lufc4life

Believable16 Unbelievable11

Must be a halifax based bookmakers cos ladbrokes coral paddy power tote betfred still taking bets

Agree0 Disagree0

The Goalkeeping merry go round started when Rob Green quit West Ham and is now almost certainly going to QPR. That will release Kenny to join Leeds and Lonergan to move to Bolton to replace Jussi who has already gone to the Hammers as one of Greens replacements. Think they signed another young keeper (Henderson?) too.

Agree0 Disagree0

Paddy Power for sure, these Halifax bookies are a law on to themselves.

Agree0 Disagree0

Typical Halifax a town so far behind times, still hanging out washing across the streets!

I find that this silence about leeds takeover talks is promising. I dont understand why the club have not released a follow up statement as surely they know the suspense will be killing us.

also potential signings, green, kenny, andrews, peilter,the scraps of rangers fc and a whole load of freebies

Believable15 Unbelievable8

Why all the talk about Andrews, is anyone actually watching the Euros. Shocking player. Oh, that's right, he's free.

Been thinking about Colin's comments on the os........its unlike anything he has said previously, I don't think Colin has said a word, it's more bates propaganda. Can't wait for him to dissappear, unlike those who think he's saved the club, I think he is a parasite gettin rich on our goodwill. If he's goin, good riddance

Believable17 Unbelievable12

I cant believe that anybody still thinks you can get rich from a being in charge of a football club, there isnt money in it anymore and you have to be able to take big hits on money to be successful. Whether you like Bates or not and I dont come into either camp he saved our club. People moan about spending 40 of their hard earned money here and there when they supposedly love the club yet they expect a guy who they call a parasite who has no feelings for the club to spend millions on players, where is the logic in that? Bates has more money than you or me and he gets that from being careful but he cant play at the top table anymore in football terms. I believe he has earned the right in any takeover to be there when we get back to the top table and then bow out. I remember the chairman we had previously all the way back to the 70s and the only one that was liked was Risdale , enough said. Becareful what you wish for. And before anyone says im this and that ive had a season ticket for 26 years so have seen the bad times before. MOT

Gaz

Agree0 Disagree0

Gaz- 26 years a fan and wot a load of rubbish!

If you do the calculations over the last few years, Bates has made money from the club mainly from player sales. All true fans wanted was for him to take a risk and reinvest even half of the transfer fees on decent players which undoubtably could have made him much more money from happy fans watching a decent side and promotion to top flight.

Agree0 Disagree0

Back to nw`s comments, I think its strange that he`s saying as far up the table as possible, But the thing that gets me the most is the fact that LUST is just as quiet as bates ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Gaz totally agree, there is virtually nothing to b made in football nowadays and as for the second comment just coz we sellers than we buy doesn't mean bates has put it in his back pocket! And as for taking a risk would u? Would u risk all your money on a 50/50 chance? U even said it yourself "leeds fans want him to take a risk" risdale took s risk and look where that got us!!! I do agree it's time he went but lets b clear we could have done a lot worse than him just look at rangers!

Agree0 Disagree0

When bates sells up he will of made a fortune out of our club. he came in and sold all assets he then started paying the debt off with money from our assets and continued paying in instalments which allowed leeds united to pay ken bates the funds back that he had spent buying the club in the first place meaning bates as now bought a club for 0 .he has a wage aswel coming in . when he does sell up what ever he gets is pure profit ,so to say that you can't make it rich i think i would be rich with 40 mil + off the sale .

Agree0 Disagree0

Gaz you've hit it on the head there as much as people hate bates he saved our club he is careful it's not just the player transfers it's also the wages, I for one wouldn't like end up like portsmouth. There are only a few clubs that make profit every year and I am happy to be one of them, we may not be the best team i the championship but look what happened when we thought we could challenge for prem title 18 mill on ferdinand we had alot of promise and it didnt work out and that was the start of the downward spiralend of the day things will get better for us just have faith!
JK

Agree0 Disagree0

The facts I am afraid are staring us in the face.... With the new fair play rules coming into force.... It doesn't make sense for bates to sell up now... Remember that every club have to abide by the rules, so basically most championship clubs are immediately excluded from spending on the better players. This smacks of salary capping by another method.... I am afraid Bates has just picked his 6 winning ticket numbers, IMO Bates will sell the naming rights ONLY, give Neil the funds ... MAX 6million, we won't see a penny of the profits from previous sales , he will then watch Neil gain us promotion and Bates will then be 70 - 80 million richer.... That's when he sells us, not before.....

