Edgar Davids: Questioning his side's desire

Top scorer Jake Hyde gave the Bees a 21st-minute lead but Argyle hit back to win 2-1 and move off the foot of the League Two table and frustrate Davids.

"It was a very bad result but the team won that wanted it the most," he said. "They didn't play much better than us but they really wanted it more than we did, that's my opinion.

"I think they did stop us playing a little bit. The thing is that some players were not in the right shape today and you saw that when we came out passing, we were immediately dangerous and it also resulted in a goal.

"One of the reasons we didn't do well is because the majority of the players didn't do what they normally do so they have a big problem.

"Maybe they were tired maybe they weren't, I don't know, but what I saw was a team that wanted it more than we did.

"Jake Hyde had to come off at half time because he was injured and so we had to make some changes and we really have a young squad but at the end it still depends on determination.

"We didn't give Plymouth many chances but we didn't play and if you don't win the second balls it's going to be a hard game."

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.
