Paul Lambert: Full of praise for his forwards

Bent scored his first goal for more than three months to equalise Michael Chopra's opening effort for Ipswich before Andreas Weimann struck the winner for Villa.

And Lambert was delighted with Bent's display as well as N'Zogbia, who impressed in his first start since late September as the second striker.

Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor was also able to make an appearance as a substitute after a thigh problem.

Lambert said: "That was the really pleasing thing, to have the players back from injury.

"That finish is Darren Bent down to a tee. It was top class. But I thought his overall game was very good, his whole work ethic and the way he played.

"I thought his whole general game was very good, considering he only really trained with us yesterday, so it was a big, big effort from him.

"Charles N'Zogbia is certainly a talent, there is no two ways about it. It was a big thing for him to play because he has been out for well over six weeks or so and he only trained yesterday along with Darren and Gabby."

He added: "We left out a few lads to give them a break and I was delighted with everyone that came in, I thought it was a massive effort."

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.
