Leeds considering a loan move for West Ham striker Nicky Maynard

Believable60 Unbelievable18

Your Kidding !!!!
Not heard that one ?

Agree0 Disagree0

3 goals in 16 games + barely played so would take a while to get match fit and at his sharpest, maybe too late by the time he starts bagging goals again

Was watching scottish football at wkend and saw the goals from Johnny russell for dundee utd. He looked pretty good from what saw of him and his 2nd goal was a screamer. heard we were linked with him during pre-season.

Anyone no if we still interested in him? Would give us a bit of skill on the wing which we seem to be missing and would supply some good balls to the strikers

Looks a decent signing but not sure how much they'd want for him unfortunately

Agree0 Disagree0

He would be very good for us. As for being linked with him still I think it depends on available funds.

Was at ER Sunday lunch in Billys bar poleon was player there to represent leeds. Went on ER tour very nice. Mcelland showed us around. He talked lots about Bates budgets and the work already done by Warnock.The way he was talking gavecthe impression Bates was not leaving anytime soon. He spoke about snodgrass transfer but nothing about investment/ takeover.
He seemed happy to chat on most subjects dont know if he was doing the party line or not

Believable8 Unbelievable30

And how would he know about the takeover when even NW doesnt know,itll happen in its own good time,just chill and support the boys FFS.

Agree0 Disagree0

Mcelland is one of the good guys

Is akos buszaky on trial?

Believable41 Unbelievable23

I really hope so, but having already managed him I wouldn't think he would need a trial.
Hopefully he is checking his fitness and signing him up

Agree2 Disagree0

Why what is his crime?

Agree0 Disagree0

We could do with him against Blackpool with Green out

Believable49 Unbelievable23

Not having a go at the spelling - but i think we would all have a pint if we got maynard lol

More chance of getting Enoch showumni back !!

This is the week. Takeover all done by Friday.

Believable40 Unbelievable66

Again, we have been hearing these story's since June ? Takeover or investment it said investment on os ...

Agree0 Disagree0

It would have been done by now. Bates is digging his heels in big time. He doesn't want to sell, to cut a long story short, and has been hanging on for someone to allow him to remain Chairman.

I full expect the whole thing to have collapsed this week - and I'm an optimist. Seriously, its bad news, it isn't happening and I am GUTTED.

Agree0 Disagree1

The takeover will be done this week, now this Friday, before the game... let's be honest u hav no source we've been reading these rumours for months now it's getting pathetic just relax and wait, stop trying to crank up tension amongst us and wait for an announcement cos none of us know when it will happen

Agree1 Disagree0

Here we go again then.....

Agree0 Disagree0

Belive it when i see it

this should be on the joke of the day page

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh no , not that old chestnut again ! Let's just live with what we have got & if it comes - it comes

Agree0 Disagree0

Another clairvoyant! How many times have we heard this. I'd bet my season ticket that this dosen't happen this side of christmas.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks for posting Mr Bates!

Agree0 Disagree0

Why is this week different to the last 10, the takeover has been supposedly finalised every week for the last 2/3 months

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope so but these things take time. It has to be a takeover not investmebt due to the length of time it is taking.But will believe it when and if its happens.sharky lufc

Agree0 Disagree0

Said it before and I'll say it again Bates won't sell unless he is allowed to stay on as Chairman or unless he gets a ridiculously large amount of money as a personal pay off ! He has no interest in Leeds United, its fans or football in general for that matter. He is one greedy barsteward who only has his own personal interests at heart !

Agree0 Disagree0

Is it a takeover or an investment

Agree0 Disagree0

What happened to Phil Hays prediction to the effect it was going to be an interesting week. I'm not sure whether we'll ever be taken over, bored with it now. Actually enjoyed the football, really glad to see committed and clever players with the white shirt on. Paddy looks very assured, Ruldoph popped up in all the right places, Diouf looked class to me and McCormack looked to be fizzing. Like I've said before, key signing was Warnock...very impressed!

Agree0 Disagree0

Whatever.........heard it all before mate. Believe it if and when it's on the OS!

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree with second poster the collpase of talks will be announced this week

Agree0 Disagree0

"Is it a takeover or an investment"

No - it's an old chestnut......

leeds united signed diouf on 1 year contract

Believable67 Unbelievable24

Good, from what ive seen he has played well and hold the ball up. as soon as he hets the winning goal the rest of the Boo's will stop. hes here so we may as well get behind him

Agree1 Disagree0

Lets hope so, he was great against Wolves. Very sensible play and a great touch.
Looks like we might need a winger too with Green out for a few weeks
