Stephen Ward: Not thinking about his future yet but enjoying loan spell at Brigh

But he has given no thought to his long-term future yet and fully expects Wolverhampton Wanderers to be back in the Championship next season.

Ward linked up with the Seagulls on a season-long deal in the summer and has performed well enough to earn a recall to the Republic of Ireland squad.

The versatile 28-year-old is open to the idea of signing a permanent contract with Brighton, but feels it is too early yet to consider where might be the place to continue his career.

He will also have to hold talks with parent club Wolves, who are currently top of League One and on course to bounce back to the second tier at the first attempt.

"At the minute I'm not really thinking that far ahead," he said in The Argus. "I'm on loan for the season and no real decisions have to be made for a good couple of months.

"I'm enjoying it there, it's a good club. The stadium is fantastic, we're getting 27,000 or 28,000 every week and they've got a new £30m training ground so it's going in the right direction.

"It's a good club and if something happened, yeah, I'd be more than happy.

"But Wolves look like they're going to get promoted and we'll see.

"We'll sit down and talk to them, see what their plan is, but at the minute it's just about playing and enjoying what I'm doing."

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.

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.
