From reading the LUST meeting summary notes it seems that there is an indeed a take over being discussed with at 3 parties interested in some way. Doesn't put a timescale on things or ensure that a takeover will indeed be completed.

Anyone interested in the meeting notes go to the lufc trust website.

Believable6 Unbelievable10

LUST dont know s**t, which is why they are trying to chuck mud around, they have got there backs up and are out to cause trouble.

Agree0 Disagree0

Say a takeover happens, new owners invest heavily in the squad, we have some marginal success and ER is again under rightful club ownership... all without LUST involvement.
Whether you agree or disagree with LUST's tactic of 'direct action' you have to admit, they've been more a hinderance than a help.

think we will see alot of players leaving who may of been ok for us before but if we do get monies to spend better quality will replace what we could afford before ? nickybee

Believable11 Unbelievable8

Lets hope this is the case Nicky. I still feel abit apprehensive on what is goin to happen with are club. You don't seem to go far without money in football these days. We should be one of the most attrective clubs about.
Time for a changing of the guard.

Leeds takeover complete.
Hearing price is just over.40million

Believable11 Unbelievable18

£400,000? That's some deal! :-) Don't see any news of it in the National Press. Would have thought Reuters, Sky and BBC would have been all over it, eh?

Agree0 Disagree0

Source or you one who thinks there in the know?

Agree0 Disagree0

Get a loan out meself if I thought I could buy them for £400,000

Agree0 Disagree0

Its all over tw@ter at moment and no ome not the origianl poster they recons it will be announced beguinning july

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love for this to be true but as a Leeds fan, I've been teased and led on too many times to bite. You should get back to your online dating, you will have equally as bad luck there no doubt.

Agree0 Disagree0

This lad must think he doesn't need a source. Propper little Mistic Meg but more like Meg and Mog.

Leeds have been sold for £41 million. They buyer is Bernard Arnault. Watch this space.

Believable16 Unbelievable21

Would be nice but as always I'll believe it once confirmed

Agree0 Disagree0

How do you know so much information? Or is it a wild guess?

Agree0 Disagree0

We been looking at the forbes rich list why would he be interested in leeds he could pick up a french team for less tha that

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh I sooo wish. But Leeds fans don't get that lucky. If it happened Papa Smurf could sign off with huge credit.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope so, fingers & everything crossed, possible good times ahead, about time for us long suffering fans.

Agree0 Disagree0

Where have you heard this, as i just thought this was just some little rumour?

Agree0 Disagree0

I have also heard the same from inside Elland road, completed tonight but yet to be formalised and a board to be set up. He owns chanelle and he has apparently paid £41 million. The americans were just to throw us of the scent...

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope its true its killing me wating this long to find out , and want rid of bates so bad change for the better , MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I really, really, really want this to be true, and for Bernard Arnault to be our new owner, but I just can't see it happening. Trying to believe! MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I want this to be true but can't see it, mind you chelski fans could never have predicted where they would be after being bought for a pound.

Super Leeds

I'm sure this whole trail was just a set up so the earlier submitter could use Chanelle and scent in the same comment.

My sources tell me that the takeover will be done tomorrow. Reliable source. Watch this space!

Believable9 Unbelievable19

For 1 you dont have a source 2 if you did it wouldnt be worth his job telling you incase you blabbed to the press 3 all partoes will have signed a non disclosure agreement that means nothing gets out at all ive bee n at the commercial pub most nights watching lash have a bear or 2 and yes i got him 1 or 2 and even he aint talking

Agree0 Disagree0

How much do you think we will have to spend on players?

Agree0 Disagree0

And what makes you such a f@cking expert on takeovers? Another champs manager that thinks moving his mouse constitutes managing a football club. No wonder the deals taking so long if the bugger wanting to buy us reads constant negativity on this site. Mate, in business I can assure you that the cleaner knows every bit of business that is going on including the highly confidential stuff... Do you think they lock every fecker up for two months in a room till due diligence is complete? We'll be bought and announced by tomorrow or I'll eat my cats.
Stockport/Hague lifetime Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll eat your cats. With some fava beans and a nice chianti of cause

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope you're hungry.....
Can't see it happening tbh

Agree0 Disagree0

How is it negativity, when 1) i want my club who i have supported all my life to get back in the big time. 2) your f***ing being negative by complaining like an old woman 3) i dont think a multi millionaire involved in buying a football club would have time to read through every little thing on this site.
get over yourself an have some hope!

