People keep goin on about the players we've lost look at it, johnson poor kilkenny poor kasper poor, simon prob has players already at the club that are as good if not better, how do we know how good these kids are we don't see them everyday in training, maybe need to replace kasper.

Believable4 Unbelievable8

Kasper poor? Yes, we did leak silly goals but he was hardly to blame, he had his bad games everyone does we won't get a better young keeper than kasper.

Agree0 Disagree0

None of those player were poor, they had poor games on occasion but that's as far as you could say they were poor, get a grip man

Agree0 Disagree0

Kasper was the best keeper cardiff had for years and we had a poor defence.

Agree0 Disagree0

All of those players would be starters in most Championship clubs, so they are hardly poor, no matter how you try to put it. And to the dedicated Kilkenny haters, you should know that our point average was quite a bit higher with him, than in the matches he didn't play. It's just about badly handled contract renewals, and it keeps biting us in the arse year after year. I'm a fan of Bates and SG, but sort those contracts the * out

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree johnson and kilkenny were poor players league one at best however kasper i wouldnt say is a poor player but he did perform worse towards the end of the season and there are better keepers than him available

Agree0 Disagree0

Kilkenny and Johnson poor players? Get a grip, i'm sensing a touch of bitterness?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 21:26:21
Leeds will swoop for Adebayo Akinfenwa in the next 24 hours.

Believable4 Unbelievable14

Just signed for Northampton mate - If only we'd been quicker off the mark

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 20:59:40
To the guy who mentioned Oli Johnson earlier, great call, I used to play with Oli for our local pub team and he got signed by Stockport before being signed by Norwich.
If this lad gets a chance, I mean a chance like Billy Paynter has been given, we would see he is just as good as Beckford, not just saying it he really is.
I know it's doubtful but we would get him for next to nothing and he would make Billy Painter look like Thomas Brolin
In Grayson we trust, 100%
ON ON ON

Believable7 Unbelievable6

How did you manage to spell Paynter correctly then spell it wrong in the next sentence?

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a chance, i've played against oli a few times. he's a sound lad, but he is nowhere near premiership standard - which is the level of player we need to be attracting to get us back up there.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just saying that if he got the pitch minutes that PaYnters had, he would shine : ) you probably played against me too them? Even I'd shine if I got the chances Billy has had Ha

Agree0 Disagree0

Strong rumour from a work mate in Melbourne Oz apparently the guy that owns the tv sports channel 9, is seriously looking to invest in Leeds Utd, maybe even buying us outright, from what was said this has been doing the rounds down under for a few months...you heard anything ed {Ed015's Note - not heard anything}

Believable7 Unbelievable8

The guy who owns channel 9 over here is australia is a very wealthy man also which should be good for leeds and will put alot of money into the club

Agree0 Disagree0

James Packer? certainly isn't any rumors down here about him Buying into Leeds United.

Agree0 Disagree0

No news down under about leeds takeover.

NQ white

Agree0 Disagree0

If it is who I think it is, was strongly linked with us in 2010 as well.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm from australia & haven't heard this one, although doesn't mean its not true. There was talk of frank lowie buying leeds last year, but this didn't happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

This rumour surfaced last season and uncle Ken even commented. The guy in question is real and very wealthy and has carried out a financial due dilligence check (or whatever they officially call it). However checking and buying are 2 very different things.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 20:57:11
SG looking at doing a swap deal with the blunts Darius Henderson for Billy Paynter. Watch this space.

Believable7 Unbelievable13

Im a leeds fan... and im gettin annoyed that we keeep bringing in s**t players on free's the way it looks atm we are gna be fighting relegation... and no one wants to stay at leeeds coz we are tight b**tards... spend some f***ing moneyy look at liester spending loads

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 20:41:46
ED, there are so many rumours about different players coming into Elland Road on the site. What transfers do you think are most likely? {Ed015's Note - my advice it to keep looking that the free agents, as for transfers that actually cost money... no idea crnt see Bates spending}

Believable5 Unbelievable3

I agree smithies is class we need to rebuild starting at the back that would be a good start

