Leeds to offer paynter and bruce plus 1 million for jordan rhodes

Believable24 Unbelievable36

Would welcome this rumour with open arms if true
however i think Lee Clark will push for better quality in exchange, or at least 3mill for Rhodes who is now a proven international striker

Agree4 Disagree0

We wish, he will go to a low prem club or a top 3 championship side, and unfortunately, as much as I love Leeds United, that doesn't include us. Top quality striker though without a shadow of a doubt

Leeds to beat bolton in race to sign crawley cb kyle mcfadzean

Believable21 Unbelievable16

That's what we need to do, stop signing awful prem players on loan and look to the lower leagues for quality individuals. Worked for Norwich to a certain extent?

Believable11 Unbelievable19

Its not unbelievable that a premier club could come in for him!

However, it is UNBELIEVEABLE that Snoddy would actually sign for them (hopefully!)

Agree3 Disagree2

Pugh pens 2 year deal; becchio may go to Middlesbrough and Leeds to sign Gradel on loan,

Believable7 Unbelievable40

Why would gradel come back to us on loan when we have tpwnsend on loan (So he wouldn't get a game) AND he plays regularly for st ettienne?

Agree1 Disagree0

Leeds should take a look at 21yr old Le Havre AC striker Ryan Mendes Da Graca. He attracted interest from Aston Villa in the summer and has scored 9 goals in 18 appearances this season.
Certainly worth a look.
Oh & he's very pacey.

Come on then ! I was just trying to think who the worst striker we have had over recent years ? Here's some to start you off.


Believable18 Unbelievable4

Dickinson was a left back? remember Anthony Elding?

Agree0 Disagree3

He means the Dickinson that looked like Gok Wang (Gay clothes presenter).


I bet there are many more that I cant remember!


Agree2 Disagree3

Michael Ricketts 25 league games no goals, makes Billy paynter look Like a prolific striker,

Agree7 Disagree1

Showumni was a bit unlucky- Dickinson was dreadful at everything!

Agree6 Disagree0

Musta wiped dickinson from my memory... who was he, when did he get a game?? elding was bad! where is he now? how bout carl shutt?? apart from that 1 goal at camp nou....

Agree2 Disagree0

Carl Shutt- If my memory serves me right he scored 2 or 3 on his home debut. What about Ian Rush? Leeds managed to turn him from a prolific goalscorer to a useless has been in no time at all- Just like we usually manage with every high profile striker we sign!

Agree2 Disagree0

Liam Dickinson we got him on loan from derby he's at Southend now eldings last club I can remember his last club being Rochdale he is elsewere now though

Agree2 Disagree0

Cyril chapius, lamine sakho, remember them chancers when we were premier league and had a squad full of loan players lol.

Agree2 Disagree0

I can remember being at an away game at middlesbrough when Nigel Worthington committed a foul on the half way line and instinctively all Leeds fans sang OFF! OFF! OFF! he was deadful - I can recall Carlton Palmer playing in the same game - what a donkey he was!!!

Agree2 Disagree2

I think the original poster said strikers, but yeah roque junior was pretty awful! Lamine Sakho to be honest i remember him being okay.

Agree1 Disagree0

Two players which were dreadful for us but now playing ok. Marlon king and Danny graham.....couldnt hit a barn door!

Agree1 Disagree1

Believable15 Unbelievable37

Don't even joke about that. I will blow my own brains out if it does happen

Agree6 Disagree0

Believable11 Unbelievable9

If the rumour is true Simon Grayson was 2 minutes from the dole but the late goals will keep him in the job until at least the end of January. He has been given 2 million and anything thing he makes on players leaving ER. The relief shown by him jumping down the sidelines was there to see.

Believable12 Unbelievable15

Leeds have signed Danny Pugh on a 2 and 1/2 year contract from Stoke.


Believable29 Unbelievable5

Well done ken bates looks like aidy whites next out the door with arsenal and bolton offering him a contract for end of season

Believable23 Unbelievable19

Well, they cant until its 3 months left on the current contract so shut it.

Agree1 Disagree0

If you had the chance to play for Arsenal wouldn't you go ?

