Leeds United News from The Sporting Life    Yorkshire Evening Post


February 28: Lucas Radebe missed his flight back from his international match today, so there will be a few crossed fingers hoping he makes the next one and manages to turn up for the game tomorrow night. Lucas won his 50th cap in South Africa's 4-1 victory over Gabon and was held up after many of the jubilant 50000 crowd invaded the pitch. Since Jon Woodgate is suspended, his presence is even more important to partner David Wetherall at the back.

February 27: David Batty is rumoured to be planning to return for the reserves against Derby on Tuesday night.

February 27: Derek Lilley has turned down a second loan move to Scotland, preferring to stick it out and fight for a place at Elland Road.

February 27: Leeds' games against Liverpool and Man U have been moved for TV. The game against Liverpool now kicks off at 8pm on April 12, and the game against Man U kicks off at 1130 on April 25.

February 24: Leeds have run up against opposition from the local planners in their attempt to develop the football academy at Thorp Arch.

February 24: David Hopkin's booking against Spurs means he'll miss the league game against Judas Graham's mob in a couple of weeks.

February 24: David Wetherall was detained in hospital overnight after a clash of heads with Les Ferdinand left them both groggy, but he should be clear to play in Monday's game at Leicester.

February 23: Well, the first goal may have come from a free kick that should never been awarded (I made that a total of 8 dives in the game by the cheating Frenchman) but both of them were well- taken, and the luck never really ran our way. Spurs deserved the victory on the night, but a special mention must be made of Neale "Homer" Barry - the man who thinks that the difference between a fair challenge and a bookable offence is the colour of the player's shirt.

February 23: Paul Shepherd has finally found somewhere to go on loan: he'll be at Tranmere until the end of the season.

February 23: Jamie McMaster made a winning - and scoring debut for England's U-16 side last night. His happiness will not be shared by officials of Soccer Australia who were rather hoping that he would ignore his English passport and play for the country where he was brought up.

February 22: The home league game with Spurs has been put back to Wednesday night to avoid a clash (!) with the Bradford City home game which is also on that night. The West Yorkshire Police are obviously a bit stretched right now.

February 22: Both foreign triallists - Knavs and Haber - have been released after DOL decided he didn't like what he saw.

February 22: Good news about the Spurs game: South Africa have agreed to release Lucas Radebe and it looks like Jon Woodgate will be fit so we might have a chance. On the other hand, if we lose, the main excuse I was going to use on my neighbours is gone...

February 20: A scrappy game was brightened up by Willem Korsten's first goal for the club as a reinvigorated Everton were put in their place. Now for Spurs on Wednesday....

February 19: Paul Shepherd didn't quite make it to Dundee United on loan: the Scottish club forgot to check his age and only noticed they were breaking a rule about over-21 loan players at the last minute.

February 19: Lucas Radebe is a doubt for the Spurs replay and the crucial league game against Leicester. South Africa want their captain to turn out for an African Nations Cup qualifier against The Gabon, and the travelling might force him to miss both games, further depleting the already weakened squad.

February 19: The Spurs league game at Elland Road has been put back to Tuesday March 9 since one or the other of us (hopefully Leeds!) will be playing at Barnsley in the FA Cup quarter-finals on the scheduled day.

February 18: Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has been told by David O'Leary that we're keen to keep him when his contract comes up for renegotiation: but not at any price. There's a feeling that JFH might rate himself at a slightly higher level than we think he's worth - but if he keeps scoring goals like the ones he bagged last night, the club may find it needs to dig deeper to keep him.

February 18: Lee Bowyer and Jon Woodgate - who both missed last night's win at Villa - hope to be fit for the game against Everton on Saturday.

February 18: Clyde Wijnhard and Ian Harte were involved in two separate car crashes in Leeds last night on their way back from the Villa game. Neither was seriously injured.

February 17: A stunning pair of goals from JFH - breaking his barren spell just as he'd promised - gave us an important win at Villa Park. Stressed out Stan made a brief appearance for Villa, but there were more than a few late worries for Leeds after Scimeca equalised.

February 17: Alexander Knavs - the Slovenian triallist is still around, having strengthened his chances of a work permit by playing in his country's last two international matches.

February 17: Jon Woodgate looks set to miss tonight's game at Villa with a knee injury. As the injury crisis deepens, Matthew Jones could make his full debut.

February 16: Defender Paul Shepherd could be moving to Dundee United on loan: the club will play a friendly to give him a trial with a view to taking him on for the rest of the season. Meanwhile Derek Lilley could be returning from Scotland as Hearts try to cut costs and cannot afford to take him on permanently.

February 16: David O'Leary has said he'll be happy to sign whatever contract the club wants: it looks likely that he'll be offered a 3-4 year deal in the summer or sooner.

