      Favourite stat of the day: Rashford, for the third season running, has fewer goals than Ashley Barnes.

            I think I might have heard something similar, but I'm not sure where and I'm not sure how that's even measured. When Lynch is good he's very good, but when he's bad he's catastrophic, and then there are the occasions when he just goes missing. But I'm sure he'll get a job somewhere, probably at the same level.

              My United supporting flatmate says the Glazers want to keep Martial over the wishes of OGS.

                  So it says in the Mirror. Maybe they've decided Joel Glazer is the man to be technical director?

                    QPR are still cutting salaries and have released:

                    Joel Lynch No great surprise. Generally disliked by supporters (in part because he somehow manages to "get injured" during almost every holiday period, especially Christmas.) His form is also erratic and style of play industrial rather than industrious. Won't be missed.

                    Alex Baptiste Solid journeyman at the tail-end of his career. Spent the second half of the season on loan at Luton, where he made but two appearances. No chance of new contract at our level anymore.

                    Jake Bidwell Bit of a surprise. Not great but he's our only experienced LB, and Warburton knows him well from their time together at Brentford. No idea how much money he's on of course, and that could be the deciding factor.

                    Jordon Cousins He's had hard luck. Injured for a good part of his time with us, and spotty form initially when he did play didn't endear him to fans. He came on strongly at the end of this past season but we've a lot of mid-field options and he's drawn the short straw.

                    Paweł Wszołek Will be a big miss I think. Unorthodox for a winger — runs like a sailor, and hates to cross the ball — but can play anywhere down the right side, never dogs it and manages to come up with important goals often enough to make him a bit of a fan favourite, but we've a lot of up and coming players in his slot and that's the direction the club's headed.

                    And offered a new contract to:

                    Angel Rangel Interesting decision. He's unlikely to be a regular and, to this point, he's the only older player offered a new deal. The thought is he might be seen a player-coach, with managerial potential down the line. He's apparently great in the dressing room and is certainly very articulate.
                    Our decision to let Angel Rangel go looks crazier every day, especially as Potter will be leaving. Rangel comes across well in every aspect and is surely the next Swansea manager. Perhaps spending some time away from the dressing room is best.

                      And so it has come to pass with Charlie signing a 2 year deal yesterday. I'm chuffed to bits with this.

                        Burnley confirm three departures, Stephen Ward, Anders Lindegaard and Jon Walters (the latter announced his retirement a short while back). Crouch is out of contract.

                        Options for an extra year given to Aaron Lennon, Phil Bardsley and Steven Defour. Not complaining at any of those - I dearly wish we could see an injury-free Defour.

                        Dan Agyei and Aidan O'Neill offered new contracts.

                          Scunthorpe release Josh Morris, who unsurprisingly sees his future at a higher level, plus defender Byron Webster who signed short-term in January, and back-up back-up keeper Jon Flatt.

                          Options taken up on Lee Novak, Levi Sutton, "Neymar's body double" Yasin Ben El Mhanni and a couple of other young 'uns.

                          Loanees (George Thomas, Tony McMahon, Tom Pearce, Jak Alnwick and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson) return to parent clubs with a mix of thanks, shrugs and don't let the door hit your arse on the way out.

                            I was surprised to see Flatt sign for Scunny in the summer - he started the 17/18 season on loan for us having played the last 10 games of our promotion season in 15/16 and appeared to have gone backwards instead of progressing. His ineptitude led to us taking a punt on Scott Flinders who has been a revelation.

                              I part typed a response to this but gave up because essentially I want them all to fuck off.

                                Lincoln have announced their retained list. Everyone is under contract except for Matt Gilks (contract offered), Michael O'Conner (offered new deal) and Sam Habergham. I sponsor Habergham along with others, and he's been with us since the Cowleys took charge. Unfortunately the last 2 years he's suffered terribly with injuries and didn't feature at all last season. Think he's another specialist look at him. He's a good player, but who knows whether he's League 1 class - plus Harry Toffolo was an ever present and one of the players of the season, so I think if we do offer Habergham a one year deal he'll be loaned off somewhere to prove his fitness. Meanwhile, we're looking to sponsor someone else.

                                The loanees we had have all gone back to their parent clubs. We had first dibs on signing Mark O'Hara, put on the transfer list by Posh, but as their Chairman likes to point out on twitter, that deadline for us to make a bid is fast running out.

                                    Any word where Wardies going,followed his career with interest and wouldn't want him to sully it back home with Rovers or Cork.

                                        He was largely excellent. Scored our goal of the season against Swindon, but since Danny Rowe came in found his first team place just behind Akinde threatened, and largely was used as a sub. Did score some excellent goals, and very comfortable on the ball, running at defences. It's unlikely that Ipswich will wish to sell Rowe now they're down in League One, so i'd happily have McCartan back next season.

                                          Announced yesterday that O'Conner has signed a one year deal. Possibly still some doubts over his fitness long term, but he is still only 31 and has plenty of experience of League 1.

                                            Will Nahki Wells get a game next season? He looked like someone who never wanted see a football again by the time we'd finished with him.

                                              Doubt it. I think he will join the long list of names that arrived with a fanfare under Dyche and then never set foot on the pitch. Off the top of my head, Tendayi Darikwa, Nathaniel Chalobah, Georges-Kevin N'Koudou, Matej Vydra, Ben Gibson. It's bloody infuriating sometimes.
