Leeds are after frustrated ex player Rob Hulse, he is not getting a look in at QPR, Most likely a long term loan until the end of the season as he is on around 15-20k a week which Leeds cant afford! MOT

Believable10 Unbelievable31

I liked him when he was here before.. We shouldnt have sold him in the first place!

Hulse and McCormack up front would be good!

Agree0 Disagree0

Zzzzzzz, former player not getting a game, so he must be coming back to Leeds...ZZZZZZZZZ

Agree0 Disagree0

Nah, theres better forwards available than him. Wrong side of 30 journeyman now.

David Beckham's LA Galaxy are talking to Championship side Leeds United over a move for defender Alex Bruce - son of Beckham's former Manchester United team-mate Steve.

Believable44 Unbelievable4

Never really worked out for Alex did it? Good luck with pastures new.

Agree0 Disagree0

Shame really, he's our most composed CB but not given a chance this year. I know Hudderfield fans would have him back in a shot. Thats saying something considering they hate his dad more than we ever could

Agree0 Disagree0

There welcome to him! He is shocking! Obviously need someone to clean Beckhams boots!

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a rumour KB just said we are not going to spend
any more till june or july
here we go again promise some were down the line

Believable21 Unbelievable17

Trying to understand this "sentence". Where did KB make this statement?

Agree0 Disagree0

Nice contradiction of SG stating that he was going to spend the transfer budget (unless it was zero) too - pretty sad state of affairs really.

Agree0 Disagree0

This is not what he said the quote said that the money is there

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jan 2012 17:32:45
no he didnt he said, we aren't going to invest the money for the sake of buying players

Agree0 Disagree0

What he actually said was in the main about the Howson transfer wich after a bit of barter came to around 2 million whuch had gone into the 'Fighting Fund' for the manager to spend on players. He also said that we won't spend on players for the sake of it but only buy those who want to play for Leeds and will make an improvement on what we've already got.
If you're going to quote, then get it right !!!

Agree0 Disagree0

If you look at the full sentence of that quote from KB on the radio he says;

"It was left to the manager to make the final decision; he consulted his backroom staff and said take the money. Now we have that fighting fund in the pot to reinvest, which it will be invested in players. However, we are not going to invest the money for the sake of buying players. There is no point in doing that and we intend to buy players who will commit their future to Leeds United and have the ability to improve on our present squad, to strengthen the squad and not just make up the numbers."

I didn't hear him talk but that looks to me like he's saying have fund to spend and we won't waste it for the sake of buying!

Agree0 Disagree0

Besides the mis-qoute from the original poster, the bit I found most amusing was the "We wont spend ANY more money until June/July". Errrrrr what money have we spent in the last 5yrs...........lol.

Agree0 Disagree0

Count the number of out of contract and loan players SG & previous managers have brought in over last 5 years.......they all cost money in signing on fees, loan fees etc. So to the poster above we have spent a lot of money over last 5 years, a fair proportion wasted mind.

Agree0 Disagree0

Rangers trialist Enar Jaager has returned to Estonia after growing frustrated at not being offered a contract.
Thought Leeds were interested in him ??
Gj
Ed what do you know ? {Ed020's Note - nothing that has'nt been said already.} last i heard he was on his way down to leeds 2 days ago}

Believable10 Unbelievable8

With the crap transportation system in England he is probably still on his way

Agree0 Disagree0

On wikipedia hes signed for us but not gunna be announced untill 28th.

Alan Smith agrees personal terms with the whites, spoke with his agent Lewis Collinge.

Believable27 Unbelievable45

If he has then it will be announced today which i highly doubt both actions will have been and will be completed

Agree0 Disagree0

Erm pretty sure his agent was Alex Black of SportFirst last time I looked?

Agree0 Disagree0

This rumour has been around for so long now I just wish one way or another we would put this to bed ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Pretty sure when he went to MU his agent was cited by Oliver Holt as Alex Black but then again there are more than just the one agent involved with a players dealings, just funny I havent heard of this guy

Agree0 Disagree0

I have also seen this on Twitter, apparently signed an 18 months contract, im hoping its not true

Agree0 Disagree0

There is a chance of this happening. Its NO CHANCE!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets all hope this IS true, we need another lift and his experience and desire is just what we're looking for.

Agree0 Disagree0

The lad cant get in the Newcastle Reserves team. To build a squad to go forward then you shouldnt look backwards. Grayson will be booted out at the end of the season so there will be no big names joining during the window.

