Leeds United target Matt Mills was in reserve action for Leicester City on Tuesday.
Reports are now suggesting that he wants to remain at the Walker Stadium and fight for his place despite a reported bust up with manager Nigel Pearson that has seen his miss the last two games.
Another player to shun Leeds.

Believable19 Unbelievable6

We don't want any player who doesn't want to be a part of us, why worry, let him get on with playing for Leicester reserves, he still gets paid his full wages....

Agree0 Disagree0

Its hardly classed as 'shunning' leeds is it, I mean he has only just signed for them, its not like the only reason he will stay is because only leeds came in for him.

take your bad vibe and do one mate, we dont need or want this pesimisium around our club, we had enough of that in the summer and january.

Things are looking on the up with the new manager coming in, so stop with this negativity!!!!

Leeds are giving a trial to Swedish “bad boy” Dulee Johnson.

The much-travelled midfielder, 27, is at Elland Road for talks and he is a free agent after a troubled spell in Holland with de Graafschap. He was born in Liberia, but settled in Sweden where he is now a citizen.

Believable11 Unbelievable2

Read about Dulee johnson on swedish pages, his swedish club AIK (one of the biggest in sweden) sacked him because several sponsors demanded that he was sacked for his behaviour. So good luck to Warnock.......

Agree0 Disagree0

I remember a french bad boy we signed once wonder what happened to him ?

warnock gets the best out of players with something to prove webber, mat mills hopefully

Believable11 Unbelievable2

And billy paynter. He scored twice today. Big things ahead with him {Ed013's Note - What, like a 10 foot wall!}

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe paynter just needs a run of games he could still do a job for us {Ed013's Note - Maybe, you never know in this game}

Agree0 Disagree0

Like the comment Ed,10 ft wall..lol.... maybe he does need a run of games but just not in our 1st team

Agree0 Disagree0

He had a run of games and couldn't even score but maybe he was low on confidence

Agree0 Disagree0

Paynter had a run of games - with Brighton - didn't do anything there either...!!

Ed - are you referring to a 10 foot wall as something he might be able to hit with a football, or something for him to paint..? {Ed013's Note - Both mate! I suppose we have to give him a chance if Mr Warnock can get something out of him other than a tin of Dulux!}}

Agree0 Disagree0

Looks like theyre putting barn door billy in the shop window to me, advertising his reserve performances on the OS & a rare appearance on the bench, another area colins experience is essential, dressing up the dross to make other clubs interested

what has happend to buck rogers, now that webber is in, townsend gone, will he get a game??

Believable13 Unbelievable0

Snodgrass is playing in an AM position this frees up the RW...webber is likely to provide competition for the lone striker position for becchio.....rogers will probably play on the RW when fit

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd also like to see what Warnock has in mind for Rogers, but also Sam and Nunez.

All three could be great players under the right manager.

Agree0 Disagree0

Rogers = left winger not sure if he can play on the right it all depends how good he his with his right foot as well as his left.

Agree0 Disagree0

Judgeing by his debut I think it will take a while for him to adjust to english football. He looked lost. Not a very good option this season... {Ed013's Note - He wasn't on long, give the lad a chance}

Agree0 Disagree0

He wasnt lost heard he a had a good game for the time he was on according to commentary anyways plus he got the 9 mins added time for the clash of heads so you could say he made a contribution to the team! we scored in the 99 min lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Danny webber in until end of season and mills and robinson are reported to be very close to joining aswell.

This would represent a very good week of business by Neil Warnock and Leeds United, exactly what I expected and hoped for when Warnock took charge very positive and would really strengthing our squad and first 11.

These are the kind of players you need at your club in this division.

MOT Super Leeds

What really gets me is: Why didnt SG go out and get mature guys with quality and experience to plug holes. Maybe NW is more attractive for guys knowing hes got a better chance at delivering the goods and heading into PL. I love SG but quality of loans didnt excite me

Agree0 Disagree0

Danny Webber signed until the end of the season - gives us options up front and out wide - good little option - hopefully Mills next, followed by Robinson and Abeid.

