Gradel is going I just found out, well my dad has. He is good friends with Peter lorimer and he caught up with him earlier and as he is a Leeds fan he asked about the gradel situation and said it seems that the premiership is too good of an thing and he wants to be playing there and doesn't seem to care who for, gutted a bit but players do move on, apparently Ryan smith is going to be lined up as his replacement, not sure what to make of that, but 1 good news is that Snodgrass is definitely staying. ----- --------------------- ---------------------- -------------------- bid has been accepted for gradel

Believable7 Unbelievable4

Why repeat from 2 days ago - Gradel is going nowhere ...........at least until January

Agree0 Disagree0

The exact same thing was posted last week and what a surprise Gradel is still playing for leeds....majority of ppl in here need to stop making stupid stories up and making it out that someone in the family knows someone and they said so and so cos its getting old and boring now

Agree0 Disagree0

How sad can u not come up with anything new? No really I have posted lots of rumours mainly jokes but at least they are funny. If you cant come up with anything good dont bother and dont post the same unfunny rubbish over and over whats the point.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't need to come up with something new I'm not bulls# ting, I've no need to. I'm a Leeds supporter through n through I'm sorry my father is friends with Peter don't trust me I don't expect you 2 but I'm just letting you all know what I know, when it all comes to light in the next week then u will realize I'm not talking crap. If u all think I am talking crap then I'll bet every fan 10 that max wants a move away and he will make this summer unless Simon wants to do a fabregas n refuse him and lose him on a bosman

Agree0 Disagree0

What hav u posted that's funny? And if u have what's the point? I personally think grade is arrogant enough to think he us bigger than Leeds. He will b no irreplaceable loss. Sam has shown the form he promised last year n our new trials cud replace him. If he thinks he is better than Leeds let's gals the money. Nunez, snodgrass, Sam are our top players

Agree0 Disagree0

My dad told me santa was real. Guess what?
Weather its true or not whats the point in re posting unless your trying to upset as many ppl as possible? Well done.

Agree0 Disagree0

Personally I reckon we should all just wait until its on the OS. Until then I wont believe anything about Gradel going

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont get why fellow leeds fans would wind up other fans that are getting anxious and frustrated with the lack of dealings at the club>?

Agree0 Disagree0

Your talking crap.......Gradel has stated he wants to go abroad, thats what he is holding out for, there hasnt been any offer accepted and why the hell would a board member of Leeds United tell your dad because he is pals with him?

Ask you dad to ask PL where all our missing millions are.

Blackburn to bid for Tom Lees {Ed032's Note - why?

Believable2 Unbelievable38

Leeds are still trying to convince Alan Smith to take a drop in league and wages to join. Leeds are also in talks with hull over Jimmy Bullar, but i suspect quite a few are aswell {Ed032's Note - bullards on 50k a week at hull

Believable7 Unbelievable25

Bullard is even worse than smith - when people complain about injuries that's the tip of the iceberg with Bullard a mate is a hull fan and he says the club are fed up of his attitude, he's been suspended due to some bust up with a team mate so I don't think it'd be a good idea. Decent player on paper but don't like his attitude. {Ed032's Note - i agree. suspened due to breaking club rules whilst on tour

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, your right about the wages, but with hull trying to suspend him, i think he will have to take a drop in wages to play for another championship team or will go to a lower/just promoted prem team {Ed032's Note - would you?

Agree0 Disagree0

Still trying with the smith to Leeds angle? Never going to happen

Agree0 Disagree0

He's on 45k..... Still 40 too much for uncle ken...