Signings may be put on hold for a while after 2 in 2 days which were clearly signed weeks ago. No-one will have been approached while the takeovers been going on so unless its another freebie we signed at the end of the season but are only announcing now i guess we're just gonna have to be patient.
Players i think we may sign after takeover is done (early july):
Kenny
Peltier
DJ Campbell
Gradel

Believable7 Unbelievable16

Lets be right we have players going out on freebies freeing up wages which means we can sign as many freebies as we want as long as they dont cost in wages more than the players leaving

Agree0 Disagree0

First 3 yes, Gradel no. As much as i would love him back i can't see him returning, atleast until we are a premier league team

Agree0 Disagree0

Gradels a possibility heard he wants a move back, stranger things have happened

Agree0 Disagree0

Paddy Kenny seen at Woolley services on M1 earlier this week (northbound) just smiled when asked about LUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

My brother said his mate thats friends whith aidie white said it is very unlikely that he will sign for leeds as he has been offered 50% ontop of the wage that leeds are offering him but he also seen kenny at elland road looking around . this will be our next signing

Agree0 Disagree0

A friends dad is a taxi driver and picked up either a high ranking member of staff at Leeds but he thinks an fa employee who said bates' office is all cleared out and the takeover is near completion MOT

Believable9 Unbelievable18

Joke right, why would somone from the FA, say a thing like that to a Taxi driver! MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

You get the same Bs about your takeover as we do at NFFC . All we can do is wait and see

Agree0 Disagree0

Im a taxi driver in York & youd be surprised what people will tell ya! yorkie

Agree0 Disagree0

As if a high member of the FA would be taking a hackney cab lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

If i was from the fa and had loads of money i would use a black cab as well instead of a posh car or having a driver.

Agree0 Disagree0

Your freinds dad not telling the truth no one from leeds will leak that and why would a member of the fa know whats happening at leeds at this moment in time or be ay leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

If hes a high ranking person whos at leeds he will be on about 30k a year so why would he need to get taxis ? i think hen would have is own car dont you ?

Agree0 Disagree0

If he was from the FA the chances are he would possibly be from outside leeds and has come first class on the train in which case getting a taxi to and from the station is possible. I also believe that taxi drivers hear alot of stuff they shouldn't be told. But as i have heard so much crxp on here about the takeover I will believe it when i see it

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates doesn't have any office space at ER he is only in the UK 90 days a week {Ed013's Note - My week sometimes feel like 90 days, but I think you meant to say year}

diouf signed for the mighty whites coming in 1st july spoke to him in manchester i asked what his plans were for next season, he said he signed for leeds a few weeks ago,

MOT
SM

Believable13 Unbelievable27

That guy who saw him other day coming out of donny rovers ground said he wont sigb=n for anyone till he comeds off his hols and if he has signed why aint leeds said so

Agree0 Disagree0

If true then the club have obviously kept it quiet for a reason or it would be posted everywhere SSN, OS etc, but Diouf just goes round telling everyone does he? hmm...
RyanMOT

Agree0 Disagree0

If he has then good, might be a git but a class player

Agree0 Disagree0

Look i can only tell you what he told me, cant see why he would of lied as i never told him i was a leeds fan, make of it what you will. if it turns out he goes somewhere else have a go then
MOT
SM

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm the poster from the other day who saw him at Rovers ground. He DID say he was in talks after he comes back off holiday (He said he was going this week) and he didn't tell me he had signed for Leeds just that he was speaking to teams in Yorkshire because he likes this part of the country... There is a small possibilty he was in Manchester maybe shopping for his holidays, and maybe he is getting asked by people all the time about where he goes next so maybe he just thinks "sod it, might as well just tell people I'm going Leeds" wish he had said that to me!!

