luck has it that roque's father/agent is a leeds fan and thats why he mentioned Leeds Utd in his statement..
Aswell as other championship clubs now being alerted his intentions were to get OUR attention.... thats why grayson has been in contact with city regarding the situation trying to thrash out a deal that would allow roque to come to us on loan for the SEASON, with city paying the majority of his wages. However if leeds get promoted there would be an agreement to sign him up on a perm for an agreed fee which would get him off citys books for good, however there stalling on the actual fee if leeds did go up.. Bates has more issues at present with financing the plans for next years build.

this is true and if agreed should be completed no later than wed.

Max Gradel will not be signing a new contract... I was talking to his agent at the Farsley game who was also representing Luz and the other German kid. I was speaking to him for most of the second half and I asked if max was going to stay and he said it was down to £££. Look what happened to others who were in the last year of contract who wanted more money. Beckford, Johnson, Kilkenny.. Etc etc.. If you don't believe me that is fine but I swear it is true...

Believable11 Unbelievable8

Look what happened with becchio he was the only one good enough to stay

Agree0 Disagree0

It's not like we don't have nunez and snoddy if we didn't it would be much more worrying he will sign though if he doesn't go im sure.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hardly think any agent worth his salt would be discussing a clients contract with a knobhead in the crowd, grow up dude

Agree0 Disagree0

After Upton Park, I really hope he commits to us :D

Agree0 Disagree0

Are you for real? his agent was chatting to you at a game? and divulged confidential information? dont talk out of your ar*e idiot

Agree0 Disagree0

Does anyone know why we let felix luz go? didnt see him play but he got a few goal. one trick pony i guess?

chorley white

Agree0 Disagree0

You believe what you want.. He didn't give me any 'confidential' information... He gave me a clue .. Down to simple as

Agree0 Disagree0

Online Superstore, New Leeds Away Shirt, Preset names and numbers and prices for the backs......WATT 18.
why have they included this? will he be rejoining? Looks likeley

Believable8 Unbelievable6

This is strange and number 18 isnt taken yet eva so its iver a big mistake or he coming back.i thought he was alright but then again i didnt c him week in week out so what does every 1 else think bad or good?

Agree0 Disagree0

Possible that it's still there from last season? The number 18 may not have been updated because no one occupies it

Agree0 Disagree0

I saw a bit of him last season, the kids got potential. A very smart footballing brain, definitely one for the future

Agree0 Disagree0

Watt is useless and an awful finisher,i hope he stays in london

Agree0 Disagree0

No, just the normal incompetance and lack of interest in the shop.

Agree0 Disagree0

I would like to see Watt come to us and develop as a player. He has potential

Agree0 Disagree0

Believable0 Unbelievable22

Why would snodgrass go to you and we dont need a striker now we have keogh and plus we would nots sell snod for less than 8 million or pay 2 million for mcgoldrick

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would snodgrass join the scabs? robin hood Yorkshire legend robbing off of neighbouring nottingham

Agree0 Disagree0

Jog on u clown u got more chance if signing Paul gascoigne

Agree0 Disagree0

If he went anywhere it would be to a top flight club

paul jewell has come out and said we did an 11th hour u-turn on loaning priskin, why would we do this if we need strengthening??? has someone else agreed terms with us??? we wouldnt enquire about a player we didnt want so simon cant say that. hmmmmmm, i aint gonna say roque cos i think as much as it would be fantastic i cant see it happening but we may have sealed a deal for someone else

Believable6 Unbelievable13

Jewell has said it was earlier this week, might have been before we signed Keogh on loan.

Agree0 Disagree0

Do you not think the Keogh deal gives SG better options with Becks back in 4 weeks and Nunez and Gradel all able to play in Priskins role...
forgot to mention barn door's phantom thigh strain also, so Priskin wouldn't be needed anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

Possibly forssell? has he impressed enough?

still have all my fingers crossed for roque tho.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh ye forgot bout forsell, hes been handed extra trial to asses his fitness so maybe him and that would be a perm deal which is better......wish it was roque tho :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Santa cruz would be a dream signing, come on ken make me proud

Agree0 Disagree0

We pulled out of the deal when we found out keogh was avalible.

Agree0 Disagree0

Do we really care what Paul Jewell and Ipswich think? Tractor in-breds can sulk all they want.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bet paul jewell wish he'd of signed lonergan instead of stockdale 11 goals in 2 games

Agree0 Disagree0

Paul jewell has always had a dig at leeds he lived in ilkley for a while and was sniffing around the job before blackwell.. If priskin ain't good enough for them he certainly ain't goodenough for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

Watched Ipswich at Peterborough today and what i could see of things we are better off without any of their players they were appalling.,,Hope they play that badly against us next week 3 points for shaw and get our goal difference up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Jewell shouldve come and said thanks leeds for helping me out and not taking Priskin. Ive spent loads of money on players not as good as him and desparatley need him because all my others players have bad backs from bending down to pick the ball out from the net 12x in last two games. Stockdale or lonergan

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparently there was a stumbling block, Priskin actually wanted paying with money and not brass buttons, so

Agree0 Disagree0

Question to all Leeds it'd fans does anyone at Chelsea remember when ken bates saved and bought them for a £1. Answer no, you know why because he saved them like he did us now let's stop slagging of a man that cleared our dent and now we are the only club apart from Brighton to make a profit. We own nothing from oblivion to the promised land and debt free , third biggest city? Kne city club supper Leeds

Believable15 Unbelievable11

Obviously you've been out on the pop toneet big lad.

