Owen Coyle is excited about the prospect of turning the young triumvirate of Nick Powell, James McClean and Callum McManaman into a trio of match-winners for his Wigan side.

Nick Powell: Caught the eye of Owen Coyle

The three players have an average age of under 22 but McClean has already represented the Republic of Ireland at senior level, while Manchester United loanee Powell and McManaman have both caught the eye on the grand stage in Wembley finals over the past two seasons.

Given centre-forwards Grant Holt and Marc-Antoine Fortune have missed Latics' last two encounters through injury, Coyle, himself a former striker, is keen to help his youngsters fulfil their potential in the final third.

"Those are three exciting players but also young players so within that they have scope to improve and get better," said Coyle.

"Having been up there myself I really look forward to the challenge of getting the best out of those exciting players, bringing them on, being pleasing on the eye but also being match-winners at the top of the pitch.

"As a manager I'm a footballer lover and as much as I'd like to see good players - and they're certainly that - they bring with that youth natural enthusiasm.

"When they've got that, and the way they get about the game and the pace they play, that has a natural knock-on effect to everybody else."

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.