Agree0 Disagree0

What would you prefer if it happened
diouf to sign for us
or
bates resigned
if it does happen, bates would probably say, i've resigned cos i did not want to sign diouf!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont believe any one has spoke to him but do believe he will be if not already a leeds player, think he will do a good job just hope the leeds faithful take to him, he is the kind of player who needs his teams fans to love him

Agree0 Disagree0

Good (ish) player but a bit of a loose cannon

Agree0 Disagree0

We at leeds , want honest , decent , hard working players , but for me spitting in sopmeones face , once can be seen as re mist , bur he seems to like it , as good a plater as he is , do we really want him , we are on our arse tbh , lets build a better prospect about our club

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would he tell a random person who he bumped into in the street??

Agree0 Disagree0

Diuff has not signed foir leeds yet if he had leeds would have announced it that diuff would be joining on 1st of july just like drury and green

Agree0 Disagree0

As a lifelong supporter-55 years-of both LUFC and Celtic I would hate to see Diouf come to our wonderful club.We have regained our reputation as one of the best clubs in England and I would hate to see it ruined by signing a player who proved,at a game against Celtic,that he has no respect for supporters

Agree0 Disagree0

My mate at university lives next door to Diouf in Bolton and knows him well. I asked him if he knew anything about a possible Leeds move and he told me Diouf is planning a move abroad for a big money deal in the middle east

Agree0 Disagree0

@ poster 13 see so diuff live next door to student accomodation ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Poster 13 does not say he lives next to student accomodation he says his mate at university lives next door to Diouff that could be true as in his parents house etc etc

Agree0 Disagree0

He's an average player, who is getting on. He brings trouble to most clubs, and is disliked by nearly all fans (and probably players alike) so is not needed by our great club.

We need unity, harmony and togetherness, and he brings none of the above.

Ollie
(lincolnWhite)

MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

If we do sign Diouf...then we've got to give him support. He has that touch of class that we are distinctly lacking at the moment (Especially if Snoddy goes). He would do well for us, sure he's had a bad past but nobody likes us anyway!

Agree0 Disagree0

Wouldnt know weather to believe this or not because diouff probably would tell every one... and the first comment coming from doncaster when hes not there anymore :/ ... and as for some other comments, ive said for the last few weeks i wouldnt be suprised if we had already agreed terms withplayers just not said anything, yes it were just a guess but then the next two days we signed two players.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2012 13:54:14
I think we can safely say the deal is 90 percent done and that all the freebies will come in before July 1st and the ones that cost after July 1st...C'MON YOU WHITES! I've also heard about max gradel wanting to return to Leeds, any news on this?

Believable21 Unbelievable14

Untrue someone made a tw***t up and he hadnt tweeted

Agree0 Disagree0

All I know is that he isn't enjoying life in France and wants a move back to the UK.

Mikey

Agree0 Disagree0

I like many would love to see him make a return to ER. But it's not all up to him, lets hope A- we have the money. And B- Warnock wants him :) RyanMOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Thought the tweet was made up but knew he wasn't happy in France

Agree0 Disagree0

Was a good player in his final season, bit greedy and nearly cost us promotion! He's made his bed tough enjoy France :-)

Agree0 Disagree0

Not going to happen, forget tiwtter, forget rumours just use common sense...he did well last year in france, has the loyatly of a rat and would put himself before leeds, if he comes back to england he would have a few suitors with more money and status then us...if he comes back id fancy it would be for hammers they have long admired him and in better place than leeds, come on fellas look forward not backwards...its boring and dull...we want the next gradel not the old one back

Agree0 Disagree0

The thing that made him goodwas, his speed and his unpradictability on the ball.
I would have him back in a flash. Snoddy and him caused all sorts of problems for defences first year back.
It just all could start coming togeather now.
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant see max gradel coming back if im honest as much as id love to see him back.! Theres defo something going on behind closed doors we'll have to sit tight.!

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2012 13:53:35
I know its all gone quiet and all that regarding the takeover.....something tells me thatDuncan Revie and his arab mates are involved somewhere. I also know that he has previously made an offer for the club and been knocked back but I think he still fancies his chances of owing lufc.
Probably just bull but thats my thoughts.

