Is Max Kruse supposed to be amy good? As far as I can make out he's playing for St Pauli who have been relegated and were recently beaten 8-1. This doesn't make me feel confident about him. The rumour also appears only on Wikipedia, prob linked to this website as the source, this is self perpetuating.

If you want rumours, it's strange how all of a sudden Bates now owns the club (as if he didn't before) Elland Road is getting a make over, hotels, new executive boxes and the 5yrs since administration, so Leeds could go back into the Prem league without financial restraint. . hmmm am I just being cynical?

I do a lot of business over in spain and ive been talking to some good friends of mine who told me about a rumour doing the rounds in the local press of a guy called Emiliano Armenteros who plays for Rayo Vallencano (although hes on loan from sevilla). He's been somewhat prolific this season and ive watched a few games where he has been outstanding. Ive been told he's been subject of a bid from Leeds for around 125k and has been watched by the same scouting network who picked out Becchio.

They tell me the deal is pretty much a certain to happen but Leeds face competition from a couple of the smaller La Liga sides.

Leeds will be building for the future this season, ken bates never intended us to go up his season, if we had done leeds would have to pay back all the money from the insolvency as it was within the 5 years! but now bates will give grayson the money to spend and bring in quality rather than quantity!
Danns, westwood, st ledger, and pratley would be very good signings and great additions to the squad with deadwood, higgs, naylor, bessone, kilkenny and paynter all going along with the loanees!
