Speaking to a friend of a friend tonight and he seems to think Louis Saha as well as Royston drenthe will be arriving next week and the week after respectively.... I aren't too sure what to think so I thought I'd throw it out to the best rumours site going

MOT. - martyn1789

Believable7 Unbelievable79

All I can say is-I wish!

Agree1 Disagree0

Haha well I think it's clear that those two won't be joining us! Too good and too expensive

Agree0 Disagree0

I echo what he said, saha if fit would be decent in that league but really cant see it
mot ben

Agree0 Disagree0

I could something in the saha rumour but drenthe no.

Agree0 Disagree0

Keep Saha fit and he's as good as anybody - hope he's the 'icing' people are talking about.

We are in ongoing talks with sheff u over Stephen Quinn, live near Sheffield and blades fans seem to think he's choosing between us and the poodles!

Believable8 Unbelievable39

The biggest load of pony I've heard this year. Jog on mill wall fan.

Sy BsE leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

Seriously do we have to go there with these kind of players

Agree0 Disagree0

Let the poodles have him, dont do mixed yorkshire sides theres only 1 team in yorkshire

Agree1 Disagree0

And why not bring his mates Nick Montgomery, Alex Sabella and Brian Deane with him?

Agree0 Disagree0

Another Tony Currie would be a better bet

Agree0 Disagree0

Who are the poodles. Before you take the mick I'm only 14 so don't know all the different alternative nicknames for clubs yet. MOT

Warnock wants Nicky Maynard, George Boyd and Paul Taylor. Bids made for all of them but i don't think any of them will go through without the takeover being completed.

Believable17 Unbelievable25

Says who ? Have you seen the peterborough fans ? Crappin theselves over losin 2 best players

Agree0 Disagree0

I put a rumour on here a while back its taylor from shrewsbury we been scouting not peterborough.

NW will ice the cake with Thomas Ince for 2.5mill once the takeover is complete and funds are released. top, top player. {Ed013's Note - Tough call, Blackpool love him}

Believable14 Unbelievable44

Next julember then yeah ?
His dad will dispise him joinin us

Agree0 Disagree0

No problem with who his Dad is; but no chance of this happening -he was very impressive with Blackpool last year, and they have serious promotion aspirations of their own. Would only leave for a Prem or seriously wealthy Champ club (not us yet!). Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

He's a Liverpool player not Blackpool. Can't see it happening {Ed013's Note - Don't post rubbish. He is a Blackpool player}

Agree0 Disagree0

He signed a 2 year contract with Blackpool in August 2011. Think he is out of our price bracket

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2012 20:49:28
Leeds are set to offer Crystal Palace Ross McCormack plus £2.2 million for starlet Johnathan Williams. I saw this. It seems very unlikely, he is a midfielder, but what a good player

Believable2 Unbelievable61

2.2 plus mc.cormack ?
Get real mate we could get maynard &/or CMS for that

Agree0 Disagree0

Mac wants to stay,NW wants him to stay,so odds on hes staying.

Neil Danns is a target for Neil Warnock

Believable6 Unbelievable39

Signed for Huddersfield

Agree0 Disagree0

Neil Danns hasn't signed for anyone he is still at Leicester. Unless you are talking about Sean Scannell?

Agree0 Disagree0

Neil danns is surely too good for hudds, i really rate him

Simeon jackson to sign this week for undisclosed fee on 2yr contract.
1 of the "icings on the cake".
Hommill or boyd to follow

Believable15 Unbelievable34

Hammill would be a awesome signing, good hard working player, not a bad goal scorer too

Agree0 Disagree0

Is it likely that this move will be used to pay off some of the money owed to Leeds United for the transfer to Norwich of Robert Snodgrass ... 1.5m up front with the remainder on account?

JDC

Agree0 Disagree1

If this is true will be icing on the cake for me, if he could get in hammil aswell that would be amazing and think that would give us that push over the edge for promotion

Agree0 Disagree0

900K disclosed on the posting below

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes him and Hamill would be great additions, certainly a step in the right direction. Come on Neil

Agree0 Disagree0

Good call -Jackson contributed a flurry of goals late in Norwich's promotion campaign, and always looked dangerous, even when coming off the bench (a bit like the lad at Reading, Le Fondre). Knows where the goal is. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree1

Hi, threw this one out there a few weeks ago and was pooh-poohed. He is a fellow countryman of Rodolph, and a good player. (Yes I know he plays for Canada).

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2012 19:44:48
simeon jackson to leeds for 900k on 2 yr contract.

Believable12 Unbelievable34

He has lost his squad number at Norwich its gone to Snodgrass, so maybe some substance in this. Good player...!

