I'm mates with Paul Dews (the LUFC press officer) and have just been to the pub for a few drinks with him. He said that Smith was coming back and had agreed to cut his wages as he wanted to "make it up to the fans". He also said Grella is joining Carlisle after his spell at New York.
He also said the Scotland pre season tour is going ahead as said on the OS

What pub's this then? I know the boozer Dewsy goes in.

Leeds United are rumoured to be preparing a £2million bid for Marcos Flores, currently of Adelaide United. Flores is an Argentinian winger, and has been playing in Australia for the last two years. Source: Various rumours pages all over the internet.

Reputedly a very good player but not sure KB would part with 2 Million for Lionel Messi, has he spent that much in total since he took over. Bear in mind he said today he would be interested in signing Alan Smith if he would sign for 5% of the wages he was on at Newcastle - source pretty well every sport site in UK

Theres are players that are on the rader of SG;

RB: Lichaj (To play at Left Back when needed) meaning everytiime that Ben Parker gets himself injured!
CB: Gerrard/St.Ledger
LB: Lichaj (As above) and Aaron Cresswell as a promising 19 year old Left Back.
CM: Stephens
CM: Smithy
LM: Fleck

And there is a possiblity of a keeper, most probably Owain Fon Williams on a free, or a premier league loan keeper (Mannone/Guzan e.t.c)

If you was a true Leeds fan you'd know that Alan Smith didn't have the option of where to play! He HAD to go to scum because of the debt we were in. He's a Leeds fan through and through!

Welcome back the boy who gave us great memories in Europe!

Once a Scummer always a Scummer? really - I bet Gordon Strachan is one of your favorite Leeds players, which team did we sign him from again? I bet he isn't a Scummer. . get over yourself you jumped up idiot.

Add Joe Jordan to that list. Oh and a large proportion of the best leeds team ever the 60's/70's team, we bought a whole lot of them from Scum, but still they remained loyal to leeds didn't they.

Joe Jordan and Alan McQueen went the other way. McQueen makes my blood boil- he seems to forget he ever played for the mighty whites.

Smithy should definately come back! He loves Leeds just as much of anyone of us fans and he will always be a legend in my eyes becuase i grew up during the champions league era at Leeds and he was a role model for me during my days/nights in the KOP! Lets back him becuase he didn't exactly want to move to scum, he had no choice :s

Personally Id like to see Smithy back i think he would be great for the club, however i don't know what role he would play. I don't think he is dicaplined enough to play as a defensive midfielder and does not score enough goals to be a striker. One thing is for sure if he's fit he will put some miles in and g everyone up. If he does come back i think we will get the best out of him than any where else will.

Everbody is saying big Ken has ambition and won't over spend but he has told the YEP (if you don't belive me go on the leeds site) that he refuses to rule out alan smith and to stick your offers for our players where the sun don't shine (his words) . So if he has no ambition why does he want to keep our better players, persionally i think he wants a big push for automatic next season and will spend some cash to do so.

Guys, its the closed season. Would it not be normal to see Alan Smith in Leeds? It is where his friends and family live aferall. Personaly i don't care whether we sign him or not. I don't want us living in the past. As far as i'm concerned this club has moved forward and started a fresh. We don't want any past players from that era coming back to haunt us. . . . . .

I work for the Swedish FA and help English club staff arrange visits to Swedish Clubs and get Visa's etc.

Leeds have sent scouts and representitives to Sweden in the hope of players that are willing to move for the type of wages leeds are able to offer. Emanuel Svensson and William Leandersson both of Mjallby AIF are apparantly impressing quite a bit. Expect Leeds to announce a pre-season tour of Sweden with Mjallby and Malmo (reserves) listed as teams they are playing.

I know this rumour is mentioned whenever the transfer window is open. But I've heard a lot more that Alan Smith could possibly joining. Apparently he's met KB and when the wages was mentioned, nothing was a problem. And with KB saying he expects to bring in quality free players because he will spend the transfer fees on wages instead. . Just makes you think really.

Alan Smith - Quality player (Huge wages)
Ken Bates - Not buying players, wanting to spend transfer fees on wages instead. .
