Wilder: Unhappy with length of extra time

United scored in the first minute when John Mullins headed in a corner but Liam Cooper replied in first-half stoppage time before Chris Atkinson won it at the death.

"I don't know how for the life of me he (referee Dean Whitestone) found five minutes of extra time in the first half and there were a couple of penalties for us as well," he said.

"We felt comfortable and it could have gone either way, but we've come away from the game we've had big periods in and finished pointless.

"Yes, we should have defended the first goal better and should have finished the chances off in our dominant first half-hour because it was all us but I do feel the officials have played a big part is us not getting something out of the game.

"I think we've worked extremely hard and at the very least I think a point was deserved."

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

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.