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of tripe !! Get real, Smith is on around 45000 + a week at Newcastle, Leeds do not have any money & if they do it will be in Ken Bates offshore account - Fact !!

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope this is true. Whatever has gone in the past, there arent many players who loved Leeds like Smithy did. He is still Leeds through and through. He will put some pride and passion back in our play.MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Its nowt to do with what hes done in the past,or his supposed love of the club,its about talent,and wether he can do a jod for Leeds,and he CANT.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well whatever people lets just wait and see MOT regardless come on

Agree0 Disagree0

I for one would love Smithy to pull the white shirt on again, there is the wage problem but reading his interviews over the last month it sounds to me like he just wants to be playing regular football than not playing and picking a wage up. If LUFC can pull this off am sure it will be a massive hit with most fans, and people saying he carnt do a job? get real we have Brown at the moment "what a joke" of a man let alone a footballer! BRING HOME SMITHY MOT!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Hear hear! just getting a bit depressing right now we need somebody to lift the team but hope this is not another flurry of rumours that comes to nothing

Agree0 Disagree0

enoch showunmi apparantly to return on pay as you play, and michael dubbery in talks!
16 grantley drive, harrogate (Josh Underwood)

Believable12 Unbelievable38

Both par players at best, besides Showunmi couldnt quite cut it, no need to put address mate,

Agree0 Disagree0

Hmm yeah i agree, would be good to see duberry though, Lewis Collinge {Ed020's Note - are you crazy? lol i don't remember duberry being good back in our premiership days}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, I strongly suspect that this post is a wind-up from a 'mate' of this Josh Underwood who would like nothing more than getting the guy a few letters of disregard for suggesting the return of two of our less well-regarded ex players. I am surprised that you published this with the name and address on. Not the most responsible thing to do when it is very easy for you to edit out the personal details. {Ed020's Note - lance porter, 14 brackendale road, wakefield. if anyone would like to send a letter to me personally please go ahead.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Im very suprised it wasnt edited as my previous post was edited from "Man Utd" to "Man Utd"

enoch balotelli to leeds (dave r)

Believable10 Unbelievable29

Tut tut people like you time wasting making up silly rumours (Dave R) sit down pal

Agree0 Disagree0

He's on trial at Sunderland, no chance of him coming to Leeds, besides if he's anything like his brother do we really want him at Leeds!

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Jan 2012 10:40:59
Filippo no andrea, got the two mixed up. Andrea is happy at man city, Filippo wants a chance to actually play, no matter what league (stiddard) heard it here first

Believable2 Unbelievable13

Neither are good enough just have careers on the back of their father's success, both have only ever featured where he has been coaching the club; Andrea has already been out on loan this season, to Oldham i believe and played all of about 5 minutes of football

Agree0 Disagree0

bruce leaving maybe sg is getting aa defender in, i think he should promote gimple to first team too {Ed020's Note - monty's said himself he's not wanting first team action this season, altho he would be a great addition}

Believable6 Unbelievable14

So glad Bruce is going horrible attitude only got where he has because of is dad watched him when he's played for the reserves terrible role model for the young lads hope he goes to play in America thats about his standard

I had to laugh at all of these rumors have people got nothing better to do ? Lol My last post was regarding delph and smith ... well delph is here on loan giving leeds time to wrap up the smith deal he IS coming home :-) other than that iv heard Cywka or simeon jackson on a permanent deal cywka is avaliable on a free and after selling howson to norwich if we match their valuation they will sell.Grayson is eager for a striker. Dont expect any more to come as bates would rather keep his money but paynter will be sold and bruce is expected to be sold to la galaxy

Believable13 Unbelievable14

Why should we believe smith is coming back its bandied about every transfer window

Agree0 Disagree0

The signing of smith is going to be announced on tuesday before the birmingham game

Agree0 Disagree0

Cywka? What do you have to pay for a free transfer nowadays? Very confusing post.

Agree0 Disagree0

You had to laugh you say....well the fact you actually think we can sell paynter is the funniest thing i have seen on this site,we couldn't give him away,we got him for nothing but it will end up costing us to get rid of him

Agree0 Disagree0

Paynter scored against a celtic XI behind closed doors LOL!

Agree0 Disagree0

Cywka's gone to Reading so apart from Delph what else have you got right?

Agree0 Disagree0

Believable12 Unbelievable23

Lolls, seen on ssn he was gunna be released and it took you 5 mins to suggest this....priceless

Agree0 Disagree0
