Just seen Sami Ameobi the young lad from Newcastle at Leeds train station looks like he could be heading to Leeds on loan till Jan. Hope so looks really sharp with doped and skill just what we need.

Believable5 Unbelievable42

We have enough strikers,Beccs,Keogh,Ross,Forrsell,Paynter,Somma when he comes back
We need good Defenders not strikers

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree we just need a left back and maybe a centre back instead of kisnorbo because he looks weak at back, hes too slow and he cant really keep up with championship players.

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant see this happening as Newcastle need all the strikers they can get.

Agree0 Disagree0

So without speaking to your imaginary sighting, you suddenly know hes on his way to sign for leeds? and by some miracle, you know how long for... until jan? idiot, its bs like this that makes us look fecking stupid...!

Agree0 Disagree0

Not another striker what a joke sounds like another waffle. Bit like oleary six striker and one right back, plus him and Larry were defenders ha ha

Agree0 Disagree0

Why are all these players coming by train? Don't they drive porsches and the like? given the choice i'd rather drive my 911 than catch the 10:55 from newcastle. Also, all the signings are done at Thorpe Arch so why is he at the station? Its just a drive down the A19 and A1

Man U tickets not selling to well,Is it the price or the fact its on SKY,or do Man Utd not come across as fierce rivals anymore.

Believable8 Unbelievable21

They only just gone on general sale today what you expect

Agree0 Disagree0

Because the time has come where we all hate BATES more than MAN U!

Agree0 Disagree0

Maximum we will get sold is around 25,000,why fill Bates pockets anymore,its on Sky.
We have only spent 200k on a keeper rest freebies or loans
No investment from 'The White Beard'
To fellow Morons stay at home or watch it in the pub,i will be watching it in a bar in Naama Bay

Agree0 Disagree0

Attendances been poor so far, I know quite a few who are boycotting ER until Bates has gone one way or the other.

Agree0 Disagree0

I truly hope there is around 15,000
Boycott it,Bates has bleed enough cash out of our club,Get on ya bike old man

Agree0 Disagree0

I am the fool who thought that they would sell out instatly, so bought mebership 40 bristol ticket 28 then a man u ticket sat on my tod as it was 1 ticket per persone for 32,, now the ldas are all of togher for a sweet 36 in the west stand,,

Agree0 Disagree0

This game will sell out. Plenty of lads who aren't regular will be up for this especially as the unsold tickets are in the SW corner next to scum.

Agree0 Disagree0

I would give anything to be at ER for the Man U game- at the end of the day it is our club- our team - they will need our support- for those that can -go to the game and ensure that all those watching on TV can see why Leeds are a premiership club waiting to happen!

Agree0 Disagree0

Can I just say in the interests of balance. Bates has supported Leeds United more than any of you whingers.

Agree0 Disagree0

Can I just say it's an utter disgrace looking at what people are putting on here! It's embarrassing to see, who do you think you are trying to entice people not to attend!?!? Disgusting! You're lucky We have a team so shut up and keep your worthless money in your pocket because I for one will not miss a person at ER!

Agree0 Disagree0

Could it be the fact that they are T much! I am a sesaon ticket holder and refuse to pay any more money to Mr Bates to pay for new lighting or something else in the boxes.
I am willing, and have paid on season tickets for the last 15 years but think that he is taking the p@@s

Agree0 Disagree0

38 for the upper tier = JOKE
36 for L32 area = JOKE
Carling Cup Prem prices = JOKE

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah dont entice people not to attend thats Ken Bates job.

Agree0 Disagree0

I shall not be going, i refuse to line KB's pockets

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates or no bates ill be going and taking my son!
for those of you who aren't going because of bates LOL Call your self Leeds fans theres no place id rather be ;-)

Agree0 Disagree0

Season ticket holder for 32 years and won't be giving bates any more of my money any one who says Bates saved Leeds and were lucky to be here get a grip some one would always buy Leeds what's going to happen when he snuffs it he is 80 years old for God sake

Agree0 Disagree0

Taking me and my two young sons in family stand - 49. Much as I dislike Bates, and I agree the pricing in other areas of the gound is a joke, I cant miss up the chance of seeing Leeds take on Man U. My two young uns have never seen Leeds in premiership action, so getting the chance to take them to see them on the old enemy is too good a chance to pass up.

