Bentley: Rues wasted chances

On-loan Wigan full-back Jordan Mustoe marked his Shrimps debut with the opener but Richard Brodie's second-half spot kick could not stem the tide of four North End goals after the interval.

While pleased with the overall display, Bentley was left to rue his charges' profligacy.

"I will stick my neck out and say we were the better footballing team but lost because we didn't take our chances at one end and gave away goals from set pieces at the other," he said.

"I thought our football overall was fantastic at times and there were loads of positives for us, but we can't keep giving goals away cheaply from set-pieces like we are doing and expect to win games of football.

"I thought it was a really entertaining game and we played a massive part in that and we are bitterly disappointed that we haven't at least taken it to penalties, because we probably deserved that."

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.
