Ronnie Jepson: Calls for patience

Strikes from Ryan Williams and Tony Diagne extended struggling Bury's winless streak to seven games and Jepson admits they are still desperate for reinforcements.

"Week in, week out we're creating chances and we have to stick them in," he said. "Going in at half-time at 0-0, they'll have been really happy because they'd feel they weathered the storm.

"It's been like a revolving door since pre-season with the amount of trialists and signings we've had in. We haven't been able to get certain targets so we've had to go into the loan market.

"That's not always the best way but we just have to try and gel this team together.

"We know what's lacking. We need a proper target man but we must have made 50 phone calls and we're not getting the player we need. It might be that, come January, we have to identify a player and pay for them.

"But we'll get there and these lads are quite honest lads. We just need a leader to grab us by the scruff of the neck and drive us forward."

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.
