Did anyone notice simon Grayson outside Huddersfield clubshop on ssn earlier? Alex smithies here we go

Believable5 Unbelievable22

The LMA meetings were held there, most of the country's managers were probab there.

Agree0 Disagree0

They tend not to sell their players in the club shop, just the replica jerseys I heard SG was on eBay earlier today, you never know.......

Or Gary Roberts as he just turned down a 2year contract extentsion

Agree0 Disagree0

BREAKING NEWS Stockdale not even on Fulham bench tonight. Make of it what u will.

Believable11 Unbelievable8

They are playing Crusaders at home and are 3 - 1 up after the first leg. Hardly needs to put out his strongest side and that includes the bench

Agree0 Disagree0

Must be signing for Swansea then. Can't be coming to us. We don't sign players, we just speculate...

Agree0 Disagree0

Stockdale going to Ipswich on loan - source Martin Jol

Agree0 Disagree0

When has Jol said this? They would probably pay more money to fulham though

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds to sign Scott loach from Watford also Alan smith deal 99% done

Believable7 Unbelievable35

I wish this was true but while ken bates is at the helm expect more players along the line of micheal brown

Agree0 Disagree0

Alan Smith has been officially released as a free agent according to SSN but I havent seen this info myself, just repeating what I've heard.......no idea what that means in terms of lufc however.......

Agree0 Disagree0

Well mr smith has allegedly been officially let go on a free by newcastle today according to SSN..come on Smithy lets have you back lad sod the doubters

Agree0 Disagree0

Mr Smith is Leeds through and through as far as I am concerned and whilst I will get absolute abuse from plenty of people on here, I am willing to put my neck on the line and say he'll be back..just a hunch lol Newcastle have apparently released him on a free according to SSN but we'll see

Agree0 Disagree0

So when he doesn't sign for "the club he loves" what's the excuse you smith worshippers are going to use then? Could it be "bates offered wages too small"? When will you realise we don't need an injury prone money grabbing player who the only reason for signing him is for nostalgic purposes at our club?

Agree0 Disagree0

Sod the doubters- You mean the FANS, the people that have kept leeds going whilst we got relegated twice? Right decent fan you are......

Agree0 Disagree0

A hunch, more like a desperate desire. It pathetic leeds fans are so fickle, dont you have any pride left?

Agree0 Disagree0

They'll see no wrong in smith being greedy, they'll blame it on Bates. They dont chosse to see the reality of situation I dont want Smith back, nothing to do with his transfer he just isnt whats required for us to progress long-term.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds thru and thru lol
was then when he refused to return in favour of Scum Reserves?

Agree0 Disagree0

LEEDS UNITED..... just been told that we have had a seemingly rediculously low bid of 300,000 bid rejected for rotherham uniteds adam le fongre, a mate of mine said he knows this for definate due to working for rotherham uniteds promotional team, he said talk of this deal has been ongoing for a few days and he was told to holt all photography involving le fondre for the time being in a rotherham united shirt because a second bid is imminent, expected to be double the first to make rotherham even consider selling.... not usually a beliver in rumours but im putting 2 + 2 together, becchio hamstring, somma cruciate ligament, paynter struggling for goals, max proposed move to the prem, leaving a lot of pressure on mc'cormack, does seem like we are in need of some much needed help in that department? if this is true then i personally think it would be a gamble worth the chance. marching on together {Ed032's Note - ive heard its carlisle

Believable9 Unbelievable15

Funny I seen the whole le fondre offer from an undisclosed club and i thought i know i will make up a rumour that the club was leeds and the offer was 400k. But then I thought why bother. But obiviously you didn't.

Agree0 Disagree0

Doubt it SG said he not looking for striker even tho becchio and somma injured, he says we got nunez, mcormack, paynter and gradel can play there

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 16:37:34
Leeds united to make Skegness town an offer for Ryan Webster a young striker, would bea good signing

Believable8 Unbelievable25

Ken is preparing an offer of last years yellow away kit and some blue seats removed from the East Stand to make way for the new Executive boxes. Seems a good swap and good enough to seal the deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tell him to stay in Skeggy and stick to been a red coat at Butlins.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hey Ryan...no one from Leeds united actually reads this so there is no point in touting your name about...by the way I played against you last season and you're poor

Agree0 Disagree0

Tom Cruise to go on trial at Leeds. (youngster realiesd by Arsenal )

Believable28 Unbelievable9

What Source are you getting this from please?

