This maybe nothing,but was at game tonight and a range rover vogue pulled up and this gentleman who was suited and booted met him as he got out,I was hanging around near radebe suite within listening distance,and first thing he asked him was "well then have you some info for me on this blasted takeover",his reply was "that's dead in the water that",don't know who he was but got the feeling he was someone who knew what he was talkin about,this conversation happened as they were making there way into the radebe suite,just letting you know what I overheard

Believable8 Unbelievable90

It is nothing as it never happened , and just coz they were in a range rover, don't make them important. also the men who are trying to make it happen are back in dubai. it was probably one of the stewards talking about the takeway across the street

Agree1 Disagree0

This isn't a rumor tips is the ramblings of a moron, stop degenerating the integrity of this site.

Agree1 Disagree0

I always like to come on here after a game and see who has been either A, been sat next to some high ranking official who just decides to blurt out the entire takeover situation to a complete stranger probably without even been asked. B, sat near good old Eddie Gray who while doing commentary funds the time to shout aloud that the takeover is complete/dead in the water depending on how he woke up that morning or C, overheard a guy in a tie who comes from Mumbai say "de takeover isss complete" as he gets out his state of the art skoda octavia throwing bundles of cash in the air!! Check the dates there's always someone willing to say something on match day

Agree1 Disagree0

I think the guy that got out of the RR was John Fitz :-)

Fredh MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

It was nothing as it didnt happen and the men involved would not discuss the TO like that. You are one of the people KB refers to, grow up

Agree0 Disagree0

Just for a second i thought you may have some news !!! lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Why is it some people never believe what people are sayin,I am telling you what I heard,now I'm not saying he had anything to do with the takeover directly but he could have known a little bit more than we do.

Agree0 Disagree0

I mean really a range rover pulls up and the deals off, how many people drive a range rover. the deal will only be off or on once the club have made there statement, I appreciate this is a rumours site and that everybody is entitled to a opinion, But at least make them believable if your going to make them up.

Agree0 Disagree0

You would be a bit easier to believe if you didn't use the word "blasted". Who uses the word blasted other than the Duke of Edinburgh or Sylvester (the warner brothers cat). Jog On Son.

Agree0 Disagree0

The man in the Range Rover was Henry Philips. Not heard of him? You will do in a few days time.

Agree0 Disagree0

"This might be nothing", you start with.
Should read "This is a load of tosh I'm inventing".
Mate, go away, think about what you said, then come back again and own up.
You won't be harmed, in fact we'll all chip in for your therapy. Two or three years of intense therapy will help, don't be afraid, own up.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

"The man in the Range Rover was Henry Philips. Not heard of him? You will do in a few days time."

You mean the Henry Phillips who sang 'The End Of The World As We Know It?"

Maybe Bates will be going then....??

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok so who is this Philips guy

Agree0 Disagree0

"Ok so who is this (Henry) Philips guy"

He's the guy who invented the Philips cross-head screw and died back in the fifeties, so it certainly wasn't him last night.

Mind you we do have a hot head with a screw loose running our team at the moment so maybe........

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't worry OP if you come on here and state some complete rubbish but it is pro takeover people lap it up. Say something negative about it and you end up bein called names. I just wish something would get sorted out but really promising team with or without investment at the moment

Agree0 Disagree0

Henry phillips is an american buisnessman

warnock to get enough money to get a few loans which i personally feel would give us a great chance of play offs ( if there good)

Believable43 Unbelievable13

28 Aug 2012 22:04:11
Diouf to sign a permanent 1 year deal by end of window and in loan window we may sign Swindon winger Matt Ritchie and Apostos Vellios from Everton. Both will sign permanent deals in January after takeover!

