Leeds to sign Sanchez Watt on a free transfer

Believable11 Unbelievable48

Very funny, three times he's been signed now!

Agree0 Disagree1

Hope this is true especially on a freebie. And ed we doing the sun league just for fun or is there a way we can put say a couple of quid each into an account or something and have some prizes or us that to much likd hard work to sort, just an idea to keep it interesting, we do that st work and it's good {Ed013's Note - Fun mate}

Agree0 Disagree1

You Watt? You Watt? You Watt, you Watt, you Watt? No chance!

Agree2 Disagree0

Why I ask, never delivered then went on loan to Crawley and did nothing there. Will end up in Non League like thousands of others that are currently in so called top club football academy sides. When they get to 17 the likes of Arsene Whinger go out and buy the ready made article, so why do they bother with Academies ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Does he still fall over for no reason? If yes, no thanks.

Agree0 Disagree0

Barely good enough in League 1, simply won't cut it a level up.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh deep joy

Peltier, Craig Mackail-Smith & Templeton all to sign by Tuesday!

Believable23 Unbelievable49

Lol... Peltier yes ! Others no

Agree1 Disagree0

Getting ahead of yourself i think.

peltier by end of next week only imo.

Agree1 Disagree1

Change Michael smith to Beckford and the other two signings and I would be delighted.

Agree1 Disagree1

Whos micheal, and forget about beckford , hes not coming back

Agree1 Disagree0

Peltier and cms definitley, templeton possibly

Agree2 Disagree0

03 Aug 2012 16:41:53
been talking to a mate who's been doing some work at ER ready for new season (PAINTER AND DECORATOR) and he said one of the coaching staff said CMS was second choice to beckford but beckfords wages were in the stratosphere compared with CMS

Believable18 Unbelievable26

Coaching staff are based at TA not ER usual made up nonsence!

Agree1 Disagree0

Paynters new job - painter and decorator

Agree2 Disagree0

Painter a crap striker not sure of decorators best position

Agree0 Disagree0

I was at the club shop the other day & fancied a burger so went over to McD's the litter picker there was telling me that the bus driver who brought him to work told him that his cousin is a taxi driver who took NW to ER the other day (Neil's car was being serviced) and it looks like we might be getting Rooney & Messi before the Wolves game!!

The only true thing here is I did get a burger but even that was from Burger King when I went to PC World.

Let's keep it real folks PLEASE

Poyet confirmed CMS staying at Brighton I for one am glad good player but to similar to Rosco... Back to drawing board for Colin

Believable22 Unbelievable15

Where is this? Cos sky sports are normally right.

Agree0 Disagree0

Poyet saying he is staying does'nt mean much tbh mate.

Agree0 Disagree0

Neil Warnock said that Robert Snodgrass was staying ... at least until January. Bye, bye Robert.

JDC

Agree0 Disagree0

Similar to Rosco ? CMS is like Keogh but with a genuine eye for goal

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2012 16:26:34
Rachubka, Kisnorbo, Bromby, Nunez, Paynter, Somma, all seems all moving on to other clubs

Believable16 Unbelievable36

Kisnorbo and somma will be given a chance to prove fitness as they are both injured, as will bromby. Just cos they don't have a squad number yet doesn't mean they are moving on bud. Personally think somma and bromby will be kept on, can't see it for paddy unfortunately, if that's the case definatly has best of wishes from me for the future, was great in his prime and a good chap!

Charlie brown MOT

Agree2 Disagree0

Somma & Bromby are injured

Agree1 Disagree0

Somma won't be going anywhere perm.
Loan maybe !

Agree1 Disagree0

I thought Somma had signed a new deal or Warnock had offered him one.

Agree1 Disagree0

Somma not going anywhere

Agree2 Disagree0

Kisnorbo has no reason to move and could be warnocks version of danny s***tu

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock has already said he has heard good things about Somma so think he would be very reluctant to let go once fit

Agree2 Disagree0

What the deuce is Lees being given no.4?? Should be 6. The tough tackling defensive midfielder usually gets 4.

Believable16 Unbelievable22

I thought that as well, strange. So it follows that the number 6 ( usually the centre back) will be an attacking midfield player. Also like the use of 'what the deuce!'.

Agree0 Disagree0

What does it matter. Main striker gets 9. Ross loves 44 which is usually a player who never gets a look in or a kid who's getting a run out. It doesn't matter than much. Maybe leesy wanted

Cmrd

Agree3 Disagree1

Lees got 4 because it's Billy's number, as a Leeds fan you should know any player who loves the club wants the no. 4

Agree2 Disagree0

Does it really matter what number they get? number 9 is supposed to be the goal scorer and was that not paynters number the past 2 years!!

