Phil hay seems to think Delph will be signing tomorrow. Let's hope so as we could do with some good news!

Believable17 Unbelievable3

It's true! The club shop were told by Shaun Harvey to print Delph and 25 on a home shirt last night,LUFC will confirm his signing from TA sometime this afternoon.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would you print the name of another clubs player on the back of our shirts? Unless you mean he is going to be a permanent signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

? He will show it at TA this afternoon to the press, anyway he has to wear his name and number when he plays. The club shop print all the first team shirts.

Agree0 Disagree0

Irish Pompey keeper Stephen Henderson is apparently a target for leeds to replace Andy Lonergan.

Believable8 Unbelievable46

Hope not .i will crap on elland roads door step if they sell lonergan aswel

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would we want a new keeper, lonners is perfectly adequate to do a job. Wish all these wrong ens would stop talking sh*t, yeah we sold howson, people need to get over it we won't sell our best lads unless it's really necessary, not really related to you're answer but oh well. Nobody will ever be bigger than this club not now, not ever!

Agree0 Disagree0

I know for a fact that everton have watched lonergan, in fact he was watched four times before he broke his finger. {Ed013's Note - They was interested before we signed him}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 21:20:20
My prediction, Delph to sign tomorrow or Matty Pattison, Kris Boyd and St Ledger to sign after the Birmingham match!

Believable21 Unbelievable21

Sorces show that we may be getting former Wigan Athletic player Jason Komas as a free agent

Believable31 Unbelievable14

Same age as brown..6 years too late,but free so possible

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd maybe believe your sorces if you could actully spell sources, or indeed Koumas properly. {Ed013's Note - I bet you are perfect at everything in life. Remember some people can be dyslexic and therefore cant help it}

Agree0 Disagree0

True Ed, I agree to a point, I am dyslexic, but I somehow know how to spell check what I write

Agree0 Disagree0

First post - Koumas has only just turned 32 he should have plenty left

Agree0 Disagree0

Plenty left....thats why theres a big 'q' for his signature then,he was at cardiff on loan all last season and played a handful of games,he's not what we need right now thats a fact

Agree0 Disagree0

Hasnt he been training with the squard, to keep match fit?

Agree0 Disagree0

He would be a good squad player, and a good squad will help to see us through injuries, suspensions & tiredness upto the end of the season

I see no problem with offering Koumas a 6 month short term contract. I'm sure still has a bit of that old skill, if not the pace about him to make a difference.

Good strategic singing in my opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorces showed me there are rumours that we may sign Alex Oxled-Chambeline on loan from Arsenal

Believable8 Unbelievable48

Bit hard to believe you when you can't spell *sources; this is absolute bull..

Agree0 Disagree0

The same oxlane-chamberlain who stated on twiter I'm not going anywhere im enjoying playing at arsenal. Get off FIFA 12 you moron, you've probs got school tomorrow!

Agree0 Disagree0

Are we really going down the road of correcting grammer now. wtf?

and as much as i would love him to come to our club, he did state he's happy at arsenal. and never wanted to leave.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 21:06:43
Non-leaguer Harry Nesbite is set to sign for leeds tommorow.

Believable6 Unbelievable27

Yeah i heard about him isn't he a winger whose 16

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 21:03:35
Sources have shown me that Aidian White has moved to Derby County .

Believable7 Unbelievable49

Biggest load of rubbish! he is a local lad at leeds and hes only 18! he wouldn't want a move away to another champioship club who i doubt will get promoted! if he goes anywhere it will be a premier league team!

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes its true he has een sold for the value of an easter egg... we also have humpty dumpty and jake the peg lined up on free transfers...never heard so much s@it in my life

Agree0 Disagree0

Jake the peg is fast than o'brien at any rate and he hasn't gone but they have been looking and if a bid comes in this may be possible

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 21:02:30
Leeds manager Simon Grayson on the verge of being sacked and being replaced by Neil Warnock

Believable28 Unbelievable41

Really hope so, players would sign contracts then!

Agree0 Disagree0

This isnt true. Warnock has stated he will be focusing on media work for the next few months and is keen to have a break from management

Agree0 Disagree0

Please anybody but Warnock! I can't believe how responsive people are being about this man. He's not that great a manager, coupled with the fact he can start a fight in an empty room, and comes up with pathetic excuses for every defeat! Neil 'This game should be replayed' Warnock!