Believable18 Unbelievable39

Diouf can sign for anyone at anytime. He is a free agent and the transfer window has no baring on the matter. Free agents can be signed anytime

Agree1 Disagree1

Why would swindon, a lower league club, loan us there player.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope hes better than barn door billy

Agree0 Disagree0

There is a free transfer deadline, but it's in november or something

Agree0 Disagree0

Takeover in January now? Guess its a better guess than Friday.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2012 20:53:14
Boyd and Taylor going to Ipswich for 1.5 mill for both.snip.look at everyone buying players and we the great Leeds united cannot cough up enough at the moment to keep diouf who is already here and wants to stay.we will punch above our weight this season due to warnocks class and tactical knowledge but in the end I'm not sure we have the amount of personel to keep going all season.
What happens if we don't go up again,warnock won't stay and then we can play games with more promise of new players next season.becoming a joke now.does anyone honestly think we will have new people at the helm? Shrewleeds

Believable32 Unbelievable14

We have the greediest C*nt on the planet at the helm

Agree0 Disagree0

To be honest can you really say Boyd or Taylor would improve our team? Peterborough were very poor against us and Boyd was average at best.
Hammill and Maynard on loan would make us the force we need to be. A great signing would have been henri Lansbury, shame hes gone to Forrest
As for new owners, who can tell - all we can do is sit tight and enjoy the football

Agree2 Disagree0

If thats true ipswich have had a right touch, and yeah thats pretty much it if we dont get new ownerss but always look on the bright side bates is 80!

Agree0 Disagree0

No takeover I don't think.

Agree0 Disagree0

Shame if true -both would I think enhance our squad. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

All Ipswich have done is add two more people onto the guest list of their relegation party.

TeejLUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

Paul taylor would in no way improve our team, we have somma, becchio, mccormack n even diouf who offer far more than taylor would so im happy we aint getting him plus we were never even after him, boyd looks good as he plays 4 peterboro who only have him as a decent player but if you put him in the leeds side, your see hes just an average player who is very much like snodgrass, greedy n predictable

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2012 20:50:20
Heard were in for Matt Ritchie of Swindon if the money comes in

JackTheWhite

Believable10 Unbelievable18

The money will not come in that is true

Agree0 Disagree1

Very good player, but the money wont come

Agree0 Disagree0

If the money was coming in why would we be buying crap like that!

Agree0 Disagree0

He use to play for Portsmouth, so there's a good chance.

Agree0 Disagree0

Norwhich and villa scouts at tonight's game lad stood next to me was talking to Eddie Gray as where near they broadcast there looking at sam byran

Believable11 Unbelievable41

That the same sam byram whos just signed a 4 year contract, muppet

Agree3 Disagree0

Can't see it happening! Just because he just scored people jump on the band wagon and say rubbish like this

Agree1 Disagree0

They can look all they want not getting another youth product unless its 1 more stab from ken bates

Agree1 Disagree0

You sad man, Get a life us true fans are fed up with all the negative made up rumors..The club will be moving in the right direction in the next couple of days.. SUPER LEEDS...

Agree1 Disagree0

Everybody has a price under KB

Agree0 Disagree0

His price must be around the 10 mil area as hes got a decent contract and very young . thing is these prem teams might just offer half that with us having no money bates will probably accept

Agree0 Disagree0

Blood is close to boiling point at elland road i'd leave this story alone .

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not going nowhere he has just signed a new 3 year deal

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2012 18:33:27
Ken Bates will sign the deal off on 01/09/2012 just to make sure no players are bought in to save himself money before he makes his millions in the deal, because he still in theory owns the club and transfer shuts on Fri, any players in cost him, why would he spend before leaving ?
What a tit you are KB

Believable46 Unbelievable28

At 80 yrs old. I can safely say, when your time comes, the leeds fans will be still singing loud and proud. PARTY!!
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree1

Spot on, my theory all along.
If i was to own a business and in process of selling up, why would i or anyone in right mind spend silly money of their own before selling ?
Anyone who answers "ME" your full of what the pig rolls in all day

Agree0 Disagree0

If they buy the club now then the money will be theirs twit

Agree1 Disagree0

Rubbish if he sells then how can he own the club still.

