Glenn Murray scored a hat-trick, two of them penalties, and also missed another spot-kick as his side struggled to live with their opponents.

"I can't remember a game when a side has conceded three penalties," said McCarthy.

"It was a sobering experience but we knew that one victory (their 1-0 win at Birmingham on Saturday) wouldn't turn the whole season around.

"We didn't come here with only 10 points and suddenly become a really top team. It's been a long five days and I've learned a lot about my team. I know we've got a fair bit of work to do.

"There's other teams around in this league that we will have to beat but Palace were terrific all over the pitch.

"Ollie's (Ian Holloway) inherited a very good side but that doesn't come overnight."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
