I've seen a few rumours about ambrose (palace midfielder) possibly coming to leeds, don't know how realistic this is, but he is a very good player with a cracking strike on him, if he came i think our squad would be ready. But it's not that likely as he would cost over £1 million. but you never know MOT

Believable6 Unbelievable7

The rumour is 600k plus a striker to palace. mr paynter may be on his way.

Agree0 Disagree0

That would be a great deal but KB will never pay 600k and we have a real shortage of strikers who are fit

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah. SG is most probably going for another attacking mid/winger.

Agree0 Disagree0

What and kb pay 600k not a chance in hell.
needs money for top floor on hotel

Agree0 Disagree0

One of the best players in the champo imo. I would kiss ken bates if this happened (ugh) I would value him higher though about 2mill

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the other mystery signing could either be trialist Mendy, Montgomery or Quinn from Sheffield United. Possible signing of John Carew but highly doubt that. Could also be a loan or permanaent signing of Sanchez Watt.

Believable10 Unbelievable5

Where is everyone getting John Carew to Leeds from? Anyone that has any sense will have read the article properly on sky sports website clearly stating west ham and birmingham are favourites to sign him. Leeds were NOT mentioned as been interested once anywhere in the article
If anyone is of the opinion we could afford his wages they are sadly way off the mark.

Agree0 Disagree0

Anyone else you want to list in there lol, carew is signing for a championship club and he didnt mention who, so could be anyone if they said west ham AND brum then they clearly have as much idea as we do, otherwise they would jus name one team...Harry MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I Put John Carew Is A Doubtful Signing, As He Has Not Signed For Anyone Yet Also Being Favourites For A Player Does'nt Nessarily Mean They Will Be Getting Them. So There Is Possibility We Could Get Him.

Agree0 Disagree0

And The Article To Do With John Carew Just Says 'Championship Clubs' That Want Not Who

Point is I have friends who r Ipswich season ticket holders and they said o'Dea is clumsy and not that good as a defender, doesn't sound like the defender we need, so probably stick with paddy and OB, but Neva know he could turn a corner and become a different player at Leeds, thing is any mistakes at the back are not going to go unnoticed this season, goals might not come so easy this season so we need to be solid at the back, the Kasper money has not been spent only 200 grand, wages r down as more players through the squad has left than players hav come in. Still don't think we will push for premiership at all next season, I hope but either way I'll give my support

Believable7 Unbelievable7

Bessone was class at Swansea but look how he was for us - shambles...just shows how a players performance changes at the drop of a hat mate

Agree0 Disagree0

Celtic fan here think odea will surprise u
great footballer

Agree0 Disagree0

The only thing I agree with you on, is the goal threat this season, we did so well last year because we could bang them in, without Luciano, Somz and with the Donkey still in the squad we may well struggle. Ross and Snodz your time is now. MOT.

Agree0 Disagree0

For gods sake lets give Simon Grayson and Leeds United a chance - If Simon thinks this guy is who we want that is good enough for me-so stick your Ipswich friends up your arse- MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Give the guy a chance. Judge his performances in the White shirt not any other teams kits

Agree0 Disagree0

At ipswich he wasn't played in CB his prefered position he should only play LB if we desprately need him there

Agree0 Disagree0

Been a leeds fan all my life and looking to see nunez and sam showing there class this season. Grayson has proved his worth so far trust in him. And as to money spent ever heard of saving all this money (with some hope) will be towards getting a premier league squad next season MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Couldnt give two shiny s**tes how he did for Ipswich, hes a mighty white for the season an ill support no matter what.

Agree0 Disagree0

As a dunfermline and leeds fan based in scotland ... i've seen o'dea a few times and i'm confident he'll prove to be a great signing ... and he'll improve as the season goes on ... can't believe lennon can't accomodate him in the current celtic team ... ah well his loss leeds gain

Agree0 Disagree0

Sam was quality last season befor ehis injury

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 21:01:05
Whose this other signing? Because there would be no problems on mendy because he's already there If it's only one I doubt it will be one of Montgomery or Quinn because we would get both. John Carew said he's talking to a championship club and hope to have it sorted maybe before season or just after and then Grayson says before or just after. Would be quality but doubt we could afford wages, but then there's no transfer fee. Any news ed?

