Use our rumours form to send us leeds transfer rumours.


26 Jul 2011 22:39:09
Does anyone think smith deserves to get some stick on sunday i for one do think he should not just for him going to scum but also apparentely rejecting a move back to his home town club because he wasnt willing to take a pay cut money talks with him he doesnt love leeds

Believable17 Unbelievable18

You did say "apparently" and tbh smith has said nothing publicly nor has his agent on this so cmon guys........ lets concentrate on LEEDS not the opposition (I know that'll fall on deaf ears but heyho)

Agree0 Disagree0

Let's give him grief, obviously we was in talks with him and obviously he rejected us so it's bull he is a Leeds supporter as much as he claimed, if he loved the club he would play for free, id pay Leeds to play for them, I wouldn't want a penny, I understand it's a job and you need a wage but I'm sure I could survive on a couple of grand a week, goes to show money is more important than passion with some people, wish he could read my post and see my view, MOT forever a white

Agree0 Disagree0

We don't know the facts do we? How do we know Leeds have even made an approach ? Let's be honest about this too.. If you could earn that money doing nowt at Newc. He might see out the last year and come next season. Then again we might be checking him out a the weekend to see what sort of reaction he gets before we make a move ? (just a thought)

Agree0 Disagree0

To the last poster - this has actually been suggested a few times by Newcastle fans that he was willing to take a pay cut it was going to happen mid June but he was put off by some very negative comments and threats when he had been out in Leeds. I have no idea of the truth of it but at the end of the day all Grayson has said and Bates, that if he was fit enough and wage demands were right they'd be interested but had no idea if he was available. At official level they've been vague and Newcastle have stayed silent on the matter. I would be disgusted as a Leeds fan and a football supporter if we let the friendly become some sort of slanging match/let's all spit at Smithy sideshow. that would be disrespectful towards our current players and all the other nufc players. just saying...

Agree0 Disagree0

No one has come in for smith officially Newcastle not willing to loan him out want him off wage bill - according to Newcastle rumours reply anyway..don't shoot the messenger

Agree0 Disagree0

Who says he'll be playing on Sunday?

Think about it, why would they give him game time if they don't want him there? Idea behind friendlies is to try get your team sorted & working together before league campaigns start.

I hear Barton will be though & think we should give him some lol

To the tune from West Side Story ...

Joey cant go to America, Joey cant go to America, Joey cant go to America

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi that scum that said I am not a Leeds fan. Yes I rejected a move to Elland Road but that does not mean I don't support my HOME TOWN'S SIDE It was because the money wasn't good enough. Football is a job and so if I am not getting enough money, I wont want to go to that club. Besides, I have already entered advanced talks with an American side.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im sat next to the tunnel on sunday and i will give him hell the money grabbing scum B*****D. one word sums up smith and that is JUDAS. leeds are better of without him

Agree0 Disagree0

If and I say a big IF, Smith has even been given the option by Leeds or Newcastle to come back, which I don't believe he has, why would he, with the amount of grief he gets from some of our supporters?
Show him and other teams that we have some class and applaud him, or at worst ignore him. It will only play into the hands of other teams supporters. I will personally applaud him, just in case there is a chance he will return, but more because I don't believe any of the rumours and I do remember how he played for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sad Little Boys Very Sad Just support your team Boys We Are Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

What sort of person writes on here pretending to be alan smith?? grow up you weapon

Agree0 Disagree0

I might be wrong, and no doubt someone will correct me if I am, but I remember Leeds getting relegated, being 121M in debt and Man Utd being the only club to come in for Smith. So all in all it's not really his fault he left Leeds for Man Utd (nobody else wanted him). Like I said though, I might be wrong.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes highlighted his true nature and colours hes considering going to O.C for petes sak over a return to his boyhood team, its all about the Wonga

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope his bank account keeps him fulfilled in later life, Id rather be a hero to my hometown club. But hey Im not a greedy primadonna.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im sat next to the tunnel on sunday and i will give him hell the money grabbing scum B*****D. one word sums up smith and that is JUDAS. leeds are better of without him

GO ON SON

Agree0 Disagree0

Now AS is on here texting ha his fans get more disillusioned by the day.

Agree0 Disagree0

You did say "apparently" and tbh smith has said nothing publicly nor has his agent on this so cmon guys........ lets concentrate on LEEDS not the opposition (I know that'll fall on deaf ears but heyho)

Thats exactly what proves its all true, if he had nothing to feel guilty for and was our saving grace his representitives would have come out and discreditted the negative transfer since. They havent, which is odd if hes considering to cushion the support for a return. Blinkers spring to mind here.

