Terms agreed with James Mcfadden tbc before Boro game
MOT

Believable6 Unbelievable21

Sure your not thinking about Brian McFadden, i hear he's looking for work since his pop career died and probably more chance of him signing under the current regime

Agree0 Disagree0

If only this was true We need some fresh blood in....more importantly in the defence though :D

Agree0 Disagree0

We need full backs. maybe give oh dear another chance as it was is first game

Agree0 Disagree0

This is not the kind of player we will be signing, we dont sign players that command high wages when will people realise this?

Agree0 Disagree0

O'Dea is a centre back, and should be played there, o'brien looked awful, unfit and way off the pace

Agree0 Disagree0

Pathetic rumour, just lazy & utter nonesense. sad really

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds have signed Adam Le Fondre, will be confirmed before the bradford game

Believable8 Unbelievable23

This is just as bad as the other people commenting and posting this? Without a decent source or even the most outrageous source we can still call radebe and strachan realistic targets

Agree0 Disagree0

The only thing Adam Le Fondre has signed recently would be a personal cheque

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be nice, unlike billy barn door he can actually score goals

Agree0 Disagree0

So could Billy in the lower leagues before he joined Leeds

Agree0 Disagree0

No he couldnt - he had 1 good season supported by someone decent - Charlie Austin

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah billys done Sweet F.A other than one season

Agree0 Disagree0

Three hours to go. Leaving it late aren't they...?

Agree0 Disagree0

So Bradford game over- your prediction not correct then?

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds apparently looking at hooper of Celtic good bit of business would be available for less than 3 mil....

Believable9 Unbelievable24

Dont be so ridiculous 1. we cant afford him
2. why would he leave celtic for us since he is highly regarded up there and a first team player. utter nonsense

Agree0 Disagree0

Don't think so he costs money, we don't do transfer fees,thought you'd know that where you been for last 3 yrs.

Agree0 Disagree0

This ranks as ridiculous as the welsh haulage boss who claimed he was buying Leeds-still watching 'this space'
As ridiculous as James milner coming on loan-again waiting and believing
I suggest you support someone else

Agree0 Disagree0

This may be a ridiculous comment but telling him to go support someone else is more ridiculous

Agree0 Disagree0

Listen even if it was just 3p Pappa babtes would still say no

Agree0 Disagree0

Comedy gold. We paid big money* for Paynter last year over Hooper or Sharp.

*i.e. feck all

Agree0 Disagree0

We cant afford him and why would he leave a guarenteed europa league spot at least so why would he join a championship team

Agree0 Disagree0

Ryan bertrand interested in joining on loan.

Believable14 Unbelievable13

This would be a great signing if we could pull it off whats your source on this one?

Agree0 Disagree0

Was in daily mail, it said leeds wanted him on loan but dint say if he was interested or not

Agree0 Disagree0

Adam le forde just signed mot

Believable5 Unbelievable21

Source please.

I personally doubt he would come to us with the other strong championship teams interested, we will be in a dogfight this season.

Agree0 Disagree0

We're fairly local to Rotherham and he knows he will get chances here. i believe it.

Agree0 Disagree0

How do you know this? MOT
is there any truth is this 1 Ed?

would be nice,but think we need cm's and deffenders more {Ed001's Note - I have not heard anything about this.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Has he? What's this Adam le Forde like is he as good as that Le Fondre kid who plays for Rotherham?

Agree0 Disagree0

Sign him up, need something as a boost even for the fans sake. Come on Leeds sort it out.

Agree0 Disagree0

James Mcfadden and Le Fondre - doubt it
Le fondre id say

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm from stockport and le fondre started out there but fell out with the manager. was a lazy player then but very selfish in front of goals and always looking to score. think he's turned out to be pretty decent.

Agree0 Disagree0

Kevin Blackwell to be named Leeds United Director Of Football this week.

Believable3 Unbelievable22

Lol I would not be surprised the way things are being done at the club just now.

Anythings possible

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Stop it, you're killing me Who is this guy ed?

Agree0 Disagree0

Rotherham accept bid from Leeds for Adam le Fondre.

