Rumour Mill-Snodgrass Leeds the Way!

Rumour Mill-Snodgrass Leeds the Way!

22-year-old Leeds striker and winger, Robert Snodgrass has been linked with a surprise move to Burnley but he seems settled at Elland Road.

Speaking to The Times he said:

'If they don't want to sell me, I don't want to leave. There's no point. This team will be there at some point in the next two years. Everything is set up to go right back to the top.There's no point being here if you think it stops when we get to the Championship.'

Snodgrass can play on either wing as well as being a striker.

Born in Glasgow, his first professional club was Livingston and before turning professional he turned down a move to Blackburn!(obviously a bright lad!)

He had a loan spell at Stirling Albion for the remainder of the 2006-07 season after signing for them in the 2007 January window.

The Scotland Under 21 international joined League One Leeds United in July 2008.

He has scored 14 times for Leeds in 64 appearances which is a pretty high return when you consider he will have been playing on the wing in some of those games.Ominously for any suitors though he signed a new four-year contract with Leeds at the start of this season.

Is the League one star good enough for Burnley ?

Off Tangent. Whilst feeding a bottle to my baby soon (2 am) I put last years highlights on. But found it hard to watch with Susan Boyle appearing ever 5 minutes or so! Anybody else had the same problem. Something that should be great to watch is slightly tainted now.

SC - I had similar problems reading the latest WTBM, which was published at about time of Goodison away, but which I didn't start reading till last weekend. (I actually prefer reading it once things have moved on a bit.) There were certainly some criticisms creeping in, but also still some god talk. I reckon in time that we'll enjoy looking back on the up-coyle, and also wonder why we didn't talk more determindely about his shortcomings, once the down-coyle had started. I also think it will be easier to enjoy watching the highlights of up to sometime this autumn, when we realise that those were indeed good times, but that we have been lucky to be able to start on a new track, wihout it costing us anything in severance pay.

I think this maybe more paper talk. Goal scoring (for his position)record speak for itself. It does however fit in with the way that Burnley want to move forward. Young and up and coming. Bet he wouldn't say no if asked. Perhaps a loan deal?

Maybe the opposite of up-coyle, shouldn't be down-coyle, but un-coyle, or even de-coyle, re-coyle or low-coyle? Anyway, perhaps Bfc deliberately started the Snodgrass talk because they had so much fun last time watching Master Bates let off steam? Meanwhile... any rumours about us signing any defenders yet? Or do we think that some proper coaching and sound tactics will make enough of a difference in that department? Who knows? How about barna-coyle, fick-coyle and tree-coyle?

That is, of course, as in tree-coyle tart.

Well we now know that he wasn't the ora-coyle which was, of course, sited at Delphi. As in Fabian Delph who used to play for Leeds. Can't see Snodgrass leaving Leeds for us at present. Realistically we could both be in the Championship next year so think CP has called it right and it will just be a bit of fun listening to Mr Unkempt Whiskers mumbling his way through this one. Could be something of a deba-coyle.

I would welcome a move for him but can't see it happening.