Agree0 Disagree0

We don't know the facts do we? How do we know Leeds have even made an approach ? Let's be honest about this too.. If you could earn that money doing nowt at Newc. He might see out the last year and come next season. Then again we might be checking him out a the weekend to see what sort of reaction he gets before we make a move ? (just a thought)
If hes the type of player that would sit out for a full season on a bench simply to collect his ridiculous wages, then I dont want anything to do with him, and dont want a player like that anywhere near are club. What kinda fan are you to excuse that, Newcastle or not he's a Leech

Agree0 Disagree0

He was willing to take a pay cut it was going to happen mid June but he was put off by some very negative comments and threats when he had been out in Leeds.
Where ya heard this?
>>>>> I doubt it he's been home to leeds many times over the 8 yrs and he's always been treated the same, dont make out its some revelation to him all of a suddem *Rollseyes*

Agree0 Disagree0

It will only play into the hands of other teams supporters????? IT's a bloody Friendly

Agree0 Disagree0

Like his fee stopped us form going tits up? Please

Agree0 Disagree0

Like his fee stopped us form going tits up? Please
------------------------------------------
When did I say his fee stopped us from "going tits up"? I was pointing out that Leeds Utd (this almightly club that, in all honesty, still doesn't have a pot to piss in) was in an absolute mess and players had to be sold. Manchester Utd were the only club to come in for Alan Smith so he had very little options open to him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Making out he's our saviour because of his transfer fee......Please

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 22:38:52
Would Jason Puncheon be a good addition to our squad - rumour is he's available and only Ipswich and Millwall showing any interest..

Believable18 Unbelievable8

Not good enough. Better than Paynter but unreliable. Thats why not much interest.

Agree0 Disagree0

Better than paynter? you do realise he's a winger don't you

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 22:32:05
Does anyone know if smith is going to play sunday at elland road because if he is i would expect a bit of abuse from the majority of the fans

Believable8 Unbelievable13

No idea tbh something tells me it's doubtful he's well down the pecking order at Newcastle and who knows he might get injured before he plays us
I've always stuck up for mr smith on here but tbh i reckon he should feign injury and not play because sadly there's too many baying for blood. No idea what Ed thinks? {Ed001's Note - I think a player should always play when fit enough to do so.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Feign Injury? What kinda fan are you? He gets paid 60 thousand pounds a week, he should at least play in friendlies it isnt like he'll get a start in the real season.

I agree fully ed, theirs some numpties on here pal I wonder what theyd think if leeds players faked injuries. Unbelievable Jeff

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 21:02:54
Leeds draw 1-1 in Norway but at least we've sorted something out for next season, McCormack DOESN'T take penalties, taken 2 , misssed 2 , even when no pressure in friendlies

Believable11 Unbelievable4

26 Jul 2011 20:46:12
Ed. Why wasn't snodgrass in tonights squad? Did he even go to Norway?

Believable4 Unbelievable5

No he didnt go cause as i believe he's injured as well as o'brien i think

Agree0 Disagree0

Still injured hoping to play sat as said by grayson in an interview recently on lutv.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 20:41:20
I'm liking the look of Nunez for next season has done good pre season and everytime ive seen him play last season looks decent. Come on Nunez all we need now is a decent LB with eric back fingers crossed, decent right back instead of connolly, and someone upfront like hulse or cresswell back on cheap, or not sure if he has gone anywhere yet but carew Harry...MOT

Believable5 Unbelievable4

R u serious hulse r cresswell?thats old school mate..need far better quality than that..

Agree0 Disagree0

Come on they done well when with us, and i rate hulse quite a bit, but i wouldnt play them instead of mccormack or becchio mind but decent back up, but id go for carew if still free, high wage though

Agree0 Disagree0

I love big Jonny Carew but theres no chance of him coming to the championship or Leeds being able to afford him

Agree0 Disagree0

Want lichaj as right back, have bodor as left back

Agree0 Disagree0

Connolly? I must have been watching a different team last season because up until him getting injured i for one thought he was our most consistent performer. its the centre back pairing we need to get right

Agree0 Disagree0

I d rate O brien and Kisnorbo in the middle of our defense. My bet is that SG is looking for a left back and another Centre Mid

Agree0 Disagree0

I jus dont think connolly is good at tackling he's good at getting up the wing but not so defending same as bessone what a flop

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 19:49:21
That's fair enough. Like you guys would be my dream for Leeds to challenge this year. Think west ham are very strong with players like Nolan in the team. Think forest have brought some good players in , same with Ipswich. But on the other hand think the players Leicester have brought in are not too great. You never know with the championship it's a very hard league. Your defo right with let's get behind them. Far too much negatives.

Believable6 Unbelievable4

Yeah, I agree, although i think there are strong teams, we can compete with our fortress ER, our tradition, the team spirit, the quality manager and the attacking options we have got.

WER'E THE CHAMPIONS, CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE ( repeat ad infinitum)

Agree0 Disagree0

I am a Leeds nut based down here in the south and I believe another team to watch out for is Southampton. I know they only just come up but they are a very strong attacking team. Even with our strongest team out I am worrying re our first game

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 19:46:51
Does any 1 have the score of 2days match in denmark {Ed045's Note - Norway* and it's 1-1.. Nunez scores again.

Believable5 Unbelievable0

And it's in Norway. At least you were vaguely in the right geographical region.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 19:44:19
I own an executive limo service in Leeds and have just had a call to take a Mr Clingan from Leeds station to Elland Road tomorrow morning.(Hope he tips well).
Sammy Clingan from Coventry to Leeds United?

Believable10 Unbelievable17

Ha ha ha ha It makes me laugh, absolute b***ks good banter though. Don't want Sammy Clingan though. Certainly not for a mill.