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Carew is off to west ham or birmingham No way on earth could we afford his wages.

Agree0 Disagree0

I would love it so much but I highly doubt it. Im surprised Mendy hasnt been signed yet as the general census is that he looked quality

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 19:10:10
The two deals by the southampton game are going to be Mendy and Montgomery and then Quinn to sign a couple of days after :)

Believable6 Unbelievable6

Think you will find it was odea and one more not odea and two more.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 20:01:57
Anyone see photo of O'Dea on Leeds Website ? Looks like he has a frog on his shoulder ?

Believable11 Unbelievable2

Thats not a frog its a leprachaun. you can bet uncle ken will keep one eye fimly fixed on him.lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Had to have a look ,well spotted.I'd rather it was a four leaved clover

Agree0 Disagree0

Quality mate Didn't notice it until o read this, but The only thing it could possibly be is a frog. Hope he still has it.

Agree0 Disagree0

That was the second signing lads, Ken had him cheap as chips

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 19:50:46
think we have pulled a master stroke in signing O'Dea
24yr old coming into his prime, sweet left foot and good at set pieces - as his goal against Rangers proved, well done SG keep the faith all fans, even Celtic fans think hes better than Loovens

MOT Woody

Believable5 Unbelievable5

If he's so good, why is he out on loan for the second season running? Master stroke? Are you Master Bates?

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 19:20:25
Come on LEEDS.. i'm sure all the real supporters posting on here are right behind the management and team,i bet all the moaners and the ones who slag off Bates DONT EVEN ATTEND THE GAMES.

Believable8 Unbelievable8

I attend the games I back Grayson 110 per cent I just don't trust Bates
MOT anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

Wrong, wrong wrong Ken. Hate Master Bates, dont rate Grayson much either, season ticket holder west stand for almost 20 years. Lets see where we are in a few months time, then we can start to judge the "quality additions" grayson has added to the squad and whether the team is headed in the right direction. Harsh facts are two new keepers "records" are no better than Higgs or Kasper, never heard of o'dea and his career history is average. Brown quite happy with, what happens when he is injured or (more likely) suspended - currently no cover at all for brown or clayton in central midfield. Sure all you "real" supporters have got plenty of answers, lets see how long it takes for your rose tinted specs to drop if things dont go the way you seem to expect.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im a real suporter but i dnt attend all the games i dnt like ken bates but i think there must be a good reason y hes doing this

Agree0 Disagree0

Let's compare this season's team to last season's. We have a better keeper, Paddy is back which is like a new signing, we have O'Dea (remains to be seen how good he is). In midfield we have Brown who is better than Kilkenny and Nunez looks twice the player that Johnson is. Add Clayton to that too. We already had lots of goals from Becchio, Gradel, Snods and Howson and I think McCormack will come good now. So all in all, we'll be better than last year. C'mon guys, get behind the boys MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Or let's see how long it takes for you to get behind the team and Grayson when we do well and you look a fool. Can't complain about any of the signins and having paddy, lees, Clayton and Nunez back from their loans will be like new signings. Behind Grayson 100% just bates seems a bit shifty with his dealings

Agree0 Disagree0

Hey Mr Bates hater, had you heard of Snodgrass or Gradel before they came to Leeds? I doubt it Have some faith ffs

Agree0 Disagree0

Home and away since 80-81 season. bates and puppet out. 31 seasons of going enough for you PAL?

