Further hints from Stockdale over Twitter
"Sorry for the lack of tweets not had the best of days Future close to being sorted want to play games now Wherever Fulham send me"

and

retweeted this
"stockogk1313 can I get a retweet from the future Leeds no1"

Believable11 Unbelievable2

Wonder if Stockdale will sign though.. If he does he'll have to stop using Twitter.

Agree0 Disagree0

I really can't see him coming to Leeds. We need a permanent number 1. The 24 hour return clause could potentially leave us in the s41t good style.

Agree0 Disagree0

But Rachubka is not exactly a terrible keeper as you would have seen a pre season games

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2011 23:19:03
My friend is the cousin of stockdale, and he will sign for leeds on monday

Does anyone think there's any truth in Leeds speaking to Anton Ferdinand ? Ed, , {Ed045's Note - Haven't heard anything myself.

Believable5 Unbelievable18

He's terrible, just cos he's rios brother doesn't mean anything

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah they might be asking him if he knows any good players {Ed032's Note - he wont say his brother he's shite

Agree0 Disagree0

We don't need defenders.. Although SG is lining him up to replace Paynter.. (he would do a better job)

Agree0 Disagree0

Anton is realy good player just think he needs the chance at a decent club who will play him every week. And to be honest I think championship would bring the best out of him he better than all our back 4. Plus he can play center or right back. Just Coz he ain't as good as rio don't make him rubbish.

Agree0 Disagree0

No chance, i started this rumour last season for a laugh and you gullible people actually believed it - fools.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed what's the deal with emerenko, is he on trial in Scotland or any chance of signing, from what I've heard the guy has quality. He'd be good for Leeds. MOT, (Feelin positive after Motherwell result) {Ed045's Note - I heard he was on trial with us yes, but not sure what SG has planned for him, perhaps Rochdale?

Believable14 Unbelievable5

Ed... Eremenko was supposed to fly into scotland yesterday but his flight got cancelled. He is keen to join leeds and there is genuine interest ut no trial as yet. Expect him to sign or discuss a deal on tuesday. MOT. jamie lufc {Ed045's Note - Ahh of course, I remember hearing that, I just didn't register the his name with the situation haha.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed where do you get your knowledge of transfers from? As this guy hasn't been mentioned in the media by anyone connected with the club as in Thom kirwin or Paul dews and they have mentioned other targets such as stockdale etc {Ed045's Note - It's the same infomation you guys get, I suppose it's word of mouth, but it's different from when a Lionel Messi is ''seen somewhere'' then linked, to a relatively unknown player from Finland. I think this is a believer, also other Ed's are mentioning the authenticity of this.

Agree0 Disagree0

Someone pulled a quote from a Finnish newspaper quoting that he was due to arrive in the UK to talk to Leeds {Ed007's Note - It was myself that confirmed the reports up here in Scotland that Eremenko was due to play for Leeds as a trialist today, his flight was cancelled and he didn't arrive in time and also Cardiff City are now interested in him. Teams were being quoted 1 million for him but now the price is 300k supposedly}

Agree0 Disagree0

just been to the leeds v motherwell game and can conferm 100% simon grayson has agreed to let billy paynter go, maybe to sheffield utd, paynter missed a host of chances and from my seat i could see it was clear grayson wasnt happy with his strikers efforts.. on the hour paynter was replaced by nunez who again played himself into simons plans for the game against rochdale, but paynter and simon had a few words after the final whistle and grayson was heard saying "unlucky billy, its just not worked out for you here" i assume this means paynter is on his way out of elland road and a replacement is on his way... belive me paynter cut a inconsolable figure after speaking with simon grayson.

