The Edinburgh club grabbed a goal through the head of John Sutton, but could not find an equaliser as Motherwell won 2-1.

However, Locke is already turning his thoughts to St Johnstone on Tuesday.

Locke said: "I think we can be pretty positive about the second half.

"I've told the players we can't do that for 45 minutes, we need to do it for 90, especially with the run we're going through.

"Certainly, the second half was more like the Hearts team we need to see at Tynecastle.

"We had stressed how important it was to come out of the traps and, if you do get off to a good start, the fans get right behind you.

"I was really disappointed at going two down so early. The great thing from my point of view is that it would have been easy for the players to put their head down and not react, but they reacted in the right manner.

"If we play for 90 minutes like we did in the second half here, hopefully we can turn the corner."

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.
