|Hearts Pair Linked|
Tuesday, 10th Nov 2009 09:10
Town are keeping an eye on Hearts pair Lee Wallace and Jose Goncalves, according to a tabloid report this morning. Manager Roy Keane is said have sent scouts to Scotland on a regular basis this season and is ready to offer £2 million for left-back Wallace in January.
Wallace, 22, came through the youth system at Hearts, making his senior debut in 2004. The Edinburgh-born defender won his first full Scotland cap in October, having previously played at U19, U20 and U21 levels. He is contracted to Hearts until 2012.
In 2006 Wallace was fined £1,500 for possessing an airgun and earlier this year was fined £1,100 after a bust-up with bouncers outside a nightclub.
Goncalves, 24, plays either at left-back or centre-half and is out of contract next summer. The Blues are said to be considering offering the former Portuguese U21 international a pre-contract agreement in January ahead of a Bosman move next summer.
The Lisbon-born defender previously played for Swiss sides Basel, Winterthur and Thun, having been brought up in Switzerland, in Italy with Venezia, in Lithuania with Kaunas and last season was on loan at Nuremberg in Germany.
The report also again claims that Town have had a bid turned down by Stoke for defensive pair Leon Cort and Danny Higginbotham, something which Roy Keane and Tony Pulis have both denied.
Meanwhile, Town’s reserves are in action against Haverhill Rovers in the quarter-finals of the LB Group Suffolk Premier Cup at Portman Road this evening (KO 7.45pm).

Keane wont be here in Jan (hopefully) so dont htink these two will be coming!
However if he is here in Jan that would hoepfully mean he has turnt the fortunes around!
Why not buy one of these befroe we wasted money on Delaney - KEane your a joke!
|yarmoblue added 09:47 - Nov 10|
is delaney not a good center back
|rubberblood added 09:53 - Nov 10|
at last we are looking at the defence, something which should of happened back when de-vos was released.

@CGS .... "GET DARREN FERGUSON NOW"??!?
You are joking, right? You (and the other anti-Keanites) wanted Keano sacked because we were bottom, yet you now want the man who actually WAS sacked because his club are bottom? Random.
Fine, it may be your opinion, but the words "frying pan", "fire", and "jump" come to mind, lol.
Missed the banter with you - its been a while!

Paper talk.. we don't need a left back or centre half especially not from the pub league that is the SPL. Get a settled side and stick with it. Next stop the Playoffs! COYB

CGS - Were you there saturday?? don't think so which is why i cant believe you have the audacity to say delaney isnt a good centre back, granted he hasnt been fantastic at LB but sat and previously he looked solid.
I'm over your armchair negative comments, Go and support UTD and post dross on their messageboards.
Dobs is right with his comment about getting another manager who has been sacked because his team are bottom!!!"GET DARREN FERGUSON NOW" what a joke of a statement
"If you have nothing good to say, then don't say anything at all".

Yes its been a while, and I knew someone would question that but hear me out.
He got Peterboroug promoted in consecutive seasons with little money. When starting in the championship he had no money, and honestly was prob expected to be bottom!To get a club p-romoted two seasons running shows how well he can gel a group of players! They may not be the most talented bunch but they were promoted and played well together. He won 50% of his games according to sky sports. Wer have some excellent players at ipswich (some are some of the best in this league leadbitter, rosenior, d.wright) and all they need, I think is for someone to come in and install a bit of unity. I dont think darren ferguson would come in and start slaggin of players (kaene style)! He would give therm confidence.
Also as aI have said befor ewe wuold start winning if keane was sacked and I was installed as manager! As soon as Keane leaves the players will give alot more!
|Bergholtblue added 10:29 - Nov 10|
Get Wallace in. Then we can go shooting up the table! (Joke get it?)
|Ipswich1984 added 10:33 - Nov 10|
I have seen both of these players play and think Wallace would be an excellant addition, better than anything we alrady have.
Not too sure what Goncalves would add though.
I think if we offer the 2 million that is being suggested then we shouldnt have any problems getting Wallace, hearts chairman is happy to take any money he can get his hands on.

