Kevin Blackwell: Edging towards Shakers exit

The Shakers have been relegated to League Two and need £1million of investment just to stay alive next season.

Jonson Clarke-Harris volleyed Bury into an early lead and added a second with a stunning 20-yard free-kick. Nicky Ajose then made it 3-0 to the Shakers with a quality finish.

Yeovil woke up after half-time, James Hayter heading home from a corner and Kevin Dawson adding a second in injury time.

Blackwell said: "I don't know what's going on at the moment. If new people come in they might not want me here anyway.

"I am sure of one thing. I will not be hanging around if we're struggling to get wages in and pay the players.

"That's not a way to run a football club and I won't stay if that happens.

"The players haven't got the credit they deserve and, as a manager, I feel myself and the club have let them down.

"The shame about it is I think we could've stayed up. But the way we're run at the moment, it's no wonder why we are where we are.

"It's a missed opportunity because we were good enough to stay up, but we didn't have the players because of the transfer embargo."

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!

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
