Doubt hes physically signed as he was travelling back from his foreign holiday today!
Still think hes coming and Lonners is replacing Jussi at Bolton though.

Lol might have been a bit hasty there bit excited but apparently he is definately on his way hope so as it will put a bit of confidence back into the fans and we can all get relax a bit about what has been going on last few weeks

I am a big leeds fan i am also good friends with neil warnock i was on the phone to him last nite and i so happened to ask what was goin on about the takeover he said that he could not talk about about anything about the deal part from the club have had 15 different bids and hopes if everything does to plan the deal will be done by end off june then i asked him about aidy white he has had our final contract offer on the table less then what he wanted and will sit down with him tomorrow to see if he will take it witch he dont think he will and said he has busy week coming cant wait to get started steve

Believable3 Unbelievable29

15 different bids eh,nice one Walter,it is Walter Mitty isnt it,dear oh dear,the posts on here just get better,a right laugh,keep up the good work bud.

Agree0 Disagree0

So again nothing new here - NW is going to be busy, which is surprising since he's been away for two weeks and now trying to put a team together. I would have thought he would come back and put his feet up on his desk at ER and have a rest !
Maybe these posts need censoring at source as they are getting both irritating and pointless. I'm not sure how much longer I can be bothered to read this dross - one day when someone says ; FACT ! there will be an announcement, but it will be down to luck rather than anything been known in advance.
Did you want to call Uncle Ken and ask him what his thoughts are too - maybe borrow his yacht as well?

Agree0 Disagree0

What a lot of absolute unconvincing twaddle.
Why don't you people who invent this crap ever leave your mark.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of rubbish.. If we all post you a question to ask Neil can you ring him and post the answer back .

Agree0 Disagree0

Load of bull! White went on holiday yesterday.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ime gob smacked 15 bids if there is still 15 bids on table buddy it wioont be over by end of june because when the winning bid is in place it will take 3 weeks to do due dilligence and then fa have to do there owner checks btw chelsea gonna let us have torres for a season long loan and also terry and lampard i think this is more realistic than the origional post milky

Agree0 Disagree0

Yea bull or it dont take 3 weeks 4 a bid look at rangers

Agree0 Disagree0

If he is your mate why have you sitched him up by telling us what he told you in confidence...tut tut

Agree0 Disagree0

Its almost certain aidy white wont sign. he has been offered less then what he is already on.

Ollie Johnson the free agent is joining Leeds on a trial basis I know his gf and being local is one of his major factors in wanting to join Leeds

Normanton white

Believable6 Unbelievable11

Trial all he will earn tho .... not the class of player we require mate - look at his record ( poor league 1 level really )

Agree0 Disagree0

He wasn't good enough for Oxford so def wont be good enough for Leeds!

Agree0 Disagree0

Pmsfl where you get em from he was deemd surplus to requiremenst @oxford he is 24 om my this takes the biscuit

Agree0 Disagree0

He has scored 25 goals in 116 matches in the lower or non league - what a signing to push us into the PL. Maybe Roy Hodgson should consider him for the World Cup qualifiers.
I'm also thinking of signing up my cat on 7000 / week for LU - make a great goalie, born and bred in Leeds and loves any material that's white so a natural signing for NW

Agree0 Disagree0

Excuse my ignorance but who is he? I've never heard of him.

Agree0 Disagree0

I do know him, hes a lad from horbury(wkaefield) played against him a few year back when he played for nostel minors, he dint do too bad with norwich in there surge to the prem.

Agree0 Disagree0

You havin a laff? Del boy average at best saw him play down tufr qiute a bit not the quality we need...

Motherwell midfielder nicky law will sign next week , Nw had this player at sheff u. And is looking to bolster his midfield quality player on ball ,...

just seen jason pearce at harewood house, he was with his family. i shook his hand and told him how much youd love it at leeds. He said Warnock is not going anywhere he is just as excited as he is for the season! i also asked about the takeover situation but he replied 'watch this space!'

For the first time in a long time I've seen a post I actually believe, so if it's not true MOT! I'll hunt you down. :@)

Nice believable post but jp wouldnt know what was happening on takeover so that will just be him pretending to know

Agree0 Disagree0

To the doubter ... dont be daft NW will talk with Jepson daily - its their job

Agree0 Disagree0

Amazing how many people bump into players this week when most are still on Holiday abroad.

