we are preparing to listen to offers for Noel Hunt, David Norris, Nicky Ajose and Luke Murphy in January.

We should keep Ajose Imo, he has pace and did score 18 goals in league 1 last season

Id keep Murphy as back up to be honest. can't put too much weight on the young kids however good they are.

Every time I see Murphy (was a lot last season + when played this one) he has done not much at all, he has had loads of chances, the younger guys may burn out but I would put another one in before Murphy as nothing to lose, Murphy adds nothing to the side. Mowatt/cook have made much more of an impact so maybe another youngster would as well.

Don't know about Ajose, haven't seen enough of him, what little I have he didn't show much but I won't judge him on a couple of games.

I can see where you're coming from Tingley but I'd be amazed if we made a profit on Murphy as he has done nothing to justify the £1m we paid never mind more on top. Then again Cellino some how managed £10-£11m for McCormack so you may be spot on.

We need to cut our losses with Murphy as soon as possible. Not much to offer and looks out of his depth.If nothing else MC can save on wages The others who should go are obvious : Norris, Morison, Hunt, White. Not sure about about Ajose. He looks very light weight and his pace etc doesn't do him much good when he keeps getting floored or blocked off by the opposition. He's hasn't had much chance to shine though so he might learn to cope but doesn't look that good so far.

Just a quick heads up to those of you who haven't noticed yet, we have updated the profiles for each user on the site. You can access other users' profiles simply by clicking on their name underneath a post they have made. Your own you can check out by going to the 'My Account' section of the site.

The link labeled 'My Recent Posts' will take you to your profile, which has been expanded from just showing your recent posts, so the link's name will be changed. We will also be removing a couple of the links there, as you will soon be able to change it all from the profile page itself.

You can upload a profile picture for your page, as well as having the avatar which displays next to your posts. Both will be displayed on your profile page, along with your recent posts, any profile badges you have won (when they are up and running in the next few days), your ranking in our correct score competition and how you are getting on with our new free to play game, Flat Out Horse Racing.

While on the subject of Flat Out Horse Racing, can I just thank all of you who have been helping us to beta test the game at http://www.footballrumoursbets.co.uk/games/flatouthorseracing.php so far. We are currently working on converting it from flash to HTML5 so that it can be played on iOS and Android too.

We are also going to be setting up a cash prize draw which you can enter by 'buying' tickets using the money you win in the game, as a thank you to those who have played it.

As a Leicester fan knockaert is a quality but frustrating player, most games he's brilliant but you do get the games where he tries to beat that extra player or tries a trick and gets tackled, but on his day he's great, he would be a great loan signing for Leeds p.s good luck for the rest of the season :)

Premiership clubs supposedly sniffing around our latest teenage "sensation".

Silly season is upon us again, last year Byram, this year Mowatt and next year probably Cook.

Not too sure if there is any truth there, or just lazy journalism when a young player hits form, but I guess all championship clubs have to put up with this.

Really believe that the crop of young players could achieve something given time. Just hope that Cellino sees that he can either make a quick buck selling, or hold on to them whilst they're on relatively low wages and have faith they can get us bk to the PL where the big money is at. Personally I'd rather hang on to them and watch them grow into a team that Leeds deserve, I really feel that could happen with this crop of youngster just hope Cellino sees it the same way.

I have been told that legally the debt lies with the previous owners as it was a libel case that was eventually settled. Any monies owed to solicitors should be claimed from parties involved not the club as they were wrong in using club media to pursue a personal vendetta. If it goes to court Mr Bates and Harvey will have some explaining to do. Mates of Mr Bates by the look of things, if not why have they waited so long to take this action. They could have done it when Bates was selling the club.

In Italian law, he was found guilty in march which is when conviction started, his conviction will be spent on that date the following year.

So to clarify his 1 year conviction would be spent this march. He is only on stage 2 of appeal and no date set for a new case. Also has to be given atleast 2 months to mount case and then he can appeal again if he wants which would take us past march.

Football league will know this and so can't boot him out which is why they haven't even tried.

Guys here is a copy and paste from Simon Austin a reporter from The Bun who is pretty close to MC. Explains why we are not buying ER back atm and in my opinion this is about as close to the truth as we will get.

Why hasn't Cellino been able to buy back Elland Road?

