Clingan will sign a pre-contract with Leeds as he wants to see out the rest of his current contract at Coventry.

Believable7 Unbelievable18

Jesus, the man IS NOT coming. lets face is who would play for a manager who can't manage.

Agree0 Disagree0

No one cares, we dont need a site we are s**t it is unbelievable. 19k there tonight will be 10k by year end, feel cheated yet again and grayson just needs to shut is gob! he talks crap

Agree0 Disagree0

SG and KB have got to go.no signing of note and no chance of a play off place now.im done with them 4 the season now.

Agree0 Disagree0

Enough is a enough how much longer must we put up with regime. ok we cant get rid of bates but there must be enough money in the kitty to get rid of grayson. larry is even worse as a manager than blackwell.

Agree0 Disagree0

I've been saying it on here since early november, Grayson has to go! 35 loan players and still that defence is a sham. He's been very lucky to get some of the points we have this season, last min goals where we haven't been in the game(Burnley twice, Ipswich, Watford)and there's more, they just papered over the cracks! Sorry Simon, been a Leeds fan is not enough for me anymore, time to go.

Agree0 Disagree0

Come on please its time we all wised up. Forget the rumours there won't be any. We are constantly lied to about signings, deals in the making and constantly let down. The team is simply not a team but a mixture of loanees , frees hows it suppose to gel. Look last two teams to get promoted least loans of any teams now that says it all. Lies , Lies ,Lies so what we all gonna do about it ?

Agree0 Disagree0

What he means is he will wait to see if Coventry go down, And if like Norwich they do, He will be coming back to you and sign on the dotted line, He has a habbit of when the going gets tough, know what I mean, Good luck Leeds you desearve better, But don't just blame the Chairman, Look what Lambert has done with little money spent,

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2012 20:29:24
don't think clingan will be coming he's in the coventry squad and playing.

Believable24 Unbelievable5

Ok Leeds win 3-2 after being down 2-1 Birmingham have spector sent off in 76 mins i know this as fact

Believable4 Unbelievable25

He's right my dads dogs friends with graysons dog

Agree0 Disagree0

OMG Hope This statement is true , were loosing 2-1 now, Just hope for spector to get sent off now

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats why we need defenders GRAYSON! 1-3 absolute joke!!

Agree0 Disagree0

What a load of b****cks we can't defend for toffee. We are good going forward why why why can't that teat and w**ker bates but some decent defenders rather than playing kids.

Agree0 Disagree0

Never been more depressed about the way the club is being run. In the recent past there has been understandable reason why we went backwords. Not now nearly 10M has come in from transfers and not a lot has been spent. Good cup runs as well swelled the coffers but we can't buy decent players. Sick, but leeds till I die.

Agree0 Disagree0

I have been a Leeds fan for as long as I can remember even through the per Wilkinson days, but I remember the sprit we had and then the tee shirts (sh%t or bust this season promotion is a must) and we did It. outside the bank pub, town hall and conservatory pub, Leeds was full of Leeds fans. And let’s not forget the other pubs the Scarborough taps whistle stop (Leeds was alive and we all knew what the team was going for promotion and we supported them all the way) and in the end we did it.
We are Leeds but what do we have now,
I understand we are still trying to get out of the post publicity Pete days, and we don’t have a billionaire to back role us, and we can’t afford to match the money other clubs will pay for our players due to ground improvement and we have sell our home grown talent to balance the books (because he was a half descent player who should be on good money in the premiership looking to play for England full cap) maybe.
BUT WHAT DO WE HAVE NOW!!
A team that at best will be in the playoffs
A manager that starts every sentence, yes Ken
A fan base that has a go at the team, yes I admit I could be viewed as doing so. However I was at the Blackpool game paid for parking, food and tickets. And what makes it worse I can catch a ball!!
So ken we all know you are not a fool and you will be involved in Leeds return to the premiership, and, you are looking after Leeds brining the ground in line with premiership standards and not sticking all the money it in your pocket, and yes it was you that saved Leeds from our apparent nose dive in to non-league football.
Can you now please come clean and give us something to shout about, something like this
This is year 2 of our 5 year plan we will be playing top flight football in another year
I have a number of investors looking at Leeds we will be pushing next year
I have spent the last few years balancing the books, next year (s*it or bust promotion is a must) we will be going up.
PLEASE DO SOMETHING

