David Goodwillie: Wants starting spot

David Goodwillie: Wants starting spot

The on-loan Blackburn marksman came off the bench during the second half of Saturday's clash with Nottingham Forest to make his second appearance for the Tangerines, and he is keen to impress interim player-manager Barry Ferguson in training as he pushes for his first start.

He told the club's official website: "It felt great to get a wee run out. I've been eager to get on and Fergie (Barry Ferguson) knows that, so I'm glad he got me on when he did.

"I feel as sharp and as fit as I've ever been, but it's up to the manager, I just have to wait for my chance and bide my time. He sees training and he picks his team from there, so hopefully he will see me training hard and will put me in."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
