Warnock to bring in clint hill on a emergency loan deal from qpr

Believable25 Unbelievable10

No chance, he is an absolute idiot, he tried to break Snoddys legs last season at Elland Road. God i hope not, Aidy White is a lot better anyway.

leeds are signing free agent danny Webber.

Believable22 Unbelievable11

Our Strikers are great, why would we need another version of paynter

Agree0 Disagree0

Been training with Huddersfield Town since jan and they didn't take option to sign him. He's clubless(does that say something...............)

Agree0 Disagree0

Daily Mail is reporting that free agent Danny Webber is about to become NW's first signing at ER.

Believable18 Unbelievable8

Not an obvious signing but NW knows him well. I guess we need cover for when Ross gets banned for butting low life Dioff. He would accept a short term contract and it hasn't taken Neil long to assess the potency of Forsell and Paynter

I've heard a pretty strong rumour that Bates will give Warnock £20million to spend this summer. He never wanted Grayson to have the cash he's made from transfer, TV, gates etc. as he didn't trust him. He will also tie down Snodgrass, Lees and Clayton on long-term deals.

Early targets include Taarbt, James McArthur and Ashley Williams.

Believable12 Unbelievable82

He will back him but not to this extent. We are a championship club. The only way I could see this amount of money being spent was if we got promoted this season and we were trying to secure Premiership status next season

Agree0 Disagree0

When you say 20 million you do mean rupee's so i make that about 250,000 so in bates eyes you could get 3 top players for that oh but you have to factor in their wages !

Agree0 Disagree0

Whats your favourite song?bet its Aint no pleasing you,must be a ball acher being as cynical as you,were on a roll now,why try to put a dampener on it,go join SG at Hudds,theyve plenty of money.

Agree0 Disagree0

Typical isn't it as soon as there's no way of posting rubbish about who the new manager will be, they get bored and decide to start posting rubbish about transfers again. Is there no way of organising posts into pages of genuine rumours and a page for people with nothing better to do making sh1t up. {Ed013's Note - It is a rumours page for rumours, who is to say what is a real rumour or what is not. However, there is already a wish list page for common sense issues to go in}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha ha ha least that made me laugh, what kind of dream world do you live lol or what kind of substance are you on and can I have some ha ha

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates has spent money in the past, some of you have short memories Healy 2m Hulse 2.5m the whole bloody team that got us to the playoff final against watford. You all forget where we were under ridsdale era spending money like water and that on players we had already at the club. Let's not forget the player he bought at Chelsea, lampard, Zola, gullit, Desailly, vialli, lebouef to name but a few.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not as short a memory as you kid... Healy cost 650,000 and was bought before ken Bates took over. Hulse cost 1.1 M

Agree0 Disagree0

How is not trusting Grayson anything to do with players not signing contracts yet? should have tied them down already!

appointing Warnock will be good for Leeds, but the negative things Bates has done far outweigh the positive. His general attitude towards fans is abysmal - little things like the ridiculous decision to fail to agree a deal with the BBC for radio rights, so now we have to put up with his insufferable rantings on his own radio channel.

Agree0 Disagree0

. love the comment about the ruppees,as if pappa smurf will hand out 20 million he's gonna buy Elland Rd back 1st and hire a hit man to shoot sg..JOKE (I HOPE)..........LOL

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates attitude towards the fans is abysmal? Only if you mean what he really should do is take a flame thrower to the chavs in the North stand who like nothing better than causing mayhem after the match {Ed013's Note - I am a season ticket holder in the North stand and believe you me, I am no chav. I also don't agree with the Bates out chants in there, but I am afraid the only way to shut them up is for the team to produce the goods on the pitch}

Agree0 Disagree0

Snap Ed013 - I'm also a season ticket holder in the North stand & my take on the negative chants has always been "support the team or f**k off home".

