Some good players on that list. I'd take the proverbial out of Heskey like everyone else because in all fairness he deserves it but the truth is he'd destroy this league with his power. I guarantee you every manager in this league would want him, he's a nightmare for defenders.
Shoots like he's allergic to scoring but Ross, Snodgrass, Clayton etc would have a field day feeding off him

Agree0 Disagree0

Whats with all the ex playes on that list?? Harding, Richardson, Smith, Derry and Gradel...somehow I think not

Agree0 Disagree0

He was posting all the players that have been rumoured in so far pal.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think we could do with someone like Derry also I would not mind vargen moen on a free?

Agree0 Disagree0

Vargen Moen - play football manager much do ya?? What about Crespo and Rivaldo - they're both cheap too (on FM!!)

Agree0 Disagree0

Everyone gives Heskey far too much stick! yes he's not a goalscorer, yes he falls over far too easy but everything else that he could bring to the team would be invaluable! If a deal could be done with Heskey id be over the moon. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Think you live in a fantasy world mate,i would say about 75% of them lot have never been and never will be linked with the club

Agree0 Disagree0

I have seen Heskey play very well for England never mind the championship. Not a great goal scorer but would be cut above anything else in the division for creating chances ans bringing other players into the game. Remember we are not talking about the premiership here. We could, and have, do a lot worse.

Dont want to sound negative pearce Cb bought from club relagated
Lonners bought from relagated club
Robo nearly dead
Oh dear bring on next season

Believable5 Unbelievable30

What you need is some Omega 3 in your diet to assist in you having a more positive outlook on life

Agree0 Disagree0

That's funny because looking at the seasons stats currently pompy have conceding less at home than west ham, and less away than b'pool and b'ham, and of course have a better defensive record than us.
Seems like the only competition lonners had was Bromby so NW will have to do something now which will only be a good thing.
I'm optimistic NW will build a solid defence in summer! Its exciting times MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Lonergan also won prestons player of the year 3 times. just because a team gets relegated doesnt mean they dont have good players.

Agree0 Disagree0

Charlie Adam was sensational at Blackpool the season they went down.
Also Pompey have had a 10 pt deduction!

Agree0 Disagree0

Look at the players leeds had when they went down... alan smith went to man utd... so just cos you get relegated doesnt mean there isnt decent players in your side... MOT {Ed020's Note - from what i remember we had a completly differant squad. we brought in the likes of julien jochim and danny pugh}

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah coz the team gettin relegated means that every player is bad. Look at scott parker. Lonners has had a good season here aswell.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lonergan is the best keeper we've had since Robbo. Quit moaning.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lonergan the best keeper since Robbo? is everyone forgetting Neil Sullivan?

Agree0 Disagree0

Lonners best keeper since Sullivan, who was best keeper since Martyn. Never rated Robinson due him giving the ball straight back to the opposition everytime he got hold of it. Scored a good goal though!

Agree0 Disagree0

a mate of mine told me yesterday that the player neil warnock wants to sign on may the 5th is matt mills, my mate is a leicester fan and said this is the rumour going round the king power stadium, aparently a deal was almost agreed in february for leeds to take mills on loan but the main obsticle was injuries in the leicester squad and pearson didnt want to let him go incase he reluctantly had to play him if the first choice defenders got injured, he also said the pricetag wouldnt be an issue for leeds to buy mills as there is a deal in line for a leeds player plus cash. leeds4life

Whitbread to be club captain with snodgrass
Going in oppo direct with a 3.00million fee for our war chest you heard it here first.

Believable13 Unbelievable29

Whitbread is a free agent in summer

Agree0 Disagree0

2 club captains? thats normal, vice captain maybe also where is your evidence?

Agree0 Disagree0

If you read the post it states "Snodgrass going the other way" plus 3 million for Zak Whitbread. So there wont be 2 captains !

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok then fair enough lol but where is the evidence? You cant act high and mighty with a flawed guess

Agree0 Disagree0

Not true, Nw has stated he wants snod to be captain next season and get us back to the prem where he will sign a new deal !

