Dundee United Boss Would Rebuff Town Bid
Monday, 10th Aug 2009 18:17
Dundee United manager Craig Levein says his club would turn down a bid from Town for midfielder Morgaro Gomis if one was made. The Blues have been widely reported to be ready to offer £800,000 for the Senegalese international.
Levein said: "I don't even know if Ipswich are going to make a bid, but that sort of figure will just be knocked back.
"Ipswich haven't made a bid for Morgaro. It's not something as the manager I would welcome. I do understand that if your players are playing well then there are other teams who would be interested in them.
"I also tell the players to use Dundee United as a springboard to go on to bigger and better things.
"What I'm annoyed about, looking at the figure mentioned in the papers, is that £800,000 is nowhere near the value we place on Morgaro Gomis."
Earlier today, Town manager Roy Keane was quoted as saying that the Blues would not be making any more purchases during the transfer window.

Avoiding Sunderland's Fate - Lessons From Sunderland Till I Die by vancouverblue
I was sat watching Netflix last night and the Sunderland Till I Die docuseries. As one episode turned into two and then five and thoughts of that decent night's sleep I knew I needed disappeared into the early hours, I couldnâ€™t help but think of the similarities between them last season and Town this year.
We'll Win Again Some Sunny Day by SpiritOfJohn
2018 has been a terrible year to be an Ipswich Town supporter.
Amazingly, we have only one twice at home this year, against Leeds in January and Barnsley in April.
What Would Eric Gates Say? by millvalleyblue
I started supporting Ipswich when I was six. Iâ€™m 49 now and live in Mill Valley, just north of San Francisco. I grew up in Cork. People always ask: Ipswich? Why? The reason was my best friend, Christopher, supported Ipswich. Iâ€™ve no reason why he did. All the other kids supported Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal or Leeds.
Feeling Very Blue Not Watching You by Pessimistic
Being an overseas supporter means I get to see all the live streams of Ipswich Town games for a seasonal subscription fee. Great idea! Well, it used to be, until one day I could not log in and asked iFollow to resend my password.
Man v Fat Football - A Personal Blog by GavTWTD
I'm fat. There, I said it. I'm a 248lb/112kg bloke in my late 40s and I'm struggling with my weight. I've lacked the will power to either do something about it or, when I've succeeded, to keep it off.