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 20:41:32
This has got to be the most frustrating summers I have known being a Leeds fan. so much speculation but naff all happening but I must admit Im not the most patient of people I do hope we can bring in Smithies tho, the lad is class as us Leeds fans know only too well I also think gabbidon and reo-coker would be very good signings if we could get them. Anyway MOT

I live In Rothwell and bumped into alan smiths mum on the highstreet outside
Hare an Hounds who when i asked if he was going to sign replied with " for the thousand time yes..medical tomorrow at bupa hospital in methley'

Fingers crossed

-------------------------------------------------------

No offence but im sick of hearing about rumours about Alan Smith. If he's come why doesn't he just say it himself.

Believable12 Unbelievable7

I agree, but honestly I was a great fan of AS but LUFC need to build a team for the PL.

Agree0 Disagree0

Precisely, Smith hasn't said anything. If he had intentions on returning, him and his team would cushion the blow by doing minor interviews/comments etc. So they could see Leeds fans reactions and test the waters. So far only Leeds have hinted at it and thats simply to draw in interest from fans-Money (memberships/ST) or a smokescreen. I dont believe this for a minute. And to be honest Im sick to the back teeth of Alan Smith rumours Lets be practical and start discussing true targets for next season not some PR stunt.

Agree0 Disagree0

Exactly, look to the future not the past We've gotten out of this sh*tehole without him, and we'll get to the promised land once again without him. If he thinks he can come 'home' like some hero now he's ready for the scrap heap hes got another thing coming. The lads that put the graft in deserve all the credit Lets build a young team for our future Their are already some great players at Lufc to build around, why replace them with players that'll take us backwards.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 19:32:01
Apparently we are looking at Joe Lewis from Peterborough to replace Kasper, this has come from someone that works within ER

Believable6 Unbelievable13

The Sun doesn't say anything about an accepted bid

Agree0 Disagree0

How many keepers is that now hahahahaha are we going for a world record in links to goal keepers lol..... M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 19:21:15
Apparently we've accepted a bid for Gradel from Norwich
Source: The Sun

Believable5 Unbelievable22

Bullsh*t once again, buy sun everyday and its said west ham have joined the 2 million race for gradel.

Agree0 Disagree0

Going to west ham friday for 2.5 mil 100 per cent, bowyer coming back

Agree0 Disagree0

Just checked it now and it doesnt say that anywhere

Agree0 Disagree0

No chance Source the Sun, lol say's it all...

Agree0 Disagree0

Fingers crossed

Believable6 Unbelievable10

1. How did you know it was Alan Smith's mum?

2. Would she really answer "Yes, for the thousandth time", I doubt many people know it's Alan Smith's mum. If it is. Just Saying.

Agree0 Disagree0

Smithies mam doesnt live in rothwell only his dad

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought they both did or maybe I'm missing something? whatever...I'm sure the truth will be out sooner or later.

Agree0 Disagree0

Smithys Mum does look very much like him though, and no i don't mean that as a sarcastic dig to looking like a man or anything lol that said I'm not sure most of us would spot her in a crowd in honesty

Agree0 Disagree0

I work in rothwell on the high street and when alan was a fan favourite at leeds she did alot for the local community through alan. For those who really know anything about Alan Smith they will know his mum deals with the majority of his affairs financially so im sure she would know.

Agree0 Disagree0

I remember when he left Lilleshall because he missed her ....errrm home ....... I'd have wanted to go back to her too she was a babe ;-)

Agree0 Disagree0

Smithies - Thats a totally different player.
lol have you been assuming people have been talking about Smith when theyve been discussing another player lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Babe???
Ive seen his mam and no one would think they look a like, not enough to notice in the street anyway.
Maybe at 30/31 he shouldnt rely on his mummy so much, and even if he didnt shes family Im sure she'd still know if he was moving clubs? Dont see why knowing she deals with his money would support her knowing hes going to Leeds?? Any mother would know such things. Still think this rumours crap.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would Smith care about his mum being a babe ..... odd.

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont they do medicals at thorp arch anyway i?

