Ronnie Moore: Feels they should have scored more

Zoumana Bakayogo's first-half double, along with a goal from Ben Gibson, put Tranmere in control despite Luke Freeman's exquisite free-kick.

Moore believed the win over Stevenage would have been more comfortable for his side if they had taken their chances.

He said: "It should have been seven at half-time with the chances we had and if Mama (Sidibe) scores in the second half it's 4-1 and we would probably go on and win by a lot more goals, but it was pleasing. Overall, I think we were the better side and deserved to win.

"It's not like me but we gave the lads three days off last week and then the snow came and we couldn't train so, in the end, they have probably had about five days off and I thought in the first half we were nice and bright.

"I don't think they could handle the front four in the first half.

"Those four, on their day, are hard to contain and there is no way in this world their back four could cope with them.

"Zoum (Bagayoko) was fantastic and so unlucky not to get a hat-trick with the one early in the second-half which has been kicked off the line but I'm pleased for him, he has got a lot of quality, there is no doubt about that."

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.
