Neil Warnock has apparently urged Shaun Harvey to push a deal through for Stephen Whittaker and Naysmith from Rangers as soon as he heard they were made free agents.

Believable13 Unbelievable31

You got it wrong they have refused to have there contracts switched to newco (new rangers) what will happen is a courtcase effectively green still owns there contracts as they are assets of rangers

Agree0 Disagree0

And i would have had roast pork tomorrow if i'd caught that pig flying past my window.

Agree0 Disagree0

By law when moving to a newco they get the option to not move if they don't wish too. There assets are things like the ground and fixtures and fittings not the players

Agree0 Disagree0

Just been on SSN and the two named players are free agents. Would be good at Leeds but can't see them coming tbh.

Agree0 Disagree0

They are not free agents green will take them to court

Agree0 Disagree0

Not free agents but available on a reduced fee. Could still be exciting prospects depending on how much the reduced fee is.

People this is true paddy Kenny has signed for Leeds.. Get in... He's a proven keeper in this league jus need a couple of defenders and hold on to are top players such as snod grass , beccio etc let the good times roll at ER love Leeds MOT

Goin up up up

Believable22 Unbelievable16

People this is true paddy kkenney has not signed for leeds yet

Agree0 Disagree0

He signed a pre contract agreement 3 weeks ago,,,durrrr

Agree0 Disagree0

Jeeze he signed a pre contractyt agreement 3 weeks ago shame qpr didnt know cos they only transfer listed him last week if they already agreed a fee and the deal is done why transg=fer list him durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Agree0 Disagree0

The poster who said he agreed a pree contract agreement 3 weeks ago should mail qpr cos they onlyn officially listed kenney last week and players only sign pre contract agreement is if A they are in the youth squad and can sign a pre contract deal that takes effect atage 17 or B they are coming to the end of the contract seing as kenney is neither shows you dont know what you on about milky

Agree0 Disagree0

People this is true , you dont know if he has or hasn't

Agree0 Disagree0

He's no better than Lonners. If we are to improve in the keeper department we should get hold of Reading no. 2. He is an improvement.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

To the poster above, he would be a massive improvement on Lonners. I lost track of the amount of games Lonners cost us last year due to him not being able to command his area or arrange his defence.

My mate Daves cousin has a friend who walks his dog, who knows Jeff who is best mates with Gary who knows John fitz Leeds 15 and says he's buying LEEDS with his pocket money he's saved up. Can't wait.... MOT

Believable47 Unbelievable10

I heard he had spent it in the sweet shop on the way to see ken bates. the bulldog

Agree0 Disagree0

Well hopefull with this new investment well be able to sign all the players hes linked us with!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Yawn, yawn, yawn! Very funny, never heard this before. If you can't post a rumour that is at the worst funny or at the least have a thread of credibility why bother at all? Better go and get into your PJ's and see if Mummy will let you stay up and watch the football.

Agree0 Disagree0

You want to be careful John fitz Leeds 15...could be certifiable, only two or three doctors, BUT HE COULD BE BEHIND YOU!. lol M.O.T.

Agree0 Disagree0

I heard that Gripper Stebson intercepted him on the way to ER and his 'accountant', Roland Browning, is now in the process of spending the pocket money on a substantial investment in Nottingham Forest.

Agree0 Disagree0

I have heard that he has pulled out of his investment because of the 'Bates out' protests, you morons you chased him away!

You are the one that makes up silly posts...so reading this post, relating to your others then, anything from a reliant robin (del boy car) up to citreon dyane would be classed posh! lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Brilliant observation watson. i wonder if there are maybe millionaire footballers working there?
sorry if mistaken not completedd my detective gcse yet

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe bates is down the carboot sale trying to find a last minute buyer!! before his greed blows any possible deal and he gets lynched!! lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Surprised you never saw a football player stall with players for sale, with Clayton, Forsell and McCormack hanging from pegs with for sale signs attached to their heads and Mr Warnock browsing through the midfielders shelf.

Never thought I'd see John Fitz LS15 at a car boot sale! :0) Dunny

Huddersfield bid 2.5 mill for ross mccormack i say bite there hands off use the funds to bring back beckford

Believable16 Unbelievable15

You really think bates would allow 2.5 million to be reinvested into the leeds squad did the moner for delph get reinvested into leeds the money for milner and lennon how about the moner for gradel and howson if this happens warnock will be lucky to recieve 1 million

Agree0 Disagree0

Mccormack has more to his game than Beckford ever will. One of our best players and people want rid, no wonder we're sh**e

Agree0 Disagree0

Iagree he should take the money but why spend it on Beckford ? He was very ordinary in the Championship last season. League 1 is where Beckford will thrive.

Agree0 Disagree0

That would be great! Mac is a skilled performer, but not gonna get us out of this league sadly -as Cardiff concluded as well a couple of years ago. As for Beckford -yes, please -goals, goals, goals! Having a 30 goals a season man on our side will give us a really good chance -as we found in League One. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

So McCormack will step down to go to a team managed by a manager he suspectedly walled up? Highly doubtful.