Agree0 Disagree0

SG is not as popular as you may think with fans and more importantly the players. Rightly or wrongly he has lost cred' over the extra marital episode and his style of management is not well liked by 90% of the staff. If it wasnt for Snodin being a brisge the club would be on its knees, oh in football terms it is!

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 20:54:54
Many sources are showing me the Billy Sharp from Doncaster Rovers wouldn't go to Leiscter City but may come to Leeds as he is local there

Believable32 Unbelievable27

Stop posting all you stupid 'SOURCES TELL ME"just pipe dreams

Agree0 Disagree0

Try this for size; McCormack to be sold for 2.5 million to Wigan = Billy sharp from Doncaster.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be nice to have a striker that remembers where to put the ball

Agree0 Disagree0

Billys a Sheffield lad, so stop lying and saying hes from Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

He would cost money or at least 2m more than we would pay. My guess is the 'Sharp to Southampton' 'rumour has much more credibility.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 18:32:29
LUFC Official Site - Rogers has work permit and now needs to complete visa paperwork etc. and should be able to play by next week.

Believable39 Unbelievable7

Really did not know that wat surprise, tell u wat why not tell us something else obvious, wud not mind your only bout 10 hours late pal.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wow chill out mate. the guys only gving us info

i havent been on the leeds site yet myself, so ta for thedetails {Ed013's Note - some people require a chill pill on here! I bet Mr Bates would love to see all this bickering from the fans}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 18:18:59
just posted 20mins.ago on villa rumours site delph has signed and will play saturday

Believable31 Unbelievable29

Villa haven't said and nor have leeds so don't believe it until they say

Agree0 Disagree0

Top post... at least summat on here turned out to be true lol

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 17:57:31
leeds going to sign billy sharp his agent told us he is local lad from whitkirk thats why he did not go to leicster watch this space

Believable26 Unbelievable48

Billy Sharp will not be signing for leeds utd
not now not never and listen
an agent would never break trust with his
client in that way

Agree0 Disagree0

I sure hope so, maybe, JUST maybe the money from howson will be spent on Sharp.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a chance,anyway its a defender or 2 and a centre midfielder we need asap

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't talk rubbish if we can't afford to keep jh how can we buy bs bates is the puppet master and sg is his puppet no ambition at all to get in prem if we went up bates would have to pay Gerald Krasner 20 mill from wen we was in major debt

Agree0 Disagree0

20m to Krasner? Shows you know nothing about Leeds. The club is bound by the exit from administration to pay an additional 5m total to creditors if promoted to the Premier League within 15 years. On the basis of PL earnings for 1 season alone this is no barrier to promotion.
Sharps wage demands are a barrier to most teams trying to sign him, including bottom end Premier League

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed stop posting crap rumours about us signing sharp or rhodes you know as well as the rest of us its total b****cks! {Ed013's Note - I don't post them, I read them and then let you have your say by allowing them on the site}

Agree0 Disagree0

I have it on good authority that Sharpe wanted 30k per week to go to Leicester and there's no way we'll pay that. And rightly so, he's too slow and can't hack it at a big club, hence why the Blunts sold him on. He's just about at his level at Doncaster.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sharp is a born and bred blade ,Montgomery is the Whitkirk lad {Ed013's Note - Just to clear this up, Billy Sharp was born in Sheffield and Nick Montgomery was born in Leeds}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 17:00:09
just heard something interesting...leeds have accepted the bid for howson but he'd prefer to sit out his contract and see what happens at season end ala beckford.
he hasn't requested a move but there is brinksmanship going on between his agent and KB over the price of a buyout clause and wages rise should premiership be achieved. this came from a pretty well placed source.
watch this space! it might be that JH doesn't go after all...

Believable21 Unbelievable26

Hes going end off stop having false hopes just another player what claims hes leeds through and through then f*%cs off. he will be a flop in prem anyway and see whos laughin last. end of day norwich are havin something called first season syndrome see where they are after next season

Agree0 Disagree0

^^^^ What do you mean "he'll be a flop in the prem", if we'd have got there with him, we'd have kept him and been happier for it!

