Gareth Ainsworth: Organisation let us down

The only goal of the game came in the eighth minute when Kyel Reid's free-kick found James Hanson at the far post and he headed the ball down for Garry Thompson to fire home from five yards.

Ainsworth, who came on as a substitute in the second half, said: "We were second best for a lot of the time, but our keeper didn't have to make a save after the first five minutes.

"Set plays are so important in this division. What disappoints me is that we didn't organise properly and let a goal in. The game was won and lost in the first five minutes.

"Physically we were a little bit short short, but it was a very workmanlike performance from Bradford and fair play to Phil Parkinson, he has done well.

"Bradford were a wounded animal after Saturday and I knew Phil Parkinson wouldn't stand for that."

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.
