Stuart McCall: Motherwell manager content with a point from 0-0 draw at Aberdeen

Well failed to follow up last weekend's 2-1 win at Hearts but remain second in the SPL table and have all but sealed a place in the top six.

McCall said: "I thought the first half was a really poor game. There wasn't much goalmouth incident until Darren Randolph's really good save just before half time.

"We don't get many clean sheets so we're delighted with that one today. We've taken four points from two tough away games, which we're pleased with."

McCall felt his side could have had a late penalty when substitute Zaine Francis-Angol went down under the challenge of Joe Shaughnessy.

He added: "On another day we might have had a penalty kick, but it would have been rough justice on Aberdeen if we had got it and scored it. The most we deserved today was a point.

"Shaughnessy tried to get a foot on the ball and I don't think he got a touch, but he brought our player down.

"It was a gritty performance. We didn't really enjoy the game, but we enjoyed the point. We're more than pleased with the point because Aberdeen came on strong in the second half.

"The point almost cements us in the top six which was the main aim at the start of the season."

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.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
