NW confirmed today that FP has not signed for LUFC

Looks like warnock has accepted that he won't be getting the funds before the close of the window (unless we're lucky with the takeover) so has resorted to loans. This might not be such a bad move because if all goes to plan and we get promoted with the loanee striker getting some goals, then we are likely to sign him on a permanent basis anyway!

Complete smoke screen from NW takeover has been completed new owners to be announced on the pitch prior to kick off. NW has already moved to close in on 3 permanent moves today, two will be unveiled neither are FP.i

Last I heard, there were "necessary legal matters" still to resolve. But the feeling is that there's not much talking left to be done #lufc

from phil hay

Believable36 Unbelievable9

Legal matters will probably be related to ownership of TA as council own part of the land and one of cuddly kens companies own the rest, so if its legal matters with leeds city council it could drag on for a bit longer still

Paul Connolly has joined Portsmouth on a short term loan.
Lets hope he impresses and secures a permanent move away!
MOT

Believable40 Unbelievable1

Hope Pompy can get him full-time, he should be decent at that level and it'll help their rebuilding process. Can't help but sympathise with Pompy can you?
DonnyLeeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Fair play, I hope Paul does well wherever he goes, he's a LUFC man who served us well during a tricky last season.

LR, Northants

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah I feel sorry for them no doubt, having to take Paul Conolly ffs.

Agree0 Disagree0

I met billy painter and connoly in antalyia airport in turkey, funny enough on the same plane. we approached him, he's a decent guy but conoly was sat down eating hariboes!:O They both said they wanted to stay... P*SS OFF..!

Connolly on loan to Pompey...we get Peltierfrom them seems fair {Ed013's Note - I am confused}

Believable13 Unbelievable14

Peltier was at Leicester.

Agree3 Disagree0

We got peltier from leicester.

Agree2 Disagree0

WOT the hell you on about ??????

Agree2 Disagree0

Think its ment to say we have got plenty from them so this seems fair.shows how good a player connolly is when he has to go impress pompey for a deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im glad hes on loan, i just hope that even in their state Pompey are contributing at least something to his wages, not expecting 100% but at least something

Agree0 Disagree0

Or maybe he meant Pearce from Pompey

Agree1 Disagree0

We got him from Leicester!

Lust said that they expected the takeover to be completed before the wolves game. Wouldn't it be amazing if it was announced just before kick off that it had been completed! That would be sure to create maximum atmosphere at ER!

Mot

Believable25 Unbelievable17

No, they didn't.......they remain confident but have put no timescale on it

Agree0 Disagree0

When did they say that?

Agree0 Disagree0

Wouldn't it be amazing if LUST actually got it right for once !!
PeteMOT

Agree1 Disagree0

Hate to say it but LUST are not really helping the situation. I know they have good intentions at heart, but these announcements have only served to build fans hopes up, only to dash them and then give hope again. When the wolves game has been and gone with no sign of a takeover, fans' hopes could be crushed beyond repair.
MaltaWhite

Agree0 Disagree0

The atmosphere will be great anyway come on this is the start of the football season. We have built a strong squad without investment. Let's not become like the prawn sandwich brigade like some clubs we do put part and support our team whatever, let the money men worry about the other stuff

Agree0 Disagree0

Wish it was true for neil to bring in what he wants and if he does get us up i would love it if he stayed with us nw is becoming a true leeds fan

who would of thought that a few year ago

Media understands Swansea City have made a bid for Blackpool defender Alex Baptiste. However, there could be competition for Baptiste, with Wigan, Leeds and Nottingham Forest also thought to be interested.

Fletcher, O'hara and Doyle all out for Wolves tomorrow. Jarvis plays.

Believable12 Unbelievable7

Dont want to wish ill on other players, but that's brilliant news!

Agree1 Disagree0

No fletcher is a big bonus for us though ebanks blake was very prolific at CH level last time around so we need to be very careful

Agree1 Disagree0

Just seen heard Becchio is going to LA Galaxy, giving us enough money to re-sign Beckford! Heard it hear first, wont happen until after tomorrows game though. Not sure how this makes me feel, i like Becchio but Beckford needs to come home!

MOT!

Believable3 Unbelievable49

Go away we dont want beckford better available cheaper!! o.w

Agree2 Disagree0

Were u heard this??....BIGSAV

Agree0 Disagree0

Where you heard this i cnt see it being true my friend nt after ross signs a new 3yr deal

Agree0 Disagree0

Total bull .why would we get rid of becchio for beckford

Agree1 Disagree0

Yes, but when NW joined he said he had been trying to sign becchio for ages so i dont think hed let him go

Agree2 Disagree0

What a load of crap. beckford can stay where he is. he doesnt belong here anymore he made that choice over 2 years ago

Agree2 Disagree0

Why o why start beckford stuf again YES we are after a striker BUT there's far better out there for same money!he will make us us too one dimensional where everything has to go via him YE He scores loads of goals for us but HEY who wouldn't with the amount we created for him! He also missed loads too..... Come on let's move on forwards getanther striker in and see rest of team ie midfield,score their share as they should do! As without necks the ball will be played thru them not bypass them
Wingy Mk Leeds for life MOT ,!