Agree0 Disagree0

15 Jun 2012 20:02:08
I think it has all been said. Bates did not want to pay wages during the break. Free agents will sign on 1st July, and same for players that will cost a couple of hundred k. Then and this is hope more than knowledge we will be bought for 45M.

Believable19 Unbelievable5

At last a genuaine rumour and not claimed to have inside nformation well done i agree on the signings milky

Agree0 Disagree0

Not really a rumour though is it? More personal thoughts, don't you think. Is a very level headed thought though, a little more realistic.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

KB isnt daft, why pay a footballer wages, when they dont need to yet. All clubs doing the same thing, expect changes the closer we get to pre-season training.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed013 to sign up as Leeds new goalkeeper and captain. Warnock is impressed with how ed keeps this site together and likes his leadership style. The manager knows that ed tries his hardest to keep the ball (s"""ters) out and makes people show us all who they really are. Ed is currently considering the offer. {Ed013's Note - I am a winger mate, but would play in every position for minimal money for Leeds}

Believable9 Unbelievable7

It's just a real pity, Ed013 puts totally unfounded libelous comments about former England international heroes on this site though. Ed013 prone to scoring own goals. {Ed013's Note - What a true fact about someone that is still living and had a alcohol problem that he openly admitted and spoke about and was a Man Utd player. What is your problem?}

Agree0 Disagree0

He is a Man U fan ed, why post him? We know you meant no harm. Ignore the trouble causer from Stretord! MOT {Ed013's Note - Well She/he is clearly upset and for that I can only apologise as I never intend to upset anyone. If She/he is a Man Utd fan then please stick to your own page}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed013 dont worry bout that poster its time for them to move on ur doing a great job on the site and i agree totally with ur comment bout playing for leeds for small money pity we cant find a few more players that share our love for lufc

jimmy wex {Ed013's Note - Cheers pal, I have been away most of the day so catching up after the birth of my new son! M.O.T}

Agree0 Disagree0

Congrats mate maybe he will be a future leeds striker MOT jimmy wex

Roque Santa Cruz wearing white next season.

Believable9 Unbelievable31

That old chestnut he must have been mentioned as GONNA be signed up for las two seasons. Phil Bramley. By the way love all the optimism of takeover comments but really don't think anyone outside the Leeds boardroom knows what's going on knowing. bates even the directors will be guessing he's milking it for all he van

Agree0 Disagree0

This is your wish list is it?
Obviously not a Leeds fan. :@)
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Why are Citeh selling him to Real Madrid?

Would be nice but won't happen!

KTJ Kent

Agree0 Disagree0

Why is he signing for real Madrid? Don't think they'll take him to be honest

The jyg

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont think he is good enough for real madrid tbh

Keith andrews to sign when he gets back.

Believable11 Unbelievable26

Hope not, he was be far the worst player to appear in the European Championships. Andrews has all the class required for the Scottish 2nd Division.

Agree0 Disagree0

Are you sure we want him after last nights display. we've looked at him before. could not hack it in the premiership - looks like another michael brown to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not good enough imo,I would hope for better, don't think he is any improvement on what we have.

Agree0 Disagree0

Andrews wasn't the only one out of there depth against the WORLD Champs last night, the Championship is NOT that sort of calibre, I do agree think we could get better tho, he was one of Graysons targets NW has never mentioned him...MOT
MJB66.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't you all think it's a little bit harsh to assess his performance and make a decision on his suitability based on a performance against Spain? The Spanish side have made far better players than Andrews look average to poor over the last few seasons.

Agree0 Disagree0

Poor player. Leeds can and must get better quality in and I'm afraid Andrews is not of the quality required.

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought he has got himself into a few good positions and has had more shots on goal than Keane in the 2 games he has played, if his finishing was better he could be a good addition to the squad,he hasn't been any worse than any of the other Irish midfielders.

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont want him or need him...and apparently turned us down a few times last year.
And besides, he's pony.

Agree0 Disagree0

He rejected us once, stuff him, he should never get a second chance of playing in the famous white shirt...

Agree0 Disagree0

So, because you think he had some good games (I don't) you think he'll sign for Leeds because?
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Haven't we had his sort before -Jonathan Douglas springs to mind. And for all the huffing and puffing, those sorts of players always seem to fall short. More one-dimensional than Bradley Johnson. And, as has been said, we already have Brown for the grafting -so what we need is a bit of class in there (to replace what Howson gave us). Darren Ambrose and George Boyd are more the sort we should be aiming for (especially if we get the investment). Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont know what some people are on about. he's class!

