Dean Saunders: Pressure is on

Sylvan-Ebanks Blake fired the hosts in front at Molineux, only for Tom Ince to snatch a brace and earn the Seasiders three points.

Saunders, who took over as manager in early January, said: "We have got to get away from the bottom. We have to get a couple of wins.

"It is a difficult job because it is a massive club and no-one expects the club to be where it is.

"Every game we are expected to win and the pressure is on. Our players have to show the mental strength to walk through disappointment.

"There are more downs than ups in football and the top players come back from the downs.

"We were on course for a win after scoring a brilliant goal but we gave them a goal right on half-time.

"It was a catastrophic mistake. Roger has to clear it or Carl has to dive on it and then Ince nips in and scores.

"We had a good patch at the start of the second half. But football is all about fine margins."

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!