Craig Gower from Swansea is a new rumour I've heard

Believable7 Unbelievable10

Is it not Mark Gower thats at Swansea? Either way, good player in my opinion

Agree0 Disagree0

Obviously not true. It's mark gower. Good player if it was to be true.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah its Mark Gower, Craig Gower id a rugby league player, Mark Gower on fringes with Swansea last year so possible I suppose

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not much cop to be honest.Squad player is all he'd be no matter where he was.We need better than that.MOT

Believable6 Unbelievable15

A wonder free kick? are you having a laugh? it was timid. and any defensive wall with any brains would have blocked it comfortably. but i agree as a defender he has come on leaps and bounds

Agree0 Disagree0

He won't join us he only joined them perminantly in january

A contact of mine, Jeremy Gledhurst, good friends with Peter Lorimer - Jeremy was told by Peter that should the takeover go through, both he and Shaun Harvey would remain on the board and we would have a new chairman. Peter also told Jeremy that there is no truth in rumours that we are in discussions with anyone from the Middle East and that the only consortium to put their money where their mouth is has been a group from the United States. Discussions with this group are so far advanced that they are hoping for a deal to be struck by Friday 29th June 2012 at the absolute latest. I have no idea who the new chairman would be but it does seem as though the group from the US are the front and only runners. If I find out further info, I shall post on here.

Believable11 Unbelievable15

If this is true, I hope you havent comprimised anything! If it is true, Lorimer probably shouldnt have said anything either!

Agree0 Disagree0

Kinda doubt anybody has spilled anything due to the confidentiality agreement

Agree0 Disagree0

If true you have just dumped Jeremy G and Peter Lorimer in the Sh*te - and let Lorimer know that Jeremy cant hold his tongue - well done - thanks for telling us all tho MOT - prob no harm done - dont worry - just dont mention names next time

Agree0 Disagree0

No way Lorimer would retain a place on the board. He's only present now as Ken believes he represents the fans. He's already admitted he knows nothing about the supposed deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

This is the biggest load of B****x written here for quite a while.
I think we all know that Peter Lorimer is an honourable man and wouldn't dream of spouting his mouth off like this. The author should hang his head in shame for this foul attempt at muddying a great mans name.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Expecdt the letter through the door from Mr Bates as YOU have just broke the confidential agreement...and Peter Lorimor might as well empty his draw..........I think you are lying my friend and as the others have said hang your head in shame...not needed or required

Danny Guthrie in next!

Believable23 Unbelievable13

Beckford is not good enough, warnock wants hard workers !!!

21 Jun 2012 11:47:10
Ins:
Paddy Kenny QPR - 400K
Lee Peltier Leicester 350k
Matt Connolly QPR free
Danny Guthrie free
Max Gradel Saint Etienne 1.5 mill
Jermaine Beckford Leicester 1.5 mil

Leaving team like this:
Kenny
Peltier Connolly Pearce Drury
Snodgrass Green Guthrie Gradel
Beckford Becchio

All the deals involving ££££ will be made after 1st July when takeover/investment is completed.
Matt Connolly and Danny Guthrie could be completed this week.

-MS

Believable22 Unbelievable18

So Tom Lees, star of our defence, just signed a new contract, not in team? Another guesser....

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Drury signed just for rotation option, he's already 33 y o. Connoly's versatile player, play him in left and in the centre Lees rules!
i still doubt about Gradel. Beckford only will cost us much money

Agree0 Disagree0

I would love to know why people think that Gradel will come back. it wont happen he has moved on, so should we.

Agree0 Disagree0

And equally why people consistently toy with the fantasy of Beckford returning. He won't and he's overrated anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

Drury will be a starter for sure, Warnock has already stated that he does'nt think there is a better left back at our level.

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock usually plays 4-2-3-1, so im not sure how theses players would fit into that system

but i agree, i wouldn't play Lees either, Connolly or Fitz Hall both free and both better

Agree0 Disagree0

Tom Lees not in the team....... future Leeds captain & England centre half!

