Believable8 Unbelievable15

Oh yeah lok at these signings that have been announced.............not, why say things that arent true

Agree0 Disagree0

Why does no-one think that nunez should be in the starting 11 he's absolute quality

Believable22 Unbelievable6

I agree. He showed this at Scunthorpe last season grabbed a few goals from midfield in a crap team. Should play more next season

Agree0 Disagree0

Absolute Quality... What exactly are you basing that on? I'm happy for him to get a shot in pre-season but geez what has he done to deserve a guaranteed starting spot in your eyes, 3 goals in a s**te team, whist not creating much and ignoring his defensive duties isn't that amazing

Agree0 Disagree0

Think grayson will give him more of a chance this season. could be set up perfect for us to play him. get a bowyer type player in the middle with howson and have nunez playing behind a lone striker.... or play 4-3-3. nunez, new signing, howson. snodders gradel from the wings with becchio or mcormack preferably up top

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the reason he doesn't get a game is perhaps he's not physical enough? if you look at our team they all like to get a bit stuck in but nunez is small and so maybe that's why. I agree though a nifty player, maybe we'll see more of him as a late sub this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Had a chance to see Nunez at Scunny. No way is he strong enough for the Championship. Need quality not quantity....

Agree0 Disagree0

Because we would then have 7 attacking players in the side and probably concede about 100 goals next year. Leeds Utd needs a defensive midfield player and quick

Agree0 Disagree0

Why did we buy him not to give him a chance at first team football. I say give him games at the start of the season see how he does. Grayson has done a lot worse he bought Collins who played appawlingly in championship for us. We all saw that when we lost 6-4, 4-0, 5-2 etc.

Agree0 Disagree0

I WATCHED HIM TWICE AT SCUNNY LAST SEASON (BROTHER IS A SEASON TICKET HOLDER) NOT THE ANSWER FOR US AS A REGULAR STARTER

Agree0 Disagree0

Even if he is quality, he plays a similar role to howson who was captain last season so he won't be dropped to make way, probably a sub

Agree0 Disagree0

I believe he should, he is a quality player and showed that on loan at scunny last season, give him his chance i say

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes an amazing player, look at what hes done at Scunthorpe and for honduras...

Agree0 Disagree0

He's an international player. You don't have an international in your side if you're not going to play him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds 11 (hopefully)
Dudek
lichaj O'brien Kisnorbo Shorey
Snoddy Smith Howson Gradel
Becchio billy sharp

subs: rachubaka, spector, clayton, montgomery, nunez and somma :]

Believable14 Unbelievable13

Your missing McCormack and Sam fella, McCormack will be a big player next season and tbh I can't see us getting Billy Sharp 1) we don't need him and 2) Southampton were rejected from a 3mill bid so to Leeds ain't ever gunna happen

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally agree. billy sharp aint needed. we have all the strikers we need and in mccormack i think we have the championships top goal scorer for next season if fit. becchio could be on his way out which i dont think would be a disaster as he dont really have the legs. like to see a pacey attacker come in to replace any outgoing strikers mot

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 22:51:30
Expect transfers as of tomorrow Smith situation to be sorted out by Friday but more transfers will happen before that, dudek set to have talks tomorrow.

Believable9 Unbelievable13

What do you mean smith situation to be sorted out I thought it was a no go?

Agree0 Disagree0

owen hargreaves to sign for Leeds united on a pay as you play contract

Believable5 Unbelievable26

I think This could be a good signing, i know he's not played at all over the past few seasons but if we can get him in get him fit i think he'll be hungry to show what he can do. a long shot i reckon what about you ed?

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 20:25:26
Is Dudek gonna be joining Leeds united, and is there any news on transfers happening soon

Believable4 Unbelievable9

We was in talks with jerzy agents but not sure the outcome. And should be 2 new signings tomorro.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why do any Leeds fans want Dude? He was good 10 years ago. Too old now, we need a young keeper.

Agree0 Disagree0

Too old he is 38 alot keepers are better at that age van der sar was good he 40 brad fridel burnleys keeper Jensen he pretty old fulham keeper and with him been at real Madrid carnt see his skills have gone down pan

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 19:07:01
I think we should sign Jlloyd Samuel. We need a solid left back and he is out of contract. He is a premiership quality player and signing him would be a good start to repairing our leaky back four.