Agree0 Disagree0

Especially Alan Smith, seems to be everywhere. Bumped into himself last week in Sainsburys car park in Milton Buzzard. Paradox.

I guess we can put the KB buying Rangers link to bed now as the consortium are all Scottish businessmen...

Believable21 Unbelievable3

Funny how even Rangers can get a buyer sorted quickly ,just shows how useless Mr Bates is.

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought Ken Bates was the stereo typical Scotsman - he certainly doesnt like spending any money!

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates was never going to buy rangers lol ppl just trying to put a dig in... the rangers owners have been involved since the beginning no surprise there

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would anybody but a Scotsman or Scotsmen want to buy Rangers. They have better leagues in Iceland.

This is just what I've heard and might happen after the takeover but apparently Neil Warnock is interested in Doncaster midfielder Simon Gillett and QPR defender Matthew Connolly. Only a rumour though.

Believable2 Unbelievable18

Please once and for all there will be no takeover, investment maybe takeover no.

Neil Warnock has said he cannot wait to face Shrewsbury in the Capital One Cup (League Cup). The rumours of him leaving are absolutely rubbish! MOT

Dan lufc

Believable22 Unbelievable7

Going on previous seasons Neil warnock plays reserve teams in cup competitions and sticks to the league for his 1st team squad this just doesn't add up

Agree0 Disagree0

At the moment, our first team squad is pretty much the same strength as a reserve team squad. Need some signings!

Agree0 Disagree0

I think NW is weighing up his options trying to keep us sweet

24 hours ago Harry red knapp was adamant he wasn't leaving spurs and whats happened today he's quit

He's probably waiting for the forest takeover to be complete before leaving

This is not bull for a start it's what happens in football and we have to live with it

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont think redknapp quit! was he not shown the door?

Agree0 Disagree0

Redknapp didn't quit he's was sacked. Bates will not sack warnock and warnock is no quitter therefore there's no issue.

Agree0 Disagree0

As the capital one cup starts befor the league n/w will use this game to help gel the team he wont use res for this game

My mate knows green he wants to join Leeds but he's had no contact with any club as yet he says clubs probably waiting till after euros just in case of injuries etc

Believable11 Unbelievable21

The way paul green played last night for ireland(and keith andrews)not sure they're good enough for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

With what I saw of him playing for Ireland last night I hope this guy can do something special on a consistemt basis because I wasnt impressed...mind you what do I know ?

A little rumour knocking about Northern Ireland is that Leeds looking at Steve Davis. No real concrete evidence....its just the talk going around by some Rangers fans. Could he be the new strachen. Would love to see him at ER

Believable22 Unbelievable9

If hes as good at football as he is at snooker then sign him up. Dan lufc {Ed013's Note - He has retired now so maybe he did it for a career change in football!}

Agree0 Disagree0

Northern Irish Leeds fan here would love to see Stevie at our club he's a fantastic player. Undoubtably Premiership quality

Agree0 Disagree0

Steven Davis will find his way to a Premier league team if he's on his way out.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds got so far behind in last seasons championship we needed snookers to make the play offs

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jun 2012 12:52:29
Heard rumours warnock walking but obviously not true looking at articles on the OS.
Any further info on who's leading the takeover, so many names spinning around i cant keep track?

Pin

Believable4 Unbelievable6

No one actually knows tbh. The way Leeds do business they tend to keep there cards close to there chest. We will all know once the deal has been done.

Mikey

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah but was just wondering if anyone had read anything new on twitter etc...
What annoys me is we could be waiting for the deal to be done for weeks as we've not been given any sort of time scale on the takeover.

Pin

Agree0 Disagree0

No takeover, maybe investment but no takeover - people need to lower their expectations a little.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't believe the rubbish on social networking sites. Just keep checking OS, YEP, BBC & SSN site for updates on the proposed takeover/investment.

Mikey

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes i have but YEP doesnt seem so reliable either these days and theres not much about it on the BBC SSN or OS so was just trying to gather any bits of info i could find.

United manager Neil Warnock has confirmed that his sole focus in the coming weeks will be on shaping his squad for the new season.

Portsmouth captain Jason Pearce was the club's first arrival, joining just days after the end of the season, and the boss is busy preparing for what he hopes will be an influx of new faces before the new campaign gets underway in August.

"The main thing I'm concentrating on is the squad and what we can do to strengthen," he said.

