I've told you before and I'm telling you again.
BMD is being reileived of the managers role at ER but will be employed as Chief scout for the remainder of his contract.
Don't laugh it's what Maasimo has decided

Why would McD agree to that? Wouldn't he be better off refusing, getting sacked taking the money and getting a managers job somewhere else? Just seems too far fetched, it'd be a stretch if he stepped down a position to assistant manager. Sorry mate but can't see this happening at all

Chief scout? judging by the calibre of the players he's brought in I'd suggest he'd be the last person we'd want scouting! and why would he take it? it wouldn't look good on his CV and I'm sure he's not that desperate for the money.

could be a good ploy by Massimo to save money, making McD chief scout means no pay off and he would have to resign to take another managers job saving us £1m (estimated). Depends on his contract but I suspect that is a dogs dinner knowing GFH so maybe super shrewd move by the new top dog, MOT

Oh that's a good one Jeff!
Have no problem at all with rumours however far fetched they seem, its what makes this site the best around. Can't really see Brian putting his heart and soul into that role, when he could toodle off pocket a mill and join the Warnock media gravy train. No, so long as its not personal against fellow Leeds fans keep em coming Jeff. Really hope your correct though, would love Zola or Eddie Howe anyone that uses the grass again would be welcome.

Don't be so ridiculous, that would be Constructive Dismissal. BMD would just sue. I haven't heard such rubbish since your post about MC having his appeal rejected

BMD is playing desperate hoof ball with a park full of defensive mids and fullbacks in too advanced a position to help out exposed centrebacks. These are the exact same tactics (with almost the exact same players) that led to Warnock's resignation.
Wouldn't surprise me if we get a few loans next season and just let everyone wind down their contract, ready for a major investment in new manager and a whole new squad in 2015. Could be yet another transition season coming with BMD seeing out his contract. Anywhere above mid table is a bonus.

I heard that Brian McDermott is a great admirer of Metz striker Difra Sakho and was rumoured to be interested in signing him in the summer if he's still here. He's worth 1.8m but we could start the bidding at a lower price due to him being out of contract next year.

Massimo Cellino's son Eduardo has said that Leeds United could sign Cagliari players Victor Ibarbo, Davide Astori, and Adryan.

Leeds United fan Andrew Brearton got in touch with Cellino's son through , and took a screenshot of his apparent conversation with him.

Massimo Cellino currently owns Cagliari as well as Leeds, and the Yorkshire club are starting to be linked with an array of players from the Serie A club.
Crystal Palace are planning a 'double swoop' on Leeds United for attacking reinforcements this summer.

With premier league survival secured Tony Pulis will definitely be turning his attentions to his summer recruitment plans and if the reports are true then he's interested in signed Leeds strikers Ross McCormack and Matt Smith for a combined £5.5m.

Matt smith premiership. really? find that hard to believe and the figure is far too low no way ross will leave for less than six we rejected 5 so would not take less now, not sure why people are saying a figure less is confusing to me, if we take less than 6 for ross I would be worried as it means we don't have the money we think we do

Yeah I saw those messages, hard to know for sure their genuine but seem legit enough.

Fee might be a bit steep, but Mccormack and Smith are a pretty good combo, i'd prefer them to Chamakh and Puncheon anyday, whether MC will sell them might depend on how many imports we get. Best players are only the best until someone better comes along.

According to Cellinos son (Eduardo) who was chatting on . Ibarbo, Astori, Adryan. could be moving to Leeds in the summer.

I hope this is true because these are the calibre of players we need not as been's from the premier league or nobody's from the lower league's. Massimo will bring some quality players in because he is detirmind to get us back to the premier league and back to the glory days.

We've got to have some incredibly gullible (or delusional?) fans to believe that Italian internationals are going to come to the Championship and that Cellino will give £11m rated players to Leeds for free.

SG90

(2)
(1)

Adryan is Brazilian/Portuguese don't think he's even played international football, Ibarbo is columbian, and astori is 9m rated not 11. Why would he not want to give players to his new club before he sells on and offer them the potential of playing in the prem league still regarded widely as the best league in the world under a chairman they have being working with at a 5000 seat stadium. You say it like it's a step down.

