David templeton is a top target for Warnock hearing from sources, he is a left winger, like snoddy but with alot more pace, I really hope he can get this player to join us, would be a mouth watering thought,the player is awesome, didn't think we could get a player of his sort but keeping fingers and toe crossed

Believable24 Unbelievable8

Templeton would be great i just hope it's true

please not diouf, talented but a trouble maker but warnock wont be having him {Ed020's Note - no way warnock will have diouf!! never!}

Believable13 Unbelievable14

Just read this article on the BBC website and laughed knowing full well that Warnock would rather chop his own leg off with a rusty knife then have that dirty vulgar piece of carp play for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Its getting around fast though with ssn reporting the same thing aswel

Agree0 Disagree0

He brought bad-boy Barton to QPR and tamed him. For a bit.

Baaaaaaad move, if it happens.

Agree0 Disagree0

Think hes currently on bail pending further investigation(allegedly ,seeing as
you didnt post it last time)
nobody wants him ..please not us....it has to be bbc nonsense

Agree0 Disagree0

Well NW would neither confirm or deny the report of wanting him at todays press conference. So the reports are probably true.

Agree0 Disagree0

Neil Warnock called him a sewer rat and then retracted the comment, as he believed this was too harsh on sewer rats. So no definately wont be in a Leeds shirt next year, i would put my house on it.

Agree0 Disagree0

Every football fan's nightmare - "Your club is in talks with Diouf" Honestly think he's more trouble than he's worth!

Agree0 Disagree0

Really hope this isn't true. Normally I stay positive about signings, but I couldn't care less how good Diouf is suppose to be, he's a player i'd rather not have the club affiliated with.

Looking forward to next season, just hopefully not with Diouf.

Agree0 Disagree0

sky sports say leeds are holding talks with diouf... please no

Believable18 Unbelievable12

This is outrageous, of all people I can't believe Neil is looking at this piece of dirt, he is a horrible horrible human being (spitting at people including ball boys) he is disgusting and also was involved in a tunnel tear up at elland road this season, he would respect Neil or the club, I know we are known as dirty Leeds but this player is something else and wouldn't contibute anything to the team, sure we are not that desperate for a horrible player like that, I'm truly blown away and disgusted by the news {Ed020's Note - totally agree with you 100%, english football does not need a man like him, and i would be massivly disappointed if we signed him}

Agree0 Disagree0

He's a disgrace to the game. i would normally try and give any player a chance if they were to wear the leeds shirt. i cant see me ever warming to diouf in one, and i cant see any other leeds fan doing so either. would be a stupid, stupid signing for everyone involved {Ed020's Note - i can't beleive we're even link with the guy.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think he's that bad a player though and if Warnock can get him to sort his attitude out this may be a bit of a coup.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah hes a w****r but hes still a good player, i reckon hed do well

Agree0 Disagree0

Sky are normally pretty accurate but i just cant see this being true, its no secret NW has a dislike for EHD & there was that bust-up in the tunnel at ER. Nah i'm not having it

Agree0 Disagree0

Defo wont go down well with mccormack after getting spat at

Agree0 Disagree0

He hasnt done that well for donny has he? i cant see it being true anyway with warnock hating his guts and all that

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry to say but i have to agree with last poster if warnock can cut out all the bad side of his game then we have a talented player

Agree0 Disagree0

Massive liability, but quality on his day and that cannot be denied, very high profile player for the championship, thats what we have all been shouting out for right?

Vulgar human being though!!

Agree0 Disagree0

I bet if he scores 30 next season he will be welcome.

Agree0 Disagree0

NW has a job to do which is getting us out of this division. If he chooses to sign EHD (which I would very much doubt after what he said about him after a QPR game) then that is up to him. After all, we will be quick enough to call him if he doesn't achieve promotion; at least let him choose the players ( I think personally EHD is a disgrace as a person- but a good player).

Agree0 Disagree0

McCormack and Becchio wont get enough goals to get us up so anything is worth a go....

Agree0 Disagree0

realistic targets/rumours

paul green - derby(not sure how good he is)
clint hill - qpr
Derry- qpr
jason Pearce- pompey
adomah- bristol city
Rodriguez- Burnley
Gunter - Forest
Robbo - current loanee

Believable19 Unbelievable7

Why O why would we want derry is he not the guy who got booted out of leeds for givin palace manager our team sheet n tactics on match day. some of you idiots baffle me smith who actually did something for the club is called a judas but this guy we want him back FFS.

Agree0 Disagree0

Adomah is definately the type of player we need.

Agree0 Disagree0

Gunter......are you mad?? There's no chance of signing him. If he leaves forest it'll be for prem, not championship

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought it was sullivan who sold us out and not derry.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Apr 2012 13:35:57
IMO warnock will have around 3 million to build the squad, plus anything from player sales. I think connolly is a done deal and prob derry will be here, dont rate paul green tbh. Wouldnt be surprised if white leaves but snoddy will stay and he will be on 20k a week. We defo need a winger with pace and crossing ability, it wont be gradel tho. Adomah is within our budget and would improve us. Id like clint hill but hes in and around the 1st team at qpr. Anyway im babbling, but my targets would be....
adomah, derry, hill, hayter, kightly and stearman. Just my opinion obviously, MOT.