As for boycotting games .... been going since Don Revie was appointed manager through all "our up's & down's" so not stopping now (might be 'cos I'm a tight Dalesman as well lol)

Leeds TID {Ed013's Note - I bet there are a lot more who share our views in the North stand. I understand peoples frustrations, but everyone must stick together and back the team. Ken Bates is not going anywhere no matter how many "Bates Out" chants there are}

Agree0 Disagree0

Heard a rumour terry maclane ex chelsea and west ham will join the coaching staff at leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets start backing those leeds players on the pitch and quit the Bates Out campaign inside ER.......the players want to hear us getting behind them from the 1st minute to the last minute of fergie time!!!!! We are all Leeds through thick and thin!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates is only worth 20mill altogether doubt this c'mon leedsss MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

The reason we have not spent much over the last few years is down to not wanting to get promoted until next year so we dont have to pay back all the money to the tax man in the region of 25million, i believe we will spend heavy next summer and then push for promotion

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love this to be true but look at the facts - the club doesn't have that kind of cash, Bates is worth about 30m (and that's not just cash he has sat in a bank account) - its not going to happen unless some billionaire invests and splashes the cash. When Taraabt was being touted at 12m+ to PSG, suggesting he'd drop a league is just unrealistic

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates 20 millions he)d have a f*king heart attack do hope so BATES STILL OUT

Agree0 Disagree0

Larry to be Huddersfield Town manager.to be announced at 6.30.

Believable28 Unbelievable5

Good luck Simon, I hope it works out well for you.

Agree0 Disagree0

As soon as clark was sacked i new grayson would get the job . hes had 2 full seasons in league 1 and got promoted 2 times .

Agree0 Disagree0

Nice to see grayson straight back into employment hopefully he will get the backing he needs could be a great manager if backed both finacially and given belif in his own ability

Agree0 Disagree0

Owen Hargreaves apparently is a target for Nw.

Believable10 Unbelievable43

I would be very happy with that but can't see it happening. More likely the return of Sean Derry

Agree0 Disagree0

Owen Hargreaves is on mega wages at Man-City!!! Still we can dream mot :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Owen Hargreaves is made of glass. Unless we want to put him on the mantlepiece we should steer clear. {Ed020's Note - They call him mr glass. he'd never last in the championship}

Agree0 Disagree0

Instead of the stupid plans for a boycott of the Southampton home game, lets try and get 30,000 in Elland Road for NW 1st home league game. Then lets revenge the 3-1 defeat to the saints....and march on into the play-offs!! Come on now lets stick together for the last 14 games and see where these boys can get us! We'd all written the season off...so it will be a great bonus if we can make play-offs, lets get right behind both the new manager and players again. MOT

Believable48 Unbelievable10

Love this post, we have all had a moan and grumble in recent months, time to get bahind the lads now and make it happen, lets pack elland road out every week again and show this league why we are the best fans in the world...

Agree0 Disagree0

No one dislikes Bates more than me but he is the sort of man who won't bow to protests he will just dig his heels in more - it's now time to show that we are Leeds UNITED , give Warnock a chance get behind the team , love him or hate him he is now our manager and does have a proven record of getting teams up - we all want us to be back where we belong in the prem so let's show that we are the best fans in the league and not just a bunch of whingers - yes, we are entitled to have our say but to harm the team we are supposed to love makes no sense - it's time to be what we should be - WE ARE LEEDS - let's act like it

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm going to watch it on Sky, but NOT because of the 'Bates out', its so i can afford to see more matches this year aswell + (It costs 75 a month for sky in my house so might aswell get use out of it)

Agree0 Disagree0

Once again well timed by Bates. First home match for NW is the same game fans planned a boycott. Clever man. I'm not a huge fan of NW but as said above, he's now our manager so lets get behind him!

Also the only way we're going to get rid of Bates is if we get to the Prem so he can sell at a huge profit and say "look what a success I made". I think we need to stop this negative crap and get behind the club. Eventually Bates he will go away or pass away.

Agree0 Disagree0

Last week I was down and wasn't going, now I'm up and will be there singing my heart out.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's a no-brainer. Love him/hate him it doesn't matter, KB is going nowhere. Time to unite behind the team. We fans can get them over the line but only if we're there in our hordes make ER an absolute wall of noise and an uncomfortable place to come for all our opponents. Bring it on. It's a 14 game season!

Agree0 Disagree0

What a difference a week makes".........it's fantastic to see all the positive stuff on here, when I heard NW at been appointed Saturday morning And I was buzzing wasn't at half time but second half crowd brilliant and got the result just what we need for the last 14 games no negativity just get behind the manager and the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

Look on the bright side we could support Doncaster Rovers lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Stand and Sing for Leeds United coz we are the greatest in the Land !!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Nice to see the positivity back amongst the fans! long may it continue!
