I've just been watching the SK Brann match and at the final whistle the camera didn't leave Rodolph Austin, it really looked like he was saying farewell to the fans .... he was blowing kisses, clapping them and stopped to sign some autographs before leaving the pitch. I'm absolutely desperate for us to sign him so hopefully there will be good news on that front this week, if not the takeover MOT

Yellow Card To Speed Up Austin Move
posted July 22, 2012 /

Yesterday ba.no reported that Leeds want Austin to come to Leeds on Monday, after the Brann-Aalesund match today. But with another match between Monday and the Norwegian August transfer window, Brann were reluctant to agree.

Rodolph Austin begun the match today in unusual fashion, striking from Bradley Johnson distances (with Bradley Johnson results) and diving into tackles recklessly, at one point failing to complete the tackle which allowed an attacking play to build. The former can be put to eagerness to impress his English fans who have taken to watching Brann while they wait for the deal to go through. The latter was because Austin was on the verge of a one match ban, trigged by his next yellow. A ban which would not carry over to English football.

After about half an hour Austin was finally given a yellow for a two-footed lunge from behind. Austin’s yellow will solve the disagreement on timing between Leeds and Brann.

Agree0 Disagree0

Brann won 2-1 against Aaelsund and Austin scored. Time to make the move to Leeds now then...

Just seen John fitz 15 and he said berbatov was signing for 3.5m- fingers crossed. I also heard it of another guy who is cousin with aidy white. {Ed013's Note - Poor John!!!}

Believable14 Unbelievable19

What an person. Im sure he will pick us over ac milan who have approached him

Agree0 Disagree0

I think we have more chance of signing Fred west than berbatov. Stay away from John Fitz mate he will and clearly has infected you with bull sh** disease!!

What would happen to the luciano becheio song? also he might because he could of liked the croud aganst them last and never gets in the first team

Agree0 Disagree0

Wouldn't want Berbatov anyway. I'd much rather have Luciano - he cost less & scores more goals. :)

Agree0 Disagree0

RVP to sign tomorrow after Bill Gates decides the Soccer Championship is for him and buys LUFC for a fee to be confirmed then aliens arrive to confirm this happening ..... Suppose someones got to make us laugh eh John don't worry mate keep these wonderful posts up and you'll be a celeb by next year

Wrote on here a while back as Paul Connelly is a weekly customer in my fish shop in garforth. He has been in tonight (got special and chips with curry sauce by the way ). He reckons snoddy not injured we are just waiting for Norwich to up bid to 3million and gone. Says takeover is nearly done and won't tell me anything else. Also said notts county enquirerd about him, we should accept, good customer, dump player

Not rubbish mate completely true Paul's bought fish and chips off me last year I am not john Fitz 15!

Why would paul connelly know anything about the takeover he'll be in the dark just as much as us. stop with the B/S. ROBBO MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Its not b/s mate he is still training with us. Has told me a lot of stuff. Trust me on this connelly knows more about takeover than you robbo.
POG LUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

"Not rubbish mate completely true Paul's bought fish and chips off me last year I am not john Fitz 15!"
I thought you said he was a weekly customer.
Weekly customer, then bought chips off me last year!
At least don't contradict yourself if you want anybody to believe your unrealistic rumour mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

I kinda believe this, I know he lives near garforth. So could be true.

Agree0 Disagree0

I used to work in a chippy in Tadcaster up until 4 years ago and Fabian Delph used to come in occasionally. He never had chips with his order though. Not exactly a footballers diet and definately not weekly!

Agree0 Disagree0

Could be true. I expect Connelly is quite annoyed with Leeds and might s*** stir on snodgrass. He could know more than us on the takeover. Personally I think snodgrass will stay. I hope Connelly does leave. It is the biggest area of improvement we need. Lees it not a RB IMHO and should play C B. we need a good RB . Need Austin and a RB ASAP.

