Just noticed that we have announced a pre season tour of AUSTRIA. Don't recall any previous tours to Austria. Not aware if MC has any connections there. Of course Austria is the home of Red Bull, seems a strange one this as it wold only add fuel to the takeover/investment fire that MC has denied thus far. Previous tours usually to Ireland/Scandinavia where we have overseas support.

Think he picked it for the mild climate. Apparently his pre seasons are pretty intense and he did not want any where too hot.

We are set to play Athletic Bilbao whilst we are over there before moving to Norway for a game against Hoffenhiem in Oslo.

There are some good players in both these sides, it would be nice although unlikely if we were to pinch a couple of new signings.

Hopefully one or two before then.

In Uwe we trust.

Rosler's choice, as he feels at home there (look at the map -it's next to Germany and they speak German!), and he has contacts there. -he's been given a free hand to devise his own pre-season. Remember Warnock taking us to Cornwall? With no coach in place at this time last year, Cellino organised for us to go ti Italy; O'Leary arranged for us to play Celtic etc etc. So nothing sinister going on -what happens pre-season is very much up to whoever's calling the shots. You'll note that Uwe also has loads of contacts in Norway, where he coached and played for several years (his wife is Norwegian). So no mileage in any conspiracy here. In fact, I do get a bit tired sometimes of some of our fans' wilder conspiracy theories.

Totenham and Leeds are trying to sign migliorini, who is a highly rated centre back valued at around £1million

{Ed001's Note - if you mean Marco Migliorini, he is hardly highly rated, he plays for Juve Stabia in Italy's third division. He would be available for about a quarter of that price.}

Don't quote me but I've been told Pearson is buying out gfh apparently don't feel comfortable working for a wage an cellino is more than happy to keep the 75% if leeds r to be promoted this season gfh will receive a percentage of the winnings as a settlement for selling up as I say am only passing on what I've heard

Hope this rumour is to be true!

I've not heard anything, but they were my initial thoughts when he came in, that and maybe he was looking to put something together for a full take over. I don't see Pearson being Cellinos puppet he has far too much about him for that. Maybe Cellino has realised the Italian way doesn't cut it in the Championship and he's now listening to people.

Agree3 Disagree1

27 May 2015 14:37:16
I could well believe this. He's owned a club before in Hull City and owns Hull RFC. I didn't think he'd devote the majority of his time being a mere employer. Makes perfect sense to me and at least safeguards him from getting the axe if he doesn't get fruit loops coffee right!

Rosler/cellino also are looking at bringing in Pozo from man city as well as barker. He has started for them a few times this season and has also come on from the bench for them. He can play as a centre forward, attacking midfielder, left midfielder (he is right footed, he often cuts inside to shoot)

Believable8 Unbelievable2

25 May 2015 21:38:22
Someone playing too much FIFA 15

What position does he play? Can't say I know owt about him

Be a good signing but why!! Havent we got young players like him in our youth squad we are told we get told we got a great youth system which we have but no wingers??

25 May 2015 20:59:40
Barker is a left winger and is one of the top scorers in the u21 premier league, he also has many assists and is very quick

Agree4 Disagree1

26 May 2015 18:26:00
I know you tube makes players look good, but check him out he does look like the type of player we could do with.

Agree1 Disagree0

24 May 2015 18:03:07
Leeds want Alex Pearce and Chris Baird, they are both internationalists and are experienced, both play centre back and Baird can also play defensive midfield, and has played 29 times for west brom this season

Believable3 Unbelievable1

24 May 2015 10:46:01
According to ssn, rosler wants Simon Moore from Cardiff, he is their back-up keeper and is 24/25, I assume he is out of contract with them and seems like a pretty decent second choice, I would prefer bentley but he would cost quite a lot

Believable2 Unbelievable0

24 May 2015 11:39:18
He's contracted until 2017. Wouldn't be my first choice, but I don't have faith in Silvestei especially after the end of the season shenanigans.

Agree4 Disagree2

24 May 2015 20:38:18
Agree JT Silvestrie needs replacing, made some great saves, but also some complete cockups that cost us games.

