Believable23 Unbelievable26

If this is true it would be just what we need to break the slump. can you imagine the atmosphere around Elland Road with the chance of a fresh start and investment IN THE TEAM!

Agree0 Disagree0

Really or is this a wind up?

Agree0 Disagree0

Dont get too exited!!
its just before a home game - again!! remember what chairman ken says - until you read it on official site, state radio (YR) or programme its not true

Agree0 Disagree0

Five live normally spot on. I believe it. About time. Save our season David Haigh.

Agree2 Disagree0

Original poster - I don't know if it will or won't happen but that is definitely what was said on the radio

Agree0 Disagree0

Listened to this on the way home from work. Said should be complete by the weekend 44m deal also said there was an ultimate deadline to complete by the 15n
Nov.

Agree0 Disagree0

It wont happen, sorry to dampen spirits, it will drag on until after chelsea game
he wont pass up on chance to be still there when chelsea come to er on 19 dec
by that time though we will be nearer ottom of league than top

Agree0 Disagree1

They stated this same thing a month or so ago.....

Agree0 Disagree0

It's on BBC website. They are more accurate than most other sources.

Agree0 Disagree0

Is it on the official site yet? if its not its not happening, remember what bates says every home match programme until leeds united announce it everything else you hear is lies (his words not mine!)

Agree0 Disagree0

GFH capital just re tweeted an old tweet dated 27 September with the headline "GFH Capital Plan on sustained investment following a successfull acquisition of Leeds united"
Sounds like it just could be done!!??

Pateso

Believable12 Unbelievable23

No hang on we not had the statement to say be getting a statement about it yet!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Gfh Web site sats deal done

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope it is m8...but doubt it...why would they re tweet an old tweet that turned out to be crap the first time!? Don't make sense,nowt makes sense about this take over...its a farce I tell you a farce!

Agree0 Disagree0

That was my link I posted on the Leeds United page

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't know about the re tweet but GFH Captial site hasn't said the deal is done. More rubbish. They haven't updated Leeds based news for nearly 2 weeks following the last joint statement.

Hope its coming but nothing confirmed yet.

Agree0 Disagree0

Taken from the BBC sports day live trend - The takeover of Leeds United is expected to be concluded by the weekend, reports BBC Sport's Ian Dennis. The deal is believed to be worth in the region of £44m with GFH Capital. It follows lengthy and protracted talks with the private equity firm. It's now just a question of the formalities being completed ahead of the 15 November deadline when the exclusivity period for GFH Capital ends.

Believable27 Unbelievable24

Have you ever considered watching paint dry instead? BORING!!!

Agree1 Disagree1

Lets hope so, Ian Dennis used to comentate on Leeds when he worked for Radio Leeds.I don't think he would go public on this if he did not have it on good authority. Fingers crossed and all that.

Agree1 Disagree0

Was just about to post asking as I only
heard the end about GFH. Thank heavens
it appears to be good news.

Agree0 Disagree0

Brilliant news! Thank you BBC :) Just the info we wanted to know! Just a shame the club can't be as open about it.

Roundhay White

Agree0 Disagree0

There wasn't a timeline given on announcement regarding exclusivity to my recollection so this is intrue for me

Agree0 Disagree0

Hope so because last nights performance was dire. 3.5hr drive and watched the game in the rain. 'Dismal effort'... I sometimes feel 'we the fans' put more effort into the game than some of the players. Takeover will frighten some of the players cus they will get offloaded.

Agree0 Disagree0

Various sources (phil hay and lufc trust)'close' to the deal say t/o going through but unlikeley to be before weekend. whats betting another joint statement to get the fans hopes up just in time for a home game. this always seems to be the case before home games
or tbh we will get the usual rubbish spouted in the propaganda notes of bates in programme on saturday. had too many false hopes with this t/o and after all this time have lost interest in it, just want to see some new players in and give it a good go in 2nd half of season to get into the play offs otherwise this season is going to be yet another write off.
However, we all love Leeds so in the meantime will continue to get behind the lads on matchdays and keep my rants like this confined to a rumours site!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Should be ok - Ian Dennis is a 'senior football reporter'.