Agree1 Disagree0

We urgently need a new owner and a new manager
Its a absolute disgrace

Agree2 Disagree0

If Aidy white goes it DOES show a lack of commitment......

Good to se Thompson coming through today, unfortunately you have to wonder if he'll be another on his way when we need these youngsters so badly?

Agree2 Disagree0

To say I was elated was an understatement losing a game against 10 men would have been hard to swallow on top of the last three games. I'm a Grayson supporter but playing one man up front against 10 men is maybe showing a tactical ineptness or is it that his players just aren't listening ..........we need new players sooner than later but it's time to get behind the manager

Agree2 Disagree1

He wasnt playing 1 man up front as much as nunez wasnt doing his job as a second striker. Grayson kept telling him to get further up but he kept dropping back into the hole

Agree0 Disagree1

02 Jan 2012 17:51:44
See what happens when you utilize the squad Larry. May have only won in last second against 10 men but better performance. Use the squad. That's why you have it. Keep players fresh. Introduce youngsters for a few games and give them experience. Use the squad Larry, use the squad. By the way, use the squad.

Believable32 Unbelievable3

Good to see Thompson pulled in, when are the Turners going to be given their chance?

Agree3 Disagree0

Not sure if this is out yet but Leeds will sign SeanSt Ledger this week

Believable15 Unbelievable23

I hope not, the guys a t**t. I know him personally from his days at Peterborough. If you watch him carefully he's no better than Lees or Kisnorbo

Agree1 Disagree0

I dont think so mate always plays well at international level for ROI and will want first team footie in the lead up to euro 2012. But not at leeds (even tho he would be a good addition) papers on this side of the irish sea have linked him with celtic!

Agree2 Disagree1

Nah, defo no good enough for Leeds. If unwanted an Irish Footballers opinion I would have asked, but because your standard of football is so unbelievablely shocking I will have to decline your view. Now go and pick some potatoes

Agree2 Disagree2

What happened to Leeds signing Montgommery from Sheff Utd in the summer? Just seemed to fizzle out it appeared he was set for us then I heard nothing again?

Believable4 Unbelievable12

Everyone realised how bad he was before we signed!thank god. We need quality players not league one.

Agree1 Disagree1

He didn't want to come,,,,not worth going after

Agree1 Disagree1

02 Jan 2012 12:04:40
Bostock anyone? I reckon he's a pretty good player

Believable11 Unbelievable6

I would say yes. My mates a spurs fan and rates him highly but he cant get in the first team. I think he could be another clayton. Worth a shot i think.

Agree1 Disagree0

02 Jan 2012 11:43:54

Believable7 Unbelievable28

Why would we want another second rater in clinigan. I Have watched him play a couple of times this season is best described as average. I for one hope we dont sign him

Agree1 Disagree0

Agree1 Disagree1

I agree Clingan not the answer, no better than what we have

Agree2 Disagree0

Can somebody explain why i hear savics name mentioned on this site, he is a regular on the bench at manchester city. blaggs my head

Agree0 Disagree0

The only one i can see is clingan, but i live in the midlands, and i have a few mates who follw cov, and they dont seem thatbothered that he will be off.... he a tries... but thats bout it!
would much rather some players like orr and connoly from qpr and salif diao from stoke...hell i'll even take titus bramble.... is this what has become of us!!

Agree1 Disagree0

Big rumour; Newcastle don't rule out smith elland road return

Believable11 Unbelievable33

Where's the source? Leeds have been linked with him since he left? And will continue to do so!

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a fit player anymore for this level - and he is untested and unfit - with no games - He is what one would call a CROCKed and spent force - so NO THANKS

Agree1 Disagree0

Smith would walk into this Leeds team with his eyes closed.he'd be our best striker, and best central mid easy. Fouls more than David batty tho that's the problem.lot fitter than brown tho

Agree0 Disagree1

As much as i would love to see a fit, firing, hungry smithy back at elland road its fair to say the longer this rumour has gone on the less he has to offer us and the older he has become.... therefor i would say its time to put this rumour to bed because its not going to happen, and hes just not got what we require, sorry smudge, thanx for the momories....

Agree1 Disagree1