Agree0 Disagree0

'Wrong, wrong, wrong'
Stuck record. Give it a rest. Season ticket holder for 20 years plus in the North Stand, not that that makes me any better than any other true fan. Call it deluded/hoodwinked/brainwashed or whatever - Leeds are my team and I always have faith. Forget all the hating KB shi_te, as far as I can see we are one of a very few clubs making any sort of profit so we are on the right footing. We all Know KB will sell for a very, very tidy profit if/when we get back to the PL so it's in his interests to do that quickly, but still keeping the balance sheet looking healthy.
How many can hold there hands up and say that they predicted top 2 at Christmas last year, and just missing out on the playoffs?
New season in 2 days, if we finish bottom I'm still Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

What are you on about you should hate ken bates it shows that you dont attend any of the games. All ture fans hate ken bates

Agree0 Disagree0

If you're not happy, stop going. We want support at matches. Stay at home to moan

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates and grayson in Moaners,haters,whingers out Support the club as a whole, support anyone who pulls on the White shirt. {Ed025's Note - well said mate

Agree0 Disagree0

I believe in SG and Bates. Unfortunately i cant go to games anymore as i now live in New Zealand. Glory Glory Leeds United

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds fan since 1967 first game tony books man city at home,leeds born and bred,don,t like bates for obvious reasons,hope we can get promotion don,t rate the team that highly though lacks pace overall,yeah and leave off the moaners routine gets on me wick.

Agree0 Disagree0

Must admit Leeds have done themselves absolutely no favours at all this summer with the shambolic way they have gone about things but equally the morons on here that slag bates, grayson and just about every player going before a ball has been kicked do my head in. bates shows no ambition apparently but we've turned down substantial bids from premiership clubs for our best players, how is that not showing us his ambition? Grayson has said his best business has been keeping all the players he wanted to keep and with the addition of kisnorbo coming back from injury and clayton and Nunez looking ready to make the step up I honestly think the hysteria from the "fans" this summer has been completely over the top and mostly unjustified {Ed025's Note - well said mate..

Agree0 Disagree0

Unless you're 10 years old its possible to love your club, and not be happy with an aspect of it because you want the best.

Ken Bates bought the club, saw us fall into the third tier for the first time in the our history, took us into administration, screwed lots of local businesses in the process, is likely to see us investigated due to his shady dealings (again), tried to shaft the supporters club, has failed to be able to keep players, failed to spend the many millions of income he receives on strengthening the team, slagged off our players in the press, made enemies of the media, came out with various bullsh*t comments over the summer, and for the privelege of all that he charges us Premier League prices.

Now, oddly enough because I want the best for the club I'm not too happy with that. If you are, fine but please show the brain power that can see wanting better for the club doesn't make you disloyal. Not in the grown up world.

For the record...got my first season ticket back in 1987.

Agree0 Disagree0

So if you don't go to the games your not a 'true' fan?
I live in australia, have never seen then mighty whites play live, yet i wake up at 3am every time leeds are on tv, even when they were playing in league 1. But i guess i haven't been to elland road so i'm not a true fan?
LOL
But having said that i wish people would just trust grayson, you should support the club because you love the club, not because of a certain player or 2 or who the manager can get in.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well said that Australian fan - I know for one would struggle to get up at 3am to watch the whites - cant even get up for work at 7pm
MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates is hated thoughout football, perhaps more at Leeds than any other club, the majority of Leeds fans would not care if he left this world tonight, that's why there is so much anger.

Agree0 Disagree0

Muppet....as if ST holders are all KB's cheerleaders

Agree0 Disagree0

So if you don't go to the games your not a 'true' fan?

yet another load of b******s.Giles Barnes has signed for Doncaster, So just how attractive is Leeds for young players ? any thoughts

Believable5 Unbelievable3

If the only club interested in Giles Barnes was Doncaster then he is nowhere near good enough for Leeds.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds were NEVER interested in giles barnes It was all paper talk you must believe everything you read in newspapers as gospel

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets be honest mate he's not worth loosing sleep over is he? the fact that a p*ss pot club like Donny would only offer him a 6month deal because of injury speaks for itself for me. better off without him - thats of course if the rumours were even true about us being linked?

