I for one hope beckford does come but can't see it, however apparently George Boyd is a done deal !

Believable15 Unbelievable7

If we got both of those lads in, would show real intent this year. These are the calibre of players we should be looking at.

LUFCTeej

Agree0 Disagree0

If George Boyd does come into Leeds that would be a great player to fight for a winger position.

A reliable source has confirmed to me that David Norris
is in talks with warnock. But Norris is reluctant to leave
pompey.
Plus I'm a SWFC fan & mccormack been linked wi us is he any good?

Believable9 Unbelievable16

He hasnt been linked with you and yes he's great

Agree0 Disagree0

If you have the money to afford him. I'm guessing the link is made due to Dave Jones. Would cost about 1.5 -2 mill to prize him away though.

Agree0 Disagree0

McCormack to swfc ha ha ha that's so funny! Never going to happen :0)

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry but you won't get him he was our top scorer last season. Can see the link with Dave jones but thanks for the rumour anyway

Agree0 Disagree0

MacCormack moving to Wednesday ? Get real guys. Aint worth further intelligent discussion

Agree0 Disagree0

1.5 to 2 mill, have you lost the plot. I know he had a bad start with leeds but once settled 19 goals. when at cardiff he scored 20+, so got to be worth around 3.5 to 5 million with age. strikers are worth more than defenders and mills was worth 4 to 5 mill. mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

My mate(taxi driver)took McCormack home after last weeks end of season do, he asked him what he's doing next season? McCormack told him he's had a very good offer from a European team...(NOT A SOUTH YORKS TEAM...)

Agree0 Disagree0

Yea but he was hammered after the end of season do... (theres pics to prove it haha) he was probs taking the piss

Agree0 Disagree0

No reason for him to go to the Owls. Only way he leaves is to a higher div and then it would cost 2.5m minimum

Agree0 Disagree0

No pace and gives the ball away too cheaply,can't fault his effort or workrate though.he looked half decent in a very poor leeds team,warnock already stated that he will be a squad player next season,as apposed to starting

Agree0 Disagree0

And i am pretty sure the reason why McCormack left Cardiff was because of a fall-out with Dave Jones, so you really think he would go to Sheff Wed? haha

Agree0 Disagree0

He fell out with dave jones,he would not go even if leeds were prepared to let him go

Agree0 Disagree0

Never said mccormack was gonna happen. Just
a rumour going round cos of Jones's link wi mccormack at cardiff. But obviously not true if they don't like eachother

Agree0 Disagree0

McCormack rumour is not true, Jones does not rate him but Warnock is trying to offload. Wednesday have also been linked with Clayton but again think it is agents trying to drum up business.

Agree0 Disagree0

As a Leeds fan it pains me to say this but we have become a laughing stock under Bates. If you look at how fans if much smaller teams than ourselves view us, its very depressing. We've become known for being unable to retain quality and focusing on everything but football, which is financed in an absolute storefront.

This summer is crucial. The club has had so long out of the Premiership that we no longer have the pull to attract players we once did. Players coming through now will know us not as a mighty force, but a Championship and League 1 club. Come on Ken, football first this summer or there won't be any fans left to fill those executive boxes!

Believable14 Unbelievable7

The Club can go into the lowest league possible, we have the greatest fans and they will never leave but i know what your getting at lol

Agree0 Disagree0

Who cares what other clubs think, we never have done before so lets not start now. We are all Leeds United and we will be through thick and thin. I personally cannot wait to get back into elland road next year and support the boys, to hopefully promotion. MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Mr happy house - go on do one back to the land of gloom and doom - we dont want yer

Agree0 Disagree0

Since when have we cared what people think of us.Sgt Warnocks Barmy Army! MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Can see what your saying, love leeds and as a london based leeds fan you guys at home every week fill me with pride best support win or lose, champs or complete s**t, but londoner bates is a s**tbag, trying to rip heart out of leeds, look at other teams norwich and saints kept players and gone up leeds give players away or sell for nothing we are a feeder club to norwich i mean come on. trust NW and think he is the man to take us back to where the fans week in week out desverve to be mot

Agree0 Disagree0

All chelsea fans dont think that about bates!! if it wasnt for him the fans wouldnt own the pitch and wouldnt have a say in there move look at some of there sites and ask the question! if he does the same as chelsea and sells us to a billionaire we will all thank him then!

