Gus Poyet: Taking the positives from Arsenal defeat

Gus Poyet: Taking the positives from Arsenal defeat

The Seagulls were drubbed 6-1 at Liverpool in the fifth round last term but gave Arsenal a fright as goals from Ashley Barnes and new signing Leonardo Ulloa cancelled out Olivier Giroud's double.

But Theo Walcott grabbed a late, deflected winner for the Gunners, leaving Poyet wondering just how to deal with the England forward.

"In some parts I am pleased because we competed better than last year at Liverpool. Much better," said Poyet.

"On the other hand we had a great chance to make some news, but it wasn't to be.

"I saw one sprint from Theo Walcott and it was scary. How to stop him? Maybe shoot him?

"You play 70-75 minutes and even with Wayne Bridge, you have to compete with someone sprinting like that in the last 20 minutes, and Jack Wilshere going past people in the middle. But the biggest problem was Giroud.

"Possibly we should have been ahead at half-time but that's football. I knew we would concede one or two, I didn't expect three. We conceded a late deflected goal. It wasn't to be."

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.
