Sturrock: Delighted with clean sheet

Goals from Ryan Cresswell and Britt Assombalonga secured the Shrimpers a 2-0 win at Roots Hall and the Scot felt his team were worthy winners.

"It was good to get back to winning ways and I thought we deserved the victory too," Sturrock said. "There were many pleasing aspects out there for me and I thought we did well.

"It was nice to get a clean sheet and to also not get any bookings as that could have caused us a few problems. So overall it's been a good night and, although Dagenham had a few chances in the second half, I thought we did too.

"Our goalkeeper made a couple of good saves and that was also really good to see. He's a good keeper and I know he has it in him but it's about the time frame with him because he hasn't played much football and is playing catch up in the games."

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.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
