Robins: Extremely delighted

Goals from on-loan strikers David McGoldrick and Callum Ball, an own goal from Jamal Fyfield and left-back Chris Hussey's surging effort saw off York 4-0 at Bootham Crescent as the resurgent Sky Blues extended their unbeaten run to four matches.

"I'm delighted because we played very well," Robins said. "We played better in the second half and moved the ball really well and worked a lot harder. In the end we created four chances and we've taken them all.

"It's all looking good at the moment, we've got a tough game coming up at Swindon on Saturday, but we'll enjoy this win first. It was a tough game because York are a very good side and they have some real pace in the team, which caused us a lot of problems in the first half.

"They were only playing one up front for the majority of the game until they went with two up front towards the end. They changed their shape when we went two up but we've coped with everything really well. I'm absolutely delighted.

"We will now see who we get in the draw, but we do go to win every game. As far as looking beyond the next game, I don't do it."

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.