Harte of leeds

(1)
(1)

Adryan is on loan at Cagliari so he's not even their player! Ibarbo and Astori seem unlikely but money talks. We have a 40k stadium to their 5 and they have a good free shot at playing in the premier league.

(1)
(1)

We're in the Championship not the PL and just because we may spend loads of money it doesn't guarantee promotion. Astori was linked with Roma and Manchester United and is likely to be Italy's WC squad, but you believe he will want to play Championship football next year? Get real. How would we even afford his wages at that level? We may have a 40k stadium, but when was the last time we actually had 40k at Elland Road?

SG90

(2)
(1)

Ibarbo maybe. But Astori? Don't think so. He has some real class. If Cellino gives us 20mil ibarbo would be about a third of that at least. We don't need a star player we need a team.

whiteblood

When was the last time we had international calibre players? If we had these three plus McCormack and another couple of midfielders then we'd get 40k. We might even go up at the first attempt thus giving them prem football

I heard yesterday Brian will be dismissed as soon as the season finishes. I think it's unfair people give him so much stick because he's had to wheel & deal all year and probably didn't want Hunt or Kebe but there was nobody else available on a free transfer. He was just trying to freshen things up. You can see the players put the effort in for him and he's obviously not lost the dressing room. I think it's just a case of the players not been good enough, which is why most of them came on free transfer.

Not true
McDermott was begging Hunt all summer to join to the point of him calling him every other day to make sure he signed, this came from Hunt himself saying BM even called him on his honeymoon and spoke about it at his wedding
Safe to say Hunt was one of his top targets

McDermott also wanted to sign Stephen Hunt and Kevin Doyle, but their wage demands were too high and he wanted Matt Mills who is terrible. Who are his targets for next season? Kebe, McAnuff, and Federici?

They can have Smith for sure. Probably the worst striker to have played for Leeds United

anhow

{Ed013's Note - very harsh! 11 goals in his first season isn't bad mate}

I could well believe that Pullis would like Smith, he fits the bill as a target man for him. Palace have a massive squad and would need to sell a lot of players in the summer. I hope Kebe is not part of the deal. We will have to wait and see who Massimo appoints as our new manager and the formation and style of football he wants us to play. I do not think Smith is Cellino's type of player and Cagliari seem to play a 4-3-3 formation most of the time

Sorry if they go it will be for about £ 12.5 mill

I know 5.5m is a joke Ross is worth more than that alone

Paddyob123

(1)

Smith is a good option to have for sure, not a starter for every game yet which is why we need a tall quick forward (ross+smith ain't quick) who can get 10-13 goals and give teams something else to think about.

Ross has to be worth what Rhodes went to Blackburn for, we are going to get loads of these stories but at least with MC we don't have to sell, only if a great price come in, would have been a fire sale for sure if had no takeover

DG the voice of reason

(1)
(0)

Anhow - Smith isn't even the worst striker in the current squad - we have Hunt. Granted, Smith isn't the best but he's already done better than Paynter, Ricketts, Forsell that I can think off off the top of my head.

I'd give em' Smith in fact i'll drive him down, I'd keep Ross obviously, and if we could break the bank and get Jordan Rhodes what a front two that would be!

Eltel

(1)

Rhodes would be quality. But I'd keep him for the tight games gives us an option torments defences. I always think u need 2 poachers mcCormack and Rhodes. A target man Smith and a pacey dribbler like gradel type. 4 very good options all for different games as long as the coach is tactically astute

johnnyleeds

Ross worth more than 5.5 smith is not the worse striker to play for leeds Anhow please remember

Derick Lilly, Ian Rush, Mark Heatley (lowest ever permiership goals total) Clyde Wijnhard, brain deane (2nd time round) Michael Ricketts, danny Cadermatri, Malcome Christie, Leon Constine, Liam Dickenson, Tore Andre Flo, Habib Habobu (if he was a forward couldn't work out what the F+++ he was), Pierre Laurent and BILLY PAYNTER AND THOMAS BROLIN.

