Abdulai Bell-Baggie's first career league goal gave Rovers a 29th-minute lead over Notts County at Prenton Park on Tuesday night, but back came the visitors and Neal Bishop headed in Alan Judge's free-kick to deny Tranmere all three points.

"It was a stupid free-kick to concede for their goal," said Moore. "We said about not giving away set-plays because that is what their strengths are.

"We fought and scrapped. They are a good side, there's no doubt about that.

"The two wingers are lively, but they don't really like defending do they? And that's really where we didn't really keep the ball on the counter-attack.

"For the goal we've got, we've kept the ball, played a great pass and Abs has gone in and scored. We just needed to push on from there. I just thought we got a little bit nervous and anxious.

"And then we got a little bit of luck, which we haven't had recently, where the lad has hit a post and we could have been looking at a defeat."

o be fair, one of the reasons its so difficult for certain clubs to get close to Real Madrid or Barcelona is once they have a player who is good enough to compete against the likes of Real Madrid or Barcelona, they f*ck off, usually to either Real Madrid or Barcelona.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.
