Greg Abbott: Things are looking up

A 1-1 draw at Colchester ended a run of three consecutive four-goal defeats in League Two that would have seen the Cumbrians glued to the bottom of the table were it not for Coventry's 10-point deduction.

But the under-pressure Abbott believes the performance has handed a timely morale boost to the dressing room.

"The mood at our training session yesterday (Monday) was very upbeat following the performance at Colchester," he told the club's official website.

"The way we played, particularly in the first half, gave everyone a huge lift and it's important that we use that as a stepping stone. It's no good if we allow ourselves to drop off the pace because we need to push on.

"Everyone connected with the club needed that performance and it's just a shame that we didn't come away with all three points.

"However, the positives were there for us all to see and I think there's an added determination in the group to make sure that we get more of the same at Brentford (on Saturday) and from the weeks that follow."

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.

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.
