Now that Sunderland are going to sign o'shea and wesley brown?

Killgallon back to Leeds anyone? I for one wouldn't mind if it was on season loan or permanent.

Would add SOLID quality and knows what Leeds are all about

Sign him up SG & GRANDAD

Believable31 Unbelievable9

I too agree he would help sure up the defence, but he has stated in interviews in the past that he never likes to look back and play for clubs he has already represented, he stated this when sheff utd wanted to bring him back from sunderland but he chose doncaster instead

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be a great signing to have and we would have 3 good centre halfs with paddy and obrien.

Agree0 Disagree0

No way, he's not the same Killgallon you obviously remember from 5 years ago. Saw him play for Donny last season, terrible

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jul 2011 22:39:21
Stockdale from Fulham would be a great signing, especially if we get loan with option to buy. He's a Leeds lad too so that might work in our favour.

Believable17 Unbelievable2

Yeh he would be a great signing but we need to sign a permanent number 1 not a loanie

Agree0 Disagree0

Right, so far Uncle Ken has said we are after 4 targets, but he will not state who. Fair enough. He has also said we have already missed out on three players who have gone to Premier League clubs C'mon Ken we could say we've gone for Messi and Tevez, but they they're ambitious and want to go elsewhere, It's a cop out. We can't attract the players we need cos we won't pay the wages. What worries me more than the lack of reinforcements is come the end of the transfer window teams come in with bids that can't be turned down for the likes of Max and Snoddy and we sell, cos the money is too good. We'll be in the loan Market like the end of last season.

Believable7 Unbelievable8

He didn't say we were only after 4 targets, he said we are in discussions with 4 currently

Agree0 Disagree0

I tend to agree about not having any financial clout. Lonergan, currently playing for a 1st division club has turned Leeds down because we can't meet his wage demands. If we can't satisfy his demands, how are we to tempt so called bigger names? Suddenly the list of Bates / Grayson (However many are on it) is diminishing. As for your second point about losing player nearer deadline day, I think you are correct. If we get more than our valuation we will sell, which will be no good near the transfer deadline.

Agree0 Disagree0

Just seen Brian Deane at Shell garage. Asked him about possible return and he just winked at me and smiled

Believable14 Unbelievable11

Lol how many of these players wink and smile when discussing moves

Agree0 Disagree0

I'd ave him back, saw him score 4 against QPR a few years ago. Bit worried about nowt coming in though

Agree0 Disagree0

I see Sven is now after Owen Hargreaves according to the BBC....no suprise there..

Believable12 Unbelievable3

Svens men gunna smash this league we dunt stand a chance this coming season..doom n gloom.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sven (or whoever) can say any number of "names" but that won't make them a team

Simon IS trying to build something to be proud of lets keep faith

Leeds til I die

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jul 2011 20:49:05
Spoke to Simon Grayson at Oulton Hall the other day - he was collecting his car, complete with a huge bandage over his leg...he wouldn't disclose much, said he'd be interested in Smithy cos he's a good battler, but that Leeds HAVE NOT made any contact with him yet and it would depend on wages, with Smiths having to somehow go down by about 30k a week.... His words were 'watch this space' and wouldn't mention any names but says that negotiations are ongoing...nice guy

Believable11 Unbelievable6

Simon grayson already said live on Yorkshire radio he has talked to Newcastle and alan smith, he also made it clear ther is many high hurdles to get over though.
He said it was woodgate who he has not talked too. All this is old news, it was on radio over a week ago

Agree0 Disagree0

No, SG has spoken to Smiths representitives he hasnt talked to Smith Directly.
Why are people so besotted, lets discuss real targets Smith is too greedy.

Agree0 Disagree0

WHY would we want smith back, seen him play for newcastle last year (the few times he got a chance) and he seemed very static(not very mobile), also he's now classed a crock. IF you want to see smith in a leeds shirt i suggest you go to youtube, lol. It would be a backwards step in my eye's. we need fresh blood not old blood. as for the ex player thing only BOWYER could give us some thing. the other 2 we'd be lucky to get 30 games between them.

