Maybe reading to much into it,watching Swindon v Brighton,no Craig makail smith,is he injured or could he be on his way to elland road,he's not even on bench.

Believable22 Unbelievable10

He is injured mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

He is injured he was on talk sport this morning said he maybe fit for the weekend

Agree0 Disagree0

Until we can sell to raise funds we cant buy any body,so doubt it.

He's on international duty isn't he??

Iternational duty with the scotland squad

Have a look at this guy on YouTube Majeed Waris. Plays in Sweden 1st div. A steal at around 500K. Striker and R/wing.

Fredh MOT

Believable7 Unbelievable12

WOW. Just taken a look, and yes, this guy really does look quality. Abdul Majeed Waris seems to have everything and I don't doubt that he will be moving onto a bigger league and team soon - but will it be us?

Ross for Captain, 100%. New contract by friday, also NW said, 'Saw something on saturday that made me realise' when talking about captaincy. Well Ross set one up and calmly tucked away a pen + he wants to stay, his mrs is happy in Leeds (and u wouldn't want to upset the mrs! ) lol

NickW MOT

Believable32 Unbelievable4

Or he saw that while Norris was captain we kept a clean rubbish and he scored in open play which is harder than scoring a penalty. I hope Ross signs but tbh Norris would be my captain and i always think either centre halfs or centre mids should be the captains.

Agree2 Disagree1

To be fair it would make ross more likely to stay if he was offered captain, no?

Agree0 Disagree0

Austin for captain
No way Ross hope he stays but don't need to give him armband to make him
Rj

Agree0 Disagree0

An interesting gesture I saw was seeing Macca's supportive/good luck pat on the back to diouf when he was subbed. Dispite the stirring of many fans about last seasons dispute and that he wouldnt sign the contract with if we signed diouf it was pleasing to see a professional attitude and to put stuff behind and do what's best for the team. I wasn't at the game but saw it on Warnock cam on weareleedsmot2! Would of happened right in front of him, I have a feeling that along with the other things mentioned this could point towards Ross getting the armband. Just my opinion.
KarlT

Agree0 Disagree0

Please don't give it to RM.
It appears our captain's armband is jinxed and whoever wears it is destined to leave the club in the near future.
I would give it to Brown :P
MaltaWhite

Agree0 Disagree1

Hi, my call is Lee Peltier, oozes class.

Agree0 Disagree0

What he saw was the letter from Bates saying that, if the deal was to go through, he also had to be made Captain for Life. Expect the announcement tomorrow.

Sorry lads, couldn't help myself.

AussieMOT

Agree0 Disagree0

If you give somebody the captaincy it don't always mean they'll stay i.e Snodgrass so I don't personally think Mccormack will get it, I think Pearce or Austin will get it but to be honest im not that fussed who gets it, like Norris said we have about 5 or 6 captains out there
mot Ben

Agree0 Disagree0

Norris I's captain not McCormack and take over defo happens and where gunna make a big sighing some 1 like bothroyd or Rhodes or dj Campbell

People were asking for a Fantasy football for this website, so i thought as i have already done my teams for both i might as well do a league for people to join.

1) The First is the knewly named "Phones 4u Fantasy Football" which is the championships fantasy football.

League Pin is: 8805

2) The Second is the official Barclays Premier League one:

League Pin : 985486-271167

These two are the best two for each league, hopefully ed can put them on both Banter and Rumour page.

Takeover to be completed THIS wk.
No new signings before Wolves visit but looks to be 2 maybe 3 before window slams shut.
Source-well i dont really wanna say who but he was a legend in his day, back when leeds were in CL.
Defender is all your getting from me {Ed013's Note - You don't need a source, its a rumours site where people can share their information without giving away their contacts}

Believable18 Unbelievable9

Fair enough comment ed, but this guy hasn't even signed off with a regular name, so how can that be in anyway believable? Don't get me wrong whoever posted, but i'm on tenter hooks and want something, well not concrete, but gravel at least lol.

NickW MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi. Nick, sorry mate my names Papa d, i post what i hear every now and again.
My contact is an ex LUFC defender who i see regular dropping his bird off at work.
Outta curiousity as i ant seen him for a few days i thought i'd ask him what he thought or if he'd heard owt, he states watch this week with a wink and smile before saying there'll be no more additions before the "Dingles" as he calls em (his words not mine) wolves turn up but possibly a max of 3 in the pipeline before transfer window closure, who he wouldn't say exactly but they're players we thought we'd never have at Leeds

Hey guys.
Just been doing some reading and found an article relating to Sgt Warnock trying to sign Kewell for QPR last season. I hope the rumours of that judas returning to our home are not true! I don't mind Diouf but I honestly don't think Kewell would even cut it anymore.