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe snodgrass has decided to move on u never know with leeds i hope he hasn't but if he has id rather take a straight 5-8 mil for him

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would we give them Snoddy when Whitbread's out of contract in the summer?

Agree0 Disagree0

I think its pretty clear that snoddy is waiting to sign the contract he's been offered, when he knows who NW is bringing in, and what our chances of promotion are.

Agree0 Disagree0

Whitbread has a long history of injuries & therefore no more useful than o'brien or bruce are to us now. we need a consistant pairing at the back week in week out, no more crocks please!

Agree0 Disagree0

My mates just seen Emile Heskey at Leeds train station with Shaun Harvey. Potential signing?

Believable11 Unbelievable47

Heard the same thing, finalising the deal this week. Announcement to be made at the Leicester game

Agree0 Disagree0

I think he was with Enoch Showunmi as well, now that is a strike force.

Agree0 Disagree0

Here we go the silly season is about to start

Agree0 Disagree0

What was he doing? Waving a flag and blowing his whistle?

Agree0 Disagree0

If he was there to catch a train knowing Heskey he would have missed it

Agree0 Disagree0

Good call last post, very funny, Enoch?
"what's that post coming over the hill? Is it more nonsence, is it more nonsence?"
Behave people.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds will sign nobody this summer knowing our luck

Agree0 Disagree0

5th poster - nice. heskey is probably on 25k a week, not that we want him anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

How were they getting from the Train Station to Elland Road? A bendy bus!?

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish, if only on the grounds that Shaun Harvey was seen outside in daylight without imploding in a ball of flames!

Agree0 Disagree0

As if top flight footballers (hate to admit heskey is) would use public transport. I wouldn't if earned my salary on a weekly basis. We dont want heskey, is he an improvment on becchio? we want to add pace!

Agree0 Disagree0

Heskey was just changing trains to get to Stirling for a trial with East Stirling. Shaun Harvey was going to London to sign Lionel Messi for a season long loan.

Agree0 Disagree0

I love the silly season....heard Stuart Pearce also looking to take him to the Euro's also...

Come on, serious posts only, Leeds do their transfer in the quiet, hardly quiet bringing him up on the train straight through the middle of Leeds, then waiting for a taxi to get to Thorpe Arch....

Agree0 Disagree0

Paul Robinson will be the confirmed signing that is revealed on the 1st of may

Believable20 Unbelievable36

Really hope not, need people with a bit more youth tbh

Agree0 Disagree0

Firstly, Warnock wouldn't be making such a big deal of this signing if it was someone we already have on loan. Also, almost every news source is saying Pearce was the initial target he said was close to signing, so it's possible he's already signed by this point.

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock did say there are 2 players that will be signing in the first week of may. so both of these could be true

Agree0 Disagree0

If its the LB then thats not good
If its the CB then he might be of some use
If its the GK then were starting well with the revamp. Hope if Blackburn get relegated he will return as he's a great keeper

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds to make a move for Wigan striker Connor Sammon for a fee of 300k

Believable13 Unbelievable32

Connor Sammon is worth more than that, much more! Yeah he might not score many but his work rate and all other aspects of him game are brilliant, much like a young Heskey.

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldnt even waste another min, for 300k, I'd regard him as a must have. Good player, fast, strong, works hard, quite skillful.

Agree0 Disagree0

Monty Gimple to Barcelona for £1.5m?

Believable14 Unbelievable49

23 Apr 2012 10:57:30
heard leeds would be due £1.5mil compensation if white leaves (source nufcblog)...if howson is worth £2m then let him go!

According to 'The Sun', Jason Pearce has agreed a deal to come to Elland Road at the end of the season. That'll do for starters. I'm beginning to get excited about who we might bring in over the summer now! MOT!

Believable38 Unbelievable7

Said that, it will be the first signing on or before the 7th may, then one from clingan and green!

Agree0 Disagree0

The daft geordies doubled his wages and he rejected teh offer....cant see uncle ken meetin his demands

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe he rejected double wages because he didn't want to play for a club in administration in League 1 (so he might have even had a situation like at Rangers), when there were offers coming in for him to play in the Championship.

Agree0 Disagree0