Queens Park Rangers have announced Petter Vaagan Moen has left the club by mutual consent. hes a midfilder any use ?? Gj {Ed020's Note - winger. don't think we're in need of anymore, if anything its a defensive midfielder we're in need of still}

He has played a lot of centre of midfield in Norway before joining QPR... Rumours in Norway says he is on his way to Sweden or back home to Norway

Good to see andy o'brien is back training again. Everyone jumped on his back when he refused to play without knowing the full details, now we know he was suffering with depression. Lets get behind the lad when he plays again... Welcome back andy

Believable36 Unbelievable6

Big problem is alot of our fans are too critical of the players and publicly slag them off! tHIS HAPPENED WITH OBRIEN LONG BEFORE HE REFUSED TO PLAY! We need to put pressure on these guys when it gets personal to show them that we encourage and SUPPORT OUR TEAM!

Agree0 Disagree0

Couldn't agree more, the pressure from the hecklers got to him, then his wife left him to top it off. that would mess with anyone's mind.

Agree0 Disagree0

With the lack of ambition shown by the club I think they've got off lightly that only O'Brien became depressed.

Agree0 Disagree0

Before I go on, I want to make it clear that I'll be behind O'Brien as long as he's a Leeds player because I want him to play well, but the club must think we're "morons". We couldn't or wouldn't get a centre half in so they had no choice but to bring O'Brien back in. Nothing to do with understanding his problems - since has Bates ever sympathised with anyone?

Agree0 Disagree0

Not bothered if he's mental or not he's still crap
If he tried to hang himself he would get out jumped by the noose anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2012 17:47:05
two players to be announced at the game tonight a centre back and a midfielder most likely clingan

31 Jan 2012 17:37:39
Birmingham game gonna be tough tonight, they only lost something like 1 in last 7 matches, not conceeding many either. Having said that looking forward to seeing how Delph does alongside Clayts now he has had a bit of time to settle in and train with the lads. Come on Leeds! MOT

if you disagree then state your reasons

31 Jan 2012 17:27:28
no more signings today but no need to complain we finnally have options on the left wing with townsend and rogers 2 of the best signings of any championship team this window pugh as a role model to the younger players and young adam smith at the back a player with a huge futue aparently not going to lie i feel abit down hearted that we havent signed a centre midfielder apart from SUPER FABIAN 5 signings of good quality and still moaning loyal fas my arse

Believable9 Unbelievable4

There not signings, if your borrow 50 from the bank your not all that happy when you have to give it back are you?

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree with the above, Townsend, Delph & Smith are not signings, we have to give them back!

Signings are Rogers and Pugh, one a gamble and one steady but hardly the quality Leeds need. How many would pick Pugh in a best starting 11?

Not being negative, just realistic. I for one hope Rogers turns out to be a star but past experience tells me that Americans, whilst keen, rarely have what it takes (Goalkeepers excluded).

Agree0 Disagree0

Signings..your having a laugh,all we are doing is squandering all our money on loan deals.and when all these players go back at the end of the season and all the fansare asking where's the howson money gone,well the answer is on loan players wages,therefore we find ourselves with less and less assetts

Agree0 Disagree0

SIGNINGS SOLID to use an oft use phrase MY ARSE

Agree0 Disagree0

Changed your mind after the result?

31 Jan 2012 16:57:35
Welcome back Andy O'Brien, you have been in a dark place, i know i've been there a few times myself. You will come out of this stronger and you couldnt be at a better club with a better bunch of Lads to support you. MOT. {Ed020's Note - great post!!!!}

Believable22 Unbelievable3

If this was facebook i would like your status - welcome back OB {Ed020's Note - thats what it'd be!!}

Agree0 Disagree0

Hear hear Ed.

I expect to see a load of back tracking posts from those who were on the guys case.

