It's just a pity Dunne didn't break through before the Spring friendlies. Is it too late to play him against The North? Or should we just wait a few more months before even thinking about blooding him. It's really starting to look like he'll be the next player for MON to look at in terms of expanding the squad but there's no real window on the horizon where we can get him settled in, unless he plays so well that MON could feel confident giving him a debut in the qualifiers, perhaps against a lower-ranked team
    MONROY will soon knock that 'good passing' thing that Levein refers to out of his game.

    Is there any evidence that he is considering a switch?

    Over on ybig, a guy claims his brother in law knows one of Dunne's family and there is no hope of it happening!

    Must be true so! Seriously though, it just doesn't sound credible.

    There was one article, in one paper, with no quotes from the player, or either football association, with some glaring factual errors, and he's played for Ireland since that was published.

    The licence to print such crap should be revoked. As I said before, there's been some serious tripe published by the Indo relating to Irish football. They really need an editor to adopt some quality control.

    Returned to Burnley early. His loan spell expires in January but he got injured in training (ankle, 6 weeks) so he has gone back. Levein's quote suggests its for good.

    This quote makes it look like he will return
    However, he could be back at Tynecastle with a deal agreed in principle with the Clarets for the loan to be extended until the end of the season.