If he can dribble with the ball, he just won't fit into this team or, more likely just won't get the ball.
I've defended BMD. more than prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt and been shouted down on here for it, too but. Rudy out on the right wing and Tongue tying to put crosses in from the left.
My faith in McDermott hasn't so much been shaken as ripped up, used as a snot rag and shoved somewhere mighty uncomfortable.
My sincere apologies. I'm big enough to admit I was truly wrong. The man's a buffoon.
Bring me Steve Clarke and throw him a slab of cash. I don't even mind if we have to sell Ross to fund a spending spree but, can we at least have someone in the chair that isn't obsessed with playing defensive centre midfielders all the way across the effing park?
Murphy's attacking threat was easily nullified by just forcing him backwards. Our current players just aren't feared because they couldn't spin past a parked bus, let alone a battle hardened defender at the business end of a long season.
I was wrong. Sorry, all. BMD out.

Note to Ed: Tried to register with all my usual passwords but your site will not accept any of them for some unexplained reason?

Very strong rumour from a mate who now lives and works in Miami that Cellino is in advanced talks with his namesake 'Massimo' Carrera who was recently caretaker manager at Juventus but is now apparently just coaching there as the manager of Juventus has returned to his post after being temporarily suspended (nothing to do with tax evasion in relation to a yacht I am reliably assured!)Looks like Cellino is recruiting/trying to recruit a top level Italian coach to work with him before getting any new players in. Not sure if Brian McDermott will be involved if that proves to be the case. It appears that Cellino is not wasting any time even when he is spending time with his family in Miami to unwind following the stresses of his protracted purchase of Leeds United! What a player!

Cant really comment if he's a good player or not as I have NOT seen him play on a regular basis, will reserve judgement if and when he comes.
Im ASSUMING and hoping that people who have commented he's GOOD a player have watched him on a regular basis and are NOT guessing he's good.

Also I know football is a matter of opinion but whoever put david o'leary is just plain wrong no debate about that, O'leary had a great squad (the best players brought in by howard wilkinson) and great youth players then ruined it by bringing in average to s+++ players. tatics were average at best and I know he says he didn't have say in money but anyone who let's someone pay more than a fiver for seth jonson should be shot also did nothing at other jobs as he was found out wanting. also before someone puts it no to Steve McClown

Eddie Howe won't leave Bournemouth, but otherwise he would be an ideal candidate. What about Richard Naylor? Has he got his coaching badges? Think he'd be perfect to bring on the youngsters and has the passion and leadership to be a top manager.

He did a good job at Everton, ferguson was a hard act to follow.I wouldn't say no

(1)

Poyet my nailed-on first choice -think he and Cellino would be a match made in heaven with their shared passion. Otherwise, Eddie Howe is a great call. I'd be a bit concerned about Karl Robinson not having managed at this level before -might be a move too soon for him. Wouldn't mind Lambert if he gets relieved of his Villa duties (he has worked well with youth). Hughton has an excellent record at this level. Wilkins is a definite no-go -has failed before (and look at Fulham, where he is now). We could do a lot worse than Moyes -but I suspect a team like Newcastle or Spurs will take him on. He might even prefer Celtic to the Championship as a route to renewing his reputation, given how difficult the Champ is to get out of (the experiences of Erickson & McLaren will act as a warning) Chapel A

I would like us to go for Eddie Howe, Steve Clarke Malky Mackay Zola, but the best coach who would come to us is Paul Clement at Real Madrid. He is young hungry and highly thought of. I heard him interviewed and he said he would love a mangers job back in the UK

Moyes's contract expectations prior to his sacking, would have been around the 2.5 million a season, mark.
He inherited a very poor squad, this is true and he didn't get the obvious preferential treatment from referees that Ferguson could guarantee but, it was perhaps telling that Leighton Baines didn't want to follow him to Man U at any price.
He'll be on gardening leave for a while until the severance is worked out for his 6 year contract so, there's genuinely no point anyone posting guff about Moyes to Leeds. It's just not going to happen unless he takes a massive pay cut.

Cellino to sit down with McDermott this week to discuss summer targets apparently

Personally I hope massimo tells Brian he won't be in charge next season as his signings for us so far have been abysmal! He never changes formation or tactics he's your real life mike basset.

Bring in festa I say, he was a top defender in his day and knows English football well and he can't do any worse than mcdonut

Also if I had my way the whole squad will be gone apart from Ross who has shown passion this season, I know it's his first good season but this is the first time he's been played in his natural position instead of on the wing!
Build a team around Ross and use him as the spine of the squad!