Agree0 Disagree0

First of all who is he meeting at Elland Road as everyone is in Norway at the moment, and if Simon or anyone else connected with the club was available to deal with him it would be at Thorpe Arch where the Medicals take place.

Agree0 Disagree0

You being straight with us mate ? ask sammy the info tomorrow or ask your driver to ?
so ..whats your limo service called ( I need one after our last company let us down with clients )

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 19:42:00
Reality check for the negative 'fans'. The biggest frustration of last season was giving away leads and turning 3 points into 1. If you convert just half of the draws from last season into wins we would have finished with 86 points and would have been second Therefore, tightening up at the back and having more experience in midfield is what's needed. Current signings follow that theory. You don't need world beaters to get out of the Championship - look back at previous promotees. Evolution not revolution is what's required. We tried to buy success before and look what happened. When we get back into the Premiership this time I want it to last - even if it takes a few seasons. MOT.

Believable12 Unbelievable2

26 Jul 2011 19:09:15
Snodgrass not in squad for tonight's game - did he travel to Norway, or is he currently in talks with Wigan?

Believable2 Unbelievable13

Snograss has been nursing an injury for last couple of weeks. Am sure he left out as a pre-caution

Agree0 Disagree0

If you were a true fan you would know why he wasn't in the squad as in he has a bit of a knock and Grayson is hoping that him and ob will play some part sun against Newcastle.

Agree0 Disagree0

As stated in many other posts, Robert Snodgrass has a slight injury that requires rest and some physiotherapy. He did not play in Norway due to his injury. There has been no contact from Wigan Athletic FC and if there was, Leeds United would inform them that Robert Snodgrass is not for sale.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 18:38:00
just heard from a good sorouce harpal singh is coming back to leeds and its belived he will be on low wages just hope he is as good as before we are leeds

Believable5 Unbelievable14

Harpel Sigh didnt make it with Dundalk in Ireland years ago not a chance of him coming back as a player maybe as a coach but thats the height of it RF

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks for the post Harpal, good luck with your future careeer. It's not at Leeds.

Check out the "Oh Mendy" tune to the footage of Alex Mendy on You tube. Is a new song for the Revie Stand born?

Believable4 Unbelievable1

26 Jul 2011 19:54:26
Rumour: I heard that Ross McCormack is actually capable of scoring penalties. I don't believe it though.

Believable1 Unbelievable15

Two goals is his sum total of goals for us and he has taken 2 pens

Agree0 Disagree0

He may be a terrible penalty taker but he's still gonna be quality for us :)

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 18:11:50
Please can we stop all the Stockdale moaning, yes he's from Leeds and yes he would have preferred a move to Leeds & yes he is half decent. The negatives outweigh this however, he's 25yrs old, has only played 13 games for Fulham since 2008, and previously played for Darlington, he is Fulhams 3rd choice keeper, please remember that. Lonergan is a proven, experienced keeper at this level, and we own him , so no recall by some tin pot club in the Prem League like Fulham, home of the Jackson statue lol

Believable11 Unbelievable4

26 Jul 2011 17:54:25
Stop f**king around with the East stand Bates and sign Mendy up

Believable10 Unbelievable5

Like to see mendy given a 6mth contract with 6mth option to see how good he is?

Agree0 Disagree0

Look's like McCormack has his boots on the wrong feet again....he just missed another penalty in Norway

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 17:13:46
just seen jonjo shelvey at thorp arch , rumoured to be season long loan -

Believable3 Unbelievable17

Mervyn day chief scout - good link - he raised the lad at west ham and charlton

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah coz you are allowed to loiter around thorpe arch arent you. Clown

Agree0 Disagree0

He is joining Blackpool it was a deal made when Liverpool signd Adams

Agree0 Disagree0

Liverpool have signed Adams Henderson and downing on top of the midfielders they already have so you never know. i would love to have him

Agree0 Disagree0

Has anyone any idea what the ticket price is for 2moro's match at BPA is?

Believable1 Unbelievable5

Hi m8, bradford game isnt till 9th august. for some strange reason on the lees website they wrote an artile stating that the norway game was the last pre season friendly, when we play newcastle on sunday. and then the bradford game is a week after that.

Agree0 Disagree0

A Leeds 11 play against Bradford park avenue 2moro in a pre season friendly {Ed045's Note - On the OS it says the Norway game is the PENULTIMATE which means one before the last.

Agree0 Disagree0

Its not just an entertainment, its an education

Agree0 Disagree0

We are playing bradford park avenue tonight but its a weakened side althought ive heard lonergan might be playing, dont no the price tho sorry mate but when i watched them down newport county both times it was a tenner.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 16:55:00
Swansea in for Leroy Lita. I guess a) we couldn't afford him b) he might not want to come c) Boro wouldn't sell him to a Championship rival, but it would be nice to see us go after someone like that. Full of pace and a different striker to the type we have already. Just a thought.

Believable5 Unbelievable3

26 Jul 2011 16:52:35
See Stockdale has joined Ipswich. Said they were a big club. He has now been nominated foe the Perrier comedy award for that gem He has to say that but he wanted to come to Leeds Hope the Ipswich fan is reading this.

