Dunne was appointed as U's boss in September, but a revival in the team's fortunes has ground to a halt after defeats in five of their last six games.

The Essex club have been left to dwell on their 5-1 trouncing at MK Dons for two weeks due to their break from action, but Dunne is confident the team has a bright future.

He told the East Anglian Daily Times: "This is the birth of a philosophy that should be here forever, and how we want the team to play.

"I'm keen that, when the day comes and I move on, the next manager must believe in the same philosophy in the future."

Dunne continued: "I still believe we can move up the table.

"We have picked ourselves up. We need to turn it around in December, though we have some very difficult games coming up."

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.

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!
