52 minutes ago – LEEDS UNITED have moved to hi-jack Rangers bid to land Enar Jaager – as Dutch midfielder Luigi Bruins jets in to try and win a deal at Ibrox

Believable17 Unbelievable9

It's just his agent using leeds as a hurry up for rangers,its says he would prefer rangers but because he hasn't heard anything since last wed.Agents are very clever like that they think I know we will make public leeds are interested then that will give rangers the kick up the arse,I'm not saying leeds are not interested but he will end up at rangers guaranteed.

Agree0 Disagree0

According to his agent.... who might that be then! mr p n ochio

Agree0 Disagree0

Enar Jääger is an Estonian right-back not a Dutch midfielder and it's just a rumour according to Wiki.

Enar Jääger to join having agreed a two and half year contract according to his agent. {Ed020's Note - apparantly according to wiki!!)

Believable21 Unbelievable4

It was announced on the 23rd of january that michael southwell was to join Leeds on the 24th having agreed a two and half year contract according to his agent. fee round about 47.9 million... To me that sounds like a load of s**t

Agree0 Disagree0

Utter s**te, very funny, the SPL needs poor players and he should remain within this woeful standard

Agree0 Disagree0

Changed already, the person who did the inital edit probably realised it was very funny.

It was announced on the 23rd of january that Jääger was to join Leeds on the 24th having agreed a two and half year contract according to his agent.
probs a load of bull but who nows Enar Jaager may come to us instead of Rangers.

Believable12 Unbelievable6

Enar is a cracking player, he is a hybrid of Mel Sterland and Gary Kelly, and they were pretty good. If we have now descended down the bring former players back, (Haaland, Duberry, Smith, Woods....), the one I would have back in a thrice is Simon Walton, and as an asides, Jerrel as a coach for the strikers.

Agree0 Disagree0

Behave,walton is playing at the right level,to be honest he's lucky at that,seen better at farsley celtic

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2012 18:52:43
according to wiki Enar Jaager has signed for us.

Believable13 Unbelievable3

For £47.9M and he's actually called michael southwell!

Agree0 Disagree0

Wiki edited yet again and guess what, no mention of Leeds and £47.9m, wonder what happened to michael southwell?

ive heard that rumour about Alan Smith today pay as you play.....from a player from Hull CIty very reliable friend of mine.

Believable17 Unbelievable11

Yawn....please please please stop, we don't want such a useless player who was never ever a decent player anyway. why you smith lovers go on and on about this guy is beyond me.

Agree0 Disagree0

Never ever a decent player?! You've clearly never watched him then. As hard working as them come and a motivator, could work wonders on the squad just by being amongst them. If we can get him on a good deal then it'll be beneficial for everyone at the club and give us options we currently don't have.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well if it is true i hope for the lads sake he earns 20 pence this season.. and not a bit more

Agree0 Disagree0

Wow!! delph now smith, duberry, bakke, beckford and bowyer maybe we can look at getting viduka out of retirement, robinson may be tempted, ooh how about clarke putting his boots on again and perhaps giles. Come on guys we dont need these ones that left for "better things" lets get real for a change!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Does anyone know if leeds are still interested in La Galaxys midfielder chris birchall be a good signing for us, hes a good player.

Agree0 Disagree0

He was rank rotten and only those who liked him for coming from Leeds and looking like a nice boy say otherwise.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah you're right, he must have been 'rank rotten' to have scored on his debut at Anfield and to have played for England. You've obviously a Newcastle fan, get on to your own page.

Agree0 Disagree0

Who's your mate and why would we believe him? ;) either way I back anyone who gives 100 per cent for the shirt he was never a pacy player that wasnt his game even as a striker, we just need some passion back in the side atm not saying hes the answer just that we should consider it..providing it is genuinely a pay as you play. I await the abuse!

