Ross Barkley: Catching the eye for Sheffield Wednesday

The 18-year-old, voted Owls fans' player of the month for October, has made a big impact since arriving on loan in mid-September, scoring his fourth goal in 13 appearances in the recent win over Peterborough.

Barkley, who has credited Owls boss Dave Jones and his coaching staff with his progress at Hillsborough, told Wednesday's official website: "I've followed the career of Dave Jones for a long time, from when he was at Cardiff. He's a Scouser from the same area as me so I've always taken an interest in his career.

"I was made up when I found out he was interested in bringing me to Wednesday. I've really enjoyed my time here so far. I feel as if I have made a lot of progress and that's the most important thing.

"The manager and the coaching staff talk to me all the time and that's a great help. I'm playing regular football at a good level in the Championship so I'm really pleased with how things are going.

"I'm taking things one step at a time and we will see what happens from here. I see my future in the long term with Everton, but right now, I'm enjoying my football and the experience I'm getting with Sheffield Wednesday."

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.