Agree2 Disagree0

Why are some players not on the list at all such as somma, bromby?

Agree0 Disagree0

You mean lees the centre back, who has never played in midfield before?

Agree0 Disagree0

Bruce wasnt a defensive mid

Agree1 Disagree0

Ross is 44, so does that mean he thinks he is twice the player Billy was? Or is he just fatter
EXCroggywhite, mot

still wanna keep him tho :)

Agree0 Disagree0

Its just a number

Agree1 Disagree1

Injured players not been registered as unsure weather they will feature this season . maybe only able to register 25 this season or something might be giving younger players a chance and need some squad numbers for them

Agree0 Disagree0

He rejected a lot of other clubs and has stayed with Leeds, Leeds is the only clue he has ever played for!

Agree1 Disagree0

Looks like connolly is staying aswell, thought he was transfer listed?

Agree0 Disagree0

Its a number for god sake

Agree0 Disagree0

Manager's choice ... things needed a shake-up and he's done that so why not change all the suspicion surrounding numbers ... move on!

JDC

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't understand this.. since when has he been a defensive midfielder? He's a centre back.

Agree0 Disagree0

It may just be a number but as posters have stated it is Billy's number and has a significance. If the lad is Leeds through and through, which I believe he is let him have the honour. When I played amateur football, I insisted on the no. 4 shirt and it gave me an extra edge and incentive to play well on account of our late friend.

Agree0 Disagree0

Bolton loaning all these young prem players why do we never seem to be in for these up and coming players.?

Sunny mot

Believable13 Unbelievable13

It could be because their wages may be too high, or simply because NW doesn't want loanee's, who have no real commitment for the club. it's clear that he wants players who will wear the badge with pride and his heart on his sleeve.

-J- MOT!

Agree2 Disagree0

What like Sanchez Watt, Andros Townsend, Fabian Delph, Adam Smith, Barry Bannon, Eric Lichaj, Sam Vokes, Hogan Ephraim etc., etc......

Agree2 Disagree0

Hmm. Last season: Adam Smith & Townsend (Spurs) Delph (Villa). 3 that spring to mind (sure there was more...), and all 3 contributed na da, zilch. Season before: Livermore, Bannan, Lichaj. All good PL prospects. Contribution ?

Agree2 Disagree0

What do you call bannan, albrighton, lichaj, watt, livermore, etc? if they're not up and coming young prem stars then i dont know what is

Agree1 Disagree0

Because warnock has said he doesn't like loans

Agree2 Disagree0

Because loanies are pointless giving prem teams theres youths experience na thanks we should only sighn loanes when we desprate with injuries

Agree2 Disagree0

Pleased Neil Warnock's got more sense than that ... and I thought all Leeds fans had learned the lesson from Simon Grayson ... carry on Mr. Warnock, hopefully without loanees.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2012 14:50:53
Christoph Berra has been made available, worth a go?

Believable10 Unbelievable15

03 Aug 2012 14:38:23
George Boyd/Templeton, Craig Mckail Smith or DJ Campbell, Cranie and Peltier would be great additions!

Believable25 Unbelievable5

GB- no
DT- possible
CMS- no
DJC- possible
LP- yes

Alrite Leeds am a Gers boy just wondering on this Elliot Kaddie any good......good luck in the championship would love to see you's in the prem again.
WeeJRFC................

Believable17 Unbelievable3

Didnt see much of him to be honest mate though everyone rated him, must be good to have been picked up by Barca as a 16 year old. Man United (or 'scum' as we prefer to refer them as) were in for him at one point too, so could well be what you need to help get your club back up to where they belong. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

You should tell the SFA to do one and come and join us down here

Agree0 Disagree0

Cheers mate! Won't be a premiership in Scotland this year without the Gers.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Kebbie? Nope just pace

Agree0 Disagree0

Sure your not on about elliott kebbie?

Agree0 Disagree0

Never heard of him but Elliott Kebbie is supposed be a good player

Agree0 Disagree0

Up the Gers. So sorry about the demotion but i'm sure they'll be back where they belong.

Agree0 Disagree0

He went to Spain to live with his mum and went on trial with Barcelona but was told no by them so he signed a contract with athletico madrid

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would rangers signed elliot keddie better off signing Alex Keddie and would his wages are more realistic for the the scottish third division part time footballers on 40 to 60 a week rangers will be bankrupt again if there not careful

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2012 13:54:12
Finally some much needed pace in the Leeds squad :) Peltier will be a welcome addition at ER.
Playing behind a new winger (Boyd, Templeton/Jarvis) and CMS- we then have a v good squad
RyanMOT

Believable17 Unbelievable3

Your missing one thing ! non of these players have actually signed yet , but hopefully yes

Agree0 Disagree0

Jarvis? you having a laugh? fulham just had a 10mil offer turned down by wolves

Agree0 Disagree0

He wont be playing behind any new winger other than varney

Agree0 Disagree0

Jarvis who teams are willing to pay 8 million for ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Jarvis? u in a dreamworld? id love him to come bit we wouldnt b able to afford his wages

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2012 13:26:08
who would we rather sign beckford or craig mackail smith??

beckford : believable
craig mackail smith : unbelievable

Believable60 Unbelievable6

I think CMS is more believable kid, id take becks back in a heartbeat, cant see it happening though MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Beckford for his goals.
CMS for work rate.