Agree0 Disagree0

Bates has no choice but to spend this year ,or even the most deluded leeds fans will admit we will be avoiding relegation not pushing for the premier league,i think we will see were we are in the next few weeks when we hear if Snodgrass ,white etc agree to stay,rumour im hearing is Snodgrass is waiting for next summer on a free ,but Bates needs the cash for a war chest.

Agree0 Disagree0

Agree fully with last comment but weve been the laughing stock for a long time now leeds has been the model about how a club should NOT be run but if we keep goin back well never push forward weve come a long way i hope we stop giving away our best players were not even making a profit when we sell them instead of running up a legel bill and offering free meals chasing down ex chairmen like mervyn levi bates should be putting the fans hard earned cash into the team wat ever happens ed u cant say its predictable at elland road!

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds are the biggest club in the championship without a doubt!

Agree0 Disagree0

What neil warnock is going it good at the moment less wages(11 players gone i think) the more we can spend on players =D

And we was spending 9mil a year on wages and bates added 2.5 mil to that so say what you like he saved the club in my eyes. simon got the wrong players and sold the wrong players

Agree0 Disagree0

heard that Leeds have been linked with paddy mccarthy

Believable2 Unbelievable3

Well he's ex-Leicester, which fits in with most of the defensive signings of late.

Agree0 Disagree0

Carlos cuellar just been released. Can play centre and full back. Worth a punt? Your thoughts?

Believable13 Unbelievable3

Very good player, but pretty certain he's going back to Spain.

Agree0 Disagree0

I had this guy in my fantasy football team last year and I remember first game after I signed him he played outstanding and got man of the match but then was dropped for next game and didn't play again for most of the season. I have not noticed him much lately though as I just could not watch borin villa this year. I think he is rated at about 4 mill but as u say he is out of contract but im sure wages would be an issue.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes a class act! he was great at rangers too and wages shouldnt be too much of a problem if warnock rates him as there is no initial fee but martin o'neill may pick him up for sunderland

Agree0 Disagree0

Cuellar worth a punt? he would be a good championship player no punt needed

Agree0 Disagree0

I would be more than happy, but his wages are too high

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought this was a good shout a month or so ago, but read somewhere he was moving back to spain. Possibly espanol?

Agree0 Disagree0

He use to be a really good player at Rangers, and I think he's become pretty popular at Villa, so If he came to Leeds for the right price, id be bouncing off the ceiling.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be a fantastic signing no questions asked but a tad unrealistic...there undoubtedly will be a lot of interest in him from PL clubs and abroad

Agree0 Disagree0

Espanyol? Saw them the other week get hammered by S gijon . They are league 1 standard. Couldn't pass ball to their own players. Better off at ER :)

Agree0 Disagree0

My mate who is a Villa fan is gutted he has been released. He would be great for us but wage demand must be too high

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2012 18:22:11
Beckford has come to Leeds united on a 3 year deal and he has taken a pay cut as well

Believable17 Unbelievable17

Where has this been announced?..er...nowhere!, not happening mate. Though i do hope im wrong, would love to see him back.

Agree0 Disagree0

Funny that, lad i know says he left for holiday last week! Flew out of |Birmingham Airport, so wont be joining...just yet!

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2012 18:08:00
why are people piping on about montomery? he isnt up to championship standard hence why he's at sheff utd

Believable13 Unbelievable4

I agree he cant get into a champ team so why would he get into our team

Agree0 Disagree0

He turned us down as he got better wages at sheff utd .

