Rumour is Boyd knocked back Ipswich because his heart was set on coming to leeds. They signed Taylor and he agreed a contract. So no reason why Boyd didn't.
Watch this space, he just might come on loan until jan, then sign on the dotted line, when funds arrive.
He probably knows there more chance of going up with the SGT and i nearly forgot.
BATES OUT, BATES OUT!!

Boyd wasnt offered improved terms second time round by Ipswich - Taylor was. ITFc brought in an ex Celtic player instead Daryl Murphy.
Thats why he stayed at Posh. However he is soon out of contract and still available to move.

Agree0 Disagree0

Id love to think this was the case but he is rumoured to be going to Ipswich on loan with a view to a Perm deal in Jan.

the sort of player LUFC should be looking at though as he is quality on his day

Agree0 Disagree0

Unless the takeover is done soon, what are we going to pay him with.....fish fingers?! if you go by what we're led to believe we havent got money for loans

Big rumour that a decision will be made on the takeover this week. Positive or negative. No one knows

Believable13 Unbelievable44

Yes nobody knows especially you

Agree0 Disagree0

I can believe this especially from what I am hearing also. This is a takeover of a medium sized business with complications. They are ER and TA ownership and our beloved Chairman. However, no takeover keeps rumbling on. Once you get into the 11th week of negotiations closure either way is upon us. There's some post on here which says 95 days. As far as I am concerned it's 70 days since the official announcement was made which means by Wednesday (tomorrow) we are in the 11th week. I'm expecting an announcement from the club or LUST by Saturday at the latest. As for which way it'll go, I still say the takeover will happen. COME ON LEEDS!!!!!

Agree0 Disagree0

We had to wait until Tuesday morning for this to appear! People "in the know" and "with sources at Elland Road" have been telling us that the takeover is imminent for months!

Agree0 Disagree0

There wont be any takeover, KB is gonna curse us til the day he pops his clogs and knowing our luck that wont be for another decade. Still, I think we have a good chance of the playoffs and from then on anything can happen.
MaltaWhite

Agree0 Disagree0

Ye ive heard on radio summat about thursday at some point there being an announcement, with regards to what i dont know but only wish its what we wanna hear.
My head says its collapse of takeover my heart disagrees !
Many of times ive followed my head and trust me it was wrong to do so, so im following my heart this time and this time feels right.
Come on Leeds and come on KB, let someone else have a go we've hone as far as we can with you.

leeds to sign derek riordan on a 1 year contract with an option of a further year. I hope to god this isnt true as he is a flop!

Lets hope so boys

Believable36 Unbelievable23

Great way for him to make another 50M in a decade's time probably half that actually as Pompey weren't as bad off as we were 8 years ago. Let's hope it's true because it will mean the takeover happens.

Agree0 Disagree0

Pompey's potential investors need to make a bid this week or the deal is off so this could mean good things for us.

Believable43 Unbelievable0

More dead wood to pay for !

Agree1 Disagree0

Might as well just pay up his contract

Agree1 Disagree0

You don't pay while there injured that's why you have to pay such high insurance on players

Agree0 Disagree0

He is contracted for another 3 years, definately not paying him off now! Terrible idea

Agree0 Disagree0

You should be more supportive of the player. Fron what I've seen of him he does not deserve to be on the transfer list.

Leeds to dign Marvell Wynne and Akos Buzacky this week!

Believable11 Unbelievable49

How many more times we are skint

Agree0 Disagree0

Just a quick one. I just wanted to say a big thank you to Leeds for all of your star midfielders.Norwich city fc thanks you all and Wishes you the best of luck for this season.

Agree1 Disagree0

Shutup you smug git I hope you go down. Your club is a joke and the only reason people are playing for you is because you are in the prem! They have no loyalty to the club or fans they just want to play there. There is no need to rub it in about you getting our players. You'll probably want Austin in January so you can have another!

Agree1 Disagree1

Just a quick one. Come back at the end of the season and thank us for our star midfielders taking you down. Best wishes to all you Norwich fans god knows you are going to need it

Agree3 Disagree0

Your still going down lad!

