Kewell git
Hop-a-long Kewell - dropped  his wallet on his foot
Tuesday, July 22, 2003

So 'Dirty Harry Cruel' has hurt his poor lickle leg.. awwww! Enjoy the moment with fellow Leeds fans in our forum. The mendacious little pratt got what he deserved.

Now we hear that Cruel is giving up international football because of lack of support from Soccer Australia over his move to "Liespool".

Well, Harry, the Socceroos are too bloody embarrassed by the greed of you and your agent, sorry your commercial manager, Bernie "Bad Hair Day" Mandic, (no one apparently has ever heard of your real agent).

They're trying to find a rock to hide under! You're the turd in their swimming pool, you idiot! So now you're gonna take your ball home? You immature baby, you'll be blubbing in a minute! Give him a little red skirt to play in next season.

Zoumana Camara

Patrick Vier.. oh, sorry, Zoumana Camara. Let's hope he doesn't play like Titi!

Leeds close to Camara loan deal

Peter Reid is about to make his second summer signing with Lens' French international defender Zoumana Camara set to seal a one-year loan deal at Leeds. Peter Reid showed at Sunderland that he can spot a good French player when he signed David Bellion who, it appears, is one of the few players that actually wants to go to ManUre this season!

Lens have confirmed that the centre back is set to sign for Leeds on their official website:

'The loan of Camara to Leeds United should, if all parties agree, go ahead today.

After centre backs Rio Ferdinand and Jonathan Woodgate deserted the faithful last season and Teddy Lucic (last season's on-loan central defender) joined Bayer Leverkusen Peter Reid is short of central cover. With both Matteo and Radebe susceptible to knee problems it is vital to next season that we have cover for both. Michael Duberry's performance on Saturday at Bristol will not have filled the manager with confidence and made the search all the more pressing.

Reid on Jody Morris

Peter Reid is confident he can keep a more mature Jody Morris on the straight and narrow following his arrival at Elland Road.
Morris became Reid's first signing on Friday when he signed a 2 year contract, joining Leeds on a Bosman after his release from Chelsea. Jody arrives with a tarnished reputation; he was among a number of Chelsea players involved in a drinking session at Heathrow Airport within hours of the September 11 tragedy, angering fellow passengers.

Furthermore, the former England Under-21 international was also cleared last August on a charge of affray after getting embroiled in an incident with a bouncer at a nightclub in Knightsbridge, along with Chelsea team-mate John Terry.

Morris, who scored nine goals in 173 appearances for Chelsea but found himself surplus to requirements under boss Claudio Ranieri, arrives at Elland Road with a clean slate as far as Reid is concerned.

"He's had a couple of off-the-field problems, but I'm quite confident in the boy," asserted Reid.
"He appears to have some maturity about him now and I can guide him down the right path. He also feels he's got something to prove and I like those kind of players. I think he'll do a good job for us."

Reid is confident Morris' feistiness will add steel to a previously weak central midfield, particularly if he can forge a partnership with David Batty, who returned to the first team for the first time in 15 months on Saturday in a goalless pre-season friendly draw at Bristol City.

"Jody is a good footballer and you can't have enough of them," added Reid on Morris, who was a regular for the Blues when Gianluca Vialli was in charge.
"For a little lad in stature, he's very feisty when the ball's around. I think he can create, handle a ball well and whip things up.
"Away from home we've looked solid and good on the break, but at Elland Road we've been anxious because the pressure is on you to force the game, so we need him to get on the ball and control games for us."

Reid, though, concedes he almost missed out on Morris after reading about the player's wage demands in the papers, but swooped when he realised he was affordable, stealing him from under the nose of Cardiff.

"I was reading all over about the money that was being asked for by him and it was too much for us,"added Reid.
"But when I found out that I could afford it, it wasn't an impulse buy, it was a great deal."
