Leeds to sign Paddy Kenny with in a week or two . Leeds also could sign Liverpools Raheem Stirling on a loan deal

Believable9 Unbelievable26

Another ex QPR player!
Anymore and we best move to london!

Agree0 Disagree0

"in a week or two" is not really a certified rumour,talk about a margin for error! In terms of the takeover I'm sorry to be pessimistic but being a Leeds fan I am starting to feel it will never happen,please
Prove me wrong!

F37 BLU

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't want kenny and i defo don't want stirling on loan. why would we get anyone on loan when we get taken over. if we are going to get loan players it will be last minute thing as a backup plan if we cant afford to buy anymore players but as we are alowed to spend 10 mil anyway before the sale of any players i can't see any loans coming in until january and even then they will be top class players .

Agree0 Disagree0

Kenny iis a very, very old (rumour) and Warnock has also said he isn't interested in signing anyone on loan.....

Agree0 Disagree0

Why wouldn't u want sterling on loan? have you seen him play? and paddy kenny is a class keeper!

Agree0 Disagree0

Believable17 Unbelievable20

Believable22 Unbelievable10

He's on holiday for three days..poor from you, zzzzz

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe a few days in leeds is a holiday! Lmao!

Agree0 Disagree0

He goes on holiday tomorrow if you read his twitter page,he was seen leaving Thorpe Arch today apparently

Agree0 Disagree0

Paddy was there yesterday but he did not have a medical just talking money's so stop lying {Ed045's Note - Not necessarily.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah he was seen in Wetherby town centre in the costa coffee, where all the leeds lads usually go on a friday after training......that or he just fancied a skinny Latte!

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2012 20:31:54
Is it true that Paddy Kenny has just signed with Doncaster? Check twitter account!

Believable9 Unbelievable23

I just looked, and i cant see anything, quote it in a reply is there really is? lufcwilko {Ed013's Note - I have checked also. I am going to give a time limit on bull s*****s and if they are posting purely for a reaction I am going to block them. However if this rumour becomes true then I apologise in advance. Today has been one of the worst days for s**t stirrers from other sites}

Agree0 Disagree0

Why lie true Leeds fans, need proper rumours not bull sh**ters getting a ego boost by posting crap..............kevlufc

Agree0 Disagree0

According to twitter paddy was at thorp arch today!!


tommo M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

Its because he has looked at the fake twitter account try looking at this one and what he is saying isnt bulls**t he has seen it but its not paddy kenny {Ed013's Note - Thanks for clearing that up mate. I have had so much S**t come in today. I asked Paddy if he likes the Thorpe Arch facilities and he has removed my comment!}

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be nice to see some action, i dont know if you can have links so if you type in paddy kenny twitter on google its the first one, some guy trying to stir s**t up

Agree0 Disagree0

Confusion reigns, has he sign for donnie or not? Is that a fake twitter account? {Ed013's Note - FAKE}

Agree0 Disagree0

Thanks Ed...by the way hope everyones still on for post bates party...serious were gonna hire a pub in leeds for night {Ed013's Note - I think it will be party time at the first game if this all goes through. A good excuse to fill the ground with cheap tickets on sale}

Agree0 Disagree0

He is in Marbella for a few days with ex team mates from Sheff Utd so can someone tell me how he has had a medical at Thorpe Arch ?!

Agree0 Disagree0

To the poster hiring pub for party, do you think one will be big enough? Leeds fans will be partying all over the world when the leech has finally gone! {Ed013's Note - Thats why it should be in and around Elland Road at the first game}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed 13, Would this be Shewsbury or Wolves, as I travel from Shrewsbury. Though I have decided to only attend away games, at the end of last season, till Bates is gone. {Ed013's Note - That would make sense as the tickets are cheap. Although I am sure that where ever the Leeds fans are there will be celebrations. Lets hope its a big one at the end of the season!}

