Adam smith returning to spurs

Believable17 Unbelievable30

If he does go back then I think it will be because Warnock feels he has better fullbacks at the club already, unless Andros Townsend needs someone to keep him company when he doesnt get in the Spurs team

Agree0 Disagree0

NW getting rid of all loans, 1-3 players to be BOUGHT.

Agree0 Disagree0

If he goes back its more than likely home sickness been away from family for a while now .he will probably fancy his chances in the first team at spurs .i dont see who is better than smith at Leeds in the RB position . we have Connelly , lees , Bruce and lees that can play there

Agree0 Disagree0

How can 1-3 players be bought when transfer windows is shut?

all we can get is free transfers and loans!

Agree0 Disagree0

You can bring players in on loan, with perminant deal in summer when window opens, like we did with Pugh in January, the loan players going back were never going to sign for us, they only came for game time

Agree0 Disagree0

Glad to see the loan players are being sent back to their respective clubs. To a man every loan player we have has done nothing to show they are Championship quality, let alone Premier League quality. Let NW get in players that will make a difference.

Agree0 Disagree0

Adam smith can't play for any other side this season so why would he go back you muppet!

Agree0 Disagree0

Andros Townsend has joined Birmingham on loan for rest of season this afternoon. Pathetic individual better off without him, the rules need changing so players cant do this, but having said that it is exactly what Adam Smith did to MK Dons to join us. We are better off without all these loan players because when push comes to shove their heart isnt in it. I would send O'Dear back too if we can and a shame SG signed Pugh on a deal because we could have sent him packing too. Warnock is right we only need players who want to play for us !!

Agree0 Disagree0

Why Pugh?

Think he been a good signing can playing in 3 diffrent postion also when neil dose get his first 11 sorted he will make a great sub covering 3 postion win win for me!

Agree0 Disagree0

Smith can play for other teams anyway, you can play for 2 whilst on loan. How else could Townsend play for Birmingham when he's represented Spurs and us otherwise!

Agree0 Disagree0

Because smith played for mk dons and then us this season..... Get a grip

Agree0 Disagree0

I play for the academy and he wasn't in the squad to travel down in

Agree0 Disagree0

Any thoughts now from the guy who called me a muppet?

Brown to be captain for Portsmouth game

Believable8 Unbelievable36

I think he'll make Snoddy captain, with his new free role NW clearly rates him, u may as well make ure best player captain. {Ed013's Note - I agree}

Agree0 Disagree0

Snodgrass should be captain. He leads by example & in a new free role should do wonders (hopefully). Brown will be in and out of the team

Agree0 Disagree0

Never rated brown, he was a panic signing at the time, can't last 90 mins.
Snods need to be made captain and offered a new deal, along with Clayton and White, these players could have massive futures at ER under Warnock

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldn't make snoddy captain ,it will get in the way of his game and he will be playing the wrong role really . captain wants to be someone that can see the whole game and can get there voice across to everyone on the pitch at 90% of the game .so for me it would have to be a CB(o'brien) or a CM (clayton) . NW will probably bring in a player on loan with the intention of signing them on perm deal in summer and that will be captain next season

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree about a CB or CM captain - I'm never convinced that wingers make good captains, as the normally have a different mentality and approach to the ame than what you need from a captain (although Strachan proved a strong exception).

At the moment though, none of our players in those positions (in my opinion) are ready for captaincy. I think that Lees and Clayton have potential, but are too inexperienced to lead the team at the moment. I wouldn't have O'Brien as captain - they're meant to set an example, not refuse to play when they're a little under the weather.

Perhaps he'll bring in on loan a captain - Derry? Hill?

Agree0 Disagree0

A little under the weather? ed please have a word with this clown!! {Ed020's Note - i would'nt class depression as under the weather, clearly that statement has come from someone whose not directly suffered from it.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree, CB or CM captain. Wingers need to concentratre on their own game. personally i think Lonergan is a good captain, for now. New captain for next season, Fitz Hall maybe? or Clint Hill

Agree0 Disagree0

A little under the weather? What sort of comment it this as AO was suffering with depression. Lots of people suffer with this illness at some point in their life! Rich or poor

Agree0 Disagree0

A little under the weather? He was suffering from depression you muppet, two very different things! I think that maybe you are feeling a little bit under the weather to suggest that we should bring in Derry or Hill on loan & make either one of them captain. By the sound of it you know as little about football as you do about the illness.

Agree0 Disagree0

I back Snodgrass for captaincy before but If OB is going to play week in week out, I think he's the obvious choice til the end of the season at least. He's bags of experience and been around, the young ones at the back could learn a thing or two from him.
Would definitely like to see Fitz Hall join on loan.

Leeds linked to signing Medhi Abeid from Newcastle, he has been granted permission to leave on loan, and Doncaster Rovers are also interested in signing him. Source Doncaster Today.

Believable22 Unbelievable10

Too inexperienced for Leeds. We need Leaders in midfield and not 19 year olds.

Agree0 Disagree0

As THE Don said if he's good enough he's old enough!

Andros Townsend is returning to Tottenham as he is unhappy at Leeds.
Birmingham are said to have expressed their interest in signing the winger.

Warnock seperating the wheat from the chaff already.

Agree0 Disagree0

Good - time to get settled. we dont need players who dont want to play

Agree0 Disagree0

I like NW response to Townsend leaving. "I'm disappointed because we've lost a player, but I don't want people who don't want to be here so good riddance I say if that's what he wants to do."

Agree0 Disagree0

Glad he's gone, maybe we can get a player in now who wants to play for us, he left so he can go to birmingpam lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets hope he sorts out some of the 'permanent' players too then....

Agree0 Disagree0

Love NW's response! Thats more like the Leeds mentality!

Agree0 Disagree0

I like this and I like warnocks reaction, about time we got rid of all these loan 'stars' albeit he chose to end the loan.

With him and Delph gone it should free up some wages and squad places for some decent players who want to actually play for leeds united.

CB and Cm would be nice over the next few days with a view to permanent deals.

Agree0 Disagree0

I wish O'Dea would do the same. Hopefully Sam and Rogers can show what they're capable of now - if Sam can show the potential he did at the start of last year then we've got ourselves a proper player. Just needs to get into his groove. I

Agree0 Disagree0

The only thing we will miss from this is his pace. Apart from that he was just a greedy big time charlie. See ya!

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock was looking at Sam when he was at Charlton, maybe he will be able to get the best out of him, as for Townsend he always looked like he was in it for himself there. He doesnt wanna play for us then f*** him i am not the least bit disappointed

Agree0 Disagree0

I think white is a good enough player to play down wing if u want pace but i think we need to be playing a player that has some control and skill . lets see if Rogers can get a start soon and hope hes as good as hes rated by Jurgen Klinsmann

Agree0 Disagree0

Wont go on too much as all covered in posts above , but good NW is right we dont want or need loan players who aren't up for it !

Agree0 Disagree0

I've always been against warnock, alwas thought he was a b*stard, but with comments like these hes starting to feel like our b*stard.

I'm REALLY warming to him.

Agree0 Disagree0

'With comments like this, he's starting to be our b**tard'.I wonder if the reaction will be the same the next time Ken Bates gives a similar reaction to a player leaving, as he has many times in the past then been slated for.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh poor little Andros! Nasty Neil making you do a bit of work, and you been left on the bench? Poor little southern spoilt brat! As NW says, good riddance. See if you like Birmingham any better!