Woody LUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

15th July 2010 he signed a 2 year contract with Norwich with the option of an additional year ... does that make him a free agent or was the option taken up? Source wiki.

Brown signs new one year deal (sky sports and official site)

Dont know what i think to him really.

Looking forward to who NW wants as his RW and striker.

Been impressed with his signings so far and he seems to get the best from his players. Look what players he got QPR promoted with

MOT!

Believable30 Unbelievable3

Well i suppose if there is one man who can guarentee red cards, michael brown is your man.

Agree1 Disagree0

Rodolph Austin he is a red card waiting to happen

Agree0 Disagree0

Obviously didnt go to Preston on Saturday did you. Green and Varney were terrible.

Agree0 Disagree0

"Rodolph Austin he is a red card waiting to happen"...........Technically austin is better and can offer more over the coming seasons but what can brown contribute? other than dressing room banter.

Agree0 Disagree0

Norwich City have accepted a bid for Simeon Jackson from an unknown Championship side. Might he be our new striker?

Believable35 Unbelievable8

If this is true he would be a good signing. ALways rated him. Dont no if norwich are willing/wanting to sell

Agree1 Disagree0

Hope this is true bags of pace and finds the net, really like him and think he would be better than beckford...fingers crossed

Agree1 Disagree0

+1^^. I was really impressed with him at gillingham and at norwich after that. Think he might be in his final year (signed a 2yr deal in 2010 with one year option). Would be a good signing. Fingers crossed

MOT

Agree1 Disagree0

Hopefully us, but surely we would have done it as part of the Snoddy deal?

Agree1 Disagree1

We are a well known championship side ! maybe they are talking about huddersfield. it would be a good signing though MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope it's us as I rate Jackson highly.But I have been told its palace who are in for him if it's true were are they getting money from thought they were skint. I think Dougie will turn out to be a top manager in the game.

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2012 17:29:56
I live next door to NW and whilst walking the dogs, i got talking to him. He told me he is looking to sign a RW and FWD! He spoke to CM-S yesterday and says he would love to join, wouldn't expand. Unless any offers come in for McCormack before Thursday then he will be offered a better contract and will be staying aswell as CM-S He said the RW position will be filled tomorrow or wednesday! He let slip that Boyd was one of the 'PLAYERS' that he had been in contact with, suggesting that there are more than 1. I asked him about Lewis Mcgugan (think he would be a good signing), and he said we have made an offer, apparently Forest are mulling it over, but was very positive. He wouldn't comment on Crainie, but did however say we will buy a better CB next week after takeover, and if it fails Crainie will be signed! Finally, The TAKEOVER, he said that it would be finalised fully by Thursday and they will announce it on Friday morning sharpish, so that we can crack on and buy a promotion worthy squad! Dave

Believable9 Unbelievable37

Talking rubbish mate, its ramadam, they wont take us over before the 20th

Agree1 Disagree1

I can't buy any of this, but 10/10 for imagination

Woody LUFC

Agree1 Disagree1

Well what a story, really funny to think you probably believe it Walter Mitty.

Agree1 Disagree0

Hope This is true but the Lewis mcgugan thing never heard anything about it, can believe he's made an offer with no speculation about it!

Agree0 Disagree1

I believe this, everything seems to make sense. I've heard rumours that snodgrass is coming back on loan! Another story i eard form a source at ER (Ken Bates) is that we're signing Djibril Cisse!

Agree0 Disagree1

Great imagination,just a heads up the Lewis mcgugan link has been doing the rounds for weeks,so not really no speculation.

Agree1 Disagree0

Just googled the 2 houses next to warnocks house and funny none of th owners name starts with dave ! jack a norry did turn up though

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha ha, he said an awful lot! What did the dog say? love stuff like this. Its partly what the rumours site is for!

Agree0 Disagree0

First of all ramadan doesnt mean anything, its business as usual although the hardcore muslim ive just spoken to regarding this subject states that each person is to there own but their worlds change for the period of ramadan i.e our night is their day and visa versa but business is still the same if they dont want to announce they wont and if what he says is right then that means nobodys awake in the white world for them to publicise ! That is until worlds meet again and everyones on the same wavelength

World's Greatest Liar

Pinocchio, Snow White and Superman are out for a stroll in town one day. As they walked, they come across a sign that read: "Beauty contest for the most beautiful woman in the world."
"I am entering!" said Snow White.
After half an hour she comes out and they ask her, "Well, how'd ya do?"
"First Place!", said Snow White.
They continue walking and they see a sign: "Contest for the strongest man in the world."
"I'm entering," says Superman.
After half an hour, he returns and they ask him, "How did you make out?"
"First Place!", answers Superman. "Did you ever doubt?"
They continue walking when they see a sign: "Contest! Who is the greatest liar in the world?"
Pinocchio enters.
After half an hour he returns with tears in his eyes.
"What happened?", they asked.
"Who the hell is this DAVE?", asked Pinocchio. JUST ABOUT SUMS UP YOUR POST DAVE...M.O.T

Agree1 Disagree0

Whats that noise? oh yeh it's the alarm clock!