Agree0 Disagree0

You are an idiot, Bates didn't clear our debt Administration did All bates did was delay Admin for 2 seasons take us down to L1 & cause the minus 15 points due to his dodgy dealings during the buy back process.

Get your fact right before opening you mouth

Agree0 Disagree0

No debts but club don't own stadium or training ground. Only way forward is for a rich owner to make bates an offer he can't refuse otherwise it will be championship mid-table all the way.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope for your sake you was drunk when you sent this in

Agree0 Disagree0

KB cleared out dent...? can you tell KB ive got a dent on the O/S rear of my 51 plate volvo that needs looking at...... cheers

Agree0 Disagree0

To be a little more precise, he left chelsea with a huge debt burden of around 80m. In July 2003 he sold the club to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. maybe he a serial debtor and will do the same at leeds, o.k if he finds us a billionaire. the word that really dicribes him is a (carpetbagger) look it up

Agree0 Disagree0

Ken Bates saved us? As LUFC Supporter Trust says:

Ken Bates did not save us from dropping to the lowest point in the League in the entire history of the club.

Ken Bates did not save us from administration and he didn't save us from not being able to obtain a CVA.

Ken Bates did not save us from being kicked out of the Football Association.

Ken Bates did not save us from having to buy our way back into the Football League by means of a 15 point negotiated deduction. Was it the biggest deduction in history that we were not saved from?

Ken Bates did not save us from not owning Elland Road.

Ken Bates did not save us from not owning Thorp Arch.

Ken Bates did not save us from selling some of our most promising players without any obvious investment of the proceeds into the playing squad.

Ken Bates did not save us from MPs calling for investigations into the financial dealings at our club.

Ken Bates did not save us from falling out with the BBC, newspapers, various other football reporters and commentators.

Ken Bates did not save us from making legal threats against supporters groups who used the name of the club.

Ken Bates did not save us from a prolonged period outside of the Premiership.

Ken Bates did not save us from years of not knowing who owned the club.

So please tell me what he saved us from?

Geeman

Agree0 Disagree0

Whilst Ken might not be the most popular man at Leeds he put money in and bought out Krasner and co, the club has no debt now and it is still in his interest to get back it PL. Look how Svens and Jewels spending has done so far, and its is frustrating not seeing big money spent. However football is different now and prudence is important. Our squad is stronger now and the window is still open, demonstrating about Ken will achieve nothing unless those guys form a syndicate and win the lottery and then offer him an exit. Support the team or write to Ridsdale and Leighton and wish them back. I know what I am doing - having my weekend spoiled when we lose and having a great week when we win - thats football MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates hes said under oath (Jersey court I believe) that he has not put a penny into Leeds United

Agree0 Disagree0

LEEDS FAN RIDSDALE OR CRAFTY COCKNEY BATES? THANKS TO KEN WE ARE IN A MUCH BETTER POSITION NOW THAN WE HAVE BEEN FOR A LONG TIME... 3 CHEERS FOR KEN HIP HIP HOORAAAAY.....

Agree0 Disagree0

The three cheers for ken closet chelsea fan really needs a good slapping

Agree0 Disagree0

I would be interested to see you slap me ya little cock, ken bates bought Leeds utd with debts inherited thoughtless spending and wages no other club would pay. Fact another fact is he bought Chelsea for a pound fact they are now challenging got honours year out fact. Ridsdale got us into debt ken bates had no choice but to take in into administration be clear out debts it's not even administration it's called a CVA fact.

Questionare we debt free ???? Are we the third biggest city if you don't include greater Manchester ??

Are we a one city club ???

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't care about Ken bates... So long as Leeds still exist is all that matters :@)

Agree0 Disagree0

1. supper or super Leeds?
2. bates has just bought us - an unknown person saved us. bates has then put off every perspective buyer since

Agree0 Disagree0

Ken Bates is a crafty cockney c**t, we all know this. He left Chelsea in at least as much debt as we were in. Had he not been bailed out by Abramovic Chelsea would have done a Leeds no doubt at all in my mind. What I'll grant Uncle Ken is that when Chelsea were in the same position as Leeds he said all his players were for sale, however if the valuation of said players was not met stick your offers. He's a buisnessman with only his own financial interest at heart. We shall never prosper under him, but will become a more attractive proposition for any possible new owners. In short he is not the saviour of Leeds United and I'm sick to the back teeth of hearing that he is. No real fan wants us to spend stupid money on players that we can't afford, as that would just put us back to square one. All we want is for some improvements to be made. Last season we over acheived with an average squad, imagine what could be done if Master Bates were to splash a little cash, not on fees but wages. Ok here's where I may be talking nonsense but take Bowyer for example, if he's gone to Ipswich I can't imagine his wages to be extortionate and in my opinion is a fare better player than Brown.

Agree0 Disagree0

KEN BATES SAVED LEEDS UTD...DID HE SELL ER?NO DID HE SELL TA? NO WE ARE A WELL RUN CLUB GOING PLACES DEBT FREE...HIP HIP HOOOORAY

Agree0 Disagree0

If you call the a squad average, that scored more goals than anyone else tok
took arsenal to a replay average apart from the defence needs sorting we will be fine

Agree0 Disagree0

Nobody else could have saved us as Bates did a "deal" with most of our creditors that they would only get so much money per owed if he was allowed to buy/be chairman of the club, if they didn't agree he'd have let Leeds fold and they'd have got nothing

Agree0 Disagree0

Give it a couple more years and we'll have the rich owners we've wanted since 2003

Agree0 Disagree0