Agree0 Disagree0

Suppose it depends on where he got his information from to start with and how reliable it was.
MOT! White4Life

Agree0 Disagree0

Gfh site says deal done

Agree0 Disagree0

Yawn yawn yawn credibility of gfh gets worse as days go by. now affecting the whole club.. team, manager ,fans. was at the game last night and everyone fed up with whole thing. put up or stuff off.

Agree1 Disagree0

To the last poster - where on GFH website does it say "deal done"?

I surely can't see it anywhere.

Agree0 Disagree0

GFH Capital's website hasn't made any new comment since later October. I believe someone's pants are on fire.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 nov 2012 12:44:11
can someone explain why warnock with the game at 0-0 . bought on danny pugh to replace drury at left back. was he injured? if so i understand if he wasnt i am baffled.
any ideas because i could' nt get there last night.

Believable12 Unbelievable5

Because hes lost the plot, or maybe he is trying to get him some game time before he off loads him.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2012 15:36:25
listening to the radio eddie gray remarked that he appeared to be suffering from cramp before he was taken off,,,,mot

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2012 16:11:08
I think it was because he had got bad cramp and wasnt risking another injury

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2012 15:37:33
There was some cryptic comment from him in the interview after game, about not being able to last another 8 minutes, read into that what you will, was that Drury he was on about? he then said about drury being sick earlier in day

Agree1 Disagree0

I did go, and i think the 3000 plus leeds fans were baffled at that change and it cost us dear.

Agree0 Disagree0

Injured, he wanted to come off, NW was not happy that he couldn't last another eight minutes

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2012 15:41:32
warnock rubbish sack him now

Agree1 Disagree2

Whilst your explaining it can someone clarify why and how we were 'mugged' last night as the game I watched we were lucky to only get beat one nil!? a fight to stay up this season and if anyone thinks 2 million will turn this outfit into promotion contenders then they are disillusional not glass half full!

Agree0 Disagree1

Cramp was the reason he came off. However he should have put White to left back and got another striker on. Danny Pugh is simply not good enough.

Agree0 Disagree0

Drury (and White) had been ill before the match and told Warnock he was unable to stay on for the last 8 minutes.
According to Warnock it was some chicken they ate!

Agree0 Disagree0

He got a slight niggle it said on a website live score centre and warnock didnt want a injured player on for the last 10 minutes

Agree0 Disagree0

Should have played with three at the back and gone for it. 1-0 down and we never showed any effort in getting forward. Then we introduce more defenders ? Bechio was a waste of space and probably half the team didnt turn up. We just need to stay in contention for playoff positions until January and then string a good run together. At the moment were gradually sliding but so many teams drawing at leasts its not a massive drop

Agree0 Disagree0

He hurt his leg tackling the Burnley RB, didn't show any signs of harm though, and bringing on Paddy Kisnorbo near the end... What did he expect? And then for Ryan Hall to go and bag 4 in a developmental game today, get him on the pitch Warnock!

Agree0 Disagree0

He got cramp and he had a yellow card to his name at that point did not want to risk him anymore .give the man a break not much to pick from on the bench to change any game he needs some funds .wake up Leeds we are a average side in a very competitive division

Agree0 Disagree0

Massive mistake by warnock cost us a goal and a defeat. However dont understand warnocks comments about being mugged ?? How many saves did their keeper make Neil none i think ! A very average performance nothin in attack or creative in midfield very much lacking !

Agree0 Disagree0

Pugh is a decent player n drury is far 2 slow n does nothing for leeds atall

Agree0 Disagree0

Because warnock dusnt seem to hav a clue what to do with his substitutes, ryan hall wat 25 assists and bag full of goals not even on the bench :(

Agree0 Disagree0

Because our left back was out on his feet and M Brown told Warnock to make the switch.

