compensation can be agreed?) and a club like Leeds and a manager like Neil Warnock could be just what he needs to find that early form? We need some numbers in the ranks!

Robbie.

Believable25 Unbelievable7

He has been released by Everton and has no club, so there would be no compensation. He was at Tranmere last year on loan and didn't really set the World alight, but in our situation we don't have a lot of choice

Agree0 Disagree0

Wasn't sure that even though he refused a contract whether Everton would be eligible for compensation. Yeah agree he didn't set the world alight at Tranmere but neither did Livermore at us, then he gets a call up for England... WTF is that all about!! But anyway I digress. Maybe a strong Manager like Neil can shape him the way he did taarbat?

Robbie

AA

It's on it's off, it's on it's off, it's Thursday it's Friday, why don't we all just wait for an official announcement instead of us all getting p&$$3d off with each other, I know it's a rumours site but come on.

Agree0 Disagree0

On on on, off off off on on on off off off. Why do people try and think they no what is going on, eventually it will be made official. Who will be the lucky supporter to guess the day and win a gold fish..... On On On We are Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

Really hope this all comes true. It would be a huge lift to us all. MOT.

Agree1 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

When I read this it made me feel very happy fro 10 secs, i hope you are right, but , were did you get your information from ?

Agree1 Disagree0

I would dearly love to believe you. I would be absolutely overjoyed if this happened even more if yur time scales are correct

Agree0 Disagree0

ps forgot to say that me dog said 'FACT' aswell. Sooo it must be true,mustn't it!? Ha

Agree0 Disagree1

Nearly all correct , but its micheal tongue and siojhdofhjofjhfojth(im joking with spelling, no grammar police please) from stoke not beckford and jones , Derry is a maybe because he is in the 25-man squad at QPR

Agree1 Disagree0

Did you get this info from someone at Thorpe arch, cos I heard the exact same thing this morning from my mate who works for the academy. Big movement tomorrow apparently on transfers and takeover

Agree1 Disagree0

Wow. I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. We are so lucky to have such reliable sources of information. Like waiting for Christmas!

Agree0 Disagree0

And you Know this HOW????
MJB66

Agree0 Disagree0

Ooooooo how i wish any of it was true..... As I imagine most of us on here will do. I will take this with a pinch of salt large enough to fill the atlantic ocean and keep on dreaming of the day when the takeover is complete and messi is wearing the white shirt.

Agree0 Disagree0

How come some people on here say they heard from ta or elland rd it beeing done thurs truoble is WHICH THURSDAY!!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

IT WILL NOT HAPPEN. NEVER WILL.

Agree0 Disagree0

Judging that Derry is in qprs 25 man squad this sounds like a fib to me

Agree0 Disagree0

Nothing will happen tomorrow but friday the 14th will be the day its all anounced. my guess is it will be that they have walked having gotten fed up with bates' demands and constant changes to the deal. at least it wont be friday the 13th so u never no maybe some good news . MOT LLHB
joe leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Glad to see a positive post even if it doesnt come through... need some hope to be restored after all the scaremongering on this website

Bring on the rest of the season MOT!!

Agree0 Disagree0

On off on off, in out in out, ya shake it all about, am sick of this saga, the lack of any credible information from a reliable source just keeps fueling stupid rumours.

take over 95% off ken bates not selling now. neil warnock to leave b4 cardiff.

Believable24 Unbelievable11

You r boring ! you dont know like we dont know , there are more people saying they are still talking , and how can it be 95% off , it is is eiether on or off . buyers dont just say oh its 95% today. NW is not walking before cardiff. thanks for youre crap post

Agree1 Disagree0

Sorry how can you say 95% off its either on or off person

Agree0 Disagree0

How on earth can a takeover be 95% off. Stop making things up, you know nothing. I believe we will hear something by the end of the week, there so many rumours flying about something must be happening

Agree0 Disagree0

How can it be 95% off its either on or off simples.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hear by end of week!!! been saying that for bloody weeks.its not going to happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock not off anywhere don't you think he would off gone now with all the crap what's going on at leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

If KB is not selling "Leeds United" then its off completely? 95% is saying he doesn't want to sell but if they offer a stupid amount then he will.

Agree0 Disagree0

Haha love this.. 95% great figure..

Agree0 Disagree0

95%off ha ha what a plum!

Agree0 Disagree0

WARNOCK was slected by KB as manager with no special tie ins or to please any potential investor. WARNOCK is KB man. So why would he walk you complete person. If this is your valid idea of a working commitment may I suggest you leave the 'car wash' your working in and go back to college to learn a little more. Equally I found the frontline in Afghan a rather good reality check on life...... 'Check it out bud'

Agree1 Disagree0

Done by end of week!! us fans the only ones been done. players in by end of week how many weeks that been said all rubbish . not going to happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

Its all rubbish still be doing this at xmas. can i have new sponge please be waiting so long its worn out.

Leeds buyers have turned their attention to portsmouth as Ken Bates is not playing ball.