"I know what I'm looking to achieve before the start of the season to give us the best opportunity of finishing as high as we can, and that process is ongoing."

Media speculation has seen the boss linked with a number of players, but he is keeping his targets close to his chest and has refused to comment on individuals.

Believable12 Unbelievable1

Only as high as we can ? didnt he mention promotion not so long ago ? bit of back tracking i think.

My mum and dad are currently on holiday with Ronnie Jepson and his wife and he said to my dad that Neil Warnock will not walk away from the club and that exciting new developments are in the pipeline so who knows what that means!

Believable15 Unbelievable13

14 Jun 2012 10:43:47
The likely delay is another couple of bidders have made an offer and Ken wants to look at them all for the hope of a better return.

The first NDA will have expired but the offer still be on the table.

Believable9 Unbelievable8

NDA's rarely have set periods written into them. NDA's usually only expire on completion of a deal. If a deal is not complete there may be an extended period of confidentiality

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jun 2012 10:34:32
Takeover is off. Look at all the evidence. Decisions around pricing for next season all working. Ken and Neil meeting in Monaco. It's not happening. {Ed013's Note - The OS site only ever said investment}

Believable7 Unbelievable13

Takeover may be part of a long term deal with initial investment allowing progress in terms of ongoing capital. The investment may also involve a number of shares being owned by the investors.
And before anyone say's capital to spend on hotels and casinos both of these will be built with developers money not LUFC.

Agree0 Disagree0

This means nothing. QPR set their prices last season then when the new owners came in just before start of the season they reduced the prices.

Bates can still set ticket prices for next season, it doesn't mean anything. If nothing is official yet he'd have to get the ball rolling just in case.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't see any investors working with an octogenarian who is one instance of football insolvency away from failing the fit and proper persons test, known for his compulsive slanderous outbursts, at loggerheads with fans and anyone who disagrees with him, and runs the club as tyrannical despot.

Let's face it - any potential investor would likely question whether Bates has any business acumen whatsoever. Look at the new Premier League TV deal and what the clubs will make from that. Bates seems to believe a hotel will allow us to compete. Well, the entire Hilton Hotel chain makes about $100m per year. Laughable.

Agree0 Disagree0

Investment is quite a vague word- is a takeover an investment into a football club?
Just thinking that's all- we all know Leeds utd are vague about everything since bates in control
White teeth

Agree0 Disagree0

The takeover is certainly not off. We would have been told by the club.
Just hang on a bit longer and see what transpires.

Agree0 Disagree0

And if takeover/investment talks go on longer than planned and no ones set the prices etc thats not very good business sense is it?

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jun 2012 10:29:21
well all the rumours about warnock leaving must be untrue in an interview on the official site warnock is looking forward to facing shrewsbury and the start of the season milky

Believable11 Unbelievable2

Harry Redknap denied leaving Spurs Tuesday...............

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not leaving. Things are going on behind the scenes but he's not going. He must know what's happening....

Agree0 Disagree0

Not sure - the other quote on the site states that Colin wants to sort the squad out before the start of the season, and is looking to finish as high as possible..... What happened to players in ASAP, and only interested in Promotion... I wonder if these statements are actually from Col. Gingerstreak.

Agree0 Disagree0

Harry Redknapp said he hadnt quit. He didnt say he wasnt leaving...areeve1605

Agree0 Disagree0

I could not agree with Gingerstreak more. NW stated he wanted players in before going on holiday in order to mount a serious promotion charge. Now it's getting players in before the start of the season to finish high in the league. They are 2 very different messages, with 2 very different budgets attached.

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jun 2012 10:08:42
Warnock sounds happy enough on the Leeds OS with regards to the first game against Shrewsbury in the Cup. The good points here are that the press release is current as the draw has only just happened and that he must be happy with whatever is going on behind the scenes to say what he does, so maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel MOT

Believable8 Unbelievable1

I do not want to pi$$ on anybodys bonfire but we do not know for certain if nw is walking or staying.
look at the rumours about redknapp.
nw as manger, will continue to be shown on our website as "doing" his whether or not he has decided to resign/walk. up until the announcement of his departure(for whatever reason) he will be shown on our website to be doing the job he is paid to do. up until then we do not really know!!

Agree0 Disagree0

14 Jun 2012 10:05:14
Paddy Kenny deal nearly done would be second good signing keep bringing them in. YEP

Believable15 Unbelievable7

It's only a good signing if Lonergan stays. Bad signing if he becomes the No.1.