Agree0 Disagree0

From Pub Hiring Poster : We'll my friends and I are going to hire a pub/club which is owned by an ex school friend. All started going when Billy Bremner was manager. If it is a middle east consortium (we don't really know) then there's gonna be lots of head gear. I know its a rumour site but will put location on when announcement is made. PS Spoke to Steve Waggot (Ed you'll know where he's from) very cagey tonight...not his forthcoming self but won't embarrass him {Ed013's Note - I wonder whats wrong with him}

Agree0 Disagree0

Elland Rd on first game post takeover will be magic...this guy who's taking us over must have some clout to keep this one quiet

Agree0 Disagree0

Poster from Shrewsbury...I travel from Shrewsbury too...were booked in for Shrewsbury game give me a shout if your going up...ps HSS Shop in town, bloke gives discount to leeds fans!

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed I did ask him if Cheque for keogh had bank of qatar on it! :) {Ed013's Note - haha nice}

Agree0 Disagree0

I really couldn't give a f#*k whether we get Paddy Kenny or not & tbh I'm sick of hearing about him, Lonergan is a more than capable keeper & will only improve with a decent defence in front of him. Surely another CB, a quality RB & CM should be our main priorities at the moment. Hopefully we will hear something soon about future signings/investment/takeover because the suspense is killing me! AB

Agree0 Disagree0

To second Shrewsbury poster, thanks for the offer, have'nt decided on Shrewsbury
game yet. If Bates is stiil around,. first game will be Blackpool away. Ask ed if he wiil forward my email address, if he's allowed. {Ed013's Note - Yes mate, no problems. I just need the other lads}

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2012 20:29:26
If paddy kenny has been seen leaving Thorpe arch takeover announcement should be within the next few days, someone asked paddy on twitter if he had left Thorpe arch and he sent loads of smiley faces. Exciting times boys Leeds at heart.

Believable15 Unbelievable12

Hearing and understanding that takeover deal is DONE!!!!!! The contracts guaranteeing the takeover are only contingent on 1 thing. The sun coming up on Friday morning!! The club are now preparing for a lot of PR that inevitably follow such a big change and are hotly pursuing their transfer targets but they are cleverly stalling on agreeing transfer fees but keeping the deals alive by telling the respective selling club formal bids follow on Monday or Tuesday of next week!

Get ready for happy freaky Friday followed by manic Monday and transfer targets Tuesday!!

Thanks Ken. Bye Ken.

Believable20 Unbelievable17

Think I will only believe the deal is done when it's splashed all over national media. If the new buyers are serious players it will make a big news story. So far...nada...niet...nuthin'...nul...non.

Agree0 Disagree0

If it's reliant on the sun coming up on Friday... in Leeds... then we're screwed :p

Agree0 Disagree0

News embargo definately in place...this guy must have some clout whoever is buying it. I wonder if he knows the amount of beer that's gonna be consumed in leeds that night when hopefully it gets announced!

Agree0 Disagree0

I lived in Yorkshire for 36 years before moving to the USA. The sun coming up on Friday is not a good bet.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sun coming up on Friday is a certainty, end of the world not due till December according to that Mayan calendar thing. Sun coming OUT on Friday is a different matter- but takeover will happen eventually. Have faith.

Agree0 Disagree0

So it's now takeover THIS friday, not last friday, monday, tuesday, wednesday or today then as previously positively definitely stated by everyone and his brother's sister's aunt's uncle's dog walker then?

Yeah right, you have no more clue than anyone else (even those brokering the deal obviously don't know when it will end yet....)

It'll happen if and when it does, not before....

Ps, The sun always shines on TV - but not always on fridays....

Agree0 Disagree0

Quick! Everyone turn their tvs on on friday! Keep the faith!

Believable14 Unbelievable14

How do you know he was seen? Did you see him?

Agree0 Disagree0

Lots of people know about this, and to all those who said he was on a 3 day hol, look at his twitter, he got up early this am to go to the airport, so plenty of time to go to TA yesterday. I think his ;))) confirms it for me.

