If Leeds sign lonergan I'll give every Leeds fan £1

Believable23 Unbelievable11

Ed, can we get this guy's address please? Worth a shot for a quid. :0)

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes do we contact you for our 1 or are you gonna put this jokers address up? Surprised you put the original post up to be honest.

Agree0 Disagree0

I want us to sign Lonergan just to see this guy honour this

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed015's Note - this is legally binding all fans please send me your address and prefered payment method for recieving your 1 when Lonergan signs. {Ed015's Note - nice try........}

Agree0 Disagree0

You can give my quid to Ken BAtes, it's where the rest of my money seems to go

i reckon we need 1 keeper a left back and 2 mids thhen we will be sound look at the players that didnt get a chance last year but will this year
tom lees great young center half clayton good midifeld will be given chance nunez is a great player i thing he will be amaizn when we give him a chance loyd sam will be fully fit and back plying class again daived somma will get more game paynet will be fully fit and ready to go kisnorbo is like having a new signing so we should be fine

Believable7 Unbelievable2

Agreed. As SG has already stated there will be no wholesale changes. Obviously he needs to replace the already departed hopefully with better quality and bring a new LB and cb.

Agree0 Disagree0

Totally agree but the all the signings need to be experienced because we have a young squad and that is what we missed at crutial points last season some experience to get through the last 15mins.

Agree0 Disagree0

We need a rb and a cb too - lees may be a great prospect but he's about 12 years old and played in div 2 last year - give him a few games but you can't rely on him to step up like that

Agree0 Disagree0

How can we take someone seriously who doesnt know how to spell, or use punctuation?

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 22:58:33
to all you out there who r slagging off sg and bates. They hsve dun a great job for leeds and it will cum gud. Every 1 says bates wants to make money is correct, he is a buisnessman. He will do wat it takes to help the club earn money so he does too. I want us to sign sum great players now but if we dont and we end up with 15 players from a mental home il still be a leeds fan. Give them a break and c wat they do coz theyre not stupid. Am i right ed? {Ed015's Note - leeds is a buiness, when the new rules come in we will be in a stronger position}

Believable10 Unbelievable5

Ed: that's a great shout. It appears only thee and me have thought of this. {Ed015's Note - i mentioned it a while ago but nobody listens}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 22:51:21
to all leeds fans lets all get behind SG why would he get rid of 3 top players and not sign 3 more if not better stronger players lonergan a quality goalkeeper and will prove us all wrong all we are needing now is 2 strong midfielders to support howson gradel will stays as well as snoddy we will be challenging next year def so lets all stay calm and wait MOT BC

Believable13 Unbelievable4

I agree with standing by Grayson. He is limited to who he can buy, but I'm sure he has a few targets on his radar. OK we are a few players short of a good 11, which I think all Leeds fans know. However, that's only half the battle. We need strength in depth. Last year if we when we we struggling in a game SG had very limited options on the bench. We need good squad players who can come on and change a game. Maybe Tom Lees, Adam Clayton, Nunez and co may get a bit more of a chance this year

Agree0 Disagree0

What about nearly a whole new defence after last years defensive disaster

Agree0 Disagree0

look we need to give grayson a chance, after all there is 58 days of the transfer market left....

Believable15 Unbelievable5

Longer you wait the less available players there are

Agree0 Disagree0

And Grayson will wait for 57 of them before bringing in a couple of loanees and 30 something has beens and telling us all Leeds dont need to spend any money, playing for Leeds is enough to attract blah blah blah blah. I think bates and Grayson should go on that new Penn and Teller show, they will never guess how grayson keeps pulling the wool over so many leeds supporters eyes.

Agree0 Disagree0

We need to sign players soon before they go to other clubs

Agree0 Disagree0

Im the guy who wrote this post, and i agree we need to hurry and sign but there is 57 days left now.. be patient.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 22:17:11
Give lonergan and SG a break, grayson on way to being legend in my eyes at ER. Look at last season, 7th first time of asking quality, grayson also built blackpool team which got promoted
so In grayson and leeds we trust

Believable15 Unbelievable4

I wouldn't say Grayson built the blackpool team that got promoted. The resaon they went up was down to Ian Holloways attacking style. It was Holloway that signed Charlie Adam and DJ Campbell that pushed them to promotion. When Grayson was in charge of Blackpool they narrowly missed out on Relagation back to League 1 twce.

