The Dons were desperately unlucky to crash out 2-1 in the FA Cup second-round grudge match at stadium:mk on Sunday afternoon.

They pulled level through Jack Midson's flying header after Stephen Gleeson had given Milton Keynes the lead, only to be sent spinning out by Jon Otsemebor's deft injury-time flick.

But Ardley can quickly turn his attentions to the league with the Dons, currently one point above the drop zone, travelling to rock-bottom Barnet next weekend.

"I just want to get into training now and focus on what we have ahead," he said.

"I know that Barnet is a big game, but they are all big games now. We know what we have to do.

"They were sorry players in the dressing room afterwards, their heads were down, but that's football and we must use that hurt to strive on and change our performances in the league."

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!

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
