McDermott admits Leeds may miss out on targets due to lack of money

Interesting. Nice Guy Brian has approached four players so far and is hopeful that some, or all, may eventually join Leeds. And that's not the end of his recruitment drive either. There's only one problem, money.

McDermott doesn't say that openly of course, that would be far too downbeat. Instead he refuses to put a timescale on when players will join and, using an excellent piece of spin as he turns the money problem into a positive, explains: "The question I always ask of players is ‘do you want to play for this club?’ If the answer to that is ‘yes, but I’d rather go elsewhere for the sake of a few quid extra’ then it’s better that the player moves elsewhere. I’ve no issue with that."

Nice Guy Brian might not have an issue with that, but Leeds fans might reasonably ask, 'Why aren't we able to compete on wages with other clubs in the Championship?' Leeds are a biggish club after all, and have the backing of an Arab bank. So what's going on?

Anybody would think Master Bates was still in charge of the purse strings!

  3. Jesus you really do look for every possible negative involving our club. We don't need a fan from elsewhere pin pointing our problems when we're more than aware of what's going on there. Why don't you just concern yourself with West Ham's issues. Seriously, your comments are becoming more and more tedious. It's so strange how obsessed you seem to be with our affairs. Why is that? If someone asked me what was going on at WH I'd have no idea and that's because I don't give a shit about how much money or debt they have.

  5. Today the weather is sunny, but early this morning there were thunder storms - i feel a little tired as I awoken by the thunder storms.

    Also does any one have any good recipes that i could use to cook my girl friend a nice meal tonight?

    Also does any one know anything about wine?

    Can someone tell me the time the number 54 bus arrives?

    as the Spen valley football league ended (division one)?

    cheers

    1. Hi Anonymous

      I can recommend Aunt Mary's Delicious Bunny Cake - hope your girlfriend likes it

      Directions

      Place a rack into the lower third of oven.
      Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
      Grease and flour a cake mold pan (such as a bunny cake or train cake mold) using vegetable shortening.
      Sift flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
      Mix 1 1/3 cup milk, lemon extract, 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract, and orange extract in a separate bowl.
      Beat unsalted butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until butter is creamy and smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Beat in white sugar and continue beating until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 5 more minutes. Scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally.
      Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating each egg in thoroughly before adding the next.
      Reduce mixer speed to low and beat in flour mixture in several additions, alternating with milk mixture; begin and end with flour mixture. Do not overbeat. Scrape bowl occasionally.
      Pour batter evenly into prepared cake pan.
      Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean, 30 to 45 minutes.
      Place cake in pan on a wire rack and allow to cool for 15 minutes before inverting pan to remove cake. Allow cake to completely cool on wire rack, 3 to 4 hours.
      Beat vegetable shortening, 1/2 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons milk, and 1 teaspoon clear vanilla extract in a bowl until frosting is smooth and creamy.
      Pack the frosting into a heavy resealable plastic bag; force the frosting into one corner of the bag. Clip a small corner off the plastic bag, seal the bag, and pipe the frosting onto the cooled cake in desired pattern.

    2. I know the number 52 bus goes past Tesco so you could nip in and see if theres anything you could cook for the Mrs? You could see if they sell Jellied eels which might be a good idea as ive heard they don't require cooking. Maybe that bloke who calls himself Hammersfanny knows something about wine? you could ask him as he knows everything else, specially when it comes to other peoples football clubs but don't expect an answer from him straight away as hes normally busy posting crap about other football clubs but due to his knowledge about everything? im sure he would recommend a nice vino. Hope this has been helpful. Cheers.

  7. Although all Leeds fans take your obsession with our great club as a compliment it must be quite worrying for the sad unfortunates who know him. For instance,the other morning he was up at the crack of dawn to blog about Leeds. "Sorry kids it's crisps for breakfast again,i need to share my vast knowledge of football and Leeds United with a waiting world,i've been up all night revising,get that goat out of my chair and careful you don't knock my bucket over".

  9. Next door's cat urinated in three doors, up back garden. Which is surprising as the cat is illiterate and can not spell the word. It, he/she, can only spell piss. In fact its spelling is pith poor. Though, it has just been awarded the feline equivalent of the Field's Medals for devising a formulae to calculate the number of times Clyde Van Moore's collie bitch cocks its leg against the lamp post outside the Tongan fish and chip shop.

    Mrs McHerbert five doors up is having a lesbian affair with Mr Fred Piles and Angry.
    More interesting news to follow.

  10. The title of your article versus the first line of the second paragraph. Contradiction. Looking (as usual) for a story which doesn't exist. Utter bollocks.

  11. As a PHD psychologist I have been working on a thesis on how sports such as football affect the wider community and have been monitoring your comments with interest. Would you be available to take part in a study as to why you feel the need to post comments about a football team that you do not appear to support and its correlation with your life experiences?

  13. West Ham fans aren't interested in what he says. he posts on OUR site as he gets more attention ( due to the fact that we have a much bigger and loyal fan base )Its all rather sad really. He reads something somewhere else and then tries to add humour and sarcasm with his "Nice guy Brian" "Arab bank built on sand" "Master Bates" and "Yapping post" We all know someone like him. Hes the guy in the pub who everyone avoids due to his overbearing opinions and know it all attitude. The REAL West Ham fans have more or less told him to F*** off, hence he has posted more rubbish on ours, Watfords, Spurs and QPRs affairs than his beloved West Hams. Like I said earlier, it is very sad.

  18. YAWNNNNNNN

    Yet again twisting things to fit your own warped agenda.

    No club will pay outside its wage structure, so why is BMc saying that us not having money.

    It's all about players wanting to play for Leeds for he right reasons, and if they decide to warm benches elsewhere because someoen pays them more we don't want them.

    PS: Well done on your big signing - Oh hang on he turned you down because he wants to play for a big club, and hadn't even heard of your tinpot outfit club had he.

  27. Nev....the teacher come wanna be freelance journo (FFS), gives us yet another spin on a Leeds manager interview. Don't let the truth get in the way of a good story eh Nev. Do you divulge complete and utter shit to the unfortunate pupils under your charge too?

    Perhaps the next chapter of the novel should focus on why nobody wants to sign for Wet Spam, well apart from the long-haired Geordie Liverpool reject, who wants a pay rise to live in the rat-infested East End.

  31. LU will only sign players they can afford, common business sense.
    What I am more interested in is reading your comments on
    -What odds Big Sam being the first Premeirship Manager casualty
    -Whatever happened to the £18m Ferdinand transfer cash
    -WHU signing illegal players which resulted in Sheffield United being relegated
    -Why should the tax payer fund modification of the Olympic stadium for use by some fans with racist and anti semitic views
    -Football hooligism in the 70's was started by WHU so called fans
    These are real issues not the minor issues you pick up on and feebly try to write wind up comments.
