Nick Montgomery has got injured whilst on preseason in Malta with the Blades. Typical Monty injured for a change - hopefully this puts end to us signing him. {Ed032's Note - did he slip on his leeds united towel?

Believable16 Unbelievable5

Wikipedia is saying snodgrass is a Celtic player? Any truth or just some person editing? {Ed032's Note - wiki is not the most reliable of sources now is it?

Believable1 Unbelievable6

Quote: "Celtic
On the 18th July 2011, Snodgrass signed for Celtic on a 24 year deal. The deal for the Scottish international is believed to have involved a 42.8 M fee in addition to a swap for Morten Rasmussen, who went in the opposite direction to join up with his new teammates at Elland Road." This definitely sounds like it could be true...... {Ed032's Note - me thinks it could be wrong

Agree0 Disagree0

While your believing Wikipedia don't forget the Easter bunny and Santa claus are real and bates is Grayson 100 million to spend on messi Come on people

Agree0 Disagree0

It would be good if we got 42.8m for him but I don't think Celtic have that kind of money. {Ed032's Note - matbe they will pay with nectar points

Agree0 Disagree0

I saw the same thing on Wikipedia earlier on too before the original post on here and knew not to report it, knowing that I'd get told 'not to take Wikipedia as a gospel' or something by Ed {Ed032's Note - don't take wikipedia as gospel

Agree0 Disagree0

Didnt wiki once say heskey scored 300 goals in 7 games for barca. hmmm seems that it could be believable with heskeys eye for goal

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 21:30:54
Seems a lot of leeds fans getting a bit fed up and pessimistic about signings I still believe leeds will make 4 possibly 5 more signings possibly
Stockdale or lonergan

Although mccarthy and bates had words I believe he is a good player and we may sign him

Lichja almost definite

2 of smith quinn or monty
Tamir cohen is free? Worth a shot?

Possible striker hopfuly to replace paynter

Believable16 Unbelievable10

Cohen would be a good signing, fingers crossed, but mcartney won't be back at leeds, we need someone who can actualy defend our left side he's goood going forward Ben parker through and through

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 20:20:24
Emile Heskey on 1 year deal to cover for Somma and provide Paynter with competition.

I wrote last summer that Simon Cox was joining. I was wrong then, and I am wrong now.

Believable8 Unbelievable21

I am 61 and I could provide competition for Painter {Ed032's Note - i would search the world for a striker called decorator just for the comedy value

Agree0 Disagree0

Emile Heskey sounds unrealistic but then aagain wasn't he at Leicester with Grayson?

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds have been 2nd fav's to sign him on for along time now. I hope we dont to be honest.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi Ed, some people like Paynter and Deco rates him very highly :-) {Ed032's Note - that is bordering on genius

Agree0 Disagree0

You have to admit, Heskey has loads of prem experience, He is a good football player who can score alot of goals in the championship, Leeds need a player who can score lots of goals like beckford for leeds, more goals, more wins

Agree0 Disagree0

I would like to see the back of paynter, he is very poor, and i really cant see him getting any better.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 20:02:54
this is my first post on here, i work at sheffield train station, aidy boothroyd was on the 1811 which turns round at leeds and comes back to us to be cleaned. this service does not stop at any other major towns or cities. {Ed032's Note - thanks for posting but maybe he was shopping at harvey nics?

Believable9 Unbelievable6

Or going to barnsley. afterall, thats not a major town or city is it lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

Barnsley aint on that line nor is doncaster, i suppose from leeds he could be moving on to huddersfield maybe or bradford, kb is ruthless and if he could save a few quid on a manager....? {Ed032's Note - people on trains/ planes etc happens everyday

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 19:58:42

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 19:30:22
I want to clear all the rumours about Robert Snodgrass leaving. In the Sunday Post (a Scottish paper) there was a full length column interview with RS in which he said how much he had improved since joining leeds, how much he enjoyed it here and the fact it was more like a family than a football club. Did not sound like someone looking to leave

Believable14 Unbelievable2

18 Jul 2011 19:24:36
simon grayson to bid 1 million to get irish goalkeeper james keating on 5 year deal he is life long leeds fan and would love to sign FACT

Believable8 Unbelievable30

No chance snoddy and max will both start the season in a leeds top.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 19:04:25
Signings that will happen sometime during the next two weeks at Elland Road are;

David Stockdale (Season Long Loan + 24 Hour Recall Clause)

Eric Lichaj (Season Long Loan)

Nick Montgomery (Undisclosed Fee, Billy Paynter wont be included in any part exchange deal becase we currently have only two fit strikers)

