Trying to decide who I think is going to start the season in goal for us.
I reckon Gerken, with Bialkowski getting his chance later into the season. Similar to Berra who started last season on the bench and worked his way in after some poor performances from the starting XI.
McCarthy has spoken so highly of Gerken over the past year and he hasn't let us down. I think he's got to start with him.
Good to see a couple of matches already booked on Sky - question to any other fans in the US... Do they show Championship games on tv over here? I know that NBC have all the Prem games, what's the deal with Championship?
This league is so close when it comes to squad talent and ability, everyone can beat everyone. Brighton will be just as annoyed about dropping points against Blackpool, there may only be a couple of matches left but there are still plenty of twists to come.
It was in our hands today but that's what The Championship is like, it changes so often. How many weekends have we all had to read the moaners go on about how our season is over, but the fact of the matter is that we're still fighting. I don't buy that we have a team who 'choked' or 'don't want it enough', they seem like the most committed bunch of players we've had for ten years, it's just that they're so evenly matched with almost all the other squads out there.
I can see us giving it a good go at Burnley next weekend, they will definitely be celebrating this week, look at how Leicester imploded v Brighton the week after their promotion was confirmed It really could all come down to a home tie v Sheff Wed with nothing to play for.
The league predictor is hard at the best of time but this close to the end of the season it's impossible!
It's a testament to MM & TC that not only can they find great players out of contract or released, but they also know a bargain when they see one, even if it's not immediately apparent.
With the record of clubs he's had as well as his scoring ratio I certainly didn't expect him to become an integral part of our team like he has, and the way he's been moulded into a supplier / frightener of defenders more than an old fashioned striker is brilliant work from the coaching staff. He could've been doing all this for Wolves if they'd given him a chance.
It's great to see a real success story like this playing out, similar to Kuqi I suppose, and I'd love to see him grace the turf of Wembley for us - he certainly deserves it.
I think we'll be able to get his loan extended for the rest of the season.
We obviously want to but the question was always whether Man Utd saw him as a squad player for the second half of the season. I think his panicked moments in front of goal are what's really holding him back - he should probably be on five goals this season and would then have started to come to Moyes' attention but until he starts converting chances, he's all ours!
