Former QPR and Crystal Palace boss Holloway this week took over from Steve Lomas, who was sacked on Boxing Day, and met the players for the first time on Tuesday.

Defender Robinson told the club website: "He's full of excitement and enthusiasm, and he spoke really well to us.

"The chairman and the board have done really well to appoint someone of his calibre because he comes with a track record of getting clubs promoted out of this division.

"The manager has always had his teams playing attractive football, and the players are looking forward to the challenge of working on that style of play over the coming weeks and months.

"Our first task is to begin picking up points quickly because we're desperate to move away from that relegation zone.

"The potential in this squad hasn't been realised so far this season, but you can see that the manager is excited about getting the best out of us. He believes there is a lot of quality amongst the players."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
