Fraser Fyvie: Looking for an opportunity to impress in the Premier League

The teenage midfielder joined the Latics from Aberdeen last summer, with Roberto Martinez having shown in the past that he is prepared to give youngsters an opportunity to impress at a Premier League level.

He has been reluctant to ask too much of Fyvie during his debut season in England, with the 19-year-old having been restricted to Capital One Cup duty this term.

Fyvie is, however, of the opinion that he is improving all the time and believes there is much more to come from him as he continues to benefit from the support structure in place at the DW Stadium.

He said in the Daily Record: "I haven't played all season but I'm learning so much that I didn't know before I went to Wigan. I feel I'm ready now to progress to the next level and break into the team.

"Everyone knows the style of football Martinez likes to play, which is probably the way every footballer would want to.

"I'm really enjoying it, I just need a chance in the first team and I'll enjoy it even more.

"Both the James' (McCarthy and McArthur) had to bide their time here. It gets frustrating when you're left out of the squad on a Saturday, but they're great lads and they've told me to be patient. They've said my time will come.

"Every day Roberto passes on advice - it doesn't matter if you're 30 or 19. Most people recognise he's a very good manager. He wants you to do certain things as a footballer and if I can do that I'll get in the team."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
