Promising young winger who has done well in the reserves and
impressed the locals during a spell on loan at Bury early in
2001-02. He's been on the bench for the first team - and folks who
regularly see the reserves tell me he deserves at least a few
minutes on the pitch in the Premier League to show what he can do.
He also had a loan spell at Bristol City and although he made a
similarly impressive start he failed to settle in the West Country
and made a swift return to Leeds.
Realistically it looks like he's not going to make it in the
Leeds first team, and 2003-04 has seen him farmed out on loan to
Bury again - although Peter Reid said he will consider recalling
him if he plays well. Unfortunately, Harpal suffered a dislocated
shoulder while on loan at Bury and looks like being out for the
rest of the season.
avey says: I think Harpal is a promising youngster who should be
given a chance in the first team.
P Mattu says: For Harpal Singh to play Premiership football
would do great justice for Leeds United. Not only would this be an
addition to the efforts of Peter and David in repairing the recent
damage to the club, it would improve community relations. As for an
Asian Sikh to be given a chance to play for a top club as Leeds,
would allow other young Asians wanting to follow an ambassador in
his foot-steps. I hope to see Harpal playing in the first team
sooner than later.
Siddhartha says: I wish I was at least born in England so that I
could also play like Harpal, but being born in India I had to
subdue my love for soccer.
Paramvir Bhogal says: I feel very proud to find that a fellow
Sikh has made it to the first team of a top premiership club. I
also hope that this will be the start of serious Asian presence in
the footballing world. Hats off to you Harpal Singh!
Louise says: I am a Bury fan and Harpal was a credit to Leeds
while he played for us. Cracking little player with great speed and
some great finishes only wish we could have kept him, would have
helped us through our trouble stop at the mo. He will do great at
Varun Gopalakrishnan says: I am a Leeds United fan and I am from
India. Many other Indians like me who watch English Premier League
will be proud if they watch Harpal Singh come and play for one of
the top class teams in the EPL. Hope he will do great.
Amandeep Singh says: I was really proud when I saw Harpal Singh
in one of the soccer magazine. From that time onwards I started to
follow on the latest of Harpal. HARPAL SINGH PLEASE MAKE US
Dilly says: Harpal Singh!! Damn too bad he wasnt born in India,
him and Bhutia (india's maradona, BURY FC FORWARD) could of done
some damage, India was a point away from 2nd round world cup
qualifying. But India will be there in 2006! good Luck
Ashwin Chandrasekaran says: I think Harpal Singh should play for
the indian national team. They may not be good right now but who
knows? with players like him joining the indian team we might even
manage to qualify for the world cup in the near future. I also
think that he will get far more recognition in the indian team than
if he plays for england
Jitesh Patel says: I'd like to know if anyone knows wether
Harpal is doing a law degree? Someone told me that he is and I'd
like to know if he does. it is difficult to juggle a degree and
Gurdit Dhaliwal says: I saw him play in a 7 a-side tournament in
Singapore in 2001. He did well although he got injured after just
the first game. From the little that I saw, I am sure he has the
potential to go far...only question is his determination. I think
he is THE player who can help Leeds undo their PR mess with him
being Asian and all. Wish he was at man Utd, my favourite EPL
Punam Kalirai says: Harpal Singhs my dads cousin
SRC says: Harpal singh to play first team football, would be a
huge benefit to the asian people. This would encourage more asian
kids to play. good luck to Harpal.
Przemek says: think that Singh will be new star from Leeds
attack.I played 'Championship manager'. He was the best in my
Indranil Aich says: Harpal Singh should definitely play for
Indian National Team - along with Bhaichung Bhutia,as a striking
force.India would soon become a powerful team in very near
Saptarshi Chakravorty says: i am an avid follower of premier
league.All indians would love to see harpal/michael play in the
premiership.He should be given a chance and fast!!!!We can't
S Deol says: Harpal - when are we going to see you play for the
first team? And how long are you prepared to wait???? Rooting for
Barry from Somerset says: Harpel came down and played a few
games for Bristol City last season, he`s a good little player who
i`m sure we will see a lot more of in the future. I have sent his
picture to you for this page if you need it.
Rajinder Singh says: Harpal Singh hes a class palyer he my
Iqbal Singh says: I saw Harpal make his debut for Bradford on
saturday and he has loads of potential...stay off the paratais
Asees Mann says: man i sure can't wait to see an indian kick @$$
in the priemereship, we already rock at cricket,gulli danda,
kabbadi. I guess footie is next on the list. don't worry ya all in
another three years ill b joining the priemereship and then me and
guys like harpal sure can kick @$$!!!
Jaspal Singh says: I'm a Wolves fan and I've seen harpal play. I
think he is a speedy little player and I hope he signs for Wolves 1
day. DO US ALL PROUD SINGH!
Shaun Hobson says: I used to play with Harpal for Leeds City
Boys when we were younger. I would like to add that he is a great
friend and when he is on that field one day in the 1st team. I
honestly feel for the opposition.
Harry Singh Lota says: Harpal. your the best player and just
come back to Leeds. kidda paji.
Santosh says: Why aren't u playing stilll....man we r
gng gravesend says: It's about time Venables picks Harpal, just
like he has with some of his other youngsters like milner, he'll
take his chance, just needs to be given one. hello to the albion
lads - bradford.
Ali Ahmed says: I wish i am wrong but i don,t think harpal singh
will play in the premiership because i believe there is a bit of