Agree0 Disagree0

I support the team f*** bates leeds till i die mot

Agree0 Disagree0

To all the Bates lovers and so called die hards. If the tickets had been reasonably priced then the general public would have had no chance. Season Ticket holders and members would have snapped them all up. Bates knew he would sell out even if the tickets were 50 quid. Me I chose not to go, not out of protest, but down to the price. I pay over 500 quid for a season ticket and to price them as they have done is a slap in the face to all the loyal fans. The club could have given a little back by dropping the price to 20 quid for adults and a tenner for kids. Doing this would have all the fans singing in harmony rather than, (As this thread proves) Leeds Fans turning on each other.

Agree0 Disagree0

If we go out in this round, which let's admit it we probably will, then that's it for the carling cup. No more revenue, to come from future legs, no more money coming into the club from this competition.

If we want to be able to afford better wages, and better players, we need money coming into the club, so to my mind, selling the tickets at these prices, though a bit steep, makes business sense, particularly when it's a midweek game on Sky, so it's more difficult to sell it out.

I dont always agree with Bates' approach, but he's a business man with a vested interest in seeing this club succeed. After all... it's his money in there. Why would he want to run the club into the ground?! If more clubs took his stance, then players would be forced to drop their exorbitant wages in order to play, there would be less clubs getting into financial difficulties, and football would become more about the pitch and less about which far Eastern investor is stalking which club this week.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ive waited 8 years for this, price didnt bother me one bit!

Agree0 Disagree0

To the above poster, are you in the real world ? you think he needs to rip people off for the sake of the club so that he can afford higher wages ? dont talk rubbish man bates wont pay good wages, that why we dont sign anyone, thats why we get crap freebies and loans. we have the 5th highest s.t prices in englang=d. the man is take take take, and for you to come on here and spiout that nonsense means you dont know what you are talikng about

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a massive rumour.. but i'm good mates with a crawley town player and i asked him yesterday if there was any truth in the Matt Tubbs interest that we apparently had in him a while ago, and he said we made an offer of somewhere between 300,000 and 500,000 but Crawley rejected it.

I personally dont believe those numbers, and knowing what Bates is like, it was probably a tenner and a portion of chips but oh well...

Believable12 Unbelievable13

I live in Crawley and know many people connected with the club.
Word is that we enquired about him, in the summer - nothing more.
It is claimed Tubbsy knows he would be a bit part player this season and is keen to make the first step up with Crawley. Massive gulf between levels in Conference and championship.
I'm sure if he does well this season we may enquire about him next summer. I think the Forrsell signing closes the door on this one for the forseeable.

Just read this on the main rumour page, hope this isnt true, nunez is class!


Leeds News - Mccormack is set to sign a new 2 year deal, Whites eying up a move for ex wolves keeper marcus hanneman.

Nunez has rejected a four year deal and there is rumours he is holding out for a move to sunderland next season with reports that they are scouting him!

Believable5 Unbelievable28

Sorry jus found it prob not true but theres also a rumour about james beatie going to bournemouth so the rumours are as realistic as they are on here

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez is not the finished article. He's scored several good goals, but he is no Max Gradel! He would have no chance in the Sunderland side. I for one wouldn't be unhappy if he went AS LONG as we got a suitable replacement.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds offering contracts to people...now you know that's untrue. Also Nunez is not Prem League quality...yet!

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez would be good for a team who are just trying to survive in premiership nothing else

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez is overrated. A nice 500K offer from Sunderland would do nicely in January.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lonergan been pretty impressive why hanheman??

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez is too one footed and over rated. He is no Gradel.

Agree0 Disagree0

When did leeds offer anyone a 4 year contract since we left the prem?
No need for another keeper either

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez is no Max Gradel because Nunez is not a natural wide man. He is better as a Striker or playing just behind the striker as an attacking central midfielder. Give him a chance. He had a poorish game against palace and everyone on his back already.

I would opt for Sam at left wing and try nunez in the middle.

Agree0 Disagree0

Remember though that not only was Nunez poor against Palace but his attitude stank - made even worse by his antics when subbed (after being crap the whole match)

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds are no longer offering 4 year deals so that is wrong for a start. We offer 1 to 2 year deals. 3 at a max I the player is worth it like becchio ect

Agree0 Disagree0
