Connor Wickham: On-loan Sheffield Wednesday striker scored twice against Leicest

The 20-year-old, currently enjoying a second temporary stay in South Yorkshire following a spell last season, has scored four goals in his last five games after notching a double in Tuesday's impressive win over league leaders Leicester.

Wickham is set to head back to the Stadium of Light in January, but Gray, who is in temporary charge following Dave Jones' departure, hopes a deal can be struck to extend the youngster's stay.

"We were grateful that Sunderland allowed him to come back and he's a man now," he said. "He was a boy last season, but he's fitter, stronger and hungry for goals.

"He's not our player so we are always running the risk of him being called back by Sunderland, he has got a few goals in the last few games.

"He's benefitted from having a good pre-season, he is looking strong and Sheffield Wednesday are benefitting from that.

"He's our player on loan, at this moment in time it's just fingers crossed we can do something in January, let's hope they don't look at the scoresheet."

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.