Agree0 Disagree0

Do you think we are so gullible?…We don't fall for things hook, line and sinker (That's a fish joke)

Agree0 Disagree0

I very much doubt he knows anything about the takeover. Is he not transfer listed? If so then why would a player who is likely to leave the club be privvy to information regarding the takeover? I suspect if any player is in the know then it would be Snodgrass due to NW wanting him to sign a new contract and therefore, perhaps, trying to reassure him over the future of the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

Whats pog , pile of garbage, thats what this rumour is

Agree0 Disagree0

What takeover? There isn’t one. I’ve heard the investors pulled out a week last Friday due to ownership issues on pretty much everything at Leeds from the car park to the stadium. Everything is registered to different companies (up to about 15 I heard). The due diligence period is over and Bates has apparently granted an extended period to try and get them back into talks.

Agree0 Disagree0

Connelly told me the same he also mentioned snoddy could be going out on loan to Aston villa

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't care, I just wanna know two things, when do I get my free fish and chips and secondly....when is this takeover happening ed? I think I read just about every thread going! However I did here a rumour that John Fitz was signing for Leeds !

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2012 18:26:01
Snodgrass to Norwich, fee around £2.3m, now this is just a rumour from a mate back home, where the players tend to live, but it's possible (rumour again) that the deal will be done in a couple of weeks time.

Austin due to sign in around 10 days

Just wish we could get a final say on this alleged takeover!

Morison is a dangerous striker -would defo take; but would have thought has a future as a lower Prem player, and with Norwich likely to find this year tougher than last, find it less than likely that they will sell. Chapel A

Does anybody have an update on the Rodolph Austin situation? I thought we were going back in with an improved offer, that and with the newspaper reports suggesting a decision from SK Brann is imminent.

Believable8 Unbelievable3

My mate works at the golf club where they check in tomorrow night, I have already asked him to keep me updated with the people there. Listening to the interviews from him it looks like he may join us next week. I hope to see him at the Bodmin game Wednesday. Anyone else coming?

Agree0 Disagree0

The move looks like it will be completed start of next week, as SK Brann want him to play in a crucial game for them this weekend.

Agree0 Disagree0

Brann have an important game tomorrow (sunday), they are holding off accepting the new offer until this match has been played. Expect news next wee. Let's hope he doesn't get injured!

Agree0 Disagree0

Expect to see him here next week.
NW didn't expect any problems the only stumbling block was Brann wanting him to play this weekend but he will be at LUFC soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

Rocky santa cruise still looking for a north west club.....worth a punt if wages could be agreed......is he out of contraqct

Agree0 Disagree0

According to norwegian paper Bergensavisen, Austin will travel to Leeds after the match sunday, and the deal is expected to be finalized.

Does anyone have an update on anything?

4 million and snoddy is gone.he has asked to go he feels he has showed Leeds loyalty by staying last year when he could have pushed though a deal.Norwich as yet not willing to pay as they no off snoddy s desire to play in prem.The best thing that can happen is for other teams to enter the biding as Norwich think they can push us into a corner.myself I hope this deal dose not run and run.But I have been told no way will he stay for another year not even 6 months .if if we get the money we want I think we should go for Burke or Tom ince Blackpools last year with parachute payment.They may sell

Believable7 Unbelievable13

There is no way a club will play 4m for a player with 1 year left on his contract. Norwich can wait until January and pick him up for next to nothing

Agree0 Disagree0

I would bite there hand off for 4million, no chanc e of that though.

In my opinion I believe he is almost certain to leave, probably for around 2.5m which is still decent business for a player who is quite clearly not going to renew his contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

If they take a chance on waiting till January other clubs may be able to offer him a better deal knowing his fee will be cheaper and not sure why they wont pay 4 mill when they wanted 6 for Holt who is in his 30"s and was in the same position as Snoddy contract wise

Agree0 Disagree0

Well that's the price we have put on him,The person who told me this is friends with a ex Leeds phisio.

