Believable8 Unbelievable17

I know we've had a lot of red cards but you do realise you've on got 10 players in the starting team? Haha

Agree0 Disagree0

There are 2 players at centre back. =11 players. highly doubtful of going anywhere near gradel or beckford

Agree0 Disagree0

Do you know you have 7 subs? only allowed 5 now in the championship

Agree0 Disagree0

So we're going to sign green and derry but pick brown ahead of them? bring back bowyer!

Agree0 Disagree0

There will be atleast 15 players leaving and one of them will be becchio for around 3 mil to middlesbrough to allow us to make a good promotion challenging team this is why diouf will be signing for us to make this move possible

Agree0 Disagree0

Brown isn't good enough. Only playing now because Howson has gone.

Agree0 Disagree0

Someone has been playing to much Football Manager!

Agree0 Disagree0

A Leeds team with Michael Brown in wont get us promoted.

Can't wait for this summer, some of the names flying around along with Warnock's comments on changing the team his way are pretty exciting. Most happy about the number of defenders names being mentioned, because let's face it, it's top priority. Pearce, Halford, Chambers and Mills are my favourite names so far, but most of the others aren't half bad either.

Leeds United 2012-2013, back to the Premier League. COME ON BOYS!

Leeds united home shirt to be unveiled before saturdays clash against Leicster City followed by the announcement of robert snodgrass signing a new contract. Tune into yorkshire radio tomorrow night from 7pm-8pm for a studio interview with Neil Warnock which will give us a insight to leeds speculation/rumours, his view towards the leeds fans and next years plans.

Up and down we go but loyal we stay, LEEDSLEEDSLEEDS!

Believable15 Unbelievable3

Was in club shop on Thursday and one of staff told me new shirt on sale before Leicester game. Bit like Chelsea white shirt, no collar but KB hoping to cash in by launching it now, lets hope money goes on players !!

Agree0 Disagree0

Tune in to Yorkshire Radio 7pm to 8pm... and miss the Warnock interview, which is 6 til 7.

Agree0 Disagree0

New shirt is on os now looks nice on sale 5th may on leedsunited.com warnock promoting it on a video

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 21:13:41
I know a lot of people will disagree with this, but we all know diouf has possibly the worst attitude in football. But you can't say he's not a good footballer. But if he willing to come to Leeds, sort his attitude out and play some decent football then fine with me

Believable20 Unbelievable14

He is a nasty thug in the John Terry category, but worse! everyone hates us already with no good reason, this signing will give reason. this is not my leeds united anymore if we take him

Agree0 Disagree0

If he does sign, i think it should be one chance, do anything stupid and you're gone.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sort out his attitude?? are you aving a laugh?this excuse of a man as been `sorting his attitude`ALL of his career.the fact is ,a leopard never changes its spots and this is a signing we could do without.MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Rumours emerging that Gradel is unhappy in France and wants to have his contract terminated so he can come back to Leeds on a free! If this is true it is sure to interest bates as he doesn't have to fork out any transfer offers.

Believable28 Unbelievable14

This is gunna be like the alan smith rumor leave it mate

Agree0 Disagree0

They paid us a decent amount of money for him (peanuts to what we should've got) so they're not just going to release him

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would he come back hes been 1 of the best performing players in the french league since the african nations .no chance ,
living in a dream world

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love Max back, but honestly can any one really see it happening, especially on a free!! Would you let him go for free?

Agree0 Disagree0

He came to Leeds because he was unhappy at Leicester, he went to France because he was unhappy at Leeds, now he is unhappy in France he wants to come to Leeds, if he did come back, what is his next stop when he becomes unhappy again? Let me know so I can stick a tenner on it and pay for the kids holiday.

Agree0 Disagree0

Gradel is anything but unhappy in France, he's more than happy. A recent interview with him stated clearly how much he enjoys his football, the club and being back in France. Stop this nonesense.

Agree0 Disagree0

He's here he's there he's every where max gradel, max gradel

Agree0 Disagree0

Would luv gradel back weve been lacking in pace since, we shouldnt have let him go in the first place!

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 16:54:20
My predicted Leeds united team next season:
Lonergen
Halford Pearce Mills Robinson
Snodgrass Clayton Green Diouf
DJ Campbell
Becchio
Subs: Kisnorbo, White, Nunez, Webber, McCormack

Believable12 Unbelievable20

I have funny felling that schmiechel is coming back or
smith
gradel
beckford
johnson
kilkenny
hope it all of them

Agree0 Disagree0

The only people I would like to see back out of them is gradle and beckford maybe Johnson need to look to the future not the past!

Agree0 Disagree0

Why is it every time we are reportedly signing someone people put them in their 'predicted team'?

Agree0 Disagree0

I like the look of this side BUT i would let Becchio go (and take the money) and replace him with Connor Sammon from Wigan, same type of player but faster. We lack pace and havnt had any since gradel and beckford were around.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 16:47:31
Majewksi anyone?