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds were never after him an donny have give him a 6 month contract probavly due to the fact hes too injury prone

Hope the lad turns out good, but Celtic are loaning him out for the second season running and they are pure pants. MOT.

04 Aug 2011 17:51:44
Hi a Celtic fan here , I think if ODea is playing with confidence you have signed a very good player . I would have liked us to keep him . He is much better than Loovens and Mastorovic whom we have kept . Hope he does well with you as he is a good lad .

Believable5 Unbelievable1

According to the Independent we have the most expensive programme in all 4 divisions

Agree0 Disagree0

We charge more than any other 92 football teams, but still the money helps bates and his slippers

Agree0 Disagree0

Probably costs 4 cos it takes 20 people to get down Master Bates rants lol (I dont hate him By the way. I think he will get us back into the premier league and then sell us for a tidy sum to so rich billionare so heres hoping)

Believable6 Unbelievable1

Yep. Saw it and that's exactly what Simon said.

Agree0 Disagree0

On Yorkshire Radio just now (17:30) he was saying how he was pleased with gettin Darren O'Dea on season long so no silly call back clauses like others are settling for

Shows SG IS concentrating on building something good :)

Also said he was waiting for a call back which he hoped would see another deal finalised before weekend.

Leeds TID

Agree0 Disagree0

This is exactly what SG said..We're in a good position," he told Sky Sports News.

"There's one or two new signings on the horizon which are going to make us better and stronger.

"I've said all along that keeping our best players was our biggest intention, by keeping Snodgrass and Gradel.

"That's been the most important thing for me that we've been able to do. I'm obviously delighted with the acquisitions as well.

"There didn't need major work on the team that finished the season last year. We'll definitely have one (by the weekend).

"We're close to doing a deal at this moment in time, it just needs to be signed, sealed and delivered.

"Hopefully there may be another one, but we'll have to wait and see on that one."

Agree0 Disagree0

O'dea confirmed for a season long loan, just read some of the posts on here from some so called fans, why are some people berating this guy befor the ink has even dried.....? some people just dont get what a SUPPORTER means
we are leeds, we march on together, through ups and downs, and that goes for the players we sign too.... give them a chance.
leeds4life

Believable10 Unbelievable2

Thats simple mate some people would slag of the signing grayson and bates if they went and bought messi. they just want to get behind the team

Agree0 Disagree0

Point is I have friends who r Ipswich season ticket holders and they said o'Dea is clumsy and not that good as a defender, doesn't sound like the defender we need, so probably stick with paddy and OB, but Neva know he could turn a corner and become a different player at Leeds, thing is any mistakes at the back are not going to go unnoticed this season, goals might not come so easy this season so we need to be solid at the back, the Kasper money has not been spent only 200 grand, wages r down as more players through the squad has left than players hav come in.

Agree0 Disagree0

Theres Celtic supporters on here saying he is better than what they have in front of him. Which set of supporters is right?. But Grayson has done a good job so far so about time people stopped knocking him and slagging off his signings before they have even kicked a football for the club

Agree0 Disagree0

I HAVE SUPPORTED LEEDS FOR THE PAST 42 YEARS, I LOVE THEM SO ALL YOU NEGATIVE b**tardS JUST FECK OFF WE DON'T NEED YOU, LOVE LEEDS HATE MAN UNITED....GO WITH THE PEOPLE THAT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING...........SG & KB Rule OK for the time being anyway

sheff united squad numbers on their OS show Quinn as number 28, that is the highest number on their list, Montgomery has been given number four. Does that mean we are getting Quinn but not Montgomery? MOT

Quinn's been number 28 for ages. He just likes that number I guess. You really shouldn't read that much into little things like this.

Quinn has had 28 since he has been at sheff united mate.