Agree0 Disagree0

No way will norwich pay that and tom ince wont go leeds if he was cheaper than snod noriwch would go for him as tom ince is younger, quicker and far better than snods, hope your right but really, really cant see it myself

Agree0 Disagree0

Also he hasnt asked to go. we all know he is waiting for the club to show its commitment to promotion. Something that wont happen until the take over happens, if it happens.

Snodgrass leaving is up to Robert Snodgrass. He can stay a season and walk and go to the Premiership. He will have signed a contract and honoured it if he plays another season with Leeds.

Its Leeds who darent gamble on him going for free when we dont go up.

At the moment (and I hope it will change soon) Snodgrass is the only person with ambition to play in the Premiership. Leeds United havent shown any. Good luck to him.

Now c'mon Leeds! Get your frigging act together. Remember 89/90 the Leeds steam roller? That roar before kick off that made the hairs on your neck stand up? Thats what we want again.

MOT - Fawksey

Agree0 Disagree0

How can someone show loyalty when he doesn't honour his contract. That's not showing loyalty. Not getting at you first poster, getting at snodgrass. JD

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a rumour its a lie

Agree0 Disagree0

Absolute rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

If he wanted to go wouldn't he hand in a transfer request ? I can't see him going just yet.


DJM

Agree0 Disagree0

Just more total bull$h1t, Snoddy has NOT asked to go anywhere so stop keep coming on this site and spreading this crap around.

Norwich could bid 10 million and the answer will still be the same - no!

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not worth 4 million, he play's well when it suits him and a lot of time he shows he can't be bothered. If this take over does happen which i hope it will because its killing me, then let snoddy sit in the reserves till his contract is up. because if we get any funds it wont take much to find a replacement better than him. I was gutted when lost Gradel, as i thought he worked harder and chased every ball and closed defenders down pretty quickly. As for Snoddy i think he is easy replaced. Mot and in Warnock we Trust !

Agree0 Disagree0

Your talking rubbish, he hasnt asked to go

Agree0 Disagree0

It is more like 2.5 millin.

Agree0 Disagree0

Robert Snodgrass is worth more to us than we would get for selling him on. Look at his record for goals and assists last season when the team was crap. We need him more than we need the 2.5m we are likely to get for him. We cannot carry on selling our best players and especially for peanuts, not if we want to get promoted.
Frisky1

Agree0 Disagree0

An ex Leeds Physio.....really go back to PES

Agree0 Disagree0

I never said that we are going to sign Tom ince.I said I hope we go after him with Blackpool parachute payment ending this year.And I agree ince has more pace more potential to be a top player.But watt i said about snoddy is right

Agree0 Disagree0

Where do people get this Norwich wanted 6mil for Holt, that was a bid mentioned from West ham, Norwich reply was Not for SALE. Norwich fans were doing the same as you and wanting the situation sorted one way or the other come pre season, McMally said where could you go and pay 6mil to buy another 15 goal scorer?/? you can't. we would have to spend 3 times that amout

Hi, got update. Last update i stated takeover wud be nearer aug 1st but was slated for negitivity. I have now heard takeover could not be signed till transfer window closes. Ive been told bates and buyers still bit apart on final takeover amount. This is due to bates say value of club he has named is based on the players walnock will bring in and leeds having a promotion challenging squad whilst buyers obviously are valuing the squad as it is now. bates is still funding the recent purchases to up the value. New owners havent put any money in yet. Bates wants to Sell snodgrass so 2-3 players can be brought in to as ive said raise asset value of squad hence the signing up of white. My guess is leeds will bring in fee players to build a strong side to challenge till xmas with new buyers spendig big in january! Will let yous know if get update! Thanks eds

Believable6 Unbelievable23

Surely if you sell players then use the money generated from that to buy others, the over all value of the squad stays the same? Just higher quantity of lower value players?