He is just holding out to get the best deal to see if the buyers cough up before transfer window closes

Agree0 Disagree0

This is complete nonsense. The budget for playing staff is completely open and above board and NW knew exactly what it was when agreeing to take over. The budget that Bates gives his managers is incredibly generous in that they have the entire gate receipts to spend. If we do not have a good enough or big enough squad then it is down to the manager and not Bates.

Agree0 Disagree0

Read the post properly, if bates own which he does !, why would he spend now before sale ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish post why would he hold the sale up just so the new owners cant spend money before window closes?

Agree1 Disagree0

I agree with last post but then again with poster, bates has always said he hates leeds but true why would he stall to stop buyers spending ?
Its all ****ed up lets just wait & see eh ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates COULD be holding out to see whoelse he can shift to make a bit more poke , remember window rubbishs fri !
Might wait to see if any offers come in at last minute as everyone does, then sign.
He doesn't have to fund for players if he doesn't want he own LEEDS dont forget.
I'm with the poster on this 1, why spend when you can sell and do 1 to monaco with a fat bank account.
Papa D

Agree0 Disagree0

Utter nonsense - the figure is for the business and will have been agreed as part of the due diligence - the money in the bank is not Ken Bates, it is Leeds United's within their accounts! Ken will purely take a salary throughout the year or a dividend at financial year end regardless of whether he owns the majority, not throughout the year. What do you think they have to do, ask KB to sign a cheque every time they want to buy the stationary? JH

Agree0 Disagree0

So Kb doesnt want to spend money on a team hes selling that sound about right.but that dont say a lot for the new owners who should have bought the team earlier and give the fans a bit of faith

Agree0 Disagree0

He could sell tommorow and still get the same money as he would after the transfer deadline as long as he doesn't buy anyone else . Selling after is only to annoy us fans.

Agree0 Disagree0

What? So you think Ken will sign after the window to save himself money on transfers?? That makes no sense. If he sells tomorrow then he doesn't own the club anymore and the new owners can spend their money on transfers, not kebs. Utter nonsense of a post.

Crmd

Agree0 Disagree0

Sheer fantasy

Agree0 Disagree0

I am utterly amazed as to how some muppet can write a rumour post and split the fans ffs !
what is going on ? i thought we were united not seperated to tear strips off each other, give it a rest eh lads ?
imo nobody and i mean nobody knows nothing bar parties involved

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't know what school of finance you studied at. If Bates sells today, any subsequent transfer will be a liability of the new owners #basic

Agree0 Disagree0

This would be like selling a car, the new owner kevving it up and asking you to pay. Obviously that's not how it works.

Agree0 Disagree0

It makes no difference. The new potential owners will be buying bates's shares. If they sell the whole team or buy 50 more players all transactions will done as part of the agreed budget and therefore have no effect on the investment. What is clear however is that mr Bates will not put additional funds forward from his own pocket. He hasn't done it before and it will be stupid to do it now.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think you are wrong I think it will happen on 2/09/12. Honestly you have no idea like everyone else

Agree0 Disagree0

Original poster here, any chance any of yous read a paper this morning rhymes with fun ?
Ha muppets read it and weep !
72 hours from now makes which date ?
I rest my case
GOODBYE

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock confirmed he is not expecting to make any further permanent signings before Friday's deadline following a busy summer of transfer activity at Elland Road.

He added: "We won't be buying anybody. I think the most you can expect is a loan player if we can, getting into September." He should know {Ed013's Note - Do you think there is a tongue in cheek comment there? "we won't be buying anybody" what about a freebie or 2? just a thought}

Believable20 Unbelievable13

I think you need to stop being so satisfied with white Ed. {Ed013's Note - I agree he has started poor}

Agree0 Disagree0

Strong rumours that QPR winger Angelo Balanta will be anounced as a season loan signing tonight and will go straight into the starting eleven for tonights game.

Believable1 Unbelievable40

If it's a 'strong' rumour, how come nobody else anywhere in the media seems to have heard it?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yet more rubbish although would be nice

Agree0 Disagree0

Strong rumours from where ? this is absolutly non sense

Agree0 Disagree0

Isnt he signing for Swindon on loan?

Agree0 Disagree0

Well he wasn't in the team!

