The Iron had led since the 22nd minute through Sam Winnall's goal before Sampson's late header held them to a 1-1 draw which prevented them moving four points clear at the top of the table.

Wilcox saw his side extend their unbeaten run to 27 games but was furious that his team did not hold on for the three points.

He said: "The referee gave six minutes of injury time and I have no idea where he got that from at all.

"There were no major hold ups at all and I'm just in a bit of shock. When they saw the number six go up they had a real lift as you can imagine and the crowd got right behind them as well.

"You have to give Morecambe credit for the way they showed great spirit but as much as I am annoyed about the added time I'm also annoyed that we didn't hang on.

"We have let a lot of late points slip this season and it is a bit embarrassing I have to admit now. We have taken the lead in 29 games this season which is incredible really but it makes it all the more disappointing when you lose the lead so often."

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
