Been to ER today for fathers day and walked past 6 men suited and booted on the land behind the kop, do lufc own this?? {Ed013's Note - No, at one bit a police station was going to be built there!}

Believable3 Unbelievable11

I read that the Police Station was going to be built on the old greyhound track wasn't it?
PeteMOT {Ed013's Note - May have been at one time, but the police definitely wanted that site a year or two a go}

Agree0 Disagree0

They start building police station end of this month start of next

Agree0 Disagree0

Police station going where dog track was I think.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not entirely sure but it was being used by the council as a car park for match days for the last 2/3 games of the season

Agree0 Disagree0

I work at Leeds united and a police station is been built their over the next 9 months

Agree0 Disagree0

The police station is going to be buit where the old greyhound stadium used to be

Agree0 Disagree0

Seems we can't even agree where the Police Stn is going to be built ... fat chance of agreeing on the players we would like to sign? Good thing we have Mr Warnock to do that for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

The takeover is very nearly complete after the takeover we will sign players including Rhodes beckford gunter and more

Believable10 Unbelievable27

I can see maybe beckford and maybe rhodes but not bothe it would be pointless

Agree0 Disagree0

I feel really optimistic about some of this post......the 'and more' bit could actually prove to right !

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds don't have the money to buy Rhodes, takeover or no takeover

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't ask questions, just listen (as it were).
The takeover is not happening, hence NW is staying!
Uninpeachable source.

Tex.

Agree0 Disagree0

Seriously Rhodes? id like us to get him but bigs bucks we dont have

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah and next week Messi, Ronaldo, and Gomez are all signing too.

Agree0 Disagree0

I can see this if we to get taken over . im pretty sure anyone who comes in as the new owners will want us up this season coming and will invest . they will be able to make a big profit by getting to prem league and selling straight on .maybe even double what they pay

Agree0 Disagree0

With the fair play rule dont think we could get rhodes with max off 6 mill plus profits u be lucky to get the lad 8 mill they want get better plays 4 that

Agree0 Disagree0

Just been texting one of my good friends and she is VERY close to Jonny Howson, and she said since he's been back in leeds he's been to a few meetings at elland road and invited to use the gym at train at thorp arch she told me not to read too much into it, but well i'd love to have him back! she says this could be nothing but i'm hoping that with the takeover the new owners realise how much we need him to come home! he was my idol and my favourite player ever, love to see him in that fourteen shirtagain!

Believable4 Unbelievable26

I understand who you are talking about, his sister ye? shes one of my bestfriends, she says that he has been repeatedly to elland road and thorp arch and also confirmed that he did go to Villa's training ground too, she thinks that if we dont sign another player into Jonny's faithful 14 shirt then theres a possibility he'd come back in the future, and he has confirmed this himself that hed like to return, but she thinks that its more likely he'll go to Villa seen as he left for premiership football in the first place, she said that she had also expressed how upset she is that he left and wants him to come home as she cant go to norwich due to her school (she goes to the same as me) and i know personally that his sister means alot to him and he has previously considered returning home as she has began to become very depressed since his departure, so the possibility of him returning is very much possible, i'll keep speaking to her and see what she says, {Ed013's Note - Now then trouble causer, stop stirring s**t up and replying to your own posts. Jonny is happy in the Premier league and did very well, well enough for top 6 clubs to monitor him. Grow up and stop replying to your own bull s**t or I will block you}

Agree0 Disagree0

Forget it mate he just using the facilties thats all howson wont rejoin leeds unless we get promoted and if we do there better players out there {Ed013's Note - Ignore this, it is made up}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha ha ha ha so funny. Ed i know you said you would stop posts where the poster was called an person or worse but in his case you should make an exception.

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant understand these sort of rumours because if we get the money in from a take over surely the likes of Johnny would be below what we are aiming for. I liked him but he was hit and miss and at the end of the day left. Id rather us stop shopping in the bargain basement if there is money to spend whilst still getting players hungry for the challenge like Wilko did.
Gaz

Agree0 Disagree0

He left us for money and a slightly 'better' career, i personally don't want anyone like that in our team but if he was to come back thats the managers choice and i'd welcome him back but why is everyone so fixated on having old boys back? ps ed i've finally put my details in is that all i have to do?

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi,
I would like to clarify a few things and also confirm what you put Ed,
This post is total Bull, for one he does not have a sister and secondly he is on holiday and has been for a few weeks now.
Although I’m sure publicly he would not comment on any return to Leeds, we must all remember he is a local lad and supported Leeds from a very young age and members of his family are still season ticket holders at ER.
So you never know,

Agree0 Disagree0

Excellent player -we've never been the same since he left. More likely to be continuing his ascent upwards, with Villa or Spurs likely next ports of call. Thanks for your fantastic contribution Jonny, shame things were as ropey as they were here when the Norwich offer came in. Look forward to seeing in an England shirt sometime soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

Jonny Howson is a judas, we made him the player he is through our youth system he gets one sniff of premier league football and f**ks off, he can steer well clear of ER for me

Agree0 Disagree0

Seems that Snodgrass is very keen to get linked back up with his good friend and ex-Leeds skipper Jonny Howson, after hearing the rumours of him following him to norwich, and now with Jonny being spotted at Aston Villa's training ground and linked with Villa, there are also rumours now flying around that Snodgrass could be heading there. Major Possibility as it seem, Lambert is keen on both players.

