how can anyone say grayson is poor in bring in players?
Paddy Kisnorbo free, is he poor?
david somma free Kasper Schmeichel free, lloyd sam free!! Max Gradel? watt good player when he was fit.
------------------------------------------------
True he has made SOME good signings but even a stopped clock is right twice a day! The good signings he has made are, by far, outweighed by the turkeys he's signed. Bassone, McCartney, Paynter, Bruce, Collins, livermore, Vokes, Trundle, etc. Of the core team that played most of last season the only SG signings to shine were Max & Kasper whereas Snods, Howson, Becchio & Johnson where all at the club before he took over however the incompitant defensive unit was entirely made up of SG signings.

Don't get me wrong I'm not advocating that he should be given the boot, I'm just saying that I'm not expecting to be bowled over by our summer signings. I will be keeping my fingers crossed and praying to numourous deities from now til the transfer window closes that he proves me wrong

re in talks with smiths agent - my understanding is al is receptive to the idea of a move to Leeds and would take a significant wage cut, question is whether that would marry with tightwad Bates depiction of a decent wage ....
obviously this is a divisive move and a significant number of whites fans won't agree with me, but for what it's worth I honestly reckon Smudge will snap our hands odd - regular first team football and back where he belongs.....

Leeds United are poised to step up their long-held interest in Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Alex Smithies after calling time on Kasper Schmeichel's career at Elland Road.

Smithies is prominent on the list of possible replacements for Schmeichel following United's decision to accept a seven-figure offer from Leicester City for the Danish international.

Fraser Forster leeds' no1 choice! Schmiecel apparently being sold in the region of 1 million with the sun (source) saying forster to be signed for 1.5million. Am I the only one who thinks this is a step backwards, not even sideways?

----------------------------------------------
Don't know much about Forster except his cock up which gifted Beckford with the winner when he was on loan at Norwich! Played over 40 games for Celtic last year though so could be ok. Would have been happier with Krul but doubt he would drop to Championship or that Newcastle would let him go.

Leeds United have signed Republic of Ireland youth international goalkeeper Eric Grimes.
The 16-year-old, who has represented the Cork district at youth level, joins from Ringmahon Rangers and will up take his place on the club's scholarship scheme later this summer.
He is highly-rated and has played for his country at levels up to under-16.
United manager Simon Grayson said: "Eric is good player with good potential and he is definitely one for the future.
"This is an area we needed to strengthen in the younger age groups and Eric has a great opportunity to develop within the club's Academy system."
Eric is the first goalkeeping arrival with the summer with manager Simon Grayson having already confirmed that he has agreed a deal with one senior goalkeeper, and plans to bring in another.

whats going on at leeds?.if we dont get a decent keeper then surely a backwards move, paynter in larry's plans for next season?, can only be backup striker, but we have better at club already!, we need to sort out midfield[ie a defensive general], and back four a mess, larry says there are lots of GK and defenders out there, but if the case how comes we only get the crap ones.ie, Bruce, CONNOLLY, Bromby, and the other left back for swansea, Larry's choices in the transfer market are very poor, even if Bates behind the wages and fee's, larry must be the one to say yes, no, if not the guy is a muppet, he had 2 seasons to sort out DM, and back four, he has done ok but his choice of players are too bad to forget, have said for a while now that if we would have had a manager with better knowhow in the tranfer market and tactics the we would have been promoted by now, cos form after xmas was terrible and we could have sorted that out but larry messed up again and got livermore[joke] and bannan whohe hardly played, just dont unerstand Grayson, do you agree? {Ed015's Note - Get off his back.. In Grayson we Trust}

Are you joking?? Im a leeds fan through and through and fans like you make me sick!!! you have no idea about Leeds United.

First off as for Grayson in the transfer market? Ross McCormack, on a free, schmeichel, on a free. Both in my book brilliant bits of business. Bringing in the expirence of Andy O'Brien, another good move!