Agree0 Disagree0

Two years running we've bottled it in Jan - once acceptable but twice shows bates yes man doesn't learn from his mistakes. in grayson you trust-my 141iq and i do not trust him. too many poor loan signings, can't handle the pressure, poor tactics i.e. won't change his tactics to suit the fit and available players. persists with out of form players, drops in form players and failed to sort out our defence. trust him all you like but anyone with an ounce of intelligence can see grayson is not up to the job. kind regards

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd have expected someone claiming an IQ of 141 to have a basic grasp of punctuation...

04 Jul 2011 21:54:33
Not happy with what's going on at Elland Road. The bad thing about Leeds this season was that we missed out on the play offs by 3 points. Okay, let's get rid of our goalkeeper who conceded 70 goals and replace him with a goalkeeper who got a team relegated by conceding 79 goals (6 of them came from Leeds/4 in one game). Lonergan just isn't good enough, he's average and we'd have to pay for him as he still has 2 years left on his contract. Oh and another thing, let's get a goalkeeper who was a teams player of the year 2 seasons ago; since then has only played 3 games and conceded 9 goals. In all honesty I'm glad Leeds are starting to do something in the transfer market, but I'm not happy with what they are doing.

Believable6 Unbelievable16

On the sky sports site said that lonegran wasn't even first choice by the end of season

Agree0 Disagree0

Lonergan didn't play a lot last season, he played 29 league games, the rest were played by Iain Turner and their other goalkeeper I think

Agree0 Disagree0

He was injured.

No offense to Sky Sports but they tend to skip the minor details or get them totally wrong, like with Kisnorbo, he's basically on trial at Leeds so won't be speaking to other clubs..

Agree0 Disagree0

A keeper is only as good as his defence. He could be a top class keeper but have louzy defence which means he will conceed a lot of goals. Lonergan let a few goals in last season doesnt every keeper? If he signs for leeds lets give him a chance. Rachubka let 9 goals in last season and he played 3 games but he got blackpool promoted. Give SG a chance. See the signings he makes and judge them at the start of the season not now

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd have thought Schmeichel would have let in 79 goals with Preston. Possibly more.

Agree0 Disagree0

"Lonergan is not good enough" - based on what? He is a good keeper, and will bring stability to our defence. He can command his area and is a fair bit taller than Kasper, and will come to catch crosses, not punch them.

I am happy if this one comes off

Agree0 Disagree0

You keep blaming MS for the goals, but leeds had a few girl pants in front of him??

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 21:05:49
Im a season ticket holder and my gran has been going for over 25 years. She could do a better job in goal then dudeck or however you spell it starting to get worried few screws loose over at ellend road, dont slate me for " not being a propper leeds fan" i travel from wolves ever home game. So i obviously am

Believable5 Unbelievable12

Jerzy dudek... Please qualify why this would be a 'bad' signing? For the last 10 years he has been playin in europes top leagues and ok hes been number 2 at real madrid behind arguably the best keeper in the world. At 38 he will still have reflexes ie van de scum And he has been training with casilas and learning from him... How is that a bad thing? Id take him over lonergan any day

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldnt say you're not a real fan, just a clueless one

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 21:46:21
just a quick one, if we buy livermore, we are doomed absolute terrible player FACT Name one good thing he did for us last year?? {Ed015's Note - he sat on our bench... does that count?}

Believable8 Unbelievable5

He's heading to Rangers on loan anyway, according to Harry Redknapp on Sky Sports News.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 21:44:23
when are fans going realise we can't be patient for ever. all these so called targets and decent players are moving. we need to do something in the near future......

Believable11 Unbelievable2

You dont know who our targets are. Just because a name is mentioned on here, it doesnt make them a target. SO if they go to another club, we havent automatically missed out on them

SG knows who his targets are and negotiations will be ongoing, so in that sense it doesnt matter a jot how long they take

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 20:18:41
Leeds to sign a couple more Leicester cast-offs once their spending spree is over. (see Paddy, Max...)

Believable2 Unbelievable10

2 seasons ago you would have bit our hands off for paddy and last season you would have killed for max. Better than yak last season.