Totally agree, new manager new team keep Ross & Matt Smith he's a real handful, we dominated when he came on against Forest, but rest of them can willingly go, but who the hell would want them?

TOM LEES!. Cannot read a game, Cannot defend, Slow as a boat horse. However he can hoof a ball up the field to the opposition. And gets a start every time. He’s one of the first I’d ship out.

Ross not that good last 6 games done nothing 2 missed penalties as for the rest rubbish 4 players saturday over 30 good way forward hence no pace the player get ball pass then stand still like there job done or its a big boot up field the back like lees and pearce stop on halfway line what been told not to cross unless corner

I think Tom Lees is the perfect example of someone who's had their talent and confidence coached out of them by the Warlord. Under Grayson, he was looking like future captain material and played for England u21s. I think under a passing manager, he will get better.

Agree with the last point about Lees -under the right manager, he has potential to improve again. I would put the consistently mis-managed White in the same category.

My keeps would be Mac, Pearce, Byram (the big 3); and I would also give Mowatt, Murphy, Smith, Lees, White & Dawson the chance to prove themselves under better management. The rest can go. Chapel A

I agree Sir build the team around Ros but the only others I would keep are Murphy Byram who hasn't been fit this season Mowatt and maybe Smith as an option from the bench. I just hope BMD brings in Quality not players like Strwart or Wotton. MOT

McCormack will shun Premier League offers to stay at Leeds on the other hand Sam Byram will be heading to Leicester in the summer but I'm sure Cellino will line up an adequate replacement.

Brian McDermott will be relieved of his duties by Cellino as soon as the seasons over because Cellino wants a coach, rumoured to be Gianluca Festa a former Inter Milan, Middlesbough and Portsmouth player who is currently manager of Italian club Lumezzane and used to be the assistant manager at Cellino owned Cagliari.

Cellino promises Leeds promotion to the Premier League in just two seasons, so good times ahead.

MOT!

McCormack looks as if he will stay if Cellino gives him another (better) contract. It looks as if he is angling for a pay rise which I suppose he can ask for on merit this season as it's him who has kept us up.

As for Byram, yes he is a good and up and coming player but he is not irreplacebale and has not had a good season and I would personally take £x million fo him.

Said we had nobody to go past people, no pace, well actually you had white, poleon, Stewart on the bench, your choice not to use them, Austin is not a right winger or footballer most games, brown and tongue, no legs, hunt no legs, the slowest back four in the league, too many centre mids, centre halves playing in wrong positions, this man has not got a clue, even his subs are predictable plan B Smith and lump it up to him, Pugh no pace no legs, Mowatt tidy little player but not his game to come on too, singed Stewart and doesn't play him, Kebe not injured at all just petrified to play him, it's all so embarrassing its un real, Cellino WILL NOT give this man a penny because he hasn't got a clue, worst manager ever.

I can't see how he can stay after such a poor season. Everything just showed in the defeat yesterday why he should not stay, dreadful performances by his signings (wootton, hunt), poor tactics and no sparkle or creativity. He probably thinks that the 2 wins against Blackpool and Barnsley will save his job but I am sorry Brian it won't.

Heard that before the takeover, LUFC owed Kingston Communications £22,000 and were about to have their internet services withdrawn.

Once the takeover was ratified, Cellino paid the outstanding bill and used Kingston at his new Leeds apartment which cost £750k and his sons apartment in Leeds.

Cellino obviously has the financial power to turn us back into a force again, but this just shows what a mess GFH were making of running our club.

750k? I'll assume that's a typo, even 700 quid would be extreme seen as it's a football club and not a business that relys on ultra fast downloads/uploads. Come to think of it, were getting screw-fuddled if we are paying thousands on ethnology infrastructure when we have no need, at all.

In answer to the questions above - I asked the Football league to answer some questions and they say GFH showed proof of funding at the time of purchase. Clearly they either spent it elsewhere or gave up on funding us.

Demps - I think the £750k mentioned above was the cost of Cellino's Leeds apartment not a payment to Kingston Comms. Just badly written.

