John McGlynn: Not naming names

John McGlynn: Not naming names

All three of the visitors' goals came for set-pieces as a defence missing the injured Marius Zaliukas and the departed Ryan McGowan struggled to cope with dead-ball deliveries.

McGlynn, whose side are seven points off the top six, said: "The goals we lost were criminal defending. It was three set-pieces.

"That's where you miss guys like Zaliukas, who would have defended these set-pieces. You can't keep replacing guys like him and McGowan, who would have been big players at these situations.

"Was it a lack of concentration? It might come down to that. We had a man-to-man marking situation and there is a man nominated to mark the lad who scores the goals.

"It's quite simple. You pick up your man, you go with him and you attack the ball. But that's not what happened. It was run-of-the-mill, very simple stuff."

McGlynn declined to name names, saying: "I'm not going to hang anyone out to dry. We're in a situation where we need to stick together."

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.