Yeah good one mate, 2 draws and a 5 nil humiliation, you guys are flying! you wont be laughing when you guys get relegated, we will see how loyal your Leeds players are then... the only thing that will be worse than your team will be your diabolical fan base.

The D man

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldn't say Johnson was a star midfielder! A star midfielder doesn't hit and hope. The only decent midfielder you got was Snoddy and he scuffed his first goal in at weekend.

Come back when your'e not getting stuffed 5-0

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha star midfielders ?
You mean MIDFIELDER ?
Snodds is your best player and only he's capable of top quality CHAMPIONSHIP football you toilet !
He's confessed himself to wanting to play prem football no matter which club to boost his international chances only you divvys were daft enough to pay for him.
Enjoy you prem relegation fight and hope your MIDFIELDER(S) do they're best to relegate you !!

Does anyone think its odd they named the triallists on the os earlier? Mot.

Believable26 Unbelievable9

I took notice of this earlier aswell...could be nothing but definately out of the ordinary.

Agree0 Disagree0

Peter poloskei-hungarian striker
Sean Myler-attacking midfielder
Both could do a job, poloskei scored for redfearns team, myler almost.
They look hungry enough along with poleon.
In my eyes worth the shot they've nothing to lose nor has warnock.
Lennon & milner made it along with howson

Agree0 Disagree0

Main part will just have been that it was live on LUTV and naming them means the commentators dont have to say 'trialist on the ball' all the time

Agree1 Disagree0

Peter poloskei has been on trial at Coventry and they didn't give him an offer.

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2012 18:29:42
potential buyers for portsmouth been told to make bids within 2 weeks. ken bates could be potential buyer and thus why takeover taking so long.

Believable10 Unbelievable37

If he was buying pompy he would not want this takeover dragging on would he donut

Agree0 Disagree0

This is going round alot apparently round Portsmouth ive just looked some of it up in their local paper and sites, they dont want him HA, any guesses why ?

Agree0 Disagree0

We didn't want him either, and in their situation I don't think they'd have much choice in the matter.

Agree0 Disagree0

If he's as corrupted as people say, then he wont be able to buy a club, will he as he'll not get through the fit and proper check.

Peter polOskei on trial with the club, playing for development squad v Wigan.
24 year old Hungarian who Coventry decided not to sign after a trial. He looked decent aerially and had good chest control etc but that's about it

Believable11 Unbelievable6

Wasnt the lad that came on for nunez also a trialist think he was called myler

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh dear oh dear COVENTRY decided not to sign him then,..what, too good for them was he?! were scraping the barrel so much we've gouged a hole in the bottom. LLHB MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Sean Myler also on trial, I am surprised NW has not had a look at Tom Soares, he played well under NW at Palace and is training with Portsmouth unattached

Agree0 Disagree0

Sean Myler? i thought it was thay David Myler who Sunderland let go?

Agree0 Disagree0

No it was Sean Myler unless the os is wrong. Think he was released by Wigan and had a trail at Blackpool

if you cant afford Leeds tickets, it doesn't make you any less of a Leeds fan than me, or any other season ticket holder. but when fans are talking about doing no shows to games, especially the games we cant afford to lose 3 points on, how can you call yourself a supporter ?!?! definition; A person who is actively interested in and wishes success for a particular sports team, how can we be succesful without your support ??

Believable41 Unbelievable12

Well said.... i live in the compost heap of england (kent) and would love to be lucky enough to live close enough to go to games whenever i choose.... but i'll still spend the effort and resources to get to ER as long as theres 11 men with leeds badges on their chests when i get there...

