Alan Smith. . Well as ive said on here already he can't sign soon enough for me. . What a great boost for the club/team/fans and im sure any costs incurred will be offset by the extra revenue his mere presence will generate through extra gate money and no doubt a serious push for promotion would have its own financial rewards were we too be successful. ! Stop bickering and move on you bunch of neanderthals we want/demand a successful team and as such should welcome ANYONE who makes us a better team and believe me hes much better than some we have. ! Lets just hope he doesn't look at this site and some of the negative s* t that's been written about him. .

Was in the Unicorn Inn in Carlton, near Rothwell, this weekend and Alan Smith came in. He'd been visiting his parents who still live in Rothwell, and had just been to the Leeds vs Middlesborough game. He mentioned that a loan to Leeds was on the table.

Thanks for your reply ed, thought it was fishy! Yeah as much as I'd like him to go back there are a million reasons why that may not happen. I'm sure it'll become clear sooner rather than later {ed's note - I am not sure it would be a good thing if he returned anyway, kid's education suffers enough these days, last thing they need is a teacher who is distracted!}

Now before you get all excited or jump down my throat he could be injured but. .Smithy isn't on the bench for Newcastle tonight. Eh?!
Lol
Anyone know why? Ed? {ed's note - as far as I can find out he is fit, but I don't want to get your hopes up for nothing, but the rumour is he is not going to be at the game because he is having talks over a move. That is just a rumour though and it might not even be Leeds if it is true.}

There are lots of rumours of Keith Southern coming in on a loan from Blackpool for the rest of the season. Box-to-box tough tackling midfielder, exactly what we've needed all season as he could let the likes of Howson get on with attacking and cover the defence. He's only made a couple of Premier League appearances for the Tangerines this season and Simon Grayson knows all about him from his time managing there. Just a rumour going around the Leeds and Blackpool message boards and forums.

To the person who said this;

Richard dunne being allowed to leave Aston villa after massive training spat today , for either loan or permanant.

We're set to launch a 550000 attack for Adam hammil in order to activate exit clause.

Sorry smith livers but he is in talks
with west ham after contract talks
broke down with leeds united .
SOURCE: HIS DAD.

Also Leeds are enquiring a permanent deal for sanchez watt , around the region of 2m aresenal are asking .
Also niel danns joining to replace Bradley Johnson .


Firstly stop taking rubbish about Alan Smith, contract talks have not broken down with Leeds United. He has confirmed with me that he is coming to play for Leeds.

Why the heck would he go to that sinking ship? If he turned Leeds down he'd be staying at Newcastle to fight for his place or going to Everton. I don't believe his Dad would say that they keep themselves to themselves his lot even though everyone knows where they live. .

Well I'm a massive Smudger fan and a regular at Leeds home games, I personally think Smudger is worth a punt. I am not bothered if fans have a go. At the end of the day if he gives us some bite in midfield and sets an example to the youngsters the fickle haters will change their tune.
Go for it Simon! :)

I'm hoping we will sign another Defender and a Defensive Midfielder.

Smith won't be coming back as half the fans won't accept him, I myself would love to see him come back. Richard Dunne won't be coming as he has just got back into the Villa team, I wouldn't mind seeing Woodgate come back but I would be very worried about his Injury and it would probably occur again while he is here.

I wouldn't mind seeing Wheater come in for a Defender, young and talented. Maybe Keith Southern to come in from Blackpool? Grayson knows him well, also got Man of The Match Performance in the play off final last season.

Michael Johnson could come on loan, I reckon he could do a decent job in the Championship, it would be where to fit him in, he's more of an attacking minded player.

I think there's some faint hope with Smithy since he's hardly played for Newcastle and they've signed up Hatem Ben Arfa and they've got younger players like Guthrie coming back from injury in Smithy's position. Whether Simon is genuinely interested and Smithy taking a wage cur would be enough I really can't say.

About the rumors of Ivo Pakalski and Robin Söder:
I don't believe this! It wolud sooo surprise If thay came to Leeds.
Ivo Pakalski will not leave Malmö FF this year and if he do, It will not be to Leeds.
In Robin Söders cases he is one of the most talentet players in Sweden and IFK Göteborg will not let him go cheap. Believe that Söder not are going to leve Göteborg earliest 2013 and don't think Leeds can afford him.

Leeds United Football Club are willing to take a chance on Leon Best.

The Republic of Ireland international has only been at Newcastle United since February 1, when they took him from Coventry City for a reported fee of £1million.

However, the 24-year-old has endured a miserable time on Tyneside, and has slipped to fifth choice in attack having failed to register a goal for the Magpies.

It is no surprise, then, that Alan Pardew is willing to offload Best during the January window, and it looks as though a return to the Championship is on the cards.

According to reports Leeds are lining up a £500,000 bid, although they could face competition from Forest for the Nottingham-born forward.

My Note: I hope the above isn't true, we need defence and midfield not attack!

Despite an abundance of strikers at the club, Leeds United are again being linked to a highly rated lower league goal scorer.

The man in question this time is Chesterfield striker Craig Davies. The Welsh international has struck 14 times this season ands according to the Daily Mail is on the radar of several Championship clubs. Doncaster Rovers and Sheffield United are also said to be looking at the 6ft 2 striker, whose contract with the Spireites is up at the end of the season.

Leeds have exhausted all avenues looking for central midfield reinforcements within the UK and have turned to Norway and Sweden to find new targets,

It's understood that Leeds are in the early stages of discussions with Stabæk Midfielder Henning Hauger who was thought to be very close to sealing a switch to Rosenberg though this deal seems to be some way off at this stage however Leeds United are also thought to be close to signing Malmo FFs Ivo Pekalski, Pekalski broke into the Malmo first team this season quickly becoming a driving force in the championship winning sides midfield, Leeds have also been watching many potential targets in the Scandinavian leagues over the last 6 months, last January window Leeds had Robin Söder on trial but opted not to offer the young Swed a deal a mistake Leeds will not be making again as Söder looks now to have his pick of Europes elite clubs.
