Fenlon happy to end derby run

Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon admitted he was not unduly concerned about the quality of the football after his side beat Edinburgh rivals and cup holders Hearts 1-0 in the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.

David Wotherspoon's deflected effort in the 82nd minute secured victory for Hibs, who had not beaten the Jambos in their previous 12 meetings, including a 5-1 drubbing in the final of last season's competition.

"In cup football you take what's going, we showed great character today," said Fenlon.

"There wasn't loads of football played in the game but I'm delighted for the supporters. They're the people that deserve it today.

"They can go away with their heads held high. They've been down in the doldrums for too long, to be honest, and that was for them."

Despite being delighted with the result, Fenlon did not feel it was a reaction to losing last season's cup final to Hearts.

"I don't think so, that's got nothing to do with it," he added.

"It's about rebuilding this club and getting us back to where we should be."

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.
