Believable13 Unbelievable27

The police requested it be moved and no it's not televised

Agree0 Disagree0

No mate not on telly and being moved back to original date because of what happend against sheff Wednesday on Friday night

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Nov 2012 20:46:07
no mate early ko sat morn

Agree0 Disagree0

Police advice and no

Agree0 Disagree0

Because of the trouble at Sheffield Wednesday on the Friday so it got changed to Saturday. Not televised due to the person.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why the hell do you think a local derby on a Friday night has been moved now? Remember Sheffield?

Agree0 Disagree0

West Yorkshire police requested game moved after Sheffield Wednesday fiasco,don't think its being televised

Agree0 Disagree0

They've got bham vs boro now they moved it cos of what happened last time we played on fri night

Agree0 Disagree0

That's a shame! Cheers for the feedback lads

Agree0 Disagree0

Because of that brainless person smacking the keeper against wendys ash MOT

Tait, pearce and lees. Which 2 would you play ?
Bainesyboy

Believable4 Unbelievable7

Kenny

Byram. Tate. Lees. Peltier


Diouf. Green. Tonge. Thomas

McCormack. Becchio.

That's a strong side subs Pearce, Norris, Drury, Poleon, White, and that before January mot

Agree0 Disagree0

All 3 and drop peltier

Agree0 Disagree0

Tate and Pearce, I m still not convinced about Lees . IrishWhite

Agree0 Disagree0

Tate and Pearce.

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Nov 2012 21:13:23
Warnock might play all 3 and play Byram at rm.
So back 4 would be lees,pearce,Tate,peltier
midfield would be Byram ,tonge ,noris, Thomas
diouf and becchio in attack at the moment .we seem to have a strong squad now

Agree0 Disagree1

Tait and Lees. They would win more headers and be more dominant.

Agree0 Disagree0

After yesterday's performance Tate + Lees, however I think Pearce + Tate should be tried also. tbh It's good that we are having this dilemma isn't it!!

Agree1 Disagree0

Tate will play Left Back when Pearce returns

Agree0 Disagree0

Problem here , all 3 could not beat NW over 100 metres.
I would personally drop Lees , not up to it yet ! Leeds KEK

Agree0 Disagree0

Pearce can plat left back too id prefer him there then putlees n tate at CB

Agree0 Disagree0

Lads think of it this way when Neil gets the players he wants for January were going to have brilliant squad we just needed a few quality players in add to that Rossco Thomas and Tate with three more and we are on the rise. I can't wait for January

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Nov 2012 10:43:24
Kenny.lees.pearce.tate.peltier.byran.green.norris.diouf.thomas.mcormack.

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought Tate and Lees were spot on Saturday. Lees just needs some experience next to him and it will bring him on a treat. Peltier for me is the weak link, although he played ok on Saturday.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tait can play right back just as well, lacks a bit of pace for premer but OK at championship level, can also play holding role well. Coming from Swansea he keeps the ball well. Swansea Leeds..MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Lees should always b our number 1 cb as hes leeds n proud n then id keep swaping pearce n tate but to b honest our lees + pearce were always good together its the lack of goals that lets us down n peltier needs 2 b told hes a rb/cb as all he seems 2 do is attack! glad green is getting a chance as he is gr8.

Agree0 Disagree0

My Backline would be bryam - lees -tate -drury.

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont subscribe to the theory that just because someone is from Leeds they have a devine right to be in the team. In this league you need two hard nuts with a bit of pace at centre half and i would play Tait and Pearce. Byram is pure class and either at right back or right midfield would be great. I can see Lees playing right back in Dec

Agree0 Disagree0

Tate and Lees

Agree0 Disagree0

Lees tait Pearce drury
Bryan Norris green Thomas
Diouf's McCormack

Agree0 Disagree0

Lees should b our main cb as hes leeds n proud not cus hes from leeds, i mean he gives 110% every game n tries harder than most in our team so yh he should b our main cb n ppl saying lees should b rb r daft as he played rb not long ago n was really bad n kept getting beat but as cb hes solid n far better than pearce n tate.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tait and Pearce, with Lees at RB

Agree0 Disagree0

How can people even consider anything other than Lees and Tate. These last two games we've looked much more solid and Lees and Tate definately aren't full backs. In this league you need full backs with a bit of pace to be able to deal with wingers.

