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 Leeds.
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 PROUD
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 professional
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 team.
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 team
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 future.
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 cousins
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 waiting...!!
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 -
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
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 one!!!
Mark Wilson says: Alright Harpal, saw u & Caleb at Creation last a
couple of weeks back! hope u get a 1st team appearance soon.
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 packed.
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
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
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
Sundeep Singh Chamkila says: Harpal is a true G!!!! and deserves to
b treated like 1 that includes playing in the premier league!!!!!
Naz says: There are only two words that can describe Harpal, WELL
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
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
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 email@example.com eny 1 wonts 2 e_mail
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!
dave says: you should of let him play leeds united
indy says: i'm 16 and i play for bradford city u16's, i'm a sikh

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
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 that
could be given a go..

my heart..n im proud of them having a sikh in their team..even tho he
doesnt get played in the first team...hopefully eddie gray will see

or liverpool with n e singhs so they cn f off!
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. look at
the leeds team now they have a young team and wheres harpal at
bury. if leeds rated harpal highly they wud have bought him back from
his loan and played him.
