Rumour Mill-Houston We Dont Have a Problem, Ade

Ade Akinbiyi has continually been in the news about a potential move away from Turf Moor but what would he think of playing for Houston Dynamo in US Major League Soccer?

The Daily Star report today that Akinbiyi is wanted by Major League Soccer side Houston Dynamo.

Houston Dynamo's home is the 32,000 capacity Robertson Stadium, located on the University of Houston campus in southeast Houston, Texas where they have played since their creation in December 2005.

Ade Akinbiyi will be out of contract in the summer and is widely thought to be playing his last season for the Clarets.

His opportunities have been limited this season, although he will be remembered for scoring that vital equalising goal against Chelsea in the Carling Cup at Stamford Bridge

He has started only one game this season, away to Barnsley in November last year being named on the bench 22 times and coming onto play in 14 of those matches.

In recent times, with Paterson and Thompson vying for the striking roles and young Jay Rodriguez biting at their heals, there has been no opportunity for Akinbiyi to be even named on the bench and he hasn't made the sixteen now since the FA Cup 4th Round Replay against West Brom on February 3rd.

He was linked with numerous loan moves earlier this year including Ipswich, Gillingham and Blackpool but none of them came to fruition.

We shall just have to see if Ade will soon be practising saying Ye Haw wearing a Stetson. You never know it could be a case of Houston, We Have Lift off on the other hand it could be a load of Texan Bullshit!!

Will this really happen? After all this was in the NOTW so has to be taken withy a pinch of salt. With all due respect to Ade there must be plenty of other players who would be ahead of him in the queuue after all he hasn't done much lately and is at the fag end of his career. What would be the attraction for them in this? I would have thought it more likely he would have moved on to the Carolina franchise ratyher than Texas. Perhaps the NOTW misheard and Ade was offered a job working at Texas the DIY store. If it's true however good luck to him.

It does sound a bit odd I agree and I am just taking it with a pinch of salt. If Thompson is still out and Pato can't make Derby, we could well need someone like Ade. Our squad is getting to the bare bones now

Where do they get these stories from? Perhaps Houston are going to pay us £25 million, yeah right. Wasn't Ade definitely going to Dubai, I mean Huddersfield, or was it Barnsley, no I mean Doncaster etc.
