Gareth Ainsworth: Concedes Bees defeat

Gareth Ainsworth conceded his Wycombe side did not deserve to be party poopers at Barnet.

The Bees claimed the win thanks to Jake Hyde's strike in their final game at Underhill to move out of the League Two drop zone, but only after Chairboys striker Joel Grant had a stoppage-time penalty saved.

"We didn't deserve to get a draw from the game," said Ainsworth. "That was probably the worst we've played since I've been in charge, I think the occasion got to a few.

"Barnet were hungrier, they wanted it more than us. We had a couple of injuries and it weakened us, there is a lot to work on.

"I'm glad we've done enough to be safe and luckily there wasn't much riding on this for us. There was plenty on it for Barnet and fair play to them. They've done what they had to do.

"We were very poor. I'm gutted for the boys because they tried, it wasn't a lack of effort, we just didn't turn up.

"We had a chance late on to get a point, but missing a penalty in the 92nd minute isn't great at any level. Joel Grant is devastated in there, he's really down but these things happen."

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.
