Wayne Burnett: Staying positive

Abu Ogogo handed the Spireites the points and Burnett reflected on a hectic few days in charge since taking over from John Still, who switched to Luton on Monday.

Burnett said: "It's been a big step up for me but it's been great to have been given the opportunity.

"Time will tell how things work out, but I came here five years ago thinking I could potentially end up in this position.

"So far I've seen good signs, despite only picking up the one point from two games.

"I took some good advice from a number of people in the game before I did step in, and I think I am ready to do this now.

"I already knew that no games in our division are easy, but this group of players is capable of so much.

"We'll just keep going and try and win as many games as possible between now and May.

"I'm not one for setting targets, but if we get points on the board then who knows where it may take us."

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.