Agree0 Disagree0

Exactly what happened with Beckford. Bates is out of his depth with todays agents who in the main can tie him in knots legally. Thats why whenever he mentions possible investors it never happens due to his 70's management style, they walk away not wishing to go back in time and work under the mushroom management style,"keep em in the dark & s*** on them twice a week!" this story might just have some legs !

Agree0 Disagree0

Wish it was true but think u r dreaming,just been flicking through other club pages and everyone taking piss out of us, teams with fans not even close to being as deserving of success as us bates what r u doing to our club! {Ed013's Note - Let them laugh mate. Our time will come}

Agree0 Disagree0

It would make sense for his agent to extend his contract with leeds and insert a buyout clause should leeds not be promoted

Agree0 Disagree0

That is crap. Howson wants to go I assure you

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 16:12:03
Leeds' link with Kris Boyd increases as he claims he wants a move back to britain and wants someone to snap him up shortly in the transfer window. We've shown interest in him and if he joins the club I would be delighted as him and forssel would be a great partnership as McCormack & becchio are not performing also he has the highest goalscoring record in the SPL (164 goals)

Believable18 Unbelievable17

Exactly! read your own comment...THE SPL my sausage dog could score up there, and she`s been dead for three years... RIP BADGER

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do we want kris Boyd we need someone with pace all defenders hate playing against strikers with pace I agree we should go for simion Jackson off Norwich as part of the jh deal

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 15:00:58
Just a thought, if Jonny Howson so badly wanted PL football then why didn't LUFC write a buyout clause into his contract if we didn't gain promotion ? So many players have these clauses nowadays and it would be win/win for both parties.

Believable15 Unbelievable4

And what fee would you suggest the buy out clause to be? Too low and the club lose out, too high and the player won't sign. Contract negotiations are incredibly complex, Howson's has been going on for 12 months! If anything we should have sold him in the summer.

Agree0 Disagree0

1st response agree with you I get what the or poster is trying to say but it's just not that simple in practicality

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with the first reply, he was talking for over 12 months! There might have been a clause like that, but he wouldn't sign!

Agree0 Disagree0

Risky business that... and agree with all the posts.... the matter of the fact is (sadly) someone is willing to stump up the cash now.... in 6months the tables may have turned... we'll still be in the championship and no-one might want him then.... lets just hope if he goes the money is well re-invested.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 14:44:49
Leeds should try bring in simeon Jackson from norwich. We've clearly got good connections with Norwich. So we should get him on loan, got goals in him! Just what we need LRS

Believable22 Unbelievable8

Playing 1st team for them at moment so no chance of that happening. More likeley we would look at Oli Johnson just been released by them and used to play not too long ago for Nostell Miners Welfare - which is more our level at the moment

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes came of the bench about 8 times only started a few, so a think its a posibility. We dont need people who have been released by norwich what goods that? LRS

Agree0 Disagree0

You have more chance of bringing Billy Bremner back. if you know who he was

Agree0 Disagree0

Whats point in saying that dont be clever if u dnt no what your talking about?! Am sure simeon jackson signed a two year contract ( which hes into his second year now) with a further year optional. So to me with holt, morrison, pilkington top forwards at norwich plus vaughan and whilbraham sure there could be a chance LRS

Agree0 Disagree0

Great post hes a quick exciting goalscorer would love to sign him.

Agree0 Disagree0

And He's been offered a further 3 year contract, so dream on Leeds S===M

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 14:44:03
On an MLS site it says Robbie Rogers has got his work permit? Source below:

www.mlssoccer.com/news/article/2012/01/18/american-exports-rogers-secures-uk-work-permit

Believable14 Unbelievable1

I did try and put this on earlier and has been two update since. Cheers Ed. {Ed007's Note - I'm just tidying up a bit to keep the sites moving mate.}

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 12:12:23
Is there any truth with us being linked with George Boyd, i for one would like him to sign just cant see us stumping up the cash to get him.

Believable13 Unbelievable12

Hes availalbe on a free after terminating his contract

Agree0 Disagree0

He's a free transfer, so it'd only be a signing on fee which won't be a major amount.

Agree0 Disagree0

He definitely wouldn't be free! Peterborough rejected a 3m bid for him from Celtic in 2009. I expect he'd cost around 1.5m now. Not worth it in my eyes.

