Scurrilous Transfer Rumours

Linfield don't appear to be signing anyone. Yet. Now, there's a dearth of talent in the league, but it seems that we're going to start the new season with only 2 strikers, one of them a 39 year-old. Which is a disgrace. In the absence of real news, rumour and intrigue do the rounds, and I thought I'd reveal who has been mentioned.


Andy Smith (Ports) - I'd tear up my Season Ticket etc. Non goalscoring crock, would destroy team spirit with primadonna antics. Ideal DJ CF mould.

Mark McAllister (Dungannon) - no basis, apart from the fact he3 plays well against us and DJ picks him for the NI U23s.

Daryl Fordyce (Scum) - malicious, unsettling, unlikely.

John Convery (Ports) - heard this was a done deal, and one I'd welcome.

Wesley Boyle (Ports) - rumour been doing the rounds for over a month. We need a winger, but apparently this one plays well one in 5. Very possible.


Tommy Stewart - Still not gone, but apparently no longer in touch with the club, agent trying to get him a move back to England, Derry City and Glenavon and Glentoran sniffing around. My guess is he didn't get enough assurances from DJ that he'd be given a fair crack of the whip, that Ferguson will still be No. 9 next season, and so he's off.

Feel free to add your own.