Agree with reply Ross kept 44 but don't think he's on his way anywhere

Quote from SS: Meanwhile, Lennon has confirmed that Irishman Darren O'Dea, who spent five months with Ipswich last term, is joining Leeds on loan.

"Darren's chances were limited and I think it's a good move for himself and Leeds," he continued.

"The year there will do him the world of good as the Championship is a very tough league."

Whoever leeds sign whatever team we put out we are better than you tractor drivers. more fans, better ground and will finish at least 6 places above you thats if you do better than everyone expects and fitting relegation as usual

Agree0 Disagree0

To be fair, ipswich were poor last season as a team, can't blame one guy, from what i have seen he is a good defender, better than bromby & bruce, so an improvment even if it is back up, ipswich getting on their high horses, you will finish WELL below leeds, poxy tin pot club MOT

Leeds are trying to hijack the deal from West Ham, and sign striker Mikael Forssell who is currently on trial at Upton Park. Wages are a stumbling block however, after being released by Hannover where he was reportedly on a 20k/week deal.

Allardyce is keen to bolster his attacking options after Ba left for NUFC, but Leeds have emerged as potential suitors for the Finnish internatioan as well.

Believable9 Unbelievable7

OS- SG just confirming interest in O'Dea. Arriving on season long loan, not half season. Has played 70 times for Celtic and worn the Capo's armband. SG calls him strong and versatile and says he knows requirements of Championship. Have to see if he is good signing. Good that he can play CB/LB. Could be available for Saints game apparently. Arriving Leeds thurs afternoon.

Believable5 Unbelievable0

He's not wanted by Celtic. Hasn't been snapped up by anyone over the summer. Wasn't selected for over half of the games at mid-table Ipswich last year and didn't appear for Reading for the last 10 weeks of his time on loan there after they conceded 7 in two games.

Still, at least he'll have almost half a day to gel with his team mates and get ready for the new season.

Typical Bates signing?

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't think he will be first choice here either but he offers cover at LB and LCB which we needed. I have read a couple of Celtic fans who think he should be in their first team they seem to think if his confidence returns he is a good player

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 13:49:42

I personaly think o'dea is being brought in to play at left bk, he's said bessone can go so got no plans 4 him so that leaves parker and white and think he might want to try white as a winger abit more, I think he will stick with paddy and obrien as 1st choice cb's with bromby, lees and bruce as back up, mayby get lichaj on loan as cover at right bk, just my thoughts on what grayson may be thinkin Tell me ur thoughts

Believable4 Unbelievable3

Agree O'dea will be lb but if we brought back Lichaj no way would he be cover. He'd be first choice rb. Way better than Connolly.

Agree0 Disagree0

O'Dea is best suited as a centre half- have never seen him play LB

Agree0 Disagree0

When I said cover I meant extra numbers, I agree lichaj is better, didnt o'dea play lb for ipswich?

I dont understand why everyone thinks we need a striker we've got Mcormack brilliant striker, Paynter hopefullt he'll have a fresh start + our Gradel Snodgrass Nunez Sam Howson all score their fair share of goals we dont need a striker MOT

Believable7 Unbelievable8

None of them can lead the line and hold the ball up. We havent the skills to play through defences consistantly. We need an out without the ball coming straight back. Its not just about scoring goals although it helps.

Agree0 Disagree0

We do need a striker paynter is not a championship player, mccormack is decent but still a 3rd choice st we have lost somma for 9 months he scored a couple of vital goals last season we need some one on loan to replace to get those goals you cant hope that your midfilders are gunna score goals all the time

Agree0 Disagree0

Course we need a strike you fool. what if any of them get injured. we need at least 1 striker which will get 20+ goals a season. We have not got one

Agree0 Disagree0

We need a proven goal scorer you tool,they are all wingers except paynter who is over weight and slow we need to sign maybe 2 strikers for me but who?