Believable6 Unbelievable1

26 Jul 2011 16:50:44
Just listened to an interview on LUTV with Andy Lonergan. He made it perfectly clear that the contract terms offered by LUFC were never an issue and contrary to rumour were not well below other offers. He said he always wanted to join Leeds but he has his family to consider. Apparantly they have a child who needs medical attention and they need to be near a trusted hospital. That issue has now been resolved. So can we now stop all the crap about LU and just get behind the team, Manager and Chairman.

Believable2 Unbelievable3

Cos he'd say on LUTV our offer was sh1te but no one else wanted me

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 16:45:40
anyone think we should do a swap deal with wigan for snoddy. £6 million plus james macarthur (good midfielder creative SG admitted an intrest last year) or victor moses (good player good on the wings used to play as a striker so because of our injuries he could start up front) i think this would be a good deal for leeds
MOT

Believable7 Unbelievable8

I would take Moses and McCarthur for Snodgrass and 0 money, every single day of the week.

That's not because I don't rate Snodgrass, i think he's great, easily one of our best players, but the other two would be fantastic. Sadly it won't happen

Agree0 Disagree0

True pal I would have either but if SG and captain birdseye want to keep snoddy then they should offer Wigan something that they would Not want to accept. But if I had the chance I would take either of them + a couple of million for snoddy

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 16:39:58
i would love snoddy and gradel to stay but i think if we get offered good money for either i think they should go as long as the money is reinvestd back into the team.

Believable2 Unbelievable8

Since when as transfer money gone straight back into team?it would go into KBs coffers like transfer money of the past.sorry, i forgot about 200k for AL.

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont be so f*& *Ng stupid.....if either get sold the money will go in bates back pocket or towards more stadium improvemets ready for when he sells....it certainly wont go towards new players...it will be more chep players like lonergan....no deal

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 15:51:38
Donny got rid of wellens because they couldnt afford to keep him and he has already stated that he may have to move on from leicster to play games mot

Believable4 Unbelievable3

My uncle is mates with richie wellens brother and rumour was he was meant to be coming to us at the start of last season but it never happened, so cant seeing it happen now, quality player though

Agree0 Disagree0

If he is available we should snap him up, quality player for this league and has always been a thorn in our side over the years, for Donny and Leicester

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 15:18:40
anyone else offloading the rubbish on football manager and NOT loaning out aidy white, adam clayton and ramon nunez or is it just me?

leeds to sign MARLON HAREWOOD

Believable6 Unbelievable15

What's your source cos hes gone to a chinese team..

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope not hes a donky reminds me of tresor kandol & enoch showunmi and Paynter....How did they do for leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds got no chance in championship.. which makes me very happy...

bates will take you back to league one as we come up..
utt {Ed037's Note - You really have no idea what you're talking about

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 14:04:22
Just testing out a theory on here, given the amount of people full of negativity & downright silly people who think we should be throwing money around and Bates is somehow not doing the best things for the club.

Team that started against Derby last season...

Schmeichel
Connolly
Naylor
Collins
Bessone
Sam
Howson
Johnson
Watt
Becchio

Subs - Higgs, Hughes, White, Bruce, Bromby, Clayton, Grella

What if the team we lined up with against Southampton this season was...

Lonergan
Connolly
Kisnorbo
O'Brien
Parker
Gradel
Howson
Brown
Snodgrass
Nunez
McCormack

Subs - Rachubka, Bruce, White, Bromby, Lees, Clayton, Paynter

Now for me this is already stronger than the beginning of last season with only ONE signing. And this is before the Prem Teams decide on who they will send out on Loan (of which i expect us to get 2 high quality players).

This is also signing none of the trialists we have in (and i expect he'll sign up Bodor and Mendy).

SG will also be bringing in at least two other full time additions, I reckon one of these will be for a tidy sum as well.

Really don't understand what's wrong with people, there's plenty of time, Grayson and Bates are playing a shrewd game that will only put us in a stronger position.

Believable10 Unbelievable6

Well said that man I said something similar on the Leeds banter page - nearly the same team too apart from you can have only 5 subs :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree completely, best post on here for a while i personally think we are a more solid team with these signings and should be better once we get a couple more.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thank god there is another leeds fan out there who is looking on the brightside, forget what could have been with potential signings and lets get behind the boys instead of suggesting will have a s**te season. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Absolutely right the team/squad for the forthcoming season is far stronger in all fields players are quicker, and better technically in every position, i'm really happy

Agree0 Disagree0

Well said the so called fans are doing my nut leeds have a far better tem/squad this season, SG has built well and at least betes isn't doing Ridsdale (mupet)

Agree0 Disagree0

Surely that's three signings? Rachubka, Lonegran & Brown. I do agree that's a stronger team though and also doesn't take into consideration that we're missing Becchio and & Somma with injuries

Agree0 Disagree0

I think this is actually a very poor leeds team and if it isnt strengthened fast they will really struggle, goals are going to be very hard to come by, and what could be a leaky defence.

Agree0 Disagree0

This seasons side looks better because last season we apparently only started with 10

Agree0 Disagree0

Why did we start with only 10 men against Derby?

