If you're referring to his tweet, I assume he is asking if Chris Moyles is going to be at the game.

Agree1 Disagree0

Well he is leaving radio one soon! Imagine him as chairman!

Agree0 Disagree0

So you mean the savior of radio 1 is goin to be the savior of LUFC...hmmm don't think so really do you?!

Agree0 Disagree0

He could do leeds united football station

Agree0 Disagree0

Pull the other one mate, that's nearly as big a porky as Moyles himself (was, he's lost a lot of weight now....I suppose that joke doesn't work anymore ) -DB

Agree0 Disagree0

Probably sorting pie supplyer

Grades has now tweeted 3 times basically saying he wants to come back to Leeds! Would be amazing if it happened.

Believable24 Unbelievable16

Bit desperate of the lad- needs a new agent i'd say - who can use a telephone to warnocks mobile

Agree1 Disagree1

No it would be a retro step, he left willingly, and I am sure he doesn't want back - prove otherwise?

Agree0 Disagree1

Well if he wants to come back then i hope this happens and soon

Agree0 Disagree0

Didn't he leave to be closer to his younger sister who he basically fathered since their parents died at a younger age. I'd say he was justified in wanting to leave. Wouldn't say no if he wanted to come back

Agree0 Disagree0

Max gradel would tare this division apart 15+ goals left for family reasons unlike johnson ,snodgrass "supposed" life long"leeds fan howson and would be welcomed back with open arms , if i had a choice between beckford or gradel
gradel wins hands down

spoke to ex player at the forest game told me and lots of others that leeds will get 2o mil when deal is done could name this ex player but not my place to do so he told us is info comes from the top at leeds he said its its shame the money will come too late to buy anyone before christmas but plenty of good players who are out of contract but want big money before they will move on well not long now he said and this club will have that money to tempt those players like i said its not my place to name the ex player cos he might bite my legs mot

Ken bates hates leeds united, why would he tell norman hunter anything ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol, you may as well have just named him... If this were true it would be a nice little pot of pennnies.

Agree0 Disagree0

Aren't there limits on how much you can invest these days? about £6M?

Agree0 Disagree0

People saying there is a 2nd bid and GFH are not connected are wrong. David Haigh was at the match yesterday. Also there was a top exec called Hishram Al Rayes - a high up figure at GFH, also a board member of the Bank of Bahrain. It's all adding up folks

Believable39 Unbelievable8

I hear there's another interested party. An American worth 250 million.

Max Gradel still tweeting he wants the Leeds fans to push NW in getting a return to Elland Road -

Don't know about anyone else but Max and Diouf would destroy this league for us

Woody LUFC

Believable40 Unbelievable14

I sometimes wonder when our ex players are linked with huddersfield if its leeds united they love or SG ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Can you imagine if we added Jermaine as well? Those 2 (Max and Jermaine) I always thought played well together.

Agree0 Disagree0

Think that's a fake account.

Agree0 Disagree0

There are a few fake Max Gradel accounts & 1 keeps tweeting away its Fake!

the real 1 did send a message a few days ago saying about returning to Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Diouf, becchio, gradel, mccormack, beckford and throw boyd in there, now theres a team with an impact

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets be fair about it i would love to see beckford and gradel back at leeds but we have to remember gradel demanded we allow him to move back to his spiritual home on deadline day night and beckford refused to sign a new contract and also put in a transfer request before withdrawing it though i would have them both back in a heartbeat here is hoping

Agree0 Disagree0

Gradel made his bed away from ER so he'll just have to sleep in it...I'm fed up with ex players wanting to return...well we don't want you!

Agree0 Disagree0

Not his official twitter don't think he has it. For these tweets st Etienne would probably punish him

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Sep 2012 21:13:42
Which twitter account is he saying this from as most are fake. I doubt he'd tweet about it anyway, he's under a legal contact with his club in France.

Agree0 Disagree0

1st October will be the official date the new owners take over. It could however be announced before that.

Believable32 Unbelievable20

Sure it was you said it would before the Forest game. Are you going to post this every week and then when it happew say look I told you? person

Crmd

Agree1 Disagree0

There aiming for January transfer window so cant see it happening yet only yesterday bates had mentioned it

Agree0 Disagree0

Hisham Al Reyes and co. attended the game on Saturday and were hopeful to announce a deal before the Forrest game. But even if they did announce it before then, they wont officially take charge until October 1st.

-MS

Agree0 Disagree0

So just cos you hear an interview on the 21st saying maybe 10 days you comt to conclusion must be the 1st well you never now you may be right

Agree0 Disagree0

Of course it COULD be announced before.....

....it COULD also be announced afterwards, too, or maybe even not at all......

It may just be Bate's having a laugh, with a few mates he's invited over for a jolly, but lets hope not.

Agree0 Disagree0

David Haigh after the match yesterday - "Great City, The Best Club, Great Match...and the best fans...."

Followed this morning by "Off to lots of meetings now. Thanks for all the messages. " It would appear he's in London today. With Bates saying the consortium hiring Lawyers in London  one has to hope these meetings are the final pieces to the deal taking place.

Ken Bates claims Leeds are close to being taken over by a Bahrain bank.

Hope he's right for once to end this clubs most negative period ever in my book.

Believable28 Unbelievable7

First Energy Bank apparently

Agree0 Disagree0

Most negative time ever?? what about when we were bankrupt and had to sell every player, then go down from
champions league to league one!!

Agree0 Disagree0

He said investment is close, never once mentioned any T/O

Agree0 Disagree0

Personally I think the bank is GFH of Bahrain and use GFH Capital as the intermediatry. The people at yesterday's match sit on both boards,

Agree0 Disagree0

The quotation was on a website paper talk, not my own. second poster, stop being so negative heeeheeeee.

Agree0 Disagree0

You were obviously not around when a certain Mr Clough took over, then?
