David Flitcroft: Barnsley manager keen to extend FA Cup run

The Tykes secured a place in the fifth round with a 1-0 victory at Hull thanks to a 70th minute goal from Chris Dagnall.

Flitcroft, who has presided over three wins in five games since taking over as boss, said: "It's a great feeling to win in the FA Cup, and we have that feel-good factor and momentum.

"Our form is down to a group that wants to be part of something special. In spite of where we are in the league, we have an opportunity to put things right.

"I love the FA Cup and everything about it. It's a special competition.

"Some of the players in the dressing room have great FA Cup memories, and the fans will go back down the M62 with their own memories. I want to go as far as we can in the FA Cup as I'm a massive believer in it.

"We were really poor in the first half. Hull dominated and deserved to go in at the break two or three goals up.

"But I said to the players at half time that in the second half, when we do get a good spell, we need to score.

"Out of possession we were very good. We were resilient and determined. In possession we were not very good and there was a lack of quality, and we do need to improve."

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.
