It's that time of the season again where Merlin invades our frontpage :-) No, not the beardy weirdy one, our mate over at Vital Chelsea. With thanks! 1) What are you expecting from the season? A top four finish at least, we need Champions League football (even more so after crashing out in the group stages this season) to sustain our ambitions. A trophy would be nice but after miserable failures in the Community Shield (on your patch) and in the European Super Cup and the FIFA Club World Cup, we`re fast running out of viable options.

Bolton boss Dougie Freedman has said Bolton will gladly look at an extended deal on Stephen Warnock's loan, if the player wants it. There's been a fair bit of speculation about our out of favour left back today, with some outlet's claiming a deal had been done that would kick in on January 1st, others saying there was still a dispute (but there had been movement) on the percentage of the wage we wanted Bolton to pay, but now we have something official from Bolton's Website. Freedman said of the player: Warnock's Future In Stephen's Hands

Not sure Paul Lambert really needed to answer the question to be fair, but with the London press and internet gossip sites stirring like they normally do, fans will probably be pleased with his answer. See: Benteke Going Nowhere