Agree0 Disagree0

If this is a Leicester fan taking the piss, the joke is on them

Agree0 Disagree0

Lol i wouldnt exactly call them cast offs.....

leeds to sign andy lonergan from p n e
-----------------------------------
can't beleive we would replace kasper with andy lonergan. i agree with SG that kasper leaving was best for lufc, and lonergan is an ok keeper, but to replace kasper with an "ok" keeper is a step backwards, come on SG we need better than lonergan if we are to push on for the premiership.

we are leeds MOT

Believable13 Unbelievable1

Kasper had more passion then the defenders in front of him, how SG could not see that?? Leeds will keep selling anyone who will bring in some money even if it means selling on the cheap, as they have done over the lats 3/4 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 19:56:16
Lonergan of PNE will be our new No.1, deal almost done, just waiting on players/agents to sign on dotted line.

Thom Kerwin on Yorkshire radio

Believable7 Unbelievable4

Listened with dispair to White hot news on yorkshire radio, Thom said Lonergan
was due, waiting on few bits n bods

Agree0 Disagree0

If thats true, we may aswell resign to another season in the championship
grayson stated he wants a better kepper than kasper
its laughable

Agree0 Disagree0

Good point - he is young. Bad point - conceded 4 against us unless I'm mistaken? Ed is he any good do u know? {Ed015's Note - we conceded 6 past preston tho, were did they finish again? haha, and with 207 championship matches under his belt he has the expericance}

Agree0 Disagree0

What a shocking signing if this is true-grayson and bates are clueless apes

Agree0 Disagree0

Kasper conceded 51 league goals last season. Preston conceded 79 goals with lonergan in for most of the season. Think he missed last 10 games or so. Do the math

Yet another masterstroke from Grayson and bates Bloody clueless

Agree0 Disagree0

Actually Lonergan played in 29 games, so missed 17 of them.

You lot are a bunch of idiots, never happy and completely clueless when it comes to players ability, and also to who we should be signing.

Who could we get in that is possibly better than Lonergan, without having to spend masses of money which we somply cant afford?

Agree0 Disagree0

They got relegated for a reason...... Get a decent goalie

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope we dont sign lonergran he is useless...PNE got relegated coz they let in too many goals...when we lost 6-4 against preston higgs was in goal for us....kasper is a million times better than lonergran and were probably playing more than 1mil for him and there are better free targets....please dont buy him SG and KB

Agree0 Disagree0

Conceded 60 goals in 33 games before being dropped - brilliant. We replace Kasper with a keeper that (using Graysons own logic) is even worse.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 19:37:33
Its all well and good being patient...but players are moving now and as it stands we are missing out. I think we need some signings this week to give confidence that we have planned targets otherwise it may be too late....

Believable6 Unbelievable2

Simon Grayson has stated that he expecting a couple of deals to be concluded this week.

Just seen on Sky Sports News that Bowyer has held positive talks with Ipswich So im guessing thats another player we have been linked with moving elsewhere. Staying positive though SG knows what hes doing. MOT

Believable7 Unbelievable6

There is nothing on skysports internet site about this. lies

Agree0 Disagree0

It was on the newspaper review on skysports, i watched it myself so he's not telling lies

Agree0 Disagree0

Whatever, only posted just what i watched. Whether the move goes ahead or not does not make what i have seen lies. Try watching before telling someone their lying.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh and one other thing try GOOGLE its amazing what you can find when you look.

Agree0 Disagree0

Having a laugh , lots of good players been snapped up and i guess we will end up with cast offs again and Bates saying he wont be held to ransom Boring boring boring

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont we always end up with cast offs? In a way Im glad, I dont want any of the old boys back.

on the website who is the player with the beard with lloyd sam on that article?

Believable3 Unbelievable2

Theres grella, gradel, clayton n sam in that photo...are you a leeds fan because you should know what our players look like..jesus.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeh but clayton did not look like that , he used to have a shaved head and no beard so calm it , and obvs i no it was gradel and grella and sam but clayton looks different and i am a leeds fan through and through so dont bulls**t me

Agree0 Disagree0

Calm down people I can confirm that the person with the beard was NOT Jesus.

Believable9 Unbelievable1

04 Jul 2011 18:07:01
St Ledger to Leicester. Another target off our list

Believable4 Unbelievable0

What makes you think he was a target not everyone who signs for someone else was a target were not interested in everybody

Agree0 Disagree0

If he was mentioned as a possibility from sources it suggests he's a target

Agree0 Disagree0

What sources if its not from sg then its prob not true, let me guess one of the daily lie sheets.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sky sports. A few others. Daily telegraph. It wasnt from a reliable source but he was still linkex with leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 17:53:20
BBC Radio Leeds Understands Leeds United are on the verge of signing Preston Keeper Andy Lonergan, subject to medical and any late hitches

Believable15 Unbelievable5

And we got rid of Smeichal as he let loads of goals in..... where did Preston finish again?

