What the chalkstripes in Kenna HQ speculations department are saying: His befuddled behavior had many wondering if the Cowley boss went for a drink with Bill Cosby before the auction, yet his woozy approach has thrown up some astute signings – 20/1

Season preview in one sentence (on 27 August): Last year’s league runner up and cup winner looks to have auctioned well, with four wing backs, a strong midfield and an in-touch Cech, but despite a strike-force from the region formerly known as the ‘Dark Continent’, the side looks light up top.

Outlook: The £38m swoop for Rooney shows intent, even if the £6.5m deal for SWP and Gervinho looks like what the ingrained Kenna manager may regard as a schoolboy error. Dodgy foreheads aside, the rest of the Rockets starting line up looks like a few points. Cup run?