Agree0 Disagree0

True and well said but i think its got to the point where were all thinking whats the point when all were doing is putting money in bates pocket! and nothing gets spent on players, weve made load of money the past few years at this level selling out best players and seen nothing! the blokes a joke were paying premiership prices to watch championship games, he needs to realise its the fans that make the club what it is and not him. #pens4ken

Tell this to bates, he's the one not supporting a team.
BATES PUT UP OR F=CK OFF!!
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

Correct ! By boycotting the game it doesn't hit Ken in the Wallet. His wallet is safe in a monaco bank. The people who will struggle will be the backroom staff, the accountants, the project managers etc. When the cash flow of the club slows or drys up the only parts that suffer are the staff and the clubs ability to develop and progress. Kens accounts don't even shudder. It would be far more effective if 30k showed up everyweek and chanted him out of the club. A show of mass solidarity is what is needed not a misplaced attack on Ken Bates' monaco mastercard !

The latest news coming from ER is that Hesky will be joining on a 1 year contract

Believable9 Unbelievable57

As what? Groundsman?

Agree0 Disagree0

Let's hope not. The guy can't stand on his own two feet for more than three or fours strides at a time. Once Somma comes back we're sorted for forwards.

Agree0 Disagree0

The rumour I heard (And it is a rumour) is that Jermaine Beckford is still hoping to come back to Leeds if a deal can be struck between the 2 clubs and in the short term Grayson see's Heskey as an ideal replacement for Rhodes, until Huddersfield's chairman has funds avaiable

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi, please no, someone who is such a cheat he got a true gentleman (the Chief) sent off is not the kind of player i want to see in Leeds colours.

Agree0 Disagree0

Heskey hoping liverpool come in for him

Agree0 Disagree0

Just what we need a really mobile fast striker!!!!!!! billy barn door just vacated the no. 9 shirt and u think this lump of wood is next to sign. cant think that even papa smurf would wish him on us

Agree2 Disagree0

Barn Door scored at the weekend! If I remember, someone posted a few weeks ago predicting he would get a glut of goals this season!

LR, Northants

Agree0 Disagree0

What is this news that comes out of ER? where you told it, did come in a press release, by loud hailer from a passing automobile?

Its all just b*******, admit it.

James McFadden to sign on a 1 year deal on Wednesday, he was spotted at Thorpe Arch this morning by a friend of mine. There all saying he cant wait to sign and begin playing regular football again. He will, in my opinion give us more options on the left side of midfield where we've felt the loss of Snodders.

Believable22 Unbelievable23

Could be a decent signing

Agree0 Disagree0

Snodgrass played on the right but still a good signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thought he'd gone to boro?

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't know much about him - I am only young- but surely better than varney

Agree0 Disagree0

Even though Snoddy played on the right?

Agree0 Disagree0

Yet another player spotted at t.a. ho hum. at least it stops me thinkin of bates smokescreen takeover! keep them comin lads

Agree0 Disagree0

Hi, yes good call, apart from the fact that they are two different types of players who play in different positions, he would be a perfect fit for Snodgrass.
Have you ever seen either of them play?

Agree0 Disagree0

James McFadden was training with Motherwell this morning, I saw him and spoke to him, so this is a made up story. He hopes to have a deal soon and it will not be with Motherwell, however I doubt it will be with Leeds either.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Sep 2012 08:28:39
Everyone seems to see some player at Thorpe arch. Even tho it's in the middle of nowhere and the building and pitches are down a cup de sac a fields distance away from the road with a big gate. Course your mate saw him.

Takeover talks ongoing,I want to make sure the club is left in good hands K B says. If stories are to be believed then he is saying one thing and doing the other. The squad has no depth and NW is working with one hand tied behind his back.The club/fans deserve better from KB and board.

Believable39 Unbelievable5

Transfer window closed and no "icings on the cake".

This to me can only mean two things:

1. Warnock was told he had funds available until Bates then told him he wouldn't give him any which would mean that Warnock is a "Yes Man" and accepted rather than speak out and tell us the fans that Bates has been leading him on.

OR

2. Warncok never intended to sign any "icings on the cake" and has lied to us fans from the get go to get us on his side to make it look like he had huge plans for the club.

Personally I think it's number 2. Warnock has always back tracked and talked complete utter rubbish at any club he's ever been with he just says what he thinks the fans of the club he's managing at the time want to hear.