Believable19 Unbelievable42

You should work for a newspaper mate great imagination, you might want to work on your spelling though

Agree0 Disagree0

Utter rubbish, as if Grayson is going to tell a striker in the second game of pre-season that it's not worked out, especially after going on record to say he wasn't selling him and in light of Somma's 6-month lay off. Think these things through before you make them up, donut

Agree0 Disagree0

This "rumour" is unfair on Billy. did he not have a goal disallowed? since Somma is out, how about us fans give him a chance, at least until Christmas? {Ed032's Note - i agree lets get behind the team. i think mccormack will bang a few in this season

Agree0 Disagree0

To be honest I think this is your personal opinion and own interpretation that you have dreamed up. Paynter had a goal disallowed and was on site plenty of times to warrant a pat on the back. As long as he is in the mix and creating chances then that's all good. Isn't that what Pre- season is all about........? Stop moaning and give him s break

Leeds aren't we {Ed045's Note - Very true.. Paynter is a quality target man, and now we have more Striker shortages, why shorten it further. Lets get behind the ENTIRE team.

Agree0 Disagree0

Give paynter a chance. We all no what hes capable of. So lets get behind him. He had a terrible start to last season cos of injury. A fit paynter will prove to be a good assett MOT {Ed032's Note - i agree

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree with last reply...stop posting your fantasy and get behind the team...your post makes all us leeds fans look like muppets

Agree0 Disagree0

What planet are you on? I also suppose you saw messi in morrisons in wetherby talking to ken bates over a move?

Agree0 Disagree0

Complete total utter rubbish what planet are some of you ppl on, how do ye manage to come up wi crap like that, give billy a chance he will shine...M.O.T {Ed032's Note - i agree

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson has already said several times paynter is not for sale. Give him a chance billy will come good he destroyed us both games when he played for swindon {Ed032's Note - exactly my man

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson has already said several times paynter is not for sale. Give him a chance billy will come good he destroyed us both games when he played for swindon {Ed032's Note - exactly my man

League 1 striker that has not made the step up, simple as that..

Agree0 Disagree0

Give Paynter a give? He had loads of chances at the back end of last season. Leeds were effectively playing with 10 men with him on the pitch. Bleedin' useless.

Agree0 Disagree0

You are obviously all watching a completely different Paynter to me, the guy goes missing for 90% of the game. He is simply not up to it. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Christ almighty people I can't believe we are still harping on about Billy destroying us in league 1 two years ago Fact is it hasn't worked for him at Leeds and he looks completely out of his depth. I say stop hopelessly wishing he is going to turn into a 20 goal a season man overnight and get rid now. Becchio plays the target man role better than Paynter can ever hope to and knows where the back of the net is. I love Leeds but I am a realist, Paynter simply isn't good enough for us and the sooner we all realise that especially SG the better

Agree0 Disagree0

Would rather see Grella over Paynter. he might of "destroyed" us in league one but we are not in league one are we. time to cut out losses and look at other options. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I can't say whether Paynter has got what it takes or not, people can't say he will do it in the championship just because he did in league one, but at the same time you cannot judge one man on one season in a new team, a season that began with an injury in pre-season so he was always playing catch up anyway.

But my point is only that a season is not enough to judge one player good or bad, take gareth bale at spurs, his first season he was dreadful, people said spurs had wasted 6 mill on him, now look what he has gone on to do given time to get settled (and yes i know you can't compare Paytner's ability to Bales), but still, every man deserve time, just my opinion guys.

Agree0 Disagree0

Or we could retain him in the squad until a better option becomes available, you know, like we should have done with Schmeicel...

Agree0 Disagree0

This is by far the worsttttttttt made up rumour on the whole site so far

Agree0 Disagree0

The liverpool fans were anti Lucas for quite some time but he came right last season. can take some players some time to settle in. SG is the expert. Lets all hope Paynter comes good

Agree0 Disagree0

This rumour is pure BS but I admit he has to be one of the worst signings Leeds have made EVER. He is too soft, he has the turning circle of the QE2, he can't jump. I'd rather have Showunmi back and that was bad

Agree0 Disagree0

This is true just wait and see

Everyones entitled to their opinion however this was based on facts

Want a reply off everyone next week saying you should have believed me.

Agree0 Disagree0

Had you ever thought that the words 'unlucky billy, its just not worked out for you here' just means bad luck in the game, it didn't go for him, he had a goal disallowed and grayson just saying unlucky for that game, and he would look disappointed as any striker, they just want to start banging the goals in to build confidence, thats whether this post is even true or not.

