Mike Petrasso: Benefiting from regular senior football

The teenage winger linked up with the Latics in November and has made five appearances during a short-term spell in League One.

His initial agreement is due to come to an end after Saturday's clash with Colchester United.

Petrasso is, however, keen to stay on at Boundary Park until the New Year.

The 18-year-old said in The Chronicle: "I'm really enjoying it. I've been getting minutes and the coach wants to play the right way.

"There's a big difference playing in senior football compared to development games, which are more focused on the performance.

"Results are much more important here, and with big crowds screaming at you it's pretty nerve-wracking!

"My loan's up on 22nd December. I would like to stay for another month because I feel I'm getting better with every game."

The Canada U20 international will see his current contract with QPR expire in the summer, but he is determined to show Harry Redknapp that he is deserving of fresh terms.

He added: "This is the last year of my contract, so hopefully I show what I can do and earn an extension to stay at QPR for another couple of years."

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!
