Leeds to offer myler and poloskei one year contracts to boost numbers. Also seems we are looking for defensive cover. These are cheaper than loan market and shows the club are desperate due to Bates holding back ob signing deal till his bid for pompey is accepted.

This is no bull about the trialist's but i think tht kb going to sign 4 pompey is crap cos if he cnt provide money 4 leeds what is he going to do with a team tht really needs the money

anybody know when somma is back from injury?

Believable4 Unbelievable9

Good point, Would love to see him back, he's been out for over 12 months, so hopefully he should be back before the end of the year, will lack match fitness though

Agree0 Disagree0

Last I heard it was supposed to be the end of October but not heard any update on that for a while now.
PeteMOT

Agree0 Disagree1

He's back running again and Warnock said, he hoped to see him in action in. Class player! Having Somma back will be like signing a player for 1.5 t 2 million, thats how i rate him.
COME ON SOMMA WE'VE MISSED YOU!!
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

Read somewhere yesterday that he is hoping to be back by everton game , he told someone at reserve game when nunez got injured, will be like signing a quality striker getting him back

Agree0 Disagree0

I have a feeling it'll be another Paddy, you know he has the ability but he'll have no pace to compete.

Agree1 Disagree0

I spoke to him after the game on Saturday and he said he was a month away from a return.

Agree0 Disagree0

Somma was never really that quick before his injury so i cant see that been a problem

Agree0 Disagree0

To the guy that says he also spoke to somma on saturday and that he said he was due back in a month, What was he waring? coz im the guy that spoke to him originally and he deffo said he maybe back for the everton game.

Agree0 Disagree0

He was wearing a yellow and navy training t-shirt, and a baseball cap. I spoke to him at the bottom of the away fans steps going up to the car park.

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats funny he was waring a navy sweater when i spoke to him and he went straight towards the back of the tunnel. dp

Nobody has mentioned the rumour that was goin around on Sat,I heard it from a member of staff the rumour was,the reason takeover is taking so long is because ken Bates is desperate to keep 20% of the club,then if we went up it would be worth 4 or 5 times what its worth now just a thought,sounds like a trick Bates would pull.

Believable27 Unbelievable11

No body mentioned it coz youve just made it up

Agree1 Disagree0

No I haven't,if you went to the games and actually become a familiar face with the staff you will now and again get to know some rumours,oh by the way this rumour was from a member of the superstore staff, same one who told me 2 month ago that the takeover would not happen because of certain clauses Mr Bates wanted in the contract.

Agree0 Disagree0

Member of the superstore staff ! they dont even know hw much a leeds shirt costs let alone what the hold up is with the TO.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why keep 20% and not 30%?

Agree0 Disagree0

If him keeping 20% of the shares bothers the potential owners i am very very worried about them. This is why, they would still be majority shareholders and Bates would have no say whatsoever on how the club is run. Secondly the only way that 20% would affect them is if they sold they would obviously have less to sell and if we got to prem and they sold they would make less profit, apart from them wanting to resell for more it would have no effect. As a result if it is stalling on that it just looks like another business project but with different owners this time.

Agree0 Disagree0

October i think mate

Can we now get a new song for Becchio? Preferably one that doesnt include the name of another teams player

Believable16 Unbelievable17

I love that song but would be nice to have 2 songs.
mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

OH HE'S OFFSIDE SO MUCH ITS FRIGHTFUL,
BUT HIS GOALSSS ARE SO DELIGHTFUL,
AND WE DON'T WANT HIM TO GO
BECCHIO BECCHIO BECCHIO

Agree0 Disagree0

I think the Berbatov related song is a classic...he still costs less than Berbatov, and he will still score more goals so I don't see a problem!

Ho about creating some decent songs for the new boys?

Agree0 Disagree0

He Scores to the left
He Scores to the right
Luciano Becchio
Makes Messi look Sh!te

Agree0 Disagree0

Luciano, Lucianooooo, costs lees than Andy Carroll, And he scores more goals

Agree0 Disagree0

Luciano, luciano, cost less than van persie and he scores more goals.

Anyone else notice we have been giving away free home tickets for the West Stand, trying to make it out like it's secret?

Its like theyre desperate to keep up appearances.

Believable2 Unbelievable23

Where does one get some of these free tickets?
AidanMOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes, i'm all for that, pray tell where one can acquire these free tickets. We should be able to fill the stadium with those available

Agree0 Disagree0

All clubs do, I know derby give to local schools, Toyota car factory, and free with mobile contract at buy mobiles! So there average gate is a lie at the end of season anyway

Agree1 Disagree0

I've read some far fetched stuff in this site but this one...

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds have always given a percentage of tickets for free. Local schools an charities have been included for over 15 years for people who cant afford tickets and to get kids supporting leeds. that I can remember. It's not a new thing.

Update.

I understand that this week is make or break for the takeover. The parties are meeting up to thrash out some agreement around the indemnity - this being what has held up the signing. The source this is from appears to be quite hopeful that there is a deal to be done.

So let's pray for the resolution we all want. We will certainly hear from the Supporters Trust this week, I would guess.

Believable35 Unbelievable15

They say the talking is done just make your mind up time

Agree0 Disagree1

Writing in his programme notes for Saturday's game with Blackburn, Bates, who also rubbished national newspaper reports last Thursday that GFH Capital would complete a takeover świthin the next 72 hours' said: There is a lot that goes on, and is going on behind the scenes, which unfortunately cannot be put in the public arena.

However, rest assured that having spent the last seven and a half years clawing the club back from the abyss, I am determined that when I move on, my legacy will be that the club is in safe hands and will take Leeds United to the next level.

Meanwhile, the club will continue to be run along proper lines, despite the clamour of the small minority. There are śnone as deaf as those that won't hear' that this has to be the case.Ł

Agree0 Disagree0

Are bucks fizz buying us out??

AidanMOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Indemnity was sorted at the weekend apparently and this has been reported on a number of sites the issue is now who actually owns the ground as "the current owners" want to keep the "current arrangement" eg the club paying rent and the new owners want to buy the ground outright as part of the takeover, so how they resolve this one is anyone's guess

Agree0 Disagree0

Meeting to be on Thursday according to Radio LEEDS

Agree0 Disagree0

If it to do with buying the ground then I wouldn't have thought it would be a major issue. I have always been under the impression that there is a fixed price for the buy-back, ú14M.

Agree0 Disagree0

Chatting with mates in the pub last night and talking about the takeover. One of my mates had the thought that all/some of the negative rumours about Bates and the takeover could have been started by the company wishing to takeover Leeds. There aim would be to get more fans angry at Bates, make him look like the bad guy (yes not too tricky) and push him to sell quicker. Highly plausable idea and also completely deniable with no comeback for the buyer. Like I said just pub banter but thought i'd see what you guys thoughts are

Believable6 Unbelievable38

Ken bates could not give 2 hoots about us Leeds fans all he is interested in is money.

He stated for years he hated us and would onwhat ever it takes to get us banned from football. Then he buys us. Tells you'll you need to know.

Leeds is a cash cow to him and he will want every envy he can get.

And to all those who said he saved us you tell me what he did to save us. He has sold all our best players and pet the money. Sold all our ticket sales for 2 years for loans. Cost us millions in court cases and now wants tens of millions for our club.

Agree0 Disagree0

Love it- beat him at his own game

White teeth

Agree0 Disagree0

And would you do different? A lot of "fans" saying this but given the same situation a lot of you would do the same because its human nature to want more.
