Joining Blues skipper Caldwell and Cherries hitman Pitman were Accrington player/coach James Beattie and also defender Guy Branston, who was speaking shortly after signing for Bristol Rovers on loan.

Regulars Dean Windass and Neil Mellor were in the studio and gave their views in a debate on the value of the loan window, with both ex-pros telling us of their experiences of temporary moves and how they benefit both young and old players.

The takeover at Leeds United was also on the agenda, with the boys agreeing Neil Warnock will be loving the opportunity to spend some money.

Meanwhile, Caldwell explains what it's like to be playing at a club that's being sold, while Pitman tells why he made the move back to Dean Court from Bristol City and pays tribute to boss Eddie Howe.

Beattie speaks about his move into coaching at the Crown Ground and his aspirations for the rest of this season with Stanley, before testing his knowledge in the Quickfire Quiz.

The Football League Hour returns next Thursday from 7pm on Sky Sports News Radio.

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.

One Point And One Conclusion For United

P

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.

Warnock sacked by Palace

W

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.
