Frank Fielding: Praised by manager Clough

Adam Legzdins has been the number one since Fielding suffered a groin injury during the 2-2 draw at Middlesbrough on October 3.

The 24-year-old is fit again and ready for first-team action after a handful of run outs for the Under-21 side, the latest of which was on Monday afternoon.

But after 13 consecutive starts, Legzdins remains first choice and Fielding is having to sit on the substitutes' bench.

Fielding was number one last season, when he missed only two of Derby's 49 matches, and Clough has been impressed with how he has reacted to the role reversal.

"I thought Frankie was excellent in the victory on Monday," said Clough. "He showed a great attitude. His talking helped the young lads in front of him and he made some very good saves as well.

"Frank is an excellent goalkeeper and we have got two excellent keepers, so he has just got to be patient. Frank has had it where he was number one for 18 months and Adam had to be patient.

"Now Adam has got his chance because of an injury and Frank is the one who has to be patient and support Adam as best he can, and he does 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.