Yeh my friend had the same response from FA regarding funds.
We decided GFH were either lying or the FA was covering its own backside.
Why would GFH borrow money off Bates 6 months after buying us if they had funds and why would they head us towards ADMIN if they had funds?
Think we only know half of the way our club was run I'm afraid :(

Hi Ed I have bought this up before but is there no one in Authority than can investigate GFH? They have at best totally mismanaged our accounts which is strange with them being a bank? Or at worst they have stolen money from the club running up terrible debts which almost put us into Administration. Either way they must have lied to the FL making them not fit and proper to own a football club. MOT

Billys Boots

{Ed013's Note - All they had to do was prove that they could run the club for a year. The day after acceptance they could then run the club into the ground and take what ever they want as long as the club is not in administration in that first year. The police are looking into it and will submit their report/findings to the FL, but other than banning them from owning another club in England I am unsure on what they could do. The Police will deal with any illegal matters, but I don't even think the remaining 25% could be taken away due to it belonging to different share holders unless they are guilty and that may change things}

Cheers Nolan, was under he influence when I wrote that so clearly read it wrong!

Gfh did have the funds and still do, with them been an investment bank the primary goal was to turns leeds from a "break even" club into a loss making club, so they could then loan them money and make a profit that way. That's of course when they realised we aren't getting promoted, which is where the original profit was coming from. It's practically robbery, conflicting interest, it was in their interest to screw up our finances. Thank god for cellino

I'm not saying your right or wrong as I don't really know who to believe anymore.
If GFH bought the club in late 2012 and asked PAPPA SMURF for a loan in early 2013 ( as bates himself he admitted in feb 2014 )
How the hell are they an investment bank?

All I can see is them borrowing millions off bates @ 10% interest and charging LUFC 20%
Only way I can see them making money but I'm no Einstein ;)

As I see it, if he wants to go, then let him go. However good he has been this year he has price. Let him go to a mediocre, smaller club if he really wants to, but make sure he and the other club know that we don't have to sell now and if they want him they must pay our price. I say hack the price up to the maximum (if he wants to go). That way we either get £8m + or we keep him. He's contracted for a long time so we can do what we want this time! At last what a great position to be in!

It was in the Mirror, but I think the press need to realise we're not skint anymore and can hold out for much higher than they think. I agree with the above poster, if Jordan Rhodes is worth £8m+, then Ross should be the same, if not more, more goals and far more assists in the same league.

Way I see it - Ross is on a long term contract, we no longer need to sell for financial reasons.
It is not what we can get for him that is the question, it is who we would replace him with and how much would they cost?
What would be the point if we have to spend as much or more, to replace him with someone who is not the leagues leading scorer - Get rid of Hunt and Morrison (£40k/week) increase Ross contract and make him the clubs top earner ( he deserves that) and get him a decent strike partner with the wage savings we would probably be quids in on the deal

Cellino and BMC talking about players furtures next week, also heard that we are looking at Richard Stearman from Wolves

Think Cellino will be TELLING Brian who he is going to buy rather than discussing options with him. Cellino has given McDermott enough rope and he's well and truly hung himself. Cellino's now taken command and told Brian how to get the best out of an attacking midfielder and what to wear in the dugout. He has taken responsibility off of Brian because he wants us to be in the premiership by end of 2015-2016. Quality and battlers will be coming through the door as the opposite will be leaving through the same door. Our lifetime in the doldrums is over! MOT

If we are looking at players like stearman, huws, bentley, ect. i'm afraid cellino might aswell put up his hands now and admit he's failed, if were going to get promoted we can't afford to buy league 1, or 2 players, its not going to happen. and I don't trust BMc with a load of money in the transfer market.

Still laughing at Survivors comment above! Do you really think McDermott will agree to being a scout again? He can get on a short list for a managers job at about 70 other league clubs despite Leeds recent results. Scouts don't get paid any where near what managers get - why would he take a big pay cut and also have to report to another manager? He's a boss and won't be returning to scouting just yet. although it might be something for his twilight years. Get a grip.

Only 2 players out of contract in the summer, poster says 8 to go in summer? He's also told us half back room staff to go?

News to me if it's true ;)

Totally agree mate but site registration does mean ANY comment made WILL be backed up with a name!!
I was told something and I'm sharing it with WHAT I thought were fellow LUFC supporters on a good site. It may be wrong I'm only relaying what I was told.

