Jabba's Comments

Talented left-sided/central midfielder picked up from Derby in 2001-02. He's not played that many games yet - and a suspension and injury have also restricted his chances to impress us all - but he looks to be a solid and industrious player in the mould of David Batty, and with Batts starting to slow down a little, Seth could prove to be a worthy successor as the midfield anchor. He does have a bit of a temper - and has picked up a couple of needless bookings, but with experience and age he should be able to sort himself out and make a massive contribution to Leeds' success over the next couple of years.

With the club approaching financial meltdown, a fee was agreed with Boro and he was packed off to the north-east. But such were the concerns about the state of his dodgy knees that the transfer fell through and he was welcomed back to Elland Road by a grateful Terry Venables, who appeared to have totally run out of fit midfielders at the time.

After yet another op and yet more recovery time in summer 2003, Johnson is finally set to play a full season for Leeds, and in his pre-season performances he's shown some of the bite and commitment that we're going to need in spades throughout the year.

KuraKura says: The news is there are so many Leeds fans in Indonesia whether you care about it or not, and I guess none of us know that now Seth plays for Leeds. Is he as good as in the Championship Manager game? If he is, let us see!

Ben Walton says: what a player, coming on for his first game and scoring an own goal. 10 out of 10 what a performance. A player for the future but a poor start to his Leeds career.

Owain Davies says: I recently saw Seth Johnson play against Everton in the league and I thought that he was outstanding. He put in one of the best midfield performances that I have seen all season and I think he will be a great player in future years

avey says: The next David Batty.

m.french says: I've got a pair of seth's boots. they are adidas predator precision and have "seth" stitched into the tongue. i'm open to reasonable offers for them

libby says: My cousin went to school with him in dawlish devon and he still goes back clubbing in teignmouth there

rechard pelchard says: I met seth once, what a lovely chap had some teeth on him though.

Anon says: I work where Seth's doing his community service!!!

Anon says: Seth Johnson was one of the best players of all time to come out the crewe alexandra acadamy. he always gives 100% and would be the perfect player for the that left side for england.he will be the fans favourite at leeds wen he gets playin every game.

Laura says: Yeah KuraKura, Johnno is gr8 in my pc game 2. my m8 luvs seth bcoz he is an ex-ram! put he aint a derby reject, he's a Leeds baby. I av 2 say tho i agree wiv her cos i luv him 2. Who couldnt?! Shame bout the drink drivin agen (i no twas AGES ago but hey thats life). We were convinced he wud go 2 jail. then wat wud we play? "3 across the middle + 1 in bloody pentonville"- haha i luv Mike Bassett it a gr8 film any1 seen it? we luv u seth

H says: Seth's a quality player, will be very good for Leeds when he gets a full season under his belt. As a Crewe fan, I hope he does well, as he is my favourite ever Alex player, ahead of the likes of Danny Murphy, Neil Lennon etc etc..

Annabel and derby's lee holmes says: I have seth johnsons socks from Derby's last game of season in 99/00 season!He ended up givin all his clothes away and doin lap of honour in his pants.Wat a lovely sight.Laura, did i say you could mention me on this website???Serouisly good luck sethy baby,but if you feel like coming back to derby at anytime then im sure we would gladly have you back cos we need players!ANY players will do. I've heard smithy would like to come and play for Derby cos of what seth's said to him bout what a good club it is!So say goodbye to smithy

Smithy's lass 17 (need i say more?!) says: Yep Annabel i can mention u on this website + if u don't wanna me 2 then tuff, cos i am + i did. u need 2 get away from ur delusion + wake up cos seth is mine now (obv i mean ours Leeds fans!) + he aint neva gonna cum bak 2 Derby! as 4 Smithy as if he's gonna cum 2 derby- DREAM ON. hehe.

Annabel says: Seth,danny higgenbothem says that you were his fave roommate while at derby. Would you still like to room with him even though he's at sounthampton.

Seths Girlfriend says: Thanks for all being so supportive of Seth, he loves Leeds and cant wait to get regular games again. His knees are still causing him a few problems but he's playing and hopefully it wont be too long!

Derby Daz says: Seth & your goalkeeper regularly go clubbing in Derby and s*** pig ugly Nottingham women! Derby lasses are too classy for 'em!!! Up the Rams! Derby til we die.

annabel.super,super rams says: derby daz--looks like there's only me and you have any sense around here!but i have to say im a derby lass(well burton)and i have to say i would shag paul robinson!sorry bout you feel bout zava goin?saw him clubbing in zanzibars he is gorgeous.brought him a drink to say by then got a birthday card off him!did you see my other message?the one where it says i got seths socks.oh by the way lee holmes aint goin anywhere and toms signing new contract.anyway of cousre we're stayin up hope leeds do otherwise i got my mate to compete with!xxx

Mollie says: Annabel Are you really Lee Holmes girlfriend, I know him. Isn't he embarrassed by you comments. How old are you!

Jamie says: Is seth's girlfriend called jennie?

Rachael says: seth nows me and if you see im and ask him do u know sarah byrnes best friend rachael who u were texting he will say yes.