Believable11 Unbelievable8

We need a solid left back and jlloyd samuel is your answer?

Agree0 Disagree0

I heard we are interested in Jonathan Spector who is a right back who has been recently release from West Ham following their relegation. Eric Lichaj wants to return to the club but if we fail in signing him, i think Spector would be a good signing. And also if we Fail with Lee Bowyer, Tamir Cohen and Michael Johnson i heard Nigel Reo Coker would be willing to open talks with the club.

Leeds team 11/12
Smithies/Forster
Lichaj/Spector O'brien Kisnorbo Shorey
Snodgrass Cohen/Reo Coker/Johnson Howson Gradel
Becchio McCormack/Somma

Subs:Rachubka Bromby Bruce Clayton Paynter Parker Nunez

Believable9 Unbelievable14

The new villa manager wonts to talk to re-Coker and try re sign him to the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

Spector? Another player who couldn't help WHU stay in the Premier We want players that are proven winners not losers ffs MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Think Reo-Coker would be quality doubt Ken would pay the wages he would want tho

Agree0 Disagree0

Spector is decent, but didnt he play in midfield a lot last season...

Agree0 Disagree0

To the person who said we want winners not losers, ok you tell me what prem standard players that have won something can we sign on the 10k wage cap? Some whites fans need to wake up and smell the supermarkets own brand coffee. Lol. MOT.

Agree0 Disagree0

We should not go in for any players who have been released by teams in the Championship. If those clubs do not feel they are good enough for them in the Championship then why are they good enough for Leeds United?

Agree0 Disagree0

Hopefully we sign shorey because i think he would be a great Left bk for a championship club

Agree0 Disagree0

I've heard that Nicky Shorey and Curtis Davies to sign for Leeds over the next couple of weeks. Any truth in this Ed? {Ed015's Note - various sources have linked him}

Believable16 Unbelievable12

03 Jul 2011 11:40:11
Ed, what fantasy world do people who think us signing Given was even a possibility live in? Grayson has made it clear that this season he wants two players fighting for every position, so we should expect someone of a similar calibre to Rachubka - ie good Championship standard. And someone who willl follow instructions unlike Kasper. {Ed015's Note - Given is a possibility}

Believable6 Unbelievable9

Our really really hope our new keeper isnt similar in calibre to rachubka - we need much much better quality than that.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed we have absolutely no chance of signing Shay Given, he has turned down West Brom and is holding out for a move to Aston Villa, Bates would never pay the wages a player like Given would demand.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh great now the ed is living in the Dream world the majority of Leeds fans live in As if Given would drop down to the Championship He is world class Only second choice because Man City have the luxury of Hart as well. {Ed015's Note - not a dream world. man city dnt want to sell to PL rivals}

Agree0 Disagree0

No he isnt. would be a great signing but never going to happen in a million years. Ed: you been smoking those funny cigarettes again? {Ed015's Note - sorry i thought they was sweets :( }

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 10:52:45
Sky Sports News: Leeds are poised to make a loan move for ricardo fuller, do u think this could be possible ed? {Ed015's Note - possible}

Believable12 Unbelievable15

Good strong player who hasnt really had a lot of play with Stoke. I think he would do well with us. 'And'... not a big name who would imediately draw a lot of transfer attention.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 10:07:03
Good morning ED.....have you any news on anything at all??? No point reading the pap most folk put on here as all they seem to want to talk about is ex players & getting rid of grayson BORRRRRRING Cheers {Ed015's Note - greening is the new name doing the rounds}

Believable5 Unbelievable9

Says that ipswich are winning the race to sign free agent lee bowyer - if thats true, thats another player off our wanted list

Believable14 Unbelievable10

Heyho...
MOT folks things can only get better
ps heard a rumour smith might go to rangers so that'll be another off the list

Agree0 Disagree0

Not necessarily if lee has any sense with who may get promoted then he won't be joining Ipswich, if money is the reason then he will be.

Agree0 Disagree0

I doubt it. Mr Delph looked very uncomfortable as he hobbled into WagaMama on Greek Street this afternoon.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 09:24:31
David Jones - signed a 3 yr deal. released by wolves after failing to sign a new contract

Believable7 Unbelievable16

I've heard hes left them, he'd be a good addition

Agree0 Disagree0

He's obviously not signed a 3 year deal or it would be on the Leeds website. Use your brain.