Agree0 Disagree1

With ten goals last season and becks getting 15 with less appearances you'd have to choose becks, but CMS'S assists make it little difference

Agree0 Disagree0

Beckford has been a flop since leaving leeds. league 1 player. time to move on from beckford. craig mackail smith would be better in what warnock has purchased

Agree1 Disagree0

Machail smith any day. Beckford behaved like a spoilt little girl afew times when getting subbed the last time ! Thinks hes better than he actually is, rather have Ricketts back

Agree1 Disagree0

Ricketts? Get your head out of somebody elses butt! FFS I'd rather Norman Wisdom than Ricketts!

Beckford all day long..

Agree0 Disagree0

Boring, boring, boring ... it's long past the time to let the Beckford saga be consigned to history ... wake up people, stop dreaming ... or having nightmares depending on your point of view. Oh, in case you're interested, mine's a nightmare.

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd rather sign Maynard than either of them

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2012 13:25:27
So the Squad numbers are out;

Who'll fill the #2 shirt, Peltier?

And as someone else has already asked where is Davide Somma?

Believable9 Unbelievable3

No Bromby or Kisnorbo either - but Connolly is in?

Agree0 Disagree0

Still not recovered from a knee injury i believe

Agree0 Disagree0

Where is somma, kisnorbo, bromby, all the youngsters e.g charlie taylor, turner twins!

Agree0 Disagree0

Somma is injured and nw hasn't seen him play....same with kisnorbo and bromby

Agree0 Disagree0

Or Paddy Kisnorbo, or Leigh Bromby

Agree0 Disagree0

None of the injured lads have numbers yet. funny how connolly has a shirt number assigned but the others on the transfer list do not.

Agree0 Disagree0

Somma was almost back a month ago but had a set back with his injury so probably not back for a few month if not christmas time as it will take time to get fully fit and i don't think warnock will risk him

Agree0 Disagree0

Injured or not somma like the others,still should have squad numbers,doen't look good for those left out,would be gutted if somma left,plenty of teams would snap him up.

Agree0 Disagree0

If Somma comes back as good as he was then we can discard talk of Beckford, CMS etc. I also feel Kisnorbo still has a lot to offer and Bromby will be a good squad player. Incidentally, it is good to see LUFC standing by the lad after his horrible injury.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2012 13:09:07
Austin to miss Preston game, on O.S. now.

What is he doing he needs to get here and play. Can i just say, Rudi, a message to you Rudi......stop your messing around, time to think of the future.

Believable9 Unbelievable27

Don't think it's his fault he has to have work permit and visa to sign Ian sure he wants to get here quicker as well

Agree0 Disagree0

He can't help that, they said he might be able to play on tuesday for whoever that is but he will be here.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's not his fault his work permit hasn't come through yet!!

Agree0 Disagree0

If you read it its because of paperwork! he's not messing around...jeez some people!

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't think he has control over when his visa is issued?
Also he has been playing for brann this season already , they're half way through their season , so he will be match fit

Agree0 Disagree0

Austins got his work permit, he's now waiting for his entrance visa, which takes about a week to finalise.

Agree0 Disagree0

He is not messing around Visa's take time and he has to get 2. work permit and travel permit . Hes already signed he will be here as soon as he can , lets not forget he pushed to come to leeds so im pretty sure he is not having an extended holiday in jamaca. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

He can't help it mate, its sorting out the Visa and all the other legalities it takes to work in this country as a foreign national.

Agree1 Disagree0

What are you talking about you person he cant play until the paperwork is finalised, he is still in jamaica putting the final touches to it now.

So stop making out like he is messing about.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes sorting his work permit, what are you banging on about?!?!

Agree0 Disagree0

How is he messing around? He is in Jamaica getting paperwork that he needs to complete the move and incase u haven't noticed it's not exactly just round the corner!

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh yeah.............nice one

Very witty!

