Alex Nicholls grabbed a late winner to earn the Cobblers all three points.

"Our performance in the first 35 minutes was as good as any we've produced since I've been here," enthused Boothroyd.

"I thought we were well worth our win. We were fantastic, the work ethic, commitment and our passing was excellent, and we outplayed them in the middle of the park.

"The only thing I was disappointed about was that we didn't score three or four goals because we created some great chances.

"But Rotherham are a very good side and I knew they would come back at us. They were stronger than us for long periods in the second half but if teams want to try and dominate us we've got quick players who can catch them on the break."

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.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

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!