Good luck and best thoughts for your journey back Andy.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well said mate we should all get behind him,we certainly need him

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with the editor and am pleased to see such a generous response from those writing in to this site. I think also a word of praise ought to go to Mr Bates. He is a rude, autocratic, belligerent person and probably one reason why few players want to come to Elland Road and no-one wants to invest in the club, but, on this occasion, when he knew the circumstances surrounding O'Brien's refusal to serve, he shut up. Shutting up has much to commend it sometimes. Well done!

Agree0 Disagree0

Be strong AOB!

One off the head to promote your rehabilitation will do nicely.

Agree0 Disagree0

I do hope Andy can come back and make an impact & inspire on & off the field. I have also suffered depression and dark days, like others I did come back stronger & happier and so will Andy with the right help and support. Hope he gets back into the team he deserves a second chance!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah course you are see if you are still spouting your crap come the close of the transfer window

Agree0 Disagree0

If this is true, I will be a happy man..you better not be lying ha ha

Agree0 Disagree0

This is obviously wrong as snodgrass isn't leaving. he already said he is happy at leeds and i have always said that no other team will be able to offer him as much game time as we do as he is in the first team EVERY GAME he is FIT for

Agree0 Disagree0

Neil collins wtf, we dont want lead boots back

Agree0 Disagree0

Presume you meant danny collins from stoke,by the way can you phone your uncle and tell him andrews is on his way to wba!if he were my uncle i wouldn't even own up to it the mans a brown nose merchant and above all else a nob!

Agree0 Disagree0

Snodgrass playing tonight - hopefully it means he's staying put!

Believable5 Unbelievable0

31 Jan 2012 16:34:00
It is saying on SSN that we are braced for Snodgrass bids.

If he does not play tonight then that tells me he is in talks elsewhere as he would not be able to play and then get anywhere to sign before the deadline.

Here's hoping he takes to the field tonight.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

I'm really worried we are gonna loose him to be honest. But its one of those situations, can you really reject a bidof 5-7 mill.

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2012 16:30:55
apparently andy o brien has been suffering from depression went to sporting chance clinic and he wasnt good frame of mind- why he didnt play vs burnley i think as a club leeds needs to welcome him back and fully support him in recovery we as a club know what it feels like how depression can affect players.

Believable14 Unbelievable0

Believable11 Unbelievable1

31 Jan 2012 16:27:16
A cb is all we need now in my opinion, and maybe Beckford on loan (personally i cant see Beckford ever returning). One of the better midfields in the league, White and Lees are top quality, hopefully Smith is good, a solid centre back and we're sorted me thinks MOT

Believable6 Unbelievable0

31 Jan 2012 16:16:48
Sky Sports understands at least two clubs are ready to make bids for Leeds United star Robert Snodgrass.

The Scotland international has emerged as Leeds' prized asset after club captain Johnny Howson moved to Norwich earlier this month.

But now it appears Leeds will have to fend off late interest in the window to keep the 24-year-old.

Norwich failed with a bid in the summer, whilst the likes of Aston Villa, Fulham, Sunderland, Everton and Blackburn have all been linked in the past few weeks.

Another possible issue to any deal is that Snodgrass is due to play for Leeds against Birmingham on Tuesday night, making any move logistically difficult.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

31 Jan 2012 16:14:40
Anybody heard rumours of snodgrass going to Rangers.People have reported it on the folloefollow website

Believable0 Unbelievable4

Rangers can't afford the money, swap deals are their only option, don't forget Rangers will be going bust next year FACT !!

hope AOB is given another chance by the fans, this[depression] has become a big issue lately in football so hope we can all get behind him and show him the support he needs. {Ed020's Note - so do i!!! depression is alot worse than people can imagine if they've not been affected by it}

Believable4 Unbelievable0

He wants to try sitting in the kop wk in wk out and travelling to Barnsley to watch us get whacked,come to think of it maybe i should check in at this clinic

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2012 16:04:05
i have just read on the official site that andy obrian has returned to full training following a spell out with depression.
i would like to urge all leeds fans to get behind him as depression is a serious matter. i work in mental health and with my understanding in this area feel it will cause him and the team a reaccurance of the past months episodes.
i would also like to point out that in his last game he played excellent and we kept a clean sheet.
dont get me wrong i think him and greyson went about the whole thing in completely the wrong way but he is back now thats what we have to work with so just treat him as you would if he had been out with a broken leg. p.s ed any news on other recruites?