Agree3 Disagree2

22 May 2015 13:02:00
Uwe rosler wants to sign awer mabil from Adelaide united. He is extremely fast, good at crossing and a winger, he has scored and assisted many goals this season and is adelaides player of the season. He would suit roslers formation of 4-3-3 and bring in much needed pace. He is very young as well only 18

{Ed013's Note - Here is more on him http://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/awer-mabil/profil/spieler/255729

Believable9 Unbelievable2

22 May 2015 15:19:43
I hope not. Mabil is definitely quick, but very, very raw and his end product is erratic. Scored and assisted a few, but seriously nowhere near Adelaide's best like you suggest. Would be well out of his depth if Leeds signed him.

Agree0 Disagree6

22 May 2015 18:39:33
I like the look of this player he's max gradelesque

Agree3 Disagree0

23 May 2015 11:07:13
no thanks. quick but full of himself. greedy and cost adelaide when wanting the glory himself instead of passing to team mate for a tap in. this shows he is a selfish glory hunter. no thanks.

Agree1 Disagree8

20 May 2015 12:23:00
Ahh, so Poyet for reasons unknown turned down Leeds and Warburton due to not being able to bring his back room staff over.

Mentioned this earlier, everything has to be on MC's terms, he is controlling, contradictory, egotistical and cheap.

Now for the 3rd and fourth choice players to be signed up .

Uwe Rosler??

Believable1 Unbelievable0

19 May 2015 21:28:29
Yeah, seems so, a lot of sources saying the same things and many of the betting odds seem to indicate it. Makes me sad, probably the worst of the managers we have been linked with.

Agree1 Disagree2

19 May 2015 23:41:50
Why he may have had a bad time of it this season but his record in English football with Brentford and his first season at Wigan is nothing to be sniffed at!

Agree3 Disagree2

20 May 2015 00:00:51
I just think Hockaday and darko were actually pretty clever appointments. It anchored our expectations for Cellinos appointments so ridiculously low that this one seems actually pretty good. which, in all fairness, it isn't any better than Refearn and Thompson.

Agree1 Disagree3

20 May 2015 00:49:40
TOBS - yeah he did ok at Brentford but after a couple of top half finishes with him they go up once he leaves (remember that one of the links is the guy that did take them up). Then at Wigan his first season was more about a good cup run (which, ya know, Bradford managed that in a relegation season), the second they end up in the relegation zone with a number of ex prem players. Most of the other manager targets had at least one promotion on their CV. don't get me wrong i'll give the guy a chance if he takes over I just can't see it unless we spend big. He doesn't strike me as someone to inspire a player/team to greatness type.

Agree2 Disagree2

20 May 2015 08:15:36
Yes mc, let's appoint a manager who helped a team with good players and good transfer budget get relegated over nr who helped a team stay in the league, great logic. I'm not saying nr is the right man for the job, I would definitely go for poyet, Warburton or Adkins above him, but there is no logic behind it at all

Agree4 Disagree2

20 May 2015 09:19:49
Warburton did well no doubt and would have been my first choice. Advantage Rosler has over him is experience and contacts. I think Brentford did well but can't see them doing it again next season with or without Warburton. Rosler apart from last season, and let's remember he left in december so the club had plenty of time to pull it back, he did well. Got Wigan to play offs as well as semi final so it was not all about cup run. He has contacts in premiership and abroad. Adkins I would not have but Poyet I think would fit but the way he left would not have been forgotten by some fans so maybe better not. Redfearn is not capable of taking us to the premiership, like him or not.

Agree4 Disagree1

20 May 2015 09:51:49
I agree with Gummie in him being a coach/manager who is a stepping stone to a successful manager.

Potential for bigger names with Rosler??

