Le Fondre ? rumor or knowledge ? tell us your source friend

Believable1 Unbelievable9

Any post would be the subject of a hammering due to all the critics on here. Although i am a leeds fan myself i have been informed of someone in the back office rotherham staff.a colleague regularly posts on here so thought i'd let you guys know.
Would be fairly sad to post something not true on this website.

Agree0 Disagree0

Le Fondre is a very poor player, not good enough for L1 never mind the Championship

Agree0 Disagree0

I knew it wouldn't be long before jokers on here were linking us to Joey Barton. Come on Guys as much as I would love a player like Barton its not gonna happen. He will go to one of the big 5 clubs. Probably Arsenal, Spurs ot Scum.

Believable6 Unbelievable8

Hes not that good, im thinking lower premiership/ high championship sides

Agree0 Disagree0

I think you'll find Spurs are favourite to sign him ahead of Arsenal. Also Old Bacon Face did say a couple of weeks ago that he was interested in taking him to Mold Trafford

Agree0 Disagree0

Forced out of newcastle because he criticised their lack of transfer activity/ambition so im sure he'll come to big spending leeds. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

He said he WOULDN'T sign for any CHAMPIONSHIP team.......can you stop now?

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds to sign Joey Barton , but wage demands are a problem

Believable10 Unbelievable12

What a ridiculous thing to say - there's no way the self proclaimed "best midfielder in the country" would drop down to the championship

Agree0 Disagree0

Come off it you won't have smithy back but you'd like Joey gobby ex jailbird Barton? hes committed real crimes ;) too many Prem teams interested anyway ....

Agree0 Disagree0

Yer Liverpool need some more cm ahaa would be nice tho

Agree0 Disagree0

"wage demands are a problem " no sh*t sherlock

Agree0 Disagree0

Joey Barton working for the minimum wage? Leeds don't need prima donnas, LU need hard working, honest players who play for each other and care for the club they play for.
Barton always has and always will consider himself and only himself. I pity the club that takes him on and I hope no-one does.

Agree0 Disagree0

'Leeds want to sign Barton but wages are a problem' ......Waaaaaa U utter dork. Go back to watchin Sponge Bob cus u have no discussion value on this site apart from being a total muppet

Agree0 Disagree0

Oi leave sponge bob out of this he's done nothing wrong....Harry MOT

Leeds to sign local youth player George parry from a local non league side. Could be new beckford. Scored 35 goals in 40 games last season

Believable10 Unbelievable17

01 Aug 2011 14:36:07
Chuffed Howson is captain...need him to sign a new contract though a long with Gradel. Im sure Howson's contracts up at the end of this season...

Believable19 Unbelievable4

There around 6 or 7 players with contracts up at the end of the season. howson, gradel, sam and clayton being the ones that stand out, i think the others are tom lees, aidy white and brown but hes only ever gunna get a rolling contract now at his age

Agree0 Disagree0

If you ask me Howson won't want to leave the club as he came through the academy and was brought up less than five miles away, he'll only go unless he has to

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2011 14:30:39
No number 17 in squad - could this mean a return for Smith??? OR perhaps we are just light on numbers

Believable5 Unbelievable15

I flipping wish but Geordie friends seem to think he's sitting tight til end of his contract and lufc lot say no show yesterday killed a move. Myself, I have no idea

Agree0 Disagree0

How many times he isn't coming We can't pay him the amount of money he wants and yes if we have officially approached that could surely be the only reason he isn't coming to the club he "loves". The kop made their feelings clear on this matter yesterday think it went like this "Alan smith is a w**ker is a w**ker"

Agree0 Disagree0

Alan Smit will NOT be returning Get it into your f**king head.

Agree0 Disagree0

Try reading the full comment and pick up on the sense of irony in the statement.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just FYI, I was at the game and in the kop. I can tell you in no uncertain terms that no more than 10% were singing that song, and they were all in one area. The song was not taken up by ANYBODY outside that small zone.