Believable8 Unbelievable15

26 Apr 2012 16:34:21
We've had players over the years that have been known for getting into bother vinnie jones, and even max gradel he was in a gang just like diouf was still doesnt mean they arnt good players diouf is prem class no doubt it you only need to look at the clubs he has played for in his career?

Believable20 Unbelievable10

Correct hes played for a few perm clubs but correct me if im wrong - he's been garbage at all of them!

He also didn't turn many heads in the SPL for rangers. Imo he is possibly the most over rated player to ever grace the premier league. He had one average/half decent world cup n scored an important goal. The rest of his career has been dog s#*t

Agree0 Disagree0

Spitting at fans is next level though.

No place for it in sport let alone Elland road

Agree0 Disagree0

Diouf is a very good solid player but an absolute **** of a rat . we do not want the **** in r camp . the best place he could go is back down the sewers . Mot .

Agree0 Disagree0

Spot trying to make exceptions and ifs and buts, he is over rated and an absolutely disgusting human being, I'd rather have a Sunday league striker playing instead of that dirt. Its a terrible ideal to even consider him, thousands of professional players in the world, so move on from that 1

Agree0 Disagree0

He is a 2 time African player of the year. He definitely has pedigree, but he is permanently in trouble. I think as a club we seriously need to think about the type of personalities we bring in. His is not the type we should consider. As we have seen on this website alone, the first thing everyone thinks of is spitting and being a general berk. Not for us thanks.

Agree0 Disagree0

The clubs he's played at... like Doncaster?

He's a bad influence and can only be a negative impact on the squad. We don't need that.
Besides, he's awful when it comes to discipline, and discipline has been arguably our downfall this season. He would only make things worse

Agree0 Disagree0

Diouf is a fool and over rated leave well alone

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe the rest of the squad can be a good influence on diouf,he needs to buckle down and get on with it,surly he knows he aint got a lot of chances left open to him, i think he could bring a lot to the team

Agree0 Disagree0

Can the FA fine a club for a player spitting in the face of a team mate? I am sure Ross would love to share a dressing room with him

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 16:20:45
wanting a lot of signings this summer! quality ones though wouldnt mind abit of smithy beckford and gradel though!
and harte of course

Believable12 Unbelievable19

Oh yeah,come home smudger,please come home,we dont care that nobody else wants you and your past it,we love you Smiffy,leta just get all the ex Leeds players back eh,plonker.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 16:17:00
Realistic targets for us:
Pearce almost certain
George Boyd
Skacle
Paul Taylor
Paul green

Believable13 Unbelievable9

Boyd would be interesting ! But only if we're forced to sell Snodgrass.. A bit too similar in style

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 15:39:26
Warnock says he wants to turn Elland Road back into a fortress where people are worried to come and play...Maybe thats why he is interested in the likes of El Hadj Diouf.....He can headbutt them on the way out ;-)

Believable25 Unbelievable4

Already turned Elland road into a fortress. In fact changing it's name to Fort knox as it costs so much to get into it.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 15:27:36
Jason Pearce has signed, club to confirm am tomorrow

Believable7 Unbelievable12

How can he sign when he is still under contract with Pompy he will be playing on saturday you idiot! NW made it clear the first signing/s will be anounced the 2nd week on May when the season has actually finished!

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 14:19:44
El Hadj Diouf... There are enough problems with discipline already, the lad does have talent though plus the ability to rattle the opposition, something we have lacked this season.Warnock is maybe the right man to get the best out of him.

Believable15 Unbelievable12

I say we give him a chance look at max he wasn't disapent but turned out to be a great player

MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

People wouldn't mind if he bangs goals in and helps us get up. Played well for Donny and we couldn't get near him when we played them

Agree0 Disagree0

This story is most likely planted by his agent because if we had spoke to him the first thing we tend to do is tell the player not to talk to the papers but bothe diouf and his agent have released statements about him coming to leeds, personally cant see this happening rumour is that grren and pearce will sign at end of contracts with there clubs

Agree0 Disagree0

This guy has been done for spitting on opponents and fans, most notably an 11 year old boy. Do we really want him at our club?

Agree0 Disagree0

A front three of Snodgrass, MCormack and Diouf ( with Becchio available on the bench) is good enough for the Premiership.

Diouf is playing locally, is out of contract, has played for top clubs , has an excellent scoring record and is to say the least a wild card. But it shows that Warnock is thinking creatively and ambitiously. Surely we should welcome that?

Whether NW can control him or Bates would fund him is another matter.

Agree0 Disagree0

Is he going to wear white with pride?, have the right mentallity and be the type of player NW has been saying he wants in his team... No didnt think so, could never see it happening!