Plus how can Huddersfields intentions match Warnocks? I love larry and thought he was great for Leeds but never agreed with his transfer policy and I know KB didn't help him either. But I do not see Ross going there and not for 2.5 mil as I don't value him at that for the second start of the season he was s***!

MOT
Ryan

Agree0 Disagree0

2011–12 Leicester City Championship ap39 goals 9

hardly 30 goals a season.

Agree0 Disagree0

2.5 would be a fair price for the "poor mans Wayne Rooney" good striker but need to cash in, plenty of other good strikers out there and by the looks of the 3 signings so far you can bet Warnock knows what he is doing!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Mccormack wasn't s**t at all last season his work rate was good maybe he had a large patch where he didn't score but he always worked hard . had we of been a top 2 team the season just gone mccormack would of scored atleast 30 goals. the thing is aswell a team cant expect 1 player to score all the goals . becchio was injured and came back poor but eventually started to get his sharpness back . we just didnt have anyone to play alongside mccormack for too long and this is why we lost so many games as usually if 1 striker not scoring more than likely the other one is. this is again bates at fault for not giving us extra funds in January to fix this problem . this season maybe better with all strikers back training and hopefully fit .

Agree0 Disagree0

2.5 mill for a striker who scored 21 goals in 2 seasons? bye mac, thanks for the effort

Agree0 Disagree0

Theres no way simon grayson would go for ross mcormack if he got walled up by him...absolute rubbish.if he went to hudds then good luck to him as they seem to have more ambition and money then leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes but something like 40% of profit on sale goes to Cardiff - We got him cheap with a big sell on clause

Agree0 Disagree0

You cant use Milner and Lennon as examples cos we still had debt then.

Agree0 Disagree0

They dont have more ambition or money, u numpty,go back to your own page

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Jun 2012 09:55:30
so grayson gonna get rossco for 2.5 mill. warnock wil think ots christmas. had a good season last season but imo not better than a fully fit becchio or somma.

Believable23 Unbelievable14

Somma went missing when starting games he is only any good as a sub, Becchio is a totally different type of player. Neither have the skill or class of Mccormack, there is not many better in the championship.

Agree0 Disagree0

That would be great! Mac is a skilled performer, but not gonna get us out of this league sadly -as Cardiff concluded as well a couple of years ago. As for Beckford -yes, please -goals, goals, goals! Having a 30 goals a season man on our side will give us a really good chance -as we found in League One. Don't' bring Becchio or Somma into the equation, though -not sure either of them is quite good enough either; though Luciano could have a continuing role as a foil doing the heavy lifting for Beckford, if we get the latter. Becchio is never going to cut it as the main man now, as we saw last season, good team man though he is. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio and Somma aren't in the same league as McCormack, Beckford up to with McCormack would be unbelievable! JTW

Agree0 Disagree0

In reply to the last, I think the point is that we're assuming that we're going to have to sell Mac to get Beckford. If on the other hand incoming funds allow us to have both, then that's a different matter, and I would certainly not be averse to having Ross's skills at our disposal (either playing off the main man, or as a very capablel sub). Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

Mccormack is good but not great lack of hight and pace dont help him better strikers out there take the money

Agree0 Disagree0

Id still keep mccormack as he is able to play on both wings aswell as striker

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah, as Cardiff concluded a couple of seasons ago when they sold him and got promoted... oh wait...

Agree0 Disagree0

Can't beleive what i'm reading, our best player from last season and top scorer and some fans want rid? Who we going to replace him with? Do any of you think we can for 2.5m? Do any of you think the whole 2.5m will be then available to buy someone with? Answer is 'NO', so we get a little weaker as a team and Bates gets a litle richer, pi55 poor some leeds fans.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think we should definitely get rid of (argually) our best player from last season. Who needs a skillful, pacey striker like McCormack? Stick Becchio up front on his own and we'll get promoted off the back of his 13 goals a season. Unreal!

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally agree with the majority of posters. The question should be who partners McCormack, not who do we buy instead and it seems to be a false economy if we dont give him a pay rise, yet spend a couple of million on a player who probably wont be as good.

Agree0 Disagree0

Confirmed news !

i have friends over at ER from the janitor to the grounds keeper. and other stuff working at ER

gathering information from them.

