Agent pulls out all the stops to secure McCormack a 4 year deal at Leeds

Ok, there are some players who spend years and years and years outside of the top division who, when eventually given their chance, suddenly shine. Lambert at Southampton is one. But they are few and far between. Generally, the Premiership scouts know what they are up to, and if they suspect a player isn't up to it, for the most part, the player doesn't merit a chance.

And Ross McCormack is almost certainly one of those "nearly men". Fine, he has played for Scotland but that's akin to saying that you have run the London Marathon - in a time of fifteen hours and 45 minutes!

He is now 27 and apart from 11 games for Glasgow Rangers has never come near to playing at the top of the game. True, he has had an impressive start to the season but his goal against Ipswich was a keeper error and he only scored from the spot against Donny. If everybody is honest, Ross is a journeyman player who, through endeavour, makes the best of his limited God given ability.

So the excitement at him signing a 4 year deal, although understandable, is somewhat over the top. The Leeds board have set a target of being in the Prem in two years time, so what will they do with Ross for the last two years of his contract?

Of course, a player signing a contract extension is no guarantee that he will stay. It simply means that his sales value increases and he is in a stronger position to negotiate a higher wage at a buying club, but with the window due to slam shut on Monday, it looks as if McCormack will be at Leeds until January at least. Tony Nobody must almost certainly look elsewhere.

But the question is, did McCormack's agent engineer a better deal for his client than the Leeds United board needed to pay? Mind you, Leeds fans won't give a toss if the Scot scores the winner that sinks QPR today!

    3. and (10.21) where is the level of understanding in calling someone a "Southern Troll" and claiming they were never "invited to parties". Seems a rather puerile comment to me.

    5. Hey Jack, There's far more puerile comments posts by the owner of this blog! Never being invited to parties was a little dig at the owner for trying to be the pooper of our feel good factor, a feel good factor us LUFC fans have not been too familiar with over the last 8 years or so.
      Also "Southern Troll" reflects his personality as a cockney attetion seeker. It's a shame you weren't able to make that connection.

  3. So what's your point?

    Oh and by the way ....."but with the window due to slam shut on Monday, it looks as if McDermott will be at Leeds until January at least"..... McDermott? I think he'll stay don't you? As usual, piss poor stuff.

  7. West End debt that would be one matter to worry and believe me boy loans tend to be have a nasty habit; you must pay back in some sunny (cloudy) day. Even though you have a soft spot for the Whites well you can't ride two horses can you? Make up your mind and stick to it and never look back...

  12. I'm gonna give you some credit. I mean, how someone can be so stubborn to carrying on trolling about a club he doesn't he support...for over a year!...must take some dedication. The fact that you wrote this at 8:09am gives a clue that you couldn't wait to get up this morning, turn on the computer and take part in your daily fetish.

    My guess is that this is less of a need to antagonize, but more to do of a little sadistic fetish you need to fulfill yourself. My guess is you probably write these little accounts to atone for the fact that you probably have never had a girlfriend, never got laid and probably have a very small penis. Bravo sir.

  14. I seem to recall players like Lee Chspman being what you call a nearly man, and he made " the best of his limited god given ability". Be honest your gutted he's signed the new deal, you've spent the last 3 weeks hoping he'd move and pridictivley you will spend the rest of the season pulling him down.

  16. Says a man who in his heart knows that even in the Premier League his team will never be as big as Leeds United. Such a jealous man, it'll eat you up from the inside if you're not careful chump.

  21. Seem to remember you would eat humble pie if we kept him, the old regime is gone, all hail the new Leeds, we will now build on this as the club has stated. with the Likes of Mowatt coming thru, bryam will back soon, Rudi is playing to his first thought strengths, Smith, Woottan and Skywalker are proving there worth and we have loads of kids coming through.Ross is playing very well, let alone scoring, as all the boys are, the manager has them playing football. we have had a great start, we will win loose and draw, now wind your neck in and give credit due where credit is due for once, this is all about a learning curve and new start. we are loving it and you hate the fact we are getting together. be constructive and bleat on about your own issues and leave out your crap for once. as stated above your rattling on about facts we are well aware of ..... complete knob wallet!!!!!!!!