Talking to Massimo Cellino over the course of 2014 has taught me that when he says 'the deal is done', he means 'the deal is agreed'.
Not that 'the deal has been signed', which is probably how you and I would interpret it.
This might seem insignificant, but it is an important distinction, as you'll see during the course of this post.
The distinction has been evident when the Italian has talked about transfers, incoming managers and most recently about the attempted buyback of Elland Road.
Back in August, I interviewed Cellino in the stands of the stadium for ITV Calendar.
On a sunny afternoon, he was bullish and buoyant and everything seemed good at Elland Road. Cellino announced that the terms of the share purchase agreement (SPA) with GFH had been renegotiated, essentially meaning that his debt to them was written off until the club reached the Premier League.
So he declared that the club was 'debt free'.
Cellino said all parties realised this was for the best of Leeds United. He would have more capital for the development of the team and purchase of the stadium and the club would have a better chance of reaching the Premier League.
For their part, GFH's stake would be worth a lot more if the club reached the promised land of the Premier League.
There were also suggestions of a disagreement between the parties about the state of the club's finances when it was sold to Cellino, and that this was a good way of avoiding legal action between the parties. A happy compromise.
Cellino also made his now infamous promise to buy back Elland Road 'by November'.
He had originally told me he would buy the ground back the day after his purchase went through in April, but that hadn't happened.
Fast forward to this week and we saw a very different Cellino. Beleaguered. tired and weary.
Now he conceded that he wouldn't be able to buy the ground back by November. In fact he probably wouldn't be able to buy it this year.
The exact reasons have been a little unclear, but I will try and shed as much light on them as I can.
Not only was Cellino a little hasty in promising to buy back Elland Road, he was also hasty in saying a deal had been done with GFH over the SPA.
In fact it hadn't been signed and it still hasn't.
Indeed GFH don't appear to have any intention of doing so. They want the original terms of the SPA to be honoured, including payment by Cellino of the next instalment due to them - in December and for about £6 million.
Perhaps GFH now realise that those hopes of the club getting into the Premier League were a little premature and will have to wait for at least another season.
I've tried to get a response from Salem Patel, via text and email, but received no reply.
Under the terms of the SPA, any substantive decision affecting GFH's shareholding must be ratified by a majority vote of the board, including one of the two GFH-nominated directors, Salem Patel and Salah Nooruddin.
They have been unwilling to ratify a purchase of the stadium involving a contribution commensurate with their shareholding.
GFH have countered by complaining that they thought the £10.75 million gained from the sale of Ross McCormack in the summer would be used to buy the ground.
And, in fairness to them, Cellino did say that himself.
Yet Leeds probably only received about £9 million from the sale of McCormack, as a portion went to his former club Cardiff. The Elland Road buyback is for £16 million.
In any case, the terms of the SPA do not require consultation with GFH over transfers. And would they really have vetoed the sale of a player they had agreed to sell to Cardiff for a fraction of that £10.75 million back in January?
So Cellino has been looking for a mortgage to make up the shortfall.
This has so far proved impossible though, mainly because of the club's poor credit rating, which was hardly helped by the winding up orders issued against it earlier this year.
So Cellino, who is even conservatively estimated to be worth £500 million, was left with a decision.
Pay 100% for an asset that will greatly increase the value of GFH's shareholding, yet to which they not contributed, or not?
The Italian has seemed reluctant to express it in such terms. He said buying the stadium outright could cause the club to fall foul of the Football League's financial fair play rules, yet I called them to check this, they said any spending on infrastructure or stadia was exempt from FFP.
That all seems a bit of a smokescreen.
Cellino has told me he hates breaking promises and letting the fans down, but that's unfortunately what has happened, for the time being at least.
The 58-year-old flies to Miami on Sunday to recharge his batteries and try to think of a solution to the current impasse over Elland Road.
My personal opinion, based on experience, is that this is a man who has good intentions for the club and is not there to enrich himself at the expense of Leeds United.
Yet he can be rash, in terms of both his decision-making and pronouncements, and that has come back to bite him once again.
Perhaps the introduction of a new communications adviser at Elland Road, Matt Child, will help.
For the time being we are left with a club still no nearer to owning its own stadium, which yesterday released a statement saying it aimed to 'stay in the Championship' this season.
That's all a far cry from those heady days when Cellino first took over.

I do have to say that he is not in this for a quick buck unlike a certain white bearded person we all knew
However I believe the offer Red Bull may put in for May be for GFH 's bit and a small part of Cellinos & that could bring in some money for the ground and training ground .we do seem to be going around in circles again or is it decreasing circles?

