John Sheridan: Very pleased with Jason Banton showing

The 21-year-old had only trained once with his team-mates following his loan move from Crystal Palace before being thrown into the starting line-up at Home Park.

Bantom, who was replaced with 12 minutes to go, forced goalkeeper Chris Lewington into a good save and created a fantastic chance for Ronan Murray which was only kept out by the woodwork in what was the first start of his career.

"I thought Jason played really well for his first game," Sheridan told the Plymouth Herald. "He was a bright spark. He took care of the ball and got at them.

"He hasn't played much first team football and got a bit of cramp towards the end but I was very pleased with his debut.

"He's confident and he will excite you. You could see what he was trying to do. He did some really good things.

"I'm really pleased he put in a good performance. It's a shame we just didn't get that win."

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.