Agree2 Disagree1

20 May 2015 14:13:49
Brentford owner already said he was the one who turned them around into a challenging team

Agree1 Disagree0

20 May 2015 16:22:19
I really don't want to be negative but REALLY .

I fear Uwe will be sacked before the end of October

We all knew that MC changes his managers as often as he changes his underwear

Agree1 Disagree2

19 May 2015 09:57:33
rumoured that some of Cellinos people over in Cagliari, is he looking at buying players or the club. Or are they just on holiday. Think he could be chasing Avelar LB and Mpoku winger. Avelar did not want to leave last year but may change his mind. Solid Brazilian defender. Mpoku may cost too much but who knows, pacy and tricky

Believable6 Unbelievable4

19 May 2015 14:52:45
didn't he say English players

Agree0 Disagree1

19 May 2015 16:37:01
I do not mind who he buys as long as they do a job. And if he can get them cheap and make a profit its all good for the club.

Agree2 Disagree1

19 May 2015 20:58:17
yes but coach should say who he wants not owner otherwise you get players you don't want

Agree1 Disagree0

19 May 2015 23:41:46
Agree with that, hopefully new coach will have a say but Cellino will still try and bring in players if he can get them cheap. We need a left back and a winger, loan with option to buy minimum outlay.

Agree0 Disagree0

18 May 2015 15:05:14
New keeper. Ali Al-Habsi?

To be released in June.

There is Republic of Ireland Under 21's Eric Grimes too.

Agree1 Disagree3

18 May 2015 11:47:56
Leeds linked with Anthony Stokes. When on form a good goalscorer but in the past has had attitude problems and more than once been disciplined by his manager. Hopefully time has mellowed him and his actions are now more thought out and his application stronger. If not I hope we have a strong manager - with an owners unequivocal support

Believable0 Unbelievable3

18 May 2015 12:24:00
I think the Griffiths rumor is more likely than Stokes but I can't help but think we need a 6ft plus striker.

I'd quite happily take Matt Smith back and play him in a role more suited to him unlike before. I'm sure he was only sold because we thought Pavoletti was coming to ER.

With a bit more pace in the team we would be dangerous whatever happens, a few more counter attacks would be nice mingled with our passing from last season I don't see us being far away.

Agree2 Disagree3

19 May 2015 06:49:33
Leigh Griffiths is exactly what we need he's as physical as having a 6 foot striker up there , he holds ball up well , chases every lost cause , got hell of a leap on him and obviously knows how to finish

Agree1 Disagree0

17 May 2015 23:59:33
Aidan mcgeady looks set to leave Everton due to a lack of playtime, with low table premier league sides and a handful of championship teams interested including Leeds.

Believable4 Unbelievable8

17 May 2015 18:10:03
Apparently Mark Warburton linked with replacing Redfearn? would take that to be fair

Believable7 Unbelievable3

18 May 2015 12:27:31
The reality is Redfearn has all but officially gone and we need a new coach.

I am positive about this though as I think the most important thing which can happen this summer is to keep our youth players.

Yes, we have to add players in and around them but young players playing together, improving together is a championship promotion tried and tested success story.

Agree0 Disagree1

17 May 2015 09:38:20
List of players cellino has been keeping an eye on an is type of players he's willing to bring to LUFC

1. GK Daniel Bentley -Southend

2. MF Ben Pringle - Rotherham

3. MF Sam Morsy - Chesterfield

4. MF Tendayi Darikwa - Chesterfield

5. ST Lee Erwin - Motherwell

apparently that's the list of players he received from talking to David Moss who he's keen on bringing in to replace Nicola Salerno

How good would it be to sit back and enjoy Summer and look forward to great new signings, positive newspaper reports and a great new season. As Roy Orbison once sang "Dream Dream Dream". Everyone always talks about this player that player, new Xhairmam, selling the Mighty Leeds and Blah Blah Blah, whatever happened to what we think, you know who I mean, the wheels behind that great machine. That's the Leeds United Fan, been there longer than any Chairman, player, Manager, and no matter what happens with our beautiful club we will still be there, we are not in it for money, nor status we are in it forever, so maybe Mr Cellino, Mr Pearson and the rest should take a step back and look and listen, nobody cares more than us, nobody ever will. Stop hurting us, stop embarrassing us and stop using our club for your own gain!! Do something that wi make us proud, if you can't get out and let us get someone who can. We are Leeds and we want to proud once more! SORT IT OUT MC!
