there's an interview on Jakovic on www.rednationonline.ca Seems like good kid with a bright future.

Jakovic played 68 minutes as DC United lost 3-0 to Real Madrid. A slightly more respectable scoreline than the TFC one as all three Real goals weren't scored until mid-way through the 2nd half. Dejan was taken out with the score 2-0, though most of the DC starters were taken off throughout the 2nd half, not just him.

I caught the game on Setanta also. It was nice to see him in the starting 11 to begin the year. I wasn't expecting that. In the lineup graphic on TV, it showed Peters as one of the 2 central attacking mids in 4-1-4-1 formation. After Ipswich went down a goal, it seemed as though Roy Keane switched things up and Peters was moved wide left.

I thought he did really well when he had the ball, but when it isn't at his feet, he doesn't seem to be the smartest player.

Still think Peters is much better on the wing then down the middle.

BBC: Stimson fears Jackson attention

Jackson scored 21 goals for Gillingham last season

Gillingham manager Mark Stimson has admitted he may struggle to keep hold of in-form striker Simeon Jackson.

Jackson, 22, has scored four goals in two games, following up his opening day hat-trick with a goal in their 2-1 Carling Cup win over Plymouth.

"I looked at that list of scouts, there were some big teams here [watching him]," Stimson told BBC Radio Kent.

"No disrespect to the Plymouth players but I think they were only here watching one player."

He added: "I won't be pleased if he gets that much attention and something happens.

"His whole game was spot on, and I'm sure a few of those scouts will be going back with a glowing report.

I'm sure every chairman will tell every player has got a price and we'll have to deal with whatever happens

Mark Stimson

"But hopefully they' be thinking 'maybe not yet, let's have another look at Christmas'."

Tottenham Hotspur's first-team coach Joe Jordan was among those at Priestfield on Tuesday.

And Stimson said: "He's come for a reason hasn't he?

"I don't know what, but he hasn't just driven down to Gillingham to make the numbers up and spend a night out. He's come to watch something.

"But fingers crossed he [Jackson] doesn't leave us because he's a big part of what we want to do.

"I'm sure every chairman will say every player has got a price and we'll have to deal with whatever happens."