Agree0 Disagree0

That's complete rubbish. Due dilligence would only commence once a deal had been agreed in principle, it's then up to the prospective buyers to go though the books to ensure that they are getting exactly what they have agreed to buy without any hidden financial black holes. It's exactly like getting a house surveyed, the deal is agreed between buyer and seller, the mortgage is in place but nothing further can happen until the survey is completed to make sure it doesn't fall down the week after you pay for it. If the seller then decides to put in a luxury kitchen half way through the process then tough, completely down to him.

Agree0 Disagree0

That sounds a bit odd. If due diligence is being carried out then the basic price would have already been agreed. The due diligence process on the buyers part would be to see if there were any skeletons in the cupboard. Sorry to say but I find this story totally unbelievable.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi, appreciate the comments but its quite the opposite that once due dilligence is complete the final value of deal is finalised. Example is lets say a club was to offer 5mill for snod and 5mill for white now hes signed contract. Thats 10mill of value added to club since the time of initial due deligence granted! at the origanal time few months ago when interest made, the value of white wud have been none as out contract. can i just add i doubt wud get 5mill for them players its just an example of how value can fluctuate.

Agree0 Disagree0

Another nobody claiming to be the one in the know talking a load of absolute bo***x.
This guy is trying his best to sound like he has legitimate knowledge but I'm afraid there are too many academic pitfalls to fool any intelligent thinking supporter.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Stop posting rubbish pal, Mick Jones himself said its gonna be an exciting 7 to 10 days in the transfer market so that blows your fairy story out of the water. Jackanory Jackanory Jackanory.

Agree0 Disagree0

This is ken bates we are talking about here so anything is possible,one thing is for sure this isnt a straight forward takeover and i feel bates is a stubborn old man who could blow this for us unless hes not carefull,markymafia

Agree0 Disagree0

You might be more believable if you were literate. Who would give this sort of information to their paper boy?

Agree0 Disagree0

What are you talking about?

If due dilligence has been granted that means the price has been agreed.

yet another bulls**tter claiming to be in the know!

Agree0 Disagree0

Although White was out of contract we would have been given compensation if he signed for someone else as he is a young player, so he would have had a value. It could be argued that now he has signed a new contract, that would increase his value.
If as you suggest we sold Snodgrass for 5m, that would decrease the asset value, not increase it, as he was a 5m asset, unless the money remains in the bank account, then there would be no change in the value of the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

To the OP I understand what your trying to say, however when a business is in negotiations for takeover etc, it values all its assets to the maximum, therefore all these situations are taking into account.

When due diligence commenced White was still under contract therefore his value would be in the final price, as is Snodgrass.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yawn! Rubbish, balderdash, twaddle. I am certain that Kenny Babes is trying (as he always has done) to get the best deal for Leeds United.

I was thinking another statue at Leeds now seems appropriate. A bronze of Ken with his arms around a couple of young smiling Leeds fans as he holds them safe within his coat tails.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets face it you know nothing more than anyone else, so just stop posting this crap....

Agree0 Disagree0

Complete rubbish, you cant value a club on players a manager may or may not bring in, deal is agreed, will be finalised soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

How many times, Ken Bates does not fund anything. LUFC is a business with incomings and outgoings and any purchase of players is dependant upon cash available within the business and improved by any player sales. KB is not putting his hand in his pocket JH

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jul 2012 12:31:42
you should know that the takeover has in fact, gone full circle. The due diligence process went through not last week BUT THE WEEK BEFORE, and whether to sell the club is back in ken bates' hands. Our worst nightmare has come true .... Bates is stalling. Source: KPMG audit data access request.

