Peter Taylor: Ruing costly errors

Bradley Dack came within inches of giving his side the lead in the 15th minute - his finish beat Bartosz Bialkowski but came back off the post.

But just minutes before the break Callum McGregor gave his side the lead, twisting and turning inside the Gills' defence before seeing his shot deflect off skipper Adam Barrett.

Within two minutes of the restart, Gillingham were level - the County defence failed to deal with Charlie Lee's long throw-in and the ball eventually fell to Dack who bundled the ball home.

Gillingham were in control, but completely against the run of play County re-took the lead through McGregor before a wonderful solo goal from Jack Grealish sealed an away day to forget for Taylor.

"I think the performance was okay," he said. "We created enough chances.

"I'm very disappointed with the finishing and very disappointed with the goals conceded, because they were poor goals. The third goal, we made their player look like George Best.

"We created a lot of chances; I felt it was amazing that we were 1-0 down at half-time. It was great that we got one at the start of the second half, but then we had to not give anything away again.

"It wasn't like our performance against Rotherham. We all admitted that our performance against Rotherham wasn't good enough.

"This performance was good enough, but it was individual errors that cost us. There was more about us, so that's an improvement, but we can't afford to give cheap goals away."

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.