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 18:51:14
ed i want to know more about you eg how do you get to be an ed on here.do you have a job? how long you have been a leeds fan and anything else if you want to tell us. thanx {Ed015's Note - wel... they was looking for Ed's so i got in touch lol, been a leeds fan for 20years 2months and 10 days..... my age ;) not much else to tell really.... }

Believable5 Unbelievable2

Omg ed I thought you were older ;) I feel very old I'm 28 and have supported Leeds all my life, despite what people say about the smith worshipping I was a Gary Kelly/Lee Bowyer fan in the early days lol {Ed015's Note - always been a fan of Kelly, and harte, was gutted to see harte go to reading }

Agree0 Disagree0

Ye godz I got programmes older than the pair of you lol

Hope your Dad's as proud of you as I am of my lad, for you finding the true faith ;-)

MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Doesnt he mean thats how long he has supported Leeds not his actual age?

Harte was one of my fav's to ED But certainly didnt worship him, no one player should be worshipped its about the team.

Agree0 Disagree0

Unless your Lucas Radebe.. He WAS a man to be worshipped.. Leeds through and through

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 18:41:13
cardiff city have put a £3 million bid for snodgrass after successful talks earlier today {Ed015's Note - We turned down more from Norwich... }

Believable1 Unbelievable18

28 Jun 2011 18:36:10
Ed: rumours of Mark viduka returning on a player/coach capacity, is there any truth in this? MoT {Ed015's Note - most past players have been linked in a player/coach role. i wouldnt think anything into it}

Believable6 Unbelievable14

28 Jun 2011 17:50:03
i'm the guy that spells summarize with a z

I told you West ham bid for Max Gradel, it's now in the Guardian

www.guardian-series.co.uk/sport/westham/westhamnews/9110147.West_Ham_make_bid_for_Leeds_winger/

Snodgrass will be the next to leave probably Aston Villa but Newcastle are also interested.

Our 5 best players could be gone before July. What is going on with our club. Bates showing his true colours?

Believable6 Unbelievable16

And thats the way to spell anything ending in "ize", well done

Agree0 Disagree0

Snodgrass won't go, nobodys going to pay 8mil for him

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 17:11:26
Gradel to go to the highest bidder as he only has 1 year on his contract. Then another keeper in and two midfielders to come in. Bowyer, no chance, as we cant afford him. So we will have to look at the loan market again and Bates can pocket all of the cash again for his pension and pay off the debt Remember we still have debt

Believable4 Unbelievable7

Gradel will sign a new contract, he loves it at Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Get your facts right we dont have debt If you were a Leeds fan you would know we are one of the few clubs turning a profit. Albeit a very small one

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 17:07:16
grayson should bring oli johnson to the club, norwich want rid, fair enough maybe not good enough for first team but at least he can live in wakefield again rather than dreadful norwich

Believable4 Unbelievable8

Dreadful norwich? i lived there for 10years its a great little city {Ed015's Note - i have family there. its not a bad place}

Agree0 Disagree0

Why bring him to the club and use wages if he isnt good enough, just so he can live in Wakefield instead of Norwich....I dont care whats better for him He is prob on £3k a week Unlike me I want whats best for this club lol

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 16:40:51
Not a rumour, but I will be amazed if we have both Snoddy and Gradel at the end of the transfer window.

Believable13 Unbelievable11

Prepare to be amazed then cos they will both still be at ER

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 15:34:33
Heard a rumour that Bowyer is at ER at the moment discusing terms, have you heard anything about this ed {Ed015's Note - not heard a thing... its all quiet}

Believable6 Unbelievable10

28 Jun 2011 15:01:54
Ed, have you heard any likely rumours about transfers in or out of Leeds?

I really hope the talk about Gradel and Snodgrass is just rumours. We really need a good no. 1 as well. {Ed015's Note - none so far this week that are realistic}

Believable1 Unbelievable0

28 Jun 2011 17:05:19
Kirkland to sign at leeds on a free and apparantly Max Gradels eyeing up a 3 year deal at leeds as he stated before

Believable17 Unbelievable10

I would like to hope Gradel stays for another 3 years, but Kirkland? No thanks.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 16:16:51
Skybet have suspended the betting on Shay Given going to Villa anither one escapes the net

Believable8 Unbelievable6

Dont kid yourself into thinking we could have got Given

Agree0 Disagree0

He was never even a target. too expensive and wouldn't consider dropping down anyway.