Believable25 Unbelievable2

Good, let's get Alex McCarthy or Keiron Westwood in. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

If we're going to sign Alex McCarthy we don't need to waste money on Paddy Kenny ... maybe you can now edit out all of the rubbish surrounding his signing now Ed.

Agree0 Disagree0

We don't need to sell him, but as long as we get good money and a good replacement, it's fine.

an annoucement is definately going to happen today live events on website going to be screened as the reavealing of our new owners releaed 100% fact

Believable11 Unbelievable16

No, bang wrong, this is the new LUTV that is being put on the OS, confirmed by Paul Dews as NOT anything else apart from the site delevopers testing for streaming next season, so get your facts right first kid.

Agree0 Disagree0

Paul Dews already confirmed on Twitter that today's fisaco was just a test of the new system.

Agree0 Disagree0

And where do you have this information?

Agree0 Disagree0

You are what is wrong with this site!! thinking that you can just make stuff up by putting 2 and 2 together to get 12. and putting "100% fact" when you have just been proved wrong. Never put anything like this on this site ever again!!

Agree0 Disagree0

It's probably nothing at all, at least nothing to do with LUFC...and certainly nothing to do with us being taken over... :-(

Agree0 Disagree0

So what time is this press conference? 3pm has come and gone...!!

Agree0 Disagree0

The latest news on the official site once again backs up that things are going to take time. I think we need a lot more patience.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's not a fact at all, it's just a guess with no foundation like everything else.

Agree0 Disagree0

Well it never happend silly dates as i post this is 5th july

gazza

Agree0 Disagree0

Its now the 6th - jog on pal, we are all eager for news. I might nip to Billy's Bar to ask Heskey for an update :(

Luke Chambers considering move to Leeds now not Ipswich as leeds have put in a bid for him.

Believable17 Unbelievable17

Forest fans seem to think that he is waiting for a improved offer from Forest now they have a takeover announced so unlikely

Agree0 Disagree0

He is out of contract,dont need to put bid in.

Agree0 Disagree0

As a forest fan I hope we don't re-sign him he had 1good season out of 5 and thinks he's better then what he is I hope he goes

Agree0 Disagree0

You still effectively bid by offering a contact, and he will decide which contract he wants. It is a bid really.

Coventry City defender Richard Keogh could be a new player at Leeds when the Middle East money comes in

Believable20 Unbelievable9

04 Jul 2012 12:46:53
Have it on good authority takeover will not happen until after July 12th. Leeds exited Administration on 11th July 2007. There was a clause that creditors got a percentage of any profits made should the club be sold within 5 Years.
It is called an anti -embarrasment clause - strange name but true.
Lufc65

Believable16 Unbelievable14

Good idea but off the mark I think. The anti-embarrassment clause was for 10 years, to come into effect on promotion to the Premier League

Agree0 Disagree0

Boll***s Never heard of an anti-embarrassment clause and I work in commercial law.

Agree0 Disagree0

Im not shore but i was told a take over could go ahead now as leeds would not have to pay any money to creditors

but im thinking its 7years

Agree0 Disagree0

An anti-embarrassment clause to be used in connection with Share purchase agreement: single corporate seller: non-simultaneous exchange and completion, Share purchase agreement: multiple individual sellers: simultaneous exchange and completion and Share purchase agreement: multiple individual sellers: non-simultaneous exchange and completion.
A seller may seek to negotiate on-sale or "anti-embarrassment" protection from a buyer, to cover a situation where the buyer on-sells the sale asset within a certain period after the original sale. The aim is to readjust the original sale price, and to ensure that the seller is not "embarrassed" by having lost out on a higher sale price in its original sale of its asset.