Agree0 Disagree0

SG said the reason for selling Kasper was that he let in 70 goals last season so if this is true it should be interesting to hear why we signed Lonergan when Preston conceded 79 last season.

Agree0 Disagree0

Grayson has stated we are replacing better players than we had
So this keeper is better than Kasper ?
LEEDS UNITED PLEASE START TO PULL YOUR FINGERS OUT
TIME IS RUNNING OUT, OR ARE WE HAPPY FOR A MID TABLE FINISH NOT

Agree0 Disagree0

How is this lad better than Kasper. He is not better, just cheaper and that appears to be whats important. Sadly Grayson is too much of a yes man, which will eventually cost him his job.

Agree0 Disagree0

Wait til you idiots see him play. how many of those games was he in the Preston goal for? Their team was awful, Lonergan is a ogod keeper

Agree0 Disagree0

Sadly, as much as I love Leeds and SG, it seems to be shaping up for a mid table finish. I'm fully behind SG and think he has been the best thing for us in years but letting KS go does appear to have been a big mistake.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 17:39:34
SG interested in Michael Brown

Believable11 Unbelievable4

A decent no nonsense player who has scored goals in this division too. Prob more realistic than some of the names mentioned (Frings, Bowyer)

Believable14 Unbelievable3

04 Jul 2011 16:51:44
Think we need to get of Graysons back and make judgements at the end of the season, the transfer window has been open only 4 days and we havent even played our first game of pre season yet? no doubt grayson will have a look around and see where we need to strengthen, people may not agree but i personalyl would also like to see some oportunity given to some of our academy players and try breed through some young passionate players like the likes of howson and get some spirit back in to the team, then bring expereince in to create the right balance, my opinion any way.

Fingers LUFC

Believable13 Unbelievable5

No excuse - seasons being finished for over a month nearly 2 months - Holidays ain't for slacking and other managers know it - look how many deals have been completed
I agree some youth would be nice to see but we need some professionals to replace the weakened areas then bring youths in to compete with them for time being

Agree0 Disagree0

Good idea if you want to play in the 1st division again

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds to speak to spurs boss Harry Redknapp about the avaliabilty of 4 Players. Gomes(Loan), Naughton(Loan), Walker(Loan) and Livermore for £750,000

Believable9 Unbelievable32

What a load.

Anyone who saw Livermore last season would know that we would not pay 75 let alone 750,000 for him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not a prayer of paying that amount for livermore, he was toilet

Agree0 Disagree0

I saw potential in livermore if im been honest. Ok he was more bad than good but hes still young n the glimpses of good looked really good. No chance with the others tho. Gomes wouldnt drop to championship and no way could we pay his wages. N walker n naughton will have interest from premier league clubs....

Agree0 Disagree0

I liked Jake aswell, a bigger stronger Bradley Johnson in my eyes

Agree0 Disagree0

Tbh i saw potential in livermore in first 5 mins then thought wow hes sh*t aand i agree i wouldnt pay 75 for him either.

Agree0 Disagree0

May be so, but we dont have that sort of money to splash

Agree0 Disagree0

Jake was fantastic, but cos Johnson and Killa were playing well he didnt get the games. Would love to see him back. Walker and Naughton could possibly be great in defence. If Gomes is going to come, SG is serious about being a promotion and possibly title contender

Agree0 Disagree0

Livermore has great potential and he showed that last year. They would all be good signings

Agree0 Disagree0

Harry Redknapp already stated that Walker is staying at White Heart Lane to compete for a first team place next season and also Livermore is set for a loan switch to Rangers.

Leeds appartently are going to make an audatious bid for 2 sunderland players which will be Anton ferdinand and Jack Colbeck. Grayson feels ferdinand will be a solid centre half for us and feels jack colbeck would be an ideal centre midfielder to partner jonny howson.
Rumours to appear on skysports Soon about this

Believable13 Unbelievable24

Was this rumour from www.skysportspre-rumour.com?

why don't people put an actual source with their rumours? {Ed015's Note - people dont have to put a source with rumours as it is a rumours site}

Agree0 Disagree0

For God's sake please just sign somebody half decent. Craig Makail Smith to Brighton I fear we are going to be left behind. All the clubs seem to have ambition but not Leeds Utd. I am sick of hearin gwe are interested in him and him and none of it ever comes to fruition.