Certain people bitch at any rumour and you usually find NO NAME provided, what does that tell you?

Use your brain.
We have to pay him but he's not good enough to manage so instead of paying him off let him scout and earn his money.
It's obvious.

Survivor - I want a pint of what you are on! McDermott has a managers contact and Cellino can't suddenly change this to 'scout' because (a) Brian won't agree (b) The League Managers Association / union won't agree and (c) his contract is a legal document that's binding.

If Leeds want BM to step down, then they will have to pay up his contract in full or in agreed stages.
Employment law dictates that if the job description changes then a new contract is drawn up and agreed by all parties (or BM could rightfully sue for constructive dismissal).

Leedss trying to sign Emyr Huws from Man City on season long loan as from next season, currently with Birmingham, and a full Welsh international at only 20.

NOT the type of player we need. We ll get him and he'll be terrible like Wickham, Vokes, Livermoore, Bannan, Smith, Mcsheffrey.

We need experience, Micheal Doyle / Jonathan Douglas type players.

In my opinion we should keep ross mc and get a striker next to him like yeboah. This would be great for Ross to have a big, strong striker that's able to score next to him. Go easy first time

The current bun saying Ross mc cormack is Leicesters number one target for next seasons premier league campaign.

Will be hard to keep him, so how much is he worth?

I think in excess of 6-8mill

(45)
(28)

This will be a good test for MC, and BMcD if he's still here. I agree little chance of keeping Ross, but will be interesting to see what fee they can get - sick and tired of our decent players been let go for next to nothing over the years. I'd be very interest to hear from regular match goers (sufferers), who we have that we really need to keep at all costs. Is there anyone? Sam B?

Why would it be hard to keep him, Cellino doesn't sell his best players.And fester will only be prem for 1 season

4mil! If Leicester's main striker is McCormack next season then they'll be straight back down, he's alright but 8 mil is just stupid

(3)
(2)

What he is worth is only part of it. MC doesn't need the money from the sale of ross so unless they are willing to offer a good amount MC has no reason to accept the bid.

Id let him go, 6m is way more than he's worth imo.

Probably gunna get slated for this but I think he's overrated and won't no where near as good next season.

Vardy and a few million would do it, I know they won't let vardy go. Can't see it myself Pearson seems to sign young pacy players like we should be.the new lad they just got from France for 600k is some player. Just showes if u have a good scouting system and a good manager u don't have to spend millions. Since Pearson went back they stopped signing players for silly money and ended up promoted.

Id. Say 5 mill would be a good shout

I think if we could get 6 mill out of Leicester then that would be very good business. I really like McCormack and he has been excellent this season but I can't see him being much of a threat in the Premiership.

I'd say that RM, Byram and Pearce are the 'big 3' that we have to keep. I'd also keep the following, and give them the chance to prove their worth: Lees, White, Mowatt, Dawson, Murphy, Smith. Warnock, Peltier & Kenny can stay and see out their contracts (though I would let those 3 go if anyone else wants them). Everyone else needs to go ASAP. Chapel A

He is the only player at elland road with any form of class would rather let sam bryam go as I think sb is over rated, error prone and made of glass. think what van woflskinle for norwich signed for I think ross is worth around 6 but wouldn't let him go for less than 8 if we don't need the money, we should built our team around him, like with snodgrass not let him go

Yes I think Pearce is pony I've been to half a dozen games this season at Elland rd and he doesn't impress me. It's my opinion chief . I think we need a total overhaul in the summer. Does having Ross up top stifle other players . Passion don't keep clean sheets . Composure and talent do.

I would take 6 million and Wood from the foxes then we can use that 6 mill to strengthen the team

Surely it's more important to hold on to ross as he is proven at championship level- need him to get us out of this league -worry about him as a PREM player when we are back there

We shouldn't be letting him go full stop. If we're going to win promotion we need to have a spine in our team then build around it. McCormack is very much part of that spine, like city's is kompany toure and ageuro. The annoying thing is some people who are saying oh let him go for such and such fee, will be the ones moaning when we fail again next season after letting one of our key players leave. How are we supposed to win promotion if we let the leagues top goal scorer and no doubt our player of the year leave.

