Sheridan: Blasted team for wasting goals

Sheridan: Blasted team for wasting goals

The Spireites, relegated last season, began life back in the bottom tier with a 1-0 defeat at AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.

Jack Midson's first-half strike proved the difference between the two sides in the end but the visitors certainly had their chances and Dons goalkeeper Seb Brown was named man of the match.

"We should have scored four goals in the opening 15-20 minutes. We played really, really well but we just didn't take our chances," said Sheridan, whose side won the title the last time they were in League Two two seasons ago.

"Then they scored and it gives them something to hold on to and that's what they've done, but I don't think I've seen a game more for the taking. We should have won the game, we should have got the three points but we haven't.

"The goal should never have happened. We've got possession 80 yards from our goal and in five seconds they've scored. Whoever's at fault for the goal has to hold their hands up but I'll do that in the dressing room."

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.
