Tate for me is an excellent signing considering our situation. Always liked him as a player at Swansea.
Welcome to our great club. Lets support the new signings.

January should be a very exciting month for Leeds fans. Who will be the marquee signing or signings? Who will be our first million pound purchase for like 8 years??

Believable38 Unbelievable18

Keep grounded mate. We don't know how rich GFH are yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

Theyre rich mate

Agree0 Disagree0

It's not gfh it's a Bahraini royal.

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont care if we get 8 players who are bosmans or loans as long as they wear the shirt with pride and give 110% every game. Let snot forget that money does not buy results, but hardwork does, we don't want to be left with a lazy big head who likes picking up his weekly cheque while being poor on the pitch.
I think Warnock will spend wisely though!

Agree1 Disagree0

Its not a Royal either he/they are member(s) of the Government over there.

Agree0 Disagree0

We don't need million pound players, just players who want to play for us. Just because a player costs millions doesn't mean they are going to be good. Brolin and Sharpe spring to mind

Agree0 Disagree0

This bahraini royal carrys more money in his back pocket than what ken bates has in is account!

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd like to see Mackail-Smith, Boyd and possibly some experienced Premiership players looking for a late challenge - as with Strachan and Fairclough. Bellamy, Harte and Kevin Davies have all done will in the division.

Agree1 Disagree0

So is it gfh back by the bahraini king? hope so! these players will get us by till jan then get some more qualiity covering all area's and really push for the playoffs!

Agree0 Disagree0

Hmmmm. Lets not get carried away; Portsmouth, Birmingham, Blackburn.. The list of bad foreign takeovers is far longer than the list of good ones.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think its about the mass amounts of money its about spending it wisely. Warnock has tended to spend well in the past without going mental.

I think maybe 6 quality yet shrewd signings maximum 5m spent in January.
Last think I want is them to spend loads then sod off like some foreign owners.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the money available will be evaluated depending on our position and chances come January. There's no point spending big and paying wages when we have little to no chance of making the play-offs. Hopefull this wont be the case and I assume we would be looking at signing Diouf and Tonge. Depending on how the new guys work out they may also stay. On top I would expect maybe 2 other purchases but with more substantial fees than we have become a custom.

Also I believe Bahrain royals are also the government. As each prince seams to be a department head. Not sure if any are related to this deal but as long whomever it is has plenty of cash I'm ok with it.

Agree0 Disagree0

I know at last we can look forward to team strengthening,and not on the cheap.
TS

Agree0 Disagree0

If a Bahrain billionair has taken over the club why would he hide behind a relatively small finance company,people should calm down and get a grip,this is good news yes, but this is not an Abramovich type take over.

Agree0 Disagree0

Still doom and gloom merchants, since when were GHF a small finance co, and who said he's hiding, he's a royal,worth billions, you ever thought it might not be the correct protocol to go shouting about buying the club you support, what an person

Agree0 Disagree0

Jonny howson and iago falque are possibililities

Agree0 Disagree0

Charlie Austin and Zaha would be the dream marquee signings,but both prob heading straight to Prem. Mackail-Smith and Boyd both realistic. Don't want too many more oldies. Talented players with plenty of match-hardened experience, but who are still on the way up are the best (like Pearce). By the way, the individual behind GFH is neither royal nor government, but they are are 'close' to the govt. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

Howson wasn't good enough to get us out of this division when he was here before, what makes you think he'd be good enough now? He's not exactly set the world alight at Norwhich either

Agree0 Disagree0

For me Mackael-Smith is exactly the type of player we need...Quick, doesn't give defenders a rest and works hard. Would be good if we could get Tate and Thomas permanent.Also need 2 more full backs, Peltier is awful and White isn't much better. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 19:38:08
Leeds have aloud Lewis turner on loan at harrogate town and Nathan has gone on loan at Chester

Believable16 Unbelievable4

That's not good they should be the start of a new back bone for the club keep the young bin the old

Agree1 Disagree0

Can only do the lads a world if good!

Agree1 Disagree0

These two were in the year above me at primary and high school. Still can't believe they play for Leeds! The loans will do the lads a load of good getting first team football

Agree0 Disagree0

Could understand if they'd gone to half decent clubs?

Can't think Warnock will actually be saving much financially?

