Was at the Farsley game today.. Me and my mate were talking to a south African guy who was the agent for the 2 trialists and Max Gradel. He wouldn't tell me the names of the trialists other than they were German and the lad who played up front was an ex Stuttgart player and he was 29. I tried to prize info out of him but he said if Leeds didn't want him, be was off to Blackburn to have a trial there. I asked about Max and if he wanted to stay. All he said was 'we'll see' he did indicate in a fashion it was all down to £££ though. The lad who played up front was very good and he scored a hat trick. Grella got the other in a 4-0 win.. Saw Somma too but not to speak to.. By all accounts Mendy is a non starter...For now. He has gone back to France.

Yep.. Was definitely Felix Luz.. He moaned more than Kilkenny Lol. Played well though.

Agree0 Disagree0

Another nobody for nothing, need to sign four or 5 quality players soon or back to league 1 we go

Agree0 Disagree0

Another nobody like Becchio, or Snodgrass, or Gradel...

Agree0 Disagree0

If we dont sign Mendy then SG is a complete muppet...

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio 2 in 3 striker at previous club, Snoddy highly rated Scot youth, Gradel stared at L1 level with Bournemouth on loan from Leics, these guys migt be alright but the others weren't nobodys

Agree0 Disagree0

If i remember correctly in the early 2000s we had a team of somebodys but look what that got us nearly no club and league one for a few seasons yes we need to spend what we can afford but not on has beens

Agree0 Disagree0

I was also at the game and can back up original poster as I was stood a few feet away.

Agree0 Disagree0

Becchio & Gradel were nobodies. Luz has been fairly prolofic beforehand

Agree0 Disagree0

Yep we should only spend what we can afford.

Trouble is we can afford millions but our Chairman will only spend pennies.

I'm still shocked when anybody trots out the old line about how paying an average Championship wage is somehow the same as paying 7m for Seth Johnson. are some of our 'fans' really so simple?

Agree0 Disagree0

I was also at the game and both the german players shone throughout. Only Farsley but Felix put all his goals away well good to see he wanted the ball at every opportunity MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

According to the YEP tonight (Sat 06 Aug) Mendy is back in France but a deal is being looked at :)

The 3 trialists at Farsley are named as Ibrahim Maaroufi & two Germans Rot-Weiss - striker Felix Luz & midfielder Dennis Grote.

Of the 3 (on paper at least) Grote looks best.

Believable9 Unbelievable4

He was average... The striker was the best ..

Agree0 Disagree0

Great if Mendy signs.

Its really obvious that with the defence watertight, an abundance of quality centre midfielders and McCormack & Paynter scoring goals for fun what the side is really crying out for is a 4th winger, especially one who has played the last 8 years in the mighty Czech league.

If Mendy signs he's a cheap replacement for the departing Snodgrass.

Why on earth would we have a squad with 3 right wingers (4 if you include Max) and only one right back and 2 centre midfielders?

Agree0 Disagree0

Luz and Grote are s**t

Is it a joke????????????

MOT from Germany

Agree0 Disagree0

Reinaldo Is the striker on trial realy good player full Name Reinaldo Elias da Costa

Believable3 Unbelievable17

Bulls$*t the trialists were Ibrahim Maaroufi,Felix Luz (Hat trick) and Dennis Grote

Agree0 Disagree0

Def not him.. I was talking to the players agent at the Farsley game. He was German and he was White for starters.

Agree0 Disagree0

He is a Brazillian/Australian, curretly plays in Qatar

Agree0 Disagree0

Saw game looked a decent player but heard his name was Felix Luz

Agree0 Disagree0

Sick to death of s**t freebie bates out get behind this drive bates out or we will be back in league 1

Agree0 Disagree0

When will you idiots get it into your heads that there is no point in a 'Bates out' campaign as HE OWNS THE CLUB The only way bates goes is if someone buys him out.

Agree0 Disagree0

Having watched him play LIVE for the Brisbane Roar back in 08/09, he's a bloody naff player

slow as all hell and very wasteful - 9 goals in 45 apps sets that out clearly (in a league where it was about league 2 football at best)

Agree0 Disagree0

Half-time ... Farsley 0 - 3 Leeds. Grella and trialist got 2. (looks good)

Believable4 Unbelievable1

Dennis Grote trialist got 2 assists and felix luz trialist got 2 goals according to wiki

Agree0 Disagree0

Both players looked ok Felix knows how to finish

Agree0 Disagree0

Actually Luz scored 3. I was at the game, he looked very sharp but it is hard to judge because of the level of opposition, would probably put away the chance paynter fluffed tho

Agree0 Disagree0

Montgomery & Quinn starting for Sheff Utd so I guess they are not signing for Leeds this weekend

Believable9 Unbelievable1

Lol Montgomery told us to get lost last year when he saw the wages on offer.

Can't blame him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Gradel and snoddy both started but i wouldn't 100% rule them out of going, especialy after that performance snoddy's head was in the premiership and gradel not much better tbh

Agree0 Disagree0