Agree0 Disagree0

Who the hell is montomery don't you mean montgomery and the other lad don't you mean he carn't get into a league 1 team. come on lads he's got to be better than brown for me and younger. he was sheffs best player the year before. new manager comes in and the team changes and players find there not his cup of tea, but that doesn't make them s++t. mot4life

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm undecided on whether this would be a good signing or not?! However you have to take into account that players relish a new challenge n if any manager can get the best out of him surely its Warnock?!

Agree0 Disagree0

Midfileder George Boyd to sign for Leeds after being told he can leave Peterborough United, Boyd was a prolific goalscorer in the 2010/11 season when playing along side Mikiall-Smith upfront, sinch Mikiall-Smith completed his move to Brighton Boyd has dropped to Midfield.

Believable13 Unbelievable6

It wasnt boyd it was mclean who went to hull dont let rubbish get in the way of facts boyd is and always was a winger

Agree0 Disagree0

So has Boyd come to leeds or is it just Pearce who is still the 1st signing?

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2012 17:43:47
Hi all, reading through other on-line forums and rumour pages We are the laughing stock of this division with things being said like we cant afford to keep our own player never mind by new ones. Well people I have news for them, Leeds have completed the signing of one already high quality defender and more are on the way so watch out boys ;) WE ARE PREMIER LEAGUE (soon)

Believable11 Unbelievable5

I am not leeds fan but a club with no debt,can spend 7mill of their own money and pay transfer fee in full for that player from Pompey are pretty healthy when it comes to finance.

Agree0 Disagree0

I say ignore them and let em laugh. they dont know whats in store for them next season, and this time next year, we'll be laughing our way up to the premier league

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2012 16:37:55
Anybody think Matt Connolly from QPR could be on his way to leeds?good centre back worked with Warnock before,available for transfer and not on massive wages.was immense in QPRs title winning season.Why wouldnt Warnock go get him to partner pearce?it all makes sense

lonergan
halford pearce m connolly white
green derry
snodgrass diouf
beckford becchio

Believable13 Unbelievable7

Agree with this post. He as experience having been on loan at Reading.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why are people putting white as defender? he is not good at the back and has always been an attacking player with good pace (but cant finish) NW has played him as an attacking right winger not left back. White on the way out for the rat but that siad i think the rat would do well and become a fans favorite

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2012 15:35:07
This isn't a rumor. More hoping some more intelligent people with footy knowledge can help me out. I thought we couldn't buy anyone until the transfer window opens unless they are out of contract or from a foreign team. Have to say im happy we are but can someone please explain this to me. Cheers {Ed007's Note - The English domestic transfer market opens officially on the last day of the season (May 13th for EPL, I would say after the play offs are concluded for the Championship etc) . The international market opens on the 1st of July.}

Believable7 Unbelievable1

Thanks ed. i dint think it opened until june time ish. that clears it up

Agree0 Disagree0

I have been friends with Neil warnocks son for many moons now since our school days. He has informed me that diouf will be announced on the 1st of July when is contact with Doncaster has officially expired, also matt mills won't be coming ti Leeds as he is on 25k a week at Leicester and won't take a pay cut. Robert Snodgrass won't sign a new contract and will wait and see what position we are in come january

Believable14 Unbelievable14

Somehow i cant imagine warnocks son knowing about the details of internal affairs at LUFC

Agree0 Disagree0

No of course not, not with james being a football agent too. he isnt allowed to work on any transfers involving any of his clients and the club, but is allowed to discuss things with his dad. ie greedy players (mills) and done deals (diouf), unfortunately i havent seen him this weekend but we are playing golf soon so i'll try to find out more

Agree0 Disagree0

Ken does not allow players and staff members to talk out side the club i think he banned the players on twitter i think at 1 point

Agree0 Disagree0

If it was anything that could damage any deals then I am sure he would not of said anything, the diouf deal is signed and mills is definately a no go. Upto you if u believe it or not