Agree0 Disagree0

Kris boyd's contract terminated, did'nt know george boyd had terminated his.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think you mean Kris Boyd. George Boyd is still a peterborough player.

Agree0 Disagree0

So his he going to play for nowt then
MONEY the main reason todays footballers
sign for the only way to stop this is for one or two clubs like united /city going
t..ts up

Agree0 Disagree0

Were a selling club so SG and Bates will probably not be interested or even know anything about it

Not back to business can we get rid of McCormack/Clayton/ white and maybe if we work quickly Snoddy
Now that's more like Leeds.
Signings come on hehehehehe you have to be jocking

Agree0 Disagree0

George Boyd? The Peterborough midfielder? Or do we mean Kris Boyd, the striker who recently became available after leaving his club?

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would they Terminate his contact, he's quality ...

Agree0 Disagree0

I think people have got confused with kris boyd and george boyd

Agree0 Disagree0

We have got more chance of signing boy george!

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont need him, got to many wingers with rodgers now

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 11:02:54
I'm a Leeds fan living in the midlands and have read in the local paper(Birmingham evening mail) that Alex McLeish has confirmed that Leeds have been in contact with Villa about taking Delph on loan and that the deal looks likely

Believable22 Unbelievable4

We should be looking after are best players and keeping them at the club before we get loan players in that will cost the a fortune in wage contributions really pissed off with whats happening at our club the people in charge lack real ambition, i think i'll start to keep my money in my pocket from now on

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm the original poster and am in hysterics - I post what is a FACT and 3 people have hit the disagree button - do you disagree that I read it,or the paper doesn't exist or Mcleish didn't say it - it's even on BBC teletext - I'm didn't say it was going to happen just the FACT it was there - hilarious

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 10:49:48
Heard today that Delph is almost a cert to join for the season. Lichaj however might be a 'no go' because of villa wanting to implement a 24hr call back clause. Pattison will sign. Also both George Boyd & Sammy Clingan heavily linked again.

Believable21 Unbelievable6

My god Sammy Clingan again,i am sure his agent must post his name on this site at least 3 times a wk,he ain't that good,also its kriss boyd we are linked with not George,and kriss boyd is crap,he can hardly run for starters,makes naylor look like usain bolt {Ed013's Note - I have checked everywhere mate and cant find anything about those 2. I will do some digging at Elland Road on sat}

Agree0 Disagree0

I have a cousin that works in the backrooms of Man city he told me that Carlos Tevez will be joining on loan for the rest of the season,mancini doesnt want him playing in the prem league and doesnt want to sell him till the summer. {Ed013's Note - Messi on his way also}

Believable28 Unbelievable30

HA HA.. i had an uncle who once played for Red Star Belgrade........

Agree0 Disagree0

What are you taking, it must be great in your world

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed with ^^^^ can you give me directions to get to your world it sounds nice

Agree0 Disagree0

You have more chance of signing Carlos the
Jackel

Agree0 Disagree0

The Red Star Belgrade ref is from a Billy Bragg song "Sexuality". No idea who wrote about Tevez - not me, my comment was to say "as if Tevez would come to ER"

Agree0 Disagree0

More like your cousin works in the bathrooms at man city coz he's full of s**t

Agree0 Disagree0

My aunties cats dogs best friend is the shoe shiners best friend at elland road apparantly kaka, messi and TEVEZ are all coming in a deal worth a bag of chips with added extras of mushy peas and curry sauce after they each play ten games... GROW UP MATE STOP GARBAGE ON THIS SITE, yes its a rumours site but try and souce some real rumours mate

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 03:33:59
Just heard from a very good source Leeds will be signing boom Newcastle Jets youngster Marko Jesic,he is exciting talent and can find the net.

Believable11 Unbelievable17

Easy to find the net, its usually attached to those 3 white posts. I would be more concerned with whether he could put the ball in it or not

Agree0 Disagree0

Found it 6 times in 36 games, he could be the new Paynter...................

Agree0 Disagree0

He's had to seperate knee reconstructions. no thanks, we already have parker as a injury liability, no need to add to it.

Agree0 Disagree0

19 Jan 2012 01:33:46
Leeds to sign highly rated striker Erick Torres

Believable4 Unbelievable19

Source ? or R

Thank god -- for a second I thought you mean't that we were signing Fernando - we'd never score then!!