Ls9

Agree0 Disagree0

Smith is past it, and before anyone says he was fantastic for Newcastle ask them what they think about his ability They are begging clubs to take him and his ridiculous wage of their hands. He'd be a problem for us if not directly then at the end of the season when we're left with his 45k+ wages

Agree0 Disagree0

He looked quite content at Newcastles training ground.
I don't believe he will be leaving SJP until his contracts up.
He's happy to remain collecting his big bucks for little imput other than being passionate and a cheerleader, which us fans could do and for much cheaper wages.
What a waste of 60,000 per week.
Greg-

Agree0 Disagree0

Yes - I am sure he discusses transfer policy / targets with complete strangers.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jul 2011 20:48:36
So who thinks Rachuba will be in goal for the first game of the season?

Sooty

Believable18 Unbelievable7

No he gone back to Barcelona I think. Plus he said Birmingham didant have the class players so I doubt we could get him.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yesssssss i'd take him anyway haa great experience, how old his he though?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jul 2011 20:32:42
I feel O'brien is underrated, i think at championship level he is one of the best.

Just throwing it out there :)

Believable22 Unbelievable11

He is went off the boil like most of the team after Xmas last season he was fantastic beforehand, just needs the right partner in central defense.

Agree0 Disagree0

You need to get sectioned a.s.a.p if you believe the rubbish your banging out.

Agree0 Disagree0

Give OB the skippers armband & I think he will make the defence (& rest of team) believe & work together.

Leeds TID

Agree0 Disagree0

Why bother posting something that is a total lie

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant find your video, has someone removed it? Can you add a link, would be very interested in seeing it.

Agree0 Disagree0

I wouldnt believe it if i didnt see it with my own eyes.quite good footage for a mobile phone

Agree0 Disagree0

Very unbelievable and ur obvs talkin bull if u cant even spell delph correctly

Agree0 Disagree0

Even I LOLed straight away and I'm usually given loads of stick on here for going on about you know who...but that was ridiculous ...
think we are all far too bored out of our minds re transfer inactivity to be posting this stuff eh ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

You know who.... who is he bloody voldemort. That IS ridiculous
Can we discuss REAL targets please

Agree0 Disagree0

Cant believe i even did a search for the video, knew it wouldn't be there as smith was training with the Geordies yesterday and i might be wrong but why would they be doing tours when pre-season has just started

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jul 2011 20:05:52

SG and David Stockdale spotted at the McDonalds opposite ER. They were chatting ( probably about the possible loan deal). The guy at the till told me Stockdale had a milkshake and that SG had chicken nuggets and a McFlurry. Hope the deal goes through. He is a Leeds lad and has looked a decent keeper at Prem level, plus England call ups.

Believable8 Unbelievable7

Ha ha ha .... It was a smokescreen.. We are signing Ronald Mcdonald..

Agree0 Disagree0

Best place to conduct transfer negotiations, McDonalds...

Agree0 Disagree0

Sounds about right for leeds at the moment doing deals in mcdonalds to keep the cost down hope SG had a meal deal other wise ken wont be happy.

Agree0 Disagree0

Stockdale on the bench tonight for Fulham in Europe - he must have his own private jet

Agree0 Disagree0

Mcdonalds, the cornerstone of any professionals diet......

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats good that rumour, There isnt a Mcdonalds near elland road, its burger king

Agree0 Disagree0

Have you actually been to ER? McD's is closer than BK ya muppet

Not as close as subway or chippy mind :-P

Leeds to spend 5 million on players this transfer window true or false, and who on

Believable6 Unbelievable27

Are you joking, Ken Bates wouldnt spend 5k let alone 5 million, but what makes me laugh is he has an apartment in Monaco, and he spends more on that than his club And i know for a fact if he got us to premier league he'd make millions It makes no sense.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jul 2011 19:13:17
Shaun Derry has not agreed a new contract at QPR
Crystal Palace are in Hot pursuit.
However If Leeds were to be interested He would definately be keen on a return. Always has said that Leeds are the best club he has ever played for. Would be an excellent signing too.