I understand that there is truth to the Red Bull interest and that it is not for investment but a take-over. I expect that the FA would support the move and could apply pressure to MC under the fit and proper caveat effectively forcing his hand. The academy is already being looked at (including visits) by the PL due to low staffing levels and not hitting coaching contact time targets for the kids, so that funding (£500K) must be under threat and that will not please the FA Grassroots. MC's posturing over the purchase of ER also makes me suspicious (although I understand that he cannot raise the finance despite saying it was a trifle?). If he is in sales negotiations, why should he take on the risk of a capital investment when the incoming owners can carry that risk themselves? You won't be surprised to learn that I am very much in favour of MC moving on and getting a serious investor in that can support the infrastructure of the Club and support a real push for the PL and Europe.

Ed, has the red bull rumour got any legs? Or is it just BS

Seriously though could you shed any light on this please.

trev c

Ed02{Ed002's Note - Not as far as I am aware Trev. Red Bull has been looking for an English team for a while (getting on for three years). They looked at Aston Villa (regardless of what Gerard Houllier said), Everton, Crystal Palace and at West Ham. They are looking for a club to add to their portfolio that can be invested in with a short-term target of getting in to the Champions League. They know that in a few years time there will be a breakaway pan European league and they want in. They have made little effort to hide this. We are, like it or not, moving toward a global game with fewer players at the highest level. Red Bull, like City Football Group, are looking like major players. Investing in the likes of Manchester United would likely be beyond their means when it is likely floated in 2017 - which I am sure will become a pivotal year for football clubs in England. Investing in a club such as Liverpool would perhaps be constrained by the owners wanting more than the club is worth basing the price on future income. Whilst I suspect that they want the West Ham deal still, if Newcastle were to be available at the right price, it may be a very good option for Red Bull to consider. The infrastructure and fan base are there - the investment to push on that extra bit might be worth a shot.

Realistically, Leeds makes zero sense from my perspective - and I am not aware of any movement Red Bull has made toward Leeds. For a second tier team in England to make it from where they are now through to the Champions League is going to take a very large, high-risk investment. I just can't see it.}

As much as I would love a cellino red bull dream team in charge I really couldn't see this happening, Red Bull aren't the sort of company to fund a club like Leeds as a minority shareholder. In my eyes if there is anything true it would be a total buyout or nothing.

I actually heard a fairly credibile rumour that Red Bull were looking at a number of clubs initially for naming rights to the stadium but then building on this to eventually take over the club. It is no secret that they want a club in England to add to their portfolio and they have been looking at clubs in the Championship they see as having Premiership potential eg yourselves, Sheff Wed, Notts Forest, Blackburn to give a few names I have heard as well as lower league Premiership clubs like West Brom, Villa and Crystal Palace who might be open to investment. One big thing that might stop Red Bull considering buying a club outright though is that the FA do not like football clubs changing there name, see the Hull saga, and Red Bull like there clubs to have there brand as part of the name and also like to change the kit, something most fans in England would protest at. Thought I would share this on here as you guys have been talking about Red Bull.

Can't believe the naive post by Ed 002.
MC is in trouble as he's facing big problems with the FL.
He's already invested a fortune into Leeds and is now facing expulsion so why would he spend any more money till it's all sorted out.
Red Bull will invest in Leeds but want a buy out 100%.
GFH are now down to 2% plus a couple of other shareholders.
Let's hope we don't drop into the relegation zone while all the dealing goes on.
What we should be looking at is will Red Bull be any better than Massimo Cellino for Leeds United.

Red bull don't share with anyone. I believe they are just waiting to see which way the FL go with regards to Massimo. If finding agst him owning lufc I believe they'll move with an offer. If it goes the other way they walk away.
There's a reason that RB keep hovering, we're the last remaining club with the world wide support & a history to match it. We are that 1 club left worthy of huge investment due to the returns we'd generate through massive media coverage. We're on Sky more often than almost any other chpsp team & if making the PL we'd be the same there. Most other chpsp teams wouldn't get anywhere near our coverage & certainly couldn't compete with kit sales etc. We are that last remaining huge club perfect for RB imo.
Personally I don't want them but I do understand why they don't leave us alone. POTENTIAL! Over to you FL to decide our fate yet again. MOT

I also posted a possible court case on thurs and just wondered if you thought that was nonesense as well.
After all a winding up petition was served the next day .

Leeds United Red Bulls or Red Bull arena, if it makes us more financially secure then happy. I don't believe MC will sell out, my hunch it's all part of his master plan in buying back ER😉

Rumours surfacing again because ownership of the ground back on the agenda. It's more investment from RB than a takeover. That said, with the inevitable naming rights and passage of time, they will probably become our owners eventually.

Anyone know the latest on Zan Bededicic? I thought he might turn out to be our best summer signing, but he seems to have gone AWOL. Is he injured?

