Mark Robins: Delighted with cup success against Bradford

Bradford were beaten finalists in last season's competition but two goals from James Vaughan ensured they would go no further this time round.

"We were brilliant. We grew into the game and the goal came at the right time for us because the crowd was starting to become a little impatient," Robins told Huddersfield's official website.

"We were a little bit sloppy in the final third, we need to be better going forward.

"Adam Clayton had a very good game for us and made us tick throughout, along with one or two others. Everyone put a shift in and tried to pass the ball."

In particular, Robins was keen to praise the clinical finishing of former Everton striker Vaughan.

"He finished his chances very well. His first was a powerful strike and I felt that it settled everyone down," added Robins.

"Considering we only worked on that shape yesterday, the lads worked very well together. It was a fluid formation and we moved the ball very well.

"The big test comes on Saturday (at home to QPR) and we can repeat the performance, I have belief that the players can do.

"We need to carry the belief that we showed into the next game and training sessions that we have.

"They showed tonight that they are very good when they pass and move the ball. They are all capable players."

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.