Hearing that Snodgrass is off to Aston Villa as a cash+player deal worth £5m plus Heskey.

Believable0 Unbelievable8

Id rather have Paynter than Heskey and I dont really want him lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Haven't Villa announced Heskey's being released in summer. Even if we wanted him why would we take him as part payment when he would be free in summer?

Agree0 Disagree0

Being realistic i would take that... snodgrass is a gud player wen he can be bothered, decent goal return but i dont think 4-5mil is a decent sum for him. plus heskey wud be scare the hell out of defences in this league with his power and mccormack wud thrive playing of him

Agree0 Disagree0

Relax we have finally found the solution to our desperate need for a quality CB. Wait for it it's ............................................Andy O'Brien It seems he was a bit depressed when he refused to play against Burnley . So now that has been cleared up we don't need to sign a quality CB anymore. Besides we still have AOB on the wage bill.

Believable1 Unbelievable0

Depression isnt something to be mocked at..... crawl back under your stone, we dont need people like you posting on here.... have you forgotten what happend to gary speed!! through depression.... why dont people like you just keep your opinions to yourself!! hes taken his medicine, we should be giving him and others our support... marching on together... {Ed013's Note - You make a very good point so don't spoil it by swearing and abusive language. Any other time I would delete it, but I agree with what you say so I have edited it}

Believable2 Unbelievable1

31 Jan 2012 15:41:11
Andy O'Brien will resume training this week with Leeds United and will be available for selection.
The club brought disciplinary action against the player following his refusal to play against Burnley on the 19th November 2011. It was announced at that time that the player's future would be determined after a full investigation.
The investigation has led to a fuller understanding of the issues that the player has faced since the start of the season, which has seen him seek specialist medical treatment at the Sporting Chance Clinic for depression. It is felt he is now ready to recommence training and the club will facilitate any further treatment that is required.
The club said: "We were exceptionally disappointed when Andy refused to play before the Burnley game and felt let down. It is now apparent that there were a number of issues that he was dealing with at that time which affected him in a way we could not imagine and he was not in a right state of mind to make such decisions. On this basis we believe he deserves a second chance and we will do everything we can to assist him."
The club would appeal to its fans to support the player on his road back to first team action.

Expect kilgallon to sign today if sunderland complete kyrgiakos deal

That would be brilliant if true. Kilgallon was excellent at leeds. Had pace to get back to defend when he played high up the field, when the opposing team were through and a goal for them was expected.

Right one down 2 or 3 to go in the transfer market. Although i don't regard that a loan is a signing as it is a drain on material assets as the player doesn't belong to the club hence not even future profits for captain fishy bates.

Leeds should make a move for Frank Ohandza (19) from Buriram PEA F.C in the Thai premier league, 19 goals in 20 league games... To me he could be something special. We'd be able to get him for around £250,000 - £500,000

Believable3 Unbelievable3

I lived in thailand for 7 years and watched the thai premier league and to be honest its not much better than a pub league,its so slow and a wash with african no bodies,so i doubt this guy could step up to the plate to be honest!!

Nice to see the long term future is safe with another loan.

No difference betwen a loan and a short-term contract really - what matters is whether the team can play well. If we play well we can always buy people when we get promoted. At least if theyre crap we dont need to keep them.

We urgently need a striker,who scores goals
If we dont get a top striker in today,Bates is saying he doesnt want us to be promoted

Gradel and Howson money = around £4 million

Last chance saloon this season

Prove us morons wrong Masterbates

Believable4 Unbelievable3

More like topside of near 3 mill, and Bates DOES NOT CARE WHAT WE THINK OR SAY..

Agree0 Disagree0

Billy sharp has just gone to southhampton he would have been decent

Agree0 Disagree0

The Gradel + Howson cash paid is 2.5 million plus add ons, not 4 Million.

