Leeds should hear a decision from El Hadj Diouf on Tuesday regarding signing a contract. There's also reported interest from abroad.
MOT!

Believable30 Unbelievable9

Afew weeks ago I heard Villarreal were after him.

Agree0 Disagree0

I wonder if Robbie Rogers has a recall clause in that loan to Steveo??

If we can't keep Diouf then we may need him back!

Nigel Reo-Coker is close to signing a year contract,with option for a further year to add numbers and bolster the quality of the squad. The 28-year old is currently out of contract since his deal expired with Bolton at the end of the summer.

Believable22 Unbelievable76

Absolute rubbish. He was on a website the other day saying he wants to stay in the Premiership, plus no way we could afford his wages!

Agree0 Disagree0

No he isn't

Agree0 Disagree0

Wld not want him , too much up his own arse

Agree0 Disagree0

Makes sense with green being out for a few months,and he's better than both green and norris would be a quality signing MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Self imposed retired !

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah rite mate and santa`s real

Agree0 Disagree0

I thouht i had read somewhere that he wouldn't re-sign for bolton because he wanted to stay in the prem.could we afford him wage wise and where did you get this info?

Agree0 Disagree0

We cannot afford his wages or signing on fee, don't you read what Warnock says!

Agree0 Disagree0

What do you mean santa not real {Ed013's Note - Don't tell my kids, Oh and the Wife as she soon believes in Santa when there are presents to be had!}

Being reported NW likely to rest certain players for the Oxford game so he can take a look at others who haven't featured too much. Right move in my opinion. I expect Brown Pugh Gray Poleon and Kisnorbo to start.

Believable52 Unbelievable3

He already said last week that as he has such a small squad he would have to rest players at Oxford

Agree0 Disagree1

Its official. Direct from the club and warnock! The funds are empty! No money no transfers!
My contact states buyers are waiting for window to close so can justify bates price not being value due to depleted squad.
Its going to be a hard 4months till next window.

Believable55 Unbelievable21

Yes Warnock said after the Blackpool game that nobody else was coming in due to lack of funds

Agree0 Disagree0

Another contact ! where do they all come from lmfao

Agree0 Disagree0

Are you the same person the quoted ''i have it from my source at ER that the deal will be done by every Friday since June'' ?

What i cant get my head around is both Warnock and Bates said the squad is to large with dead wood..! now its to thin with some dead wood still here..!

Woody LUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

Ever heard of loans ,as warnock has been saying for the past 2 weeks and next window is 3 months, not going to be hard so stop with the stirring

Agree0 Disagree0

No money for loans either, don't you read what the manager says?

Agree0 Disagree0

The bit about no funds is common knowledge, as for the rest of my 'contact' says you don't know anything more than anyone else!

Agree0 Disagree0

No need to panic. We will augment our solid core with a couple of decent loans, to take us through to Christmas, when we will have funds to spend (subject to t/o of course). Don't forget that it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that one of the loanees could be Beckford (or another similarly decent forward), with the consortium happy to pay a good chunk of his wages, having missed completion in time for this window. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

If you read between the lines, Warnock has regularly said 'it could go on til Christmas', or words to that effect !

I think he knows and is trying to tell us. He trusts himself til then and so should we ! MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates has a choice sell now and get a decent price , hope for promotion this season and sell for much more but if we dont go up he will have no choice but to sell for way less as he will have no money to support the club from free fall .he could get lucky but with the size of the squad we have theres next to no chance so he has to sell before xmas or risk losing a third of the price offered at moment

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes i read what the manager says, he says he will be looking at the loan market, you muppet

Agree0 Disagree0

To Kermit above 'I think the most you can expect is a loan player. said Colin

Agree0 Disagree0

I can see the takeover been completed a day before the window closes
Bates is a sick twisted old man who takes pleasure in delaying the takeover

Believable43 Unbelievable40

Good sensible post,we should all know how mr.bates operates by now.the pleasure he must be getting knowing how much he is hurting us and the club.what an awful,greedy,twisted man he is!!

Agree0 Disagree1

More likely to sign AFTER the deadline has passed.
Gates will need to fall before his hand is forced as the club cant survive on gates of less than 22000.
It wont go into administration because he'll jump first and sign the club over so he gets the max return in the circumstances. He's pushing his luck at present because hes hiding something but once the window closes he cant sell any players until January and he wont want to be paying a shortfall in gate receipts as I see it.
Hes relying on the goodwill of the supporters to keep going but once they stop he will be dead man walking. Its a pity because the fans are too loyal to do it but it might be all we need to get him out. Just 1 or 2 matches where fans boycott the games might see him depart? Anyone else think the same?

Agree0 Disagree0

The 88 days had finished sat 25 the take over will be completed sometime today latest tomorrow

Agree0 Disagree1

I am more and more convinced that 'The Takeover' is dead in the water. I posted on here the other day that if both sides were 100% commited to doing a deal it would have been signed, sealed & delivered ages ago !

Agree0 Disagree0

What takeover? If anybody is to blame about raising expectations, it's Lust.

Agree0 Disagree1

Bates is doing this on purpose as one last dig at us just to try n ruin our promotion chances

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think that's what's going on. I think he wants to get his money as quickly as possible. How do we even know that it's being delayed? Maybe it's simply the correct timescale, which in this case is longer than usual, due to possible unusual circumstances (eg. club ownership etc.) We don't know what's happening right now.

Besides, what difference does it make to us anyway? Turn up to matches and support the team. Unless we are interested in buying the club or investing in it, what difference does any of this make to our everyday lives?

