Turner: Pleased with Gayle contribution

The versatile 20-year-old defender only arrived from West Brom hours before Thursday's deadline but was thrown straight into the mix at Boundary Park after fellow loanee Julian Bennett was struck down with a trapped nerve in his hip.

And, despite the disappointing 1-0 loss at Oldham which plunged Town back into the bottom four, Turner reserved warm words for Gayle following his performance at right-back.

"I think he's a tidy player," Turner said. "He can play anywhere across the back and I think he got forward quite well, second half in particular, and used the ball, particularly playing balls into front men and feeding his wide player, which is expected of him.

"So I think for a young lad to come in and have one day's training, he probably wouldn't have been thrown in at the deep end had Julian been fit, he acquitted himself very well."

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.
