The 28-year-old former Yeovil, Nottingham Forest and Brighton midfielder, had his contract with Northampton terminated by mutual consent earlier this week.

Davies, whose one Wales cap came in a friendly against Trinidad and Tobago in 2006, told the club's official website: "I'm over the moon it's all sorted and now I'm chomping at the bit to start training on Monday.

"I didn't kick a ball in the second half of last season after the change of manager which was frustrating and as a footballer I'm hungry and my desire is to play football.

"I've kept myself fit and now I'm just buzzing to get on the pitch and play some football. It's about enjoying my football and my main goal is to be playing football with a smile on my face - when I do that I'm a good player."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
