Ravel Morrison: Mark Noble impressed with youngster in pre-season

Morrison has been in sparkling form for the Hammers as they build up towards Saturday's Premier League opener against Cardiff at Upton Park.

The 20-year-old netted after just 16 seconds of the 2-1 friendly win over Champions League play-off contenders Pacos de Ferreira on Saturday - his sixth goal of the summer.

Noble has been impressed with his midfield colleague and told the Daily Mail: "He's done brilliantly this pre-season.

"He's not been late, he's turned up to every session, he's trained hard and obviously he's getting the benefits now."

The former England Under-18 international, who has only made one competitive appearance for the Hammers to date, spent the whole of last season on loan at Birmingham in the Championship.

S

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!