Agree1 Disagree0

People need to stop deluding themselfs in thinking Bates cares about the fans. He's a sad old man who knowone likes in football. Didn't take long before he cocked things up for us.
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree1

Silly boy, ain't going to be any takeover and there never was going to be a takeover. papa smurff had to put something out to sell tickets, he'll keep this going for as long as he can and then blame the people for the buyers walking away

Agree0 Disagree1

I can't see the takeover happening at all.

Agree0 Disagree0

There is no takeover !!
There is no takeover !!
There is no takeover !!

Agree0 Disagree1

So all these people that have been discussing takeover for the past 3 months are all actors, there really are some thick people out there.stop with the thinking you know whats happening because you dont.everything good comes to those who wait

Agree0 Disagree0

You'll all be eating your words IF takeover does happen won't you ?
You know nothing same as rest of us.......SO please be quiet, let things run their own course.
If it happens, happy days, if not, what have we lost ?
NOTHING

Agree0 Disagree0

I think there is a takeover.
If there wasn't it would of come out wouldn't it ?

Agree0 Disagree0

To all you know how doubters, prove to us there is not a takeover, go on were waiting.
you cant thats why so button it lets wait and see

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates doesn't have much choice but to sell the club or we will be bankrupt and he will get nothing and he is not that stupid

Agree0 Disagree1

Why do people keep saying there isn't a takeover or wasn't ever going to be one. Warnock himself has mentioned the word takeover lots of times even this week saying nothing will be done until the takeover is complete

Crmd

Agree0 Disagree0

I was worried as well about it being investment not t/o as well but like the previous poster said NW keeps mentioning takeover as well. he will do it on Saturday,the day after the window closes announced via his ramblings in the programme. remember this is the man who sacked grayson after the transfer window closed in Jan meaning NW could not bring in any players in apart from loans. he is a nasty vindctive old man

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont think it matters if takeover is done before or after transfer window shuts ,i think we have a squad that can keep us around the playoffs until the next transfer window .

Hi ed... Just to let all other Leeds fans know LUFC trust have recently updated their statement.. Well worth a read!

Www.lufctrust.org

Believable18 Unbelievable60

Lust are just a bunch of conspiracy freaks who rely on rumour and counter rumour, they don't represent me.

Agree0 Disagree0

At least lust are keeping the fans updated with what is really going on wish the club would do the same to tell us whats happening is there a takeover or not we need to know

Agree0 Disagree0

Would LUST ever f**k off. I'm sure their comments will speed things up haha. Sick of their spoilt child I want to be in the know don't leave me out of the party nonsense

The interests of leeds united are more important than the interests of ken bates? Whilst I agree that we are important as a club and us fans love Leeds. Ken OWNS Leeds. It is his interests and he isn't going to go away until he gets what he wants. Lust saying he isn't important will piss him off and galvanise his waiting around approach

In short F**k off LUST - w**k*rs

Crmd

Agree0 Disagree0

Ignore LUST! Don't believe the hype!

Agree0 Disagree0

Well do 1 Bates lover.Trevo

Agree0 Disagree0

Good reply all they are doing is pushing Leeds to make a further statement they know nothing about the deal and they only represent say 10% of Leeds fans if that. They go on about there Vision policy, know owner or buyer will ever buy into it, spending all that money to have Buster Blood Vessel tell you how to run your club! Waste of web pages O.W

Agree0 Disagree0

Mate do not represent 10% of LUFC fans they have 2000 members so if my math is correct that would mean we have 2o,000 fans.they don't even represent 1% of are fan base. anyway LUST out!!

Agree0 Disagree0

LUST actually have 7,500 members, so going on the recent gate against Wolves that is almost 1/3rd of the supporters. Or a good 30% at least.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wrong actually lust have 7500+ members so check your facts before you post rubbish, never mind lust out more like bates out he is the problem not them mot4ever?

Agree0 Disagree0

Your maths are sh*te pal LUST have 7500 members so in fact they represent at least 30% of supporters. Oh and 2000 also works out at 20% of 20000 so when you get back to school you should ask your maths teacher for some extra lessons ok.

Agree0 Disagree0

Above poster i think you should be the one going back to school cos 2000 is 10% of 20000!

Agree0 Disagree0

I think you all should go back to school, how can you actually work it out lol leeds have fans all around the world and thousands that dont goto games because of ticket prices haha.

Agree0 Disagree0

So how can you prove LUST actually have 7,500 members and how can you prove they are ALL dedicated Leeds United Supporters?

If I could join up as easily as it appears, I could easily join up several times.....?

And I might not be a Leeds supporter in the first place?

All speculation I know, but whilst the LUST members are totally outnumbered by the NON LUST members, they can hardly claim to speak on behalf of us all?

All they seem to have done, to me, is to divide US all? That is not condusive to anything with a name 'United' in the title?

Agree0 Disagree0

Obviously all you adding the maths up support LUST, but there must be at least 100,000 Leeds fans, forget how many go to the games, so if you have a calculator that is 7.5% not even 10%. if there are 200,000 then only 3.5%, they are nobodies, anyone buying the club will have nothing to do with them, the site is carp what they say is carp. give it 2 years and it will be gone. have you noticed since it was free how many extra fans joined! LUST FOR PLUMS!!! O.W

Agree0 Disagree0

It's a rumours site not a Maths test

Agree0 Disagree0

You must be deluded if you think lust have divided the fans think you will find mr bates did that along time ago the sooner he goes the better

Agree0 Disagree0