Agree0 Disagree0

To the chap who 'works in commercial law'; such clauses are actually quite common. When you've finished the photo-copying, ask one of those actual lawyers you work for.
Original poster; I think you're confusing clauses. Previous 'official' owner of Leeds was FSF. Sold last year to Ken Bates.
Any clause in the CVA guaranteeing creditors with a portion of the sale profits within a certain period would have expired with the sale in 2011 unless otherwise stated in the CVA.
Whatever 'good authority' you've been speaking to seems less credible. There is a 'reported' clause in the CVA which must be honoured - placed by HMRC - ensuring a 10 million-or-so payment if LUFC return to the Premiership within 10 years of the CVA. If this is not honoured, HMRC can easily issue another winding-up order on Leeds United.
This is not anti-embarassment protection as such and is not linked in any way with the sale or purchase of the club, only the club's potential revenue streams.

Agree0 Disagree0

Original poster here. Only stating what I was told which sounded plausable. Never heard of the term personally but thought it was worth posting. To poster No2 I assume you got sacked from your job for being thick?

Agree0 Disagree0

The clause for additional payments for creditors lasts for 10 years not 5, therefore the significance of July 11/12 is not relevant

Agree0 Disagree0

What a crock. First, no such thing as an anti-embarrassment clause. I know. I am a lawyer. Second, the club making a profit means LUFC the company making a profit. Accordingly, the trigger is not who owns them it's the books. Consequently, any takeover would be irrelevant on your own argument. Takeovers don't create a profit for the company. They create a taxable capital gain (unless you live in Monaco) for the owner. Last time I checked Ken Bates is not Leeds United and Leeds United is certainly not Ken Bates. Takeover will happen Friday in my view, the day most lawyers prefer for legal completion.

Agree0 Disagree0

OK, let's just wait and see. Just hope we're not all going to be embarrassed after all this frenzy of speculation! Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

It was within 10 years.

Agree0 Disagree0

Gosh... someone claiming to be a lawyer who can't read clearly written English commercial law, argue a point coherently or show any convincing level of expertise.
Definitely a commercial lawyer, then.
Now, run along and dig out the rest of those covenants so that one-bed flat sale can go through by Friday, would you?
Pitiful!

Matt mills signed for bolton! Another decent signing gone elsewhere! Wish this bloody takeover would hurry up and b completed!
MOT

Believable15 Unbelievable3

Probably dont really need mills defence is starting to look better . they wanted 3 mil for mills anyway bolton got him on loan

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Bolton have actually signed him according to SSN. Matt Mills is a good player and would have liked to see him at Leeds, but for 2-3 million i'd rather take Luke Chambers.

Chambers in my opinion is a great alternative, and he will walk into most promotion chasing sides. Full season of starting football, and player of the year at Forest. Great player for free, and probably cheaper wages.

Mickey1992.

Agree0 Disagree0

There is no takeover. Stop fooling yourselves. If there was big money then NW would not be shopping in the bargain bin. Keep calm and carry on as normal. Mid table finish at best!

Agree0 Disagree0

We have just brought in some decent cheap/free players which if we hadn't got would of been snapped up by someone else.now this gives us extra money to spend on top players . that is why we are in the bargain bin at the moment . watch the next week or so there will be some 1 mil + players been brought in from prem league .

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would having money affect whether we go for bargains or not? It's a bargain! Do you not understand the meaning of the word?

Agree0 Disagree0

Big money = big players. The signings already made and most of the rumoured are not any better than the ones already at the club or recently departed, though I do believe we now have a manager capable of putting a team together, albeit from the 'bargain bin'.

Agree0 Disagree0

Eds and fellow Leeds fans

As i stated earlier my contact, who is working on the deal at present and is limited to what he can reveal, informed me that the Due Dilligence is ongoing at the minute...however he has just informed me that he has just booked himself a holiday for which he shall be leaving on Friday...now i am not saying that this is his "secretive" way of telling me everything is sorted, but I would certainly hope that it is!! MOT

Youngie!

Believable6 Unbelievable15

So he is limited to what he can tell you but he's not going to be there after thursday?

Care to mention his name, or was he too limited to tell you that as well?