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 13:06:54
Seen O'Dea playing for Ireland and he is not the Mae West. If he can't command a place at Celtic in that league then I think we could do better.What's Kilgallon doing these days ? He seems to be surplus to requirements at Sunderland. Might be worth a punt ?

Believable5 Unbelievable5

Agree o'dea is nothing to write home about. Might be ok at left back but u would be mad to play him ahead of paddy or o'brian and I wouldn't rate him any higher than bromby or bruce either. Would rather give lees a shot tbh

Agree0 Disagree0

Have we signed lonnie donnegan and darren day for the half time entertainment or to play?

Not signed for norwich bu there sniffin round him - plus i cant see him coming to Leeds. if he leaves it will be for a prem club but i could be wrong? would be a cracking signing all the same. however lets not forget were talking about Ken'no ambition' bates having to put his hand in his pocket for this to happen mate

Monty was and still is a leeds fan said so last year

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Aug 2011 12:00:52
Personally i think we will be fine next season, maybe not get promoted but you gotta remember this league is getting tougher each year and we havent spent money like fester, west ham etc.

O'Dea - good signing, will at a bit of versatility to the back 4.
Montgomery/Quinn - i'd like to see both at leeds, monty solid and quinn good technically.

other than that i dont think anybody else will be signing (not sure if all them 3 will tbh)...however if Sheff Wed had a £200k bid turned down for Le Fondre as millers wanted 250k surely this is worth a punt for Grayson - just food for thought as even thats cheap enough for Bates i would of thought?

wat you reckon?
MOT

Believable9 Unbelievable1

I agree, Le Fondre has to be worth a go. Consitant every season. We always, for some reason, fail to realise that their is talent in the lower divisions. Norwich signed the young striker from Gillingham last season and he helped them get to the Premier league. In my opinion, after watching us week in, week out in that horrible league, we missed a trick in signing some of the players that ran us ragged. So yes Mr Grayson, im sure your aware of Le Fondre and im sure most fans would agree that he maybe better than Paynter If Paynter doesn't go to Sheff Utd then we have to get behind him all the way.
M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with your response - their are certain players in the lower leagues which are capable of stepping up to championship level but teams dont wanna take a gamle - Le Fondre is a prime example. lets not forget Becchio was unheard of before Leeds landed him, Somma was playing in USA and unheard of too, Max Gradel was knocking about at Leicester because they didnt want him and look at these players now. just need to take a chance and get them under proper management. Grayson get the lad in for cying out loud :)

Monty's Wiki looks to have been edited. Is is stating;

After a turbulent season of four managers Kevin Blackwell, Gary Speed, John Carver and Micky Adams, Sheffield United were relegated in the 2010-11 season to League 1, and with relegation confirmed Montgomery was again targeted by Leeds United.[7]. After prolonged negotiations between Leeds United and Sheffield United, Montgomery signed a three-year deal with the Elland Road club on August 4th 2011.

Optimistic editing from a Leeds fan who wants him in? Ed- what do you know about this, is the deal on? {Ed045's Note - All I know is that we have had a longstanding interest with him, if his wage demands match ours, then the signing looks on, if not then he won't come, obviously.

Believable5 Unbelievable1

Somebody edited it cos they made mistake.if he had signed the players details still has him as a Sheffield utd player.

Agree0 Disagree0

Aha, just checked his wiki and it says he is a 4 headed dog

Somehow I wouldn't trust wikipedia

O'Dea looks likes he is coming to ER, Montgomery/Quinn might be joining
him subject to wages. Leaves a
vacancy at left back, that is, if Eric
isn't returning from Villa. I saw
Bessone at Barnsley. He was the
worst player I have seen in the
football league on that performance.
What happened to him as he was
very good when at Swansea. On
another note what has happened
to Kandol? He doesn't score many
goals but puts himself aboutand, like
Becchio, he made Beckford look
good by giving him the space and
time. He is/was better than Paynter.
Even with the 20 seconds sending
off

Believable3 Unbelievable8

Kandol was a joke in a Leeds shirt next you will be wanting Enoch Showumni back
I do agree with you regarding Bessone though, he was a disgrace last season and should leave because he cant live up to the pressure of being a Leeds player.
Lets get behind the boys and cheer them all season, ups and downs. We are in a better position than we were a few years ago and the players we have lost pre-season wern't that good, so come on Leeds.
M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

That's a good point -what's happened to Kandol?

