there are a few keepers i wouldnt mind SG looking at such as scott loach maybe brad jones {Ed015's Note - What about Buffon?}

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Im from derbyshire and all my mates support derby they said brad jones and stephen bywater are shocking neither of them command their area and cant catch a ball, neither impressed me when we played them and when i saw bywater on tv playing 4 cardiff he was shocking

Lucas Radebe wants back in at Leeds! So I have been told by usually good sources. But don't worry, not to play again! he wants to work with the youth team or reserves, wondered if there was any truth behind what I have been told, would be good to see the Chief back at Elland Road!

===========

I've mentioned when talking with mates at home, how good it would be to bring Radebe in as a defensive coach or as someone to work with the youth team on a mental development role. Fantastic addition to the backroom staff if he comes back to ER.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well my source is not always correct but often is, he works at the Yorkshire Post and often gets scoops to me regarding Leeds whether they come true or not is another matter but he told me he recently was at a charity event where Radebe was a guest speaker and was 'unofficially' asked whether he would like to return to Leeds on a coaching side and the response was that he could not see himself being part of Grayson's first team coaches as that is pretty set in place and he wouldn't want to rock the boat, but if the chance came to work with the youth department he would jump at the chance.

This is purely what my friend has told me, again, whether it happens or not, who knows.

---------------------------------------

Further more my mate has texted me the 'unofficial' quote from Lucas Radebe regarding returning to football, it goes as follows 'Much as I would like to be on the field of play again, my passion lies with the development of the game at grassroots level in South Africa or coming to join Leeds.'

I have been a leeds fan all my life 38yrs my friend a Newcastle season ticket holder rang me Alan smith has refused the option of cancelling his contract he wants to stay and fight for his place you mean he wants the money he had the chance to re join the club he supposedly loves but he chose money again just like he did when he joined the scum by the way he said they want rid he is to slow and the reason they won promotion was down to nolan carrol and barton so why are we desperate for him back {Ed015's Note - the reason he joined man utd is because leeds needed rid and no1 else wanted him}

I really wish everyone would stop banging on about how great Kasper Schmeichel is!!! He is good but not great, he is not tall enough and hasn't got a decent reach! There was numorous occations last season where Kasper was at fault...i.e-the first goal against watford at home when there little defender chap scored, defences fault too (as he scored with a header) but where the hell was Kasper!!! Paul Rachubka is a great replacement for Higgs. really gets on me tits the people saying we should sack Grayson-promotion last season, good placing this season along with knocking the scum out of the cup and going all the way with spurs and arsenal and narrowly losing to liverpool!!! yeah right!

In response to whoever posted this, use your head! whether you agree with the sale of Schmeichel or not (which i don't) the fact is the Rachubka deal was set in place long ago before the Kasper situation arose, he has been brought in to replace Higgs, simple as that! Wait and see who is brought in as number 1 then judge!

Whilst it is obvious that Paul from Blackpool is not going to be number one keeper(from the start at least) it does confirm that Grayson has his favourites and scapegoats. Their(Blackpool) current goal keeper was kept out by Paul even though Gilks was/is a far better performer. SG has now brought him to Leeds to feed his obsession. I hope these obsessions do not continue with Paynter and the opposite way with Somma. I hope some quality comes in. I have doubts about SG. It's not all down to Bates. Some of SG's decisions last season were bizarre to say the least. Still , he needs another season to prove a point one way or the other.

How is Newcastle United "mad" a credible source on Smith's views on the move? The Yorkshire Post does however report that Smith wants his full wage, i.e a reported £55,000 a week. With Newcastle willing to stump up 30k. I have to say if Smith would rather sit in the reserves for a year or go to some tin pot club who will pay the full sum over a chance to return to his boyhood club, then we probably don't want him anyway, it must be tough only getting 30k a week

Leeds have stepped up their bid to re-sign Alan Smith by enquiring what wages the former England international would accept to return to Elland Road.

The 30-year-old has a year remaining on his £60,000-per-week contract at Newcastle but has been told he can leave.

ed can you tell me what happend to the money from the sale of delph because i cant remeber what bates/grayson did with it, surley if that money is still knocking about we could use it for a couple of decent players/wages. {Ed015's Note - As far as im aware it went towards the wage budget although bates said it was avalible for transfers}
---------------------------------------------------
Not sure if we've had that much of it yet as a large chunk of the fee was dependent on appearances etc and he was injured for the majority of his first season at Villa, hopefully he'll get a good run in the team this season so they have to finally cough up.

TalkSport:

Leeds in battle to land former Blackburn keeper

Championship club want Jason Brown but face competition from Cardiff for the stopper's signature


- We had him on loan last season... did OK


Are Lee Bowyer and Jonathan Woodgate returning to Leeds United
Sutcliffe: 'Bowyer, Woodgate and Smith have all spoken to Leeds'


- Don't think it'll surprise anyone if we signed any or all of them... I think Bowyer would be a good signing in the short-term, but really can't see the point in signing Smithy and Woody back... if we do, let's hope they prove me wrong.

Maybe we should chase Ian Harte from Reading... we need a left-back and that way, we'll be 4/11 closer to the Champions' League Semi again :D


Leeds Website:

"We put a squad together to get out of League One two summers ago and added last year so we could compete in the Championship, " he said.

"A lot of players did really well and I have trust and belief they can do well and help us go one stage better.

"Obviously Bradley and Kilkenny have walked of their own accord so we know we have to replace them. It won't be 12 or 13 like before, I'm not putting a figure on it, but I know where we need to improve."

Chairman Ken Bates echoed the comments of the manager by predicting a busyperiod in terms of player business.

"Next week the activity will start, " the chairman told Yorkshire Radio.

"Players are back from their holidays and we need to speak to them as well as their agents. They report back on the 30th of June and I think you will see an explosion of activity over the next month so please sit tight."

Lets get one thing straight... The transfer window opens on 01/07/11. If someone has seen Alan Smith in a hotel or in a shop in Leeds blah blah blah.... No one can sign until transfer window opens. Relax guys and gals... In Grayson we trust ! MOT.

According to YEP Smith is still on holiday in USA until July and that he will not forego any reduction in his salary over next 12 months which is rumoured to be £55k per week. Newcastle would therefore have to contribute the majority of this if Smith is to return to Leeds.

On the site it says business will be starting as July begins, as players will be back from holiday. Smithy is not at Bewleys. And, as a Leeds fan why on earth would you be in a Leeds hotel, surely you live near here anyway??

ed can you tell me what happend to the money from the sale of delph because i cant remeber what bates/grayson did with it, surley if that money is still knocking about we could use it for a couple of decent players/wages. {Ed015's Note - As far as im aware it went towards the wage budget although bates said it was avalible for transfers}

Stop putting S..t on here about LEEDS signings! Or as on here guessings!! Things are normally done very quietly by Leeds as not to start bidding wars or inflated ego's then wage demands! We don't pay massive wages(around 7.5k pw)so big names will always be a problem. Ps Koumas twittered yesterday he was in talks with Sheff Weds of division 1.
