Steve Bruce was relieved after his Hull side edged Millwall 1-0

The Tigers boss was named Championship manager of the month at the start of December but his side had not won since until David Meyler's first-minute effort tamed the Tigers.

"I'm pleased to get January out of the way with the nonsense that goes on - I'm amazed my phone hasn't rang today," said Bruce afterwards.

"Since I got that flaming award we've not won. I said that the time - I think it's about five times that's happened to me now.

"Last time I got it, I got the sack three months later. We're unbeaten in seven away from home now but it is nice to get that first league win of the year.

"You have to show a bit of resilience in this league and we've done that again here.

"David Meyler has been a terrific acquisition for us. He's had a really good start to his career here, particularly when you consider he's had a few knee injuries. I just hope he has a bit of luck now and he can stay fit. If he can, he'll be a big player for us."

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.