Agree0 Disagree0

Jermaine Beckford and Max Gradel both freely chose to leave Leeds United for some of the greener grass and some fans only remember the good bits of both ... Beckford scored the goal that got us promoted but was, at times, greedy, selfish, occasionally lazy and missed a bagful of chances; Gradel was electric at times and scored some spectacular goals but his disciplinary record left a bit to be desired and probably cost us points. Time to move on people and leave them in the bed they made for themselves, or will their fans still be hankering for their return when they reach 40?

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with #08 - Beckford was made to look good by the hard work Becchio put in on his behalf, if he was good as he believes himself to be Moyes would not have off loaded him as quickly as he did.

As for rumours of Diouff coming - mate at work who is a Rovers ST holder said he was good .....so long as you wrapped ball up for him .... we need players that will go looking for work NOT them that will let other 10 do a job & then be-moan poor service when they do nowt.

The proposed takeover of Leeds United is still on track. Yorkshire Post journalist Richard Sutcliffe tweeted that Warnock is looking to sign his third player very soon – a Bosman, due to the ‘takeover not done yet’.

The YEP’s Phil Hay has written today that:

Talks are at a “delicate” but advanced stage and edging towards a conclusion.

Happy Days MOT!

Believable17 Unbelievable6

Sorry, but didn't NW sign his third player last nigh lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Exactly! pearce, drury and green. maybe you mean third bosman?

Phil Hay's comment is regarding the takeover not the signing

To original poster - These comments were tweeted yesterday am (20 June) not today and yes the 3rd signing was Green

keith andrews, max gradel and king beckford have all stated that they are keen on a move t elland road

Believable19 Unbelievable12

Although I cannot see this happening I would give my left boll**kfor this to actually be true. All the people who say they wouldn't have him back, he's greedy etc need a reality check. He left to better himself as 9/10 people would do given the opportunity.

Beckfor, somma, rosco and becchio up front would be quality!

Agree0 Disagree0

I spoke to Beckford when we played Leicester he said that he would come back if Bates let him

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't need a reality check thanks ... it's true ...

Agree0 Disagree0

I know keith andrews and he hates leeds utd so you are lying end of story have a nice day!

Dont want gradel or beckford left for greener grass and more money because we couldnt/wouldnt give them more not to better themselves

Agree0 Disagree0

Not being funny but ive got photos on my facebook with him by pool..

Agree0 Disagree0

Now why would he share a personal text with a complete stranger? its one thing asking to take a photo, but sharing texts? another b********er!

Agree0 Disagree0

No chance? reason ? just signed a new
contract at burnley and would cost
2/3 million old kens heart will get a real shock

Agree0 Disagree0

You seen his texts ? so what your saying is this happened
trippier got a text you said can i have a look mate i reckon its from eddie howe about you signing for leeds then he said yeah sure pal have a look because i share all my details with weird strangers

max gradel interested in returning to leeds after a poor season in france and he has said on twitter that he does not want to go to any other championship club as his links are 2 strong with united , swear he was only with us for a couple of years , but he is quality so i would welcome him back :)

Believable14 Unbelievable13

When did he tweet this? im pretty sure he closed his twitter account down months ago...be a great signing if we got him back but cant see it

Agree0 Disagree0

So after one poor season, he wants to come back!

Very quick outfield player but he did jump ship (or am I wrong)

Agree0 Disagree0

If you actually check his official twitter account, he hadn't stated what you say recently, no mention of a poor season at SE.
Yes he has stated last year he still thinks and loves Leeds and would return to us. I'd love him back, but in a year or two maybe?

Agree0 Disagree0

He never tweeted that its been a month or so since he last ttw**ded any thing and he had a =good season

Agree0 Disagree0

Mad Max jumped ship ... time to give Robbie Rogers his opportunity.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah he doesnt wanna go to any other championship side - im sure he'd prefer a move to the PL

Agree0 Disagree0

Robbie Rogers?! You're having a laugh -will more than likely head off into obscurity quicker than Grella in all likelihood, I'm afraid. Mad Max every time for me -and the sooner the better! Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2012 10:32:39
rumours also that keith andrews is very interested in joining leeds

Believable16 Unbelievable14

Rob Green has agreed a deal with QPR.
Paddy Kenny is wanting to agree a deal with any potential new club before July 1st.
He'd be the first spotlight signing for us. As well as a good show of intent from Neil Warnock.

