Joe Ralls: Building a partnership alongside Tom Lawrence

In recent weeks the Cardiff loanee has lined up alongside Duane Holmes (19), Tom Lawrence (20), John Lundstram (20) and Joe Edwards (24) and he admits the youngsters' energy levels have helped them put in some lively displays.

"I'm starting to feel like an old head now and I'm only 20," he joked.

"We have a young midfield but there are some old heads at the back we can speak to and its working well.

"Our game is about energy, pressing, winning the ball and keeping the pressure high and as young players we are trying to do that."

The newest recruit to that midfield is Manchester United loanee Lawrence who was rewarded for his recent form by Wales boss Chris Coleman who put the Wrexham-born youngster on the stand-by list for next week's friendly with Iceland.

And Ralls has enjoyed playing alongside Lawrence since his arrival at Huish Park.

"He's very positive and has a really good go, he can only be a positive for us," he said. "Tom has created a lot of good chances and we hope he can continue that and create a few goals."

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!
