The visitors, who had taken a 35th-minute lead through Adomah, were trailing only 2-1 at the time.

Adomah, speaking in the absence of Sean O'Driscoll at the post-match press conference, said: "I scored a goal and won a penalty for the team and if that had gone in the result could have been different and we might have come away with a point.

"We always back Steven to put them away but it just didn't happen for him because the keeper made a great save.

"If we had won then we could have kept up with the teams above us but it is not over yet and we have to stay positive because we still have five games to keep ourselves in this division.

"Everyone is trying to gee each other up and that encouragement is important because when we are down we don't want to be knocked again.

"We can still survive but we have been fighting ever since I came here and I try and do my best whenever I get onto the pitch.

"You can't dwell on things you just have to move on and hopefully we can do that as a team."

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.
