Danny Higginbotham: We are angry at our own display

The Blades' second home league defeat of the season has left them six points adrift of the automatic promotion places behind Brentford and the top two, Tranmere and Doncaster.

Defender Higginbotham, making his home debut after signing recently on loan until the end of the season from Stoke, told the Blades' official website: "It's very frustrating and disappointing, both in terms of the performance and ultimately the result.

"Yeovil deserve some credit, but we are angry at our own display, which led to the defeat.

"We know what we're capable of and I've seen it already. We have the ability to bounce back from this result and I'm sure we will.

"Everyone will take this kind of result to heart, but we'll come back stronger."

Danny Wilson's side, who have taken only one point from their last three league matches, will bid to bounce back on Saturday at Notts County, who have lost their last three home games.

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.