Oldie!

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe it's Thomas Cook that's taking us over. Or sheikh Thomas cook.

Agree0 Disagree0

That's right mate! Because of the confidentiality agreements in place he could lose his job if he revealed any of the 'specifics'!

I have previously detailed who he works for, where i work and how we are connected...ED13 can certainly vouch for me on this as he felt it necessary to remove certain information that i had provided just in case anyone were to get in trouble from what i had posted!

Youngie! {Ed013's Note - this is the most legitimate information I have received}

Agree0 Disagree0

Well, if ed agrees, it must have something in it. i'm still unsure because of the lack of press, because they usually latch onto these kind of things, even if the subjects still want to keep it secret, since the press always have ways of getting themselves into everyone else's business, and this is the kind of thing where, if it was on, the papers would put out notice beforehand.

Agree0 Disagree0

I believe you mate, makes sense to me.
Hope your mate is going on holiday and not fleeing the country. :@)
JB

Agree0 Disagree0

I remember the previous post and it being one of the few posts that shows to have some credibility. Ill take this as a strong indications this are nearly complete! people may say we already knew that but these stories of delayed money transfers are utter rubbish with no proof! These are the kind of posts we actually what to see not "announcment to be made tomorrow" posted everyday.

KarlT

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed, are you saying that youngie is telling the truth? {Ed013's Note - Youngie does have a contact in the solicitor world that seems to be in the know regarding certain things at Leeds}

Agree0 Disagree0

Excellent, Thanks Ed. Finally someone in "the know" keeps up to date Youngie.

Agree0 Disagree0

I will keep you all updated with everything I hear! And believe me I am chasing info every minute of the working day...(the good thing about Insolvency is that nobody ever stops working so breaking news could come at 3am...it is just a matter of being patient!) MOT!!

Youngie!

Agree0 Disagree0

Media would think twice about this one, even if they were quietly given the whole story by Ken Bates, himself.
If printed, a witchhunt and litigation could follow where sources are required to be named in a civil court.
This would be a bad thing for the press as confidentiality agreements broken couldn't be fended off with the press claiming confidentiality for their sources.
Anyone with reliable information on this would rightly be cagey about revealing much at all... but that's precisely why we're in this situation at the moment. Nobody officially saying a thing and everyone rightly scared to speak much even if they do know something.
The speculation's been fun, though. Got to admit that.

Believable2 Unbelievable8

04 Jul 2012 12:33:38
Does any one outside the ivory towers of Elland Road actually know whats happening with the takeover / investment. No. I thought not.
Reading the rumours and dreaming like every one else. But till the club itself announce it , i remain very cautious of Mr Bates. Granted he has turned the club around , and he has saved the club we all love from extinction. But i cant help wondering. just keep us informed of whats going on. dont leave us to suffer any longer. If its to be announced tomorrow , then tell us. If its next week then tell us. Hope for your sake Mr Bates you have got this deal done right and its not some skip hire company wanting their name on the shirts. please just give us some thing from within the club.

Believable11 Unbelievable3

Takeover complete ,just a few signings of players to sort out and then we will see it on os should be within next few days . its that emille heskey too busy eating rather than signing on the dotted line

Believable4 Unbelievable5

04 Jul 2012 12:20:29
I thought I'd do a quick summary of the rumours doing the rounds to try and sum up where we are with the takeover.

- YP/YEP both reporting that the deal isn't perhaps as close as we thought - Neil Warnock now not expecting players in for another 7-14 days

- We are now linked with moves for Richard Keogh, Paddy Kenny, Luke Varney, David Norris and Luke chambers, all of whom (exceptions Chambers) command transfer fees - so there must be some money coming in;

- Interestingly, Snodgrass, McCormack, Clayton, White are all still at the club. I would personally have thought there would have been some movement on the way out if Bates was still continuing as normal;

- Incredibly, nobody at all appears to have any idea of who the supposed bidders are, leading many Leeds fans to lose faith that any deal is indeed taking place;

- LUST have now clarified that they believe that the bidder has an English representative rather than an English frontman.

