Can anyone tell me the best way to get from Leeds Station to the ground tomorrow night and the best way back please? A serious answer would be appreciated, of course

I am travelling from Hellaby so if anyone else is travelling that way I'd willingly pay towards a lift?

Come out of the main doors of the train station, cross the taxi rank and go down the stairs and under the arches are return buses to the ground, about 3.

Agree0 Disagree0

Catch the special busses form under the Arches near the Station to and from the ground - easiest and quickest way

Agree0 Disagree0

The football special buses from under the bridge. They are a little further down on a side street on the left hand side

Agree0 Disagree0

There is a bus service by the dark arches (under train station) which is 2.50 return. Gets in and out very quickly

Agree0 Disagree0

Come out of the station, down the steps and turn right at the main road going under the tunnel to the bus stops at the other side. Catch the number 1 bus to Beeston and get off at the co-op near the white hart and walk down the hill to Elland road.

Simples

Good look, MOT

Nick R

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi come out of the station so you are stood outside wetherspoons...

look towards the mini roundabout and follow that road over the canal and to a main roundabout over to next roundabout
turn left to next roundabout

turn left if you keep going up that road you will see burger vans and everyone else you are just about there M.O.t

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't worry mate once you come down the stairs loiter about and within a couple of mins you're bound to see someone in a Whites shirt or scarf. They'll be happy to sort you out.
Enjoy the game - hopefully it'll be the right result.

Get the leeds special bus 2.,50 there and back - y cant beat it

Agree0 Disagree0

Save your money - and go watch a decent team for a change

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks to everyone, looks like the bus will be the choice then.

To the clown that wrote the last comment, your team is obviously so 'decent' you have to come on here for company......

...is the local infants school still shut for the summer? {Ed007's Note - That shouldn't even have been posted, sorry mate. Thanks to everyone who helped out, hope you have a great day and get a win mate. I have an ST for Celtic Park which is quite local to me, but I go down to OT when I can (no abuse needed lads), the travelling down to Manchester etc makes it an even better day out.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Found the bus, got to the ground and watched a superb game, many thanks to all of you for your help, and for the 'real' people en route who made the night special....

Leeds4alongtime

Agree0 Disagree0

For ED - Tonight has been a special night. Last time I watched Leeds play Hull Vinny Jones scored a blinder from 30 yards out, and we went on to win 4-3 with Strachan scoring a great goal, that was one of my best memories of Elland Road, tonight will live on too.

Highlight was the Kop singing 'We scored your goal for you" just classic.

Leeds4alongtime {Ed025's Note - i just hope that now...you cut larry some slack!

seyi olofinjana loan from Hull city :)

Believable5 Unbelievable9

I have clicked unbelievable but I wish it was true.. He is the kind of player we need

Agree0 Disagree0

He hasnt been in the hull sqaud so.. . . ? only hope MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

U little mixer, just before the Tigers game. Good player though, probably too good considering what we're getting in at the mo.

Agree0 Disagree0

Was linked earlier this summer but i'm sure Hull hoped to sell him. Could see this happening.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2011 16:24:31
Andy Keogh good player as a wide man not a striker though won't be prolific in front of goal. I played with him with St Josephs Boys in Dublin growing up and he always played better on the wing. Don't see the point of him signing as a striker he would bring far more to the table as a winger so i'm not sure what SG is planning since he said we don't need to strengthen on the wings. What do you reckon?

Believable3 Unbelievable10

Please stop putting a bad side to everything SG does, starting to get annoying, have faith in the man.

Liaaam

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe to replace gradel for this match as he got a red against boro and maybe he is gonna play max upfront and him at wing, never know.

Agree0 Disagree0

The guy has been brought in to hold the ball upfront to get us playing further up the pitch.. it seems to be the only the boss can set his team out.. whites4ever

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe he will be used as a target man for mcCormack to feed off???

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree with the original post keogh has never been Prolific infront of goal after leaving Scunthorpe and playes on the wing for ireland and i think Giovanni Trapatoni is a better judge of player than SG and k
no one is keen to point out that we are resigning a player not good enough a few years ago.But i do think SG is the right man for the job but he needs to stand up to bates and demand funds

Agree0 Disagree0

Signed as a Target man to create chances for others. Simple as that

Agree0 Disagree0

German striker having medical at Thorpe arch in morning 2year deal free transfer

Believable9 Unbelievable9

You mean the trialist LUZ ? good player if fit

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets hope it's the guy who's been score for fun in the reserves...

