Leeds United's McCormack to Middlesbrough? Why trade a run down semi for a squat?

So the latest rumour - propagated by Sky no less - is that Miserableboro have tabled an offer for Ross McCormack as Tony Nobody desperately flails around looking for a way of saving his job. But the immediate reaction is, why on earth would the Scottish international swap a promotion push with Leeds for a relegation struggle in what a Tory Lord  recently described as the North East wasteland? This is surely a fracking non starter from the off!

Apart from anything else, McCormack appears key to Nice Guy Brian's plans. He can play up top or he can play out wide. And he is better at both than Reg Varney who would be much more in Miserableboro's league and who is well used to relegation struggles after his stint at Portsmouth.

I have money on Boro to go down. Their form since Christmas was dire - except when they played Leeds! - and they will continue to struggle for as long as Mowbray stays in charge. He has lost the plot. He has lost the dressing room. He has even managed to lose Kieron Dyer, and he is more difficult to shake off than AIDs!

So tell me, if you were McCormack, why would you agree to the move, even if the Arab Bank Built on Sand fancied cashing in? He's escaped Scotland once, so why move closer to the border? And why agree to play for a team as fashionable, outside of Glasgow, as tank tops and loons?

But if he does go, what will that say about the new owners at Leeds or about McCormack's sense of ambition?

It's a non starter for me! Leeds fans will be praying that GFH Capital agree!

    9. I am a passionate Boro fan and lived in Leeds for a few years. The fans have been angry for many years. I used the work near the stadium and always piles and piles of glass where they used to smash home fans car windows on their way out of the match. The nastiest fans to ever visit the Riverside. Once witnessed a Leeds fan offering a kid out who didn't look much older that 14 outside the riverside Then I come on here to read the article and surprise surprise Leeds fans are shouting offensive remarks about the town middlesbrough people live in and just been arse holes as per usual.

      That sums it up for me really. I saw more trouble on nights out in Leeds than any other city I have lived in. What is hilarious is that Leeds fans should be arguing with utd fans but haven't even been in the same league for many years. A big club like Leeds have been very average for a number of years. I worked with a Leeds fan back when I worked there and he was so pissed off at the fact we had Jimmy floyd and viduka and they were in the championship at the time gave me so much pleasure.

      I don't think we will sign Ross but if we do I will laugh my fucking bollox off

  15. The vast majority of Leeds fans are Jimmy Saville's offspring so it's little wonder they're always so bitter and constantly live on past glories propt up by money that wasn't there's. It's coming up to a decade since you inbred's were last in the PL....when will it finally sink in that you're shit and will forever be consigned to the lower leagues whilst GFH bend you over a table and screw every last penny they can take. We're owned and managed by local lads with a great academy so we've got local pride throughout our club....can you say the same?.

Where does our MD hail from....Oh its Leeds.
      GFH have lowered the prices and actually done the bending over backwards to engage with fans.....Get your facts right before your tiny judgmental brain starts to express views that are absolute bollocks!
      I have nothing against Boro but lets be fair, Leeds are still one of the biggest supported teams in the UK. A full house for opening game of season........How many packed the riverside 17.223!!! Perhaps you should keep quiet unless you have something of substance to say.

    1. I'm a Leeds fan through and through but to say he is part of McDermotts plans is laughable and way off of the mark. McCormack is the only saleable asset that Leeds have asside from Byram (Who is injured and cocked everything up for McD) and McD has been touting him around every club trying to raise funds. Only stumbling block is McCormack doesn't want to leave.

    Dirrrrtttty Leeds is a one city club. You could be in league 2 and still attract crowd of 20k. We have a population of 130k, percentage wise and intellectual wise we shit on your Jimmy Saville'd offspring

  34. Selling club Leeds let their best player go in every transfer window. Now it's clear Byram is crocked for weeks if not months nobody will be coming in for him. Next on the list is McCormack. In case anyone thinks: what about Murphy - watch what happens when his value increases and a premiership club like Norwich comes calling - which they will in January.

  36. As a Boro fan I wouldn't touch any Leeds player, there all shit and the team is simply a relegation candidate. Why another Scottish championship player when further down the road Kevin Doyle is available with Premiership qualities. If he does decide to come to a far greater team and scores against your shitty little club it might be worth the scraps we pay for him, as surely non of your players are worth over £250K.