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 16:49:21
Jerome thomas signs till jan, along with alan tate ! glad about Tate great defender did well at swans club captain too and looking at some footage of jerome he is quick and direct just what becchio needs !

Believable46 Unbelievable6

Just got a text say we signed kenwyne jones aswell! is this true?

Agree0 Disagree4

Both good loan signings should help us to start getting some positive results

Agree0 Disagree1

At last a quality winger! Really positive signing this. Becchio will love balls in from him.
Very happy lufc fan.
MOT!

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 16:43:10
jerome thomas signed from west brom leeds o/s

Believable27 Unbelievable7

22 Nov 2012 16:10:41
jerome thomas just signed! OS- MOT!

Believable22 Unbelievable7

Why do people press the unbelievable button when something is quite clearly a fact.
Unless they think there is an Australian player out there called Os Mot and Jerome Thomas has not signed him, so in their head they are correct.
MOT roll on January

Agree0 Disagree3

Is he a striker or a midfielder? {Ed013's Note - Left Winger}

Agree1 Disagree0

Quick,tricky winger

Agree0 Disagree0

Happy with that, felt thats was a position we lacked in depth! hope he's good as we need stand out talent in the squad

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 15:45:02
Rumour it is Jerome Thomas not Cameron Jerome coming in on lloan

Believable21 Unbelievable6

Signed on os now.

Agree0 Disagree0

Confirmed on OS that Jerome Thomas is with us until Jan. Another experienced Premier player to add to our tired and under strength squad
In NW we must trust MOT......

Agree1 Disagree1

Jerome Thomas has signed so some much needed quality added

Agree0 Disagree1

OS has confirmed that Jerome Thomas has signed

Agree0 Disagree1

Jerome Thomas an excellent addition
I'm impressed

Agree0 Disagree1

Signed.

Sez so on SSN

fatfreddyscat

Agree0 Disagree1

He,s signed till jan also alan tate

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Nov 2012 15:25:45
Jerome Thomas next to sign - not Cameron Jerome!

Believable19 Unbelievable6

Yep thats my understanding too, can play wide or down the middle. Normally operates on the left wing

Agree0 Disagree0

Done deal on OS.....

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Nov 2012 15:22:08

Leeds os we have now signed Alan Tate until January. Bring in the premiership players sounds like a fine start from GFH. Keep it up now!

lloydyboy2012

Believable9 Unbelievable6

He's Propper sh#t mate no better than drury . Sorry boys but this guy is nothing to get excited about .

Agree0 Disagree0

Which person clicks the "unbelievable" button when someone posts a fact!

Agree0 Disagree3

Gonna get loads of jealous fans saying anyone we get is rubbish, so funny, lol, but we don't care because we are RICH {Ed003's Note - Good lord}

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 15:09:32
just signed alan tate from swansea on website now

Believable11 Unbelievable6

This is the guy who slated Leeds over the attempt to get back the 15 point penalty. Happy to give him a chance to prove himself but you have to wonder how committed he will be.

Agree0 Disagree0

Noted on YEP: 30yr old 6ft 1in Central Defender. This position was NW priority with Pearce suspended. At least its better than getting a midfielder to play out of position in this role. Not that we have enough bods in the team to even contemplate playing anyone out of position.

Agree0 Disagree0

Solid player who has sound leadership qualities.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 15:06:51
we singed alan tate denfender swansea i believe on leeds web site take a look for self no lie its true he 30yr may be also jerome soon too

Believable13 Unbelievable6

Think this is great news, He is quite a good player. will do till jan Gj

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 14:59:46
Ive heard jerome, Tate and Mcgugan are all signing on loan with view to permanant in January. Dont know how reliable these rumours are but all 3 would be great signings and not on high wages either.

leedsfanforever {Ed013's Note - Tate confirmed}

Believable11 Unbelievable8

Now so is Thomas!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 14:38:04
just heard that we have signed jerome and taite!!

M.O.T

good times are coming back!

Believable18 Unbelievable13

First one in the bag Tate arrives on OS! bring on the rest

Agree0 Disagree0

ALAN TATE HAS SIGNED - NO SIGN OF JEROME

Agree1 Disagree0

Heard tate but where you hear jerome?

MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Tate definitely. Its on the OS. Haven't seen confirmation about Jerome yet though.
KMOTTR
Thats me trying to type MOT with fingers crossed.

