Micky Adams: Vale have achieved nothing yet

An early goal by Lee Hughes and one in each half for winger Ashley Vincent saw off bottom club AFC Wimbledon 3-0 as the table-toppers recorded a sixth win in eight games.

But Adams said: "We've achieved nothing yet. We've got another difficult game at Barnet on Saturday and we will now start to prepare for that.

"We are not cocky and strutting around like peacocks. There is a steely determination and pride about us to do things right and see the job through.

"There is real confidence that we can give anybody a game and it's up to everyone else to try to catch us if they can.

"We've produced another thoroughly professional performance. There were some terrific individuals out there, but the most important aspect is the team and collectively we were very good.

"I was bit surprised that Wimbledon set up with a defensive shape, but we soon got to grips with it and enjoyed a very good night.

"If I was at the bottom of the table I would want to go out and win a game, but what other teams do is, of course, up to them."

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.

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!
