Scott Davies: Plotting path forward

Davies returned in goal for the Cod Army on Saturday following a one-match ban but was left dejected after Anthony Stewart bagged an 89th-minute winner for Wycombe.

Town are now winless in four matches and find themselves six points off the play-off pace in ninth position.

"I think we did enough to win the game let alone take a point," said Davies. "If you don't do the ugly side of football right, you get punished, and time and time again we are coming in and saying the same things that we are not picking up men at set-pieces and competing all over the park.

"To be successful you have to do them things right. We all know we have got good players, but without that side of the game we know we are never going to be successful.

"There are some things that need addressing and we will do that in house. You can be the better team football wise, but if you are not out competing your opponent you are going to give them a chance.

"I thought we were the ones that caused our downfall in the end because it was through our lack of competing, doing the basics right and picking up on set pieces that's cost us."

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.