Agree0 Disagree0

Just to clarify that the above mentioned players did not all leave for something better. Where the hell has Dubbery ended up, certainly not a bigger or better club then leeds. Smith only left because the club needed to sell him, he would still be here otherwise. Bowyer never went to a bigger club then leeds, nor did bakke.

I wish people would lay of smith, if he came back and made a success of it you'd all be saying how great he was. Just petty and pathetic! Grow up and get a life. I'd love to see him back!

Agree0 Disagree0

Ahh,and this would be common knowledge amongst the hull team of course,same as all the leeds players know who hull are about to sign....what a muppet,anyways stop lying people like you prob don't have any mates..what with you being a bs liar

Agree0 Disagree0

Smith back to leeds ffs overated first time round giles would be a better signing

Agree0 Disagree0

Smith back would suit me. I havent been to ER for over 2 years now. But i would definately go to cheers smithy back.
All the haters obviously dont realise any of the clubs circumstances bk then.

Agree0 Disagree0

leeds set to sign french centre back from lille toby le rones half a mil

Believable11 Unbelievable10

Thought he was Swiss. Big bloke, mountainous! {Ed003's Note - You'd be cuckoo to believe that load of muesli }

Agree0 Disagree0

Very funny - take it we will be paying him in swiss chocolate

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought toby le rones was swiss and shaped like a triangle?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah true Toby Le Rones and his team mate Filip Flop!

Agree0 Disagree0

Would've been funnier if we were signing him from L.A Galaxy. Signing Richard T Bisket and Geoff Hackake from (Cad) Bury.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't forget the Dutch winger we're chasing Albert Van Hire !

Agree0 Disagree0

Very good, hard to break down. Can play in neat triangles and available at all duty free

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2012 17:18:13
Imagine this. We beat Brum in next game. Next set of fixtures look very winnable. I wonder what type of posts we'll see on this site.

Believable8 Unbelievable7

The win at Birmingham is a very important must win game . roll on may when we are celebrating promotion

Agree0 Disagree0

Good point, I think March will be the make-or-break month. 7 league matches, most against teams there or thereabouts. Let's hope we are still in the mix by the end of that month. If so we'll be in with a shout. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

We could quite easily lose the next 6 fixtures also, nothing is a given in the championship.

Agree0 Disagree0

But then look at march, they look very loseable

Agree0 Disagree0

As we all know, the easy looking games are just as big a stumbling block as the tough ones...even at home this term!

Agree0 Disagree0

I wonder what next year in the prem would be like with this team. think we'll get a point

23 Jan 2012 16:23:37 just appeared on Chelsea's forum and on another football gossip website ed u heard any thing about this rumour
Word has it ken bates and roman abramovic are having meetings about a possible swap deal involving Chelsea and Leeds as abramovic is sick of the attitudes of the Chelsea players and wants a new challenge in football however the deal has hit a stumbling block has roman is wanting 100 million pounds from bates as part of the deal {Ed020's Note - sounds crazy, and too good to be true. bit of common sense says its not true. but we can hope}

Believable11 Unbelievable21

Oh dear oh dear lol up the dose of whatever you are on !!!

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the author of this rumour has had something stronger than RED BULL.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the author of this rumour has drank something far stronger than RED BULL!

Agree0 Disagree0

Y was ken bates at the Chelsea game Saturday can't see looking at torres gonna bring him to leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

I want to thank this poster after the past week of dismal news filtering out of elland road finally something made me laugh

Agree0 Disagree0

This is so randomly over the top and laugh-out-loud funny that it could actually be true! I love it,

Agree0 Disagree0

How much did you pay for whatever your smoking? can you also send some my way so i can also live in a dream world.

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope so. LOVE LEEDS, HATE BATES. At least we would have a transfer budget.

I posted the bit about the council owning ER, looked on wilki and teak trading corpoation own it, no other info so who Knows who these people are. Sorry for wrong info as the charming guy put it I must have a thick head, obviously he has been to Pappa Smurfs school of how to win friends and influence people.

