I love being the only one who posts in here. It's the only place where Leeds fans aren't everywhere. I'm like King.
Paddy Kenny is a fantastic signing at this level - I may be getting a bit ahead of myself, but i've got a good feeling about this season now. Hard work needs to keep going though, we need more quality in other places now, especially the centre of the park and on the wing.
Pretty much given up on Leeds United since we got promoted from League One (strange I know), not been since Sheffield United in 2010 but the Leeds United bug is kicking back in, tempted to go to the first home game of the season. Just really resent putting any money into the club whilst Bates is there.

Much more restraint than me, my friend. I admire you for it.
Won't be long 'til the poisonous git is out of our club, don't break now! And if you have to, get down to Blackpool or Peterborough instead and give them your money.
That's what I'm thinking, surely he'll go soon, don't want to give up my resistance now. If everyone stopped paying for tickets, he'd have to walk. I could go on for days about the lack of ambition, how he uses the money he makes from Leeds to fund his court cases, how he's trying to implement a hotel/casino which almost failed at Chelsea (Abramovich to the rescue).
York and Halifax are closest to me, I enquired about a student season ticket for York for next season, around £150, so I'll probably do that. Missing Elland Road though haha.
I sadly got one still (days after Howson was sold) because my dad wouldve gone on his own otherwise, and the thought of that was a bit heartbreaking. Then they sacked Grayson - If they'd done that before I renewed, i'd have not gone, and neither would my old man.
If he's still here come January, I won't be renewing - I won't renew again until he goes. I'm grown dissident of the whole regime. Luckily tides seem to be changing, so who knows!

Any more updates/rumours on the takeover?
Rumours stretch from 'It's almost done, they're giving money to fund the signings as we speak' to 'It's not happening, it never was'. Nobody knows, really.
Has anyone seen our new numbers for the 12/13 season? I frankly feel ****ing sick looking at the list. Our squad is utter garbage. The likes of Barnsley and Peterborough could beat our ****e at the moment.

Supposedly we are going to offer a contract to Martin Crainie.
I would be happy with
Peltier - Pearce - Lees - Drury
Paddy Kenny in nets offers good experience and can organise them well
I'm still pretty nervous with them as a back two, purely because they're young and if the pressure is on them from game one, could become too much. I'd expect Cranie to sign as cover for the whole back four anyway, so i'm still personally hoping that another CB is coming in. If we get that, i'll be extremely happy with our defence.
On another note, and yes I plugged it earlier, but my blog got a nice little mention from the lads at Square Ball this week on their weekly piece for Leeds Online. If anyone wants to take a look at the blog, it's here; http://becchiowellplaced.blogspot.co.uk/
Kenny - Peltier - Lees - Pearce - Drury looks like a solid back line to me. We know Tom Lees is only going to get better with experience in the first team and Pearce is solid enough for the Championship based on what I saw from him last season.
Also scoured a few Leicester fan forums earlier today, a lot seem to think losing Peltier is a mistake which is good news for us. They seem to rate him.
I agree we need need another CB along with Crainie as back ups, especially now that O'Brien has left. I read that Norwich are looking to loan out Daniel Ayala which would be a decent enough back up CB for us.
My latest blog, though sadly not to do with the excellent news that Danny Pugh is leaving or the horrendous news that the takeover is off - I'll have something about that in the next 24 hours, though. Enjoy this little piece, for now... I guess. If we can really 'enjoy' anything, today.
