Scott Dann: Keen to build on last weekend's win

Dann believes performances have improved during their last two outings and says that has to continue when Sean O'Driscoll's side visit Ewood Park.

Despite being 10 points adrift of the play-off places, the former Birmingham man believes they can still make a late charge up the table.

"Obviously we are disappointed where we are in the league but I think with the new manager coming in it has given us a little bit of a boost," he told the club's official website.

"Against Charlton we never showed what we were capable of and we didn't really play very well but we put that right against Brighton albeit we were a bit unlucky near the end.

"I think against Derby we showed what we are capable of and we need to keep that up and start picking up more points.

"I think we are still 10 points off but you never know in this league, that is what we'll be aiming for from now until the end of the season. In the next couple of games we've got to be picking up maximum points and we'll be doing our upmost to do that."

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.