Agree0 Disagree0

Oooooh I hope so. Then we could sign Sh*te-us Bramlble and maybe an audacious return for Duberry.
I don't thing people laugh at our defense enough these days.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 14:43:55
I think people seem to forget that Rachubka conceded 9 goals in 3 games playing for Blackpool last season who leaked goals worse than us so think we should give him a break and see him play before we pass any judgement on him

Believable11 Unbelievable12

Its too easy to criticise SG. Especially when he let Schmeichel go. Yes a mistake but its in the past now, lets move on

Agree0 Disagree0

He was also blackpools player of the year when they got promoted

Agree0 Disagree0

Ye n thez muppets 4get he was SG's No 1 at Blackpool n was also player of the year, so fo the 9 goals he was just back in the team, so get off his back n lets see what he is made of....M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

Lets also remmber that these were the first premier league games for Blackpool, so against higher league opposition. Bear in mind we suffered similarly as we got used to the championship. Its nt all the keepers fault, and as said he is experienced at championship level.

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 14:07:48
I think there is something going on that none of us knows about. We've been linked with so many players, Grayson has admitted a few of them. He also said he has spoken with Smith, Bowyer and Woodgate; now he's saying contact is still to be made? Something isn't right 3 first teamers have left, we've brought in one goalkeeper who played 3 games and conceded 9 goals. I just hope SG proves me wrong because he's done well.. Up until now

Believable21 Unbelievable3

Goal keeper Paul R Duno how u spell his name. He is a good goal keeper was one best goal keepers in league when in championship. He was injures last year 3 games 9goals not bad when u look at us who conceded 6-5-4 and so on. Come on guys give him a chance

Agree0 Disagree0

Not once has he said he has spoken to Smith, Bowyer or Woodgate.

When asked, he said he had spoken to their agents, but those agents have lots of players on their books. Basically we wont be told anything by the club until a deal is done, and that is the best way.

Agree0 Disagree0

That's the best way? Are you deluded? We pay 600+ for a season ticket and whenever it comes to the transfer window, we ALWAYS get kept in the dark Our money is keeping the club going and we get nothing + Sorry I'll correct myself, someone from Yorkshire Radio said something along the lines of.. "I know Simon Grayson has spoken to Alan Smith for a fact"

Agree0 Disagree0

NO, SG said he hadn't spoken to the players directly And that went for Smith, Bowyer and Woodgate. Stop twisting the truth. Their people or representives but NOT directly to them, and anyway we speak to countless potential targets, talking to them doesnt mean ANYTHING

SMITH WILL NOT RETURN, YOUR OBSESSED And thats NOT a good thing either

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2011 14:06:27
Best news of this summer so far Listening to simon Grayson's interview he doesn't sound very interested in Alan Smith at all

At Elland Road now and I have seen Alan Smith walking around along with 2 coaching squad members having a look around. All looked very friendly. Rumours has it he was seen at Thorp Arch before too? Revisiting his past...or signing a new contract?

Believable10 Unbelievable26

Shame you didn't get a pic we'd believe you then lol

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't know how, i just saw him in las vegas, he was crying at the blackjack table, aparently he bet all his money away and needs 60k a week, so he is staying at newcastle.

Agree0 Disagree0

I was at Elland Road today around same time and guess what?? Your a lying git

Agree0 Disagree0

Why are there all these rumours about sightngs at Elland Road. There are no training facilities, hence no coaches and no offices, hence no dealings or announcements at the Stadium. most of the facilities were moved out ages ago.
All you will see at Elland Road is some builders, a Chippie, a bar, a pub, a sandwhich shop and a newsagents.

Agree0 Disagree0

He needed to check out the stadium because he's never been there yeah?? Billy Bulls****r

Agree0 Disagree0

Roflmao
For what it's worth not all the Newcastle players are back in training until Thursday, Smith wasn't back in training today but that means nothing. You're right about Elland Road, I can't for the life of me think why he'd be there, oh well something to chuckle about in these dull moments I guess

Agree0 Disagree0

Wrong, their back Today Check Bartons Twitter

Believable6 Unbelievable15

Suffice to say we'll be wanting to send his as a BOGOF with Bessone after 3 games

Agree0 Disagree0

The lads on the donny site say he is rubbish. More suited to centre half.

