The thing is Drunk it's not Alan Smith's fault, he is a great striker and desperatley wants to stay at the club he has supported as a boy. He said he didn't want to go anywhere and he will refuse to go if the club try to sell him to anyone just because it's the highest bid.

Leeds are in deep shyte now and most of the players will go, they had there chances to stay up and it's looking like they have blown it. If and when they go down i think it could take about 10 years for them to rebuild, what with the losing of all the best players and the money debt. They will have to rebuild the youth scheme again and bring player's through the rank's. It looks like another once great team has fell by the wayside.

LEEDS HAVE GONE DOWN!!!! YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bolton wasted them 4-1 and now they're are gone and will most likely not recover. In fact, it's possible they could face liquidation if things go the way they are, this just gets better and better.

Leeds have relieved Eddie Gray of the managerial post at the club. Gray was told at a meeting on Monday and will stay on at Elland Road in a consultancy role. Kevin Blackwell steps up from being assistant to caretaker manager for the relegated side's final Premiership game of the season at Chelsea.

Leeds star James Milner insists he has not asked the club for a new deal, while Matthew Kilgallon is close to resolving his own future with the Whites.

There were recent suggestions Milner was making demands of Leeds, who has attracted the interest of a number of clubs following his performances this season despite United being relegated, including Tottenham and Southampton.

The England Under-21 international winger has made it clear he does not want to leave Leeds, while the club are adamant he is not for sale unless they receive "a silly offer" in the words of chairman Gerald Krasner.

Leeds have on Tuesday rejected two offers from Manchester United for star striker Alan Smith.The Red Devils initially made a derisory bid of 3.5million for Smith, and after that was turned down, the Old Trafford board returned with an improved bid of 5.5million.That has also been thrown out as Leeds value the forward at closer to the 10million mark, and it is understood Liverpool are now prepared to step in.

Manchester United are prepared to sit and wait for Leeds to crack as the battle hots up to land striker Alan Smith.

Everton on Thursday became the latest club to make their interest known in Smith, submitting a £7million offer for the 23-year-old, although due to their financial situation the cash is not all up front, and is dependent on appearances and international caps.

Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Liverpool are also in the hunt for the England forward, but Smith's apparent desire to move to Old Trafford seemingly leaves financially-crippled Leeds in a position of weakness.

Leeds United have scotched suggestions that Tottenham have first option to sign forward James Milner.It had been claimed the 18-year-old, who recently turned his back on a £5million move to White Hart Lane in order to help the Whites' promotion bid next season, was being touted around the Premiership to raise more money than Spurs' initial offer.There were also allegations Leeds would have to pay a percentage of any profit made on Milner should he be sold to another club.But a Leeds spokesman has strongly refuted the claim and said: "That is simply not the case. We have not signed any agreement with Tottenham.

Leeds United have confirmed Kevin Blackwell as their new manager.
Blackwell, who has signed a two-year deal at Elland Road, was due to be appointed as the permanent successor to Eddie Gray on Monday.

Steve Parkin's interest in the club forced the board to delay the move, with the haulage magnate thought to favour Crystal Palace boss Iain Dowie.

But after the collapse of Parkin's proposed 25m takeover, the club has moved quickly to secure Blackwell.
