Flynn, who watched Rob Jones and Chris Brown find the net in either half, has only been given a contract until the end of the season.

But he said: "The length of contracts has never concerned me. It's only a piece of paper. I've got big plans for the club - this season and next season.

"The chairman has already said he wants to win the title so no pressure there. But I agree with him.

"We're in a good position, joint top with a game in hand, and I've never liked to settle for second best.

"It was nice to kick-off with a win but I've inherited a good side here. The teamwork is superb, but maybe we can get a bit more from the players individually.

"We became a little bit sloppy in the second half but overall I thought we were convincing the way we went about the job.

"Some of our attacking play was top notch and we could have scored a few more goals.

"We've got a couple of weeks off now and that's good in a way because it gives us more time to work and improve on the training ground."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
