Craig Brown: Thought Aberdeen did enough to earn a point

Craig Brown: Thought Aberdeen did enough to earn a point

Goals from substitute Lassad Nouioui and former Dons player Charlie Mulgrew secured the points for Neil Lennon's side but Brown felt his charges were a little unlucky.

"I don't think we did enough to win the game, but maybe to draw," he said.

"Other than the two goals, I don't think Jamie Langfield had a lot to do in terms of making saves or cutting out crosses. I may be a bit optimistic, but it looked like it would finish 0-0.

"It's a measure of champions that they win when they need to, but Celtic have lost to other teams in the SPL and I had hoped that there might be a chance for us to win."

Brown praised the fortitude of 18-year-old winger Ryan Fraser, who was substituted after 64 minutes having taken a few heavy knocks.

"He was winded. He was knocked about a bit," added Brown.

"I spoke to him when he came off and he was feeling a bit of pain, but he's a brave wee guy so hopefully he'll be back for next week.

"We had to replace Gavin Rae, who is very influential for us, at half-time with a hamstring, and we had started without Ryan Jack, Gary Naysmith and Rob Milsom.

"To lose another one at half-time didn't help us. It's not an excuse because we didn't do enough and didn't keep the ball the way we have been doing."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. 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.
