I WENT to Milan with Manchester United this week for the Champions League match at the San Siro but nearly everyone I spoke to had just one thing on their minds.
Whether I was chatting to former United players or even the sales rep from Nike, all they wanted to know was: "Who's this Juan Ugarte and what do you know about him?"
I must admit I was as much in the dark as they were, but it seems every-one's talking about the Wrexham striker after his five-goal haul at Hartlepool last weekend.
And fair enough, too. You've got to be some player to score five goals in a game at any level of football and, thinking back to my playing days, I can't remember even having five shots on target in a game.
I was in the studio on Saturday afternoon listening to the Wrexham reports coming in and it sounded an incredible game.
It was a fantastic result for the Dragons in a game no one had given them a cat in hell's chance of winning and for them to follow that up with Tuesday night's success in the LDV Vans Trophy was absolutely tremendous.
We heard the result in Milan and my immediate thoughts were with manager Denis Smith.
As I said last week nothing is more important than that the club continues to be in business next season - in whatever division - but it's an amazing achievement, given the off-field problems they've had.
Denis must be some manager to keep the players ticking over and focused on doing their jobs. I don't think many people outside the game realise how hard that can be even when things are going well.
I really hope Wrexham go on to beat Southend in Cardiff next month and that the footballing public of Wales get down to the Millennium Stadium to support them.
But any sort of success brings a whole new set of problems and I'm sure Denis will be wondering whether he can keep hold of Ugarte.
Goalscorers like him are not ten-a-penny but, unfortunately, Wrexham don't have the money right now to tie him down to a long contract and I'm sure the lad himself has ambitions to play at a higher level.
Hopefully, though, there's no-one out there who will steal Ugarte away from the Racecourse before the end of the season, because he's played a major part in getting Wrexham to the Millennium Stadium and I'm sure he will want to be involved in the final.
Tuesday's result means at least one Ferguson - Darren - will feature at the Millennium Stadium this season, although his dad will be aiming to make it a double as United continue their defence of the FA Cup at Southampton this weekend.
It's turning into a big game for Fergie and Co after their disappointment in Milan where, in all honesty, the better side won. United had their chances in the first leg at Old Trafford but failed to take them, something you can't afford in such exalted company.
In Milan, Ryan Giggs hit the post when a goal might have changed the course of the game. They could have done with a fully-fit Ruud van Nistelrooy too. The Dutchman had to play, given his scoring record in the Champions League, but as Sir Alex said afterwards, it was a learning experience for too many of his players.
The likes of Wayne Rooney and Ronaldo were a bit out of their depth and will have benefited from the experience, but that's little consolation for United's fans - 9,500 of whom were in Italy.
It's not been a good week for the faithful, following last weekend's 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace, which virtually signalled an end to United's pursuit of Chelsea in the Premiership title race.
That and a Champions League exit is a bitter pill to swallow for supporters who are used to winning trophies, so it's not surprising that the critics are beginning to sharpen their knives. When things start going wrong, people want answers.
That's why United have to deliver the goods on Saturday. Everything at Old Trafford is geared towards lifting silverware and I'm sure that all involved are fully aware that the FA Cup represents their last chance of doing so this season.