Agree0 Disagree0

Given would have never signed for us in this league

Agree0 Disagree0

That is assuming our net was in that pond, which I'm fairly certain it wasn't. Ours was probably dipped in a nearby puddle...

Agree0 Disagree0

Escapes the net? he was never coming to the championship. wake up

Grayson has most likely already got a keeper lined up. keeping his cards close to his chest

have faith

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 15:28:11
Stoke, West Ham, Fulham and Swansea are all fighting it out for Max Gradel. Only Swansea have put across a bid so far (Undisclosed) which was rejected.

Source: Sky Sports News

Believable8 Unbelievable10

Can't understand why anyone is circulating this crap. Max was player of the year last season, with 18 goals, this after the notorious 'stamping' allegation of the previous season which Grayson totally ignored.

Why would we sell Gradel to our major competition?

If this actually does happen, I will be calling the Samaritans...... {Ed015's Note -

Agree0 Disagree0

You're a w**ker, nowt on Skysports, why bother?

Agree0 Disagree0

Nothing on sky about this, tv and online. somebodys talking for the but again

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 15:11:17
Lee Bowyer is apparently looking around ER today. Expect an announcement before the players report back to training on Thursday/Friday.

Believable14 Unbelievable10

Why would Lee Bowyer need to look around Elland Road? Like he's never been there before :-s

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would he need to look around you plum he has played there before

Agree0 Disagree0

Posted a similar rumour around the same time and hasnt even been put up yet.heard he was discussing terms

Agree0 Disagree0

Does Lee Bowyer not know what ER looks like then? I personally don't want the guy back, he has proven himself to be a thug on more than one occassion and bought Leeds into disrepute, proven

We don't need thugs at ER we have a (undeserved) bad enough reputation asit is?

Agree0 Disagree0

Finally, somebody else who agrees with me. Has it not occurred to people that the ground has changed over the past few years?

TRUST ME THIS TRANSFER WILL HAPPEN

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope this is true. Someone with bollocks, is needed in midfield.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would he look around er sure he knows all about it

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe his memory is not what it was, he is getting on a bit ;O)

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would he need to look around, he used to play for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would he need to look around Elland Road, it's not like he's never been there before?
Maybe he just fancied a pack of snouts and a chip butty.

Agree0 Disagree0

HAS ELLAND ROAD CHANGEE MUCH SINCE LAST TIME HE WAS THERE?

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd like Bowyer to come back to Leeds, but he's nearly 35.. only got about 2 years left Max.

Agree0 Disagree0

Could Be lookin at all the work thats Bein done

Agree0 Disagree0

Some changes may have took place but no major ones. LB would not be taking a tour like other possible transfers would. These X-player rumours are really starting to grate. Everyone is talking themselves into us getting old players, and then you'll not actually give our actuall new signings (when they happen) a chance because your all obsessed over the old boys. Move on

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would Bowyer need to 'look around' ER given he played there for a good many years. Is he on a John McClelland tour?

Agree0 Disagree0

He's probably looking at the plans for Ken Bates' Hotel, he'll by buying a time share off him.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 14:38:35
Went on holiday to Marbella earlier on this year had an argument with a man in the que to get on the plane for only to end up being sat next to him on the flight we eventually got chatting and turns out hei s a football agent who represents higher earners ( Michael Essien etc) also the man who took alex bruce to elland road, dont worry i questioned him WHY but he did inform me he had been for a meal with Ken bates and there was mention of a fairly decent sized sponser near enough finalised wasnt given any names as to who the sponser was but was told to watch this space.

Believable8 Unbelievable10

Why make up such elaborate rubbish? sponsorship negotiations have nothing to do with Bates, thats for Harvey and the commercial department to sort

Agree0 Disagree0

I try and image how sad peoples lives must have to be too make up bullsh*t rumours on here, but seriously who is that bored of life?