Agree0 Disagree0

Warnock is planning on signing Clint hill from QPR

Believable22 Unbelievable39

How is warnock going to sign anyone,, weve no f**king money. we couldn't sign a bean, we are skint. dont say the takeover, takeover my arse its not happening, absolutly deffo

Agree2 Disagree1

Agree - the opportunity for a takeover was lats summer and Bates messed it up by not agreeing any indemnity clauses at all.

Deadly seriously - we are looking at admin before the end of the year if we don't get this takeover.

Agree1 Disagree0

We was one of a handful of clubs showing a profit last year in the whole football league! Stop scare mongering about administration you clown!! If you knew anything about how n when companies are put into administration you'd know it would take some explaining showing a profit, not spending anything, not owing anybody anything then putting a company into administration!! We don't need a take over(well as fan's we do but Bate's doesn't)he's in profit every year!! We are all sick and P...ed off with all that's going on, the last we want is clown's like you adding crap!!

Agree0 Disagree0

Maybe if fans were not boycotting the games, income would be ok and Warnock would have money to spend, you reap what you sow

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2012 13:15:01
i agree take over not on anymore they pulled out admin by jan _15 again . what a joke leeds are.

Agree0 Disagree0

Why on earth so called supporters boycott games is beyond a joke', but I do agree these supposed owners don't seem to be rushing to takeover and sign the players we need for a promotion push. Mr Warnock in my opinion must know something is happening, because he would have walked by now. I tell you what though supporters who are keeping away from Elland Road are seriously making us look pathetic in support and the atmosphere is getting where I can hear a crisp packet being opened at the other end of the ground.

Agree0 Disagree0

It's still on going - just been on radio. Nearly done. In the meantime please please leave NW alone. He knows what
he is doing .....

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2012 08:15:24
Warnock is trying to sign fraizer campbell from sunderland

Believable34 Unbelievable23

What does he plan on paying him with? Diouf's spitt?

Agree0 Disagree2

If he does sign him he needs to find the ground running forsure! we needs goals and pace now!

Agree0 Disagree0

I posted the same rumour months ago and got slated, but believe me it will happen.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2012 07:49:46
I'm sure this post might get some stick but I for one is confused with Warnock. I don't doubt his ability and I love that he is outspoken but for a while now he has made it clear that we are lacking pace and a bit of quality in the final third. As a result he signed Ryan hall and we are told that its something that will be made perminant in January.....so why has he only played 15mins for us? Am I missing something. He wasn't even a sub last night. Is he injured. I don't mean to sound pessimistic but so far the best thing to come out of our season is the developmentof lees and byram plus the signing of Rudy Austin. The sooner the take over happens the better.

Believable38 Unbelievable2

Or is he lacking match fitness?

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Nov 2012 13:20:41
warnock said on the radio after the match tht he decided to put andy gray on the bench instead

Agree0 Disagree0

The signing of Rudy Austin. Are you having a laugh. Were you at Burnley last night. He is a headless chicken that cant pass. JD

Agree0 Disagree1

From the reports i have read he has been training on his own all season so way, way behind in terms of match fitness

Agree0 Disagree0

To the third post Austin had a shocker last night but thing he is one of the better signings ( Most of the others are useless ) It is not a good time to be a LEEDS UTD supporter at the moment !

Agree0 Disagree0

He didnt look that un fit today , he scored 4 goals and ripped the defense to pieces.

Agree0 Disagree0

Has scored 4 in the development/u21 squad v derby today, sureley must be worth a go on saturday, if not what was the point of signing him?

Agree0 Disagree0

He has no idea! warnock out? we are worse of than this time last year FFS

Agree0 Disagree0

If i were southend i recall him from loan

Agree0 Disagree0

Hes not match fit, hasn't played all season

Agree0 Disagree0
