Parkinson: Hines praise

Parkinson made a double substitute shortly after half-time and the move paid dividends just seven minutes later as former West Ham winger Hines beat three players in a 40-yard run before smartly slotting the ball past goalkeeper Michael Ingham.

Hines was substituted in Bradford's 4-3 defeat at Dagenham last Saturday, and Parkinson said: "Zavon has reacted tremendously well. He has been working with the fitness coach during the week and I am so pleased he got a goal. It will give him a lift.

"Zavon has played in the Premier League and with England's Under-21s, but he has missed his way and I am going to help him to get back on track.

"He is a terrific lad with a big heart and that gives us something to work with. It was a great individual goal he scored. He has got pace and skill, which are big positives."

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...

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.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

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.