Believable11 Unbelievable12

I don't know about you Ed, but after what he did with palace and leaking our team list I wouldn't have him back.

Agree0 Disagree0

I dout that we are the best team he has ever played for, he played for qpr a few weeks ago, he got them promoted and he was on triple his wages at qprr so dont Bu11sh1t

Agree0 Disagree0

Shaun Derry was never proved to be the mole. I'm sure he played a few more times after that incident.

Agree0 Disagree0

Shaun derry is exactly the type of player we need right now. whatever the reasons he left before were to do with a previous manager and if he is available and would come he would be ideal for a season {Ed015's Note - ild welcome him back}

Agree0 Disagree0

I personally thought he was second rate when he was at leeds last time and now he appears slower, this would be an awful signing and a serious step backwards

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jul 2011 19:10:45

07 Jul 2011 19:02:30
I wonder how many of the people talking about how we need "quality" players could name QPR's back four from last season. Big names do not equal success. I'd rather see us sign proven Championship players than indulge in gambles on crocks and "prospects". I trust Grayson and his staff to choose the right players. Playing for Leeds takes a rare kind of mentality, a lot of the players mentioned on here as "must buys" won't have it. MoT

Believable12 Unbelievable4

I dont trust Grayson or his staff to sign the right players, he's got it mostly wrong so far

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree with the OP - names don't equal a team I think SG will build something to be proud of & able to stay up when we do go up

Agree0 Disagree0

Loving reading the "I can't believe we haven't signed anyone" posts, the transfer window has only been open a week

We just do our transfer business in private, so you don't hear about it until there is a conclusion either way

Believable8 Unbelievable9

The problem is we dont do any transfer deals and every player we are linked with get snaped up by other clubs. Time to wake up and smell the coffee mid table here we come.

Agree0 Disagree0

So it doesn't matter if we don't sign any players for a few weeks and they miss half of the pre season training, pre season friendlys with existing players etc.

Agree0 Disagree0

WHY DON'T SOME OF YOU 'FANS' GET THAT THE SOONER THEY'RE IN THE BETTER, THE TEAM NEEDS TO GEL OTHERWISE WE'RE LOOKING AT ANOTHER SLOW START TO THE LEAGUE AND WE ALL KNOW HOW THAT EFFECTED ARE POINT TALLY LAST SEASON

Agree0 Disagree0

I think our targets have been signed by other clubs, we'll be left with the dregs again

snodgrass to leave for Norich, 4.5million HOPE NOT

Believable4 Unbelievable23

Sure you read it right, cos you can't spell Norwich.

Agree0 Disagree0

Think the 8 million price tag put on him by Leeds means that this is another rubbish unfounded rumour

Agree0 Disagree0

We ant at least 8 mill for him so i doubt it

Why would Stockdale go to Leeds instead of Swansea....
its another dead duck

Believable5 Unbelievable13

HE WAS BORN IN LEEDS AND SUPPORTS LEEDS AND SWANSEA ONLY WANT TO BUY A KEEPER WHICH FULHAM DON'T WANT TO DO THEY WANT TO LOAN HIM UNTIL SWARZER LEAVES NEXT SEASON

Agree0 Disagree0

Because Swansea want to sign him, and we want to loan Fulham would rather loan him out as they want to keep him for the future get your facts straight.

Agree0 Disagree0

I would believe sky sports more than most, they are normally spot on

Agree0 Disagree0

Isn't it obvious? because swansea are a tin pot club and as a leeds fan, stockdale knows that.

Agree0 Disagree0

They were never going to buy anyone....all new signings will be loans...

Agree0 Disagree0

It doesn't say we have failed in agreeing terms IMO I want 3 keepers rachubka 3rd choice 2nd lonergan and 1st stockdale or smithes 1st just like last season and the ones before we have had 3

Skysports.com understands that Leeds have made a move to take Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale on loan.


