Jonathan Woodgate: Big games ahead

The Teessiders head for their big date at Liberty Stadium on Wednesday evening with the former England international having returned from a four-match absence with a calf problem in Saturday's 3-2 victory at Peterborough.

However, with Wolves heading for the Riverside Stadium in the Championship at the weekend, Mowbray is having to consider how best to use the resources at his disposal.

He told the club's official website: "It's hard because Woody doesn't do anything, then trains for a few days and has to come back and play to the level we know he can.

"He makes blocks and interceptions and does things the untrained eye might not see.

"I will have to make a big call for the Capital One Cup tie at Swansea on Wednesday because Wolves is a massive game for us."

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!