Agree0 Disagree0

Pathetic response The regular, away attending fans are the ones against Smith return, the loyal fans opinions should stand head and shoulder above the ones that turned up for one match in the hope of Smith turning up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just FYI, I was at the game and in the kop. I can tell you in no uncertain terms that no more than 10% were singing that song, and they were all in one area. The song was not taken up by ANYBODY outside that small zone.

I wanted to read the story "how about going up" in the yep online but the page seems to be unavailable(tried a couple of times at different times). Anyone read it, was there something said that should not have been perhaps?

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Try looking for the "HOW ABOUT NOT GOING UP PAGE".

Agree0 Disagree0

Just Howson saying he is pleased to be captain and hopefully he will get us promoted

Agree0 Disagree0

No its just a standard im pleased to be captain story mate.

Lichji wont join as Nunez has 20

Believable6 Unbelievable14

Shut up, im stopping going on this site its full of idiots half the time little girls

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't blame him. I would refuse to play for a club who wouldn't give me the squad number I wanted ( Ed. Where do you find these numpties ) {Ed045's Note - They find us.. lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Change number it is just an number we need you and lichji can be 20 next year

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm not going to live in my house anymore cos it's No 21 and I wanted 20 so I'm going to sleep in the park - plank

Bates said they were 4 new players coming in, nearly a month ago
had brown and lonergan in
There seems to be a lot of rubbish coming out Elland Road

news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/14049277.stm {Ed045's Note - There is still time.

Believable8 Unbelievable6

Thats all comes out of leeds since bates took over

Agree0 Disagree0

Remember January - loads of false hope and empty of promises ..... ditto

Agree0 Disagree0

Give SG and KB time then Judge, Iknow it's late but transfer window still open and premier league sides to name 24man squad soon so we'll Pick up the young talent, Lets have hope and get behind the Boys Like we used too LUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

We didnt pick up "the young talent" last season so why do you think it will be any different this this time around. We dont seem able or prepared to compete in the transfer market at the moment, i really hope that changes. All well and good unbeaten in pre season friendlies, our results in the championship over the coming months are what counts, i look at our defence and central midfield and still not convinced we are good enough or strong enough in those areas to compete across a 9 month season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates haters a fact you have missed - we are doing really, really well under Bates and have had a brilliant pre-season. Message over.

Agree0 Disagree0

torres and paynter score in same week something fishy going on

SG-signing:
lichaj-loan

thats all

Believable9 Unbelievable10

For them two to score in the same week means a) they are going to find Shergar this week and b) my lotto numbers are due to come up

Young Chelsea Left-Back Patrick Van-Aanholt will join on a season long loan in next 48 hours

Believable10 Unbelievable14

He played for Chelsea against Villa in the Asia cup in Hong Kong. Looked very comfortable (pace, tackles, passing, positional awareness)

Agree0 Disagree0

I imagine he might not be loaned out this season, could feature in chelseas 1st team plans

Agree0 Disagree0

There is absolutely no chance of Chelsea lending us any of their players. I dont think KB is on Roman's Cmas card list

Agree0 Disagree0

Very highly rated too i would take him if it happened.

Agree0 Disagree0

I would imagine our relationship with Chelsea was nt the best ...

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a prayer of getting anyone from Chelski at all.. Abamovich hates Bates more that some Leeds fans

Agree0 Disagree0

Whether Chelsea would or not is irrelevant. I can't see KB eating humble pie and going to them and saying "Please Mr Abramovich can we borrow one of your players?" can you?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2011 12:07:40
Who is gonna wear the no6 shirt? Number is still vacant on OS.

Believable6 Unbelievable1

Young Chelsea Left-Back Patrick Van-Aanholt will join on a season long loan in next 48 hours

Maybe him?

Agree0 Disagree0

Presumably one of these 'rather good midfielders' that Papa Smurf is on about.