Whilst I am shocked at the disgraceful decision to sack Fergie jr. - he is not what we need at our club to lead us out of the mire..we need experience and enthusiasm,neither of which "Keano" seems to possess.
& Q....why have we signed another goalie?..does Roy intend rotating them as often as his strikers?
& regards to the 2 Hearts players - it strikes me that Keane's answer to the fact that he can't get the best out of his current squad of players (he did this at sunderland too) is to go and buy some more....and then some more.....and then some more.............etc etc.

cor on psp Championship Manager 2008 sign Goncalves from hearts
hes 2k and is a great player
just thought u wanted to know, im off to play MW2
|TedTurnip added 10:41 - Nov 10|
CGS - Sometimes I think you have a point, although I definately dont want Keano sacked. What you say about Darren Ferguson is just utter rubbish. If he were appointed you would be the first on here slagging him off after his first loss. Then you would probably be calling for Dave Basset or Peter Reid.
|Surco72 added 10:43 - Nov 10|
Is this so we can drop Wright again ?
And Delaney has played ok at centre back but is not as good as Macauley and Smith or Wood who is supposed to be coming IMO and has only played at centre back due to injuries so is an expensive squad player signing at best ?
|FormerlyCGS added 10:52 - Nov 10|
Keanoitfc change your car before you call me a mug!
Feguson would do a much better job than Keane! He would not be my first choice but my hatred for keane is such that most people I would want instead of him!
Delaney is crap is not good enough at left back, centre back - I wouldnt even want him on the bench! for thos who say he is a great palyer, it makes sense your happy with us being in the relegation, happy for keane to stay and ruin us even more and happy to have a waster like this at centre back!
|Skip73 added 10:59 - Nov 10|
CGS You say that Leadbitter, Rosenior and D Wright are some of the best in this league but are always saying RK is clueless. Well RK signed 2 of those players didn't he? We are now 5 games unbeaten (ok 4 draws) but we are starting to head in the right direction so get of RK's back.

Congratulations callum, you're the biggest twonk on here for quite some time.
|hype313 added 11:06 - Nov 10|
"Who asked you Hype"
No one callum, just get riled by the negativity and judging by the rest of us, you are in the minority here with your mis-spelt comments.

im so so lost......has Alex Ferguson and Roy Keane falling out? why cant we get any loan players from Man United e.g Macheda or Welbeck? Why cant Roy attracted any Loan Players? it doesnt matter about our league position as to a loan player if doesnt matter to them if we go down or stay up they will return back to there club!!! Where has Richard Wright gone? i understand he has been dropped but where actually is he? not even on the bench!!! Why cant we attract any players?, dont reply with because we are near the bottom as thats rubbish!!!
I am so concerned for ITFC, my opinion is not important but the welfare of the club is!! I want KEANE to stay but im worried real worried!!! EVEN JM COULD CAPTURE SANTOS ON LOAN LAST SEASON!!
|UEFA81 added 11:13 - Nov 10|
At least RK now realises that it is possible to potentially sign players or are neither from Ireland or Sunderland cast-offs.
But, I agree, there will be NO progress made in our fortunes while 'Let's all bow down and worship him' Keane is in charge. That is definite in my mind and should be with anybody else who has even an iota of common sense.
|FormerlyCGS added 11:25 - Nov 10|
Maybe two of them were his signings but delaney priskin healy were also his. He done this at sunderalnd for every decent signing there are 2/3 poor ones!
The biggest twonks on here are the ones who want keane to stay
|devontractorboy added 11:43 - Nov 10|
Stop arguing you lot, you're givin me a freaking headache!!!
Look we all support the same team (I think) & some love Keane and some hate him. If he's done this to us (the supporters) imagine what it's like in the changing room!!
I know I keep repeating myself but Keanes record thus far, is to take a top ten team, change and get rid of some staff he shouldn't have and have us with ONE win in 15 & second bottom in the table. That's the FACTS, now my argument is that almost anyone else other than the self styled God like Keane would have been down the job centre by now!!
Where do we go from here, well I don't like Keane, didn't like him as a player or as a manager, petulant, violent and a Pee poor example to youngsters, I've seen nothing thus far to change my mind. I really hope he turns it around and proves me wrong, I love my club that much, but the omens ain't good and I wonder how much longer Marcus Evans will tolerate this???
Anyhow, stop insulting each other and support the blues, see you in Sheffield on 21st, tis a long old poke from down here!!!!!!