J
B
M

Believable12 Unbelievable36

It can mean a lot more than two things.

Agree0 Disagree0

Who knows and who cares. We are on 7 points, 2 off the lead. Team is playing well at the moment so let's get behind Warnock and our team. With our support we can make a real push this year !

Agree0 Disagree0

Hows it his fault, when Warnock exspected a takeover to go through but didn't. He told us one minute he was told he would be able to get some quality in, then he was told he could not because the takeover hadn't gone through.
Think about lad. He can only tell us what he knows at the time. He also has been given the run around by Bates. So if your looking for who to blame, then look no further than Mr Bates, he's a right pi== taker.
I SAY BATES OUT, BATES OUT!!
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

Clearly you are not a Leeds fan.....go away and concentrate on your own teams performance instead of trying to wind up real Leeds fans.
It amazes me how many other clubs fans cannot stay away from Leeds united forums......seems your all afraid of when we get back and yes it will be soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

...or, takeover talks have gone on longer than intended with negotiations at a stage whereby KB doesn't want to use his own money for players and the new "owners" are waiting until the deal is done before they splash the cash. Just thought there were more than 2 alternatives, that's all.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just what I posted the other day. You're not a manager of a club without knowing what is going on. Remember his comments when we were relegated - it made his day. KB hasn't been too keen either 1. after the damage caused by Leeds fans at Chelsea 2. the regular abuse he gets from the fans.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's so obviously number 1. Bates lies deceives and does not wear a halo.

Agree0 Disagree0

You are one of the worst type of Leeds fans that are not needed. I sit and read your posts "JBM" which receive a vast amount of Disagrees and are overall depressing. The Fans as always have been immense this year and the Team have played Wolves, Blackburn, Blackpool and Peterborough and managed to get 2 wins a draw and a loss which i don't think is too shabby with regards to the calibre of the opposition, excluding Peterborough. Instead of sitting there trolling be optimistic for a change, we have a great manager, battling team and the best fans in the country. MOT

TeejLUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont be daft. gfh capital who funded warnocks signings earlier on didnt give him anymore money until deal was finalised. bates has not given him anything and is holding up the process by not signing. in NW we trust

Agree0 Disagree0

Would think the more likely would be that 1. we have just missed out on a few due to fees or wages (remember we where linked with Rhodes but i certainly wouldn't have valued him that highly) too many clubs spending above their means for us to compete, we will see them on their fall back down when the creditors call the debts in as its the mistake our board and pompeys made in the not so distant past.
or 2. he is chasing free agents or loans to finish the team, neither of which had to be completed by the deadline so gives us a little more negotiation time.

Gummie

Agree0 Disagree0

This is a forum for Leeds united fans which you clearly are not. NW wouldn't have taken the job without assurances that he could add quality to last years squad, and when smurfs promises turned out to be lies he could have walked (which he nearly did) but he stayed and I for one am glad he did. The team and the manager are doing the best they can. Get behind them or go somewhere else. MOT IrishWhite

03 Sep 2012 23:06:28
You're clearly not a supporter or if you are then you need to give your head a good shake.

What exactl do you want warnock to do? Slag off bates and get the sack or shut up and get on with it. He certainly doesn't owe you an explanation

Agree0 Disagree0

Well he has in his contract if bates doesn't back him in the transfer market he can walk so my honest opinion is the he is saving his funds till January and why would bares invest so much to then sell the club doesn't make sense if the team is round a playoff place come January expect little change but if where struggling then we have the funds aswell as the takeover done and dusted

Agree0 Disagree0

03 Sep 2012 10:42:16
DONT MEAN TO BE A CYNIC. BUT GOING ON DIOUF'S COMMENTS WANTING TO BE A LEGEND BY GETTING US PROMOTED. WHY THEN HAS HE SIGNED UNTIL JANUARY AND NOY UNTIL THE END OF THE SEASON. JUST A THOUGHT.