Agree0 Disagree0

Your mission today is to sign for Leeds and be outstanding over the forthcoming season ( Mission Impossible ?? )

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates would be up for that. just think of the revenue on the back of proper marketing and publicity..... pre season tour of holywood next year then lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ken Bates will self-destruct in 10 seconds..........10....9.......8....... LOL

Agree0 Disagree0

Anyone else wondering what the hell "realiesd" means?

Agree0 Disagree0

Can play in all weather especially good in rain.......man {Ed032's Note - he was born on the fourth of july and intends on being top gun at leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

This isn't really big news more of a minority report

Agree0 Disagree0

Ive heard about this aswell apparently hes a good young talent. {Ed032's Note - left back i think

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 14:56:16
We are to use money from sale of kasper, to secure the services of Aruna Dindane on 2 year deal, should bea good partner for becchio when he's fully fit.

The Leeds Utd OS is down due to the explosion of transfer activity Ken Bates was telling us about.

Believable4 Unbelievable17

If there was a "like" button i would press it

Robbie Keane to sign on loan

Believable10 Unbelievable42

Have you eaten a KFC coated in something suspect? Whatever Trevor Some people

Agree0 Disagree0

No way, if we can't afford the likes of smith on a free or get him to take a pay cut no chance with Keane

Agree0 Disagree0

I think you'll find that's Robbie Keane asked for a loan by Simon Grayson so that he can sign some players. Seen as Bates won't put his hand in his pocket.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would like to believe this and I honestly think if the opportunity arose and he had no others he would ad he genuinely never wanted to leave Leeds.......perhaps he could be our "Bellamy"

We can dream.....

Leeds aren't we....

Agree0 Disagree0

If Robbie Keane joins on loan, I'll eat my new Leeds home shirt

Agree0 Disagree0

You should eat it anyway, it's garbage Damn you Macron, why can't we ever have adidas

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 13:30:18
Lets bring in Quinn, Montgomery and Michael johnson for the new season new keeper needed stockdale or kirkland and a proven goalscorer i think these players would give us fans the lift we need also with all the work going on at the ground really think its only a matter of time before Mr Bates sells the club

Believable21 Unbelievable14

Yes, it would make sense for Ken to spend lots of money doing up the ground and then leave Do us a favour, and go away taking the rest of the Bates haters with you.

Agree0 Disagree0

I can not see us signing Quinn and monty plus I don't see these too Any better than we have got s.g said he wonts to bring in 5 players 3 we have on trail so 1 more would be a keeper so that's 4 then 5th could be m.Johnson but to be honest think it will be a striker or defender.

Agree0 Disagree0

Shut up you peck and live in real world nobodys hating just fact doing the ground up makes good business sense for bates ya tit

Agree0 Disagree0

If you don't think Quinn and Monty are not better than we've you you don't no anything about football because isiah osbourne is not in there class niether is j liioyd samuel just ask cardiff fans about him

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry guys but I don't think uncle Ken would be spending all that money on the East stand if he was going to sell.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do people that support Bates believe they are true fans haha you all make me laugh because you support the fact that Bates sells our players and doesnt reinvest any of it in the squad. Get off your pedestal.

Agree0 Disagree0

You are a complete imbecile - go away and pretend to 'support' somebody else

Agree0 Disagree0

At this point in time I would be glad if he signed someone from Garforth Town

Agree0 Disagree0

Isn't Montgomery a name that will haunt you from 1973?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 13:20:02
Told you all there'd be a black kit
Macron wanted you all to buy the blue kits believing they'd be the away shirts for the season just so you would buy the new ones when they came out

MOT

Believable12 Unbelievable2

I guess the black kit denounces the morbid sign that we are destined for relegation

Agree0 Disagree0

Im not even buying the home shirt till ken puts his hand in his pocket and buys someone.