Believable2 Unbelievable4

Teak Trading co bought elland road in 2007
and were investigated by customs when they did they are based in the British virgin
islands

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2012 23:59:15
There you go, bare in mind papa smurf doesnt earn anything from leeds united, wat a load of crap, asset stripping, tax dodging c**t, 25 yr lease at 1.5 mill rent per year tax free works out at 37.5 mill return in his lifetime

bvi-grey-area.offshore-journals.com/leeds-united-wishes-to-buyback-the-stadium-purchased-by-the-british-virgin-islands-corporation-51.html

Teak trading = Ken Bates why else would he spend £7 million on a stand he dont own?????

Just been for a beer at billys bar. Alan Smith was sat at the table next to me with some suits. From what I over heard he's lining up a move to come back on a pay as you play deal. Set to be announced next week.

Believable16 Unbelievable25

I have just recieved an excited text from a friend that works in Billy's Bar saying Alan had been in with a couple of guys "in suits" - He seemed to think it was his agent and a rep from Leeds. Perhaps there is more to this than anticpated? {Ed020's Note - and the plot thickens}

Agree0 Disagree0

No you weren't and no he wasn't . . I'm pretty sure any business would take place at Thorpe Arch and not Elland Road and if it were at Elland Road I'm pretty sure they'd use conference rooms to conduct such business and not the pub.

Agree0 Disagree0

Funny that, i had a dream last night of Smithy back playing for Leeds. he also had a considerable beer gut.

Agree0 Disagree0

What the original poster meant to say was, that he saw 'a' Smith in Billy's! Surely therefore it was John Smith and/or Samuel Smith?

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh and you got so excited you forgot to take a photo on your mobile to post it as proof...not sure even we have stooped so far that we conduct transfers in a bar!

Agree0 Disagree0

I am open to any ideas what Alan Smith would bring to the Leeds team apart from a nasty snarling attitude, yellow and red cards, certainly not goals, his record when he was a striker was terrible, maybe he could play centre back and instead of clearing the ball upfield, try to score an OG, he would never hit the net, then at least the rest of the team could get back to defend the corner

Agree0 Disagree0

If that was believable you'd put up a picture lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Youre not the first one to suggest this either

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair the poster wasnt suggesting that talks were happening in the bar just that he was there, he may well have been enjoying a quiet drink after talking to people at Thorp Arch but I doubt it!

Have you heard anything Ed? I havent! Newcastle fans tell me unless he takes a considerable wage cut he will be running his contract down {Ed020's Note - not heard a thing other than whats been posted today!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

And to the person posting the beer gut jibe he doesnt drink lol
just saying

Agree0 Disagree0

Funny how you managed to hear it was on a pay on display deal- is he going to manage the carpark?

Agree0 Disagree0

Pay as you play deal? If only that was in place in the Ridsdale/O'Leary days, the club would have saved a fortune, he did not play well, tell me he was not on a kiss the badge incentive, useless over- rated player, always was, always will be, one season when he scored a goal every three games and what else? Nothing. There are thousands of people out there who rate him, I am not one of those people, at least Anthony and Jerrel did what they were paid to do, and my goodness even the incredible sulk that was Marko had a decent record.
A big step back for the club if they sign him, maybe he needs games to make it as Beckhams vice captain for the joke that is the Olympics.

Agree0 Disagree0

The. Sky pundit ? Me thinks you either need to go to specsavers or stop going to the bar.

Agree0 Disagree0

Rank rotten player who is not even League One standard. Sad that some "lovers" still hold him so dear....

Agree0 Disagree0

O yeah because we do all our meetings with possible new players in the pub,could be true then,i think not!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

LOL, Yeah players always discuss deals with their agents and the club in the public domain, usually in the clubs bar.

Behave yourself!

This isnt the 70s,

Havent you got some homework to be doing sonny?!