Stockdale: Leeds link
Simon Grayson's side are searching for another keeper after allowing Kasper Schmeichel to join Championship rivals Leicester, and have considered a number of options.

The likes of Jerzy Dudek and Andy Lonergan had been in Grayson's thoughts, but Stockdale is now believed to be their top target.

Stockdale has earned good reviews for his performances over the past couple of seasons but remains behind Mark Schwarzer in the Craven Cottage pecking order.

The 25-year-old has also attracted interest from Swansea but Leeds will be hoping their desire to sign him on loan rather than permanently works in their favour.


Stockdale is much better that kasper finger crossed

Believable10 Unbelievable0

I would like to see stockdale at leeds but i cant see him agreeing personal unless fulham pay most of his wages. This wage cap leeds have in place by bates is fast becoming a joke if you pay peanuts you get chimps.MOT.

JACK CORK, ERIC LICHAJ, ALAN SMITH WOULD BE QUALITY ADDITIONS.

Believable12 Unbelievable4

Smith wouldnt be he is too overweight doesnt score goals and is always injured

Agree0 Disagree0

Thought cork was going to saints but if not yeah I agree...although there's a sprinkling of personal bias as I can't shut up asking the ed stuff about Alan Smith. Poor ed

Agree0 Disagree0

Overweight? my god....that's a new insult
He may be injury prone but I've seen the training pics and if that's fat then I'm mickey mouse
lol ed what do you think? fair enough re injuries but I think Andy Reid and Rooney are obese next to smithy ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

Then your mickey mouse my dear
No one said Obese, simply because you fancy him doesn't take away from the fact that for a FOOTBALLER he's pilled on a lot of weight over the break. Simply because he isnt 'big' in a normal sense like us 'normal' folk doesn't mean that for a sportsman he hasnt packed on a bit He is factually looking alot chunkier and I too have seen the training images
In more ways than one we could get much fitter, healthier and younger players in at ER

Probably missed our ideal targets and will no doubt start to panic and bring in players at a much lower quality than the ones we previously had in mind.

Believable3 Unbelievable9

Absolute rubbish, Leeds will do what is right, SG know's what he is talking about he will bring in the right signings just watch. As for Bates, love him or hate him, for those of us who have supported Leeds through thick and thin if it wasn't for uncle Ken we wouldn, t even be hear.

Not too impressed with thew new kit would be ok if the sponsor was different but if they paid the most money for the sponsorship then happy days i'll still be buying it {Ed008's Note - You do know that sponsors pay Leeds to have their sponsor on your shirt ?

Believable8 Unbelievable5

The Kit is a real let down, looks cheap and tacky.

Agree0 Disagree0

Sorry Ed but you read my comment wrong. You'll see I said if THEY not Leeds paid the most for it that's why i'm happy is more money for Leeds even if the kit isn't one of the best.

Agree0 Disagree0

Is it me that's got poor taste ? Why do teams seem to be playing in 1950's long shorts? They look ridiculous in my opinion

NOT A RUMOUR VERYMUCH A FACT.... the new kit is horrid

Believable8 Unbelievable12

Fully agree....Leicester probably sold us it...

Agree0 Disagree0

It's so bad I don't think Goole Town or Grimsby would be seen dead in it ;-)
oh well.....

Agree0 Disagree0

Its meant to be retro.........

do me a favour...lol

Agree0 Disagree0

What is up with you guys It's not as good as last years but it's no where near as bad you lot are making out, look at the admiral kits recently especially the obe we were relegated in, this one kinda look like the old Nike strongbow one, which is odd cos everyone loved that

Agree0 Disagree0

It's a football kit, who cares, ther isn't alot you can do with a full White kit, it's no better no worse than the last 10 kits we've had, u dnt like it dnt buy it you sad moaning t**t

Agree0 Disagree0

Having a quality kit by a quality manufacturer (Adidas/Umbro) has a effect on fans/customers...the perception of the club becomes tainted by poor brand...Macron must be paying well, but they are not an established brand so we have the tin-pot feel to our work uniform's
Simple brand association
Solution=Get Adidas or Umbro.

