Heard a rumour that Jordan Rhodes has said if Town don't get promoted the club he'd favour to be at next season would be Leeds United....rumours from several Huddsfield Town fans is that he's already agreed to join Leeds United next season don't believe this though! {Ed013's Note - Leeds do not have the funds however I would like to be proven wrong}

Believable14 Unbelievable25

If we sold McCormack to bring in Rhodes i'd be happy.

Agree0 Disagree0

Have to agree about mcCormack -dispensible if we can get a real striker

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds do have the funds, but ken bates WONT spend the funds.

Agree0 Disagree0

We not have the funds but we have many old players grayson would love to take to huddersfield

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldn't think of selling mccormack and bringing in Rhodes unless mccormack says he will not sign a new deal as we would be no better off infact we would probably be worse off as we will maybe get 3 mil for mccormack and Rhodes will cost 4 mil + and hes not a proven goal scorer at championship level and mccormack is. if Rhodes is to come in it would have to be in a part x with clayton and maybe paynter

apparently after seeing matty burrows goal of the season last year, NW said he must have him. a good player in my opinion, would love it if he could pull of one of these for us next season:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzAZTdyOXcA {Ed013's Note - Where did he say that}

Believable6 Unbelievable13

That is the biggest pile of rubbish ive ever heard in my life. I'm from Northern Ireland and see this guy play in the Irish League. He was released by Glentoran, a team that finished 6th in the Irish League this year. That goal come out of no were. He has never even been close to the Irish League's top goal scorers. The Irish League is the equivalent to League 2 (at best). I highly doubt Neil Warnock even knows who this player even is

Agree0 Disagree0

And you would love it if he could pull 'ONE' of these off for leeds next season?......why? wot one goal gonna achieve?? u dont get nothing for goal of season as a team so this has to be the most pointless post of the summer so far congratulations!

Leeds set to make shock bid for Kevin Davis and Chris eagles from Bolton to allow bechio and clayton to move out.
Source : live next door to Davis agent.
Don't know if it's true or just a way to try get him best offers from other clubs ...... {Ed013's Note - What is his agents name? Why would Becchio leave when he is a key member of the team and NW will improve him as a player next season. If you are making this up ask yourself WHY? Also leave your name to the post and if you are right people will believe you}

Believable6 Unbelievable26

Doubt this is true, would be a good but wages would be an issue never mind the cos must me at least 1-2mill each

Agree0 Disagree0

Apart from everything else kevin davis has already come out and said he is planning to stay at bolton. Do a bit of research first if your goin to make up a rumour please!

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol another plank, eagles is a prem player and way too good for championship and too expensive welcome to the real world

Agree0 Disagree0

As it stands, Eagles will be playing the the championship anyway next season.

Smith dropped to the bench tonight for MK Dons. That's how good he was on Saturday!!

Believable21 Unbelievable14

He's in the starting line up person Leeds scouts are at tonight's game too

LJHS {Ed013's Note - He is on the bench}

Agree0 Disagree0

Yep Leeds Scouts - Armley 4th troop, dib dib dib....

Agree0 Disagree0

Smith has scores tonight! Get him signed up, goal scoring midfielder is just what we need LOL

Agree0 Disagree0

His goal tonight will no doubt make him the new saviour of Leeds United!

Agree0 Disagree0

On a side note nice to see the Huddersfield lot havent forgotten his connections - how ironic that some "fans" punched him on the way off the pitch but hailed Simon Grayson. There's some small minded people floating around at sewer level...

Agree0 Disagree0

He was their best player on Saturday by far, and he is far too good for league one and could still probably get in some of the lower premier league teams. LS

Agree0 Disagree0

I am not a Smith fan at all but I have to say the Huddersfield fans were a disgrace tonight at the end. Never any need for physical attacks. Have to agree with the previous post about the ironies tonight - they all "hate Leeds scum" but their manager still has Marching on Together as his ring tone, apparently! {Ed001's Note - just to point out, Smith was on the bench due to picking up a knock and wasn't fit to start.}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2012 19:31:00
leeds to complete the signings of greg halford, paul green, david norris and joel ward in the next fortnight. then i hope to see two or three top quality signings to give a real sense of ambition. along with a few more good solid championship players like the one we're already linked with to go with the quality

klasnic linked with leeds united, source, leeds facebok page. If this happens would be brilliant! possible wage issue

Believable13 Unbelievable22

Not sure, for what wages he would want I feel we could get a more hungry youngster, he's 32 not ancient but I would rather somebody early 20's with a promising courier infront of them. 20 goals in 77 apps for Bolton over all, not sure on assists But could we do better?

Agree0 Disagree0

Not surprising he only scored 20 goals with a courier in front of him!

