Will Haining: Free to find a new club

Budgetary restraints at the Globe Arena forced the Shrimps to part company with Nick Fenton earlier this month and fellow centre-back Haining must leave in similar circumstances.

Saturday's 1-0 win at Southend will stand as the 30-year-old's 133rd and final appearance for Morecambe, who he joined in summer 2009 after being released by St Mirren.

"It's a similar story to Nick Fenton really," Morecambe boss Jim Bentley told his club's official website.

"We wanted to keep Will and he wanted to stay but we could only offer reduced terms and couldn't agree a deal to keep him here at this moment in time.

"It's another disappointment for us as he showed (against Southend) just what a good player he is but we know what we have to work with next season and that has to be the way forward.

"I would like to thank Will for everything he has done for us. He has been a great lad to have around and we wish him well for the future."

Bentley added: "We have said all along there may be some senior players leaving because of the wage structure but that is where we are as a club and we are now ready for the challenge of bringing in new players for next season.

"We are watching a lot of games at the moment and are planning for a busy summer to bring the best players we can to the Globe."

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.