Believable13 Unbelievable52

Theyre not the same bidders.
Al fahain is in front for PFC

Agree1 Disagree0

Is this a guess? or do you have some information to substantiate your claim?

Agree1 Disagree0

So 2 middle east consortiums are now fighting each other to buy Portsmouth?

Agree0 Disagree0

He tweeted and confirmed it.

Agree0 Disagree1

That may tease him out... if he was interested in buying them after this.

Agree0 Disagree0

They have said its nothing to do with them believe it our not there are more businessman in that part of the world

Agree0 Disagree0

Getting sick to the back teeth with all this takeover sh!te if it's going to happen it will if it does'nt were stuck with the old fart he can't live for ever.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would they want to buy them knowing that when they come out of admin they get a 10 points taken off them...

Agree0 Disagree0

The buyers who have bid for pompey have nothing to do with the group still looking to takeover Leeds 100% fact.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would a life long Leeds fan attempting to buy Leeds Utd switch his attention to Pompey ? You honestly think he has any desire for anything other than Leeds ? You talk utter crap my son

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds boss Neil Warnock is snapping up Michael Tonge on loan

Believable48 Unbelievable9

Don't believe you... you're just making it up, he's after someone much better, someone who hasn't played under him before, plays in a white shirt in his club's home games and has made a number of appearances for his country ... you can probably find him mentioned somewhere on this site.

JDC

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair he is looking at Tonge too he has said himself he has looked at a couple and it is widely reported now that he is looking for Tonge so before you say the OP is making it up have a look on the news about the team not just pure rumours.

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock is after 2 midfielders and has put several names forward to bates so obviously we will end up with the cheapest or the best posible saving we can get as bates still thinks we should pay 1990's wages to players

Agree0 Disagree0

Of all the names linked to us i have to say that michael tonge has got to be the worst by a mile , he has somehow managed to pass himself off as a proffessional footballer god knows how he is so so poor its untrue and will bring absolutely nothing to our team or squad please let this rumour be false

Agree0 Disagree0

Could be good for us at least warnock knows how he plays and were so short of midfielders.

Agree0 Disagree0

JDC Read the papers before posting rubbish this rumour is all over them

Agree0 Disagree0

Scott Spencer of Hyde England C International 34 games for Hyde 33 goals use to be on Everton's books and still only 23 years old

Believable8 Unbelievable15

The next Beckford...

Agree0 Disagree0

Probably a better bet than Michael Tonge.

Takeover off. Warnock preparing to walk. Has told KB to search for new manager but such is NW's professionalism and regard for fans he is only going to walk when the fixture list eases off so not to leave a good side climbing the division in the lurch. Looks like we got Colin til the next international break then. Bates is a disgrace but gets to leave the club on brink of a shambles. Not right.

Believable30 Unbelievable65

Where is your proof pal? Yeah it's dragging on and were all getting frustrated with lack of info(confidentiality clause) and crap being reported in various news outlets in Dubai. Yet nothing on OS and most reports are people's opinion, so till its all dusted or officially announced as over we still live in hope that Bates will be leving us soon

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of nonsense. I may not know much about Bates, but if he was faced with a manager who wanted out, he'd tell him to walk, then take great pleasure in calling him to the press.

He's certianly not the kind of person who'd go "Oh yeah, neil, It's kind of bad timing, do you think you could hang around for a few weeks, then go" is he?!

If he was going to walk, he'd've done it by now. He came in for a reason, he's trying to achieve his goal, and he has no doubt made promises to the players he brought in, and those he persuaded to stay. He's not going anywhere unless new owners come in and don't want him, or Bates decides it's not working.

Agree0 Disagree0

Original poster is correct, if you read the last two words.

This IS 'not right', in fact its a total load of garbage........

Agree0 Disagree0

To 2nd replier. KB does have a vested interest in NW staying on as long as possible - to avoid a fans revolt for one!! You think he doesn't know the mood of fans? Why you think it's reported NW never signed his contract? You forget the different dynamic between Ken Chairman and NW manager. NW asked for buying power but didn't receive it!! Assurances were not adhered to. NW is merely being a gent by continuing at this point. To first replier this is why there are leaks in the media in Dubai now. It is a breach of confidentiality but Bates ain't gonna sue coz he knows he's behaved badly and the consortium would rather use the Dubai media as channel to communicate to fans than keep quiet and sue for due diligence costs coz Ken changed the deal. As I understand the consortium want to proceed regardless but their lawyers simply won't do the deal with pre-historic Bates because they'd be too exposed to law suit and insurance difficulties themselves. In short Bates has made the takeover impossible.

Agree0 Disagree0

If we were to believe you non Leeds fans for posting this rubbish the takeover was called off (100% definite) weeks ago ! How many people said it was going to be called off last Thursday ? Lots ! The facts are that anyone "in the know" certainly isn`t going to leak any information out to the muppets who continually knock our club. Just like Bates - support the club or get out of the club ! It really is that simple !