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love to see him in a Leeds shirt thought even though Ireland outplayed thought he should more fight than other player that's what we need other people read your question back to yourself and start think postive mot !!!!!!!!!!

This comes from a reliable source but cant say their name or how they know. Rumour is that these talks were on going since december but a number of consortiums didn't want grayson in charge because of the way he spends money they would only invest/takeover if a more high profile name was in charge.

now this is a certain thing.

two players have agreed to join the club, again cant say who, they cant sign and leeds won't announce till july 1st for certain reasons.

allegedly and this is on basis of rumour snodgrass wants to stay but has been offered a chance in premier league but a very surprising team, liverpool.

one last thing due to the nature of this and the way i found out i can only leave my name.

hope you enjoy
Luke

Believable7 Unbelievable32

There you go you start with a reliable source but cant name names then you come out with rumour so basiccaly its a rumour also the 2 players signing on july forst will be freebies warnockk is hardly a high profile manager is he and if there was a takeover it dont matter who is in charge if the team because they can appoint there own manager milky

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok Luke, you know your just going to get laughed at don't you?

Agree0 Disagree0

Hmmm, Why would someone no want to takeover a club because of the manager? They would sack him and get someone else in, that's why i dont belive you.

Agree0 Disagree0

This person i know but cant say thinks you are something, which again he cant say. this person lives somewhere i cant say and is a certain age, again which i cant say.

Agree0 Disagree0

If you are sure about this give us the names of the players and a reasanble reason why they have defo signed?

LUFC Fans need good news!

Agree0 Disagree0

Luke is your second name skywalker and is your dad called darth by any chance, what utter dribble you come out with

Agree0 Disagree0

Such utter BULLs**t!!!! i'm not suprised you only left your first name, ....Dave

Agree0 Disagree0

Brendon rogers will not buy Snodgrass, he will use his budget at pool to buy top 4 chasing players. Plus this level of interest would be big news. FAIL.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok this post is either very funny or very stupid. having faith in fellow leeds fans i am sure it is the first. very funny post that states nothing other than players will be coming and going and can not so who where or when, i love the sign off...for reasons i can not leave my name...luke. very funny...i hope if not rather silly and pointless do you fall over quite often? this might help me know what the answer is

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets be fair, Grayson didnt have that much money to spend did he!

WibseyWhite

Agree0 Disagree0

If this is a laughable rumour then fine i am keep something confidental because i have to.
if you laugh fine its a crediable source and seems you lot what names fine. lenighan

Agree0 Disagree0

I didnt spend that much money :'(

Stop upsetting me

Agree0 Disagree0

The way Grayson spent money? He never had any money! he was made to sell all the time!
Delph, Johnson, Kilkenny, Gradel, Kasper...

There is a takover in place but only 60 or 70 percent done at the moment due to ken bates not playing ball as to be expected. Neil warnock will have substantial funds to spend but we are not been taken over by mega rich americans or kuwaitis !

Believable8 Unbelievable16

Ok please name who is then or is this just another rumour

Agree0 Disagree0

No names no as it could scupper the deal From a former director who i work for !

Agree0 Disagree0

If it was 60-70% we would have a new owner bates owns 80% of the club do the maths

Agree0 Disagree0

I am struggling to understand the last comment, the person posting the rumour said the deal is 60-70% done not that they have bought 60-70%.

Agree0 Disagree0

Deal was 60 to 70 percent complete as of last night !

Agree0 Disagree0

What's the timescale from here on in? Chapel A

Heard a rumour that we are in for freddy adu if this is true wonder if we are getting took over by americans and buying a few usa internationals aswell would make sense just a thought Tommo.lufc.84

Believable9 Unbelievable13

I hope not he is not that good of a player. Rogers is twice the player, far better players out there on frees that are playing at this level

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a bad shout with Robbie Rodgers training with LA Galaxy at present??

Agree0 Disagree0

If people are serious about LA galaxy can you imagine what David Beckham as said about us Leeds united. He hates us and were loving it lol

Agree0 Disagree0

To the comment above. If David Beckham hates us, so must kasper and alex, Both their dads man u legends. They must of bin forced to sign or had brain surgery by aliens to want to sign. Lol im sure the galaxy are sat round a table arguing over Leeds Robbie Keane pointing out the pros and Beckham the cons. Ha get a grip. BrayzerWhite
