I work in a bookies and alot of talk and some money on next Leeds gaffer to be Mark "sparky" Hughes should Larry either walk or be pushed. Don't know what to think of it

Believable16 Unbelievable20

Yep - deffo - Bates and Hughes worked at Chelsea when it was British - so come on Larry you better pull some results out or I see Mark
Hughes in within the month - good to have competition you always say Larry - so come on Fella MOT

Agree0 Disagree0

Rubbish. Bates knows he himself is at fault more than Grayson. And Mark Hughes is tipped to go to Blackburn.

Agree0 Disagree0

Whats another word for testicles? coz thats what this is!!

Agree0 Disagree0

I posted originally, I'm a Leeds fan and agree bates is more to blame than SG, but I only posted what I know I'm not saying it's a mates uncle who heard down the pub the info came after several flutters last night. Personally I want SG to take us up and he will do with some sound investment. It's not boll*cks

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes, and I'm sure he will love to work with no money and take a wage drop.

Agree0 Disagree0

No way poyet will be first choice people can say why leave brighton but he would.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why would poyet leave brighton now for us? not a chance. unfortunately

Agree0 Disagree0

Would it be rather audacious if we tried to sign Aiden McGeady in January?

Believable3 Unbelievable21

Definately since he's a regular player at Spartak moscow {Ed007's Note - Zenit St Peterburg were ready to pay 30 million euros for McGeady according to the Russian press.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I think it would be rather audacious for us to sign anyone!

Agree0 Disagree0

Should try to sign paddy mccourt instead, he is amazing

Agree0 Disagree0

Definitely, i'd say he's on about 80 grand a week, knock the naught off.. thats more our sort of wages. {Ed045's Note - And Half it as Bates likes to say.

Agree0 Disagree0

Keep eating those funny shaped mushrooms. I wish it could be true but look where we are ???

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds united to Sign on loan a left back and a cmf by this Friday .
Pugh and spearing

Believable10 Unbelievable16

Any emergency loans being done are either 28 days or 93 days maximum. Surely it would be wise to sign players on loan at the end of this month to take the loan period up to 31/12 so that any good performers can be signed right away the next day! Anyone brought in on loan now will go back to their clubs in mid December crucially counting them out of the Xmas fixtures and if they have impressed will surely receive better offers from elsewhere (knowing our inabilities in the transfer market!) {Ed045's Note - Very very good point.. probably the best comment I have seen on here.

Agree0 Disagree0

Danny Pugh to be back at Leeds by late Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning.

Believable12 Unbelievable15

Hope not it'd give me nightmares all over again
what does Ed think? {Ed045's Note - I'm not sure, he wasn't the worst, but at the same time, he wasn't the best.

Agree0 Disagree0

He won't sign today or tomorrow as the loan window doesn't open until Thursday.

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes not a step forward though is he ed? myself i thought he was too weak and easily pushed off the ball!! he is a 2nd division player for me!

Agree0 Disagree0

I think he could slot into the left back role nicely though lads, I think Aidy's doing quite well there though in fairness albeit the naievity he showed in the build-up to his red card

Agree0 Disagree0

This would be same danny pugh that played with us when we where relegated from the championship so how is that a step forward

Agree0 Disagree0

We ARE a 2nd divison team!!

Alot of good players went down with us, Pugh was OK in midfield, and went up with a very good Stoke side.

Agree0 Disagree0

Pugh was a young lad when we had him he is now more stronger and has more expireance from championship and prem to me he is worth a try {Ed045's Note - Agreed, I was stating what I thought he was back then, I have seen him a few times with Stoke and he looks a better, more confident player from when we had him as a youngster.

Agree0 Disagree0

SG is denying reports that a deal for
Nile Ranger fell through on deadline
day. Unfortunately given previous
history neither party can, in my opinion be trusted to be up front and honest. The problem for fans(one of them at least) is that you cannot comment on the 'pros and cons' of such a missed
signing and if the club were targetting the right kind of player because the truth is out there but we dont know where it is.

Believable6 Unbelievable8

I for one am glad we didnt get Ranger he's a knobber

Agree0 Disagree0

If it is true y r we trying to sign strikers when we r s**t at the back I'm no maneger but its defenders we need

Agree0 Disagree0

You are right. Grayson said Lonergan was always first choice target and werent going for any of the other keepers we had been linked with. Later Stockdale says he was close to joining leeds but they couldnt agree on a 24hr recall.

Agree0 Disagree0

Nile ranger was in Leeds, car seen on wetherby road very late on deadline day. Seems odd he was down here .

Agree0 Disagree0

First bit of truth to come out of Elland Road for a long time. SG should have said that there is no truth in the rumours that we are trying to sign ANYONE

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with the second reply. we are crap at the back and grayson is going after more strikers. H eshould realise that what happens when Becchio is fit

Agree0 Disagree0

Simon grayson reportedly trying to sign rangers winger john fleck. Fleck has been made available for loan by parent club rangers late last month. He beleives with two schottish internationals already in the squad, he may settle in quickly

Believable13 Unbelievable12

Fleck signed on loan for sheff u on deadline day. {Ed001's Note - no, it fell through as the paperwork was submitted late.}

Agree0 Disagree0

No he's not coz he plays for sheff utd on loan from rangers!

Agree0 Disagree0

Get your facts right he went to sheff utd on loan in the LAST TRANSFER window. {Ed001's Note - no he didn't, it fell through.}

Agree0 Disagree0

I thought Fleck went to the blunts with another young player from Rangers?

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats funny as he went to sheff u last week pal. try again

Agree0 Disagree0

I posted the 4th reply and i have just read that the deal fell through so apologies to the original poster

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant sign player on laon from scotland only in jan {Ed001's Note - you can, the SPL teams can't bring players in, but Football League teams can take players from them.}

Agree0 Disagree0

He was loaned to Sheffield Utd on deadline day

Agree0 Disagree0

Wow i love it when everyone think there are right but there not, he didn go to the blunts people because it fell through so get ur facts straight

Agree0 Disagree0

Who really cares? I can't see him improving our squad, and if that is the type of player SG is looking at then Bates has pocketted the Max money.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed - the words 'broken', 'record' and 'player' spring to mind having read these comments!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Im told He is crap anyway i work with 2 rangers fans and neither rate him

Agree0 Disagree0

I think he's a good player tbh and could add some depth to our squad, can play wing and upfront if im right?

Agree0 Disagree0

I originally posted this, and love how people were telling me to get my facts right, he's gone to Sheffield utd. Actually you get your facts right :L and to the reply above, he would add depth to our squad, he can play both on the wing and a different aspect upfront

Agree0 Disagree0

Thought fleck played for norwich must be 50 by now but if hes free sg and kb will sign him

Agree0 Disagree0