Agree0 Disagree0

Love the first reply post, they have even got you saying the famous "48 hours" phrase haha

Agree0 Disagree0

Possibly if we get clingan then maybe him cos he wears no. 6 don't he?

Agree0 Disagree0

Our Sammy wears 4 for Coventry Would love him to sign i think hes a belter

Agree0 Disagree0

O'Dea is a possibility from Celtic- Lichaj and Andrews on season long loans- Larry is lucky Clayton & Nunez look to have stepped up their game, cause Brown & Andrews does not equal Kilkenny & Johnson- also, did anyone else think Lonergan didn't look interested v. Newcastle?

The guy who wrote this, do u watch Leeds? Or football for that matter, you would take brown and Andrews over killa and johnno anyday, killa was a poor mans David batty who was only good when he sat in the hole with all the play infront of him, brown is twice the player he is and Andrews is a solid no nonsense player who can only add quality to the squad. Have a bit of faith man

Believable12 Unbelievable2

Brown is 34 and looked crap on Saturday I was there so yes I do "watch" Leeds Andrews would be a decent signing but if you knew anything about football you would admit that Leeds with Kilkenny in the side were a better footballing team and Johnson had a decent season- take off the blinkers and be objective- both were under contract and not loanees and both were under 25 Get a life....

Agree0 Disagree0

I watch leeds week in and week out and killa was invariably the player who made the difference to the team. as for a poor mans batty, they are 2 completely different players; batty was a hard midfielder but could only pass sideways whereas killa was the type of player who was always looking for the ball and looking to set up attacks. Anyone who attended regularly will know this and you can guarantee that when he comes back to ER with Bristol he will run the game and people will wonder why we let him go.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree totally - both should have received contract extensions and by signing a full back / centre half and a holding player in midfield we woud be nailed on to go up this season

Agree0 Disagree0

Batty could only pass side ways? Did you ever see him play for Blackburn? He knocked it about like Glen Hoddle He was told to win the ball and give it to Gary Mac, who was usually stood at the side of him, hence a side ways pass.

Agree0 Disagree0

I am a season ticket holder at Leeds and I you look at the games we got murdered in were the games that killa didn't play in. It doesn't help the team when SG insists on playing a lone striker that has no pace and can't hold a Ball up to save his life. We need two holding midfield players and a striker with pace and the ability to hold the ball up and take the pressure off the rest of the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

How can you knock bechio? haha we have speed allover and he gets the goals as for holding it up, we don't play like that if you ever went to a game you would know snoddy and max feed the ball to him where hes in great positions get gone hater

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2011 11:49:33
does anyone else think we could be getting another defender in as the no.6 shirt has been left unamed?

Believable9 Unbelievable2

The no. 6 shirt is Kisnorbos, but hes got no 3. So what lacks is a left back that becomes the no 6 shirt

Agree0 Disagree0

Kisnorbo's always has no.3 naylor was no.6.....dont really get what you mean

Agree0 Disagree0

Its just a number...and we don't have to have a full compliment of the number 1-11

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2011 11:45:49
Whats the Situation with Mendy and Bodor? is SG gonna make a decision? i think Mendy looked good in all his games and we should definately sign him up not sure about Bodor.
Thoughts?

Believable8 Unbelievable3

Definitely get mendy in, however, bodor not really sure may be a good squad player, bring him on to make an impact later on in games?

Agree0 Disagree0

Bring bodor on to make an impact? he's a left back not a striker going on what i saw sat and from what others have said e.g. thom kirwin i don't think i would chance bodor but definitely give mendy at least a year contract or 6 months similar to what we did with nunez.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2011 11:14:27
Andy Lonergan leeds number 1

Believable17 Unbelievable3

01 Aug 2011 11:10:27
I see John Spector is set to have a medical at Birmingham. Duncan Castles on Twitter had said that we were very interested. Thats a shame if we missed out as he is a versatile, athletic, disciplined player who keeps it tidy and works hard. Can play across the back four or in midfield if necessary.

