Hi Ed

A Trustworthy Derby fan here.

There is some truth in the recent speculation with wolves interest in Jamie ward as Dean Saunders Knows him somehow.But Interest is all it is.No inquiry or bid has been made so this 1.5 million figure has been made up as if he was sold due to him being rated by our fans as probably our best player it would be undisclosed to protect the fans and board from any protests should the figure deem to be too low.I have also seen a lot of replys to derby posts saying "You Always sell cheaply".
my answer is in the past 5 years every player we have sold apart from 2 has been undisclosed and many that have left have had their contracts terminated or run down so this selling of players is a myth what is true though is a lack of spending.But I feel people arient being resonable in the fact that the club have spent over 30m on upgrading facilities and working on the academy as overall our philosophy is producing players and making them first team players or selling some to buy more experienced players.This team is one that has been slowly transforming in 4 seasons going from overpaid old players to cheap young vibrant players with energy about them.I please ask if anyone has the time can either watch the videos available or go and watch the u21s and u18s as that's our signings for the future.There is some great talent there and that's where are money has gone.Not every club has to go and spend millions on prem rejects or Experienced champ players to get out of this league the best ones have a style of play and with everything stability and sticking with that is key to progression.Like anything going on a spending spree in January to boost your promotion chances can have a negative effect on the players that have worked so hard on the first half of the season or sacking a manager who is in the top half of the table and steadily improving yet a chairman wants quicker results.If you look at the most successful teams over a period of time its because they have stuck by something. Whether that's a manager, players or style of play.A club being stable will be key for every single club come the new financial fair play rules.Which in my opinion will see the German Bundesliga become the biggest league due to their vast amount of home grown talent playing in the home league.

Im really sorry for that rant back to derbys transfer runmours.

I have been told by a worker at Shrewsbury town that in the summer there will be a number of dealing between derby and themselves involving loans and permanent deals.One being Ben davies going back to shrewsbury and Derby are looking at one of their wingers and a Defender who is out of contract in the summer.

One player who I know for 100% that Clough is really interested in but wants to sign him on a pre contract a month before the summer is Will grigg.He has sent people to watch him.

This is all I know so far but have been told by some people in around the club that nigel is still trying to see if he can bring in someone on loan during the transfer window especially with more players going out on international duty and the possibility of still being in the FA cup.Basically wants more options to rotate.I have no idea what position it will be my only guess would be centre back but haven't got any idea sorry Ed.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who is sick and tired of A) selling our best players and B) the ridiculous transfers mentioned by some people on this site
leeds and gfh haven't got a clue, we won't sign any decent players and as of yet gfh have been as bad as Bates

clarke and ashworth are managing to wreck a great start to the season by meddling with players transfers, why do so many of our players seem unsettled, odemwingie made a fair point with clarke rotating the players so much, when the teams winning, leave it alone,, 2013 what a great start to the year, out the cups and players jumping ship

previous rumours on this site have not been far away, dawsons gone on loan, wingie on his way because there no way he can stay know after asking to go, clarkes fault for playing him on the wing and he wants more money; olson won't be far behind and dorrans will definately go, clarke said no one leaving this window

Unless Ken Bates is kicked out of my/our club I will never return to Elland Road.

I have supported Leeds for over 40 years and continue to do so, but if we can't make Beccio the offer he needs to stay to fulfill his contract then so be it.

GFH or whatever they call themselves have been conspicous by their absence.

You want me/us back at Elland Road then put up.....

nothing happening so far, and Bates is still running the show!!

When gfh were asked how they would run the club they said ok we don't know anything about running a club, but ken bates does...Deep suspicion that bates still owns the ground and thorpe arch.

Reuben Reid has agreed a one month loan to League Two Plymouth. The ex. West Brom striker has found first team opportunities limited at Yeovil and with another striker set to sign on Monday, this loan deal is good for both parties.