Agree0 Disagree0

You're obviously implying that it's Felix Luz although I doubt there's any credence to the story.
What's the source or have you had too much sauce.
He would probably be a good signing (especially on a free) the only down side is, he complains more than Wenger,a teenager & Joey Barton on Twitter all into one.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope it is Luz. He can hold the ball up and he has good movement and scores goals.. I went to Farsley game and I thought he was very good.
Can he do it in championship though ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Well i see we all thinking the same way LUZ, Well why not we av missed out on every one else n he got a half descent track record plus we get shut of Billy no goals then....M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

Sounds a decent player but has been dogged by injury his entire career, is he a target man?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2011 15:55:27
Rumour confirmed: OS-

Mikael Forsell training with us... i wonder if there is any possibility of him actually signing now we have Keogh on loan? I hope so. A quality player. I would rather hav a fit Forsell than Keogh. That's the big question with him though..... he has been decimated by injuries and had a dodgy knee. Can he play enough?

Believable5 Unbelievable1

I think he's a good acquisition for the club even if he is half fit or injury prone, still better than a fully fit donkey aka paynter

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2011 15:51:12
Forssell and Keogh upfront for Ipswich game

Believable6 Unbelievable7

No chance
It'll be weeks before Leeds commit. They'll want a proper look at his fitness first. Why else would you wait & trial a good international player & rightly so.
If he's still got the fitness mind you he'd be a great signing, might not be top scorer in the League but he'll give you everything & not particularly money motivated either.

Agree0 Disagree0

You turkey

Forssell on trial, cant sign him that quick as he would still need international clearence would take at least 24 hrs to complete any deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Aug 2011 15:38:19
couple months late with the transfer stories i think, we knew becchio n somma would be unavailable so why act so late?

Believable7 Unbelievable1

Wish you'd stop bloody whinging, there's plenty of time. Calm down.

Agree0 Disagree0

Becasue they have tried every other avaliable striker in wrold football but no one will come due to the wages we offer and SG is hardly inspirational.

Agree0 Disagree0

If you're that unhappy and negative go away and support MU or Liverpool, anyone but LU. Moan, moan, whinge, whinge.

Agree0 Disagree0

Believable7 Unbelievable1

He should be a brillaint signing tbh i was shocked when i saw this on website. maybe bate listen to protests and chant at elland road on saturday?

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't reckon because he's still here ha
Need a centre back now batesy And a centre mid Then you'l miss out on a stoning Just get a few slaps and some abuse instead

In Simon we trust
Mot

Agree0 Disagree0

To the person above... he is available on a free and has had injury problems. TYPICAL bates move.... mot

Agree0 Disagree0

Excellent that he is training and on trial...here's hoping he will get snapped up and we sell barn door

Agree0 Disagree0

If he could stay fit he would be a good signing adding pace up front , lets hope he is over the injuries

Agree0 Disagree0

Very good lets hope he's fit and in form.. sy

Agree0 Disagree0

Andy keogh was not good enough 6 years ago so what as changed and michael forrsell injury prone what a waste of time and money get rid of simon grayson now before he get,s us relegated

Agree0 Disagree0

Would have preferred a punt on Le Fondre any day of the week than Keogh on a free (no offence Andy but you're hardly prolific).
Forrsel would be a great signing even if we only get half a season out of him but we haven't signed him yet & I won't be doing cartwheels until we do.
Oh and I'm not been pessimistic just realistic.
It's a step in the right direction & today have definitely lifted some of the doom & gloom we've had to encounter for a while.

Agree0 Disagree0

I would have taken a punt on Le Fondre. Still we need four new defenders now and a quality midfield player. Splash the cash on Bullard should do the trick i we can keep him fit. Come on Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks for the copy & paste of the website Much appreciated

Agree0 Disagree0

4 defenders? What planet are you on? Lees & Kisnorbo are good enough, O'Dea if played at centre back may also be good enough, and Bromby is acceptable.

Andy Keogh signs on loan till January.

Source: Official Site.

Confirmed by the club, great signing.

Believable6 Unbelievable5

Actually happy with this one, he will add something extra we are clearly lacking up front, pace and a player who can hold onto the ball, he also has a good head on him and can pass very well.

Agree0 Disagree0

Good signing just need 2 midfeilder a cb and we may stand a chance of staying up get some money spent bates or leave our club ps spend on players NOT stands

Agree0 Disagree0

Fantastic signing goal every 5 or 6 games so absolutely top notch. put your brain back in

Agree0 Disagree0

Great Signing
Decent signing you mean, oh, I get it your his agent aren't you???
C'mon fess up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Same as the last guy said. Bloody fantastic move that one. They should call us cast off's united.

Agree0 Disagree0

He might get five or six goals in a season. Just what we need if we want to go down

Agree0 Disagree0

Good signing? He's played 245 games and scored and scored 45 times, that's crap

Agree0 Disagree0

It's official on a few Footie sites now. Keogh is the new signing and is traveling up to Leeds today to sign on a loan deal until january with the option of a permanent deal if all goes well at the club where it all started for him.
