Kebe and the 49ers at Elland Road

Jimmy Kebe has finalized his loan move to Leeds United until the end of the season today. The move was made in time for him to feature against Sheffield Wednesday in tomorrow’s televised match at Hillsborough.

I for one am extremely satisfied with this signing. This is the one that really stands out and shows our intent on getting back into contention for promotion. Kebe has worked previously with Brian McDermott at Reading and part of me has this feeling that it could spark Hunt into action. Hunt has just returned from a lengthy injury and it’s abundantly clear he hasn’t received the service required for him to thrive at Elland Road.

Either way it’s showing the ambition of our owners and Brian. Together they are showing the Elland Road faithful that if it’s possible, they can try and make it happen.

In other news from Elland Road today, a slight curve ball that nobody can honestly say they were expecting. Leeds United announced a partnership deal with the San Francisco 49ers. This move will see both businesses meet up and share ideas and successes as Leeds look to expand there already global brand. This can be nothing short of a smart move from Haigh and co, publicity of this level will do no harm at all.

If there is one thing resolved today, I have found an American Football team to look out for and follow their progress. Life at Leeds is certainly on a thrill a minute ride.

Finally Brian McDermott mentioned on Talk Sport today that he hasn’t ruled out further signings at Leeds. Given the fact that Barnes and Wells have joined Burnley and Huddersfield today, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Becchio stories start to appear again. I for one would welcome him back with open arms, I think he could be that final piece missing. Another player is like to see at ER is Adam La Fondre, with the BMcD links it’s one deal that could happen.

I am really confident that Leeds can get back on track tomorrow at Hillsborough and put in a performance. Let’s also use the width we can now exploit, Kebe and Stewart it’s time to shine boys!! A 3-1 Win is my Prediction!
