David Flitcroft: Interest in Brian Howard is on hold

Howard recently approached the club with regards to a possible return following his release from Portsmouth in the middle of last month.

Flitcroft said at the time that he was keen on exploring the possibilities of a deal, but is now in no rush to bring back the club's former skipper.

"I've spoken to his people and at the minute we've cooled off," said Flitcroft. "It's possibly down to the emergence of Kelvin Etuhu and his form and I've got Rory (Delap) now who can come in there.

"So at the minute we're quite comfy in what we're doing. I definitely don't want to unsettle the group, but you're only one injury away from having to find that replacement.

"It's something I could revisit at a different point, but with the FA Cup coming up and everything it won't be in the next 10 days."

Howard, a fans favourite during his three-and-a-half years at Oakwell, joined the club from Swindon in 2005 and scored the 90th-minute winner for Barnsley at Anfield in February 2008 that knocked Liverpool out of the FA Cup.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