(1)
(0)

I don't get why people are saying to sell for big money, surely the point now is we have an owner willing to invest in the team! We have a proven striker who we know will be key in a promotion push, can you guarantee that with any kind of money. Get rid of the deadwood and use the wages to get in some players that can do a job. People are always on about spending X million on players it's the wage bill we need to sort out and not waste money on players that can't cut it! It's the first time in years we have an owner in MC that can shake the club up a bit it's his own cash and he will only get a payday on promotion so will have to succeed one way or another! MOT exciting times ahead (fingers crossed)

(1)
(0)

How are people even considering saying they'd let him leave. We are not obliged to sell any of our best players and RM is by far our best player, we're not a club that is desperate for money. I think BM will still be here next season and he for 1 will not sell RM. 4/5mil is crazy talk. We rejected 6 from Cardiff. So if there was a price it would have to be above 6mil.

(1)
(1)

Its not all about what the club want to do ultimatly itll b ross that decides,, given what he's witness over his time here noone could blame him, u can be damn sure that before he consideres anything jes giing to demand to be top paid player, rightly so, but that's going to put him on 25k+, which can't happen and probably isn't worth it

(1)
(1)

It was 4mill from cardiff from what cellino says?

(1)
(0)

Has to be pointed out; we may need to sell McCormack to balance things out with FFP rules, given our current financial woes. Not many of our players are worth proper money. Millwall might pay something for Steve Morison but, not much. Don't shoot me down or go on about how Cellino's worth loads. I'm just making the point; FFP changes things and it's not quite as easy, these days, as having a billionaire descend and throw his cash around.

Cant see that seems how Leicester have Vardy, Nugent and Wood already? don't want Ross to leave, but if it was money plus any of those 3 strikers, i'd probably take that.

City white
I agree with you on FFP situation but!

QPR were paying guys 100k a week when Redknapp went in?
Leicester are spending a fortune on wages?
Reading spending a fortune on wages?

We have better gate receipts than these clubs so how do they get away with it?

(0)
(0)

They don't get away with it, as such; QPR and Leicester are both posting massive financial losses and the debt becomes restructured (in the same way as Bolton, where a huge loss is incurred and then bundled up and swapped for equity. club would show it's debts cleared and so, free to make another massive loss and the merry-go-round continues). If Leeds were to try that, we'd get the book thrown at us. If Leeds can't be demonstrated to have done anything wrong, they'd just change the rules to show Leeds had but, as we all know, Leeds doesn't exactly get impartial treatment from the footballing authorities.
CityWhite

Its down to "Owners" buying equity to bring debt down to FFP levels. If that doesn't happen hen "Sanctions" applied.

RMc is realistically only going to command a fee of 2-3 million.

Strong rumours in and out of lufc are suggesting leeds are very close on the signing of kieran Westwood. Butland will not be allowed to leave stoke in the summer as begovic looks set for a move to spain so Sunderlands number 2 is looking for regular football after sunderland confirmed mannone will remain at the club again. Top class Westwood. Leeds would be the ideal move him. Mot

Well, I would welcome a world class manager. Brian McDermott is not good enough, just because he's now in a tracksuit does not mean he knows jack about running a decent side and playing people in correct positions, Mr Cellino, don't give him a penny more to blow on rubbish!

Oh dear! Not really worth dignifying with a comment. Obviously a big no thanks -we need a hungry, driven manager, out to prove themselves, not a bored multi-millionaire pensioner. And where would Cellino have found the time the last few days? He's giving Brian until the end of the season to buy himself time, and no doubt put put some feelers as to who might fit the bill as Brian's successor. Chapel A

You can't take his stint as England manager as a good example. There is a huge difference between club and International management, and Cappello has proven himself with many clubs.

As much chance of Fergie coming out of retirement to steer Leeds to Premier League as Capello. Ancelotti could be available in summer and he's Italian so may go after him too?

I heard earlier in the year that when Flowers issued the writ there was talk of 'Help Link' making a significant announcement but they never did. I doubt very much that Enterprise Insurance will still be the shirt sponsors next season. Also rumoured that Cellino is not happy with the current deal that Macronhas tied the club into till 2017.!

It costs £500,000 a year to sponsor Leeds United and I hear Enterprise are still interested.
However Clipper Logistics are also a possibility.