Believable26 Unbelievable13

I think it might have to do with money available, maybe he's been told the take over will be done by then and we'll be able to improve the contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well if the takeover goes through,and hes done well,he can renegotiate his supposed 5 grand a week.

Agree0 Disagree0

Because he wants a pay rise in January.

Agree0 Disagree0

Because he was not offered the deal he wanted. He wants 2 years and was offered 1 year

Agree0 Disagree0

Probably so he can get a better deal from us after Jan,ie more per week assuming he plays well till then.
"T"

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe club only has finances to offer a short term until Jan. Diouf takes it hoping to get more in Jan. just a thought

Crmd

Agree0 Disagree0

I guess that if come January we are looking good his contract to stay to the end of the season may be a better one than he has now !

Agree0 Disagree0

Because Neil only wants him until January, before assessing whether he is worth keeping beyond that. After all, he is a loose cannon

Agree0 Disagree0

Def a deal issue. He wanted 2 years am guessing he has been told to go out, keep his head down attitude wise and put in the performances and earn a longer contract. Seems like good business sense to do that for a player with a record of loosing it and who came in a little out of shape. Looked good so far though. Carries on like he has and he has my backing to get the contract he wants.
Also he turned down money to play for us, for our fans, take that as a huge compliment also it shows commitment to the cause, happy to back the lad 100% at that point.

Gummie

Agree0 Disagree0

I owe the bloke a sincere apology. I didnt want Diouf. But seeing him coaching young Sam through the Wolves game and "discussing" Peltiers defensive oversights against Blackburn and not to mention his own atitude and ability Im willing to back him 100% even if he leaves us in January. He is giving a fair days graft for a fair days pay.

Scouts are still looking at Sam Byram even though he has signed a new contract. They are still interested due to the talk of financial trouble at Leeds if the takeover/investment doesn't happen and would be looking to get him on the cheap if KB's finances are as bad as rumours say.

Believable10 Unbelievable55

Why would our finances be bad?? all the players sold.... none bought for a mass amount.! WISE UP... KEN's Wallet is packed!

Agree0 Disagree0

Absolute load of tripe! if KBs finances were that bad he would have signed the deal already!

Agree0 Disagree0

Arent we getting 125 000 from tv money for the everton cup game and dont west yorks police have to pay the club 1 million back for overpayment of policing matches. Where has this money gone?? Shouldnt both amounts be put towards loans or out of contract players as they were unexpected amounts not budgeted for. Come on ken you tight bas.ard you didnt expect this money so give it to.warnock for loans or icing on the cake.

Agree0 Disagree0

Will not go for less than 6 million.

Agree0 Disagree0

We have a 4m legal bill outstanding from the Levi case and more debt to fund the new building of the stand/casion and don't we pay a hefty rent for ER and TA?

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds are apparently in debt because of the stadium developenment. bates has apparently borrowed the money and said he will get it back by the stadium tickets in the next two years, thinking he will do it...if it does not pan out like he thinks then we are in debt and would mean selling again.

Sounds like a Huddersfield fans wishful thinking, Go back to your own boring rumour site, lemon !!

I cant believe we need a striker and Ivan Klasnic is without a club.....come on NW, get him in won't cost owt!

Believable40 Unbelievable12

'He won't cost owt' - Really? Is he gonna play for free then?

Agree0 Disagree0

He has a club Gaziantepspor.

Agree0 Disagree0

Been said before on other posts but he will want a signing on fee, for someone of his caliber this will be in the region of 100-300K. Then add on top of that his wage demands probably in excess of 20000 per month, or 240K for one year. So in short if we can't sign anyone for a transfer fee we can't afford good 'free' transfers either. Expect some dealings in the loan market to reinforce the team as we are light in some positions but no new permenant signings

Agree0 Disagree0

One of the best finishers in the game!

Agree0 Disagree0

It would cost wages, signing on fee and an agents fee not owt

Agree0 Disagree0

Ivan Klasnic has signed a one-year contract with Mainz

Problem is he was a good player at Bolton
so top flight clubs around Europe will be
