Gareth Ainsworth: Singled out star duo

This, after both netted in the Chairboys' comfortable win over York at Adams Park.

Morgan netted two first-half penalties for Wycombe - the first in the third minute after being fouled by Scott Kerr and the second before the break following Jamal Fyfield's barge on Grant.

Grant got on the scoresheet himself with a fine solo effort on the hour mark with defender Dave Winfield completing the 4-0 victory with a header 10 minutes from time.

Wycombe have now won three straight and are unbeaten in five and boss Ainsworth admitted Morgan and Grant would have been a handful for anyone such was their performance.

"The way York came at us, after getting beaten last week, and seeing us on television on Monday, they tried to get us on the counter," said Ainsworth.

"We pre-empted that and thought it might take a while until we got into the game. We didn't think it would take two minutes but players like Dean and Joel are ideal for these situations.

"They can break on the counter away from home and they can break with pace but when teams want to sit in against us they can make things happen.

"They showed that in abundance. It was a flat game, very flat. The early goal killed it a little bit in a funny way but I told the lads they had to grind it out after Monday [when they beat Gillingham].

"I think a few of them were on half tanks starting the game because we gave it everything and I think that to not be fully recovered and put a performance in like that speaks absolute volumes."

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. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.