Agree0 Disagree0

These rumours are pathetic now, I'm sure people are just bored and making things up now {Ed013's Note - It is a rumour and it also happens to have been in a newspaper. That is why its called a rumours site}

Agree0 Disagree0

Often a sub at Bolton but always looks a danger when I have seen him... we could do a whole lot worse and have in the past

Agree0 Disagree0

Similar style to Beckford, can drift in and out of games but can produce magic when he hits a ball, lacks pace but you cant deny his goal scoring ability.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2012 17:47:18
heard a rumour leeds are in for squallici from arsenal hopefully it not true he is terrible
lufc jimbob

Believable7 Unbelievable27

It's obviously not true, but I don't know how you can call him terrible, he's a French international with bags if experience, he'd be class in this league. LS

U obviously dont watch any arsenal games mate

leeds complete the deals for ward and halford to day at 5pm to day source news

Believable18 Unbelievable16

It's now 5.30pm and no news yet - I think your tea might be ready now son- turn of the computer there's a good lad

Agree0 Disagree0

Funny that, all i see on skysports is Warnock claiming not to have any problems with the tight budget he's been given.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well it's 6pm now and there's no news anywhere. Where did you hear this?

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed please ban these wasters posting lies. If its not on the is is ant true fact! {Ed013's Note - Sometimes I don't know what is truthful or not, I had to give the poster a chance to be right and if not he would get lots of abuse instead!}

Agree0 Disagree0

Another person with too much time on their hands, it's amazing how strange some people are when they're behind their computer screen

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol to the first comment!.......hit the nail on the head............I find that most of the "absolutley nonsense rumors" appear after school as finished! M.O.T. WhiteE.

Agree0 Disagree0

I feel that the poster of these comments should be asked to justify where his or her news came from. Although is probably tucked up in bed by now...

Agree0 Disagree0

Its 8.25 still no news lol..i heard the deals might be anounced on friday but il believe it when i see it :) mot {Ed013's Note - Sorry I forgot to mention it was a Stretford Utd fan that was trying to cause trouble on the first post so blocked him}

David Ngog looking for more first team opportunities by making a 1million move to the peacocks. LOVE IT!

Believable6 Unbelievable25

Think this could be a good move reckon he would be good in this leauge and add pace to the front

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't, not what we need at all. waste of money, better off in the belgian leagues or something

Agree0 Disagree0

Any striker but n'gog he's horrendous and that's putting it nicely

Agree0 Disagree0

Striker and Ngog, two words that should never be used in the same sentence !

PeteMOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Why, when we could get Beckford, the real deal?

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock wouldnt touch him with a barge-pole! He wants class not that donkey {Ed001's Note -

Agree0 Disagree0

Surely this is a joke, he's a joke, not a funny joke, but a joke all the same

Agree0 Disagree0

Under 18 captain Simon Lenighan has signed first professional contract. (sky sports news) bright future for this kid.

Believable31 Unbelievable2

15 May 2012 16:16:21
Warnock has stated that he will be very dissappointed if he hasn't signed two or three players this week, as he goes on holiday on the 25th.
he also states that two or three of his targets hav'nt been mentioned in all the speculation to date, as he want's to keep them under wraps !, If he gets the backing of Bates then all looks to be going well for next year, MOT

Believable18 Unbelievable3

Just read this as well in the YEP does this then mean we can exclude Norris , varney, duiof even green and halford? Hopefully they will be good additions

Agree0 Disagree0

Where exactly has warnock stated this?

19french19

Agree0 Disagree0

A quote on the back page of the Yorkshire evening post "theres loads of speculation, but fortunately two or three of my targets haven't been mentioned yet"

These are the signings i would expect to see by the end of the transfer window at least:
Joel Ward
Greg Halford
Luke Varney
Paul Green
Paddy Kenny (maybe)
Paul Green
David Norris (maybe)

Believable9 Unbelievable13

Could get confusing if we sign two Paul Green's lol

JordLUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope not luke varney, he is a waste of space better off keeping paynter

Agree0 Disagree0

George Boyd and Beckford instead of Varney and Norris for starters

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2012 15:24:44
my dad said that on saturday he heard on radio that leeds were after beckford and jay bothroyd. dont know how much or if its true. mabye someone on here knows more?

Joel Ward to be announced in the next 48 hours maximum with Greg Halford following in his former Pompey team mates footsteps before the week is out! 3 Portsmouth defenders? Don't know what to think as of yet! MOT

Honestly I have no source but it's been circulated over and over in the past few days. Twitter, rumour sites etc! RyanMOT

Believable10 Unbelievable3

Well that Porstmouth defence conceded the same as playoff finalists Blackpool so its going to be an improvement on what we've got currently.