Agree0 Disagree0

This years team would be stronger. last years team has only 10 players you tube.

Agree0 Disagree0

Completely agree. you just got to ingnore the suppose to be Leeds fans who got nout good to say mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yep, i've been caught out twice, it is three signings (albeit only 2 in the starting 11).

Kilkenny was the other who played against Derby, that's how memorable he was.

Aside from the 2 schoolboy errors, hopefully the point was made that we are in fact stronger than last year. To the post above who thinks goals will be hard to come by, McCormack will score at least as many as Becchio did last year, and then we've got Becchio to come back fit. Nunez will get as many as Somma, and Gradel, Howson and Snodgrass will chip in with the usual.

I wasn't suggesting we're the finished article, far from it, but i have faith that the missing ingredients will be found and if we play the loan market well (which I think will be stronger this year) we will be much, much stronger in every position this year than last.

What more can we ask for ?

Agree0 Disagree0

To the original post- I am with u all the way mate, its a better team to start with and should get better with more additions Big up that man
STAN THE WHITE.

Agree0 Disagree0

I do agree with you on being positive and not negative but still dont think the team is very strong. Other teams have strengthened there teams considerably. I hope not but we might find ourselves being mid table. What do you think.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree a much stronger and fitter team. also you have left of lloyd sam who i think if fit could be a great player next season as he is a goal scorer from midfield MOT lets get behind united

Agree0 Disagree0

There are simply too many children on this site pretending to be Leeds fans

Agree0 Disagree0

I must admit, I still have concerns re central defence and midfield, but i hadn't thought of it like that. You make a good point. I agree we are in a stronger starting position and its not all doom and gloom.With a couple of quality additions i think we could get playoffs. We have to be stronger than last year though..... the Championship is stronger this year.

Agree0 Disagree0

The derby team does look thin on reflection tho also only has 10 men

agree tho that we've not lost any of the must keeps from the squad and gained lonegran, brown and poss 2-3 to come MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with all that but would be good to get another full back incase of injuries

Agree0 Disagree0

I am very positive about next season, however, the real reason that team looks weaker, particularly in attack, was that Gradel did not start that game becasue he was banned, Snodgrass was injured after pre season in Norway, Kisnorbo and parker were also injured

So I am not sure how much stronger/different it really is? Must admit though that defence does look better if Kisnorbo & O'brien stay fit and we get the left back on trial as cover for Parker's inevitable injuries. A couiple more signings on loan and I will be totally positive.

Agree0 Disagree0

Good that we have a (sort of) positive vibe here. To the guy above who says other teams are considerably stronger, who do you think this is, give me some examples? Not having a go, just good for a discussion...

Agree0 Disagree0

I posted that the division is stronger. I think there is strength in depth-

West Ham- great manager for this level, will continue to make signings. Some prem players already.

Blackpool- Will play positive attacking football again, and score a lot at this level. Don't think they will fall away.

Forest- Made a host of experienced signings on top of a team that has been consistently in the play-offs.

Cardiff- I rate Malky McKay. His team will play direct, hard working football. They have lost players, but have signed players and could be a threat.

Ipswich- Good manager, quality signings such as Emanuel Thomas, Bowyer, Stockdale, Chopra. Have to be there or there abouts.

Reading- May lose Shane Long but will be a threat the way they play and the way they finished last season indicates that they will be reasonably strong.

Boro- Still a host of premiership/ experienced SPL players as well as promising young players.

Leicester-Ok, i am not convinced by 'gun for hire' Sven. Even discounting that they have spent a lot an have some good players for this level.

Birmingham- potentially ok, if they overcome their problems. though possibly not.

Finally; I really think that one of Brighton or Southampton could do very well and get playoffs at least. They will be confident, have made some shrewd signings and play positive football.

I am sure that some of these teams will live up to the billing, but even accounting for that, it is a strong division with big clubs ( of which we are one) that will require a big effort and a quality squad.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just like to point out that we can only have 5 subs this year lol :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds team for soton.... ideally would be

lonergan
samuel/bodor (parker WILL be injured lol)
kisnorbo
bromby/o'brien (if fit)
connoly (lichaj if we sign him again)
snods
gradel
brown
howson
nunez
mccormack

subs. rachubka, bruce, sam, paynter, clayton...

plus we will make additions to this.... pretty sure mendy will sign... we need slightly more depth but im positive now we have 2 keepers and some promising trialists along with a proven hard midfield man.... MARCHIN ON TOGETHERRRRRR

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 14:36:29
I have a friend who is on the board of York City football club. He has told me that they are close to signing Lewis and Nathan Turner on season long loan deals. He also told me that is why the pair are not in the squad to face Sandjeford in Norway today.

Believable7 Unbelievable8

If they are loaned out will more likely a league 1/2 club just like Tom Lees, Aidan White, and Adam Clayton

Agree0 Disagree0

Or the fact the seniors are having more of a run out and the younger ones are playing at bradford PA

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope they do get loaned out. neither will play a big part for leeds this season. the experience will do them good.

Leeds are set to go into talks with trialist Alex Mendy and Isaiah Osbourne to discuss a short term contract which will keep them at Elland road untill January.

