leeds united....
just seen on the sky sports website rotherham have rejected a bid of £200,000 for adam le fondre, because they want £250,000 minimum, im assuming that le fondre will be on around £2,000 maximum per week, now, given our injury problems would it not make sense to simon grayson to go to ken bates and say, I WANT LE FONDRE, proven goalscorer 50 goals in his last 2 seasons, low wages, and low signing fee.... does this make sense to anyone else?? go get him simon, he is young, ambitious, lively, quick and scores goals for fun, leeds4life

Coudn't agree more... he has all the attributes Paynter doesn't

Agree0 Disagree0

We need players that are gna be good enough for the premiership not league 1/2 players

Agree0 Disagree0

If we can get players who are good enough to get us back to prem, then why not. We can allways sell em on, probably at a profit. Theres no loyalty in football anymore.

Agree0 Disagree0

Good goalscorer but very lazy like beckford and rarely defends

Agree0 Disagree0

They publicly stated that they want 1.5m
personally I think 600-700k would secure but that's too much for a L2 player

Agree0 Disagree0

Regarding the reply to my post above, you say we need players good enough for the prem, not league 1/2, in case you hadnt noticed, we are not in the prem and lower league players generally have more to prove moving up a league, and given the FACT the lad has scored over 50 goals in 2 seasons we should be doing our best to get him, he has everything we need, and we have the players round him to supply the chances, HE KNOWS WHERE THE NET IS remember beckford came from a lower league look how well he did for us. leeds4life

Agree0 Disagree0

I've seen Rotherham many times over the last few seasons as my dad is a Millers fan, and I am VERY unimpressed with Le Fondre. He is slow and dumpy with a bad attitude, he basically went on strike for the last half of last season and scored next to nothing. He is nowhere near good enough for the Championship.

Agree0 Disagree0

Makes sense to me given limited finances, best thing to do is pick up good players with potential from L1 and L2 rather than past it players from Premier.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Adam Le Fondre would be a decent gamble i know he's league 2 but where did Beckford come alot lower than league 2 and he banged goal in for us left right and centre

Agree0 Disagree0

Believable7 Unbelievable10

Spector is joining brum skysport.com keith andrew not played enough for me over the last year

Agree0 Disagree0

You mean the same Mr Spector that's signing for Birmingham on Monday?

Agree0 Disagree0

He may well be rumoured to be signing for Birmingham on Monday but that does not rule out the possibility that Leeds could snatch him from under there noses.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeh & thats happened loads this close season hasn't it u dingbat?

Agree0 Disagree0

Just wanted to post "dingbat", quality

Has monty Gimpel been given a squad number or is this just a rumour?

Believable3 Unbelievable15

He is an academy player why would he be given a first team squad number?

Agree0 Disagree0

Out of the loop with this one. Not sure how old or good he was

Agree0 Disagree0

just got back from the open fun day got becchio, s autograph and photo while we were waiting for it to start he told me he, ll only be out another 3 weeks squad numbers of note brown 8 obrien 5 .

Believable13 Unbelievable5

And when will he be match fit? You know what pre-season is for right? Well he didn't do one, in fact he has been carrying an injury since the end of last season so has not trained properly for 5 months. Anyway fingers crossed cos he is the only proven striker we have.

Agree0 Disagree0

Did you see McFadden at the open day? I heard rumours he attended.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2011 13:34:12
As everybody forgot your only allowed 5 subs this term. Yes true enough you need a good team to start with but i feel most squads will be evened up as long as their players are fit. So come on and put all these gloomy issues to one side and focus on the season ahead. Yipppeeee the football season is starting again.

