Chris Coleman: Set for more discussions with the FAW in the coming weeks

Talks over the 43-year-old's two-year contract extension have stalled, with the Football Association of Wales putting their offer of a new deal on hold after disappointing defeats to Macedonia and Serbia in September.

Coleman's side won their return fixture with Macedonia last Friday and followed that with a 1-1 draw against Group A winners Belgium on Tuesday evening, but the former Fulham boss was cagey when asked about his future at the weekend, suggesting that what he sees as short-termism from the FAW could see him turn down the chance to remain in charge if it is offered.

Coleman's current deal expires after the international break in November and FAW chief executive Jonathan Ford says talks will resume soon.

"We've got Chris until November and we've entered into discussions," he told Sky Sports News.

"Of course there were some disappointing results but we've had conversations with Chris very recently and he'll want to take stock and evaluate the campaign. We will do exactly the same and we'll come back and have a discussion about how we go forward together.

"He will have his own plans and we will want to have those talks in a timely fashion.

"I think on the whole he has done a very good job and we need to be understanding of the circumstances of how he took over the team. I think he could be the right person to take us forward and hopefully look for qualification to Euro 2016."

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.
