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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
