Kevin Doyle for Leeds? Or Ipswich? Or QPR?

He's only 29 and it's not so long ago that Wolves paid 6.5 million for the guy. And McDermott knows him well of course, because of his days at Reading.

The Irishman would appear to tick all the right boxes and would bring some real quality to an otherwise rudimentary Leeds team. He won't want to sink into the third tier of English football and Wolves will be desperate to get him off the wage bill.

But there's the rub, of course. Can Leeds fund his wage demands, or, like Chris Wood, will the Elland Road faithful see a rival club snap up the man they need? Ipswich are rumoured to want him and it's the sort of canny deal that 'Arry might be interested in.

I've always liked Doyle as a player and he is the sort of guy that GFH Capital should move Heaven and Earth to sign. Whether or not they make a move may indicate their level of ambition. Becchio on loan, Doyle on a permanent deal, Morison in reserve. Leeds might then have the fire power to push for promotion. Sign a speedy wide man and a decent centre back and they might suddenly figure amongst the division's favourites.

  1. LOL what a load of rubbish. Fair play for wasting your time on such a poor article - summed up by stating KD would give you the 'Firepower' to put you 'amongst the division's favourites' ... !!

  2. Doyle was crap last season!! and wolves, albeit,on paper had a much better squad(and considerably more money)than leeds.Not sure he would improve on what we already have!!!(attitude seems a bit off)We need pacey wide players as a priority and a central midfielder with guile!Throw in a few of the youngsters and you have the makings of a good squad, that could challenge!

    2. What a load of tosh. You obviously don't go to Wolves games. He was poor in the first half of the season. But he was actually the best Wolves player for the last 3 months of the season (by a country mile) and nearly kept Wolves up on his own. While Doyle does not many goals there is hardly a striker in the game with better ball retention.

  7. So if they don't sign the player that you suggest, then they lack ambition. Bit of a pompous twat aren't you. Perhaps our manager is a better judge than you. I'll go with him thanks

  10. Hahahaha. First off, we signed him 4-years ago, when he was 25, so £6.5m was about right. Secondly, "Leeds might then have the firepower?" What? With Kevin Doyle - 30 goals in 4 seasons. He's scored more than 10 once since 2007/8

  18. I used to buy newspapers every day to read about the latest going on in the world of football. Not anymore since I discovered our very own Leeds United expert. You are an undiscovered talent and I cant believe that you are not yet on tv. Please keep us informed on any further news about our great club. Your not Ken Bates having a laugh?

  19. You talk so passionately about the mighty whites, and sometimes I might hasten to add quite knowlegeably. Are you a closet Leeds fan? There's no shame be proud to march on with us

  29. Hammersfan, I'm half your age yet experienced at least twice as much as you have as a football fan. To me you're not even qualified to call yourself one.

  30. Check this wanker out on LINKEDIN.COM Neville Nixon , teacher at pimlico academy , failed journalist and all round fucking dick head

    1. As I have said before, Neville and I do not see eye to eye. Barking up the wrong tree. 100%.

      Why was I banned from Mr Nixon's site? Many reasons - including that I was always honest about the failings of West Ham and objected strongly to antisemitic abuse of Tottenham.

  31. Boring! Don't bother trying to write a serious blog.

    You are the 'Sunday Sport'of bloggers. No one interested in this.
    Write the usual fare about a boil on Warnock's bum becoming the next West Ham centre back and watch the comments start rolling in.

  32. LOL I see my speculation is enough to trigger an article on To Ell And Back. And the Becchio links have gathered pace too. Sow a seed...

  33. Hammersfan, you always make me smile and your articles are often inciteful. This time though you are barking up the wrong tree. MOT.

  34. Whilst I actually like Kevin Doyle as a player feel that the step up to a traditionally big club like Leeds United would be too great.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'd be amazed if anyone bought Doyle. My feeling is we'd have to ship him out on loan AND pay half his ridiculous wages... My other fear is that if we did find a buyer like Leeds, he wouldn't want to move to such a small, poxy club...

  36. Thanks 22.18.Smarmy looking twat ain,t he?

  37. His names not Neville its Cory and he's 21 years old. The wife, the home in Romania, the 5 star hotels and dinner parties, all bull shit. You've been outed, douche bag.

  38. I find it very strange how people ask you a question and you ignore them 9 times out of time,but you've been as quick as shit off a shiny shovel to reply to those who say you're neville nixon. Looking at his site he clearly thinks a lot of himself and his opinions,in actual fact i'd say he's a smarmy looking gobshite twat who dyes his hair aswell. He also seems to watch a lot of w,ham games on espn or text commentary. Why would this be? Out of the country perhaps? I find it hard to believe that someone has been banned from a site for complaining about racism. Judging by the amount of comments n,n gets there would be some kind of boycott or protest. Me thinks you doeth protest too much. You don't slag him off either,just a lame"we don't see eye to eye".And i bet this doesn't get posted. Go and do your roots.

    1. I think it would be very unfair for me to carry the false rumour and not deny it, don't you? Mr Nixon runs a very good discussion forum over at westhamfans.org and I once enjoyed participating in the debate. We didn't see eye to eye and he banned me but I don't bear grudges. That's why I still link to his site on the West Ham blog. But if you really want to believe he is me, that's your choice. But I thought I was somebody else last week?

  39. I quiet like Messi, Leeds should move heaven and earth to sign him. But of course he will choose West Ham over us, after all they are really going places and win lots of trophy's don't they

  40. Hey mind you're straight out of the traps once again to deny you're Nev Nix,armchair hammer. We'll have to come up with a new moniker for you,now that we know your name. Perhaps one that combines your hobby of sitting on your arse either blogging or watching football from your armchair. Mmmmm, i've got it SatNev. I must also pick up on one thing, "it would be unfair of me carrying that rumour". Well pardon me but you've carried the rumour that you're a friendless obnoxious twat for over a year now without denying it.