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2012 14:39:57
Nw is on the verge of signing his ex captain joey Barton on a free transfer the only stumbling block is that he's suspended for 12 games but he also says there's bigger teams in for him

I personally dislike the man but he is a good player

Believable18 Unbelievable63

Diouf and barton? Scary midfield. Will they have to be tagged during or after each game?

Agree0 Disagree0

I though his "heart was in Marseille"?

Agree0 Disagree0

The only stumbling block is that he is suspended. What about his wages, his signing on fee and the fact he slagged off Warnock. What rubbish

Agree1 Disagree0

Yh 6/1 on second favourites behind west spam lets live and hope so imagine austin n barton in centre of midfield. Tasty!
Super leeds fan

Agree0 Disagree0

He not a good player , he is a liabilty. he poptentailly could have got QPR relegated. plus marsielle have dropped there interets in him as he is a knob. why would we sign somebody who cant even play in the sqaud until November, we need squad players now, this is an absolute crap rumour

Agree0 Disagree0

What a loud of cr=p. It's all over the news, he's goin to french club.
mot4life {Ed013's Note -Talks broken down}

Agree0 Disagree0

He is on nearly 80k a week. We got no chance of getting him even with investment.

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of gargle barton flagged warnock off big time. when warnock left qpr.
BACK TO SCHOOL NEXT WEDNESDAY

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont think barton would come to leeds and perhaps im wrong but i thought he could play in any other division than the premiership the ban is only for premiership

Agree0 Disagree0

Other stumbling block is that he's a #unt !!

Agree0 Disagree0

Ca`nt see that happening he slagged NW off when he left QPR, What can he offer us ? just a thug no skill and all the hassle that comes with him , thanks but no thanks

Agree0 Disagree0

Wouldn't want him anywhere near the club. I agree he is a liability and personally think he should have been banned from pro football long ago. As a previous poster stated, he is a %unt.

Agree0 Disagree0

He's not off to France he's also said he doesn't want to sit in reserves getting paid if he can play in the championship without the ban then sounds even better sign him up.

Nw also called diouf a sewer rat and look who's playing now get your facts right before you start giving out abuse. This is a rumour site after all and I'm only posting what I've heard

Agree0 Disagree0

Are you gonna pay his wages. ROBBO MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

No thanks, more trouble than he's worth -it's all about Joey Barton, whatever the club he's at, and he appears to care not a jot about the reputation of the club concerned (and anyway, haven't we already let our standards fall low enough with the signing of Diouf?). Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

Diouf?barton?no takeover.........read between the lines, if that's too difficult let me help......DESPERATION (and no money for more transfers)!

Agree0 Disagree0

I've heard this might be happening

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2012 19:02:52
No Chance , barton would be all over twitter , he cant keep his mouth shut

Agree0 Disagree0

Utter rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Aug 2012 11:51:37
diouf has agreed terms and will be announced tonight before the game!
whos at elland road tonight? lets get behind the team, and neil warnock!

Believable29 Unbelievable19

I really hope this is a rare bit of fact on here!

Agree0 Disagree0

I'll be there.

JTMS

Agree0 Disagree0

I really hope so.... he showed sum premiership class against peterborugh

Agree0 Disagree0

Fact on here lol ! its a rumors site, although I do love reading it........

Agree0 Disagree0

Taking my little cousin to his first game tonight. Hope this is true because we are weak on the flanks already without effectively losing a player. Hoping to see young poleon start and score tonight, not a game to be risking becchio and mccormack

Agree0 Disagree0

More rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

Still no signature. 11.13am 29th August.
So you see original poster, you were (once again?) talking bo***x.

Believable19 Unbelievable14

28 Aug 2012 02:47:39
I received a text in the early hours saying there's going to be a statement issued today from Leeds utd regarding the current takeover situation. Have no idea though as to what the information is. I'll keep you informed.

Believable19 Unbelievable74

Probably Ken telling us hes managed to sell all the pens and can now afford to pay Diouf for a few months!

