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.

There is an unspoken contract between the fans and the club. Marcus Evans has ripped up this contract.
It is a Question of Caring and Camps by TimS
I accept that it is very different following Town away from Suffolk. You do not pick up on the mood on the street in Suffolk and there is something very different thinking about your club through the media whether Town are playing in Suffolk or throughout the UK.

It was a warm Friday evening in late May and almost a thousand Ipswich fans had a date with Bobby Robson at Portman Road.
The Nearly Men by ElephantintheRoom
Throughout the Robson years, Town built an enviable reputation for producing homegrown talent. Young players seemed to slip into the first team almost on demand. For over a decade the team prospered with only the occasional ‘missing piece’ sourced from elsewhere.
John O’Rourke – Unsung Hero by ElephantintheRoom
Town supporters of a certain age look back rather fondly at Bill McGarry’s promotion team of 1967/68. We may be grey. But our memories are vivid. That team of half a century ago signalled something of a rebirth and laid firm foundations for the many good times that lay ahead.
