Martin Allen: Wants players to relish lofty heights

The Gills are currently two points clear of second-placed Port Vale with 18 games of the season to go, and Allen has told his players to relish it as things can change very quickly.

He told the club's official website: "We have all seen how quickly it can change.

"We have seen it year in, year out. Manchester United last year blew an eight-point gap at the top of the Premier League with world class players and probably the most successful manager in World Football.

"Two points isn't much really for us, there are 18 games to go so by my calculations 16 wins should win the league which would be fantastic for the club."

He added: "We've got to keep enjoying it, even when it doesn't go great we need to support each other and look after each other because there will be ups and downs between now and the end of the season, we know that."

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.
