Aidy Boothroyd: Transfer plans on hold

Luke Guttridge, Roy O'Donovan, Ben Tozer, Ben Harding and Nathan Cameron are still to inform Town of their intentions having been offered fresh terms at Sixfields, with captain Kelvin Langmead and fellow defender Lee Collins last month putting pen to paper.

Cobblers chairman David Cardoza expects to hear from the remaining quintet imminently before boss Aidy Boothroyd can then start to action his summer rebuilding plans.

"We're still waiting on the players we've offered contracts to, we'll know within the next 24 hours who's going to accept our offers and who aren't," Cardoza told Cobblers Player on Tuesday.

"I suspect most will, maybe one or two won't, some will be happy with their offers and some won't.

"Once we know what budget we've got after that - obviously there's work going on to get our targets - but then we can actually go and get them and hopefully there'll be some movement in the next few days."

Cardoza added: "Aidy has got a long list (of potential targets). He's very well organised and between his coaching staff they've come up four or five names minimum per position.

"So getting the players is not the worry, it's getting into budget and just making sure we're competitive."

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.
