Uwe Rosler: Back to the drawing-board

This, after Doncaster snatched a 1-0 win to seal automatic promotion.

Brentford had their chance to seal automatic promotion themselves in the dying seconds after Clayton Donaldson had been bundled over in the box.

But on-loan Fulham striker Marcello Trotta wrestled the ball from first-choice taker Kevin O'Connor and blasted his penalty against the crossbar.

Rovers broke straight away and James Coppinger's injury-time winner settled the promotion shoot-out in a game almost totally dominated by the home side.

Rosler said everyone in the dressing room was "speechless" after Trotta's 95th-minute penalty miss.

"The circumstances in which we lost promotion are very difficult to take, but we will go away and have a few beers and then regroup to plan for Swindon," Rosler said.

But the German could barely conceal his anger after Trotta tussled with skipper O'Connor to take the penalty, which he then missed.

Rosler said: "He was not my first-choice taker, but that is not something I want to go into now. We will deal with it internally and then go again."

He added: "The most important thing now is that we pick ourselves up because we've worked all year to get here and we're not going to give it up.

"We didn't really play the way we can, but we can't feel sorry for ourselves. We just have to go again and learn from this experience."

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...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

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.
