Neal Ardley: More to come from winger

The 23-year-old, plucked from non-league Havant & Waterlooville in the summer, came on at half-time against Burton on Saturday and helped the Dons come from a goal down to win 3-1.

Arthur has yet to start a league match but Ardley plans to "unleash" him when the time is right.

He said: "I am pretty sure that there would have been a few raised eyebrows among our supporters when we signed him.

"He was our first signing of the summer and people may have been wondering where we were going with it as he came from two leagues below.

"But they can see a player with so much potential. I am still looking after him though and developing him. The staff are working hard on him and there will come a time when we decide to unleash him."

Sturridge: We're moving on

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
