Ricky Ravenhill: Heading to Sixfields

Experienced midfielder Ravenhill, 32, arrives at Sixfields on a one-month deal from Bradford in search of regular first-team football having not started a single league match for the Bantams this campaign.

The former Doncaster and Notts County man has been granted permission to feature in Sunday's FA Cup clash with Bishop's Stortford.

Blyth, meanwhile, rejoins the Cobblers from Championship side Leicester on a loan deal that will keep him at the club until the middle of December.

The 21-year-old striker enjoyed eight appearances for Aidy Boothroyd's struggling side earlier this season, scoring three goals, before seeing his scheduled three-month stay cut short towards the end of September due to injury.

Blyth has also been given the green light for FA Cup action this weekend as Northampton look for a welcome boost having slumped to the foot of the League Two table.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
