Julian Speroni: Confident of beating Watford on Friday night

The fifth-placed Eagles make the short trip to Hertfordshire just one place and one point behind their hosts in the npower Championship table, with both sides knowing victory will take them into the automatic promotion places for a day or so at least.

The Hornets are in a rich vein of form, winning four of their last five league matches, while Palace's 2-1 victory over Charlton last Saturday was their first success in four attempts.

But goalkeeper Speroni is confident Palace can hold their own at Vicarage Road.

"They (Watford) are a very strong team, as are all the teams in this division to be fair," he said.

"But we're going to be play our game and we're going to try to win. They are on a good run at the moment but there's no reason why we can't match them. We're looking forward to it."

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!
