Graham Kavanagh: Deserves a crack at the job

Graham Kavanagh: Deserves a crack at the job

The Cumbrians made it three wins in a row under Kavanagh as they came from behind to beat struggling Notts County 2-1 at Brunton Park.

Callum McGregor fired the Magpies ahead in the first half only for Matty Robson to equalise with a clever free-kick.

David Amoo's sixth goal of the season settled it after the break leaving County still in search of their first away win

However, in the end the hosts had goalkeeper Mark Gillespie to thank for a series of magnificent saves to deny Chris Kiwomya's team who threw everything at the home defence in the last half an hour.

"I'm hoping they offer me the job," said Kavanagh. "If they want to be reminded of three wins from three I will shout it from the rooftops.

"County were different class and caused us problems but if you play with intelligence, honesty and hard work you get results. We weren't fluent but it was great play by Notts County.

"You earn your luck by hard work and three wins is a fabulous feeling. This is the day I feel most exhausted and I would not like to see the stats of the game.

"They were very good and I'm sure they will turn it round. I told the players they didn't deserve to win, but we will take it anyway."

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.

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!