Which clown posted this? This deal will not happen

Dont have to be a Prem player to be quality, so as fo low key your talking crap lots of quality in the lower leagues waiting to be given the chance..

A quote from SG in todays YEP.
Grayson said: You can t disguise that losing Kilkenny and Johnson has left us short in the middle of the park. The centre of midfield is probably the main area that we need to look at". Didnt he say following departure of Kasper that the defence was the priority? Also SG claims to have 5 options for GK including Dudek.

OFFICIAL NEWS FROM YORKSHIRE RADIO.
Simon Grayson has stated he has yet to speak to Alan Smith regarding a transfer.

Admitted a few weeks ago tho that they there has been some contact with the agent.
Looks to me that Alan Smith is not a transfer target.

Believable8 Unbelievable9

Well it's all a bit contradictory he's either spoken to smith or he hasn't he should just come out with it if he isn't chasing him to kill all the rumours off for good
smith shouldve been back at training with Newcastle today anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

Didn't he say that there had been contact with his agent which is different to saying he had actually spoke to Smith in person? {Ed015's Note - yes! }

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes fair point to the last poster, you're right, so perhaps hes just pointing out that there's nothing new to say on the subject as they're no further on. Bowyer is being linked with QPR and he'd probably fancy another year in the Prem than dropping down to Championship. Woodgate, itd have to be a pay as you play and even more risky given the lack of playing time. Whatever is actually going on, it'd be nice to see some movement by Friday ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

Didn't he say that there had been contact with his agent which is different to saying he had actually spoke to Smith in person?
Precisely.......

Agree0 Disagree0

Theirs no further on about it, he wont return because we wont pay him enough. I'm glad he's a modern day money obsessed footballer, saves the split in the fanbase anyone encouraging that isnt Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Any idea where I can read the full interview?

I hear Leeds transfer targets are the ones below, 1 Keeper, 1 Right back, 1 Left back, 2 Centre backs, 2 midfielders.
Ive heard Grayson is interested and have spoke to Woodgate and Smith, but they are not top targets.
The Main targets are Khizinashvilli, Spector and Cork.
Rob Edwards and David Carney are very likely with the Blackpool connection.
Grayson rates Brown, although i do not

GK Brown/FonWilliams/Murphy/Stockdale
RB Spector/Edwards/Parnaby/Pantsil
LB Carney/Serran/R Gardner
CB Khizinashvili/Zuiverloon/Gabbidon/
Woodgate
CM Bowyer/Smith/Geddes/jones/I Morris/Mahon/Semedo/K McDonald/Rae/Salifou/Cork

Believable4 Unbelievable20

All the goalies are poor

as is parnaby and spector and pantsil could still play in prem for someone like wolves

zurab is rubbish and zuiverloon is a rb.

most players listed here are either rubbish or unlikely to sign for us due to wage demands i.e bowyer woodgate pantsil gardner zuiverloon

Agree0 Disagree0

Thought Spector was on silly money at west ham?

Agree0 Disagree0

Rob Edwards has joined Barnsley and Riccardo Gardner is staying with Bolton.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would Cork be Jack Cork who Hull City signed last week ?

Leeds to sign preston gk andy lonergan

Source. .......Mirror

Believable13 Unbelievable9

I think you'll find it says Leeds 'could' make a move for him. Doesn't neccesarily mean we're signing him

Agree0 Disagree0

Was'nt to sign, was showing interest. don't twist the wording.

Agree0 Disagree0

Quote 'Leeds to sign' - not looking at, your getting yourself in a twist

Agree0 Disagree0

Either way Lonergan would be great signing for us he struggled at preston because they had Rubbish managers.

Confirmed from my sources in leeds,

non of the rumors are true

only possibility is lee bowyer, smith and woodgate

all three giving negotiations problem

lee bowyer is holding out for a premiere league club

Smith doesnt want to cut weekly wage, awaiting for any club who could give him additional 15 k

woodgate is closet to a sign - if leeds offer him a contractual agreement - as he may not join for earn as u play contract

Believable12 Unbelievable10

Yorkshire radio interview suggested that the club haven't spoken with Smith so v bizarre
