Chris Morgan: I can't fault my players

The Blades went into Monday's match with a one-goal advantage from the first leg but lost 2-0 at Huish Park, where Kevin Dawson and Ed Upson scored the all-important goals for Yeovil.

Dawson opened the scoring inside the opening 10 minutes while Upson headed the decisive second on 86.

Jamie Murphy had earlier come close to snatching a goal for the visitors only to rattle the crossbar.

Morgan admitted: "It's a cruel game but football has the knack of kicking you right where it hurts and when you least expect it.

"But I can't criticise the players, they have hearts the size of lions and will learn from this."

And Morgan does not know if he will remain the manager at Bramall Lane, having replaced Danny Wilson who was sacked in early April.

He added: "There are obviously big decisions to be made.

"I feel over the three weeks that I've had the job that I feel we've done well here. But that isn't my decision. They know I want 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.

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!