Agree0 Disagree0

Ever thought they may want him out on that money as no one will pay it, not like when we use to sell payers and pay there wages. so good idea set him up and get rid

Agree0 Disagree0

Still trying with the smith to Leeds angle? Never going to happen
Its getting cery desperate and tedious to say the least

Agree0 Disagree0

leeds are linked with julius aghahowa to replace becks n somma for first few months, africans have always shone at leeds and he is looking to resurrect his career {Ed032's Note - never heard of him

Believable5 Unbelievable21

Google him

never play championship manager 01-02? {Ed032's Note - i did actually but still never heard of him

Agree0 Disagree0

Google him then

brief spell at wigan 4/5 year ago {Ed032's Note - what are everyones thoughts on the new black away kit. i quite like it

Agree0 Disagree0

I think hes more likely to end up in the gymnastics at London 2012 than at Elland Road

Agree0 Disagree0

A great young player with potential 5 years ago, why would he end up at Leeds? Kens wages will not attract someone of
his potential calibre.

Agree0 Disagree0

Is it same guy who ad a season or 2 at portsmouths a couple a seasons back

Agree0 Disagree0

Failed to score in 18 months at Wigan so a perfect partner for Paynter or McCormack who have scored 3 between them since we signed them

Agree0 Disagree0

He's a Nigerian who had signed for West Brom from Shakhtar Donesk. He had excellent potential, don't think he set the world on fire though as was expected. Don't recall him last season, perhaps was released by West Brom in the summer. Wouldn't be a bad signing though, can surely hit the target more than Paynter I reckon.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes garbage rather die than have that piece of crap in a white shirt

Agree0 Disagree0

He was a very good young player, when with Shakktar Donesk

Agree0 Disagree0

Immense on CM 00/01 but s**te at Wigan a few years ago

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would we bring in a complete unknown and dubious player without trial or reserve action and put him straight in for replacement of Somma or Bechio ? Grayson would be laughed out of town and so are u for such ridiculous rumour {Ed032's Note - would his name fit on the back of the shirt?

Agree0 Disagree0

You're not a very clued up editor, bit of a tit really {Ed032's Note - thanks

Agree0 Disagree0

He is nigerian international was suppose to be good a long time ago

Agree0 Disagree0

The deal involving a move for alexei eremenko has gone very quiet.... I have it on good aurthority leeds are still trying to get some big names and quality signings in. Alan smith is still on the radar as is richard dunne and a potential loan deal for a premier league striker. Most likely to be benik afobe from arsenal. If the stockdale transfer doesnt materialise expect a move for a proven mid 30s gk.... MOT

Believable17 Unbelievable13

Quality signing Smith? keep it real, overpriced and overrated.

Agree0 Disagree0

Quality is the last word you would use to describe him.

Agree0 Disagree0

We haven't managed to sign Lichaj yet never mind Richard Dunne - No chance we could pay his wages

Agree0 Disagree0

I never said smith was a quality signing. There was a full stop between if you read it properly. But i still disagree. A fit alan smith is a quality player. He was clasd for leeds and until he got injured at scumchester did ok there. Stand out player when newcastle got promoted and was unlucky to be injured most of last season MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Dunne is keen on a loan move out of villa after the fall out last season. Alex mcgleish may give him fresh start. But we were linked with a move in jan for him aswel.

Agree0 Disagree0

I never said smith was a quality signing. There was a full stop between if you read it properly. But i still disagree. A fit alan smith is a quality player. He was clasd for leeds and until he got injured at scumchester did ok there. Stand out player when newcastle got promoted and was unlucky to be injured most of last season MOT
And what have you been watching? He was a second choice striker at Leeds, wasnt prolific at OT so they moved him into defensive. Realised he was pants even before the leg break, once the injury was mended they knew he was lacking pace and had psychological hangups when going into tackles, they ''luckily'' flogged him to Nufc for a rip off fee, and he hasnt performed very well for Newcastle in 3 1/2 years. For the fee they paid, 6 months worth of being a DR cheerleader isnt good enough. They were a prem quality team, due to high wages few left after relegation, dont make out Smith got Nufc promoted on is own and he certainly wasnt their stand out player on the pitch -Mark

Leed's current striker crisis will result in bids for LeFonde and Neil Mellor. {Ed032's Note - id hardly call it a crisis

Believable8 Unbelievable26

Really dont want neil mellor, wont be good for us. Harry MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Ill offer to play surely i can do better than mellor

Agree0 Disagree0

Neil Mellor is very fat. Paynter mark II. Dont want him. End of story.