Agree0 Disagree0

You should get a job writing for a top soap. Great stroryline and plot.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 14:33:50
RUMOURS COMING IN THAT 33YR OLD ROY CARROLL BEING LINED UP AS REPLACEMENT FOR KASPER AS HE IS CURRENTLY UNATTACHED AND LOOKING FOR A NEW CLUB {Ed015's Note - could be worse, it could be Paul Rachubka....... o wait, already made that mistake :L }

Believable8 Unbelievable16

Roy Carroll was on Talksport this morning and he said he is looking to get back into English football in the Prem or Championship. He said so far he has had nothing and is a bit disappointed. I don't think Leeds will be lining him up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally agree as I heard his talksport interview this morning also. More importantly though lets hope not as he's bloody rubbish

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 13:36:07
If another club bids for any leeds player they will sell them because they are in debt. {Ed015's Note - no we aint}

Believable4 Unbelievable19

Ed, can you not filter out the mancs ? {Ed015's Note - i just like proving them wrong, }

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds are one of eleven clubs in the English leagues who are not in debt, also we are one of seven clubs out of the whole football league who made a profit last year, get your facts strait pal

Agree0 Disagree0

Where have you been for the last 6 years?

Agree0 Disagree0

How can we be in debt we never spend any money

Agree0 Disagree0

Not yet any way...lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Were do the muppets get off....LISTEN CAREFULLY....WE ARE IN PROFIT

Agree0 Disagree0

Where have we been for 6 years?? Scum fan i assume?? remember Old Trafford January 2010?? Beckford?? You Do? Well Shut it then haha

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 13:24:20
Leeds to sign 2 by Thursday and they might b surprises but well worth the wait. Max is going 2b offered a new improved 3 year deal which will make him highest earner. Bates knows if he sells him the reaction could ruin the season so he has put up the money
Keith LUFC

Believable20 Unbelievable9

How are you so sure?

Agree0 Disagree0

What a crock. Ken Bates cares not a jot about fans reactions.

Agree0 Disagree0

No KB certainly wouldnt care about the fans opinions. Although anyone with any brains would offer Max a new contract

Agree0 Disagree0

He doesn't care about the fans opinions, he cares about the fans money. If Gradel gets sold attendances will drop and less season tickets will be sold, guaranteed.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 13:01:57
Just a rumour but I've heard Matt Derbyshire is available after Birminghams relegation and SG is interested,

------------------//--////////////---------
Derbyshire was on loan to birmigham from on top Greek side carnt think which one it was tho if some could get that info would be good.

Believable3 Unbelievable11

Olympiacos

Agree0 Disagree0

Derbyshire went on loan because of the new manager who came in and didn't play him. Derbyshire also wants to return to England. He's a former U21 England international. I would say if Leeds did make a bid for him he could be tempted.

Agree0 Disagree0

IT WAS OLYMPIAKOS.. WHOEVER DISAGREED, SLEEP.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 12:57:57
Just a rumour but I've heard Matt Derbyshire is available after Birminghams relegation and SG is interested, would see the end of Paynter. {Ed015's Note - it wont see the end of paynter.. give him a chance}

I would tear there arms of to get him if the chance came about

Believable5 Unbelievable9

He isnt that good doesnt score enough goals and was poor in birminghams run in if we want a striker which we dont need we should be after david nugent

Agree0 Disagree0

Well if you'd tear your arms off to get him, you would not be able to clap when he shines for us.
What's the good in that ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Derbyshire is a class C striker, and we already have one in Paynter, don't we? I really don't think we'll be signing any strikers. Four senior players is more than enough, especially if we continue to play one upfront.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 12:51:17
sam allardyce is after gradel. hope we can keep him.

source - the sun

Believable8 Unbelievable19

How exciting, give us a taster

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry, was supposed to be a reply to the development post, apologies {Ed015's Note - i was rather confused lol}

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 12:51:07
Something big happening behind the scenes at elland rd
all this mis-information that is being bandied about, all the stuff about new shirts, new sponsors, transfer stuff ........
its all symtomatic of behind closed door activity
believe me I know
massive plans for development with major companies involved
watch this space
MOT

Believable16 Unbelievable16

Development? iro stadia or playing staff?