So in essence, looks like we're lining up deals which we hope to go through if and when the takeover goes through. However, there is remarkably little independent evidence and seriously scarce information, so everyone is in the dark.

Believable10 Unbelievable2

Thanks for telling us but i think everybody already knows this

Agree0 Disagree0

This is the most sensible post on here I've seen. It's doing everyone's heads in waiting for some news, which is merely fuelling more daft rumours. It's like waiting for, well, waiting for something that takes a long time to happen. Just praying that it goes through. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

04 Jul 2012 11:01:08
Leeds United need to keep decent player's like Adam Clayton, Robert Snodgrass,Ross McCormack & Aide White! Keeping these 4 would be better than a lot of signing's rumoured to be linked to us at present! And definitely don't sell them to rival's Eg Clayton linked to Huddersfield Town FC! He's a class player! This doesn't make sense to sell to a rival Championship club! Keep the good players!!

Believable12 Unbelievable8

If they don't want to play for us why would we want to pay them? Get shut now

Agree0 Disagree0

Well it looks like clayton is going to huddesfield if the take over is going to happen and if all the rumours are true that we will have money to burn
there is a lot more better middfield anker men out there than clayton.that will comit to the club for longer any way a bit of a backward step going to huddesfield to be honest let him get on with it.

Agree0 Disagree0

Couldn't agree more big man. The players being linked do not inspire shock,awe, and confidence. Why can we never hold on to our top/promising players?

Agree0 Disagree0

Completely agree about time someone spoke some sense on here

Agree0 Disagree0

We want players who want to play for leeds! if they don't want to stay then good riddance to them!

Agree0 Disagree0

Adam Clayton is such a class player that only Huddersfield are after him...

Agree0 Disagree0

Let clayton go to hudders it a huge step back for him he's been no good since howson left anyway.robbo lufc

We all give this west ham site a hard time, but fairs fair, it was amusing and obviously shows what Big News this really is and how most of football is interested in the Take Over story.

PS. I will email CERN to see if they can find the would be owners for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

Higgs Boson taking over the Gods of football that are Leeds United is very appropriate, however I think there is some relativity in the post at the writer is obviously a Boso(n) himself.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's not amusinga at all, the guy obviously has nothing better to do and Wet Spam have so little to write about he just tries to get hits on his site.

Nobody else is interested in this story, other than hoping it doesn't happen so they can gloat, like this idiot!

Yorkshire Post stating, and I quote from them:

"With due diligence over a proposed takeover by the group recently granted a period of exclusivity by the Elland Road hierarchy expected to continue for at least the rest of this week, Leeds are keen to press ahead with their own transfer business."

So at least YP believe it won't happen today, watch this space though, we all know that YP have no more clues than we do...

Isn't that the same information that the YEP has been posting in various guises for the last few weeks?

Yes, agreed, but they have been right, haven't they:

"expected to continue for at LEAST the rest of the week"

Agree0 Disagree0

Only person that told you this is yourself. You don't know anything more than the rest of us.

News is just breaking of the possible identity of the man behind the bid to buy Leeds United. Although nothing has been finally confirmed, a jet chartered by Sheik Nosob Sggih landed at Leeds Bradford International Airport yesterday and the reclusive figure, with an entourage of special advisers and security, was rumoured to have been driven away in fleet of black Mercedes.

with all these new rumors team could look like this.

Kenny
Peltier Keogh Pearce Drury
green Norris
Snodgrass Mcgugan Varney
Becchio

Believable7 Unbelievable9

Hope not, We need more power than Becchio upfront.

Agree0 Disagree0

That would get us around midtable, nowhere near good enough for promotion.

Agree0 Disagree0

The best rumours team is this:

Kenny

pelts pearce chambers/keogh drury

green norris

snoddy boyd diouf

BECKFORD

Now that team gets promotion.

