Jabba's Comments

Youth team player who has had some success in the reserves and is about to break into the first team squad. Made his first team debut in Florence against Hapoel Tel-Aviv and put in a very self-assured display when he had to come on for the injured Lucas Radebe.

2003-04 will provide a stern test of his abilities and maturity as the injury-prone regulars at the heart of Leeds' defence will almost certainly give him enough opportunity to show what he can do.

woodys_gal says: if he's as good as woody then leeds r proud to have him!

kk says: Word is that Kilgallon is a better player than Woodgate was at this age. Great prospect.

Tom Kilgallon says: Matthew must be a descendant of the Kilgallons from Bohola, County Mayo, Ireland. How can I find out?

Ed H says: Used to live next door to Matthew when he was young. He had a habit of sneaking through the hedge to play footy with me and my brother, with that sort of dedication he was always destined for greatness!!

Donna *smithys number 1* says: Matty ure wkd! n i think u did really well when terry put ya in like i sed u n fraser r gunna b huuugggee! n ure very gd lookin but thst beside the point! ure gunna b gr81 keep it up!

Killers gal says: He is a very good player, better than woodgate and better looking!!!

Sarah *Matthews Kilgallons gal* says: Hiya..Young Killer *as nigel calls you when we met him* you are so good looking that its untrue

Lisa Turner says: just want to say your very gud lookin and your my close favourite after smithy. but i also want to say how good you are, and you will be playing regular first team football very soon im sure of that!also your birthday is the day after mine(just thought id say)! keep up the good work!xx

*Matts_girl* says: I went to the leeds v tots game and i met him after the match and i got my pic take with him and he is even betta lukin in real life!!!!!! plus in the pic hes got his arm round me!!!!

petey says: One of the best young players in the country! u put in a performance every week for the reserves, carnt understand why your not a regular in the first's!

Giuse Kilgallon says: Hi Matt. Just letting you know your not the only Matt Kilgallon who has fabulous talent there is one here in Perth Western Australia, and I think he is better looking than you, ah but i would say that I'm his Mum.

Julian says: i spotted matthew the other day near his new home in acomb, he was feeding a horse on a street corner

Tich says: he gave me his shirt on the last game of the season. top kid. ope e comes a united great.

yesss welcome back! says: he's played one game on loan at westham and already he's proving he's got what it takes to mix it up in the premiership!!!! peter reed, why look for more players when you've already got a star right under your nose!!!

Adam says: Hi mat if u read this its Adam havent seen you for a few weeks hope ure havin a good time! Keep up the good work! Mat goes out with my cousin so i see him quite reguarly. Hes a realy gud lad.

and again please...... says: peter reed, you've got all these players on loan and when they leave you'll be left with nothing! because your treating the majority of the young players, pertential stars poorly!!

Nax Garkiw says: All I can say is thank God his loan spell at Upton Park is nearly over, because, with Matteo injured again, and Da Chief mysteriously out of the side, we need someone to come in and oust the utterly ineffectual Roque Jr. And since he's used to playing alongside Dubes in the Reserves, a central partnership of Duberry-Kilgallon could sort out our defensive woes. And if nothing else, his regular presence in the side could earn us a few million in transfer fees a year or two from now.

Mark Kilgallon says: Great to see a Kilgallon is doing the name proud (unlike the rest of us). Best of luck Matt.

Laura, Burton whistle says: Glad 2 av Kilgallon bak wiv us! he is so like Jonny Woodg8 that its scary. can rememba wen he came on against Hopeless Tel Aviv (4-1!!- Smith 30, 54, 62, 83[not positive that they're rite]). Thort he luked da spit of our ex-baby Woody. wud b gr8 2 c him playin in our defence wiv Woody tho wudn't it?! saw him playin the ova wk in England U-20s wiv Milner + we thort he was gr8.Like I say glad 2 av him bak from West Ham (haha- u got releg8ed + we're not gonna b). So hah Liam- we're not goin down wiv Leicester- Wolves + Bolton r! or Villa, or Blackburn, or M**U. Yeah wudn't that b gr8??!!

lofthouse says: I went to school with matt he was a good player then well still is.A school matt plaed im midfield he was good they to

leedsluva says: a few words mattie BETTER THAN WOODGATE! matties different he wont desert us unlike woody!!!!

~smithy!! i luv ya!!~ says: i have seen matt play. ooohh!! i hav 2 say he's juz fantastic.. i mean in his looks and yeah his football skills 2. Don't get me rong!!

sarah! says: hes gorge man!!!!! i think a lot of the youths are sooooooo fit!!!! he is way way way better than woodgate n his luks are incredibly better aswell!! hes a gr8 footie playa n i think he'll do well in the future! keep it up matt! xx

Damo Byrne says: Kilgallon's sure got great pedigree, potentially better than Woodgate, give him time!

jo kilgallon says: Would you consider playing for Ireland at would be quality to see a Kilgallon playing!

Brian Kilgallon says: Just heard about you Matt! What a CHAMP! I'm Brian Kilgallon (alias Killer) from Australia. There are only a few of us here in Aus. I came here as a lad from St Helens. My daughter, Laura is the same age as you. Would like you to email me if you can find time! All the best - from the Aussie Killer to the Pommy Killer!!

ian elliott says: killa is miles better than caldwell and duberry who just make mistakes all the time and if eddie is not going to radebe and matteo in their proper positions then killa should play it will be good experience for next season in division 1

Carmel says: Any relation to the Kilgallon's from Tyneside, Newcastle?

lufcgazza says: Kilgallon for england he absolutely quality!!!!! hel get us bak to premiership next year no probs!!!!

,p>Rovert A. Kilgallon says: I came on this site by accident, I'm from the USA and my grandfather was from Irland. I know I have family out there, I was just wondering. We'll i know one thing, if it comes to being competitive, "Kilgallon's" are very competitive people! I've grown up playing sports and it comes naturally. Matthew you keep it up bud! Robert Allen Kilgallon (florida)

shellie says: killgalon is my no1 player and the new next alan smith

Hanys says: I'm from Poland, I recently saw Killer playing for EnglandU-21 and I have no doubts he will be great international star soon!

Geoff Killgallon says: an elegent,confident style.surely a future england player? Question:is Matt related to Edward,Danny, Henry,Martin or Pat Kilgallon originally from the Thorne area?

Rob says: saw killa play 2day against millwall and he was fabulous! definately a 1st team player!