Believable13 Unbelievable7

21 Jun 2012 10:31:42
leeds will anounce at least 2 more free signings before july 1st , and then cash injection from the take over people will allow us tompurchase at least 4 prem quality players i rekon , which would be just what we need to make it to the prem #snoddyPLEASEstay

Believable13 Unbelievable6

(Snoddy please stay) rubbish either sign or get out.

Agree0 Disagree0

Nice but not going to happen, Takeover is a smokescreen, mark my words.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 Jun 2012 10:09:07
Leeds are well on their way to been taken over within the coming days hence why warnock hasn't left yet and why the signings have been announced in the past few days, I wouldnt make stuff like this up if I knew it wasn't true, I know a council member who has been in touch with Shaun Harvey recently

Believable6 Unbelievable11

I doubt Harvey is disclosing anything to Leeds Council Memebers about the takeover, just some council bod wanting to seem important I reckon.

I have heard from a good source of mine, Mr H P Brown that Leeds are to make a loan offer for conner wickham of Sunderland. Would do a job in championship. M.O.T

Believable6 Unbelievable13

Dont get me wrong, would be a good signing, but warnock said he will only sign players permanently and not on loan. hope we get him though.

Sounds to me mate, your source is just a sauce. He must be a chip off the old block.

Believable4 Unbelievable7

No it didn't, mostly spoke about the Euro's and England.

Agree0 Disagree0

Like as if the whole of Leeds United are going to keep 100% silent on the whole investment/takeover thing and Warnock is just going to go on radio and tell the world what is happening?

I think not......

According to Lust. Leeds are pretty much in the sh1t with money and cash flow. Hence the takeover / investment need.

There are irregularities in the book keeping and LUFC have been asked by companies house to resubmit the financial accounts..

Sounds about right for Bates..

Their words not mine !

Believable13 Unbelievable9

According to Lust! after all they are completey impartial!

Agree0 Disagree0

I would not trust LUST as far as i could throw them!

Agree0 Disagree0

Most of the discrepancies were minor issues and in all honesty are the responsibility of the accountant to ensure that numbers in different parts of the accounts match. As a business owner that's what you pay accountants for.

Agree0 Disagree0

And like this hasn't been the case for how many years now?

Agree0 Disagree0

LUST are the ones who highlighted these 'irregularities' and published them to anyone and everyone in the first place, even going so far as to point out errors in grammar... They seem to have a policy of 'Bates out at any cost' and are blind to the damage it may do to the club. Bates and LUST are as dangerous as each other in my opinion.

Agree0 Disagree0

Nobodys "books" have been looked at more than Leeds Uniteds over the last few years, what with the first takeover by Bates and then when the Football League and other Governing bodies wanted to now about our ownership only a year or so ago, so I would suggest if there where irregularities in there they would have come to light long ago.

I think LUST are just talking nonsense and speculating as they are completely out of the loop on these talks.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lust have and are doing more than all you moaning sh**ts put together. It's only because of them that we may finally get rid of Bates who is crippling our beloved club.

Agree0 Disagree0

Depends on what you 'want' any errors to suggest;
1: If you were going to 'cook' the books, wouldn't you make pretty sure that they looked immacualte?
2: You think that sloppy book-keeping in and of itself suggests something much more sinister is going on.
3: The accountants are simply incompetent and their work peer-reviewed (if at all), by the incapable.

My personal feeling is that it's much more likely to be closer to the 3rd option. Copious bitter experience of finance departments and boardrooms tells me never to discount incompetence; the UK business pandemic.