Agree0 Disagree0

Kandol left to go to a spanish side agggessss ago... do you follow the club? :S

Agree0 Disagree0

Showumni would make a great CB lool can't shoot but good in the air Never should have been a forward tbh

Agree0 Disagree0

Kandol left 2 years ago. He is in contract talks with Plymouth according to SSN

Agree0 Disagree0

While we are on, whats happened to tomas brolin?

Agree0 Disagree0

Brolin? He's due to sign for us on a season long loan from MacDonalds mate. You heard it here first

Just wanted to say Enoch scored 5 goals in 7 starts, true forward

The signing of O'DEA is a boost to the defence.
Congragulations Simon. He can play at CB or LB.
Although only on loan for whole season he cud
be make permanent if he is consistent. Still feel
Lichaj be brought in as cover for Connoly. Well
leave it to Simon. Also heard Leeds going to
bring in Monty. Another defensive midfielder.We
already have Brown. A loan striker be more
apropriate until Beechio recovers. Well I think
Leeds need another defender just for cover.
At last Simon have address the problem. Not
there yet but nearly, 1 more defender n we
can mount a challenge for the PREMIER LEAGUE.
Good job, Simon. A Leeds fan.

Believable4 Unbelievable3

I agree mate. People will see that things just take time to happen, we have til the end of the month to get more in.

Simon Grayson has released Hungarian left-back Boldizsar Bodor after a short trial. Does this mean it SG has an alternative? Is O'Dea a dead cert now?

Believable6 Unbelievable2

Ok alot of leeds fans won't be familiar with mr o'dear so i will clear things up. First I dont rate him, he is very average at best. Second he said a couple of months ago at Celtic that he wanted to leave on loan or permenant in order to get first team football. I would be very suprised if grayson offers him first team football ahead of paddy and andy and if he does he's mad. Personally this is one I actually hope we miss out on.

Agree0 Disagree0

Meanwhile, Lennon has confirmed that Irishman Darren O'Dea, who spent five months with Ipswich last term, is joining Leeds on loan.

"Darren's chances were limited and I think it's a good move for himself and Leeds, " he continued.

"The year there will do him the world of good as the Championship is a very tough league."

Lads just a thought.......

Does any think that Bates may not want to spend the money in the championship and he may well be waiting until we get promoted to then invest in PL.

That said i don't think he should be spending the money on the east stand.

In grayson we trust

Believable4 Unbelievable10

I think he said something like this in an interview or ive heard it somewhere

Probably true about Bates's idea. Either way next season I think he will sell the club

Nick Montgomery and stephen Quinn linked with leeds says the Sun for 1.2mill know its been said for a while but didnt think they would cost that much plus havent we got enough mids?

Believable6 Unbelievable6

Enough midfielders? Lost Killkenny and Johnson, and last season needed to loan Brannan and Livermore on top of them. I think I can safely say we need more midfielders.

It's the guy obsessed with Monty and Quinn again Not givin g up are you.

I hope these 2 sign, just so this guy shuts up, every day with the monty and quinn posts.

SSN Yesterday: Grayson will not panic buy.
SSN Today: Grayson Panics an takes a celtic cast off, if this guy is any good, why did Ispwich not want him back, they have beaten us to everyone else.

Believable7 Unbelievable7

The Celtic fans will disagree with you on this. Also if we signed messi you would prob say he's not good enough Give the guy a chance when/if he signs.