Believable6 Unbelievable3

I really hope we get Mills, I think he would be the most significant signing.

I see that juniors buying a matchday ticket
for Southampton get a free shirt yet junior season ticket holders get entered into a
draw! Why should a season ticketholder who goes every week and pays up front be
discriminated against

Believable15 Unbelievable6

Because Ken Bates ALREADY HAS the season ticket holders money in his pocket.......

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont be a prat. I am a season ticket holder. If it brings more in spectators- all well and good. This argument goes on at every club. The chairman is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. Its his decision. I knew what I was doing when I bought the ticket.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why are some supporters (like yourself), so pessimistic?!? isn't it enough that you have a season ticket and your lucky enough to go to at least all home games?!

i have to travel in order to get to ER and i also have a daughter of 5months so trips going to watch Leeds unfortuantley are very few and far between. I would be delighted to see 30,000+ attend the saints game whether it be because of a free shirt or not - there top so surely is a good thing we encourage as many fans to get there as possible!

why do some people look at the glass half empty all the time as oppposed to half full!? be happy with your season ticket mate and the fact you can get behind the lads every other week cuz some of us sadly cant for whatever reason!

Agree0 Disagree0

I am sorry about being a prat- am just after some fairness that's all. i don't happen to have a junior season ticket but I do feel for those that have and then wonder why people who go once a flood are treated better. As for getting 30000 plus, we were doing that a couple of seasons ago and the prices aren't that much different. The reason why people stopped going is the standard of football- pure and simple- and it isn't about being lucky to have a season ticket-it is about making a commitment.

Agree0 Disagree0

Is having 30000 at a game a good thing? in the past couple of seasons a big crowd has normally worked for the away team, not us!

Agree0 Disagree0

I am a season ticket holder - born and bred in Leeds but now workand live in Hull. I paid £633(and next season) for my ticket, plus £20 +£6 for petrol and car parking. I would love to see 30000+ in the ground (hope the team can cope) and I dont begrudge the odd inducement to get more tickets sold. It happens at other grounds so its not just a KB thing. Just get behind the team and be grateful you can afford the season ticket. I am.

Agree0 Disagree0

'and it isn't about being lucky to have a season ticket-it is about making a commitment'

What an awful thing to say! So basically all of us fans that don't make it to games or don't have a season ticket aren't making a commitment is that it? I probably only make it to ER twice a season because I live 100 miles away in Leicester and don't drive. I also live on my own, so having £60 spare on a regular basis just doesn't happen.
This doesn't mean that I'm any less committed than any other Leeds fans, just that my circumstances don't allow me to watch my beloved club as much as I'd like to.

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair a kid lucky enough to have a season ticket will more than likely have a shirt. I hope plenty of you grown ups turn up or it'll look on TV like Leeds fans are all dwarfs with sparkly new tops, and squeaky voices.

Agree0 Disagree0

I have only managed to get to Elland road once this season due to work, family & financial restraints/comittments, but don't begrudge the £37 ticket price, or the full price I paid for both home and away shirts, around £100 total just at the ground, without the fares and accomodation and time off work!

You NEED to count yourself LUCKY mate, that you can get there every week, it's NOT a commitment unless you live hundreds of miles away, have to pay for petrol, trains, planes or buses AND stop overnight in order to watch the team every week. If I lived that close I would consider it an OBLIGATION to have a season ticket, not a commitment!

Agree0 Disagree0

I bought tickets in the legends lounge for me and my son way before this offer came out so its a brucy bonus for my lad to get a shirt for nothing! hope to see elland roads roof blasted into the sky this saturday, make the place a fortress again!

Agree0 Disagree0

The shirt deal just looks like good business sense to me, I suspect that Leeds has a surplus of the child sizes of shirts and are planning to replace the kit (after more than the 8 games an England one lasts) which would make the stock virtually worthless. Instead they are using it to incentivise people into the ground and making some young fans happy. As previous poster said, junior fans with season tickets probably have the shirt... And if they don't would probably prefer the season ticket to the shirt anyway. It's the same principle as airlines selling tickets at different prices, or products getting discounted before they are replaced.