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2012 14:49:02
ed is the post about money being pumped into the club true as that would be great? {Ed020's Note - i have actually, i have a friend(cliche i know) at work who on occasions speaks with gwyn williams at a pub in clifford(outskirts of leeds, near boston spa), and they've loosly mention money being made available, thats not concrete but its something}

Believable7 Unbelievable11

23 Jan 2012 14:34:59
I've been doing some work up at Thorpe Arch today and listened into the office chatter

The chatter was about new money being pumped into the club before the end of the season and for next with Bates taking a back seat, not leaving but staying in the background, apparently Bates health isn't too good and his wife wants him to take it easy in his twilight years.

Not billions but a lot of money to kick things on and a re-fresh a lot of things throughout the club

Chinese money men, apparently

Believable13 Unbelievable24

Specsavers do free hearing tests get yourself along anyway if this were true it would not be freely available to any tom dick or harry at thorpe arch

Agree0 Disagree0

Specsavers? Maybe you need them because you have not read what I have said. They didn't directly tell me directly! I was listening in to the office chatter, you nonce

Agree0 Disagree0

DID NOT SAY THEY TOLD YOU DIRECTLY
ONLY ONE NONCE ON THIS POST AND HELIVES IN A FANTASY WORLD
GO HOME TO MUMMY LITTLE BOY

Agree0 Disagree0

Caps lock, somebody is angry, you ok hun? xxxxx

Agree0 Disagree0

I can settle this know a lady who works there i will ask her if anything heard and will post when i have something

Agree0 Disagree0

It'd be great if this was true. In an ideal world we'd be owned by life-long Leeds Utd fans who loved the club rather than a consortium/company of foreigners (unless they were also Leeds fans!) but with the ways things are going right now if there's any chance of an investment or buy out we've got to be confident that it'll happen and cross our fingers! Not that it guarantees success mind you, I live in Leicester and they're obviously not having the best of seasons despite all the money they've spent!

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2012 14:24:47
id like to see Wellens sign, fantastic player

Believable23 Unbelievable9

Wellens would be ideal alongside Clayton & Delph- we need to get back to Becchio as lone striker with support out wide and from the centre of the park(Snoddy & White)with a new RB, Lees, O'Dea & Pugh- it wont take much, just a couple of signingsand a tweak in tactics. I expect an all out push next season when the financial penalties are gone for rerturning to the premiership.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wellens to Leeds, Snodgrass going the other way Fact! {Ed020's Note - can't see that happening}

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2012 14:21:59
Seen Alan Smith crying in his car outside the east stand.... {Ed020's Note - picture?}

Believable8 Unbelievable19

Crying that he's not on a wage thats less than half of his current payslip, or that he's sold us out not once, but TWICE? I don't think so, get a grip man. He's not coming back, he doesn't miss us and he certainly wouldnt be found crying his eyes outside the club which he turned his back on for a better league

Agree0 Disagree0

Cannot have been him training with the
newcastle squad this morning certain it was
him running alongside other reserve players

Agree0 Disagree0

Probably the same joker as last time re top quote.....Smithy is definitely still at Newcastle and although he is frustrated there is nothing doing as far as I know, although he continues to be linked with a few Championship clubs.
Ed do you know anything? {Ed020's Note - he was offering himself to qpr, but that was when warnock was in charge, i can't see him staying in the premiership or dropping to the championship, during pre-season he had contacts with orlando and toronto in the mls about possibly finishing his career there, if anything he'd go abroad.}

Agree0 Disagree0

He'd just seen the price of a replica home kit.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeh he would struggle to buy it on the weekly pittance he recieves every week

Agree0 Disagree0

Newcastle united first team squad are in tenerife at the moment for a few days soccer camp anyway but haven't seen any pics of smith there

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do so many people think that smith walked out on us?! He didn't want to go but we needed the money. He was truly Leeds thru and thru but we told him that if he wanted to save the club he would have to leave.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2012 13:49:22
apparently wellens is very good but my concern is that he is 31 grayson better not be paying too much of the howson money on him though i doubt that bates would let him