Agree0 Disagree0

Portsomouths team wasn't that bad until they got put into administration. Halford is decent with a great long throw and Pearce is quality and a leader. Not seen much of ward but from portsmouth fans its all positive news. So dont worry too much, remember Connoly, O Dea, O Brien, Bruce, Bromby can only get better lol

TeejLUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Portsmouth had the third best defensive record in the league last season (I'm not positive though) so I'd gladly take their defenders, especially Pearce, Ward and Halford! With an attack like ours (as long as get some quality in the midfield) we could do some serious damage next season.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think this could be a very good, halford pearce ward lees Thompson White, mostly young but all capable of making that step up to become a top defence

Agree0 Disagree0

Well not the 3rd best, but better then ours, by 10 goals!

Agree0 Disagree0

Portsmouth conceded 59 goals last season, placing them 15th 'best' in defensive record.

Leeds conceded 68, 9 goals worse and 4 places lower.

Time will tell, last seasons figures only tell half the story, who knows how these players will do at Leeds, hopefully we'll have a better time.

LUFC-BOB

Agree0 Disagree0

Brilliant if true -both excellent players at this level, and both versatile, with the ability to play across the back four. Halford has height and a great long throw -like a higher class Bromby, and Ward is an all-round good footballer. And it can only be a plus that these lads are used to playing together.

Agree0 Disagree0

Pretty much anything is like a higher class Bromby.

Leeds to sign Clinton Morrison on a free after being released from the Owls

Believable5 Unbelievable35

Yeah that's right. Shef. Wed reject.. Nice made up rumour

Agree0 Disagree0

Not good enough for SWFC in league 1 and spent the end of last season on loan at Brentford playing 8 games and scoring no goals.

Should be just about perfect for Leeds then. NOT!

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2012 12:46:17
Paul green 2 be announced this weekend with paddy kenny coming later next week , great signings in same mould as Pearce {Ed013's Note - In the same mould, I thought Kenny was a keeper and Green a midfielder}

Believable12 Unbelievable14

Ed thats awesome, let's hope not in same mould as person who posted this #talksouthisass

Agree0 Disagree0

I personally would love the thought of Kenny between our sticks this coming season! However as CB? Not sure

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm sure that he knows that Kenny is a keeper. Perhaps by "same mould" he meant "similar quality"

Agree0 Disagree0

He quite clearly means same mould as in similar quality, the kind of players we should be looking at :)

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought when he said the same mould he meant a plasticine mould...so they will all have a head, shoulders, two arms, a body and two legs. Yep...all in the same mould if thats the case.....or maybe just the same tough mentaility. Hmmm not sure which one!

Agree0 Disagree0

Aquiliani set to return to English football with a link-up with his boyhood friend Beccio... Snodgrass to Liverpool as part of the deal.

Believable12 Unbelievable43

This is the most reliable thing iv ever heard, oh wait its rubbush

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio - Argentine,
Aquilani - Italian.

worst rumour i've ever seen. {Ed013's Note - People must sit and think of the most unbelievable things to post to get a reaction}

Agree0 Disagree0

So does this mean, the rumour I heard about the swap deal, Paynter for Gerrard is rubbish as well. Mr Bates would have convulsions (and then some) if he saw Aquiliani's pay packet, c'mon get real.

Agree0 Disagree0

Boyhood Friend? You mean boyhood pen pals? Given that Becchio lived in Buenos Aires until he was 20 and Aqualani was born and brought up in Rome! Absolute Bull Mate!!

Agree0 Disagree0

I can't stop laughing at this one! Absolute rubbish! And I'd rather have Snoddy than Aquaman anyday! - James C24

Agree0 Disagree0

Never heard such a load of rubbish in my life

Agree0 Disagree0

You obviously didn't read that ED said that he didn't want crap on this site. Oh and that he also wanted identification of the sender to prevent the total bull that people like you are sending. JD {Ed013's Note - Cheers JD}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2012 10:54:14
Just seen Doyle(wolves player) looking round elland road with Sean Harvey. Wowowow {Ed013's Note - Take a picture then and post it}

Believable3 Unbelievable29

Would he not 5mil plus remember arsenal were interested at 8 mil

Agree0 Disagree0

Doyle would command a large fee in the region of 5million+, so I highly doubt this rumour. Nice try though!

Agree0 Disagree0

How did you see him walking round Elland Road, was he nipping to the chippy or subway?