Agree0 Disagree0

I have also got the same feeling, does seem a bit strange this summer, no major signings, no new kit released yet, I remember hearing Bates saying on yorkshire radio that the club will be working hard off the field to counter-act the parachute payments that the relegated clubs will receive...hhhhmmmmm.....interesting.

Agree0 Disagree0

Transfer window doesnt open until friday

Agree0 Disagree0

Just got this feeling that theres more to what's happening than meets the eye

Notice nothing with any financial implications has happened or is even leaking out

Something serious going on ..................

Agree0 Disagree0

HHHhhhhhmmmmmmm NO
Wishful thinking......the simple matter is the sponsorship deal fell through, therefore shirts are delayed due to us having to obtain a new sponsor As for late signings, players are only just returning from holidays, weve already lost two signings that we wanted to make to other clubs, we wanted to offload players that wanted to leave in order to see which areas needed adressing and what funds from those sales would be brought in, and as per usual we were waiting for the list of free transfers. Their is NOTHING more to it, No Smith, No conspiracy just Leeds being typical Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 12:16:57
i can confirm 100% that leeds will not bee signing m Johnson on loan and that has come straight from his mother who says he as just signed a 2 year deal and will be staying at city to fight for a place

100 % true is this {Ed015's Note - He wont get into the city 1st team due to the players they have and have been linked with,would be lucky to make the 25man squad}

Believable4 Unbelievable20

Note to Ed - It's not about luck, it's about squad regulations. MJ is one of the very few players at City who is classified as ''homegrown'' and will thus probably make the 25-man squad. Merely a back-up player of course, but I don't think Mancini is willing to make the same mistakes again, when he had to put players like Abdisalim Ibrahim on the field.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 12:08:27
I'm all for getting behind the manager who in my opinion has done a very good job so far, however when you sell Kasper saying that that's an area we need to improve because of the 70 odd league goals we conceded does he not know who our back four was last year?? In my opinion we had the worst back four in all 4 top flight english leagues last season and if not for Kasper we would have struggled for even a top half finish. I'm sorry to say it but i'm starting to lose faith hopefully SG proves me wrong with a major goalkeeper coming in. MOT {Ed015's Note - I have heard from a number of places that kaspers ego got in the way at ER and caused problems on and off the pitch! }

Believable16 Unbelievable3

I heard the same about Kasper. . . . DONT YOU KNOW WHO MY FATHER IS ?. . .what a shame {Ed015's Note - Hes still young, he aint the 1st player to be like that, he will mature tho, but we crnt have a player like that as 1st choice if we are serious about promotion, would stil have liked him to stay but wish him all the best }

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe his ego did get in the way but generally the best players know they are the best players and people see that as arrogance when in truth it's just being honest as I say though hopefully SG will pull someone out of the bag

Agree0 Disagree0

I guarantee our new number 1 goalie will be joe murphy. this season is guna suck

Agree0 Disagree0

Heard a rumour that he had a major problem with 1 of the other players dont no who but it must have been some 1 well thought of but theres no player bigger than the club and regardless of who comes in or goes out we will still support them MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

When I heard what SG was saying that goalkeepers position was an area to improve, I was bemused. I thought MS did more then the back 4 put together did. If SG is really serious, then I have my doubts about him. The back 4 is the area where we needed improment, not MS. and one in the middle and a forward.
I dont think Bates will spend a penny on new Players-- ONLY ON THE FREE or sell-by dates players.

Agree0 Disagree0

Interesting Ed- Thanks for the info bud
I must admit I never rated Kaspers attitude, simply because of his father he thought he was better than what he was. And No Ive not only thought this way since he was told he could go, Ive thought it all along. Simply because a players doing well doesnt mean you can excuse his behaviour if it was effecting the dressing room I do think SG seriously needs to address the back 4, KS should not be an escape on the the other four, they too were woeful

Agree0 Disagree0

Well 24-year-old GK is hardly a finished product... And even more than that, our defense lacked any kind of stability. It's the no.1 thing in forming a good defense, stability. Shuffling the back four from game to game didn't do us any favours.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 11:35:14
Just a rumour but I've heard Matt Derbyshire is available after Birminghams relegation and SG is interested, would see the end of Paynter. {Ed015's Note - it wont see the end of paynter.. give him a chance}

Believable0 Unbelievable16

Matt Derbyshire was on loan from Olympiakos or another Greek club, but i'm not sure on what his contract obligations were there.