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2012 13:31:59
Not liking the sound of Montgommery and Spurr coming in, they're just not good enough. However, i like the sound of Joel Ward to partner Clayton (he will stay i think) in CM

Believable11 Unbelievable9

Spurr and montgomery are not as bad as you think montgomery is old but would be good fit holding midfielder for a good two seasons

Agree0 Disagree0

Spurr is very good left back and at the right age only 24 also i think montgomery would be a good squad player for us far better than brown can't believe he's still there

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2012 13:13:01
The next players to arrive at ER!

Clingan - Coventry
Spurr - S Wed
Montgomery - S Utd
Ward - Portsmouth
Mills - Leicester (depends if we can sell Clayton to raise the transfer needed)
Also Snograss wont be sold for anything less
than 4-5m, otherwise in Jan 2-3m?

Believable10 Unbelievable10

Nick Montgomery keeps getting linked every transfer window like a bad penny but might be more possible now Warnock is at ER..

Agree0 Disagree0

Spurr is @ Doncaster. If your facts are inaccurate, what should we make of your rumours?

Agree0 Disagree0

Clingan because he was part of graysons plans im guessing same old what bout smith may as well add him too

Agree0 Disagree0

Snodgrass will not go for 4 mil and go for more in jan if he plays ace why would he go for less if he is having a good season

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2012 12:30:05
Everyone saying about paddy kenny coming to Leeds, I would love to see Alex smithies in goal next year or Scott loach

Believable9 Unbelievable11

Nah, Smithies is v poor. Girlfriends a Season ticket holder at Udders and when he got back in the team everyone wanted him out for Ian Bennett! - Alex McCarthy for me

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe loach but not smithies hes a joke, not as good as big andy lonergan

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd love to see Andy Lonergan in goal next year. Better than anyone mentioned. Form inevitably dipped due to lack of competition as with Clayton.

Agree0 Disagree0

The only man I would have is Alex McCarthy. We should break the bank for him never mind clowns like Smithies and Kenny and of course our own Lonergan

Agree0 Disagree0

I dont think lonners is a clown. i think hes done pretty well considering the appalling defence thats been playing in front of him

Agree0 Disagree0

No way, not scott loach he is a joke he fumbles everything. He is rubbish!

Agree0 Disagree0

Loach and Smithies are terrible. would rather have Kenny between the sticks any day of the week

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm happy with Lonergran, provided we can sort the defence out

Agree0 Disagree0

Buying a new keeper would be a waste of money. needs to be spent in better places.

Agree0 Disagree0

Lonergan is good he had half a season and are def was poor

Agree0 Disagree0

Joe Lewis from Posh would be a very good back up at least, and hes getting released so wouldnt cost anythink

Agree0 Disagree0

06 May 2012 12:28:18
I must say Jason Pearce fits into the leeds united jacket very well. Great signing, sort of player that could be our captain when we are back in the big time! MOT

If we are promoted next season through autos or play offs, who will care whether we signed ex players, Sewer Rats or ex leeds players, and I don't think Colin and Ken will care either. Whoever comes in has to be got behind. Warnock knows what he is doing. We are never going to become a fortress again whilst we are booing our own players. Would you rather be in the Prem with a contoversial team or in the Championship (or lower) with safe politically corrects signings. Robbo 77

Believable16 Unbelievable3

The thing is Diouf won't get us into the PL anyway. Our team hates him, what makes you think that will change when he's swanning about Thorp Arch like he owns the place?

Agree0 Disagree0

I totally agree Diouf is a nasty piece of work and wouldn't be my choice. But my point was meant to be, that next season I hope the fans get behind who ever comes in, because they can play well and not cause a bad atmosphere because of who they are or used to play for. I wouldn't care if they brought in Gary Neville (ok a bit too far) as long as they work hard enough to get Leeds promoted. Robbo 77.