February 15: More confusion on the DOL contract front. Peter Ridsdale has stated that O'Leary's wages and bonuses were both considerably increased when he took over from GG - the only thing that wasn't changed was the length of the contract.

February 14: It seems that David O'Leary has still not signed a formal contract as Leeds manager. He'll be sitting down with the board next week to discuss terms and determine how much money he'll have available to spend on new players. Let's hope his next buy is a bit more lucky than his first - David Batty.

February 13: In the first half Spurs have the best chances but it takes a bizarre bounce and deflection in the second to put them ahead. A 20-yard RIGHT-footer from Ian Harte takes the game to a replay on February 24.

February 13: Trevor Cherry has been appointed as a co-director of Huddersfield Town.

February 12: Lee Bowyer's twisted ankle threatens to sideline him along with Bruno Ribeiro and Stephen McPhail for tomorrow's FA Cup clash with Judas Graham. Clyde Wijnhard is suspended but Alan Smith has shaken off his injury worries and should start.

February 11: Leeds have taken Marcus Haber on as a triallist. Haber is a 27-year-old German who could slot in at right-back to cover our current injury crisis or play in midfield. He has 2 caps and over 200 games for Kaiserslauten and Stuttgart but now plays for Las Palmas. We're also apparently interested in 20-year-old Norwegian defender Inge Andre Olsen, currently with Stabaek who have insisted he is not for sale.

February 09: Lee Bowyer scores on his return to the England U-21 side but limps off injured: nowt too serious we hope.

February 09: Ian Harte has been recalled to the Republic of Ireland side and will win his 19th cap against Paraguay on Wednesday night.

February 09: One of the all-time Leeds greats, John Charles has been awarded an honorary degree for his contribution to football by the University of Wales.

February 08: Leeds are once again being pratted around by the FA as a result of their successful youth policy. Despite the fact that Jon Woodgate and Alan Smith picked up injuries against Newcastle and aren't fit, they have to travel to join the England U-18 squad for this week's friendly.

February 06: A woeful inability to create chances was the main cause of defest in a game otherwise dominated by the team in white. Ref Uriah Rennie lived up to his burgeoning reputation as the fussiest card-wielder in town and a defensive mix-up and lucky ricochet left Solano free to score the only goal.

February 05: Alan Maybury has apparently declined to go on loan to Dunfermline, preferring to fight for his place in the Leeds team.

February 04: Lee Bowyer has been called up to the England U-21 squad. It's not the seniors, but it's a start.

February 04: Alan Maybury will complete his recuperation - and the rest of the season - on loan at Dunfermline. Strange that he's being lent out when we're so short of defenders but I'm sure there's a good reason.

February 03: Kevin Dixon, Jon Woodgate and Alan Smith are all in the England U-18 squad for the game against France next week. But there's no place in the senior squad for Lee Bowyer: Mystic Glenda's influence is widely believed to have hung around just long enough to screw up this selection.

February 03: Gary Kelly's injury is proving more persistent and troublesome than was hoped. Despite an extensive rest and very light training since his op, he was still feeling pain and will now be rested for the remainder of the season in the hope that he can make a comeback next August.

February 02: It seems that Willem Korsten's absence from the squad at the Dell wasn't down to injury or a training ground bust-up. No bad news at all in fact: he was allowed to take a short break to get married: his wedding had been carefully planned to take place in the winter break in the Dutch season - which of course is something we don't have over here (unless we get an extra week off by getting knocked out in the 3rd round of the FA Cup....). Congratulations mate!

February 02: Former Leeds boss Howard Wilkinson is called in to take charge of the England set-up while a replacement is found for Glenn Hoddle. After the incompetence of Taylor, the Cockney wide-boy Venables (described by the courts as unfit to run a company so what was he doing in charge of the England team) and multiple-God-botherer Hoddle, it's uncertain who will take up the poisoned chalice next. Time to call in Ron Atkinson :-).

February 02: The Irish youth team coach has failed to follow Howard Wilkinson's sensible lead by selecting Stephen McPhail for the pointless tournament in Nigeria.

February 02: Lee Sharpe's move to Sampdoria looks in doubt as David Platt's position looks increasingly precarious. Samp - who have not won since Platt's arrival - may look to dispense with his services rather than ride out the storm caused by his lack of qualifications and - without being too racist - the fact that he's not Italian.

February 02: Gary Kelly pulled out of the reserve game at the last minute after feeling a twinge and it was thought best not to risk him. Clyde Wijnhard scored the only goal in the 1-0 win.

February 01: The reserves are in action tonight, and it's hoped that Gary Kelly and Alan Maybury will continue their comebacks from long-term injuries.

February 01: The idiot in the crowd who threw a coin at Saints' player Patrick Colleter will be banned from Leeds home and away games - if he's identified. Someone was arrested but it's not clear if this was the moron in question.
