Nouha Dicko: Wants to improve

The 20-year-old striker bagged his fourth goal of the season during Saturday's 4-1 win over Peterborough despite making just two starts this term.

The Wigan man was labelled a 'super-sub' by former boss Ian Holloway but now Dicko is striving for a more prominent role at Bloomfield Road.

"It's been a frustrating time for me," he told the Blackpool Gazette. "After my last goal (at Hull in October) I thought the gaffer (Holloway) would have had more confidence in me but it didn't happen.

"I've been desperate to get my chance with the new manager and I hope it's enough to show everyone I can keep improving.

"I'm still young and I have scored some goals, which is good. If the gaffer thinks I have to wait then I'll be patient, but I have to start proving I am good enough to start games...and I'm going to."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
