Hemmings: Growing in confidence

And the winger was delighted to get a good performance under his belt, while getting his first league goal of the season was the icing on the cake.

He told the club's official website: "Scoring gives any player a boost, so it was nice to get a goal. I thought that I may have been offside at first, but the flag stayed down and I saw the keeper coming at me so I just lifted it over him.

"I know that I've had a dip in form, but I am confident I'm coming back strongly and this is hopefully the start of that.

"I thought we deserved to win the game. The lads grafted for the whole 90 minutes and put in a good performance against a team who have started the season well.

"We set a standard earlier in the season and have not played to that in recent weeks, but we went to Crawley with belief in our own ability and came away from the game gutted to have not got all three points.

"There were plenty of positives. We defended well and looked dangerous on the attack. We worked extremely hard and this will need to continue on Tuesday at Tranmere."

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.
