The smart money appears to be on Hakim Ziyech.  No I don’t know who he is and if he’s any good either.

Our record with attacking Dutch players in recent time ain't too great.

Sagna has signed for Man City - wages were not disclosed, but it's though that it'll keep him in a shit load of hairbeads.

The figures being tossed about sound mental, 3 years of £140k p/w for a 31 year old right back.

You'll take part in the Vase and Trophy, won't you? Are they regionalised (if that's the word?)? For a team like Torquay, cups like those must be pretty much loss making exercises. I think there's probably a good argument out there for some kind of regionalisation of the lower leagues at some level.

Yes, the regionalisation argument comes up quite a bit. However, when Torquay were last in the conference, although they lost the TV money, their gates went up because they were consistently at the top end of the league, so money-wise they were on an even keel. I'm not for it myself, but I'm sure that some clubs would be for it because of the obvious savings in travel costs.

Fixtures are out now. United start at home to Swansea, then go to Sunderland, then have all three promoted teams in a row. Couple this cushy opening with both Van Gaal and Marouane Fellaini's imperious World Cup form and it's hard to imagine a scenario where we fail to win the title back next season.

I predict Newcastle will be top at the end of October and bottom half by the start of January.

Massimo Cellino's reign of Leeds United has got off to a good start: he's just appointed David Hockaday as the team's new manager. Cellino's mate Benito Carbone will be a 'football consultant'.

They might as well stop picking actual coaches for the job and start appointing random unemployed people off the street, clothe them with sportswear emblazoned with 'Fall Guy Number 1/2/3/etc' and give them a zero-hours contract. Or have a money-spinning competition where the Leeds fan who bids the most gets to be manager for 3 months before inevitably being sacked for wearing purple socks.

Hockaday's previous experience in management is failing to get Forest Green out of the conference despite having a huge budget. Absolutely bizarre appointment.

It's pretty much over for City and Yaya now then. I sympathise with him, but the way it's being dragged through the press is a bit depressing. I wish him well wherever he ends up.

If he buggers off to PSG, then it's hard to see this whole episode as anything other than a money-grabbing move. Losing a brother must be devastating - would City really deny Yaya the chance to spend time with his dying sibling? Maybe. Maybe he's upset about a whole load of things and wasn't thinking straight at the time, and is now using it as a reason to get an even fatter contract.

If he moves to a poorer club than City though...

In other news, it'll be interesting to see how the legion of LFC fans and Suarez-defenders react to his summer-long campaign to leak his unhappiness to the press and undermine everything he and Liverpool have achieved together. If the deal, as reported, is a load of money from Barcelona plus Sanchez then that's a nice bit of business for Liverpool and more than worth the baggage of having a *spit* Uruguayan on their books.

Thing is, I doubt anybody would have objected had he said "So it's been fun and all, but now I want to piss off to PSG for one last massive pay day". It didn't have to be like this.