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

I live next door to Neil Warnock and my name is Spartacus :)

Agree0 Disagree0

What dog does he have?

Agree0 Disagree0

No Im Spartacus

Agree0 Disagree0

No, I'm Spartacus. {Ed013's Note - No I am Spartacus}

Agree0 Disagree0

I cut NW's toe-nails every monday and he told me he was thinking about going to switzerland for a sex change. ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

Oh my god, what , Colin has got a dog. Where's the number for The Mirror, I'll get a fortune for this scoop - CTLUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

So the only player he wouldnt comment on is the one that has no club so no possible reason why he cant comment. And he will break the confidentiality clause before he will talk about cranie haha if youre gonna make sh*t up atleast try make it slightly believable..

Agree0 Disagree0

He has two standard poodles

Round leeds last night ended up in a lap dance bar nw was there with Messi signing with us on Friday and the lap dancers are going to be the half time entertainement

People close to inner circles at ER tell Beckford never been and will not be an alternative for whites. Not due to transfer fee or wage demand, just not the personality and skills that NW is looking for!

Believable35 Unbelievable20

At last a bit of sense !!hes the past ( and before all you die hard romantics say in g bout this n that) remember he left US when we could've moved forward with him in ranks!ye some say to premier but didn't rock the prem! Did he? Like Alan smiths 'return' never more than a great thought !! There's better much better players for smallish fees or on frees floating around at present and more soon when premier trims their squads ,so for gods sake drop the old sentimental returns of ex players in Neil we should all trust just look what and how he got QPR UP so back THE TEAM AND NW !! Wingy Mk LEEDS FOR LIFE MOT

Leeds to sign Jermaine Beckford and Royston Drenthe before Wolves game.
NW wont sign Cranie as takeover will soon be completed and he can have a better CB.
A deal for Lewis McGugan also looks likely.

Believable11 Unbelievable20

Beckford, Beckford, Beckford
When will it stop and where does it come from with npthing to back it up othere than your own wish perhaps?
please just let it go unless you eally know something

Agree0 Disagree0

Beckford wont be welcome ever again...

Agree0 Disagree0

Beckford is now as boring as Smith was. Time to move on me thinks.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds are NOT interested in Beckford. And why would Drenthe go to a championship club after having a good season at Prem level? Dunno why people make stories up

Agree0 Disagree0

Drenthe! No chance! Inter are interested.

Agree0 Disagree0

I wish you didn't talk bull..... I mean come on.... Royston Drenthe!! Give over telling porkie pies
Lee
M.O.T

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't see anything happening with Drenthe as he's a left sided player and NW has said he wants to sign a right sided player. Would like to see him at ERpersonally tho

Mattyk

Agree0 Disagree0

And who said that NW ? nobody knows when takeover will/if happen and if it will be complete before the transfer window. we now have the starting team and Cranie was only going to be a squad player so if we dont sign him we can easliy get somebody like him at very short notice, and save a few quid by not paying wages

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish end of mot

Agree0 Disagree0

What total and utter rubbish!

Warnock is apparently looking at taking nicky maynard on season long loan as he has used all his available funds for signings and beckford will not be coming home. from a close friend whos brother playing in academy team

MOT

Believable15 Unbelievable18

Can't believe we're banding round Becchio. He's been so good for our club over the last five years. Last pre-season he blipped and ended up not playing as much as we'd like but before that he has always been quality and he's been my stand out favourite at the club for years! Loyalty and commitment 2nd to none!

Agree2 Disagree0

I agree wholeheartedly with the 1st comment, I refuse to believe that we'd offer Becchio to other clubs.

Agree1 Disagree0

What available funds has he spent? More has come in than gone out in transfer fees so not in a worse position financially. He has signed solid squad players and needs some quality and pace to top it off now

Agree0 Disagree0

06 Aug 2012 14:36:25
Neil warnock is an admirer of Hammmill and if the Templeton negotiatins fail, he will be on his way to Leeds.

Ive heard from a reliable source We've made a bid for nicky Maynard. Might as well proved himself as a goal scorer at championship level and honestly doesn't stand a chance off first team football now Carrolls at WH.