Yh, he picked up an injury quite a while ago. Darko used to confirm the injuries on LUTV match previews and he always said Benedicic was out.
He is only 18, a lot of youngsters already :/

He got a concussion then pulled his hamstring a week later in training. Don't know how bad but can't see them trying to rush him back as we have a abundance of midfielders at the moment.

I don't you will be shouting yippee in a few weeks time. Redders good with the academy and did well to get the results he did but he could have easily lost all those games. I don't think redders will stay the distance and we would then probably lose a good academy coach.
We could have won today. Mowatt should have made it 2-0 and Darko made a mistake putting Morison out wide. He didn't understand that Morison was danderous on the right because he was making runs from the centre. Moving him there was a basic error. I would hope, but should know better, that MC should have learnt that an experienced manager should be brought in and allowed to manage. MC should stick to being president. Some hope!

I keep saying it but NR has a dreadful record. Worse than Dave Hockaday and less experience. can't believe people are so happy to have a guy with 24% win ratio as coach. I really hope I will be eating my words but nobody seems to be thinking with their head everyone seems caught in the romance of it. He has had 9 games in charge of a championship side in total. He has only looked after 67 games in his life omfg this has car crash all over it. Really hope I am wrong.

Your right Spain and we was more than a little lucky to win the ones we did under him as the stats showed we were out played. From what I've read he's only been put in as caretaker again anyway but I really wish we would dump this coach concept and revert back to a manager and a good experienced one at that but who would come now? It saddens me but MC is quickly making it a no go zone for any manager/coach worth there salt.

Omg, give him a chance, he's been written off before he even starts, the football we played and results we got we're the best this season & without them we'd be in the brown stuff. I agree he'll do well to match the points ratio he got before, but it was correct for darko to go.

Have seen it mentioned on a couple of sites (HITC etc) that seems to be a bit of a rumour that if we lose at norwich tonight (which has to be on cards) and don't beat wolves on Sat then Milanic is out the door.

The thinking is that we have a ready made replacement in Redders. This could just be lazy rumour but if we do lose tonight then coach will have a worst record than big Dave Whackaday and that will not be good for him in MC eyes.

What do we all think? my opinion is it would be too soon to judge after 6 games, mind you if after 8 you haven't won then maybe it just ain't meant to be.

It's too early to sack Milanic. He came with some pedigree, so you give him time. Also, it's not just the results, but how the team plays. The team was clueless under Hockaday. The team has been in nearly every match under Milanic, though the results are satisfying to no one. At some point, you just have to be patient with a manager and give more than 5 matches to succeed or fail.

Josip Ilicic could be output from Fiorentina. It is estimated a transfer loan, but could be also taken into account the possibility of a sale. The Slovenian facing a good deal can go. Indirect contacts in Germany (Freiburg idea) and the satisfaction of Leeds in England, who could think only on the basis of a loan. In Italy, however, there is always the satisfaction of Sassuolo.

No basically MC is going in left flanking while NR goes right flank pulls a deception move so DM can pop smoke and go straight up the middle - basic but effective.

He also said if he plays for another team it would only be flamenco, he's just a young lad getting frustrated but once he starts first team he will settle down.

His wife & child just arrived. Will take them all time to adjust. If he starts playing well in first team he will feel better about whole situation & MC will make sure he is well taken care of. If he still feels the same next May so be it but he's a professional footballer who cannot stay playing in Brasil if he has ambition so knows Europe is where his future lays. How can we believe press reports as most are wrong when it comes to lufc so stop worrying. We have enough talent with or without the lad

We do not have the talent to be successful without him. Even with Redders in charge, our ability to retain possession was substandard (it's worse with the other two managers). I think his flair would eventually mesh well with Antenucci, Doukara, and Bianchi.

virginiawhites

That's a crazy response as we've not even seen him play in first team yet. That's just the ridiculous pressure he doesn't need. We've got many others coming through who have enormous potential & talent eg Dawson, Parkin, Phillips etc. Why some people are making stupid statements which imply we're not good enough without him is beyond me. It's a team game & we're imroving game on game.

Quite right Slough. And I'm still thinking Benedicic might be the best of the lot. No way are we reliant on Adryan, that's a ridiculous thing to say

Adryan definitely brings something to the table. He has that Brazilian inherited flair we all know and love. Makes Very aggressive runs through defenders with the ball seemingly stuck to his feet.

I'd certainly want him a Leeds United player next year. I imagine he'll be amazing next season, if not late this one.

Redders will do a job on him.