Agree0 Disagree0

U must be blind pal some people r never happy so long as its not red who gives a s**t

Go away and support someone who doesnt get their kit from a 'pound shop' then - what a pathetic thing to use as yet another attack on our chairman who is finally getting us onto a sound financial footing

Agree0 Disagree0

Calm down pal....

financially sound maybe....back in league 1....possibly....

Agree0 Disagree0

We are years behind West Ham and Leicester...

Agree0 Disagree0

I agree, we must be by far the most attractive club in the country for investment....

leicester, , wtf

Agree0 Disagree0

Thats right, because players now choose which club they are going to based on which kit they like most, get a grip

Agree0 Disagree0

Sven must be chatting up a few club directors wives/girlfriends or something ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds United now has about as much stature as Bradford City.

Thats why no one will sign for you.

Agree0 Disagree0

You talking about Sven? I thought you meant Ryan giggs? ;)

Agree0 Disagree0

I still believe we will get big names this summer as the transfer window is open for ages yet

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Jul 2011 13:45:33
The reality is that we need more than 4 new bodies. We have released Naylor, Higgs, lost Kilkenny, Johnson and Kasper. We have obviously also lost the loan players. All we have in is a comedy keeper. I think six players are needed; GK, LB, CB, CM X2 and an attacking player just for kicks who can play wide.

Believable10 Unbelievable3

07 Jul 2011 12:59:43
Only live up the road from sg so ill go knock on his door and ask about the rumours but i guess he will tell me the f.o. but lets not forget we all want a LUFC and not a club in free fall like the end of the Ridsdale era we have been down the old players route before and fallen flat on our faces (Ian Rush as a example) love him or loath him Bates has brought financial stability to the club and we wont ever be a top 5 club with a Arab or overseas investor ..

Believable11 Unbelievable4

Well said, a good commonsense view - I prefer Leeds as we are to the club who were going into financial meltdown

Does anyone know what colour Leeds United's away kit is going to be? Heard a few rumours that it could be black? :(

It's likely to be yellow as the 3rd will be last years blue one, Black wouldn't be that much different really?

Black would be awesome yeah it's not traditional for an away shirt, but would be symbolic of a change to Leeds and if it's not liked might only be round a year

Agree0 Disagree0

Doubt it. The tradition has always been white, blue and yellow so I doubt they'll change it now

Agree0 Disagree0

Black would be awesome Yeah it's not traditional but is symbolic Leeds changing, if it's not liked, will only be around a year.

Agree0 Disagree0

We've had a black/green kit before so it wouldnt be a surprise iit was just black id love that

Agree0 Disagree0

When we were sponsored by Strongbow back in the day everyone wanted a black kit, and I'm sure some replicas were made up, cos I remember seeing a few people in them. They looked ace

Andrew Lonergan deal has stalled due to wage demands but still expected to be complete by the end of the week

Believable11 Unbelievable9

Word is that Everton are speaking to him today..

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont consider him any better than what we had only improvement would be akex smithies, but again our poor wage structure stopping the deal, amazing how leicester with LOWER crowds and season ticket prices are getting the decent players we get the dreggs

Agree0 Disagree0

Another example of poor manegment, how can we let Kasper go and not have his replacement in place. For me this lad is worth no more than 5k per week.

Agree0 Disagree0

Stalled? Greedy get i think 500 a week is ruddy good wage

worrying that we chose Andy O'Brien to model the new kit. He's not exactly a looker is he...does this mean nobody is guaranteed to stay other than him and Howson? Surely Snoddy, Becchio and Max would have been prime choices for kit modelling.

I can't see us going up this season other than the play offs. Leicester and West Ham are going to walk the division, then anyone from about 18 could get in the top 6.

Believable13 Unbelievable5

The unvailing of the new home kit might mean howson will be the catain and andy o'brien as vice captain??