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio and mccormack will do upfront as becchio is starting to pick up his form now and mccormack will score every now and then and we cant afford a striker thats better than what we have got maybe get another loan player or a freeby but we might aswel just use nunez and forsell as our spares this season . more than likely grayson will revert to 4-2-3-1 which leaves us with more than enough strikers to finish the season so we need another CDM and a CB

Agree0 Disagree0

Clingan or McGugan for a new CM?
And hopefully St Ledger for CB

Great if Adam Smith signs as we need a decent Right Back but it is too quiet on the Centre Half front for my liking. Any change we could pick up St. Ledger now that Leicester have signed Morgan, or maybe Higginbotham as he is on a Free from Stoke (but NOT to play Left Back).

Leicester fan here, i have a nephew at spurs and have been to see him play / train etc a few times and i have also watched this youngster Adam Smith play, he looks a very good prospect, very sharp and intelligent! i think this could be a good signing for you.

Change the record, you mean, you HOPE we get Keith Andrews? We were linked in the summer and he turned us down for Ipswich, he WON'T be coming to Leeds mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Leeds will get dinner before they get Keith Andrews

Leeds will not sign anyone else this transfer window...
- St Ledger has said he thought he was going to Ipswich... NOT LEEDS (well done to all you who posted that rumour millions of times)
- Beckford was offered to us (according to Bates). He's now scored 5 in 3 rounds of the FA Cup, so will be going nowhere
- Smith has gone to MK Dons
- Sharp is going to The Saints

And lastly, Grayson said himself that deals are unlikely to be done on Tuesday because everyone is playing... Let's face it... Who wants to play for crap money for a team who play terrible football for a club with such high expectation??

Believable13 Unbelievable9

Optimistic then I take it? Why not get behind your team mate?
St Ledger would be the only one from that 4 we need, our problem isn't up front, we will always score goals, but u can't get promoted by conceding as many as we do, I realised that after the Blackpool game.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why dont you go and watch portsmouth! there fans dont winge as much as you

Agree0 Disagree0

Beckford scored 5 in 2 (not 3), a hat trick against Forest and a double against Swindon before coming off with a tight hamstring

Agree0 Disagree0

We won't get promoted with our defence fact. Another window of disappoint selling our best player and getting a loan in as a replacement.

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson didnt say that all, he said if he has to work until the last minute he will

we didnt want Beckford or Smith, St Ledger said he wanted to come here and not Ipswich(Leicester now want to keep him) and we were never going to get Sharpe

the reason we haven't brought anyone else in yet is becuase we need players off the books!

Agree0 Disagree0

Either KB is being very astute in that the EUFA rulings on Income & Expenditure involving a cap on what you can spend on player wages is almost upon on us, and lets face it this should have been done years ago, or he cant tell the truth. I wil leave you all ponder that one!

Agree0 Disagree0

Well that gave me a laugh we have nothing more than a casual interest in the players you mentioned Smith is not fit enough, St Ledger isnt good enough and Beckford is probably still on champagne wages at overspending leicester and we were interested in Billy sharp 2 seasons ago not now. We are still full of goals and may not be playing the best football we have ever played but none the less a win tonight could put us back in the playoffs ! Crap money upto 15 k per week for our top earners sounds decent to me ! Plus and importantly it means we are financially secure you muppet and one of only a dozen teams in the football league in the black ! So what your advocating is carrying say 100 million pounds of debt to try and buy our way out of the Championship your a plank mate !! MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Put yer money where yer mouth is , how much do you want to wager to back up yer point? nice positive attitude from another moaning leeds fan?

Agree0 Disagree0

Well said. Sometimes the truth hurt but Leeds under Bates and SG do not have the ambition to match the fans expectations

Goalkeeper Paul Rachubka has returned to Leeds United after coming to the end of his loan with League One side Tranmere Rovers.

Believable10 Unbelievable4

PLEASE! give it a rest he wont be playing in the first team so why keep going on.

Agree0 Disagree0

Things could get a lot worse, Grayson could actually put him back in the team, heaven forbid.... {Ed020's Note - i doubt thats ever going to happen.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Another quality signing SG. Fit in well with the other 12 players that are not fit to play first team and that we cant get rid of.