Agree0 Disagree0

I am not sure why we want kenny? We have a good young keeper for backup to lonergan. Kenny is 34 and I do not think better than lonergan.

Warnock has walked out on Leeds united its not official yet I was in the club shop half an hour ago and the staff were whispering I approached the counter and said us that true and they fell silent believe what you want out of this

Believable3 Unbelievable33

Probably heard them say the manager has just walked out.... Probably the shop manager walking out for a coffee... 'U plonker' :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Shame you haven't read the latest interview with him re cup tie against Shrews and getting new players in for the new season. But nice try amigo!

Agree0 Disagree0

So then he releases a inyerview on club site saying he cant waut to get started milky

Agree0 Disagree0

Absolute BS i used to work in the commercial dept and i can say with confidence that people in the shop don't know a thing (we got to find out little and were sat right next to the finance dept and HR which dealt with transfers and ALL staff issues including the manager). Why would a retail assistant know anything about the club as serious as this.....they don't so please do yourself a favour and stop making rubbish up

al1977 {Ed013's Note - Do you have any contacts there to get cheaper kits and merchandise?! Its costing me a fortune getting my son kitted out in both kits and now he wants his room done!}

Agree0 Disagree0

I was walking down elland road earlier and heard three tramps whispering, so i walked over and said "is that true?" they said "mind your own business ya nosey get!!" HAHA People make me laugh! {Ed013's Note - I saw them as well, they were fighting over half a cheeseburger left from the burger place over the road! I offered them a full one each if they told me their news and they just laughed and went over to the bins where they found 3 chips and a melted ice cream!}

Agree0 Disagree0

The LUFC shop staff get their news and info from SSN or OS. Fact.

They're not in on any gossip, why would they be? They just get asked to sell kit, and that's all they're tasked with.

Agree0 Disagree0

Load of rubbish my GF works at the club shop and they are told nothing, besides the fact a good 80% don't like, follow or support LUFC or football!

I work for a consultancy firm specialising in mergers and acquisitions. When I saw the news on the OS regarding the reduced ticket prices for non-member families, it basically proved to me that any takeover is either dead in the water or never happened.

This sort of decision would never, never be taken mid-acquisition. Its not like its an urgent announcement that had to be made immediately. They had until August to let us know this is happening.

Believe you me, unless I'm very much mistaken, this information has told us what we need to know.

Believable9 Unbelievable8

And you know about as muchs as the rest of us

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree - but..... In all honesty have you ever heard the words REDUCED PRICES and KEN BATES in the same book, let alone statement... If we are to assume that there is a takeover (Which I personally Doubt) then its natural to assume that it is some way down the road... Another assumption could be tabled to question IF the statement has even come from Kenneth himself? Cos it must really stick in his throat to even contemplate reducing any price at ER

Agree0 Disagree0

Come on Leeds ,break the silence it's killing us,forever Mot,

'My sources also saying Neil Warnock will leave #lufc this week. It's all going on...
there's a lot going on upstairs at Elland Road at the moment Bob and that it would be Neil's decision to leave
Does this mean Warnock leaving Clayton staying ?'

Well of course he is, Harry Redknapp just resigned at Spurs to ake over.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Since when has anything on twitter relating to leeds come true?, i read the other day that Freddie Adu had signed for leeds. Its laughable

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeh the guy who tweeted it claimed he represented warnock as well as clayton but when warmockk went to manaco to chat to bates only 3 people was involved in the meeting bates warnock and harveynow ime not doubting you but seing as wornock said his client wasnt good enough maybe he trying to stir the pot hoping if we get taken over a new manager may want to keep clayton and pay the what they worth

Agree0 Disagree0

The guy dont represent either thos he does reprsent some sport starts clayton and vaughn aint among the he tweeted that this morning when cionfronted

Agree0 Disagree0

Interestingly, would Clayton staying be better than Warnock staying? If the takeover goes through and the club is armed with cash, surely new owners would want a longer term peospect than NW?

Agree0 Disagree0

I know its the official site, but there are a couple of articles on there that dont add up.... Firstly Colin is excited about new season in relation to cup draw etc, etc, but more worryingly the other states he is focusing on reshaping squad before start of season, and finishing as high as we can.... What happened to players in by start of PRESEASON, and promotion the only goal ?? Mot Chris, Leeds