Connelly was solid last year until unfortunately he got injured, up until then he was one of our top performers!

They must no what they are doing guys, Last year when were promoted from League 1, we never invested heavily, but relied on Grayson getting the best out of what he had, he obviously saw potential. Gradel/Howson/Becchio/Somma have all improved massively in the last 12months!!

Keep the faith, Bates wouldnt let the team slip, end of the day he will need to sell up soon, the better the team , the more money he will get!!!

Lastly I'm still optomomistic about next season, the points tally we got last season would have been enough for play offs in 3 of last 4 seasons, we are only going to improve squad wise Grayson knows what he is doing.

I work for a big news paper company and this is on the back page of the Blackpool Gazette & Herald - PAUL Rachubka is set to resurrect his career at Leeds. Several clubs, including Blackburn, are believed to have made inquiries but it is Leeds who are set to complete a deal.

Believable8 Unbelievable1

22 Jun 2011 12:48:33
Everyone back off grayson! He wouldn't have sold schmeichel unless he knew he could get a suitable replacement, yes we may have "signed" rachubka but that doesn't mean he is going to be number one, also you all need to stop worrying it sounds like you all think the transfer deadline is 3pm today, guess what it isn't, the deadline is 2months away, I'd rather grayson take his time and pick the right signings rather than rush into potential flops!! I hope we sign another keeper maybe ashdown? 2 cb's as pat can't be relied on just yet, 2 centre midfielders with howson, nunez ande clayton to fill in, and maybe another striker (earnshaw)

Ed, do you think Rachubka will be 2nd or 3rd choice GK for Leeds? In my humble opinion he wil be 3rd choice, they may bring in Carson or Foster, GK's of that ilk for No. 1 and perhaps a young up and coming keeper as second choice. Any thoughts? {Ed015's Note - depends, Grayson said he had 2 or 3 keepers coming into the club, he defo wont be number 1 tho}

The guy who posted this:

22 Jun 2011 10:43:13
Ouch.
Snodgrass is off for 4m.
Schmeichel for 1.5m.
Gradel is staying.
Grayson wasnt impressed with Snodgrass input last season only returning 7 goals and had a persistent back injury.
Bates has told Grayson he can spend every penny of transfer fees recieved.
Leeds will move for Rachubka, i dont know why! Having missed out on Westwood, they are looking elsewhere for a more experienced goalkeeper. Jack Hobbs will be bought for around £1m. Woodgate, Smith and Bowyers wages will now be funded with the cash recieved from transfers, however all will be taking a huge paycut. Torsten Frings will sign. Erik lichaj will be signed permanently, as will Sanchez Watt to replace snodgrass. David Gonzalez, David Martin are interesting Grayson for Goalkeepers. Jack Cork wants first team football but he could be coming in on a season long loan if he turns down Burnley. Nick Montgomery will provide competition and cover for Smith, Bowyer and Frings. Neil Danns has agreed terms, just a medical to go. Grayson still searching high and low for a left back as well as first choice keeper.

Heard that Blackburn are letting Paul Robinson out on line if they can sign Foster from Brum, apparently they also will bid for Snodgrass and Grayson will get Robbo for a year as part of the deal.

Looks like we're gonna be going back in time a decade - who next - Dacourt, Haaland, Huckerby?

New strip to be unveiled by either Woidgate or Smith new sponsor gave the green light to discuss terns but both will have to take massive pay cuts but both feel they owe club so are seriously thinking over terms

David Stockdale is in the frame to replace kasper schmeichel, although no concrete conversation between agent and fulham have yet to take place. Grayson has been told to choose schmeichel repalcement carefully as funds are limited. {Ed015's Note - how abour not bloody selling him?}

I know David Stockdale, and he isn't coming home to Leeds as he is happy trying to break into the first team at Fulham.