Jlloyd Samuel will end his trial at Elland Road as Grayson does not believe he is the solution to the left back problem, and also believes his wage demands are too expensive for just back up.

Leeds to step up their bid to bring Eric Lichaj on a season long loan after finding it hard to bring in a permanent deal for a solution to the full back crisis.

Leeds have rejected enquiries from 4 premier league clubs for Max Gradel. Gradel is happy to stay at Leeds but his agent is desperate for the pair to enter discussions on a new contract for the Ivorian.

Simon Grayson has enquired about the possibility of signing Sanchez Watt on another season long loan. However, Arsenal want a permanent deal as they believe it will be hard for Sanchez Watt to break into the first team any time soon.

A friend of mine Rick passmoor works for Leeds uniteds football in the community scheme has told me that Leeds are hoping to tie up deals for lichaj (loan with a view to permanent), Keith Andrews 800k and are looking to re-sign rob Hulse

Believable14 Unbelievable8

Andrews no thanks Hulse and Eric back yes. Andrews no better than Brown, one side ball merchant is all we need thank you.

Agree0 Disagree0

You obviously dont know him that well if you cant spell his surname?

Agree0 Disagree0

He has no friends so has to make up rumours so it looks like he does wouldn't mind either hulse or lichaj back both would add strength to the team

Agree0 Disagree0

Not very likely - Rick will tell you that FiTC are the mushrooms at ER - kept in the dark and shatupon

Theres a few rumours going round about richie wellens from leicster does anybody rate him as a player

Believable14 Unbelievable4

Great footballer there is no way they would allow him to leave for another team in the same league.

Agree0 Disagree0

Fat and slow no thanks. why do u think donny sold him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes he is really good. Remember him at Doncaster? I agree with the other comment, he is far too valuable to Leicester.

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought he played intelligent balls and was very reliable at donny

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't think there's much chance but SG should walk to Leicester to sign him if there was even half a chance. He totally ran the Leicester midfield last season. Doesn't anyone remember the home game against the Rovers 1st season in league 1. We lost one nil and couldn't get the ball off Wellens all game. Great player. Only blot on his CV is he's ex Man*re youth team.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah hes a quality player and he can score a few goals aswel, my uncle is mates with his brother

Is there any truth in matty derbyshire been on trial

Believable12 Unbelievable9

Would love Matt Derbyshire on loan or permanent. I know he had a bad season last year, but he is a good age, mobile and a good finisher. Won the cup and league with Olympiakos in Greece and looked promising at Blackburn before that. England U21 International. Doubt we could get him though. Sadly.

Billy Paynter is considering leaving Leeds United...saying that he is not in the right mind of frame at the club where he feels confidence in a boom of goals the way he used to get at Swindon. Feels that a new start at a new club will allow him to find form again.

Believable17 Unbelievable7

Hope so he is Sh*t Grella is better and he's still on the books at least he has pace and can hit a barn door

Agree0 Disagree0

Hopefully, as much as a nice lad he is, he was a let down last season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Pretty please.....

God I hope this is true ...

Agree0 Disagree0

Why make these lies? and why wont leeds fans give him chance? fair enough 1 goal isnt enough for his efforts last season but he had to struggle to break into a team which was scoring the highest amount of goals for most of the season once he gets a goal or two this year they will come flying in

Agree0 Disagree0

A proven goalscorer but hasn't happened for him- a move away would be better for all. but why sell Grella? Whenever i have seen him play he has looked lively and capable and, more importantly, scored goals. Give him a chance

Agree0 Disagree0

Their not lies it s the truth and Leeds fans have given him many chances. You said it 1 goal isn t enough for his efforts last season especially as you said Leeds was scoring the highest amount of goals but, therefore creating more chances for him to convert which he couldn't, he was given ample playing time to break in and prove a point yet as you said he struggle to break into that team, why because he's simply not good enough he's a league 1 player at best.

Agree0 Disagree0

Tbh I'd much rather have Paynter over Grella, Grella is s**te but he doesn't believe it just like Kasper. Paynter passes well and has fairly good vision, he'll be alright as long as we play him with nunez, gradel, howson and possibly mendy (if we sign him, I hope we do) MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I went to the sheffield wednesday game at the weekend and he got subbed off at half time, when we arrived back at the train station after the game billy paynter was there already, i dont know if he had a fall out with grayson or anything but it doesnt look good to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 12:47:03

Heard that Leeds have agreed a 1.2million fee with Coventry for sammy clinghan which will be paid 100k every month like Leicester are doing over schmeichel

Believable11 Unbelievable1

Apparently the Michael Johnson season long loan deal is back on

Agree0 Disagree0

Think he would be a good signing, but first.. he's not worth 1.2m, second.. Bates wont spend 1.2m.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be great if this is true, but why would Leeds spend that much money?