Agree0 Disagree0

I admire your optimism ed, but I think it's not unfair to call it a striker crisis when 2 of your main strikers are out injured. Ross, should and hopefully will be ok alongside Nunez or max if he's still here. Now what if one of those gets injured too.... Paynter, FFS, now we're talking crisis {Ed032's Note - the transfer window still has over a month to go that is why i don't think it is a crisis

Agree0 Disagree0

If we are going for players like Le Fondre and Mellor then we do have a flaming crisis. {Ed032's Note - don't believe the hype

Agree0 Disagree0

No crisis ED , what would you call it then, don't expect this to be posted because every time i question your responce it never does. {Ed032's Note - there you go

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2011 12:43:31
marcus hahnemann too come to Leeds. Ibrahama Sonko too come on trial with the whites also {Ed032's Note - just to let everyone know that if a post doesn't make it onto the rumours page it goes onto the banter page so have a look at that as well - its a good read

Believable10 Unbelievable20

Despite being a freebie, hahnemann is a damn good keeper, well proven in the championship and premiership. althoguh he's no spring-chicken i think he's a good shout

Agree0 Disagree0

I would be happy with both of these players at leeds. Harry MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2011 12:22:45
ed do you have any rumour news cos i see we put things up on here but eds never do

deakko {Ed032's Note - we do comment a lot. its very difficult with leeds cause they like to keep things close to their chests. so apart from stockdale and the 3 trialists nothing concrete at the mo but i do expect 3 maybe 4 new signings

Believable9 Unbelievable8

Stockdale is in Leeds this weekend, but alas, only for a christening. {Ed032's Note - hope he doesn't drop the baby!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2011 12:14:02
leeds to let gradel go if 4.5m comes in. Will then sign tom cairney and John fleck

Believable10 Unbelievable28

Boring, same old made up crap. why not slag bates and grayson off too?

Agree0 Disagree0

GRADEL IS NOT GOING geez what do you have to do before people understand this?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2011 09:59:08
Stockdale prefers a move to Leeds and is most likely to come us. A deal is very close to being made

Believable41 Unbelievable10

Rubbish, he is at Ipswich now.

deal to be annouced by the end of the day.

Agree0 Disagree0

He has signed for Ipswich. Just cos you say it does it mean it will come true

Agree0 Disagree0

Get bk to your own page. clearly hes coming leeds as he supports us and would rather go norwich than ipswich

Agree0 Disagree0

No really, Look at the Ipswich website (fanzine) Just the last little bits to sort out. Said he would rather join a bigger better club {Ed032's Note - hes a fan of tractors

Agree0 Disagree0

It's not that BS Leeds is a far bigger club even most Ipswich would admit that, But Leeds messed Fulham around either we accepted with 200k loan fee or the deal with the recall clause, we tried to negotiated instead Ippy just came in and gave fulham what they want and got themselves a Prem class Keeper, another royal f***up by bates and Harvey..

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets just remember guys, this is out of stockdales hands unless we agree terms with fulham which is sounding questionable due to 24hr recalls, loan fees etc. stockdale will only have a choice of where to go if both us and ipswich can agree terms, if its just them, his only decision is whether he wants to join them

Agree0 Disagree0

Stockdale has obviously seen sense and joined Ipswich as they are more ambitious and a better bet for promotion than Leeds. Sorry Leeds fans, I don't envy you with Ken Bates in charge. {Ed032's Note - move your tractor on

Agree0 Disagree0

Second time this season Leeds have been beaten to a player be the little club from sleepy suffolk, Leeds fans need to see they are no bigger club Than the super Blues anymore, far far from it in fact {Ed032's Note - this is a transfer rumours website not a comedy website

Agree0 Disagree0

Haha, very true. Most good comedians do base there material on fact Leeee Bowyer now Stockdale, i thinks its proof. more money better backing, and the Fans which turn up to portman road may not be in the same numbers as Elland road, but proper fans, full times fans at least {Ed032's Note - why are you on a leeds site tractorboy. no-one to talk to on your own site me thinks