Agree0 Disagree0

The problem for me with the Black kit is the awful looking badge You can barely tell its a Leeds crest in the pictures on the website.

I never buy the current seasons kit anyway as i cant afford the 40, I tend to buy last seasons when its for a tenner in the sale MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I have just spent 59.00 on a new blue shirt with name and numbers and badges, only now to find out there is now a black kit. why wasnt i informed i want my money back, as uncle ken doesnt use it towards the team. Gj

Agree0 Disagree0

We did get told that there would be c new away kit . Also the blue one isn't new, just new sponsor on it lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats not true cos if u go on the club shop it says the blue kit is the second away kit ..

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 13:19:28
Grayson Looking at the 3 trialists at the sheff game and will then decide on potential contract deals:
Hope we sign J'lloyd plenty of premiership experience but all 3 trialists looked positive on the ball :)

Believable22 Unbelievable3

21 Jul 2011 13:19:00
Leeds are set to sign an unknown 19yr old from Bradford named Ashley Greenhough

Believable7 Unbelievable19

Listen if we are going to sign some unknown kid they are going to be on trial with us first, so unless he's 6, 3 and black and thats hardly the case because he is from bradford. {Ed015's Note - Leeds boss Simon Grayson included Osbourne, and two other trailists in Jlloyd Samuel and Alexandre Mendy, a French winger, in the Whites' friendly at Rochdale in midweek. That is the only players who are on trial at the minute}

Agree0 Disagree0

How can he be unknown when you know his name and where he is from?

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes a wonderkid, the answer to our attacking problems, started training with Leeds this morning, he will play against Sheff Wed

Agree0 Disagree0

Well obviously hes not unknown to me but he is to you

Agree0 Disagree0

I've heard he is rubbish, he should stick to his day job at McDonald's the greasy spotty teenager

Agree0 Disagree0

I've seen this lad he's been dubbed the next tomas brolin should be good then

Agree0 Disagree0

He quit his job at mcdonalds 2 years ago, hes not greasy or spotty, his old club dubbed him the next john charles

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 13:15:19
I think the new away kit is great As long as it's got THE badge. And in 12 months time it has premiership on the sleeve I coulsnt care less if it was yellow, black or Joseph's technicolor dream coat We are Leeds

Believable23 Unbelievable4

Pinstripes always result in relegation prepare for league one, get to ladbrokes now.

Agree0 Disagree0

I like the black, but the badge shouldnt have been altered, it looks absolute s**te

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 12:51:34
grayson said that the trialists, samuel, osbourne and mendy will feature in some part of the sheffield wednesday game and will find out if they have won contracts with us. SSN.

Believable10 Unbelievable3

21 Jul 2011 12:32:23
As we are, the new away kit is black and yellow.
Click believable if you like it, unbelievable if you don't.
MOT

Believable44 Unbelievable28

Just seen the black strip on Leeds website and it looks well, come on ye blacks haha.

Agree0 Disagree0

Uhhuh u know what is it black and yellow black and yellow

Agree0 Disagree0

I like the kit gives us a new look and a mean look now let's get behind are team no matter who we have signd or not singed we are Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

It looked more of that illuminous green colour than yellow to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

Love the black, but the badge is tinpot. KB ripping of Chelsea again zzz

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 12:25:51
Whoever said Kenny Miller was coming, Well your wrong as he is expected to sign for Cardiff today according to all the newspapers today...a done deal.

U didnt think we were going to buy a player did you...haha

Believable4 Unbelievable15

"according to the newspapers"........that does NOT make it fact my friend

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll tell you something, he's one hell of a country and western singer though.

NOEL HUNT WONT GO TO WEST HAM...WOULD LOVE HIM AT LEEDS...

