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."

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