Believable7 Unbelievable18

How do you know that i hope so anyway i know he plays league 2 but he is a proper striker also i feel for mccormack he is aswell but he is too small to play on his own upthere carnt wait for becchio to come back and play them both there they will both get over 15 playing together

Agree0 Disagree0

I heard Leicester had agree fee for Le Fondre. So we will have to look elsewhere I think if a big club like Leicester wants him

Agree0 Disagree0

Where's the source? I would love him
Certainly do a lot more than our currant strikers Becchio and somma not included in that bracket

Agree0 Disagree0

If Billy Paynter isn't good enough for this league the Le Fondre isn't that answer.. We need a target man... Someone like Rob Hulse?

Agree0 Disagree0

Passed medical and agreed personal terms, undisclosed fee, official announcement tomorrow.

Agree0 Disagree0

I have heard this rumour today too.... lets hope its true
leeds4life

Agree0 Disagree0

Nothing on rotherham web site or sp or lufc sites so bull i think

Agree0 Disagree0

How do you know pal tht hes agreed terms had medical and all tht
lets show leicester we dont care bout the money they dont have the fan base we do the passion the spirit the history

were leeds united we dont give a f###

Agree0 Disagree0

Unlike Billy he's not a one season wonder. we may have finally got a Beckford replacement fingers crossed.

Agree0 Disagree0

If this is true its yet more bad business from grayson, strikers are not what we need, defence is, iv heard a fair few rumbleings before kirwin announced that a deal had been agreed for smith, again, no concrete evidencce

Agree0 Disagree0

Thom Kirwin Twitter - SG says Ben Parker likely to Start tomorrow with Aidy White on int duty with Ireland Under 21's. #lufc ... Also SG told @Yorkshireradio club is closing in on 5th signing, deal agreed between clubs. I don't know who or when it will go through tho

Believable11 Unbelievable9

Just read on main page that we have agreed fee with rotherham for adam le fondre, dont know how true it is

Agree0 Disagree0

I'm guessing then that some kind of fee is being paid and not a free transfer, given the deal is between both clubs rather between us and the player? Could it be that Pappa Smurf is parting with some of his cash?

Agree0 Disagree0

Papa smurf parting with some cash ha ha ha ha needed a good laugh today

Agree0 Disagree0

It's a loan from Villa. Thought it was Eric @ first but it looks like been Nathan Baker. Good young defender, might just be what we need.

Agree0 Disagree0

Another youngster isn't what we need it's obvious from the display on
Sat we need some experience, especially if Brown continues to be late for every challenge, he'll be missing through suspension. Clayton looks useful if he is given time.

Agree0 Disagree0

I think he will keep same back 4 to be honest.

Agree0 Disagree0

Leeds looking at signing Ched Evans and/or Felix Lux following a poor showing going forward on Saturday. Billy Paynter could once again be offered to Sheffield United in part ex for an Evans deal, but they'd be daft to take him.
wally

Believable7 Unbelievable12

I think evans court case likely to be sorted in next 2 weeks from what i have read and heard looks very unlikely that he will be convicted of anything at all not a bad player just bagage that he currently has might sort out his off field attitude though

Agree0 Disagree0

Agreed re Evans. Felix Lux though - not a great record and persistent injury problems for years. Steer well clear.

Agree0 Disagree0

Evans is a terrible player, bad attitude too.

Agree0 Disagree0

we have been back to try and sign julio arca from middlesborough but looks like he maybe resigning for boro

Believable9 Unbelievable7

Arca is a little slow for me not his best fan

Agree0 Disagree0

CENTRE BACK TO JOIN THIS WEEK

Believable13 Unbelievable10

Another f***ing one? Grayson has no idea what he's doing

Agree0 Disagree0

How many cb are leeds going to have in the squad?

Agree0 Disagree0

If sg cleared dead wood from the wage bill he would have more room in the kitty wouldn't he....time for a clear out of terrible df players

Agree0 Disagree0

We don't need a CB we have O'dea who's main role is CB but also to cover LB, we need a proper LB not a CB were we have enough players vieing for the positions

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope it's Upson we desperately need his ability and experience.

Agree0 Disagree0

Upson isn't good enough and way too costly for us.

Agree0 Disagree0

Aw nice another one to add to the pish list lol

Agree0 Disagree0

We need a decent defender because o'brien ,bruce and kishnorbo cant seem to stop the other teams

Agree0 Disagree0
