Robson's Rumours List 2004-05

Who's Coming/Going...(allegedly)

This section details the welter of transfer speculation linking us with players from clubs across the galaxy, as well as alleged departures from our happy band. Rather than replicate stories day after day we simply make a reference the first time a rumour reaches us.

The Rumours List should be read in conjunction with the transfers page, which details actual rather than potential / imagined / made-up movements to and from Gallowgate. therefore, if a move comes to fruition after being rumoured, you'll find precise details on transfers, not rumours.