Believable13 Unbelievable10

I've been thinking kightly would be good too however he is likely to be a key part of the wolves team next season

Agree0 Disagree0

And also snoddy got offered 15k not 20k a week. id love to see some true ambition from kb.. akos busaky, jordan rhodes, wayne bridge, players like this would excite me for next season. maybe a promising winger on loan from 1 of the big boys for the season... with warnock at the helm i think we can attract better players

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm a Leeds fan who lives in Wolverhampton and most of my mates are Wolves season ticket holders. Kightley is quality but Stearman is absolute tripe. He makes the bunch we've got look like Bobby Moore and Franz Beckenbauer.

Agree0 Disagree0

We have rogers he seems to be a quality player for the 20 mins hes played just a matter of keeping him fit . the game when he fracture/broke his ankle the other team couldn't control him

Agree0 Disagree0

I think kightly is a very good shout. but i dont think wolves will want to let him go unless a stupendous offer comes in. im from bristol and have seen adomah quite a lot. definitely one of city's best players, and has a good cross, can beat defenders with pace.

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't think we're going to get much with a whole 3 million.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think that being one of Bristol City's best players is much of an achievement.

Agree0 Disagree0

Clint hill has been told he won't be getting. A contract next year so is on a free

Agree0 Disagree0

Ive seen a NW team talk on youtube when QPR won promotion he singles Clint Hill out saying "playing 43 games on a bad ankle, all you others would played 10, eff'in hero in my eyes." also saw an interview with Hill on SSN last week, admitting he is a couple of seasons too late for the Prem, but has enjoyed it. on a free coming to leeds would seem perfect for everyone.

kazenga lua lua to leeds after being unhappy at brighton

Believable14 Unbelievable18

He's in court for assault in november - dont think we need the baggage

Agree0 Disagree0

I saw him play at leeds this season and was the best player on the pitch but then so was doif

Heard Warnock is interested in Dan Harding from Southampton, former player and is out of favour at the moment!
Jason Pearce and Paul Green look set to sign too.
Warnock could invade his old club QPR for the signatures of Paddy Kenny, Shaun Derry, Jay Bothroyd and Ákos Buzsáky.
Looks a very busy summer ahead for us.

Believable22 Unbelievable16

I'm sorry to say Paul Green is going to Ipswich. Not entirely sure we were ever interested, but if we were, what has it come to if Ipswich are able to beat us to players? Get out Bates.

Agree0 Disagree0

Looks like a busy summer for us? - Have you been listening to warnock over the past few weeks......he ain't gonna be bust he is gonna be f%&king very busy!

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll believe it when I see it.

Remember, as Ken has told us, immediately after the end of the season, agents go on holiday. Then the players time their holidays for the exact moment when the agents return. I must stress that no-one will have their phone on at all so it will be impossible to sign anyone in the early months of the transfer market. Then, finally, everyone is back in the UK, but the problem then is that the Premier League teams haven't named their 25 man squads. This means players won't leave despite the mega-money offers we're making for them. After the clubs name their squads, finally we can begin to talk to players, but the problem then is that if you try to sign them too soon they want too much money. We also need to understand who is staying and who is going and with so many clubs in financial trouble, budgets won't be sured up until nearly the start of the season. By then we'll be off on a pre-seaso tour and will be unable to sign anyone whilst concentrating on training. And when we get back, we'll be staring the season again.

As you will see, its pretty clear no-one will be doing any business in the upcoming window.

If it wa

Agree0 Disagree0

The only players Ipswich beat us to are the crap ones anyway. Look at all the money they spent this season, and we only got Michael Brown and Darren O'Dea, yet we're above them in the League.

Seriously, don't worry about Ipswich.

Agree0 Disagree0

Blimey. Remind me not to sit next to you on a plane!

Agree0 Disagree0

Hasn't Derry already said he's not leaving qpr?

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock has said he doesn't want to sign players from QPR!!

Leeds have scouts in Scotland to assess the Rangers players due to their situation. Also looking at Hearts' Templeton and Driver and Tom hately of Motherwell

Believable28 Unbelievable7

Rangers have got transfer embargo at the mo so no players moving anywhere

Agree0 Disagree0

It was my understanding that their transfer embargo means they can only sign under 18 players for the next 12 months, nothing about them not being able to sell (which I'd imagine they'll have to considering they're in administration and will run out of money by the end of next month!) So scout away lads!

Agree0 Disagree0

Id be happy with any one of them three from Motherwell.

Tommy

Agree0 Disagree0

3 from motherwell? driver and templeton are from hearts.

Agree0 Disagree0

Transfer embargos are only preventing buying, not selling.

Agree0 Disagree0

Templeton is a class player! Seen him play a couple of times and would love to have him.

leeds are set to sign emile heskey and clayton donaldson as leeds boss neil warnock wants some muscle up front to battle with defenders.

Believable10 Unbelievable25

Heskey is on 60k a week at villa how and why would we want to pay ridiculous wages for a player clearly past it plus stoke city want him

Agree0 Disagree0

Please don't sign Heskey. He wasn't any good even in his prime. Look at his goal scoring record......very poor.

Agree0 Disagree0

Where the F did u get the figure of heskey being on 60k a week from? Arsenal players only just earn that much let a loan Villa

Agree0 Disagree0

Might as well get Tresor back instead or Ricketts, by the way Heskey was linked with Leeds years ago and openly admitted he hated Leeds because of the supporters. At least try and make the rumours realistic

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio wins just about every header he goes up for, why would you change him? Also Donaldson is terrible