Agree0 Disagree0

I dnt belive becchio is going to la galaxy if we get rid of the people on the transfur list we will hav enough money 4 beckford
beckford home soon plz

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio far better a team player beckford just lazy and greedy could get slot better than him

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio to be sold because hes been horse poo recently. Beckford wants to come back, we can get him cheap, he can score load of goals if played right, he was never played the way he is succesful. On the shoulder of the defender, using his pace to burn off defence. Beckford and Macca up front will be class, plus Gray used as the big man for when we need to just hoof it! You'll be all wetting your pants when hes back and then whos the person.

Just spreading the rumour from a Galaxy fan re becchio then heard beckford via a fella at YEP.

BELIEVE! MOT!

Agree0 Disagree1

Utter bs, leicester already stated beckford not going anywhere and the same goes for becchio, just made up rubbish

Agree1 Disagree0

Absolute rubbish. Beckford belongs in League 1. Misses too many chances. Won't get the same number the higher he goes. Not good enough for a promotion challenge. Becchio works his socks off and is a team player.

Agree0 Disagree0

NW admits only way of improving squad now before close of transfer window is by bringing in one loan signing.

Lets hope its a quality striker - Maynard perhaps?

WibseyWhite

Believable14 Unbelievable7

Great news. Ross just signed new 3 year deal. Just need that big target striker for him and Beccs to play off now. Maynard fits the bill well, but looks like it will only be a loan if available

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi, please define big, it cannot be Maynards height, as Luke is about the same height, and he would not be my idea of a target striker for someone who is taller, i.e. Luciano.

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2012 15:06:44
Warnock is set to look to the loan market to further strengthen his squad before the window closes

Believable14 Unbelievable1

Leeds to sign Alex Baptiste - he will be given the number 6 shirt. As soon as he completes his medical after a 600k bid was accepted

Believable6 Unbelievable28

Kisnorbo already has the number 6 shirt

Agree0 Disagree0

Paddy Kisnorbo has already been allocated number 6

Agree0 Disagree0

NO CHANCE. A lot of other teams after him that'll be willing to pay more than 600k!

Agree0 Disagree0

17 Aug 2012 13:01:56
Leeds reportedly looking at Alex Baptiste from Blackpool. do we need another defender?

The D man

Believable18 Unbelievable27

How you know this ? He would be good signing strong fast experienced and can play cb or rb

Agree0 Disagree0

Swansea in for him and we cant compete with that!

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes we definitely do need another defender, an injury or two, a suspension and we are light back there
Grahamc

Agree0 Disagree0

It wouldnt hurt to have another defender. but another striker would be better

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes but not him

Agree0 Disagree0

It would be nice to but think we need to invest in attacking options now

Agree0 Disagree0

Could be a very good signing in my opinion

Agree0 Disagree0

We do need another, Kisnorbo is the only recognised backup at CB if this deal pulls through which i dont think it will, Baptiste should start ahead of lees then kisnorbo backup after lees {Ed013's Note - Monty Gimpel or another Youngster could be used}

Agree0 Disagree0

We ant gor 6 quid never mind 600k

Agree1 Disagree0

Please tell me this piquionne is not true.if it is I give up.this so called takeover is ruining us at the moment.if it was near then piquionne would be nowhere near.if it doesnt happen then bates is even more better off than last year nett income on players wise.
I have to trust warnock but this is deperation

Believable36 Unbelievable14

There doesn't seem to be any news on him having signed. I agree he's a total waste of space... And we all thought it was gonna be Nicky Maynard!

Agree0 Disagree0

You give up? ruining us? jeez, quit the dramatics!

Agree0 Disagree0

The bloke can score goals what was that for donny

Agree0 Disagree1

FP wouldnt be the worst buy he can score goals and is certainly more proven and at a higher level than nicky maynard and is not as injury prone! wot u giving up on like? your club doesnt need you if your willing to give up on them so easily!
LtKK

Agree0 Disagree1

It's not a rumour,to my horror!
According to sky he's going to leeds.
just getting my head around EHD signing
but FP this is a shocker.

Agree1 Disagree0

Original poster..more proven than maynard at this level.check again mate

Agree0 Disagree1

Still no mention of him signing on OS..

Not in squad listing..

Don't think we should be panicking just yet about him!

Hopefully SSN are wrong being being fed bull by Fitzy!

As for people calling for Warnock out.. need to be questioned of their sanity, and if they really are Leeds fans?

Agree0 Disagree0

OMG all this doom n gloom before we've even started the season, can we cut em bit o slack and at least let us get a few games under our belts before we start slating the lads, suppose if EHD or freddie Kruger nets the winner tomoz they'll be brilliant signings....... MOT bet ur glass is always half empty :-/

Agree0 Disagree0

Sky sports have removed it, thankfully! Number 9 shirt still free. Rumour has it we will sign a striker before the Wolves game.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wouldn't he of had to of been signed by now to be eligable to play tomorrow?
Gizmo MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

If Piquionne was signed he still wouldn't get on the pitch ahead of what we already have. He's so slow now he probably couldn't attempt to fly-tip and get away without being caught. Oh, hang on a second ..

Agree0 Disagree0

Love it .. Fitzy new Sky Sports Source

Agree0 Disagree0

No news updates on Picciuonne so hopefully a Sky News blooper. Nothing to say we haven't already signed a striker or that a new signing could be introduced tomorrow, but highly unlikely anyone would play tomorrow anyway......

Agree0 Disagree0