Believable8 Unbelievable3

Think your dead right and when Sven picks his team and then realises that most of the signings he made were to just try and look good, cos to be honest most of them went for money and prob couldnt give a t**ss if leicester got promoted or not so didnt derserve to wear the mighy whites shirt, Super Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

what do you think about these livermore roumers ed? Are they true? I think he would be a good replacement for Johnson {Ed015's Note -hope not}

Believable8 Unbelievable7

If sg goes for livermoore he s lost the plot.. After the palace game last season I spoke Naylor in VW garage he without hesitation blamed livermoore for failing to get in playoffs.. Said he was unfit arrogant and only their As a favour for Tim sherwood coach at spurs to get him match fit ?

MPs now demand Leeds United ownership investigation

Believable12 Unbelievable3

They will find some skeletons in the closet bates is a con man.This whole ownership thing is a farse typical bates.

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree, once again our beloved club was sold down the swanny by some scummy businessmen who just didn't care about the club. We need a chairman like Bill Kenwright, just a Yorkshire version not a scally obviously.

Agree0 Disagree0

Truly unbelievable You clueless people please leave our club alone. We don't want you bates haters. Oh and by the way person above, Kenwright is even less popular at everton than Bates is here.

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2011 12:20:06
Surely we must be getting at least 3 signings if not 4 in the next few days
We need a left back, central defender, holding midfielder and a loan striker
We play Southampton next week and the squad is very thin
Why hasnt Grayson sorted the defence out, that was our main problem last season, leaking goal after goal.
Will Paddy be injury free most of the season ? We will have to wait and see
Bates states 3 weeks ago we are getting 4 new players in, where are they then ?
Yes i know the window will still be open, but the sooner we get them in the better.
We need a good start as this season, as it will be harder than last years

news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/14049277.stm

Believable11 Unbelievable1

Why has Bates made statements like that ?
4 players due in
Lies lies lies
Pull ya finger out

Why is grayson waiting for the premier league teams to name there squads so he can sign average loan players again i hope we dont go that way again cant he remember what happended last season with the joke signings we made brown mccartney livermore bannan

Believable10 Unbelievable1

Bannan? We had him for like a month, he's a good player who was a regular in the villa side last year

Agree0 Disagree0

Bannan is a grate player Grayson never gave him the chance

Agree0 Disagree0

He is not great for Leeds because he is the wrong sort of player. Even G. McCallister said he was poor defensively. How many more attacking mid fielders do we want?

Agree0 Disagree0

Bannan was quality, and McCartney wasn't too bad

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2011 11:26:39
Very quiet on here, have we finally ran out of players to mention that we wont be signing.

Spurs midfielder Jake Livermore is set for a permanant deal out of the club, with Blackpool, Leeds and Reading all linked with a £650,000 bid.

(from the main page) Hope this isnt true :(

Believable6 Unbelievable12

I am so relieved to see there is competition for his signature , means we wont be getting him.

Believable14 Unbelievable2

He may have been just because you personally don't know that he has doesn't mean he hasnt

Agree0 Disagree0

30 Jul 2011 09:48:43
Btw guys, this isn't FIFA you can pick any random player and say Leeds are intrested in him.

Heard that we are interested in spurs midfielder Jake livermore. Dunno why he was rubbish last season I thought

Believable7 Unbelievable7

I thought he was alright, just got a few too many yellow cards ?

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought his first appearance when he came off the bench, he showed a few touches, looked strong and i thought, this is who leeds are needing in the team. but then every game he played after that, he was sloppy, gave the ball away, and did not look very intelligent on the ball. Basically he was crap. Must have some quality tho as he is a Tottenham Hotspur player in the premiership. I didnt rate him whatsoever tho. Barry Bannan played that game against Forest and i thought he was like Bremner, He controlled the whole game. Grayson never played him again after that, and when he left he slammed grayson for wasting his time insisting he would have got more game time at Villa. Which he was right about. Ever since he did that eveyone has slagged bannan off saying he was terrible. I only saw quality. Livermore however was poor.

Agree0 Disagree0

Both Bannon and Livermore were poor for Leeds mainly because they were not the type of player we needed at the time and now for that matter. Too many mid fielders doing the same sort of job. You can only play so many. We need ball winners as well.

Agree0 Disagree0