whats going on at leeds?.if we dont get a decent keeper then surely a backwards move, paynter in larry's plans for next season?, can only be backup striker, but we have better at club already!, we need to sort out midfield[ie a defensive general], and back four a mess, larry says there are lots of GK and defenders out there, but if the case how comes we only get the crap ones.ie, BRUCE, CONNOLLY, BROMBY, and the other left back for swansea, Larry's choices in the transfer market are very poor, even if Bates behind the wages and fee's, larry must be the one to say yes, no, if not the guy is a muppet, he had 2 seasons to sort out DM, and back four, he has done ok but his choice of players are too bad to forget, have said for a while now that if we would have had a manager with better knowhow in the tranfer market and tactics the we would have been promoted by now, cos form after xmas was terrible and we could have sorted that out but larry messed up again and got livermore[joke] and bannan whohe hardly played, just dont unerstand Grayson, do you agree? {Ed015's Note - Get off his back.. In Grayson we Trust}

Westwood completes £30,000 a week deal with Sunderland. He will be unvailed on 1st July.(Sunderland Echo). Perhaps Given on loan for a season is a possibility however Foster probably nmore realistic target.

Ouch.
Snodgrass is off for 4m.
Schmeichel for 1.5m.
Gradel is staying.
Grayson wasnt impressed with Snodgrass input last season only returning 7 goals and had a persistent back injury.
Bates has told Grayson he can spend every penny of transfer fees recieved.
Leeds will move for Rachubka, i dont know why! Having missed out on Westwood, they are looking elsewhere for a more experienced goalkeeper. Jack Hobbs will be bought for around £1m. Woodgate, Smith and Bowyers wages will now be funded with the cash recieved from transfers, however all will be taking a huge paycut. Torsten Frings will sign. Erik lichaj will be signed permanently, as will Sanchez Watt to replace snodgrass. David Gonzalez, David Martin are interesting Grayson for Goalkeepers. Jack Cork wants first team football but he could be coming in on a season long loan if he turns down Burnley. Nick Montgomery will provide competition and cover for Smith, Bowyer and Frings. Neil Danns has agreed terms, just a medical to go. Grayson still searching high and low for a left back as well as first choice keeper.

LEE Westwood, helluva signing. His caddy can cover the near post and his golf bag can go on the far post! Thats one way to stop our leaky defence!
_____________________________________

This was my rumor been told now that that our interest has forces Sunderland hand and Craig Gordon will be/has been transfer listed. That will sway Westwood back to Sunderland.

Heard from a different source today that we are trying to do a deal to get Paul Robinson back, seems completely unbelievable to me seeing though he's Blackburn's No1 but my source seemed pretty convinced & he's been right in the past.

Leeds will be looking to sign these players

Rachubka (agreed)
No 1 keeper (Westwood??)
Right back (Lichaj??)
Centre back?? (Woodgate??)
Left back (none linked with us properly)
2 CM's (2 of Smith, Bowyer, Frings and Montgomery)

Then two loan players might be brought in from the prem, a winger and a striker if Paynter leaves in the rumoured swap deal

Leeds are bidding to sabotage Keiren Westwood's move to Sunderland after agreeing to sell their first-choice keeper Kasper Schmeichel to Leicester.

Former Carlisle United star Westwood has been heavily tipped to sign for the Black Cats on a Bosman free transfer but Leeds boss Simon Grayson wants to lure the 26-year-old to Elland Road.

The Championship outfit have accepted a £1.5 million offer from Leicester for Schmeichel after Grayson claimed the Dane was unlikely to sign a contract extension. Schmeichel denied that he wanted to leave but seems destined for the Walkers Stadium.

Grayson is a long-time admirer of Republic of Ireland keeper Westwood and will launch an ambitious late bid to persuade the out-of-contract Coventry star to remain in the second tier.

The ex-Carlisle gloveman is well known to Leeds fans from his time with the Blues, with Westwood starring in the clubs' play-off semi-final clash in 2008.

Reports in the north-east maintain the former Blues hero remains likely to join Steve Bruce's Premier League side. (Source: News and Star)