Agree0 Disagree0

I personally agree that Billy needs to go. I have seen him in actions several times and not been impressed by the lack of composure and lack of effort he seems to play with. Crystal palace last season away was the key for me, big lad but didn't win one ariel ball. Think he is a league 1 player at best. good for a team like huddersfield ;)

So much agreed he has to go, however you have one hell of an eye sight to see see what he was saying from your seat. or very good ears. hahaa. (Y) MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Painters not the artist we dreamed of - one goal at relegated Preston and then a sack full of guilt edge chances probably cost us a top six finish. However if he's still there next season I will be chearing him on again

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2011 16:55:54
Nunez comes up trumps again for us - lets hope he gets a proper run of games this season to see if he is the creator in midfield we hope he is. THIS is the missing link - not Brown I reckon

Believable47 Unbelievable4

I thought Brown used to take pens for the Blunts maybe he should take our next one not Ross

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez can be the missing link that Grayson needs, but I think Brown for very different reasons can also be a missing link that the team needs.

We are Leeds...

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Ross just took the pen as it was against his old club, hence the 90 mins too

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2011 16:46:01
Nunez is going to be a legend this season. Believe. Leeds leeds leeds

Believable47 Unbelievable4

Nunez is gunna be more than a legend. He's Gunna be a BIG Elland road fan favourite and become one of the greatest players leeds have had in years {Ed032's Note - calm down dear

Agree0 Disagree0

Like Gradel, he has only one year left
on his contract- what odds he leaves on a freebie next year? Both these guys should be given a three year extension immediately {Ed045's Note -

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2011 16:36:35
Simon willing to offer Billy paynter in part exchange for Quinn and montgomery as Leeds are not willing to pay a high amount of money for them (Source- YEP)
Hopefully this deal will come off and we'll ahev got rid of paynter and brought in 2 good midfielders sheffield are likely to sell in order to keep financial stability and he was after paynter anyway.

Believable23 Unbelievable8

Maybe not a good idea now if somma is injured? Leave us becchio n mccormack... Need more than that

Agree0 Disagree0

Know what you mean about only having Becchio and McCormack, but couldn't Gradel play through middle, then maybe play Sam out wide? Just a thought.

Agree0 Disagree0

You got a link as i cant see it on YEP website

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2011 13:45:24
Fredy Montero is at Thorpe Arch having a medical. He is a colombian striker who scored loads of goals for Seattle last season. Would be a good buy :)

Believable33 Unbelievable22

Funny how he can be at Thorp Arch when he is in Seattle playing against the Colorado Rapids in the MLS at the moment

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2011 13:27:16
I reckon (if it's true that Giles Barnes is on trial), that we'll sign him up to replace the injured Somma. I'm also really gutted that Somma's injured and am now praying that McCormack and Becchio will be fully fit for the new season

Believable22 Unbelievable4

I think that the injury will be just the ticket that Nunez needs to try and force himself into the starting 11 {Ed032's Note - i think nunez will be the surprise package this season

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, I agree with you 100%. I think Nunez is going to be one of SG s secret weapons this season. {Ed032's Note - i think he's just taken time adapting to the english game

Agree0 Disagree0

Nunez has real talent. Giles Barnes is a winger not a striker {Ed032's Note - attacking midfielder /winger

Agree0 Disagree0

Barnes is not on trial. Paul dews the official press officer of Leeds united has denied that he is on trial and he knows nothing about it whatsoever

Agree0 Disagree0

Billy Sharp in talks with simon grayson over a possible 4 year deal to elland road

Believable20 Unbelievable30

Bates wont pay the kind of fee it would take to get Sharp, so its a non starter

Agree0 Disagree0

4 year deal at leeds come on we only do 1yr contracts bates would never agree terms anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would people stop posting about billy sharp. It was just a stupid rumour someone made up and put on "your rumours" section

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2011 10:42:30
leeds to offer a seasons loan to micheal johnson as he isnt required this season and isnt on tour with mc. i think quality player and could fill the gap left by killer and johnson. what does anyone else think?