Agree0 Disagree0

Kasper was arrogant, selfish, he played for himself. He did not wear his heart on his sleeve his heart was never in it. He did make some good saves but a goalkeeper is only as good as his defence. I'm glad leicester have to deal with that d**k now. Lonergan is a nice guy who can get attached to a club, that's why he stayed at Preston for 11 years. He's a quality championship keeper, and remember he may have let in 4 goals in one half but remember kasper let in 5 that second half and our attack is quality Preston didn't even have Ian Hume at the time. Lonergan>Schmeichel

Agree0 Disagree0

Schmeichel didn't play against preston btw, it was higgs

Agree0 Disagree0

Bit harsh that. I though Kasper did as much as he could considering our defence was rubbish. We can only see how Lonergan will match up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates wouldnt pay ote cos he will just use schmiechels money

26 Jul 2011 10:05:50
Difference in Kasper and andy -
Kasper shouted and blamed the defence,
andy will shout and organise it.

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Difference between Kasper and Andy - Kasper madw world class saves and put his body on the line every game and played with his heart on his sleeve, when things didnt go well, he shouted encouragement to the team, got the ball quickly from the ball boys and got it back out into the park to lift a sense of urgency to the players, Andy Lonergan let 4 goals in the first half against Leeds at Elland Road last season, Didnt cope well with the big crowd and got his team relegated last season. Thats the diference. Least Lonergan has experience tho. Saying that I think Dave Beasant is still knocking about, and hey Shane Higgs has been there aint he? Didnt Shane Higgs get this club promoted to the championship? Happened same when Mervyn Day got us promoted to the big time and then found himself behind Lukic the season after.

Agree0 Disagree0

Kasper got the ball back out into the park? The retail park near elland road perhaps. His distribution is trully awfull. Aimlessly smashashing the ball as hard as he could lost us possession so many tomes last season. It was so frustrating to watch.

Agree0 Disagree0

Go and support Fester for ****'s Sake you muppet - you are exactly what Leeds don't need as a so called supporter - Lonergan is highly rated by professionals which you obviously aint
Do one - Leeds need everyone behind them thick and thin

Agree0 Disagree0

Kasper was full of his own importance. Poor at crosses, poor communication and poor attitude. good riddance. Agree with person above, get behind us or do one.

Agree0 Disagree0

Kasper was arrogant, selfish, he played for himself. He did not wear his heart on his sleeve his heart was never in it. He did make some good saves but a goalkeeper is only as good as his defence. I'm glad leicester have to deal with that d**k now. Lonergan is a nice guy who can get attached to a club, that's why he stayed at Preston for 11 years.

Lonergan>Schmeichel

Agree0 Disagree0

Apart from the first few games where Kasper was outstanding, I still thought he was too small for a keeper. Good business to sell him, he was never going to sign again. I much prefer AL, 6ft 4 and loyal to a club - that's what we need. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 10:00:16
I sometimes wonder if i support a different team to most of the posters on here We've lost one average goalkeeper and two half decent but occasionally woeful central midfielders and kept all of our actual star quality players. Signings haven't been huge in number, but will supplement what is already here, especially if LITERALLY 1 or 2 more arrive.
As for Bates the man saved our club. And to those creating there own bad news, sat there waiting for gradel and snodgrass to go, think about whats happened in the past Beckford, Johnson and Kilkenny were all allowed to play out there contracts, despite offers from other clubs. That doesn't sound like a chairman who interested in his own pocket before the side.

Believable19 Unbelievable5

I tend to agree with this. I wish ken would spend more money, & when you let 2 of your starting midfielders go for free you should be a little worried. But imagine if he sold killa & brad in january, we probably wouldn't even of been close to the playoffs had he done that. He has around 1mil left from the kasper sale (plus whatever he had in the budget already) to buy 1 more midfielder (probably) & sure up the defence a bit. I do wish he spent more money to get us where we belong, but i believe in what he is doing for the most part. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Nice one mate, at long last someone with brains

Agree0 Disagree0

Well said Though I do wish Gradel would sign a new contract Hit the nail on the head with 4 star players, hopefully we can build on that amount next season when we're in a better position to do so

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think i could have put it better myself. everyone seems glum about the season but weve actually made 2 good signings and Grayson said he's hopefull of 2 more before end of week.
to put Johnson in the 'average' bracket does him justice - he was awful at times, Killa wasnt consistent enough and was often a sub so no great loss. Kasper was a quality GK for me but we have replaced him with a great GK too.

cheer up everyone with 2 more faces our squad will be stronger than last year

Agree0 Disagree0

Johnson was occasionally awful but then he was also occasionally brilliant.
Some games he was the only player with any spark as he had a brilliant engine.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with you there mate. To be honest it's in Ken Bates best interests that we get to the premiership. That's where the real money can be made. He's not gonna scrimp and save and sell the best players to hit the glass ceiling of the championship. He wants us a big as Chelsea were when he left. Then I bet he'd like to sell us to some eccentric foreign billionaire.

Agree0 Disagree0

Finally, finally, finally, some common sense being written My faith has been restored in Le Blanc.....MOT...