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't understand the levels of hatred towards LUST. As a Leeds fan, you're under moral obligation to support an organisation who very clearly desire.only that the club is run as a football club and that the fans money is channelled into a team rather than paying off needlessly libelled individuals. Even if they know nothing about a takeover, they still meet regularly to listen to the many gripes of all fans. The Trust isn't anti-Bates out.of principal, but the way he is killing the club falls well outside of the ideals laid out in the vision statement.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't 'hate' LUST at all, nor am I a moaning sh*t for speaking against them. I distrust LUST and I distrust Bates. Both use methods that can cause harm to the club that I love, end of story. I would like to see the back of Bates as much as anyone, but I disapprove of the methods that LUST have used as much as the ones Bates has used. Those people who feel that LUST are the solution to everything need to grow up and realise that not everything is black and white. I support the ideals of LUST, but not their methods and there are many in LUST who feels that makes me a Bates supporter. 'With us or against us' does not apply in this case. I am not 'with' either - I am 'with' Leeds United.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's supporters like you that are bringing our club down, you sit on here saying you don't trust Bates but do sweet FA about it. I think people like you are jealous of Lust cos they have the balls to challenge Bates something you would never do.

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of old twaddle. Do I bring the club down by attending all home games with the season ticket I have renewed every year for nearly 2 decades? Do I bring the club down by shopping in the store or buying the programmes and food? Do I hell. Do LUST encourage demonstrations and tell people to stop attending matches? YES. Do LUST publish errors in accounting to people who could fine LUFC or dock LUFC points as a result? YES. Is Bates a person who needs to go? YES..... I don't know how you can DARE suggest I bring my club down simply because I question LUST's approach just as much as I question that of Bates. Get a grip.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lust are not Leeds United. I support Leeds United

My second post in 1 day for first time poster! I did state earlier that talks were going very nicely indeed!! And can i just inform every one that by Friday we will all be very happy Leeds fans!! Im not saying that we win the league yet i predict a top two finish. The good news that is coming out of Leeds at present will continue to come out for next couple of months!! If you think here we go again... I told Leeds rumours talks was running smoothly before anyone else did!! some one Jordan Rhodes how about Rhodes Bedford? The possibilities of this happening is as possible as Leeds united football club been billionaire by Friday tea time... come on Leeds

Believable10 Unbelievable12

So we getting taken over on friday then? or will it come to friday and we be let down per usual?

Agree0 Disagree0

Call me a sceptic if you want but after all the other let downs etc I will believe it when I see it.

These are the best ones, I told you first, so I'm in the know. First time poster, trust me and no one else.
Go back and have a look mate, it's all been said before.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed can soon tell us, i think i can see from IP address - is that right Ed and is this only there second rumour {Ed013's Note - Correct}

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't think it is as early as Friday more like within next 2-3 weeks

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry but think u got ur facts wrong we wont be signing rhodes with fair play championship teams have £6million plus profits of last season £3million thats £9million hudd want £8million for him leeds wont waste that much on him when we need more than 1 player

Agree0 Disagree0

I never stated we would buy rhodes i stated that if we wanted to buy him and beckford we could... Im not a liar... so dont call me one please

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't call him a liar or he will get his mum to come tell you off!! #mummybiggerboysarecallingmealiar

Agree0 Disagree0

Daddy Ed013 tell them all off please, he's being bullied and its setting a bad impression {Ed013's Note - Now now people, all fans of the same team and this is a rumours page}

Agree0 Disagree0

I think what he was saying - in his own littley way - was that we will be so overrun with pennies on Friday - we could buy both players if we wanted to. My personal view is that Becks left cos he wanted premier league footy and more money (it's always the mone). If he had stayed with us, he would have got it as his goals would have got us promoted. As it is, he's had his fingers burnt, shown no loyalty to any of his clubs and can stay where he is.

Agree0 Disagree0

You havnt got a clue who i am or who i may or not know. All i said is tomorrow tea time all us Leeds fans will be happy trust me!! And as for been bullied lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Guys we are leeds... marching on together... give the guy a break, if tomorrow tea time passes and he is wrong then he will feel stupid enough without others giving him stick..... but if he is wrong we will see tomorrow. DAZLEEDS4LIFE

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry to seem inpatient, but as probably all Leeds fans will agree this is dragging on now. Are you 100% confident by tea tme tomorrow Ken Bates wil have left and we'll have new owners?

Agree0 Disagree0

We all dragged on. Lets just say its worth waiting another 21 hours for if not before!! Lets just we are all going to be dancing in our living rooms