Agree0 Disagree0

God your right, we should have gone for Enrique of Toon, or maybe Bale at Spurs, I mean Leeds are minted aren't they? Oh wait, what's that............... keep the faith, get behind the team, put down champ manager

Agree0 Disagree0

Sounds pretty good to me. Has performed well in big games and big atmospheres, can play Left back as well as Center Half.
Now we just need to get someone who can play Right Back and we are covered at the back.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not actually having a good at the guy himself (though don't think hes going to make us any better, work with loads Celtic fans, not rated that much, they had better young squad players). More having a go at the club its self for stating one thing, doing another. By the way you still holding out for smith to come back?, face facts mid table all season long, hope I'm wrong but usually right

Agree0 Disagree0

O'dea is rubbish according to most Celtic fans. Also, he is merely a CB. He hasn't played LB in a while. Stupid, stupid signing. Are we going to line up with six CB's in the first eleven?

Agree0 Disagree0

Christ, the guy hasnt even pulled the shirt on yet fellas, give him a chance.

Im a reliable source at Leeds United and have been working in the back room staff for 2 years now. I know Grayson likes to keep quite about the transfers but i would like to confirm that we are very close to confirming a 5th signing from Oxford, a central midfielder named Bulman is talking to Leeds.

Believable1 Unbelievable16

What a 32 year old midfileder who has just signed for Crawley Town - reliable who are you Ken Bates

Agree0 Disagree0

Were all back room staff in the know on this site mate ;-)

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Year old hasn't been sounds absolutely pants and think he plays for Crawley I very much doubt Grayson will sign such cr4p after stating he will only strengthen the squad.

Agree0 Disagree0

Do you get your kicks repeatedly posting garbage

Agree0 Disagree0

Go back and play with your dolls house. gets really boring when people continue to make up such crap

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah and i work for the vatican has an opus dei agent. and they know nothing

Agree0 Disagree0

Yet another cracking rumour, Danni Bulman signed for Crawley from Oxford in December 2010. It would appear Leeds Staff talking to wrong club If this is reliable then god help us

Agree0 Disagree0

Why not provide your name? At end of day if it gets you the sack then nothing lost to Leeds as if your saying were buying players like this your clearly not the sharpest tool in the shed

Agree0 Disagree0

This is even worse than all the "16 year old wonderkid Joe Blogs who scored 35 goals in the Western Leeds Division South is due to sign"

Please SG bring in Montgomery and S Quinn two quality players who improve and also we need a good striker at the club so we can push on, hope we can bring liachj back and I hope the fans stick with Ben Parker first pre_season for two seasons he will come good I guarantee and he also loves Leeds he's a massive fan

Believable7 Unbelievable4

Sorry, but Montgomery and Quinn are run of the mill players who would add nothing to the existing squad. Do you want signings for the sake of it? I know things have been slow on the transfer front, but Rome wasn't built in a day especially on the budget Birdseye has allocated SG.
As for Ben Parker the fact he loves Leeds doesn't make him a good player. He is slow, injury prone and not up to the level we require to move the team forward. I would rather get promoted when we are strong enough to stay up and not do a Blackpool thank you. MOT.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im a big fan who loves Leeds does that mean everyone should stick by me an i should be playing, no it doesnt at the end of the day its about picking ur strongest side and ben parker isnt near it {Ed045's Note - Obviously a good amount of Football talent is needed too.. lol

03 Aug 2011 23:34:37
just want to be first one to say i told you so bout darren o dea (but also stated that paddy mc court would come aswell lol) i posted this when leeds went up to motherwell that he would be coming and am glad hes a good defender with with international expierence. just hope now s.g plays him in the middle of defence with paddy and not left back cos it would be a waste just to accomadate o brien (brutal sorry fans but he is) and those who think the deal is not done well it is and it will be made public tomorrow>all we need now is a left back, cen midfielder and another striker and its time to get underway... cmon the leeds

Believable7 Unbelievable2

Can't be that good if he can't get in celtic team, been out on loan last 2 seasons at ipswich and reading,