Secondly according to the YEP it was an undisclosed fee paid for Paynter and it also means it's one less person on the wage bill! Any ideas ED who these premiership strikers Warnock referenced the other day? If I'm honest I'd like Maynard or MCS but I can see Warnock going for someone like Grant Holt and playing him as a target man with McCormack. What does everyone else think?

Sam luFC {Ed013's Note - Boothroyd and Maynard maybe}

Believable4 Unbelievable11

Holt signed a new contract at norwich

Agree0 Disagree0

I back diouf but kewell **** that he has screwed leeds in so many ways .

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope these dudes are taking a huge pay cut, warnock said after shrews game not to expect anyone els in unless they come into some money... which dusnt seem liikely atm(never know though) so realy i tihnk these rumours of cms maynard n other the likes are pretty unlikely imo

Agree0 Disagree0

The undisclosed fee for billy paynter would be only around 100k that wouldn't be enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

If I'm honest I think it's more wages we need rid of before we can sign anyone. We've still got a good £2mill to play with from Snodgrass, even if it isn't up front we can pay on the never never too..
I imagine if Pugh & Nunez/Rachubka is moved on, it would allow us to buy another player.

Just got funny feeling that takeover will be done this week and major signing to be announced at same time my money is on Rhodes
The jyg

Believable12 Unbelievable42

I have a funny feeling That i am going to get a phone call tomorrow but this is probaly not the place to post feelings ! its for rumours

Agree0 Disagree0

Rhodes not a chance in Hell, Huddersfield have already rejected £4m

Agree0 Disagree0

You might be right but my money is on wright Phillips to sign a permanent deal rather than loan

Agree0 Disagree0

Rhodes could be a top striker but hardly proven. He had one exceptional season in League 1. I don't think he's the "major" signing everyone would be happy with. A proven goalscorer at this level is required.

Dazz

Agree0 Disagree0

"Just got funny feeling that takeover will be done this week "

Just got a funny feeling you could be wrong......

Agree0 Disagree0

Do you seriously think SWP is going to take a massive pay cut to come to us?

Most hated manager in footy-Neil Warnock
Most hated chairman in footy-Ken Bates
Most hated player in footy- El Hadj Diouf {Ed020's Note - most hated supporters in britain. no matter what, we'll always cheer on the mighty whites. M.O.T}

Believable55 Unbelievable9

Most hated team in football as well!

Agree0 Disagree0

To the auther of this text we always have been f of and suport man u if u do not like it

Agree0 Disagree0

Then we take all that hate and turn it into the championship trophy. We are united, we are LEEDS UNITED!
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

And guess what...They have joined the most hated team in football....and that's the way we like it.

Come on Leeds......

Fredh MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

2nd most hated Chariman! Peter "Feng Shui fish" Ridsdale will always be top of that list!

Agree0 Disagree0

Joey Barton is worse than Diouf.

Agree0 Disagree0

Come on NW is the best liked manager in the Championship! Smart, experienced, honest, truthful, passionate and a motivator! Which planet are you on pal? I recon it is Mars because it is full of gas!

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont know bout warnock being hated lol but the other 2 i agree

Agree0 Disagree0

Get over yourselves, your not the most hated team in england, Millwall is!!......you've got the biggest gobs thats all!

i wish we had a forward like varney {Ed020's Note - whose we?last time i checked we did......}

Believable29 Unbelievable5

What an odd post. Could be a sad little canary watching over us to see who their next signing might be.
We'll let you have Ken on a free.
What a partnership, Ken Bates, Delia Smith and Stephen Fry. Last of the summer prunes.

Don't worry hudds fans, you'll find your own Varney in time.

We do have Varney - I'm confused

14 Aug 2012 16:30:08
Typical that after years of having a terrible defence we finally sort it out, only to be left with a shortage of attacking options that previously we had in abundance. Let's just hope this takeover saga has a fairy tale ending so that mr warnock can add this icing to our cake!

reading alot about potential icicngs on the cake signings.
pennant..mm not sure about him nowadays.prefer swp if this could ever happen,i wish.
rhodes..cant see how this would ever happen as fulham and blackburn offered large amounts and turned down.would we want to spend 4 mill plus on him.
beckford...yes please but wages?
this could happen if we really wanted him and there was the takeover.
boyd..most likely option for the right side.
cm smith..great worker but hasnt set the world alight in championship.
bothroyd..i think he might be decent shout but hot and cold.
maynard..for me could happen and may be decent.
who would you prefer?,,shrew leeds

Believable14 Unbelievable3

Id love to see david templeton at elland road! he has got all the trickery and class snodgrass has he is just quicker! and he isnt on that high wages at hearts...

