Paul Green called up by the Oirish for the Euros. All contract talks, including with LUFC, will now be put on hold to end til the Republic are out.

Believable13 Unbelievable11

This explains him not signing - his agent knows its a shop window ( good or bad ) and more options for him if he performs well in euros for a Prem move etc - let him go Neil i say - if he's not passionate about coming to ER

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol if he preforms well?, the guy is a last resort for the republic the amount of game time he will get will be 0%. The reason he hasn't signed officially for anyone is because his contract with derby doesn't expire until the end of the month.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well he wont be signing till mid July as Ireland will win the Euros he wont be involved as he is not good enough to make the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

I am the director of the cooperate boxes at Leeds and my boss has told me that the reason why the ward deal is off is because he thought he would of sold clayton by now. He thought he would then have the funds. If Ross goes NW's replacement target will be sylvan ebanks-Blake! Pace and power all the NW attributed

Believable9 Unbelievable21

Utter bull mate the position u r talking about doesn't exist

Agree0 Disagree0

If you were indeed the director, i am sure you would at least be able to spell corporate.

Agree0 Disagree0

Director of the Corporate Boxes or the 'Cooperate'. Your obvious illiterate attempt displays obvious lack of intelligence.... you should be LEEDS FINANCIAL DIRECTOR.... Utter B/S comment mate

Agree0 Disagree0

Freudian slip maybe were getting took over by the co-op

Agree0 Disagree0

I am director of my business but i would never refer to my chairman as MY BOSS!! maybe we will have a co-op built into the south stand soon! handy to pop in at half time for a bag of carrots and some tampax for the wife when i get home!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Regardless ...good shout Ebanks-Blake, be a good signing that....lets big it up get it on NW's radar!

QPR are to discuss the future of goalkeeper Paddy Kenny on Monday.

Kenny has been strongly linked with a move to Leeds United, having played under Elland Road boss Neil Warnock at Rangers, Sheffield United and Bury.

So far there has been no formal approach from Leeds, although that could change if Kenny is made available next week.

Believable9 Unbelievable13

If we have no money why would we buy an average keeper, check our squad mate we need outfield players

Agree0 Disagree0

We already have aless than average keeper thats why we need Kenny!

Agree0 Disagree0

Think Kenny relationship and potential move has been on cards for some time. This would not be a surprise. All on hols so dont see move for few weeks. I'm personally 75% convinced he will come

Agree0 Disagree0

Kenny is no better than Lonners or QPR would not be getting rid. Think about it.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lonergan will do well next season he is a good keeper but only IF he has protection from a good strong defence

Agree0 Disagree0

Believable13 Unbelievable16

Could be ive heard 5 english footballers backed by arab money had taken over the players are about to refuse contract offers at there clubs 4 based in england 1 abraod all in there 30s

Agree0 Disagree0

Will believe it when i see it, however all us Leeds fans nowadays , survive on rumours only, as we never buy anybody decent and never will with Bates. Gk

Agree0 Disagree0

? Could not understand a thing. Ed do you mind editing the illiterate. To the original poster, I truly hope you r right

Agree0 Disagree0

I really want all this to be true but its leeds and we never get any luck. fingers crossed anyway MOT

sheplufc

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope it's true. It would explain why Bates wouldn't fund the Ward deal.

Agree0 Disagree0

Contract offered to free agent Nicky Shorey. However, highly doubtful we can match Leicesters offer. Will all depend on whether he moves for just the money or the football.

Believable11 Unbelievable10

Where have you got that from?, only offer is from Leicester

Agree0 Disagree0

Potential investor could be Sheik Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani (Google him). He's been hovering around in the background for a year or so.

Believable24 Unbelievable11

Isn't he if I'm not mistaken the guy with the money behind Cf Malaga ! I'm a white through n through my second team is Malaga so would be its at all true

Agree0 Disagree0

It's not the Malaga guy, he's a distant relative, the one mentioned above is heir apparent to Qatar

Agree0 Disagree0

We've got more chance of Sheik Rattle and Roll taking over.

Agree0 Disagree0

He owns 70% stake in PSG - I dont think you are allowed to own more than 1 club?

Agree0 Disagree0

You are abramovich owns cska moscow and chelsea but highly doubt this rumour as dont think anyone would want to workwith bates he shady as f*** Brian MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

You cannot own two clubs genius end of story uefa rules.

Agree0 Disagree0

Honestly how nieve are you lot saying you cant own two clubs? of course you can,i am sure he has a 100 wives and god knows how many kids!! he could put the club in any of there names!! this would however be a dream come true for all of us,we live in hope,all i can say is ken bates HAS to go!! at his age he should relax!!

Agree0 Disagree0

All this talk of a takeover must be rubbish, not one rumour has been justified by providing a reliable source. MLSE have distanced themselves on twitter, the Freddie Shepherd rumour is 4 years old and who are Pearson, Wilkinson and their mysterious Arabian backers? KB is onto a good thing at LUFC creaming off the profit year after year so why sell? Any potential investors with half a brain will not trust KB with their money either. Remember Abramovich had to pay KB off when he bought Chelsea, as Ken wanted to retain a seat on the board (ego wont let go) which is what will be the sticking point should any takeover bid happen at Leeds. I hope I'm wrong about all this.

Believable19 Unbelievable9

Unfortunately, i think you've hit the nail on the head there, but we can always dream

Agree0 Disagree0

Wilkinson doesn't need an Arabian backer as he is extremely wealthy in his own right

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally agree with original post! Well said, bates will hold on to our beloved club until he fills his pockets and leaves us with no assets we already don't own our stadium or training facilities, and by the end of this summer we will have none of our best players and just replaced with 2nd best players! The White Rose needs to be strong but without that grey haired gimp!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Original poster here, who are pearson & wilkinson then?

Agree0 Disagree0

If Snoddy and McCormack etc are not sold soon we will be buying nobody else new....
They are funding the new sighnings.

Believable20 Unbelievable11

Really Ken, thanks for being so honest with us fans.

Agree0 Disagree0

If that's the case, why wasnt they put on the transfer list in the first place? Time is of the essence! Mot

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant see many player coming in june/aug if we have no cash..

Agree0 Disagree0