Believable25 Unbelievable11

Carroll isn't at west ham. Still a Liverpool player

Agree1 Disagree0

I dont think there is any money for this deal to happen just now.

Agree0 Disagree0

Carroll isn't and never will be a West Ham player. Maynard is on a similar rate to Beckford too, so much as i'd like it i think it's a none starter.

Agree0 Disagree0

Carroll's not going to Westham

Agree0 Disagree0

If anything I could see it going through on loan with view to sign.

StevenLufc

Agree0 Disagree0

Carroll isnt leaving anymore

Agree0 Disagree0

Who is your source ? as BBC have confirmed WH have given up on carroll. so they are proving not to be very reliable

Noticed an comment further down, a fan that lives in Hampshire that wants to go to every game, well I have the same or similar problem, I want to get to every leeds Home game next season but live in Birmingham and currently do not drive, does anyone come up past me to go, happy to contribute towards petrol costs of course.

Becchio been offerd around.think poyet will have a go always said he rated him maybe swap for cms.Derby after a target man,Warnock rates Davis he said as much maybe a swap deal ther.

Believable10 Unbelievable48

NEVER!!
I hope not the mans a legend, I'd take Luciano all day long because lets not forget... he cost less than Berbatov, and, he scores more goals!
So there!

Agree1 Disagree0

Is this really true? Considering what Warnock said about him (said he was a massive fan of his, and he was obviously on his retained list) so I find it strange if he's being offered around. Surely keeping him, McCormack, Somma and getting someone else in would be his plan - JamesC

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock made a comment last week about Becchio, before the squad travelled to Norway, that "he might eventually realise that playing is easier than training" it made me wonder then if there was a bit of friction and Becchio had been playing on an injury and Warnock wanted him playing instead. Watch this space...

Agree0 Disagree0

This will be his 2nd pre season where has a failed to get enough fitness on board and as a result he didnt hit the ground running. I feel he has a motivation issue and Warnock knows it. he is very good back to goal and in the air but i think we need a little bit more pace

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree that Becchio is a bit of club legend and rightly so -top pro, has run himself into the ground and generally come up with the goods. Sadly, though I hate to say it, managers cannot afford to let sentiment get in the way of difficult, but important, decisions, and all the evidence over the past year points in the direction of Luciano now being past his best. Shame -but if these rumours are true, I for one find it hard to take issue with NW (whose judgement to date on players has, I think, been proved pretty sound). This is one of those debates that will run and run, though, which is to Becchio's credit and a sign of the affection in which fans hold him. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

I can't believe I am hearing Leeds fans slate Luciano Becchio. 'Past his best' - he is a quality championship striker he unfortunately got an injury last pre-season and still came out at the end of the season one of our top scorers. And if you didn't hear he played against Preston so he will be match fit for the season start. Luciano gives his heartfor Leeds United and does everything to repay the faith shown in him when he turned up at TA with his boots over his shoulder asking for a trial. He is one of the only faithful players we have got. Also if he did move on some Leeds Fans would slate him for not being loyal much like Howson and Snoddy have had to suffer!

Agree0 Disagree0

WHY do people like you put this kind of rubbish on here, if you ARE a Leeds fan you should be ashamed if not stick to your own clubs site or is it because its boring and dull.

Foxrat

Agree0 Disagree0

Absolute 100% bs, just another keyboard troll stirring things, not a leeds fan, and can't believe there are people falling for it

Agree0 Disagree0

As a Brighton fan, I would love to see him sign for us as he is a quality player and just what we need. But you lot would be MAD to let him go!

Agree0 Disagree0

'Slate' Becchio? Not me -read with care! Chapel A

Don't shoot the messenger but leeds in talks over boyd and taylor. My brother lives in pompey but die hard leeds fan and thats whats been mooted about, down that end of the woods. Lets hope atleast one of them is true. Ether one would fill one of the slots.
BARMY ARMY!!
mot4life

Believable10 Unbelievable8

Whats Pompey got to do with Boyd and Taylor - is there a Peterborough United following down there in the know!?!

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't worry about being shot ! That's a legitimate rumour.

Agree0 Disagree0

Think you meant to say posh not pompey?

I could see this happening tbh.

Agree0 Disagree0

Both excellent players -to get both would give us a real infusion of attacking talent. Chapel A

Agree0 Disagree0

Personally I think the takeover is done and will be announced once the squad is complete do we don't pay over the odds. If we could get both I'd be happy. Templeton would be a good signing if neither came through, but warnocks already talked him down. Hammil would fill snods boots, but again Dnt think it will happen. Really is anyone's guess as to who the two icing on the cake signings will be!