Agree0 Disagree0

Well, as a fellow football fan i thought i would have a chat to you, have to say your version of this is much better than ours. i think you reluctance to reply to my statements is clear proof that you know i am right though. Did you want Bowyer back at Leeds? just out of interest? {Ed032's Note - you are a closet leeds fan. didn't want bowyer back - he only went to you because he is closer to london and has always wanted to own a farm.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha, im not. i do live in wetherby though I thought you might say you didnt want Bowyer, why on earth would you not want someone of bowyers class playing for you after the season he has just had, granted he is old, but look at Giggs. he came to Town because he knows we are a much better and financially sound club, i have to say it, Bates is a tit plus moving to Leeds means lots of ethnics, we all know he wouldnt want that {Ed032's Note - its a nightmare of a trip to ipswich from up here. cant you afford motorways in suffolk

Agree0 Disagree0

Correct it is, ill be honest i dont go down all that much because it is such a pain. already got my ticket for Town Leeds though wouldnt miss that one for the World, remember the Result last year? {Ed032's Note - we wont mention that. wheres the proof of stckdale signing for you?

Agree0 Disagree0

No proof mate, i Dont even really want him to join, altough im 95% sure he will join us. dont want a keeper that is only on loan and could be called back at any point during the season, and with fulhams first choice being 40, lets face it he will {Ed032's Note - yeah i'm a little unhappy about the recall clause. would be a good signing for either of us if you were guaranteed he would stay the season

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed, i think your need for a Glovesman is much more than ours with casper gone we still have Fullop {Ed032's Note - ive heard maxwell from wrexham is a good prospect

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm not sure whether we should sign Stockdale either you know, my cousin was at Huddersfield's acadamy with him and Stockdale got released at 16, my cousin says he was very average, why has he suddenly improved massively?

Agree0 Disagree0

Jog on tractor boy. We had bowyer in his prime when we were champions league. What the f*** have you lot ever won of achieved. Your just a jealous, closet Leeds fan wanting our fame. Ambition, prospects, money?? Ha ha you make me laugh

Agree0 Disagree0

Stockdale on loan to Ipswich - source The Sun.

Believable12 Unbelievable17

Stockdale would prefere to join LEEDS: East Anglian Daily Times.

Agree0 Disagree0

Stockdale has already stated, if he had the chance to go on loan to Leeds, "He would love to help the club he supports to get back where they belong"

Agree0 Disagree0

The Sun is probably the least reliable newspaper available.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2011 04:21:40
Leeds been tracking Michael Johnson for 12 months Williams & others have been watching him closely during pre-season & think he's getting back to his best, unfortunately looks like a loan rather than a perm deal but should happen.

Believable21 Unbelievable15

Good signing, similar to Clayton but better I believe.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Johnson would obviously be a great signing. Talented midfielder wanted by Arsenal previously. It would all depend on fitness and finances. He has been decimated by injuries for about 2 and a half years, and he may not like the Colonels offer of 2k per week

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Jul 2011 03:09:03
To the person who said - "Did anyone notice simon Grayson outside Huddersfield clubshop on ssn earlier? Alex smithies here we go" - larry was in Huddersfield to for the league managers meeting where it was agreed that the limit on subs would go down to 5 from 7. Nothing to do with signing smithies I'm afraid.

Yorky

Believable17 Unbelievable6

Obviously not seen as the meeting was held at Leicesters ground

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought that meeting was held in Leicester at the New Power Stadium or whatever it is called now

Agree0 Disagree0

The vote was taken at an EGM at Leicester City's King Power Stadium.
According to the os

Agree0 Disagree0

The meeting was at the king power stadium in leicester

Agree0 Disagree0

The meeting was at leicester it says on the leeds site .

Agree0 Disagree0

Im the only one that cares that down to 5 subs again will make FM worse ;) lol
