McDermott thanks Leeds owners but still needs a striker

So far so good! Three games unbeaten in the league and progress in the Capital One Fan Cup - and better still, Leeds have signed another player and haven't, as yet, let anybody go. So Nice Guy Brian has done the polite thing and thanked the owners.

Crucially, the third Middlesbrough bid for McCormack has been rejected. If this offer was close to £2m, as some reports have indicated, this really does suggest that GFH Capital are trying to be true to their word, as the new Chairman claims.

If the window closes and nobody has left, well nobody important, then the Feel Good Factor Express will be back on track and chugging along gleefully. I may then have to rename Reverend McDermott the Fat Controller and start evolving Thomas the Tank Engine themes!

Contrary to some peoples' opinions, I neither support Leeds nor wish ill upon the club. I will confess to being surprised that the last bid for McCormack was rejected and I have a small humble pie in the oven ready for eating on September 1st if the Scot is still at Elland Road.

Perspective must be kept of course. The stats suggest that Leeds are still lacking firepower up front so, ideally, a striker needs to be sourced, even if he is only on loan. Norwich are looking to bring in yet another striker so Becchio back on loan still looks the best bet to me. He may not be ideal, but he has scored goals at a goodish rate in the Championship and that is exactly what McDermott needs.

  1. Popular opinion is that you are OBSESSED with Leeds.
    Why don't you take such an avid interest in the other Championship clubs,or, wait for it....even your own?

  5. What seems a reasonably sensible post for a change, well done, what wages is becchio on now and how much would we be expected to pay weekly? To be honest I don't think he would get the best reception either

  6. You are good for a wind up ill give you that, but ever since gfh took over last year all your predictions have been wrong so now all u keep doing is contradicting your self trying to get a rise out of leeds fans. Happy hunting spammer!!!!!

  7. you are just repeating what I posted two days ago, re Becchio, although I do agree we do need a seasoned striker and need to score more goals. Ross I am sure will net a few as will the youngster Poleon. but yes a good striker, Becchio will get so much abuse ...... if he came back..... unless he scores a hate full (sic)

  9. Keep up the good work, you make comments and observations that many Leeds supporters would like to make but fear from so doing because of the tirade of abuse that would be forthcoming. And of course we need a striker.

  10. Aren't there any other Internet based pass times you could enjoy from the comfort of your bedroom? Surely you must be running out of sour grapes, back handed complements and laboured metaphors. If your intention is to be humorous then maybe you could put your time to good use and find some jokes to post because yours are rubbish.

  13. No striker needed, someone to supply poleon McCormack smith or hunt is needed. A pacey winger.

  14. come on enoughs enough. Admit it the new owners are stepping up and doing things exactly right! The bank built on sand etc, etc, are really sticking it to you at every turn now! you've had your fun with Warnock etc. Move on and seek a new audience, one that doesn't yet know about your insecurities and lack of affection shown to you as a chimney sweep. Again I would suggest the smoggies, always easy to wind up and sure to give you the attention you clearly crave. go on I dare you. MOT

  26. Just read this. Wet Spam have to sell before they can buy. Perhaps all the SKY money has been invested in dildos.
    Hahahahahah

    "It`s been mentioned earlier this week that Sam Allardyce would like to bring a new striker to Upton Park.

    The only problem being that he has to sell first to be able to do so.

    Then perhaps the door might be opening on that front with speculation growing that Ricardo Vaz Te could be set for a move.

    The 26 year-old Portuguese striker is said to be on the radar of newly-promoted Cardiff City with it also being mentioned that Leeds United, in the Championship, might be interested.

    However, that`s a view rejected by Sam Allardyce who reckons the club have had no contact from Cardiff relating to Vaz Te.

    We`ll endeavour to keep you posted if anything develops further."

  27. Your only writing like this cos west spam don't have any money and you know your shit and have realised your team will always be third rate, so your heart is telling you there is a better club to follow up north, you have feelings for the mighty whites, if you had taken your head out of your ass long ago you would see even the orient are a better club than west spam. I feel so much pity for you, not knowing what it is like to be part of a great club like Leeds, west spam remind me of local Sunday league team, a few local supporters, shit ground and no hope of ever really achieving anything big.
