The Cumbrians were a match for Bournemouth for long periods on Saturday before the home side clinched a 3-1 win and with it automatic promotion to the Championship to spark scenes of joy among Cherries fans at Dean Court.

"Everyone wants to be dancing around on the pitch because they've gone up and we have to look at what we've just seen as an incentive for next season," Carlisle midfielder Berrett said after the match.

"We haven't performed anywhere near where we'd hoped to this season so we want to make sure we push on next time."

Greg Abbott's side have not met expectation this season and briefly flirted with relegation after securing only one win in 11 games heading into this month before successive victories helped lift them clear of trouble.

"We played some good stuff (against Bournemouth), but we can't just do it when we haven't got anything to play for," Berrett added.

"Hopefully we can put on a good display in our final home game of the season (against Colchester) to say thank you to the fans for supporting us through what has been a difficult season."

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.

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!