Agree0 Disagree0

Very well said It was embarassing and pathetic to hear the Bates Out chants at Hillsborough on Saturday - I wish those small mindless minority would leave

Agree0 Disagree0

Just like to add my agreement to this. I think the majority of posters on here are in the minority of actual fans. Our club was in a financial mess only a couple of years ago and could easily have gone under, have people completely forgotten this? Bates may well be an opinionated and canniving old man, but lets be realistic, he's pulled the club from the brink of disaster to being on a sound financial footing and we have a team who were challenging for promotion last year, and all I can see thats happened is that we have lost some not very successful playeres since then. Everybody who moaned about Clayton, Nunez et al not playing last year, well maybe the lack of old journeymen coming in means SG now thinks they are ready for the first team

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with the posters who are saying we have not lost much.
To the one who posted - the only player with any spark as he had a brilliant engine - reference johnson, you must have watched a different season to me. Johnson couldn't run. He fastest pace was a jog. He couldn't tackle. He was the worst player i have ever had the misfortune of watching at elland road.
I think we have a great side now, and actually feel the great youngsters we have won't get the games I think they should have this season. When we have a fully fit team SG is going to have difficult decisions who to play.

Agree0 Disagree0

At last some realists here.
Loans worked well for clayton, lees, nunez became an idol, and especially somma transformed by gaining confidence at a lower level. It's all very well moaning that nunez was performing when we needed him but he needed regular games, and to drag him back to warm the bench would have knocked his confidence.
I think Paynter would gain from a couple of months in the lower league to find his feet again, pity Grella could not see the gains clearly.
Anyway we all want a rich Arab but it's a pipe dream that still has flaws(man city look souless) . We got bates, he saved us, sticks up for us, doesn't care about being liked, and never falls out with his manager.
Embrace what we have got, a great club with entertaining players, and no debt and that to me is better than those sleepless nights of a few years back

teeth

Agree0 Disagree0

26 Jul 2011 09:58:33
Is Lonergan our new no 1. In fact he let in more than Kasper let in last season. Could be the defence
was weak for both Leeds and Preston. Still work to be done.We still need a LB.CB, CM and maybe a loan striker until Beechio recovers from his injuries.
The defence needs to be sorted out before the new season comes round. Still light in midfield. I am sure
Grayson will get in the quality players and seriously
mount a challenge for promotion into the PREMIER
LEAGUE. In Grayson we trust. UP LEEDS ALL THE WAY TO THE PREMIER LEAGUE .THAT IS WHERE WE
BELONG.

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Casper conceded 70, Preston as a whole conceded 77, Lonergan didn't let all of them in..

Also Preston got relegated and Leeds were just off the Play-offs, you can't hold the keeper responsible for all those goals

as sad as it seems, I think we need 4 more signings to have any chance of challenging this season. Keeping Snoddy and Max for now is great but will they both want to stay in January when we are a mid-table side with no hope of promotion? I dont think so

Bates needs to put his hand in his pocket, sign a CB, a LB, another CM and a ST to fill in for Becchio and Somma as Paynter couldnt hit a cows ass with a banjo and then we would be in business MOT

we have lost, lichaj, naylor, mcartney, johnson, kilkenny, livermore, bannan, 7 players who were on loan or signed.none will be greatly missed, lichaj ok.
so what have we done, got brown, , whoopee woo.
we need to sign or loan at least 4 more players.and at least 2 of those need to be of prem quality, not trialists for people who get released by cardiff or osbourne whom villa fans i work with say is terrible.
im getting a little despondent , please give us something to shout about
who agrees

Osbourne looked okay against Sheffield for back up, Clayton looked far better than Kilkenny last season. Though I agree that we need a big player to partner him, if we get Lichaj on loan, a centre back & a loan striker, I will be happy

Agree0 Disagree0

Barry Bannan played one game for Leeds, against Nottingham Forest, I watched the game on sky, Bannan was brilliant. I was shocked he didnt play again. Livermore however was awful.McCartney was ok going forward but i didnt think much to his defending. Grayson raved about McCartney until he turned up late for a training session, after that McCartney was simply not good enough lol.

Quite funny actually, Stockdale & his wife both stated that his ideal choice would be Leeds. However, we didn't agree to the 24h recall clause, so he never got the choice.

I wouldn't be surprised if he 'accidentally' lets a goal in against us. Now tootle off on your tractor, farming fairy.

Agree0 Disagree0

The only way you will play for England is If your premier league. You can have stockdale (ON LOAN) but he will never be yours, and while you get all dizzy and blurry eyed at being high up in the championship for the first time in your lives we will carry on, chipping away, grinding out, filling our ground home and away. There is no race, we sampled the high life for many years which makes us the biggest club in the Championship I applaud you getting all excited like a child with a new toy, it's only natural, but I am sure like most things it will be short lived. Small club, big ambition ending on disappointment as always

Do all tractor drivers make no sense. get a grip you moron, we will see at the end of season where we are and then you. so what if youve got stockdale and bowyer i hope he gets recalled next week and the only reaason bowyer chose you is becuase his family was settled down the disability side of england. he actually preffered a move to us. so jump on ya tractor with ya probably 28 stone wife n do one {Ed045's Note - Husband*

God there are some bitter Leeds fans. grayson has struggled in the transfer market, one because he is a very average manager, and two because ken bates wont back him because he is far more interested in filling his own pockets.

If your not a leeds or ipswich fan why are you on here?

He didnt play as he fell out with brown - before that he got there player of the year 2 in row - stockdale didnt come because of the recall period - 24hrs is crazy if he was going to be our no1 - give your head a shake and stop pressing the panic button
