Chris Baird: Thrilled with Fulham's start to the season and the performances

The Cottagers led at the Emirates Stadium before drawing 3-3 and find themselves level with the Gunners on 16 points after 11 games of the campaign.

"It could have been the best start ever," said Baird, quoted in the Daily Mirror. "To have 16 points alongside Arsenal is great. We knew we could come here and get a result.

"We are no illusions that we are a good team with great results. To be on 16 points with these is a great start."

He added: "We stuck in there even though we made it hard for ourselves in the second half. We will take 3-3- any day of the week. It was fantastic. At the end of the day, we are happy to get a point, considering the penalty."

That last-minute penalty nearly saw Arsenal claim the points but veteran goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer saved Mikel Arteta's effort and Baird was full of praise for both the Australian and two-goal forward Dimitar Berbatov.

The 30-year-old Northern Ireland international said: "I would love to be able to jump like that when I'm 40 - I am struggling now!

"He looks after himself and it shows from his performances. He has been fantastic for the club and hopefully he can keep this form going. The fans, the players, expected it to be 4-3. It was an unbelievable save from Schwarzy. Credit to him.

"Berba is fantastic. What can you say? Two goals - man of the match. You give it to him and you know he will do something special. He did something special today and it got us a point.

"He is a quiet man. But when it comes to on the pitch he is so clever. He is experienced and really helps us - particularly the younger ones. He is a top-class player."

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.