Believable13 Unbelievable1

Leeds are having discussions with former Leicester midfielder Yuki Abe after his recent departure from the club. Yuki is a free agent now and will sign a 3 year deal with Leeds. {Ed020's Note - reckon he's going back to japan, thats why his contracts been cancelled}

Believable2 Unbelievable24

Utter nonsense - he has gone back to japan and signed for his former club Urawa Reds

Agree0 Disagree0

I hate posters like this, you have blatantly never heard of this player neither have I....but you have seen on ssn today that they have cancelled his contract and are now making out that we are signing him.

Either post a real rumour with substance or go back to school.

Source - skysports website

Simon Grayson keen to bring Richie wellens from Leicester city. Leicester reluctant to lose him but may wish to cash in on him as he is 31 and they've just signed drinkwater from those who must not be named.

Good signing I think, been one of the most consistent championship players for years, obviously he's getting on a bit but could do excel alongside the younger clayton and Delph provide a touch of class in midfield.

Believable25 Unbelievable1

Great player! He got player of the year 4 leic last season. Koumas still with us? Need a defender thou {Ed020's Note - he's still on his trial from what i've heard}

Agree0 Disagree0

This would be a good signing.

31 isn't a bad age. He's got the experience that we need, and still got better fitness levels than Michael Brown.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im a leeds fan that lives in Doncaster, and have a step son who likes to watch the rovers from time to time so i take him along, have done for years, anyway my post is to simply say, when wellens was at rovers he totally run almost every game he played in that we watched, while rovers were considered the best footballing side in the league, it cant be coincidence the rovers soon started to lose thier way when he left, although not the fastest, but by far capable of controlling a game, and the players around him, he was always calm and picked the simple pass, has a great engine and often we would see him walk around the younger players just befor kick off patting them on the back and having a little chat with them, im no professional footballer but if i was and someone like that showed me that kind of respect and took time to help me out id be willing to go that extra mile for him and my team mates... we need to get wellens in if we are actually after him, we need more people like that in our team, especially with his ability to lift his team mates and lift moral... any thoughts??

Agree0 Disagree0

Leicester fan here , i, for one would be sad to see Richie Wellens leave us, if he signs for you (the rumours are hot down here as well) i very much doubt you will be disappointed, he's not as fast as he used to be (never that quick anyway) but he sees a quality pass in an instant, not an altogether bad tackler and has the knack of keeping the midfielders around him moving and working, has a good shot on him as well,....he does'nt train much these days because of his knee and back probs but it never stops him putting in 100% EVERY game, if you get him he'll certainly add some spice and expierience to your midfield.
One other thing, we would love to have Snoddy down here but, personally, i dont think it's going to happen, there is no news or rumours whatsover from the local radio / evening paper etc? there usually is something in the wind when a deal is being talked but , this time, nothing?

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2012 13:26:46
Leeds are looking at Leicester's Richie Wellens as a potential replacement for Howson. He is 31 years old. Used to play for SG when he was at Blackpool and is a former Man Utd trainee. Dont know much about him as a midfielder though. Thoughts? Surely he wouldn't cost that much at 31? Leicester may consider selling as they have just brought in Danny Drinkwater and need to reduce the size of squad before they buy.

Source SSN.

Believable18 Unbelievable3

30+, former Manchester United youth player, played under Grayson at Blackpool . . . Sound familier? {Ed020's Note - my thoughts exactly.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh no, hope it's not a case of PRS- Paul Rachubka Syndrome!

Agree0 Disagree0

Wellens is good . cant you remenber him when he was at Donny and completely ran the midfield against us two or three times including the play off fional.

Leeds are set for a double raid on Martin Jol's Fulham according to my contact at Motspur Park (Fulhams training ground)

Both Marcello Trotta and Chris Baird on loan, until the end of the season with the added option of purchasing both players if/when Leeds are promoted.

