Colin Cooper: Wants to extend duo's loan deals

Defender Burgess, 22, joined Pools at the start of August and Hartlepool-born midfielder Dolan, 20, arrived later the same month.

Both players joined on loan until January and have been regular starters for Cooper's side this season.

"I had a productive discussion with the Middlesbrough chief executive and as a result I'm hopeful that Christian and Matty can stay with us," Cooper told Pools' official website.

"We'll work more on it during the next couple of days and hopefully come up with an agreement because we'd love them both to stay with us for the rest of the season if possible."

Burgess is scheduled to play his last game for the club at Morecambe on Sunday and Dolan is due to return to the Riverside Stadium following the home game against Bury on New Year's Day.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