Apparently NW has been given green signal to invest in transfers.

he has been told to go buy freebies and for targets which require investment - they will be able to come in by the end of next week when - investment deal will come through

regarding the takeover - there is no takeover - it will be investment by a us team. who will concentrate on the team and football side of thing and bates will concentrate on infrastructure side of things. in essence it will 50 - 50 venture. so bates is not out.

according to more rumors kenny is assured and other targets seems to be killgallon and maurice edu - available for 300 k - but apparently even Trabzonspor are looking out for him

Believable5 Unbelievable18

Fact 1 leeds are not a viable businness for a mere investment because leeds own nothing they rent elland road and thorpe arche billy bar and howards way are not owned by leeds either i bet you are the person who keeps posting its an investment too and btw groundskeepers and janitor dont know whats going on neithe do the people woring in the function rooms club shops or even lorrimer the only people who knows whats going down is bates harvey and the lawyersand i STRESS leeds have nothing to invest in

Agree0 Disagree0

Actually maurice is in limbo he has 2 choices at moment (rangers dont exist so cant charge a fee for a player) he can either transfer his contract to newco(who will be effectively the new rangers) or become a free agent so where you get 300k from just blows your whole post in the water to sink also investment dont take this long and this is just a rehash of a post from about 3 weeks ago was this you milky

Agree0 Disagree0

My god lad, you must be really bored today, to come up with this load of sh=te.
All these people must live near you. So must be a really amazeing place to live. WHAT EVER!!
Now go get ready, it's time to go to Sunday school young lad. HAVE A GOOD ONE!!
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh you have friends! The Janiter, stop talking crap! Like he would know whts going on at Leeds United oh but wait you also know the groundsmen - Oh yes just what we have all been waiting for...........Go back to bed you muppet

Agree0 Disagree0

Funny how you know more than lust and phil hay whom both state that there is a takeover. I mean well done u got finding a caretaker( we r in the uk not u.s) to get us such precise details and expose both the aformentiond parties as liars.

Agree0 Disagree0

You have been fed crap investment dos nt take this long its a take over bates is on his way lufc fans will not except him anymore or it will be 15 k attendances which bates cant afford to have end of.

Agree0 Disagree0

So i take it that yiu was drunk when this postwas wrote how an you buy a freebies he was already signing frrbies cos there wage will be taken up with out going players being released pearce wages with the money saved from odea and robinson green with parkers drurys with forsells see how it goes he will still have the other finish guys wage to playe with so exopect another couple players comong in on july 1st

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish again. This fixation with Bates doing lots of infrastructure work in the future is misguided as most will be built by Developers (hotel/casino).

Agree0 Disagree0

Brilliant! The whole leeds utd fanbase have been waiting for news on any takeover. Weve bern scowling the internet and skysports for updates and all along the janitor was being briefed on transfer dealings in between fixing the urinals and restocked hand soap. Wish id known! What a load of tosh!

Agree0 Disagree0

It's good that they involve the janitor in transfer activity and the running of the club, does he attend board meetings too?

Agree0 Disagree0

Kilgallons already stated he wants to stay at Sunderland. Rumour hit a snag already

Agree0 Disagree0

That's were your info is coming from the back of the toilet door, just wait and see all will come out soon, and we are all going to be very happy

Agree0 Disagree0

Seems unique that Leeds United has every man and his dog with the most tentative links to the club in the know about a multi-million pound (allegedly) business deal. No wonder the transaction is taking so long as the Thorp Arch dog walking club has members away and they have yet to be consulted through the fence!

Agree0 Disagree0

OK guys, let's not give our fellow posters too hard a time on here. The arrangement suggested -investors focusing on the team, while Bates is allowed to continue overseeing site developments- actually seems plausible to me; and, dare I say, even sensible! Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

All the business matters are dealt with at TA not ER. Staff at ER are as much in the dark as you and i. I was chatting to staff member in the ER shop and he concluded that they know absolutely nothing.

Peter Wittingham interested in a move elsewhere and has had 4 offers of clubs in the championship - source: himself while he was visiting family in Birmingham, he hasn't stated which clubs have offered though, talking to him he sounds like he is dying for promotion saying he is 'wounded he can't get promoted with Cardiff'. Who knows ay?

AntW

Believable7 Unbelievable7

Peter Whittingham would be a superb buy. Buying him would show ambition. If all purchases were of this calibre we would certainly be knocking on Premierships door.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Classy player, with great left foot. Would be a good addition without doubt, provided he has someone with pace wide of him (and, if White stays, behind him too). Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

Whittingham is certainly a player worth going for if he is available. One of the best in the championship.

Agree0 Disagree0

23 Jun 2012 23:09:35
Just been chatting to one of the players that will be staying. Looks like the takeover is happening - nothing said on a completion date though (not that they'd be told a anyway).

Whatever happens NW will have to replace McCormack though as he is expected to go within the next couple of weeks - not to another championship side.

Believable7 Unbelievable10

Dear poster warnock will not sell rosco without him having the replacement signed upbefore hand warnock aint like grayson who sells before buying or in graysons case sells without replacing gradel and howson and i really doubt any player knows about the takeover milky

Agree0 Disagree0

So who's saying we won't have another striker in or replacements for the others within 2 weeks? If there is a takeover in the advanced stages then I'm sure the players would know it was going on

Agree0 Disagree0

I will be real sorry to see mcC go.dont thnk hes ever been given enough recognition.but,becchio,somna,mcC and new addition one would have to go.
