Ian Evatt: Training giving team a boost

Evatt, who celebrated his 31st birthday on Monday, has been critical of former boss Ian Holloway recently claiming that training had become stale.

But Evatt feels the Seasiders have turned a corner under the stewardship of Michael Appleton and can build on Saturday's draw at Bristol City.

"We are doing things we've not done in a long time, especially working on defence. It needed to improve and the new gaffer has brought that in. The lads are responding and really enjoying it," he said.

"The lads are getting fitter and stronger now, and we showed that in how we kept going on Saturday. We are only going to get better and better.

"We needed a bit of discipline and a new direction. We've got that now, and the lads are really enjoying it and responding well - hopefully we'll start getting the results now and moving up the league. That's where we deserve to be."

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.
