Stewart Murdoch: Agreed a two-year contract

Murdoch, 23, has opted to join the Cod Army over other interested clubs and will complete the move, penning a two-year deal, when his contract at Falkirk expires at the end of June.

He made 40 appearances last season and scored six goals as the Bairns finished third in the Scottish First Division.

Fleetwood manager Graham Alexander said: "Stewart comes down from Falkirk and he's a lad we've been alerted to.

"We kept an eye on him, watched him a few times and spoke to many people up in Scotland and the responses were positive. I went to watch him myself towards the end of the season and everything I saw was great to see.

"I think he is a fantastic addition and it's a great opportunity for him to come to England.

"He can get up and down the pitch like a good old modern midfielder. We've seen the power he has and the way he can pass a ball. He ticks all the boxes.

"When I've spoken to him, you can see how dedicated he is to his job. He wants to do well because he is really ambitious and I think that's what he saw in us. He identified the journey the club want to go on and I think he really wants to be a part of it."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. 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.
