Neil Warnock: Hailed matchwinner Luciano Becchio

Lukas Jutkiewicz's deflected strike gave Boro the lead after half an hour, but the Argentinian replied with goals in the 45th and 73rd minute to secure the points for the hosts at Elland Road.

Becchio now has seven in seven league and cup games, but Warnock insists he needs a new recruit to take some of the goalscoring burden off the striker's shoulders.

"Luciano's first goal was unbelievable," said Warnock. "It was not even a half chance but a top-quality finish.

"It was the first time he had ever been on the winning side in a five-a-side game in training on Friday. He looked so lively that I said 'is there any chance you'll be like that tomorrow' - and he was!

"I still feel we need another striker because Luciano can't play week in, week out, with so many games coming up and we need someone in case he gets injured. That has to be my priority.

"It was a super day for our new owners at the end of a really positive week. I have to be delighted, especially coming from behind to beat a very good side.

"We put our bodies on the line near the end and there were a lot of tired legs out there."

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.