Believable13 Unbelievable12

Max Gradel to leave to the highest bidder as he hasnt signed a new contract. So expext the recent players on trial to sign and a few others. Grayson keeps going on about waiting for the right players but the best ones have all been snapped up. Bowyer & Woodgate as mentioned by Mr Greedy Bates. Fans are starting to loose the respect of the the manager and chairman who keep saying we are the biggest club outside the prem NO WERE NOT ANYMORE

Believable19 Unbelievable18

Max has not signed a new contract cause we have not offerd him one yet. Don't no why but we should act quick. And as for players comeing in give it chance they is thousands of free agents who are top class or do the job here at Leeds. We all no Leeds by now they take the time and then shock us. J.Llyod samual and Osborne are good players

Agree0 Disagree0

Max Gradel has already said that when he is offered a new contract he'll sign it because he likes playing at Leeds and is happy here.

Agree0 Disagree0

J Lloyd Samuel in the England team played whole career in premiership very excellent fall back as proved against us last season for the bluebirds. Osbourne young and hood in the tackle. Last season we had two midfielders who could not tackle a granny that's why we conceded so many goals this season we have brown again premiership experience along with Osborne whom was playing when villa were fifth in the premiership better than those two mugs they have left. Add Nunez and mendy to our attacking options and we will see.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm not losing faith We've won 3 in 3 in our pre-season so far, and hardly conceded.

Sure we have injury worries, but pre-season is the time for the fringe players to show their worth, and they will.

Wouldn't want B&W anyway, both are shadows of their former selves. J Lloyd would be a gread signing, and Max aint going anywhere.

A league ball hasn't even been kicked and already people are on the team's backs. It makes no wonder people dont come here. Low wages and over the top expectations

Agree0 Disagree0

Good point, these two are better players than Johnson & Kilkenny and will make us much stronger and hard to beat

Agree0 Disagree0

Why have ALL the good players gone? And as mentioned max hasn't been offered a new detail but has already said he will sign one. You are a pathetic fan that leeds could do with out. Stop your BS or F-Off

Agree0 Disagree0

We haven't signed, samuel, osbourne or mendy yet, cos wages will always be a problem, hope we do sign them, but at the moment leeds as a club are not showing alot of ambition, but will wait n see,

Agree0 Disagree0

It is be the manager who decides the players who will be signed, not the fans. smith/woodgate weren't right for the club in the eyes of the manager and he is paid to do the job, so don't start wittering about the chairman- or would you rather pay absorbitant, unaffordable wages and end up back in division 1

Agree0 Disagree0

If we're not the biggest club outside of the prem why do we have highest average attendance and i think like 7 teams had their highest gates when we played them. you clearly no nothing.

Agree0 Disagree0

Go away you imbecile - I have lots of faith in Ken and SG, who are doing a fantastic job in turning our club around if you haven't noticed, but I have no faith in negative idiots like you

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates and Grayson are the best things that have happened to this club in the past few years, Bates saving us twice and SG slowly building up a team. SG always brings the best out in 'forgotten' or unknown players like Gradel and Somma so just have faith. I know its hard for some idiots but just for once live a little and dont winge

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2011 09:12:54
have it on very Good Authority that Leeds are to Sign Carl Dickinson Before August 6th.

I'd rather we sign noone tehn him

Believable9 Unbelievable14

Yeah, he's only about 50 times better than what we have at the moment. Lets not sign anyone half decent.

Agree0 Disagree0

If this is the same lad we had on loan from Stoke a couple of years back he looked quality. Much better than what we have already.

Agree0 Disagree0

On good authority ? Come on... how many times do we see this pointless comment. U think he's coming to Leeds and somone down the pub told you. 5th rate unconvincing trollop

Agree0 Disagree0

What you on about.. He was excellent when he played for us...

I think you're thinking of Liam Dickinson who was the useless guy up front... 10 to 2 feet...

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont tell us your a builder working on the east stand and you overheard a meeting or better still they invited you to the meeting?

Agree0 Disagree0

Wigan to make a 4million bid for snoddy

Source The Sun.

Im not the same person who posted the wade elliot thing, I just went on the site to see about the wade story could not find it but stumbled on the snoddy story. Anyway we put an 8mill price on his head right so they can do one

Believable4 Unbelievable22

I did say my source was the Sun newspaper and not the website.