Believable13 Unbelievable13

If they're still so keen to be together why doesn't Jonny boy just come home...Logical Explanation.

Agree0 Disagree0

As ever if snoddy wants to stay he will it all depends on how much he loves the club or if his business interests come first this is regardless of our ambition as I see it (or lack of for the pessimists). Remember these guys want to play at the highest level and at this moment it is unfortunately not at ER but we are run efficiently and profitably which is why there is current interest in us so this may be enough for snoddy and others to give us one more season or sign their contracts at reasonae money we can afford to pay MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Funny howson back in leeds using the thorpe arch training facilities to keep in shape be hard to be using the vills ones too

Agree0 Disagree0

Utter rubbish, howson not coming back and snodgrass not going anywhere

Agree0 Disagree0

im an irish leeds fan and heard a few rumours about keith andrews coming to leeds might not be a bad signing he was 1 of our better players in our dismal euro 2012 campaign he is no xavi or fabregas but at championship level would be decent any thoughts?

jimmy wex

Believable16 Unbelievable10

Hi he turned us down last season lets move on from him

Agree0 Disagree0

The same Keith Andrews set up to sign for Bolton?

Agree0 Disagree0

It doesn't say much for the Irish team, but Andrews was actually one of the worst players at the whole tournament. Dreadful player and one that Leeds can well do without.

Agree0 Disagree0

From a very reliable source Adam clayton has signed for Huddersfield

Believable13 Unbelievable21

Ha ha nice try....according to his Twitter account he's on his way to Mexico for a holiday

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry afraid you wrong there just tweeted adam and he laughed

Agree0 Disagree0

Why cant he have signed for HTFC just because he's on his way to Mexico? Will his passport have been stamped and they wont let him in?

Agree0 Disagree0

Who's your reliable source - lord Lucan ?? Nice try,,, going on his hols.....

Agree0 Disagree0

Clayton has no intention of dropping down a level to play for a relegation favourite. His hope is to remain with Leeds or move on to a lower level Premiership club.

Agree0 Disagree0

Huddersfield will be nowhere near relegation .if things don't sort them selves out we will be the ones looking at relegation.
in fact Huddersfield could be the team that that pushes for promotion . Grayson with money will do well.

Agree0 Disagree0

He could be going to Bognor Regis for all I care never mind Mexico...Fact of the matter he has not signed for the Yapping obsessed with every thing Leeds utd Terriers' !

Agree0 Disagree0

On twitter he has put buzzing for 1st game vs wolves :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Who's the muppet backing huddersfield for promotion push,get real ,grayson had good players when he got us promoted,town will struggle when rhodes goes

Agree0 Disagree0

From SSN: (meaniing no-one else has been signed, contrary to ppl saying we have signings made to be announced 1st Jul) oh Ed i changed my screen name to something more realistic! please note note been on for a while.

Leeds defender Jason Pearce hopes the club add a few more new faces this summer before the players return for pre-season training.

Pearce, 24, sealed his move to Elland Road from Portsmouth last month and is manager Neil Warnock's only signing since the end of last season.

"I do have a look on the Sky Sports website to see if anything is happening," Pearce told Yorkshire Radio.

"I was obviously the first one to come in and I would hope to see a few more before the start of pre-season."

Pearce signed a four-year deal with Leeds at the beginning of May for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £500,000.

Warnock had hoped Pearce's former Pompey team-mate Joel Ward would follow him to Elland Road, but he recently completed a move to Crystal Palace amid reports Leeds could not find the £400,000 transfer fee.

Former Derby midfielder Paul Green and QPR goalkeeper Paddy Kenny are two more players recently linked with a move to the club.

Believable6 Unbelievable7

Thanks for this very useful information. I will sleep very well tonight.

Agree0 Disagree0

So glad I read this one, I can relax now in the knowledge that we are saved with the signing of a single player.
Bless you!
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

More like useless information. Why would Pearce know who's been signed as he signed his deal then went straight on holiday. Leeds have done some business that the rest of the football world know nothing about apart from those involved!

3 signings have been made be assured

Agree0 Disagree0

Saying on twitter that hudds are after mccormack. Lacyleeds

Believable9 Unbelievable16

Rumour is he and grayson had a bust up so woulnt buy into that one

Agree0 Disagree0

How do you fancy us signing a striker who has scored in recent Champions League, well here's one I've heard from a very close source to ER that Leeds are looking at - KONSTANTINOS MITROGLOU - young, lost his way a bit, but had a very good season on loan last year and is now ready to start firing again.

Believable11 Unbelievable13

I'd take him - his stats seem pretty good - just seems too much of a coincidence Greeks play yesterday then get linked with a Greek international - doubt Warnock is looking, but hope I am wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

The rumours seem to be drying up now.
We seem to have moved on to the obscure now, names from the Illiad and the Oddysey.
I can't see Leeds taking risks with a player that might turn out good but will more than likely cause more trouble than he's worth.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

This happens all the time when the euros are on...

Agree0 Disagree0

Sounds good to me, decent stats decent experience for a young lad, sign him up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not going to happen as we can't afford the letters for the back of his shirt.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't want him for one reason- I'm struggling to fit him in a song!
