John McGlynn: Plans to go into the transfer market

A player registration embargo imposed by the Scottish Premier League over late payment of wages is due to be lifted on 23 December and Lithuania striker Arturas Rimkevicius is one new recruit in the pipeline.

Admitting several players could leave in January to be replaced by cheaper options, McGlynn said: "The football club will still need to satisfy the SPL for that transfer embargo to be lifted. We might have to lose some players and it may be we have to bring in players at a lower wage to compensate for that.

"If he (Rimkevicius) was going to be part of our plans, if he was training

with us, he would get his fitness up and be ready to go if everything was to work out. There's a wee bit of work to get done first of all with the transfer embargo."

Ryan Stevenson scored Hearts' opener from the penalty spot, before his replacement Callum Paterson netted the second for a welcome victory after a three-match winless run.

"I thought we merited a good 2-0 victory, a good response to last week's derby defeat," added McGlynn.

"We defended all the set-pieces very, very well, stayed solid. Barring the Celtic game when we lost four goals, our defensive record's fairly good and barring a wee bit of bad luck for us last week we would've had another clean-sheet."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