Stephen Quinn (If no deal can be sealed regarding Nick Montgomery)

Daniel Pacheco (Loan deal, Most probably six months until Somma is fit again)

Believable17 Unbelievable15

You really think we have a chance of pacheco? Im not sure tbh, Not a bad player though {Ed032's Note - no thanks i'd rather have suso

Agree0 Disagree0

Is this the same ed 32 who said stockdale would sign on monday pacheco is a class act how di you become an ed anyway?? i know u wont print this just wanted you to know ur a bufoon

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 18:34:29
Leeds to sign George McCartney. He fell foul of club discipline rules at the end of last season and Ken Bates had words and bad mouthed him in the press. SG, KB and the player went to dinner and ironed out their differences. He will return for 850k. {Ed032's Note - doubt it

Believable4 Unbelievable31

Rubbish .... I doubt Sunderland would want any anyway... Besides... He was cr4p...

NEXT

Agree0 Disagree0

Personally i thought he wasnt that bad when going forward and crossing the ball e.t.c. but his defending was very suspect at times (Severe lack of Pace and had the turning circle of a crusise ship)

Reminded me of Ian Harte.

Agree0 Disagree0

I've just watched the Motherwell highlights on LUTV. Every dangerous attack from Motherwell came down our left flank. If you remember every opponent last season attacked our weak left flank. We need a new left back, unfortunately George Mcartney is not the answer.

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought the kid we had from Stoke was the best... Dickinson.. NO NONSENSE ..

Thats is what we need in team ..

Agree0 Disagree0

Dickinson did well for Portsmouth last season {Ed032's Note - i like david dickinson - cheap as chips!

Agree0 Disagree0

I was rumming around in the shed and i found an old brown bent leathery tool. Turned out to be david dickinson. {Ed032's Note - hahahaha were you on a bargain hunt

Agree0 Disagree0

Wouldnt pay 85p for mccartney...lazy arsed fop

Agree0 Disagree0

Must have been one hell of a meal to go from He has only played twice in the last six games. He has been fined more than once for turning up late in training. If he turned up on time and had a bit more commitment, then he wouldn t feel quite so tired. to we must splash out 850k to buy you and break our wage structure too. We will sell Max and Snod to finance it {Ed032's Note - ive heard spurs are interested in him coz redknapp feels lennon and mccartney would play well together

Agree0 Disagree0

Would rather have Paul McCartney than him ... {Ed032's Note - apparently ringo good between the sticks

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 17:48:09
Blackpools Matt Gilks is to be signed as No.1 keeper

Believable6 Unbelievable29

The same matt gilks thats just signed a new deal with blackpool??

Agree0 Disagree0

If you look on SS website, he signed a new deal with Blackpool last week

Agree0 Disagree0

The same Matt Gilks Grayson did't rate when he was Blackpool boss and tried to sell?

Agree0 Disagree0

Its true blackpool are selling all their goalkeepers and Ian holloway is going to play in nets for them next season lol {Ed032's Note - that would be entertaining

Agree0 Disagree0

2 goalkeepers from blackpool, doubt it would much rather see us sign gilks instead of rachubka though

Agree0 Disagree0

We hear alot of this but haha matt gilks lives on my estate in rochdale :) {Ed032's Note - lucky you

Agree0 Disagree0

news just in from yorkshire radio
leeds to sign sanchez what in a 3 year deal fom arsenal for 1.8 million

Believable15 Unbelievable46

You got a link to this from the Yorks radio site?

Agree0 Disagree0

Nothing definate being confirmed anywhere mate

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets have some sensible posts guys. Do you really believe we would pay 1.8m for anyone?

Agree0 Disagree0

Another useless post, nearly losing the will to live with some of the so called supporters on here.

Agree0 Disagree0

If we paid 1.8m which I think is to much means gradel is defo on his way out

Agree0 Disagree0

Given his lack of impact as an impact player last season i'm not even sure i'd want him on loan, let alone blow 1.8 million on him. No, wrong again, more pure speculation.

Agree0 Disagree0

Your having a laugh right? He's not worth that much and no way would bates pay that for him when a first choice keeper is priority

Agree0 Disagree0

LOL... 1.8m Leeds.... Ha ha ha.... Bates won't even spend 180,000

Agree0 Disagree0

Your rumour might be slightly more credible if you could even spell Sanchez Watts name right. {Ed032's Note - you watt?

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats false because i work at Yorkshire Radio and there was nothing about Sanchez Watt returning to Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

You Watt, You Watt, You Watt You Watt You Watt {Ed032's Note - you watt?