J (Rothwell White).

Agree0 Disagree0

Taits a definite,on ssn. Mrc1919.

Agree0 Disagree0

Another 30 year old so much for a good ball playing midfielder {Ed020's Note - just to tide us over till jan!!! have faith!!! }

Agree0 Disagree0

He is a good defender and will give 100 percent good attitude

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't believe we still have persons moaning about our loanees, tate is a solid central defender, which we need

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 14:38:03
i know someone who works for the club and i can assure you that oriel romeu from chelsea is going to sign on a loan deal until the end of the season. Believe it or not but it is hapening today.

Believable8 Unbelievable32

Lol that wnt ever happen. for 1 hes not very good now, yes he will b in 1 or 2 years but as its only a loan we need players for now n he aint it. n for 2 he would b mad to drop down when teams like malaga want him

Agree0 Disagree0

It won't happen for 1 good reason: its an emergency loan window, you can't do end of season loans FACTu

Agree0 Disagree0

Benitez comes in today and already he knows the team well enough to farm this guy out ? Your having a laugh mate. SIMPLY WONT HAPPEN....... 'Keep playing FIFA manager'

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 14:11:05
why did warnocks interview say it was too late for loans, yet clockwatch say hes asked about 33 diff loans, but only 24 contacted him back?

Believable11 Unbelievable5

Only 24?? lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats why I posted Warnock said it was too late for loans, but now everybody saying were getting this and that seems very strange to me 2 hours to go before deadline closes Gj

Agree0 Disagree0

I think there has been a misunderstanding. This is an emergency loan period which allows short term loan and not full season. NW must have been referring to long loan and not short term emergency cover for loss of PEARCE, AUSTIN injured and lack of fitness MAC. These signings will provide cover for Dec and then we have the transfer window open for general trade when NW will wheel and deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe a smokescreen ?? Keep people off the scent so to speak !!
2 prem players on loan till jan so far and decent ones too !! What's everyone else's thoughts thus far ??
Ed's ?

Leeds for life mot....

According to the forest page we're battling them for the signing of the zakuani of Peterborough, he was asking what mot stood for on persontet today so could be TRUE.
A very happy white from hunslet

Believable9 Unbelievable9

I meant tw**ter, dont know what my phone did tbh
A white from hunslet

Agree0 Disagree0

This could be true as NW is a admirer of his. read this quite a few months ago.

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 12:08:15
Cameron Jerome will sign on a 3 month loan today!

Believable9 Unbelievable9

Wrong Jerome mate - Ha ha ha!!

22 Nov 2012 11:56:40

22 Nov 2012 11:25:05
Hi everyone, some great nes yesterday...finally, now some even better news, ive heard on the grapevine that david silvas a very good player but doesnt want to come to leeds, also heard we want george boyd loan to full, SWP loan full season but can be recalled also joe cole to be signed on loan, obviously we cant afford all of his wages, but NW is aparently interested!

Believable8 Unbelievable15

Just finished repairing sum lights at Thorpe arch

No idea who but looking like 2 loans coming in today

Believable23 Unbelievable12

Cameron Jerome is one!

Agree0 Disagree0

Are Somma, Bromby, Nunez and Austin all being treated in the dark? No wonder that nobody ever seems to come back

Agree1 Disagree0

Alan Tate is definitely one of them.

Agree0 Disagree0

I was having a rubbish in the elland road toilets when Neil warnock come in and told me that we were signing two players today. At least I think it was Neil warnock because for some reason the lights weren't working.

Agree0 Disagree0

Apparently Neil Warnock has said it's too late to get anyone in so will have to wait for signing's & loan signing's in January now.....gutted! We need some new faces to freshen things up & push for the play-offs!

Agree0 Disagree0

I was cleaning warnocks office when he walked in n said wahaay the takeover is complete to which i replied who you buying n warnock said " ting tong makka dang dang" to which i replied who is that n warnock replied its a good player who gives us that little bit extra lmao

Agree0 Disagree0

Love the banter on here, but im the origional poster, one loan defo in, the medical guy defo said 2

Agree0 Disagree0

2nd signing in ....i thank you.

Agree0 Disagree0

Makes a change for someone to come through with some facts - cheers!

Agree0 Disagree0

22 Nov 2012 10:49:01
