Jacob Blyth: Back at Sixfields

Blyth played for 80 minutes and scored the winning goal on his return from the thigh injury that cut short his stay at Sixfields as the Foxes Under-21 side beat Blackburn 1-0 on Monday night.

The 21-year-old joined the Cobblers at the start of August on an initial month-long deal which was then extended until November 2.

However, he suffered a thigh injury in training towards the end of September and returned to his parent club to receive treatment.

Having recovered from the problem, Northampton boss Aidy Boothroyd is keen to have Blyth back and it is understood that will happen in time for the FA Cup first-round tie at Bishop's Stortford on Sunday.

Blyth scored three goals in eight appearances for the Sky Bet League Two club prior to his injury.

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!