racism there, i mean how long does he have to wait, he ain't
getting any younger
Onkar Shergil says: Well done Harps.... Any day now we will see
the first asian footballer to make it big time! Vennebles needs to
read all these messages!Singh means Lion and Harpal plays like
Mark Wilson says: Alright Harpal, saw u & Caleb at Creation
last a couple of weeks back! hope u get a 1st team appearance
Raj Thakkar says: What were Harpal's performances like at
Bradford - does anyone know? Did he do himself justice? Anyway, I
hope we sign him for Leicester - Walkers Stadium is bound to
Harpal says: This guy iz da man, he will pave the way for other
Asian players. Jus hope he will get in the first team.
Kulvinder Singh says: Harpal is the best ever he will break into
Leeds 1st team soon!!!!!!!!!!1
Gurminder Dhoot says: harpal keep on giving it your all, coz its
only a matter of time before you'll be in the permiership making
people like roy Keane look stupid!
John Foster says: With the current crisis in Leeds attack -
Bakke playing up front - sureley we can give Harpal a 15 minute
run-out. What is the point of having a reserve squad if not for
crisis like these?
Taldeep Singh says: I know you will do us proud singh!!!! Can u
giv me any advise in2 getting noticed by a club???
Rav Sohi says: I followed Harpals spell at Bury from their
website and match reports. Clearly an asset to Leeds. Well done
fella. Just seeing Singh on the back of your shirt is an
inspiration for young Sikh lads. Perseverance is the key and I'd
put money on him breaking out in the premiership. All the best. PS.
Glory Glory Man Utd!
Sunny Singh Gill says: although i'm a liverpool supporter i
would just like to say tere sade ke! hope you make it into the
premiereship and do us singhs proud. been long time waitin for a
asian to make onto the scene. best of luck brother!
Tania says: Surely Peter Reid should give this speedy, sexy
Indian a chance up front. I thought he was amazing at Bury and it
is just racist managers in his way at the moment!
R S Bains says: A message to Mr Reid, it looks like your
Premiership safety is assured. What better time to experiment.
Harpal Singh is young, English AND left sided. Give him 10 mins at
least, your gonna help make history, cheers. p.s if nothing else,
think about all the extra t.v and replica shirt sales money you
would generate in UK and Indian sub continenet if Harpal got a
Aussie_larakin says: Mr. Reid, u have just taken over from terry
veneables and u could become a hero at leeds if you let harpal have
a go with the english premier league. he's a promising young winger
and also plays on the left hand side. Harry Kewell is a superstar
on the left hand side but if u give harpal 10 mins each game im
sure that harpal can get used to it. And also there have been talks
of Harry Kewell going to Spanish Giants Barcelona or German big
guns Borrusia Dortmund so after he leaves you would have a lad that
is capable of playing on the left hand side..... Im australian and
i realy dont like harry leaving neway... lol
Punam Kalirai says: haps shud play 4 leeds cause he's sharp and
has got loads of skill. Even though he's my cousin, i think he's
much better than Wilcox, who looks like a stick. GO HARPAL . We'll
be chanting your name soon!
Smithy's number 1 babe says: I think Harpal is c**p. We should
sell him !
Shamya Dasgupta says: Hi. Am writing from New Delhi, India.
Really want to know how good Harpal really is and what he has done
for Leeds and/or Bradford and Bristol over the past year. He sounds
good. But is he that good actually? What do the records say?
Tarndeep says: I am a goalkeeper playing in Seattle, USA and
reading about Harpal Singh is simply amazing. Maybe in the future
we could have more Asian players who have idols like you. Hats of
to Harpal Singh!
Sundeep Singh Chamkila says: Harpal is a true G!!!! and deserves
to b treated like 1 that includes playing in the premier
Naz says: There are only two words that can describe Harpal,
Johnny lord says: if harpel dont make it there will be a small
section of leeds fans who were at a york pre-season who'll not
forget him - HARPEL GIS THE BALL HARPEL HARPEL GIS THE BALL - and
he did. top bloke
Abbas Ahymed says: Harpals great and should be given a chance,
iplay 4 preston f.c. iv sin him......he is awesome in my eyes!
Aman says: Well done Harps 4 getting this far. I hope that u
break into the 1st team @ leeds and score a couple past manutd.
P.S. watch out for me in the future because i'll be breakin through
the 1st team @ chelsea!
Sudhir Patel says: Why on earth should Harpal Singh play for
India, given that he is British? Hasn't India got nearly a billion
other people to find a decent player from?
scotty wright says: he is a big man wotch owt 4 him dont sell
him leeds my e-mail adress is firstname.lastname@example.org eny 1 wonts 2

Dav Singh says: Harpal Singh is doing the Sikh Community proud.
He should consider seriously about staying at leeds though. Maybe
he should show his talent at another club and get his chance to
play in the premier league. UPANA PUNJABBBBBBBBBBB!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kal Heer says: I met Harpal Singh when he first came to my house
with his brother to sort out marriage with my sister. I didn't know
who he was, but knew he played football. He's a sound bloke, who is
very professional.. i mean the man never had a beer or a bacardi n
coke!! He even skipped on the spicy samosa's and sabjee incase he
couldn't perform in training.. dedication.. fair play!! Just
waiting for the invite to go and see him play.. or will probably
have to wait till after the wedding.. maybe leeds will be playing
division 1 by then against my team.. COVENTRY!!! Good luck Singh..
and see you at the wedding..
pav says: went to school with singh.. he wasnt anything special
and to be honest i still don't think he is, plenty better at leeds

g' says: i have never seen harpal singh play but heard alot
about him. he sounds like a good player but leeds aint playing him.

from his loan and played him.