Agree0 Disagree0

Get that off wikipedia? look again is been removed as it is not true..

Agree0 Disagree0

Manchester City goalkeeper Shay Given has turned down a move to West Bromwich Albion and is holding out for a transfer to Aston Villa. (Source: Sunday Papers)

Another target off the list

Believable18 Unbelievable8

Theres no chance Given is a target for Leeds mate. His wages are more than the Leeds squad put together

Agree0 Disagree0

Was never, ever going to happen so cant really be classed as a target. We could also say that we missed out on ronaldo as he has decided to stay at real Madrid...

Agree0 Disagree0

Has anyone from the club ever said he was a target? The answer is NO Stop taking everything you see in the newspapers on gossip sites as gospel.

Agree0 Disagree0

It would have only been possible as a year long loan deal but I think Given wants to secure his future in the premiership with a permanent move away from City, and of course that was never on the cards at Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Was he ever really a serious target? probz too expensive in my eyes just my opinion though

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Jul 2011 08:11:16
heard from a reliable source that if villa get if villa get scott parker then we might get delph on-loan for 6-months

Believable9 Unbelievable17

It's about time people stopped rattling on about ex players coming back to the club, it's getting quite boring now

Agree0 Disagree0

Ex player or not, he still would be great for the team......right?

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't want him to come back, he made his choice to walk away, let him stew

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm a good friend of fabs he was back up in Bradford the other week to buy another pad in Leeds. I keep nagging him to come back on loan lol he just says he wants 1 good season at villa before be plays else where

Agree0 Disagree0

Any news about new kit release date ed ? {Ed015's Note - not yet, Andy is letting me down!}

Believable0 Unbelievable8

Hi Ed, Andy was not in club shop today, but was speaking to one of the staff members and he said it is all sorted, shirt out for Newcastle friendly It is NOT skybet that has been doing the rounds, he wouldn't say what it is but it is NOT a drink or betting company. {Ed015's Note - i already know}

Agree0 Disagree0

Who is it ed, got a clue?

I knew it would be revealed at the newcastle friendly, Cpt birdseye wouldnt miss that opportunity {Ed015's Note - crnt tell you, Andy has my CV for a job iv applied for, ild like it to stay that way lol}

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2011 20:18:39
ed thought our main problem in defence last season was our full backs we got court out 2 much 2 far up the pitch wich aloud other teams wingers to get behind them and our centre backs had more crosses to deal with, so in my view we need to change the way we play or get new full backs, and we need 2 centre midfielders to compliment howsen and nunez, and a top class keeper who will command his area even though i liked schmicheal he didnt command his area

Believable10 Unbelievable1

Yes the problem was getting caught out and yes as you say schmiechel did not command his are as when you thinking about it he nev er told his defenders about runners coming in when those wingers did break.

Agree0 Disagree0

Where are all the rumours of a buy out comeing from

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2011 20:04:53
Just been talking to a very reliable source in our local, can't say who because he will get in trouble but he is a well known commentator He says gradel and snodgrass have signed deals to move away from the club( he wouldn't say where too) he also reckons bates is about to be bought out and Zola is lined up for managers job I hope this isn't true This is complite truth I have no need to lie

Believable9 Unbelievable23

Ok so do you know anything about interest in Alan Smith then?

Agree0 Disagree0

Wot utter rubbish ... Why waste yours and everybody elses time typing out complete waffle

Agree0 Disagree0

Is this lad a sheffield fan winding you up? lol

Agree0 Disagree0

How can anyone believe this, no names. How would a commentator be in the know? If you want to stir the s**t, try and at least invent something that sounds believable. Did someone call this guy a moran?

Agree0 Disagree0

BullS***. SG confirmed yesterday that he fully expects the existing players to remain at the club, other than Grella. He confirmed that conversations have been had with Snodgrass and Gradel and both are happy to stay. Leeds have received just a single bid, been the 3.5m for Snodgrass from Norwich. The rest is pure media speculation

Agree0 Disagree0

Gradel and snodgrass are both under contract so can't just sign up for another club and the idea of zola as manager is laughable. grow up

Agree0 Disagree0

Complite truth...no need to lie ....'my honour'. The way the guy writes simply illustrates the level of understanding and intelligence. Complete BS

Agree0 Disagree0
