David Flitcroft: Vowed to pick his players up

David Flitcroft: Vowed to pick his players up

The visitors were the dominant side for much of the first hour of a dour south Yorkshire relegation scrap, but they paid the price for failing to convert their chances.

Gary Madine and Reda Johnson gave the Owls a two-goal cushion, and an added-time strike from Jacob Mellis was little more than a consolation.

"We have got to be constructive, the two goals were disappointing, they came when we had momentum," he said. "When you have a foothold you have to make sure you lock that down.

"The second goal has really disappointed me, we had to be brave. At 2-0, the momentum is with Sheffield Wednesday and I didn't want it to turn into a rout. To come here and leave with a 2-1 is the only positive we'll take.

"I have picked these players up before. They are eight more games to look forward to.

"The pressure on us is to stay in the league, but the pressure is on other teams to get out of it and they are just panicking and we have to take advantage.

"The players are hurting but when we leave here, we leave proud and in a positive state of mind."

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.

Wenger hails important win

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.