Believable13 Unbelievable13

You clearly know nothing about mergers and acquisitions so why post such dross on here. If you haven't a clue say nothing.
The buyers will not get the data from kpmg and be able to say yes we'll buy within an hour. Due diligence is the process to vet the data they have received, validate the data with the owners to ensure no skeletons in the closet and to then be able to base a bid that represents the worth (including goodwill and future earnings).
That's not an over night exercise unless you're mike Ashley and end up paying 120mln in "ghost" debts not identified in due diligence.
Given kens ability to tell the truth and his transparency on financials it should be expected that due diligence for Leeds will take that bit longer. It's going through but the new owners clearly don't want to be left paying for Ken's debts further down the line through complacency or lack of professionalism.

Looking forward to the t/o and the new season. We will be challenging for sure.

What a start to the day, just found out about Aidy, feels like a new singing! Get in! Pace is such a huge part of the game. But gonna be good to see him grow as a player in other areas in next 3 yrs.

NickW, MOT

Believable15 Unbelievable5

Aidy needs a really good coach to show him how to deliver the final ball,get out there and practice aidy we all behind you get some assists to your name. neil thinks hes a winger not a left back wonder what every one view is on this

Agree0 Disagree0

I didn't miss many games last season and thought he was average at best and lost the ball while in possession to often,his best asset is his pace , with a decent pre season and a bit of guidance from Neil he could turn out to be a decent player, to be given a 3 year deal Warnock must see some potential in him .

Answer to ur question is no it aint true. Ur source is a dud! Signed new contract

Agree0 Disagree0

Learn to write!

Agree0 Disagree0

Snodgrass hasn't signed a new contract, it is Aidy White who has signed the contract. I've not even heard that Southampton are in the running to sign him. The only club that I understand to have bid is Norwich, as has been widely reported.

Agree0 Disagree0

I have seen that Aston Villa maybe interested but Southampton, not heard that before

Agree0 Disagree0

Why did you have to give him you're number if he had already messaged you? strange, its like trying to work out the mystery prize at the end of 3-2-1 with ted rogers!

Would anyone take this as a championship promotion challenging team?
Kenny

RB-Peltier CB-Pearce CB-Drury/Cranie LB-White

RW-Snodgrass CM-Green CM-Austin LW-Rogers

ST-Becchio Varney/Johnny Russell?

I think McCormack will go, which is no big loss but if andy gray is the replacement then god save us.
If we get these targets then we'll defoinitely have a solid, strong squad but i think we need a better striker and i'd personally take diouf instead of varney.

If snoddy goes then i could see david templeton signing

BURLEYwhite

Believable9 Unbelievable10

Isn't Johnny Russell a midfielder?
and Drury a left back

Agree0 Disagree0

Drury at cb? And i very much doubt that Varney will be played at ST also.

TeejLUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

McCormack is one of the best strikers in the division and would be a big loss.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tbh NO!!

mid table at best.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would have lee at cb to be fair ....... Kenny peltier Pearce lees drury

Agree0 Disagree0

Unfortunatly I can see many goals with that strike force :-(

Agree0 Disagree0

Suspect the idea of looking at Andy Gray is probably a short, or pay as you play contract until we know the outcome of Davide Somma's injury and fitness. Don't forget that Neil Warnock has stated that Mick Jones loves Somma so at some point he will be given his opportunity

David Templeton would be a good signing whether Snoddy stays or goes.

Agree0 Disagree0

Drury is a left back. aidy white will be on the bench. varney plays on the wing.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes Gray is old but he still looked a hell of a better player all round and infront of goal that Ross did on friday i love leeds but some fans are starting to wind me up now why not get gray in as a squad player on a free? just because he is old doesnt mean he has suddenly lost his footballing ability. Whatever happens in the striker department id sign him up even just as a squad player, he does cost anything and hes Leeds through and through.

Hi, clarify, anyone as in a person, or anyone as in a club?
As first reply poster says, if Snodgrass goes to Bolton, then maybe yes on both counts, (Warnock/Leeds).
If Snodgrass goes to Norwich then maybe no.

