Steve Bruce: Predicted improvement from Hull against Barnsley

The Tigers were undone by nerves in a below-par display in a goalless home draw with already-relegated Bristol City on Friday, but are four points clear of nearest challengers Watford ahead of this weekend's penultimate game at Barnsley.

"We'll dust ourselves down and get ready for Barnsley now," said Bruce, whose side play promoted Cardiff at the KC Stadium on the final day.

He added on the club's official website: "I think the players will be better for the experience of last Friday because that was the first time I'd sensed any nerves and edginess.

"We've got ourselves into a position where we can go to Barnsley on Saturday and win promotion, and we'll be better than we were on Friday because, for sure, we can't be any worse.

"We're in a wonderful position and it's important that we stay positive.

"We're four points ahead, there's two games left and we need to win one of them.

"Who wouldn't have taken that a month ago let alone at the start of the season?

"We've got to get it in our minds that we have to go to Barnsley and get a result.

"If we can do that then we're promoted. Forget about what Watford do, it's all about us."

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.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
