Gary Bowyer: Still in our own hands

Rovers have not won a match since the middle of February, with Jermaine Johnson netting Wednesday's winner 12 minutes from time.

Jordan Rhodes had fired Blackburn ahead from the spot before Johnson levelled matters midway through the first half.

Leroy Lita's penalty sent the Owls in at half-time with a 2-1 advantage while Scott Dann drew Blackburn level.

Bowyer said: "One or two of the decisions haven't gone our way. Ours was a definite penalty but for their penalty their lad goes down like he has been hit by a truck.

"The linesman possibly crumbled under the pressure a bit. These are the things that change games.

"We aren't going to feel sorry for ourselves as it's in our hands still - we have a game in hand.

"Of course it's difficult, it's a difficult situation, but I'm not going to shirk. I'm going to give it my best shot and the players care, they really care.

"Our games are winnable games. We can get 18 more points but our luck has to change."

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.

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

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.