Agree0 Disagree0

Paynter is rubbish he played infront of Ross McCormack who would you rather play? No brainer really and what did Paynter do apart from doing nothing for 90 minutes and McCormack scored more and played a load of games less than paynter.I want Paynter out he has had a chance more of a chance than McCormack so it shows Paynter is only good enough for League One

Agree0 Disagree0

Youve gotta give paynter a chance he hardly played last season and he was getting better towards end of season..

just seen woodgate at thorp arch training ground, possible transfer?
-------------------

What were you doing at Thorp Arch may I ask, and where were security? {Ed015's Note - its not hard to get close to thorp arch}

Believable15 Unbelievable12

Why does everyone say they see people near thorpe arch? I work on the trading estate near it & there is nothing there except a prison opposite All liars coz you cant see anything from the start of the driveway leading upto it & security will stop you before you get halfway down it.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed: Might not be difficult to get close, but why would the poster be up there, and if he was, lets have a reason... ? {Ed015's Note - could of been near to thorp arch, who knows to be honest}

Believable12 Unbelievable16

He was probably buying a new settee from DFS; it's a large furniture centre next to the training ground. This obviously now he has a 7 year contract worth 50k per week

Leeds to Sign Alan Smith(free), Nicky Shorey(free), Nick Montgomery(free), Chris Kirkland(free) and Eric Lichaj(Loan)

Team for next Season
......................Kirkland
.......Lichaj.Kisnorbo.O'Brien.Shorey
Snodgrass.Smith......Montgomery.Gradel
.........................Howson
..................Becchio

Believable5 Unbelievable23

Hm hope gradel is staying

Agree0 Disagree0

That would be a great team. defo title contenders

Agree0 Disagree0

Smith Wont be signing he cant agree wages as he wants to stay on 55k.
Was on the YEP site.

Agree0 Disagree0

What's wrong with Mcormack? Would much rather see him alongside Becchio and play 4 in midfield than try and accomodate Smith

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree, why should we try to accomodate him? I thought McCormack showed a lot of potential at the back end of the season, he certainly deserves his chance and I think SG saw it too.

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 10:48:19
Leeds to sign Alex Smithies or Tomasz Kuszack to resolve goalkeeper problems.
We'll sign atleast one out of Woodgate, Bowyer or Smith.
And a part exchange deal will see Montgomery come to Elland Road with Billy Paynter going the other way.

-And tbh If we can get 4mil for Snodgrass i'd happily let him go aslong as we have a certain replacement lined up, for example, I wouldnt mind seeing Sanchez again next season. Lloyd Sam should also be given another chance after how he started last season

MOT

Believable16 Unbelievable10

I think Montgomery is a possibility. Wuld certainly be a good addition. but Grayson has already made it clear Paynter is going nowhere. Its his golfing buddy.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not one word has being mentioned about a striker with the strikers we have, but if we get rid of BP we will have to bring in another striker as well a Keeper, Midfielders, Defenders. So giv BP a break he had a serious injury last season, SG stated he is part of his plans......M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

If a fair price came for Gradel and Snodgrass I would let them go. By fair price I mean above 5mil. However, I would only let them go providing we have some equally talented signings or better siginings in mind.

Agree0 Disagree0

The thing is we never put money back into the team for a replacement so for that reason alone Snoddy needs to remain at the club.
Forget the old times they need to be long forgotten about Not a chance we'd get any of them and two of them arent even worth it
Smithies I definately hope happens, and pray Paynter passes him on the way out

Agree0 Disagree0

Ali Al-Habsi from Bolton. Simon reckons he is World Class keeper in the making and is going to stretch the boat finance wise to get him. Fact. {Ed015's Note - Wont happen}


Bolton won't £5mill for him so I don't think Leeds will sign him do you. Plus Wigan and some other premiership team won't him.