Believable37 Unbelievable11

You know it s funny but I could have sworn I heard on Sky this morning that Micheal Johnson was with the team on tour, please tell me that I am wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes playing with thier developmet squad at Altringham today

Agree0 Disagree0

M.johnson is on tour wi City cos he's playing today, shown him on sky news getting off the team coach, an also told ye the city team to play n he's in it..

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not in usa. stayed in uk with bridge and a few other as not plans, he'd never get a look in with the squad they've got these days, so lets grab him while we can.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry pal but i know full well this will noy happen ..........well according to his mother

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2011 10:02:46
Leeds have offered a deal to PNE goalkeeper Andy Lonergan, Andy thinking over deal. Good goalkeeper hope it comes off.

Believable6 Unbelievable32

Heard he turned it down. Offered less money than he was on at Preston .

Agree0 Disagree0

16 Jul 2011 09:51:51
Ed, any news on the keeper situation? It's all gone a bit quiet at the moment. Are there any sightings of keepers if tour with us?

Also I heard that SG is wanting to use a lot of the youth players and start to bring them through this season, not sure if there's any truth in that but the last man who did that took us to the semis of the champions league WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS, CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE

Believable5 Unbelievable3

We'll be seeing a lot more of clayton aidy white and Ramon Nunez has improved a lot by playing at Scunthorpe and internationally so expect to see alot more from him

Agree0 Disagree0

I have been thinking that for a while. The youth should be given the oppertunity to show just what they can do. I seem to recall a certain Scottish manager doing that with the young players of them over the Pennines and look where they got.

Agree0 Disagree0

We need to give the youth to develope with the team but under the guidence of experienced players hopefully Brown can help do that

Agree0 Disagree0

Tom lees and the brothers/twins (forgot there names), also got white, parker, nunez.. alot of young faces coming in. a posotive sign. especially with the experience of Brown now, could be vital

Agree0 Disagree0

Been told by an inside source at elland road (cannot say who because they could get sacked) that smith deal is deffo off unless he takes a significant pay cut with leeds only offering 22k max and newcastle not wanting to pay more than 15-20k a week for it to go through. DONT SHOOT THE MESSENGER

Believable31 Unbelievable8

About right ...cmon smithy swallow some pride man you're not going to be anything but a benchwarmer at the toon

Agree0 Disagree0

Really what leeds are offering 22k if that was the case then we would have no problems attracting players bates pays no wages fact 10k a week tops.

Agree0 Disagree0

Grrrr its absolutely insane I'm not liking this crazy rumour I keep hearing that he'll play against Leeds in the Newcastle friendly to see what reception he gets which may sway a decision. The Smithy I knew has obviously had a lobotomy because it's not like he needs the extra money is it?

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope this is true because smith is simply not good enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

About right ...cmon smithy swallow some pride man you're not going to be anything but a benchwarmer at the toon
He doesnt care his love of football comes second to his ridiculous wages.
If he wants to return he'll drop his wages if not then lets move on

Agree0 Disagree0

Grrrr its absolutely insane I'm not liking this crazy rumour I keep hearing that he'll play against Leeds in the Newcastle friendly to see what reception he gets which may sway a decision. The Smithy I knew has obviously had a lobotomy because it's not like he needs the extra money is it?
No you just dont know the bloke personally, its not as if he walks up to people he meets on the street and Says 'Hi Im Alan Smith Im gready and only care about myself'.
His actions tell us plenty about his ambitions and it isnt to return and help leeds to the prem.

Agree0 Disagree0

As if thats genuine, he knows what the leeds fans think of him, he was there at SJP when we played the ;ast friendly, your grasping at straws

Agree0 Disagree0

Benchwarmer is all he's good for now>Dont want a player that isnt passionate about the game anymore> The newcastle friendly is aload of nonsense> he knows how leeds fans feel about him> And if he thinks its simply down to his old trafford move he's sorely mistaken>fans of the mighty whites should have some pride, he certainly hasnt.
