Ivorian striker Armand Gnanduillet and Jack Lester finally broke Wimbledon's resistance in the second half to leave the visitors at the bottom of League Two.

"I felt at half time we were an accident waiting to happen," he said. "We made substitutions to get a little bit more of a stranglehold on the game but one of them has cost us the game.

"People are not winning their individual battles, they're two yards off the pace and they're not sticking to the game plan we set out.

"We are in a relegation fight and the fans deserve more than that. There's not enough passion, not enough steel, not enough work rate, all the things we talked about.

"I am not taking anything from this. At the moment I am seething and I am hurting and I hope the players feel the same way."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
