Owain Fon Williams: Offered a new deal

Owain Fon Williams and Jason Mooney have been given the option of extended stays along with highly-rated wideman Zoumana Bakayogo and veterans Ian Goodison and Andy Robinson.

Goalkeepers Adam McGurk, David Amoo, Danny Harrison, Michael Kay and Paul Black will not be retained, with the latter set to turn out in a reserve match for former club Oldham on Monday evening.

Manager Ronnie Moore told his club's official website: "I've had some very difficult decisions to make as the squad has given me everything this season and they are a great bunch of lads.

"But I need to bring some new players in next season and to do that I have to let some leave. I thank all five for their time at the club and wish them the best of luck for the future.

"We have already signed five younger players (Max Power, Cole Stockton, Abdulai Bell-Baggie, Danny Holmes and Jake Kirby) to longer deals and James Wallace, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro, Ash Taylor and Joe Thompson are under contract and hopefully some of those we have offered contracts to will sign in the coming weeks.

"If Ian Goodison signs it will be his 10th season at the club which would be a fantastic achievement. He is a player who has never let me down and his experience is something you cannot buy.

"We have already identified the areas we want to strengthen and have a list of targets. We'll be working hard to bring in the players we need over the summer."

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.