Believable if you want him

Unbelievable if you don't want him

Believable14 Unbelievable12

01 Aug 2011 11:05:00
can we just stop messing about and sign Mendy up

Believable12 Unbelievable4

01 Aug 2011 11:00:00
howson named captain..lonergan no.1..big billy still no.9..no number yet

Believable10 Unbelievable1

Question is why has grella been given a squad number when he was virtually told he'd not be playing for the club again? also i see bessone has a shirt number and thought he was on his way out too?

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2011 10:57:00
O'Dea is a possibility from Celtic- Lichaj and Andrews on season long loans- Larry is lucky Clayton & Nunez look to have stepped up their game, cause Brown & Andrews does not equal Kilkenny & Johnson- also, did anyone else think Lonergan didn't look interested v. Newcastle?

Believable4 Unbelievable3

Lonergan didn't look interested? Don't be so pathetic, the lad looked nervous if anything, but thats perfectly understandable on his debut.

Agree0 Disagree0

Brown and Andrews> Kilkenny and Johnson any day what drugs are you on?

Agree0 Disagree0

Jesus, some people on here talk s****. Lonergan pulled of some cracking saves yday and was solid enough all the way through, as was Brown. A Brown and, if its true, Keith Andrews midfield would be a vast improvement on Johnson/Kilkenny, MB and KA are both top players at this level.

Agree0 Disagree0

Brown looked much better than kilkenny tackling further up the pitch etc. and lonergan pulled off two greats saves and almost stopped the second goal. All we really need is depth in our squad. Howson was top class lets hope he keeps it up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Brown and andrews does not equal kilkenny and johnson - are you kidding. kilkenny has got nothing goopd about his game apart from he might pick a pass one out of ten attempts and johnson apart from giving ball away half of time is just thick when it comes to football - two players who think they are better than they are

Agree0 Disagree0

Wat a utter Muppet you are pal....get a grip..

Agree0 Disagree0

What planet are you on? Lonergan made a couple of great saves and I'd take Brown over Kilkenny anyday, at least he can tackle

Agree0 Disagree0

How does that make Grayson lucky? Surely that makes him a good managed to see potential such as Clayton and Nunez?? Idiot

Agree0 Disagree0

Andrews is a decent player aged 30- Brown is 34- no matter what you say Kilkenny in the team made Leeds better and Johnson had a good season- and we had them both on contract- I also think Kasper had a decent season and the way he was shipped out was disgraceful- we will have the same scenario next season when Max and Nunez walk on frees- I am sure you will all be thrilled when we sign another pair of 30+ individuals on loan then- grow up lads

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2011 10:10:36
Leeds looking to sign Keith Andrews on a season-long loan from Blackburn Rovers

Would be quality IMO

Believable10 Unbelievable4

Agree, a good midfielder. A busy player who isn't bad on the ball. Not a prolific scorer, but i think he could get a few more at Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

I posted here asking for opinions of him, now all the rumours are coming around saying we will get him. Don't post pure crap please.

Agree0 Disagree0

01 Aug 2011 09:36:25
anyone know whats happened to the two good signing bates said would happen this weekend or is this another of bates bull sh*t promises see i havnt got a problem with bates it just he talks leeds up but then dont deliver and thats begining to piss me off and lots of other leeds fans

Believable14 Unbelievable4

Have you been to any of the pre season friendlys? If you had you would know leeds have a very good squad and dont need an influx of rubbish squad players, keep the faith and stop f**king moaning

Agree0 Disagree0

Again...he said he was talikng to the players agents OVER THE WEEKEND not that there would be signings Would it kill you to have a little faith

Agree0 Disagree0

Stop talking bollacks pal if u think the squds good enougth youll soon find out ur very wrong u sad little man

Agree0 Disagree0

Go away, Bates haters we are doing great without you and your person chants

Agree0 Disagree0
