Dickov: 'Slightly disappointed'

Dickov was upset with referee Richard Clark for the 67th-minute sending off of Wesolowski for a challenge on Damien Mozika.

It came just two minutes after Jose Baxter's penalty had seen the Latics claw themselves level at 2-2 after being 2-0 down.

"I thought we might have gone on and won it until the sending off," said Dickov.

"It was bizarre because the referee was not going to show the red card until after the intervention of the fourth official. I thought the fourth official was only allowed to get involved when asked to by the referee instead of running onto the touchline.

"After losing our previous four games, I suppose I have to be pleased at coming back from 2-0 down to get a point. But I am slightly disappointed we did not get all three.

"I thought the commitment and character and desire of the players was fantastic to get back into the game from 2-0 down. I always thought we could score goals - and we could have gone on and won it."

Scunthorpe took command with goals after 16 minutes and 19 minutes from Niall Canavan and Mark Duffy respectively before former Iron skipper Cliff Byrne and then Baxter netted for the visitors.

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.
