'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC On this day July 17th - All about Jermaine

A look back at what has happened at Leeds United on July 17th in recent history.

2007

Leeds are handed a boost with the news that striker Jermaine Beckford wants to stay at the club. Beckford spent the final few months of the season on loan at Scunthorpe United, helping them win promotion with 8 goals. Beckford is in Germany with the Leeds squad as they prepare for their three game tour.

2009
Ironically, two years to the day, Jermaine Beckford is taken off the transfer list at Elland Road. Beckford was placed on the transfer list at the end of last season after failing to agree a new deal with Leeds.

Ken Bates decided after discussion with Leeds boss Simon Grayson to take Beckford off the transfer list, speaking on Yorkshire Radio Bates said 'We`re quite happy to keep him, he`s under contract until the end of the season, and we`re looking forward to him playing his part in getting us promoted this season'.

I see theres more articles on this site nowadays dealling with what leeds have done in the past rather than whats happening in real time ... Same old leeds,living in the past ... Still I suppose it gives you all some sort of welcome distraction from the reality of your current situation ... !!! Looking forward to playing you again this season lads,should be easier to take points off you with your depleated squad ...

The title of the thread is 'on this day' so its obviously going to be in the past. At least Leeds have a 'past' since WWII unlike some of our sour neighbors. The only time your stadium gets filled these days is if Leeds United or Leeds Rhinos visit.
