Yeah I know, I discovered what he really looks like about two weeks ago and created a cut-out to add to the game :P

The reason the recent updates don't have the real picture of him is because I wrote them all two/three weeks ago

Fergie: Not A Bad Start

Reporter: "Ryan, you are now well in to the new season and it has not been an easy won for you and Luton Town! What do you think of the few months gone by?"

Ryan Ferguson: "Well Beth, I think that we have actually done very well so far this season. The Championship is filled with clubs that have amazing finances and it is always extremely difficult for a newly-promoted team to stay in the Championship after promotion. We don't have much money here in the club but we've made the best with what we have and we are currently successful in terms of surviving in this league. Yes, we have suffered some morale-demolishing defeats but overall, we've been quite successful."

Reporter: "You signed Joleon Lescott mid-way through last month, September. Was he a panic buy for you after seeing your side concede so many goals?"

Ryan Ferguson: "Not at all, Beth. Joleon has been a target of ours since his contract at Crystal Palace expired after the end of last season. It was just a case of freeing up some cash to pay his wages which stopped us from signing him before the season. With money slowly coming in each month, we finally got what we needed to bring Lescott to the club. He adds a lot of experience, which will be crucial to us. He has been there and done it all and hopefully he won't be the only new face at the club as we are looking at players of the same calibre of Joleon Lescott."

Reporter: "Free agents Fernando Torres and James Forrest are two players who are currently linked to your club. Are these two players in your transfer plans for the future?"

Ryan Ferguson: "Beth, you know as well as anybody now that I can't discuss these things. Obviously Fernando and James are two fantastic players who would be welcomed with great excitement by any club, but I won't make a comment regarding our transfer targets. All I can say is that we will be signing at least one player next month, but I won't say who."

Ireland: October 2016 International Squad

Ryan Ferguson: "I'm feeling pretty confident about our two upcoming fixtures next week. We started are qualifying campaign greatly with a win and a draw against two very respectable teams and we are looking to build on that. We are making great progress already in the early stages of this campaign and we are set to complete our objectives. We just need to continue on in the same vein as before and earn the results which we desire.

Our first opponents, FYR Macedonia, will be coming to Dublin looking to unsettle us and put us under as much pressure as possible. We won't let them do that, we will look to keep the ball and pick out cracks in their defence. We need to make sure that we are playing like the home team and we will go out there looking to impress the fans who have supported us so dearly in the past. This is our game to win and we want to continue our charge towards World Cup qualification.

Our second fixture is away to Israel, who have the ability to surprise teams. Players like Tomer Hemed and Nir Biton will need to be under lock and key all game in order for us to earn victory. We won't go to Israel playing defensive football, however, as we do want to play to the best of our abilities where ever we travel. If we can stay strong defensively and look deadly in attack, I don't see any reason why we can't win the game.

I've had to make a few changes to the squad, with a couple of injuries to important players for us. Seamus Coleman tore his hamstring playing for Everton and is unlikely to play again until 2017 while Sean Scannell pulled his hamstring. Hopefully their injuries aren't too damaging and they come back stronger than ever. Joe Shaughnessy and Aiden McGeady are their replacements, and Joe will make his debut for Ireland against Macedonia on Friday. I know Joe will perform well under the pressure and I can tell you now that he isn't a bad player at all. Hopefully the lads can pull together and claim two victories in this international break.