Agree0 Disagree0

He has got the fight to get us into the Premiership...Literally ;-)

Agree0 Disagree0

This piece of 'news' was in the daily mail.... enough said! mot

Agree0 Disagree0

I can't believe there are Leeds United fans who actually want this scumbag playing for their club!
The man is disgusting!
He spat at a child ffs!
As for this 'excellent scoring record', I'd love to know where this stat come from, 40 goals in 9 seasons doesn't exactly stand out, just to put that into perspective, Heskey has 66 in the same time period!

No thanks, I very much would be very annoyed and sickened if we ever associated ourselves with this rat!

Agree0 Disagree0

I say give diouf a chance the guy has ability

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 14:06:23
Lee Bowyer released by Ipswitch
Possible move? {Ed020's Note - he's been released for a reason.}

Believable17 Unbelievable19

26 Apr 2012 12:51:41
this is a quote from neil warnock on diouf when he was qpr manager roughly 18 months ago

''I can't see him being at Blackburn much longer because I cant see Steve Kean putting up with someone like that in the dressing room when hes creating a new image. I think hell be the first to go. Good riddance. I hope he goes abroad. I wont miss watching him. Sign him?
I wouldnt want to talk to him."
(Sky Sports) {Ed020's Note - too f*&%!ing right. no thank you diouf, your not wanted at elland road.}

Believable11 Unbelievable8

I hate this guy. I hope to god that we don't sign him. He doesn't deserve to grace the white shirt. Get lost Diouf!!

Agree0 Disagree0

I think we can safely say that you speak for every single Leeds fan. I can't stand him either, he can do one...Mr Warnock no no no no. You say you listen to the Leeds fans well I hope you read this.

Agree0 Disagree0

NO NO NO PLEASE GOD NO! diouf is trading on his past reputation have seen him play for "DONNY" 5 times this season he has lost yards of pace league 1 at best and going downhill

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 11:54:26
Keep hearing DJ Campbell being thrown around with us

I'd be more than happy to have him.
What you think?

Believable33 Unbelievable5

Top quality for a championship striker, would compliment Becchio well with Rossco coming off the bench

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 10:29:29
ruddii skacel of hearts to sign for leeds!

Believable20 Unbelievable17

26 Apr 2012 09:27:43
A colleague in Leicester says that Beckford is away, and wants back to Leeds. It worked last time!

Believable16 Unbelievable11

Bates has already rejected signing Beckford twice this season. No chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

Interview with bates on Yorkshire radio say that we've turned down signing beckford twice this season

So it won't happen

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats cos bates is a tool and he is going to ruin next season . my prediction is 20th come next may

Agree0 Disagree0

I would have beckford bk any day! Him and ross would b a lethal strikeforce in this lg

Agree0 Disagree0

The main reason for rejecting him is his Premier League level wages (reputed as 40k/week) - that would pay for 3 players wages at least

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would they offer him the second time if the first time bates said no? The answer must be that bates would have asked about monies- fee and wages so expressing interest however the resulting answers would have led bates to say no.
It's all down to beckford lowering wages massively but we know he's greedy from his play and contact behaviours

Agree0 Disagree0

To be honest, as good a player as he is, I understand Bates turning it down. He let him go for free because he didn't want to be here anymore. Why pay money for someone who as soon as he gets a sniff will jump ship and join another team because he thinks they're "bigger"?!

Agree0 Disagree0

Not to mention the fact he makes our play one dimensional and easy to play against. He'll serve us better by being at leicester...

Agree0 Disagree0

He wanted to play in the premiership, can you blame him? If I were a professional footballer that's where I'd want to be

Agree0 Disagree0

For a start, Ken Bates is lying one way or another, by claiming that he snubbed Beckford. He has always insisted that he does not get involved directly in football, and also said that he has turned down one signing in the past 3 years.

He once again attempts to insult our intelligence by saying that he didn't want him because we "wanted to move forward". The real reason is obviously wages. Beckford would've been a terrific addition to the squad this year.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would love him back but not on his 35k a week wages!

Agree0 Disagree0

Beckford had the choice to stay or leave and he chose to leave for Premier League football. Two years on and now he comes crawling back to us. Predictable.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leicester need to off load big earners now new rules coming into force on income & expenditure hence rumours about Kasper, Beckford etc both on 40k pw Mills also on big money, the league will be interesting come 13/14 season as no team can spend big due to penalty clauses only exceptions teams relegated from the "Greedy League". Beckford would be good signing though but money stumbling block.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Apr 2012 07:55:11
Leeds are signing DJ Cambell & Jason Pearce very soon. Expect robinsons loan to be made permanent. Have heard templeton rumor highly unlikey but would be a brill signing !

Believable32 Unbelievable6

Pearce is a very strong rumour, good player, hope it is true. DJ Campbell proven goalscorer at this level, would be a good signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

No chance bates wont pay for anyone this season as he really doesn't want leeds to go up

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds can go up next season and bates wont be losing money then ! get down bookies and put some money on defo going up

Agree0 Disagree0

Your obviously wrong then cos robinson has left the club and will not be returning

Agree0 Disagree0