That is far as I can go as I do not know enough about world football, but a good enough question to keep a few anoraks off the site while they research.

lets have peoples thoughts who thinks this take over is just a smoke screen so bates can hang on to the club for 1 more year or dos any 1 think the take over is done an they haven't told any 1 so clubs dont put prices up for players or surly it got to happen with in the next 5 days lets hear some thoughts

Believable7 Unbelievable10

I am highly suspicious that your thoughts are true, he's slimier than an eel.
He obviously hates Leeds so much that he's prepared to put anyone associated with the club through hell.
Is what he said all those years ago about Leeds United about to become fruitful?
Bloody hope not cos I reckon if he did that Monaco would become a hunting ground full of white shirts.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes I wouls be very surprised if Bates will ever sell. We will have to wait until he dies. In hindsight this takeover was never going to happen

Agree0 Disagree0

The deal is almost done, if you were a fan you would listen to NW and take it in. Sick of reading all this Bates smokescreen s**t now. Some of you lot need to grow up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Crowds were down by an average of 4,000 a game last year . we havnt sold many season tickets this year bcoz people are holding back to see what sort of team we put together . i cant see how bates is in a strong position . if he stays it could be a disaster for bates

Agree0 Disagree0

If ken bates is still in charge at the first home game of the seaon I doubt there will be more than 5000 turn up...........

Agree0 Disagree0

As a fan, I don't like Bates any more than the next bloke, but I do wish some people would focus more on supporting our team than carrying on about someone/thing that we can't do anything about.

John fitz leeds 15 clearly knows he has no credibility on this site, so he will now just make up and post any old crap to get himself through the day.

Keep it coming ED its very amusing :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed ... can't you put a filter in to block ay post from John Fitz ... please, please ... either a filter or the posters name up front so we don't have to open his ramblings?

Hi, Ed020, like your style, "you're Ed and you know you are."
Your replies about Andy Gray are priceless.
I could say that anyone who is as Leeds as they would claim, would know exactly who Andy Gray is. (Different post I know.) But I won't.
String them along, I am loving it
Go on my son!

To all those who said Snoddy was slow. Listen to the paul green interview on lutv. He says snoddy beat the beep test, as well as aiden white.

Believable3 Unbelievable9

That doesnt mean hes fast. just means hes fit

Agree0 Disagree0

Beep test is about stamina not out and out sprint speed. It also depends on what level he got up to.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats a level of fitness not speed.

Agree0 Disagree0

The bleep test isnt for speed, its for endurance. Snoddy isnt slow, hes just slow for a winger.

Agree0 Disagree0

That proves fitness and stamina, not speed

Agree0 Disagree0

A bleep test is not about pace its about fittness and pacing yourself not how fast u can run

Agree0 Disagree0

Errrr, the time between beeps gets closer and closer and you have to cover the same distance. Obviously endurance is involved, but you have to sprint toward the end otherwise you won't beat the beep.

Agree0 Disagree0

I can't do it XD.

DJM

Agree0 Disagree0

I never have iPhone messages posted. The time between beep gets shorter, therefore you are sprinting toward the end to beat the beep. I remember doing them myself years ago And could not sprint fast enough at the end. Yes I was knackered and yes it is endurance but also about speed.

Agree0 Disagree0

If you're a person with speed you will know that the last level of the bleep test is not a flat out sprint. Scientifically it is supposed to measure your maximum oxygen intake and when you sprint you don't use oxygen. Sorry original poster.

Agree0 Disagree0

Level 21 on the Multi-Stage Fitness Test requires you to be able to sprint 20 metres in 3.89 seconds...Roughly 6 metres a second sprint speed! Olympic sprinters do just over 10 metres a second!

Agree0 Disagree0

Its true that by the end of it you will be sprinting, but in a match situation you do sprints in short bursts, not continuously after being knackered. bleep test means nothing on speed really.

Agree0 Disagree0

The bleep test is endurance haha.. he isnt slow but he is far from fast as well. He doesnt need to be fast though cause he still beats men without it.