Trotta scored 8 in 8 for Wycome when on loan there last season. Jol doesn't rate Baird but the Leeds scouting network fancy him to do a job at Full Back {Ed020's Note - he's the experience at full back, might be just what we need to help our youngsters, and 8 goals in 8 games. thats impressive in whatever circumstance.}

Believable19 Unbelievable3

Baird would be a terrific signing IMO, very solid and dependable, however, I can't see what everybodys problem with Connolly is, he's also solid and dependable and with you Zac Thompson showing signs of promise at RB signing yet another player in that position would surely hinder his progress. {Ed020's Note - thompsons natural postion is center mid.}

Agree0 Disagree0

A big and powerful striker with a natural eye for goal, Marcello Trotta signed professional terms with the Club in September 2009.

This season Trotta has been in exceptional form for the Development squad, starting the campaign with a five goal haul against Bolton in August in the third game of the season.

At the start of October Trotta was making waves again, scoring four times against Norwich City at Motspur Park.

In November Trotta joined Wycombe Wanderers on a one-month youth loan. After scoring three goals in three games for Wycombe the striker's loan deal was extended to the 14th January.

Trotta then scored a hat-trick in his next game as Wycombe beat Exeter 3-1, taking his tally to 6 goals in 4 games whilst on loan at Wycombe.

After scoring 8 goals in 8 appearances for Wycombe, Trotta returned to Fulham on the 17th January 2012

Agree0 Disagree0

Of all the recent rumours on here, this one has the most appeal and is logical. However, Fulham are notorious negotiators over loans. Will this be enough to stop the 'Bates out' crew - sadly no. Get behind your team lads, and stop unsettling things further.

Agree0 Disagree0

If it's a loan with the option to buy, I can't see the problem, bring 'em on :)

Agree0 Disagree0

I've heard some rumblings about Eirik Bakke returning to ER from Shaun Harvey himself. My dad's the solicitors for Leeds Utd.

He's impressed at Sogndal and there was a scout who was in Norway last week.

Bakke is open to the possibility of returning as he enjoyed his time at Leeds. He met Grayson during the pre-season tour and started some initial discussions then.

Believable9 Unbelievable28

Would love to see Bakke back, perhaps Stephen McPhail as well to give use a good strong central midfield patnership

Agree0 Disagree0

Strange to hear that he has impressed in Norway... I am norwegian and follows the league closely, and he has been absolute rubbish. Can`t cut it in the norwegian league and that league is way worse than the championship

Agree0 Disagree0

I remember Bakke being quite injury prone. can't see that changing now he's in his late 30's.

Agree0 Disagree0

In his last couple of seasons Bakke was worse than Brown.
What clown posted this nonesense?

Agree0 Disagree0

Taking into account the ridiculous wages he was on for sitting in the stands, im not surprised he enjoyed his time at leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jan 2012 12:32:08
leeds to bring in beckford this week as Leicester have signed delfouneso on loan and beckford will be left out of tonights game against southampton

Delfouneso is a one-month loan deal only from Villa - !!

And Beckford wasn't even left out!...forget facts, get your rumours right first

Ken Bates to make a personal signing of Gossa Gossa of the Ivory Coast for 7.5million {Ed020's Note - as in jean-jacques gosso, have seen him play before, he's good with challenging for the ball and his passing maybe not with the long balls but still ok, would be good for championship level, not sure he's worth 7.5 mill}

Believable4 Unbelievable27

7.5 million? even though according to bates we have overspent by 2 odd million! wise up

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope ken don,t read this he will break out in a sweat do not know where you get your rumours from but keep them to yourself

Agree0 Disagree0

He, he,he, he, ho, ho, ho, he!
You lost me when you you said about Ken making a personal signing- so funny!

Simon Grayson looking at James Perch on a 1.7m deal.