Pearce will have to wait his turn i'm afraid

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol getting abit carried away last poster, who r u 2 decide pearce will have 2 wait? lol its upto warnock im afraid n no one will know till hes not banned

Agree0 Disagree0

Pearce and Lees (Tate is Pearce's cover).

people saying fans are not fans for still staying away, do not see or understand the reasons for this. People are looseing there jobs, moneys tight at the moment or like myself i could go but choose to wait till jan and see if these people are the real deal. Just because they've bought us, which is great, still doesn't mean there going to stick to there word about transfers. I spent loads on going to games over the last 20yrs but only in the last 4 yrs have i felt we are not getting value for money. I guess all the empty promises Bates dished out, has made me feel this way. I don't really care if he stays on up stairs aslong as the new owners out some real money into the squad. 6-8 million would be a nuff to show me they mean buisness and we really are marching on togeather.
This waitting and staying away is killing me. So Jan can not come soon a nuff.
BARMY ARMY!!

More FANS go to games = money for the team we have to do our bit as well not just sit back and hope they will pump in money, Saturdays showing for the game was a disgrace

Batley white

Agree1 Disagree0

I'm sorry but I really feel 8 million would not be enough to get us out of that division. We'd need more like 15-20 million to get 6 good quality signings. Hope I'm wrong.

Agree0 Disagree1

Originally the reason for staying away was a boycott against Bates...now there is another excuse, look i am bored with people banging on about staying away, If you do not want to go to a game then dont go but stop telling us, as it sounds like you are trying to make yourself a martyr .

Agree0 Disagree0

The start of a new dawn and you lot just managed to scrape 20k at home for the visit of the form team in the division.

Call yourselves supporters?

A city the size of Leeds and yet this is the best you can do?

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Nov 2012 21:39:31
Don't worry, you are wrong! the right manager could get a team out of this division easily for 5 million if not less. All it takes is a bit of consistency. there are no stand out teams and everyone one can beat each other.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm a Norwich fan & I think your club has been run ridiculously . Leeds should be a top team in the prem. in league 1 you had a great team . You sold your players far 2 cheap & let there contracts run out . Warnock is not the right man for the job .

Agree0 Disagree0

8 mill is more than enough, 4 or 5 good players for that league with that money and thats all we need if we get right players for the right positions. NW will have a good think about his targets im sure we'll start doing great come jan!

Agree0 Disagree0

People are staying away because for many, the details of the takeover are like a slap in face. I for one have been looking forward to Bates' exit, more than the new people coming in. To be told that he will be staying on, and in such a position is the biggest insult I've suffered in my 40 years supporting the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

That last post says it all about the 'love Leeds, hate Bates' campaign, sadly hating KB has become an obsession and is more important to some than loving Leeds! As an earlier poster points out the best chance of getting the new owners to strongly back KB is to turn up in numbers.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not getting value for money? To me going and supporting my team through thick and thin gives me enough satisfaction, if i was you id find another team as supporting Leeds is never always easy so we dont want people that just disappear when it gets a bit hard!

Agree0 Disagree0

Far to many glory grabbers at Leeds. One excuse after another for not coming to games. It's always been the same for last 40 years. We get promoted and they'll all come out of the woodwork but until then it'll be one excuse after another. If Bates had gone completely they would still bleat on about something yet when we in premier league they'll be the ones saying they stuck with the side through the wilderness. When we are getting 40000, over 15000 of them are glory hunters. Makes me sick really.

Agree0 Disagree0

20k seems fair enough given our form i dont see many clubs in the in the div getin a whole lot more then that

Agree0 Disagree0

So I'm not a fan if i don't go to games? That means I cant be a fan of F1 either or the olympics.

Agree0 Disagree0

The problem for me has always been Bates and his unwillingness to invest OUR money into OUR club.