Agree0 Disagree0

Rhodes would be quality signing and signal our intentions

Agree0 Disagree0

Anybody mentioned except beckford

Agree0 Disagree0

Preferebly all of them if possible be a great side then deffinatly fighting for promotion then

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd prefer to play a 4-3-3 formation with beckford and bothroyd playing infront of becchio. Doubt it'll happen though

Agree0 Disagree0

Maynard everyday of the week, he'll score goals given the chances, dont want beckford back.
mot ben

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2012 16:08:58
Arturo Lupoli anyone? I have heard some championship/league 1 clubs are interested in him and we are in need of another striker, also he is on a free so NW would like that. Thierry Henry once said of him "he will score goals in any country, in any division, on any training ground - he is a proper goalscorer" but yet one of those youngsters that have failed to live up to expectation. Can he cut it?

Believable12 Unbelievable5

Lupoli was rated as having a lot of potential a few years back and should be coming into his prime. Would have thought he was worth a trial or a non contract like Diouf to give him the once over. Might not have lived up to what he could have so far but sometimes thats just a case of finding the right club. Also if he did come and he looked ok i would guess he wouldn't be asking for ridiculous wages after playing in serie B last season.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2012 15:18:00
Did Bates do any programme notes on Saturday at the Shrewsbury game? Help would be much appreciated!!

Believable2 Unbelievable8

Yes he did pretty generic, but had a foot note saying dont miss next weeks program as it contains police charges and potential investment

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes he did, however nothing about the takeover/investment... that is to be discussed in the Wolves program.

L3EDS

Agree0 Disagree0

He put same cr=p as before. Just goin on about how he's backed the manager, with 10 new signings. I think this man thinks we are thick and that we are all goin, WOW!(NOT!). He should of put, i must try harder.

Hi guys, another rumour is circulating that the takeover deal will be finalised tomorrow and a 2million pound bid will be made for Beckford by Friday (I hope not)

Believable12 Unbelievable24

"Hi guys, another rumour is circulating that the takeover deal will be finalised tomorrow"

Oh wow, lets all go out and celebrate - AGAIN!! {Ed020's Note - woooooooooooooo!!!!}

Agree1 Disagree0

Hope not to what takeover or beckford bid ! we need money and goals from somewhere, although it is very doubtful NW will sign beckford there is cheaper better options out there.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope not to the beckford bid. overrated in my opinion.

Like I said its a rumour. If it wasnt for rumours this site would have nothing on it so interpret the info on here however you want it is not going to stop people posting

Agree0 Disagree0

I did witness a passing conversation between NW and a group at TA in the last couple of days. When asked who his next signing would be he said Beckford, held his finger to his lips as if it were a secret and walked away grinning. I took it he was taking the p155, but you never know?

Agree0 Disagree1

14 Aug 2012 15:02:15
Havent been onhere since LUST stated that the takeover had fallen through? now ive come on and people are saying maybe this Friday. Whats the new news... im lost? cheeersss

Believable9 Unbelievable3

"Whats the new news... im lost?"

Same as it ever was, you know as much as anyone else untill it happens or doesn't......

Agree0 Disagree0

You've not seen the TV/Radio, spoken to anybody or read any of the news sites since last week ! have you been on a mission to the moon or something. LUST back tracked pretty much a few hours after they gave every leeds Fan a heart attack .

Agree0 Disagree0

I think you will find it was Bates who backtracked and not LUST pal.

Agree0 Disagree1

To the reply above, I think you'll find it WAS LUST who backtracked on their knee-jerk statement that the takeover has collapsed. LUST are nothing more than a jumped-up group of fans trying to appear is if they have some input into the club. The reality is that they are simply being used as pawns to try and bypass confidentiality agreements so one side can force the hand of the other. I am sick of LUST worshippers running around with their gourds waving and one shoe in the air cyring 'A blessing! A blessing!' and refusing to realise just how UNinfluential they actually are.