Agree0 Disagree0

I think Leicester will buy the title, but not sure about West Hams credentials. We could make 2nd but I would be happy with making the playoffs and taking our chances

Agree0 Disagree0

Spending money gives no guarantee of promotion...look at Middlesbrough last season they were the bookies favourates

Agree0 Disagree0

Snoddy, Gradel, Becchio and Jonny have done the summer range modelling. Catalogue was on the website. I reckon that its showing our captain (Jonny) and vice captain (O'Brien)

Agree0 Disagree0

Need to diagree, leicster can spend all they want but if they dont gel there screwd, plus we all know kasper aint the greatest keeper with the amout of goals he conceded last year

Preston agreed a fee on Monday with Leeds over the sale of Andy Lonergan but the deal is taking longer than expected to complete.

A fee was agreed on Monday with Lonergan in Leeds on Tuesday for the usual medical and agreement of personal terms. It appears there have been some stumbling blocks over his personal terms which is no surprise considering the hefty wage Preston decided to pay him.

Phil Brown is hopeful that the deal can be resolved by the end of the week allowing him to bring Iain Turner into the club. If the deal falls through it is thought Everton and Coventry are also interested int he stopper.

Believable9 Unbelievable5

If we cant offer him a decent wage, how can coventry :L

Woodgate is going to Stoke according to the daily mail as Tottenham would not do a pay-as-you-play deal...

Believable12 Unbelievable9

Why would Totenham have any input in whether Woodgate would accept a pay-as-you-play contract?
Still, stoke is the more likely destination at the moment.

Agree0 Disagree0

Spurs offerd woodgate a pay as you play deal and woody turned it down. It not that spurs wouldant offer him one because they did he just would not have it so they released him.

Agree0 Disagree0

It dosnt say going it says their intrested in him get facts right before post

im what some people would call an inside man, and the rumours round THE office are that the 4 are lonergan, smith , greening and upson.
after that its a case of one in one out , but only players that SG doesnt rate will be allowed to leave .
you lucky buggers....
i tried to post this last night but put it on the wrong page.lonergans still on despite everton intrest

Believable14 Unbelievable12

They would be very good signings agreed, but i think Simons main target will be to bring in Defenders maybe 2 at most, with Kisnorbo back in the frame i think our defense is alot stronger

Agree0 Disagree0

But we've only got one first team center mid qt the momnt

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be 4 great signings in my opinion but really can't see upson being one of them - surely premier league is where he'll end up

Agree0 Disagree0

Your'e what some people would call a bulls**t merchant.

Agree0 Disagree0

Apart from upspn I can believe that we'll see though lol a dew days ago people were saying bowyer n woody and they're definitely not coming

Agree0 Disagree0

Looks lie the wages upson would miss out on will be made up with a rather large sighning on fee.hence the reason we are tryibg to replace kasper on the cheap

Agree0 Disagree0

UPSON ? Come on guys.. are you really suggesting we are gonna be paying 30-45k a week for a players wages. Dream on my friends. Upson coming no where near us. Nice thought but unrealistic

Andy Lonergan will choose between Leeds or Everton in the next 48 hours.

The 27-year-old Preston keeper was ready to tie up a £200,000 move to Elland Road.

But Everton, who took on Lonergan for training last season, have made a late counter-move.

Believable15 Unbelievable5

Everton have been after lonergan for at least a week if not longer.it's touch and go whether or not we get him.

Agree0 Disagree0

You would think someone who is supposed to be lacking in confidence at the moment and who was dropped last year would take the choice of being number 1 keeper, play every game rather than sit on the bench.......i would guess if he chooses everton, he's only interested in cash and isnt the type of person we want anyway. will be interesting which way he goes if this is true

Agree0 Disagree0

Think he will go to everton we need to sort out our squad soon so they can gel together before the season starts, there is to much waiting around

Agree0 Disagree0

Everton have been interested for months. Whos the person Leeds fan that said this was a done deal for Leeds yesterday when somebody broke the news?

What a tinpot fool.

Agree0 Disagree0

We've beat everton he will be signing for leeds apparently so he can "regain his confidence" and "rediscover his old self" {Ed026's Note - Yeh but i have heard that he is not impressed with Leeds treating of Player
