David Flitcroft: Thanks the club's supporters for their backing

The Reds, chasing victory over Hull next Saturday in a bid to climb out of the bottom three, took over 1,000 fans to Nottingham Forest on Saturday where they secured a crucial point in their fight for survival.

Flitcroft's side are second bottom, but level on points with Wolves and Peterborough, while clubs up to and including 14th-placed Ipswich could still feasibly be relegated with two games remaining.

"The way the fans have supported us has been magnificent," Flitcroft said after Saturday's goalless draw at the City Ground.

"I've said in the press before it's overwhelming at times.

"We're growing as a group and as a football club. The relationship between these players and fans is growing."

Hull will secure automatic promotion with victory at Oakwell with anything less ensuring their race with Watford for a top-two finish will go down to the final day.

Flitcroft added: "If the same fans come in (against Hull) and give us what they've given us - they've been incredible.

"They've become supporters of this group and me, Mick Mellon's and Martin Scott's management style.

"If we can get new supporters in and they can be part of it - brilliant."

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.