Bates is STILL there and STILL running the club and STILL not investing OUR money into OUR club?

So what part of 'still staying away' don't you understand?

When Bates no longer runs the club I will return, maybe sooner if a 'serious' investment is made in the January transfer market.

As it is I don't believe GFH have actually paid Bates the whole sum for his shares yet and that is why they are having to let him stay on.

Lets just hope they realise just how much bad feeling Bates was and still is causing merely by his presence, let alone not investing.....

Agree0 Disagree0

5-8 mill..... Ill be lucky. Not in January. And u don't need 20million to get out of this division... It's so tight. One or 2 players could do it.its not guaranteed but it never is in football.... Throwing 20 mill at it is a waste imho. 5 mill maximum in a January.

Agree0 Disagree0

Original poster here. Yes i do go to games, i went to the Charlton game but not gone to as many as i want to. I've showen my loyalty, now i'm waitting for the new owners to show there loyalty. Then i will be at far more games. So do me a favour, don't say i'm not a fan because i was probably going to games when you was still doing the back stroke in your dads nut sack. These people have said they will invest, so there shouldn't be a problem. Mine is, how many times have we been told this?
SGT WARNOCKS BARMY ARMY!!!
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally understand not attending for personal financial or family reasons but not attending unless there's 8 mil in the transfer kitty? Original poster, MOT your statement is everything that's wrong with football today. Leeds fan or good time glory boy - you know the truth!

Agree0 Disagree0

Alan Smith will retire at the end of the season and become manager of Leeds united as Neil Warnock will retire and the new owners want someone who knows all about the club and someone who will put heart and soul into the club.

Believable13 Unbelievable134

We dont want smith he went to play for united???

Agree0 Disagree0

That is probably the most ridiculous post I've ever read on here. Well done!!

Agree3 Disagree0

25 Nov 2012 14:03:41
Thanks for giving me such a good laugh!
No doubt he'll be assisted by Thomas Brolin - Leeds legend!

Agree1 Disagree1

How much of a person are you to post something as pathetic as this, are you Alan Smith ?

Rob MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Possibly the worst suggestion I've ever seen on this site! Chapel A

Agree2 Disagree0

Congratulations,youve just won 1st prize for the dumbest post this month,theres countless others better qualified to manage Leeds out there,he wasnt good enough to come back as a player,so now you want him back as manager,get to bed and stop talking such crap,

Agree0 Disagree0

As if it would be a massive mistake for a first time manager

Agree0 Disagree0

As much as i would love that, its not going to happen. does he even have coaching qualifications?

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't be daft!

fatfredyscat

Agree0 Disagree0

Some people are so dense!! Smith is not bright enough to manage a team

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Nov 2012 16:25:52
he's done all his coaching badges while at newcastle so it is possible

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol and he wants ferdinhand 2 be his numb 2 lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Apart from his lack of managerial experience lack of intellect lack of coaching badges an excellent prediction. He might make a good assistant youth team coach at best.

Agree0 Disagree0

As a manager no chance. We need a proven manager after Warnock or a young manager who is doing well for themselves. Smith back as a coach maybe but nothing else. Not sure who I'd want after Neil goes, whenever that actually is. Depends where we are as a club and who we can attract. Ex player I'd like to see back someday - Dougie Freedman

Crmd

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't panic the man in the white coat is here now. You'll be OK. JD

Agree0 Disagree0

Haha. I don't think some people pick up on sarcasm

Agree0 Disagree0

Anyone who has seen NW on the touchline knows we already have a manager who puts his heart and soul into it. Even if he does retire at the end of the season we want an experienced manager who can handle the pressure not someone who has no experience simply because they're an ex Leeds player! We have gone down the 'Legend' route when chosing managers in the past and it has almost always been a mistake

Agree0 Disagree0

To the poster,

ha.

Agree0 Disagree0

Absolute twaddle!

LR, Northants

PMSL!

Thank you for giving me a good belly laugh.

Eds - you should award a monthly prize for most ridiculous rumour. This one would be a sure thing.
