Saunders hopeful of Coppinger

Doncaster boss Dean Saunders hopes James Coppinger will want to stay at Rovers when he returns from his loan spell in January.

Coppinger: Still with Forest

Coppinger: Still with Forest

Coppinger, one of Doncaster's highest earners, was allowed to leave the League One club on the final day of the summer transfer window to be reunited with former Rovers manager Sean O'Driscoll at Nottingham Forest.

However, the 31-year-old midfielder has struggled for opportunities at Forest, starting only one Championship match and making three other substitute appearances.

And Saunders has left the door open for Coppinger to remain at the Keepmoat Stadium when he comes back to Rovers in the new year.

"James understands that they are paying all of his wages and that we had to let him go, but what happens next depends on what Nottingham Forest want to do," Saunders said. "He's only started one game for them in two months. He has been on the bench for most of that time, which is frustrating for him and for us.

"We have just got to wait and see how it develops, that is why I've signed players until January. He has got another year left on his contract here so he is still very much our player and the door is open for him."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