Is andy gray the nephew of eddie gray and son of frank gray?

Your a leeds fan and you dont know of him ?

Agree0 Disagree0

I like him as a player and yes we do need him in LB.
It is looking like we have a good loyal player.

DJM

Agree0 Disagree0

Andy Gray is an ex player and the only one who turned up when we played Vialla at Wembley in the league cup final but if you are under 20 you probabily wont remember that he has went on to have a solid career

Agree0 Disagree0

Note to all you fellow Leeds fans:

As soon as players hit their 30th birthday they dont all suddenly wake up and become s**t. Hes a very good player on a free if we want him, please stress a negative to the deal should it happen please?

Agree0 Disagree0

Haha ed very good but i'm 100% sure that he's eddies nephew. unless my old man being spouting bs to me since i was a kid

Source SSN Aidy White staying he is to sign a 3 year deal great news in my eyes as takeover is taking ages and we need to retain at least some youth in the squad well done Leeds and NW for sorting this out MOT Dan Flan Chester white {Ed020's Note - it is great news, totally agree.}

Just read in the Portsmouth evening news that Varney has agreed deal with Leeds and that the only stumbling block at the moment is between him and pompey, looking at what Trevor Birch said yesterday looks like deal needs to happen sooner rather than later as club are on the brink of liquidation!!

SNODGRASS TRAINED EARLIER IN THE DAY. THE OTHER 2 DIDNT. COME ON DONT BE SO NAIVE.

Snodgrass would go anyway his mind is made up he wants prem football next season, hope we go up and norwich come down

Agree0 Disagree0

Shall we just wait and see?

Agree0 Disagree0

''Snodgrass would go anyway his mind is made up he wants prem football next season, hope we go up and norwich come down''

He will be with Leeds this season and if we do go up he will still be with Leeds and if not he has gone. Also he could go in Jan if we are not fighting in the top 6.

Where did the rumour about NW saying before the Farsley game that he is looking for eight new players to come in, come from?
I listened on LUTV and he doesn't say that, but perhaps interview is cut short. But if I were LUTV reporter that would be really exciting news I would want to report on.
If we do get eight more then these are what I reckon they are.
White, Brown, Austin, Gray, Crainey, Peltier, Norris, Varney.
White signs today remember.

Believable2 Unbelievable7

The 8 won't include White & Brown - obviously.

Agree0 Disagree0

His assistant mick jones mentioned it.

says there will be a few 'goodies' in the mix.

Agree0 Disagree0

What about Blue and Pink then we have the full reservoir dogs.

Agree0 Disagree0

I've read an article that says " warnock earlier stated that he wants to bring around eight players in". But I can't find any audio with him saying it. I presume it's true though.
I expect those to be:
White
Austin
Varney
Brown
Peltier
(another cb) ?
(pacey forward) someone like dj Campbell
( creative midfielder) ?

One of the best signings we make will be keeping hold of snoddy if we can. Fingers crossed

Whiterose1919

Agree0 Disagree0

The figure of 8 players was based on the 4 he has already signed (Kenny, Pearce, Green and Drudry) but his quoted expectation that by now, he would have signed at least double that number of players.

Agree0 Disagree0

Listened to the whole thing dom mattieo and the other bloke said that not NW, assistant manger did state NW has never worked so hard and hopefully will be a busy two weeks for leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

You need to clean your ears out pal, because i listened to the pre game interview and YES he did say he is looking at bringing in up to 8 new players b4 the season starts...MOT

Hi all. I'm a fan from oz. just wondering if anyone can tell me how the games are broadcast in the regular season apart from sky sports. Does Yorkshire radio cover the games live? Any streaming on the net? I've got fox sports but I'd be lucky if I get to see/hear 1 live Leeds game every two months. Cheers ryno {Ed020's Note - 18th august, leeds v wolves}

Believable1 Unbelievable1

I listen to all games on ustream mate. In the search bar just type mighty whites

Agree0 Disagree0

You will find the only way you will hear live commentary is from LUTV which is 5.99 english money which gives you the build up to the game live comm then brief h/lights after5pm the following day,, i hope that has helped you a little bit,, MOT..... ash luafc black

Agree0 Disagree0

You can get the games on minster radio although I don't think they stream it. I struggle to get a signal around yorkshire so you've no chance in oz. unless they start doing it over the Internet. We may go back to radio leeds when pappardelle smurf sods off.