Agree0 Disagree0

I have read some hilarious posts on here but this one really takes the first prize...Leeds United paying 1.8 million for anybody...so funny...ROFL

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 17:02:26
Leeds have completed the signing of Striker Wayne Stevenson on a 3 Year Deal. The 21 year old is said to be delighted and cannot wait to show the fans what hes all about.

Sammy Clingon joing Peterborough for £850k -
Leeds can't close the deal with Coventry holding out for £900k - Another target dwindling away :-)

Believable11 Unbelievable22

This doesn't make any sense at all - why would cov want more off us than peterborough, why would he goes there and not to us and where did you get this from since cov said yesterday they didn't want to see him. Give us some credit mate

Agree0 Disagree0

Clingan is rubbish thats why hes goping to peterborough

Jimmy Bullard has been at Thorpe Arch today. He is willing to drop his wage demands from his 45k per week to 12k per week in order to play for Leeds. This will be a big signing for us. Completion within 48 hours. You heard it here first. I cannot reveal my top secret sources.

Believable13 Unbelievable41

Is this because these sources are just in your head and not actually real?

Agree0 Disagree0

I think another club could offer him more than 12k a week, plus he's a liability.

Agree0 Disagree0

Unless jimmy bullard is more stupid then i thought then he is not gonna drop 33k a week to come to leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Dear oh dear, we wouldnt sign a player of his age or in that position, now go back to sleep.

Agree0 Disagree0

Your out of your mind if u think jimmy bullard will sacrifice 33k a week just to play for leeds would love him to sign but with his wages it will prob never happen

Agree0 Disagree0

People tend to hear a lot of stuff here 'first', but then they never hear it again.

Agree0 Disagree0

JB is a whinging, injury prone player anyway - no thanks

Agree0 Disagree0

Bullard would be a fantastic acquisition, not least for his set pieces. His creativity, character and personality would soon make him a fans favourite.
Anyone saying that he is a liability should reconsider whinging about Leeds not signing Bowyer and Woodgate.

Agree0 Disagree0

Whoever posted this is a bigger plum than normal Yeah for sure he's gonna drop 33K a week(1.7M a year) to join us.

Agree0 Disagree0

"You cannot reveal your top secret sources"? Why, will your 7 year old neighbour get all cross? Now go and play COD on your XBox 360 and take your box of Kleenex with you. Silly little boy

Agree0 Disagree0

Jimmy Bullard is, in my opinion, a waste of space. I think Paynter is useless but I would rather have a useless player than with the character of a JB. Before anyone misses the point and jumps in - I do know Paynter and Bullard play in different positions

Agree0 Disagree0

Believable9 Unbelievable56

Can we please have some normal people posting on here, the last 3 postings are verging on ridiculous. {Ed032's Note - you should read the stuff that doesn't get posted

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh well I suppose it brightens up a wet dreary Monday. Ho hum...LOL mot guys things can only get better ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

Can we have a new page of stuff that doesnt get posted on this page just to see what people say {Ed032's Note - trust me you wouldn't want to read it. we do post the funny ones but get a lot of swearing and abuse

Agree0 Disagree0

18 Jul 2011 14:29:36

Believable6 Unbelievable54

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

Gotta love this site where going to sign a player who has just retired and has an imaginary bmw class :') {Ed032's Note - you ought to read the stuff that doesn't get posted!

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe KEEF Lemon is coming home and signing for the mighty whites {Ed032's Note - we've got enough lemons playing in the defence

Agree0 Disagree0

Paul scholes Behave will you, if you can't say owt interesting dont say owt at all Worse than "judas" smith signing

Believable3 Unbelievable49

Didnt N'gog just get back into Liverpool John Lennon airport this morning after Liverpool's Asia tour?? He has done well to get to ER already Maybe it just is not true. {Ed032's Note - maybe he parachuted in?

Agree0 Disagree0

Stop smoking the wacky backy you numpty, ngog outside elland road my AR$E {Ed032's Note - maybe he's working on the re-developement of the east stand or has a summer job in subway

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe he 'sighs' because reading your rubbish post has made him feel slightly sad?

Agree0 Disagree0

Mate of mine who works at the newsagent opposite ER says that N'Gog is now outside ER gates doing Keepy Uppys in the new Leeds kit. He thinks he is showing of his skills in a bid to impress the Leeds Management. {Ed032's Note - is the chippy open?

You have been drinking eggnog outside elland road and sighing?

LEEDS UNITED plan to test Coventry City's resolve over Sammy Clingan with a £1m bid, national reports claim.