Agree0 Disagree0

Rased 2 million just in bics pens do you think this is y he made up the infestment rumouse he he he

Agree0 Disagree0

Cheers mate, I look forward to your update.

ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Agree0 Disagree0

Give it a rest with takeover talk

Agree0 Disagree0

I received a text this morning saying your telling porkies.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi, thanks Neil, I hope your sleep was not interupted too much.
No need to keep us informed, the club will do that with the statement, you concentrate on the Oxford game.

Agree0 Disagree0

LUST have sent the a note asking for an update and showing their concerns regarding the potential takeover

Agree0 Disagree0

Club statement will be as follows, the takeover is off. but thank you one and all for the lovely gifts, i love pens

Agree0 Disagree0

Put some credibility to this please mate.... At least identify why your soooo special that some person texts you at some early hour to tell you this sh**. Or did you just have some weird fantasy island dream like the rest of us

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldn't worry about it mate. Probably Paddy Kenny having a laugh !

Agree1 Disagree0

"LUST have sent the a note asking for an update and showing their concerns regarding the potential takeover"

Oh well, that's BOUND to get a reply from BAtes then....

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Agree0 Disagree0

Sticking their noses in again you mean?! As if the badgering is a welcome thing to potential investors.

Agree0 Disagree0

Who sent you this text and why

Agree0 Disagree0

To the guy who said its probably just paddy kenny having a laugh....u are a legend! U properly made me chuckle and made my day thanks :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol some ppl are so pathetic to think he would get a message in the early hours about what is happening at the club lol, i find it quite funny but when i really think about it i get upset that there are so many ppl who actually think they are in the know lol id advise the original poster to get 2 school n if older then get a job n also get a life :) " il keep you informed " lol what u mean is when it gets announced your post on here saying " u heard it here first " lool person

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah, the statement will read:

"No change"

Agree0 Disagree0

"il keep you informed " lol what u mean is when it gets announced your post on here saying " u heard it here first"

You've stolen that idea from LUST haven't you?

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't understand the bashing of LUST.

They're the only group who have made any attempt to keep the fans informed of what is going on with our club. We wouldn't have had a single statement from LUFC if it wasn't for the pressure put on them by LUST. They are in contact with the buyer so they're not making stuff up.

If Bates has got nothing to be afraid of, then why the insistence on utter secrecy and silence? He's the man refusing to sell the club. Direct your anger at him, not a group doing everything they can for the good of the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

"Don't understand the bashing of LUST.

They're the only group who have made any attempt to keep the fans informed of what is going on with our club."

They are also the only group who have riled Ken Bates enough for him to deliberately prolong any takeover bid too....

They are also the only group who have caused bad feeling among Leeds United (REAL) supportes too.....

They are also the only group who could singlehandedly be responsible for any investors actually doing one too......

Hmmm, seems a lot to be bashing them for then?

Agree0 Disagree0

I believe the rumour may be the same one I've heard.......Its not happening its a fiment of Bates's imagination to keep supporters/club in no mans land

Agree0 Disagree0

And guess what no anouncement today , grow up mate.

Also if you listen to every thing LUST say you will go crazy, they were talking about Administration if the takeover doesnot go through , which is absolulty b*******, bates has even said him self we are a club in profit and working within our own means, he earns X pays Y for rent and bills and the manger gets Z what ever is left for players and wages, just coz cash flow is low doesnt mean debt. So LUST should maybe have a better understanding of finaces before they start throwing stupid comments about Admin out there , it effect the players.

Agree0 Disagree0

I suspect that LUST have a better grasp of the finances of the club than you as they have inspected the books. You on the other hand are just talking out of your backside

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha - LUST have access to the books? Who is talking out of their backside now? LUST guess and surmise what is going on the same as anyone else. They have access to nothing I think you will find!

Agree0 Disagree0

LUST may not have access to the books but you r pathetic if you think they know just as little as all the suporters lol. give your head a shake. i go on there n i find out way more on there than i do on this site, i come on here 4 a laugh as amazing how many ppl think they know a top secret lol

Agree0 Disagree0