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2012 10:48:36
Joel ward expected to sign tomorrow along with halford deals have been agreed medicals need to take place and then they can finalise the deal, also green expected to sign by beginning of next week. Rumours linking Ben Wilson young keeper from sunderland on loan are rubbish

Believable17 Unbelievable11

15 May 2012 10:38:22
halford and ward to sign by the end off the week for a fee off 800k two reasonably good signings, but bates has to get his finger out. simon MOT

Believable13 Unbelievable4

Why does he need to get his finger out? I Warnock gets the people he wants in this week, and he's got Pearce who he wanted too, what exactly is Bates doing wrong/not doing?

A lot of people seem to be finding things in nothing at the moment. Complain when there's a need to, not in anticipation of things to disagree with!

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2012 10:31:02
Joey Barton to come to Elland Road next season,as QPR will kick him out

Believable11 Unbelievable33

Don't want him. I'll take Diouf anyday, not that dirty horrible Geordie reject Barton. "Doooo probation know you're here?" MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Better bloody not do hes inconsistent when hes on the pitch amd spents the most of his time of it

Agree0 Disagree0

If the rumours was true, with Diouf and Barton it would be one hell of a Christmas Punch up at Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why go for someone who won't play at least the first ten games. Scum of the earth

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish!! didn't warnock and barton have a fall out over tweeter?? {Ed013's Note - Yes}

Agree0 Disagree0

Wouldactually like barton at leeds fair enough the blokes crackers but i think he'd be good for us an we would be good for him. mot

Agree0 Disagree0

And are we gonna pay 10 weeks wages whilst he's banned?! I very much doubt it.

Agree0 Disagree0

If we have to have one complete swear word i would rather have barton over that clown diouf. Hes ten times a better player, just what leeds need to be honest, remember vinnie and batty!? {Ed013's Note - Batty wasn't a dirty player}

Agree0 Disagree0

With are record of sending off's barton aint a player we need at the mo.

Agree0 Disagree0

We would be alright signing Barton and Duoif then we'd be playing with 9 men at times instead of 10 like we've done to often last season,,,,,,,,,,kj

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock doesn't like him numpty, he slagged him of when he got sacked for constantly tweeting and basically acused him of stabbing him in the back

Agree0 Disagree0

If he comes to leeds ..urghhhhhhhh i dont no what i will do !!!! i hate him!!

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Barton would be great for leeds, although hes said he still has plenty to offer to the prem so.............
Mac

Agree0 Disagree0

Defence of Thompson Pearce, Woodgate and Robinson. Midfield of Barton, Bowyer, Brown and Diouf. Kevin Davies in attack with Snoddy. Fireworks or what? No-one would look forward to playing us! Looks kind of attractive to me and not unrealistic! {Ed037's Note - Lacks pace though, which is what Warnock said he wanted}

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2012 10:21:38
Looking likely that NW will try and wrap a double deal for Ward and Halford this week. Probably going to cost around £800K for the pair which will mean KB will have to smash his piggybank or we have got a player leaving that will cover the fee and wages - Aidan White?? Phatphil

Believable11 Unbelievable5

15 May 2012 07:17:55
Ive heard that Liverpool have been looking at Snodgrass
with Dalglish having a soft spot for scottish players and also Liverpool need a good winger for Andy Carroll

Believable8 Unbelievable28

He better trade sone youngsters for himthen! Liverpool aren't going to sign Snoddy.

Agree0 Disagree0

Actually hope so, Liverpool like paying More money for players than they are worth, think warnock should go for it if this is true and squeeze every penny they can get, snoddy could be there new bench warmer but saying that I think he would a better job than Stuart downing who got less premiership goals and assists than tim Howard, ha ha

Agree0 Disagree0

Dalglish may not be Liverpool manager after his meeting in the US with the owner.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think any of his transfer demands will be persued ujntil after showdown talks with the owners.

Nickoslick

Agree0 Disagree0

With that logic every club with a scottish player had better brace themselves for a bid from liverpool.

I would suggest this is complete tripe!

Agree0 Disagree0

Contradictory post saying they want snodgrass and then saying they need a good winger!

Agree0 Disagree0

Even if Liverpool had Jairzinho on one wing and Ronaldo on the other they'd struggle to make Carroll look good!! Cuff. MOT.

Agree0 Disagree0

15 May 2012 00:25:21
Would really like to see an end to the rumours concerning former players like smith and bowyer, they're not good enough, people need to stop living in the past.

DEEZ. {Ed007's Note - Anything about them should be getting deleted anyway. It's boring.}

Believable23 Unbelievable7

Hope they get deleted instead of posted tonight when he maybe playing again against Huddersfield, it gets embarrassing

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd love to see someone put there name to one of those posts lol

Nickoslick {Ed013's Note - Lets see what happens tonight!}

Agree0 Disagree0

If you are fed up of seeing those names on here, why did YOU post them here?