Agree0 Disagree0

You could always get the games on LUTV

Agree0 Disagree0

Www.mypremium.tv for any games on sky sports if u can't get them down under.....

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi, I live in Brisbane. We don't get any live coverage of any matches on radio...I have tried everything. The only way is through LUTV. There is an app called tunein radio, you can get all stations from all over the world. Even with this, we can't get the matches. I listen to Yorkshire radio every night (our time) to listen for any updates, although they are few and far between. We get more info via the net....It's difficult being a supporter in australia. Hope this helps, even though there arent many positives for you.

MOT. Fredh

Dont know sorry if i find out i will post it to this site

On TV it's mainly Sky Sports fella im affraid. The BBC show the odd Championship game. LUTV and Yorkshire Radio all games Live. You need to Emigrate pal! lol.

NickW

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont they advertise all the time that you can pay a 5er to watch the game in other countries? .

Agree0 Disagree0

I live in Melbourne and I watch quite a few Leeds games on fox sports fella. Fair enough they are on on at like midnight though.........you gotta press the red button to change games!

On OS MICK JONES states the following when commenting on Grays performance.

"He came here at his suggestion, because we knew him from the past. And with people like Andy, you want to help them. I think he's a very, very good player so who knows? WERE GOING TO BE LINKED WITH ALOT OF PLAYERS IN THE NEXT 10 DAYS and if he's one of them...brilliant."

anyone else have any thoughts ?

Why 10 days specifically? Could just be due to pre season etc but I'm hoping, like many for another reason

Sign andy gray up,,, he is better for us than against,, trust me ash luafc black

Once the takeover happens, parity will be restored and Leeds will be the place to be again.

Nice post, i just read that too but didn't notice (i was more rocked back by the glowing prise for the old lad! LMAO) Here's hoping... and waiting, another 10 days won't hurt will it lol.

I thought the take-over was nearly complete ?,its dragging on and on,fed up with all the waiting,even ED reckoned he thought it would happen by yesterday
i suppose thats what happens when you have a dodgy owner {Ed020's Note - who knows whats going on, us ed's genuinley thought it was goign to be yesterday, all part an parcel of being a leeds fan tho!! the best things come to those who wait, lets just hope thats the case here}

Mick jones ( Leeds assistant manager) stated on Yorkshire radio that Leeds fans have got an exciting fortnight to look forward to.
Takeover and an influx of players to come in the next fortnight. I just hope warnock has a few nice surprises for us as well as the mediocre players we've been linked with so far

I have inside source to Leeds and he said we have made enquirys for Maynard , Adam Hamill , Delph (loan) , Ben Watson if Delph doesn't happen , also Ross McCormack is only interested at staying in Leeds , he said also more enquirys will be made , Maynard deal was put on hold but now takeover is close we have started negotiations again , Maynard is believed to want talks with big Sam but would be interested in the move as they have a lot of striking options

I would rather have Sam Baldock than Maynard.

Leeds beat Farsley 5-2 and used 2 different teams trialists Cranie and Gray played the first half with Gray scoring twice.
The second half saw youth players like the Tuners ,Killock and Gimple etc get a run out with the transfer listed paynter scoring and Sanchex Payne.

Believable6 Unbelievable3

How can anyone press unbelievable when the match report is correct?

Agree0 Disagree0

Well apart from stating that Sanchex (I use that to clear my drains) scored and the Tuners played (pianos left at home maybe?).
