The Sheffield Wednesday midfielder, who joined Tranmere in the summer, admits he is relishing the prospect of playing against Sheffield United for the first time.

He told the club's official website: "When I joined Tranmere the United game was the first fixture I looked for, to see when it was. I've always had December 15 in my head and I'm really looking forward to it.

"It would be nice for me if we could get a win with my Wednesday connections.

"I expect to get some stick from the United fans but hopefully that will make me play better."

Palmer added: "I've not played against Sheffield United for Wednesday, I've only made the bench.

"It would be nice to get my first Tranmere goal against them. Hopefully it's written in the stars. If not, I will take a win or a good result."

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!