Im a Window Cleaner in Leeds, i hate the "just seen" stories and i never believe them, so make of this what you will, just seen Stephen Ireland ( or a very good lookalike) walking down whitehall road with someone coming down from either a carpark or a hotel/apartments on the canal. Everyone walking down that road normally has a suit on, thats why he stood out as i was at traffic lights. Coninceidentally the direction he was walking lead to either the city centre or the crowne plaza. As i say, might have no connection with LUFC at all, and it could have been a very good lookalike. but I would swear blind it was him. I cant see Leeds catching a player like that but after seeing Kasper go im hoping Grayson 7 or 8 more quality players like this coming in. Am i getting my hopes up? Probably.

Believable10 Unbelievable22

I saw a man with a bald head in Leeds.... Hmmmmm....

Agree0 Disagree0

Aye did he have a beard? lol i suppose there may be a few who look like that bald head and black stubble/beard. but id swear blind it was him. cant see leeds united getting him tho. we are only buying ugly names this year. grimes, rachubka, gimple, to go wi snodgrass. Expect a few names like that. tshabalala cud be bout right lol

Agree0 Disagree0

I have a bald head and was walking there on my way to work today. It was probably me

Agree0 Disagree0

Could easily have been Stephen Ireland as his agent is based in Leeds I believe - dont think this means he will be signing for us tho

Agree0 Disagree0

His agent is east leeds based (fact) and he often comes up. Unless bates is willing to pay 50k a week plus I wouldn't get over excited.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh yeah...

Agree0 Disagree0

You called Dermot mate?

Agree0 Disagree0

Ok... you just said you hate just seen stories.. SO WHY TELL US ONE??

Agree0 Disagree0

Its true these just seen stories are so farfetched and i never beleive them. but i really did see ireland, spitting image, its that cheshire grin and slap head with a beard i recognised. i think the guy whose informed us his agent is leeds based, i think thats most likeley the case here. Im now certain it was him. and i agree, Leeds aint got a cat in hells chance unless we are gonna be getting took over by a tycoon. Would have been great signing tho.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds United have been keeping a close eye on Australian youth international Dylan Tombides, With Tombides' first team chances limited at West Ham with all the signings they are/will be making, it's thought he would be open to a move & Leeds are ready to test West Ham's resolve with a bid of around 400k rising to 800K.

Julian Speroni to be Leeds' No.1 next season.

Believable29 Unbelievable16

So Grayson thinks hes better than Kasper ?
He said he was going to get a better keeper than Kasper
If thats the case hes lost the plot

Agree0 Disagree0

It'll be difficult to find someone better than kaspar...not sure speroni is the way to go

Agree0 Disagree0

Speroni is one of the best keepers in the div

Agree0 Disagree0

Kasper was sold because he was a disruptive influence within the squad Fact
1.5 million for an average keeper with 12 months left on his contract, id say that s good business. Did you see his position for set pieces last season?

Agree0 Disagree0

What has everyone on here been taking?? are we talking about the same kasper schmeichel who cannot communicate with his back four? who cannot come to catch a cross without every leeds fan in the world gasping for air? these days to be a top keeper you have to be a lot more than a good shot stopper cos thats all he was that and a schmeichel?? time to move on speroni proven at this level although id like to smithies

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jun 2011 00:12:27
Ed why are there adverts for a blackburn season ticket and a scum V.I.P match day ticket this is a LUFC page, also i your opinion who do you think realistic targets are this transfer window ? {Ed015's Note - ads are placed by google., and realisticly? ... im not sure just yet, ask me again on friday lol }

well reading all the rumours and speculation we must now have being linked with every Keeper in the land, why ppl carnt just wait and see. the surprise will out do the guessing lol.

Believable4 Unbelievable7

Whats funniest is no one ever puts a rumour up before someone like Kasper goes, only when theyve left as its enevitable we'll need a replacement keeper lol So much for their men in the know ;) lol