Keith Traecy to replace Robert Snodgrass with a £1.25 bid ready to test Burnley

This is a rumour from a work collegue over in Blackburn - he talks aload of crap, but this has been kicked about a few times so thought i would post it

Woody LUFC

Believable8 Unbelievable34

He isnt worth that much i mean he couldnt even get in the burnley team last season and that says it all really we need to be aiming higher than him

Agree0 Disagree0

He must talk carp cos no player costs 1.25, not even barndoor

Agree0 Disagree0

We don't want a preston reject

Agree0 Disagree0

1.25 is very cheap:-)

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2012 12:14:53
Looks like Pelts is a done deal,
Seen that Hamill is available, i'd be ecstatic if we signdd either him Boyd or Templeton for the wing, kept McCormack with him signing a long deal and getting the captaincy and signing Mackail-Smith, Campbell or Becks

LUFC PREM 2012/13

JackTheWhite

Believable36 Unbelievable5

You do realise we ill be in the championship during 2012/13 season!

Jamie.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wouldn't give McCormack the captaincy, he isn't enough of a team player and I'd leave him free to concentrate on scoring goals. Think more likely to be Pearce or maybe Green if he plans to start him every game?

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do people think we are signing a winger when we have these that can play there

rogers
White
Mccormack
varney
thompson
pugh

Agree0 Disagree1

All good calls (maybe except DJ) -like your thinking! Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

I meant to say prem 2013/14 :), think it might be a good point about just leaving McCormack to concentrate on scoring, Thompson is a CM, McCormack doesn't like going on the wing and Pugh contributes absolutely nothing to the team and is an absolute waste of wages. So that is Rogers, White and Varney so I would say with White being new to the position, Rogers with barely any experience in the League and Varney being more of a central player, we definitely need another top quality winger.

JackTheWhite

Agree1 Disagree0

03 Aug 2012 11:49:17
Adam Hamill been made available by Wolves could be a good signing if he's not too expensive

Believable26 Unbelievable6

Just seen new squad numbers,where is Somma's squad number

Agree0 Disagree0

No Paddy Kisnorbo either.
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

Good question dude, never noticed it myself but I see the number 9 is spare let's hope NW signs a good one.

Sy BsE Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Somma number 27 according to OS

Agree0 Disagree0

He'll have one, but Warnock has named the minimum amount possible with 18, then we'll add to it when people come back form injury and as they are needed

Agree0 Disagree0

And why has CONNOLLY got a number, I thought he was on his way.

Lee Barnard has been made available by Southampton. He would do a job for us

Agree0 Disagree0

Good player is hammill, young, hard working, and can score goals

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Aug 2012 11:24:31
leeds are set to sign lee peltier before tomorrow, thought to be around 500k, leeds are moving closer to getting CMS reportedly for around about 1.5mill , as he doesnt fit brightons play. beckford has been rulled out, as has maynard ect. george boyd, and templeton will be in talks next week

Believable23 Unbelievable11

If we got those four. we would be great

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally agree -that would be a promotion potential line-up! Chapel A

Leicester City defender Lee Peltier is undergoing a medical at Leeds United.

Leeds have been chasing Peltier all summer and they have now agreed a fee with Leicester for the former Liverpool youngster.

Peltier joined Leicester from Huddersfield Town last summer, but it is understood he no longer features in manager Nigel Pearson's plans.

Whites boss Neil Warnock has confirmed his interest in Peltier as he looks to bolster his defensive options ahead of the new season.

Huddersfield have also been linked with a move to re-sign Peltier, but it appears Leeds are in pole position to land the 25-year-old.

Peltier is set to hold talks with Leeds and Warnock will be hoping to tie up the deal as he continues his rebuilding plans at Elland Road.

Believable23 Unbelievable2

Seeing a lot of votes for believable on this. is there a source to this? sounds like an article copy and pasted?

DJ Campbell transfer listed and is set to sign for Leeds United within the next couple of days. Transfer is worth up to £1m, includes promotion to the Premier League clause and a fee depending on appearances due to a previous injury.

Believable10 Unbelievable32

Will be peltier or smith i reckon more likely peltier as i think warnock wants to know if he needs 1 or 2 strikers.

Not sure who the signing could be, but i hope dj campbell, tbh i think 1m would be an absoloute bargain

matty mot

Peltier if personal terms can be agreed

Just to state that CMS cost Brighton £3 million last year and he had a good season so I find it hard to believe that they would sell him any less than that.

Believable5 Unbelievable23

He never had a great season because the way brighton play dont suite him thats why poyet would sell him.He needs the money to buy a striker who fits in more with his style so i could see us getting him for about 1.5m and maybe some bonusses what could basicly give them there money back when we promote.

Agree0 Disagree1

So you think 10 goals for 3m is good? One of our freebies would get near that!

Agree0 Disagree0

Paynter in a swap deal if we are lucky lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Carroll cost Liverpool 30m, played alright'ish last season and got in England squad and they will sell for 20m so it does happen