Agree0 Disagree0

That team, if managed correctly, would do better than mid table - top 6.

latest to be linked is luke varney!

Believable9 Unbelievable7

Beebn linked for weeks, i will be furious if he signs for us

Agree0 Disagree0

Not good enough, simples! Bounces from club to club for a reason

Agree0 Disagree0

Journeyman! Just check out his record. Simply not the sort of player who should be anywhere near a squad with promotion aspirations (ditto Monty). Chapel A

Richard keogh linked with leeds really can you say he is as good as tom lees stop all this plays in league 1 not good enough

Believable6 Unbelievable7

Coventry player of the season last two seasons, at championship level. def good enough for me. neil.

Agree0 Disagree0

He won every player award possible at Cov last year, put him at the heart of the back 4 with Pearce and we have 2 centre backs who scooped A LOT of player awards last season at their respective clubs, which can only be a positive.

One man doesn't get a team relegated......leeds had a disappointing season but it doesn't make Snodgrass a poor player, or change the fact Ross bagged touching 20 goals. There can be positives to come out of poor clubs, regardless of where they finish in the league. I would certainly be happy if we pip Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bristol city to his signature!

Agree0 Disagree0

Won player of the year award 2010-2011, and won every award possible for Coventry last season at championship level and only 25. Sounds good enough to me.

Agree0 Disagree0

Played in championship last year and was one of best players for cov so your comment is a bit daft don't you think

Agree0 Disagree0

Remind me how many goals we scored against Coventry last season and how many points we got over the two games ... perhaps with a little help from Paul Rachubka ... he'd be good enough for me, and certainly better than some of the other rumoured names.

Agree0 Disagree0

Top player, be good for us,doesnt matter what lge a player is in if he's good enough get him

Agree0 Disagree0

Actually, a decent player at this level, with potential to improve. Lees is a great prospect and already established as a great pro, but we need more than 2 decent centre backs in the squad (and Lees is versatile enough to fill in at rb as well if necessary). Chapel A

Richard Keogh being strongly linked with us! Would be a good signing i think at 25 years old he's the right age we should be looking at.

Believable9 Unbelievable5

04 Jul 2012 08:44:28
Rumoured we're after Richard Keogh from Coventry. Would be a good signing, won all their player of the season awards and highlighted as having strong leadership potential, exactly the type we should be looking at in the heart of the defence. Heard anything Ed?

Great! Another defender from a team that got relegated. Big money takeovers my ar..!

I love the smell of rumours in a morning!!

Eds and fellow Whites fans...

I have had a message from my "contact" whom i shall no longer mention due to potential employment risks...he has simply stated the "DD is happening this week but can't say a great deal more"...I just wanted to get this up so that people will stop believing every Tom, Dick and Harry who claim to know when everything is happening! The truth is that nobody knows exactly, not even the solicitors...so lets just keep our fingers crossed and keep the faith!! MOT!!

Youngie!

Believable5 Unbelievable5

Truth is there is no takeover and there never has been. its all a smokescrean from papa smurf, no cash signings till further notice, THATS. THE TRUTH

No thanks, we want players on the up -we've had too many on the way down in the last decade; and if the days of austerity are over, our finances will support a different policy. Chapel A

Looks like Aidey White is having to play the waiting game too?

I figure he is waiting to see if he (and others) are offered a better deal if it completes okay, and I must say I can't blame him, this takeover/investment was not on the cards (allegedly) when he and McCormack refused whatever new deal was offered them?

If we do get more money and he isn't offered a better deal, who would blame him for wanting away to a club where he can get more? Just hope we will get some decent compensation as a result, she he decide to go......

Ed is there anyway of stopping or reducing the amount of childish idiots that put this type of thing out?? {Ed045's Note - If I had a legitimate reason to believe that it was a lie then I would, but this rumour is just as plausable as any of the others we have.
I will monitor from now though to see who consistently posts rubbish.
