Cooper's side have enjoyed three successive wins on the road, with league victories at Mansfield and Exeter sandwiching success at Sheffield United in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

But Pools have suffered four losses from five league games at Victoria Park this season and the club's manager wants to see his side picking up three points regularly on their own turf - starting against Plymouth this Saturday.

"The 150-odd (travelling fans) are the lucky ones seeing us win like we did at Exeter, now when we get back to the Vic we have to give something to cheer about (for) those 3,500-4,000 who come and watch us," Cooper told the Northern Echo.

"We will be working to try and do that. We have back-to-back home games to come and we are expected to force the game.

"We want to give them all something to smile about and turn around the home form and replicate the away form there."

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!