Martin Crainie off to Barnsley
Source: Skysports

Believable25 Unbelievable4

Good he's rubbishe.and if takeover goes ahead we should get better than him.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the emergence of Sam Bryman, together with the option of playing Peltier at Centre Half has rendered the signing of Cranie unnecessary

Agree0 Disagree0

Good luck to him he's decent. But we couldn't guarantee first team football. He could've done better than Barnsley but oh well each to their own.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Aug 2012 13:47:08
I don't know about everybody else but I am sick off reading about the proposed take over. If it comes off fantastic if it dose not then so be it. Let's get behind this new Leeds team including Diouf, The one thing that I do know about this Leeds team is that they all want to be hear and fight for the shirt. No more young kids on loan who couldn't give a toss about Leeds. As for Diouf he has made it known this summer that he wants to play for leeds,and by all Accounts he is on a nothing wage,Music to my ears a footballer who wants to play. I do not aggree whith some things he has done no way.But the man has killed no one. Let's get that dirty Leeds atmospher going no one likes us and we don't care.As the song goes were Leeds united and we don't give a fu!? {Ed020's Note - am with you on the diouf side, and the general leeds squad, they seem hungry for it, out to prove something, bring on this season!!!}

Believable24 Unbelievable3

100% agree get behind Leeds and the manager and players. Let the accountants sought out the bates mess. I want Leeds to be the team everyone hates( I know they probably do allready) for the football we play the atmosphere at ER( sometimes last year it was like a morgue) We dont give a f**k wereLeeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Diouf is just what we needed, who cares what hes done in the past. All that matters is what he does from now on in a white shirt.
I thought we all ways supported our players and team no matter what, when has that changed. Diouf is a Leeds player now and as such deserves better than to be booed. Will the fans booing him still be booing if he helps get us back in the Prem' doubt it, they will be saying what a great addition he was. {Ed020's Note - lets hope that he is just that!!!}

Agree0 Disagree0

I have to agree... NW has done a great job getting this squad together... May lack some quality, but I bet they can give it a right go... Especially if we are behind them. Peter MOT

Agree1 Disagree0

Couldnt agree more, and as for diouf i think hes a quality player and he will be player of the season hes out to prove everyone somthing and i rekon hell do just that

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with the above posts, time to get behind the new Team (including Diouf) & Manager, I would love to hear again ā€œSTRINGS FOR YASMIN BY TIN TIN OUTā€ as the Mighty Whites step out from the tunnel

jermaine pennant signing friday morning, with the takeover annoucement.. Very good source cant tell you who though.

currentley in negotiations with huddersfield about pugh going there way for rhodes and 3 mil..

you will see come weekend..

happy days leeds

MOT {Ed020's Note - would be 2 very good aquistions!!! lets hope your source is right!!!!}

Believable20 Unbelievable37

Heard exactly the same thing... Good times are not far away from Leeds United

Agree0 Disagree0

What when they have turned down four million already from Blackburn don't think pugh worth a million . {Ed020's Note - a player grayson likes and 3 mill seems like a legit offer, lets hope they give it a thought}

Agree0 Disagree0

Not true....Rhodes clearly will not go for less than £5 mill and probably to a lower/mid prem club. Lets be realistic. Would be a great signing but not going to happen. At best might get £400k for Pugh.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't want Rhodes or Pennant personally. Would they improve the squad? Paynter out scored Beckford in League 1, would Rhodes step up? There is better out there, can we get them in time?
Cambridge White

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought pennant was quite important first team player at stoke? But obviously would be great if this is true, would just be happy to hear takeover is complete

Agree0 Disagree0

Its difficult to see this happening if takeover is still not concluded.
I would say that we are looking at Maynard on loan. Possibly one other signing but of little or no money involved.

Agree0 Disagree0

Rhodes away on international duty with Scotland. Cannot see anything happening before weekend

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't see Rhodes happening, maybe Pugh to town but not in a player exchange.
Pennant a maybe sound viable...
I've been told so many times for this takeover dunno whether to believe
VixLufc.

Agree0 Disagree0

He's just signed a new contract with stoke

Agree0 Disagree0

Not sure who your wonderful source is but Pennant is on sky sports website declaring there is no truth in the rumour he is leaving Stoke, also as above Pennant recently extended his contract with Stoke {Ed020's Note - i would'nt take contract things into reasoning, afterall, the great dom matteo signed a four year deal for liverpool then signed for us 3 weeks later.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Pennant would be quality! Not a Rhodes fan. Would much rather have Beckford back. Would be cheaper too.

Agree0 Disagree0

Pennant to stay at Stoke
Winger denies Wigan link and stresses he has no desire to move

Agree0 Disagree0

I seen Pennant at Elland Road today, so looks like a good source mate. Keep them coming!
