Leam Richardson: Sets lofty goals for Spirietes

Richardson, 33, was reunited with his former mentor Paul Cook this week when he left the Spireites' League Two rivals Accrington to make the switch to north east Derbyshire.

Cook himself made the same move in October when he succeeded John Sheridan as Chesterfield boss.

Richardson has been impressed with the Spireites' set-up and believes the club should be playing at a higher level.

"Chesterfield is a fantastic club that should be knocking on the door of the Championship, and hopefully we can go about doing that swiftly," said the former Accrington manager.

"The infrastructure already in place here is impressive and the ambition of the chairman and the chief executive is that they want to be up there.

"I'm young myself and enthusiastic about progressing my own career. I want to be in that same place."

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.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

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!