Believable30 Unbelievable39

If we have 1m available why Sammy Clingan ? surely we could get better for that {Ed032's Note - like some new executive boxes - oh forgot we are already doing that

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats about 4 times what the Colonel would pay for Sammy Clingan {Ed032's Note - arent clingans from star trek?

Agree0 Disagree0

We've bid 200k, Coventry want 900k. Deal to be done for something inbetween?

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope this is not true, watch him for clubs and country dont rate him hope leeds look else were surely ther r better player/players out there

Agree0 Disagree0

If we offered somewhere in the 400-600k bracket then we would have a very good deal, seen him play numerous times now and he is very good from set-pieces and a good passer of the ball and he isnt scared of a tackle either ;)

Believable8 Unbelievable26

Hmmm ed can you clear up if you have to pay a loan fee I'm not sure about that tbh? {Ed032's Note - i believe that a club can ask for a fee for a loan

Agree0 Disagree0

250k not a problem, as bates just made 1 million plus on the kasper deal
and he hasnt spent a penny yet on any transfers {Ed032's Note - he's lost his chequebook apparently

Joe Hughes lined up to replace Somma, he plays for Glapwell Fc and scored 30 goals in just 12 apperance last year, Leeds Scouts watched him on Monday night were he scored 2 goals, there impressed and he is only 17


Watch this space

Believable10 Unbelievable25

I am Glapwell goal keeper, i have heard of this rumour and i believe it to be 100% real after talking to him about moving to a bigger club {Ed032's Note - where is glapwell?

Agree0 Disagree0

Chesterfield, i saw him play last year, tall, quick and strong along with a good eye for a goal

Agree0 Disagree0

Could be another Charlie Austin from non-league football.

Agree0 Disagree0

According to wiki there is nobody with this name in the squad surely if he scored 30 goals last season he would be listed?

NEW AWAY SHIRT FOR THIS SEASON

100% TRUE - Heard it here first.

Ok, so after going to ER myself on saturday to buy the new shirt, got into work this morning and a colleague told me that she'd been in to buy the new shirts for her two lads yesterday.

As some of you already know the blue ones are the "2nd away strip", there isnt currently a 1st away. After my colleague spoke to a store worker asking "Is this blue away shirt the one the squad will be wearing away and at cup matches away?", the store worker hesitantly said "...No, there will be another away shirt released in new colours next month, and it will be black based with either red or green"

Slightly bit cheeky Mr Bates...

MOT

Believable16 Unbelievable32

RED no chance. Dont want no red on a LEEDS kit

Agree0 Disagree0

It's 2nd/Away. There will only be 2 kits. I work as a Macron UK key account rep.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well thats not true Mr Macron, as i work within the stock supply for the LUFC store. I can confirm there is an order for another (or should i say different) stock of kit to arrive next month. Can't say when or what colours, shouldn't really be saying any of this at all as it's very hush-hush.

Agree0 Disagree0

To be honest very unlikley as there is already 1 dark kit

Agree0 Disagree0

It is a new shirt sponsor, so surely that means a new away shirt

Agree0 Disagree0

Didn't Leeds previously play in red before Revie came in?

Anyway a nice new away kit will probably happen as we're in our last year with Macron and they'll want to milk the money out of the fans, especially if we get a new kit maker next season, with another 2/3 new kits to come

Agree0 Disagree0

Bolloxs, No chance theyd put red on it after the stink caused of the redkite logo

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds have played in red when Don Revie was in charge.

18 Jul 2011 08:43:04
sanchez watt to come on loan witha an option of a perminent move this is because of the injury to somma who is out for 6 months

Believable20 Unbelievable24

Somma is a goal scoring machine whereas Watt can't hit a cows ar*e with a banjo so hope this is not true

Agree0 Disagree0

Forget watt, should be after the feeney brothers the new xavi and inesta

Agree0 Disagree0

Why not bring grella back in if somma is going to be out for some time? whenever he played he seemed to bring something different to the team. he was hardworking, skillful and fast and i think he has been unfortunate not to have been given a chance before now. certainly better than watt will ever be

Agree0 Disagree0

Watt is an abysmal player, he has nothing to offer but ego

Agree0 Disagree0

This will be the third season Watt will have been put out on loan. If he was any good he would be pushing for a place at Arsenal by now. Hope someone else is foolish enough to take him. {Ed032's Note - you watt?

Agree0 Disagree0

Watt has loads of potential and a transfer away from Arse maybe just watt is needed for the lad to improve

Believable15 Unbelievable22

That's an obvious ploy to get Leeds to increase their wages offer to him

Even if thats true its ridiculous max is good but he doesnt deserve a premier league wage if he's actually demanding that much i hope we sell