Believable6 Unbelievable36

Would be surprised if uncle ken shelled out that much he would be crying all the way to the bank

Agree0 Disagree0

I doubt it, Perch comes off the bench in almost every Newcastle game. He can play a few positions so I think Newcastle like to have him around the squad.

More importantly he's absolute garbage and isn't worth 170k nevermind 1.7m which Ken Bates would NEVER part with

Agree0 Disagree0

Well said! ^

He's the worst Newcastle player in there squad! Wouldn't mind that Ben arfa mind :)

Agree0 Disagree0

The guy is a liability, just ask any Toon fan!

Agree0 Disagree0

Was he not fairly reliable in their championship winning season?

Agree0 Disagree0

He wasn't at Newcastle whilst they were in The Championship

Agree0 Disagree0

We've had enough players sent off already this season without that clown adding to our problems

come on leeds united lets make this run into a 22 game unbeaten one. we can beat anyone when we are high

Believable31 Unbelievable11

You person you will lose your next game v
Birmingham the mighty blues {Ed020's Note - nice grammer from a typical brummie lol.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Im a leeds fan but really?? i agree with the brummie they prob will beat us and as for a 22 game unbeaten run, are you high? {Ed020's Note - nothing wrong with being optimistic. we only lost 1-o to birmingham last game due to there defence being inpenitrable!!! 8 games unbeaten, so there overdue a loss. lol.}

Agree0 Disagree0

THE ONLY WAY WE WILL GO ON A 22 GAME
UNBEATEN RUN IS TO PLAY WITH A GOALIE
AND TEN DEFENDERS AND HOPE WE COULD GET 22 DRAWS

Agree0 Disagree0

Perhaps 22 is a little optimistic, however we did go about 8 or 9 earlier in the season with a terrible defence, so another little run like that is definately acheivable and would see us quite securely into the top 6.

Should be a few additions this week also, hopefully a bit more quality at the back.

Come on Leeds MOT

arshavin to come on loan for 2 months. i hope this is wrong because he is rubbish! but according to my mate who works at thorpe arch has said that this deal has been going on since december. {Ed020's Note - he was terrible last night, does'nt back track to help the defence out and can't move forward too well. altho championship level.....who knows, we'll take him if your source is correct that is.}

Believable4 Unbelievable45

Hes actually a v, good player but very low on confidence .

Agree0 Disagree0

Arshavin is world class...! form is temporary the fact he got booed from his own fans when making his substitute appearance inplace of Chamberlain - get him over to us we could do with another winger - whoops

Agree0 Disagree0

Should fit in well with our squad at the moment then !

Agree0 Disagree0

Come on seriously??

This deal will never happen, even if arsenal payed 80% of his wages he would still be a million miles out of our budget.

He is a quality player, its just not happening for him at arsenal, a little like Torres at Chelsea.

Agree0 Disagree0

This is rubbish, i put this out last year to get a reaction now you actually believe it...

Agree0 Disagree0

"my mate who works at Thorpe Arch"?!

de ja vu.

leeds looking at arshavin on loan

Believable10 Unbelievable41

I think he needs to go on loan to get his confidence up . his career is gonna be over at arsenal if he doesn't go somewhere soon. i would have him on loan ,when hes on his game hes a top player

Agree0 Disagree0

He is not a player for the Championship, he will never come here......and he is only giving 80%...NEVER 100%

Agree0 Disagree0

I think he is a confidence player and his confidence is shot. He won't know what has hit him if he comes to Leeds now.

Agree0 Disagree0

He will never come to leeds end of story
but carry on dreaming

Agree0 Disagree0

I was looking for one of these silly stories to cheer me up. This is the one. I love Leeds United but come on ...why on earth would the captain of the Russian National Team agree to play for the team that Leeds United have become.

We need to face facts FFS ...the current team is a Div 3 team , playing above themselves in Division 2. (With a worse squad than we had in Div 3 !) Arshavin at Leeds....what a laugh!!
