Only two players, Leeds' Ross McCormack and Burnley's Danny Ings, have notched more Sky Bet Championship goals than Vaughan this term, and the Terriers forward would probably top the goal-scoring charts were it not for a recent game suspension.

Nevertheless Freedman, who managed Vaughan for a spell at Crystal Palace, has advised the Wanderers defence on just how to nullify his threat.

"I know him inside out," Freedman told Wanderers Player.

"He's really on top of his game. We've done a lot of work on him, we've watched videos on him and we've made sure the lads understand where his runs are, understand what kind of balls he expects into the box.

"We're not going to be short on preparation, commitment and desire. We just need to make sure we're relaxed enough to play good football. When we do that at the Reebok, we're a game for anyone."

S

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!
