Johnson: Impressed with pre-season

This summer is the first pre-season Aidy Boothroyd has had with his squad after taking over from Gary Johnson in November last year, and the right-back Johnson has highlighted the improvement.

The 23-year-old told the Northampton Chronicle and Echo: "I think we're far stronger this year.

"We're fitter, there's a lot more pace in the team and I think, all round, we're definitely stronger this year.

This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
