Stuart McCall: Happy with another clean sheet

Stuart McCall: Happy with another clean sheet

John Sutton's first-half goal earned Motherwell their first home win of the season and derail Partick's unbeaten start to the campaign.

McCall said: "I was delighted with the win especially the first half as we stopped them playing. We knew a second goal would kill them off and their 'keeper has had a couple of terrific saves.

"However when you don't get a second the game is still there to be won and give credit to Thistle who made a right good go of it in the final 20 minutes.

"They put us under some pressure and gave us a few scares but overall Lee Hollis has had very few saves to make and we could have finished it off, especially the chance that fell to Keith Lasley who should have scored from eight yards.

"But it was another clean sheet for us and the two wins, of 1-0, out of four games and if that is the way it has to be then fine."

Thistle put on a spirited second-half showing, but boss Alan Archibald said: "It is not nice to taste defeat for the first time and it is a sore one to take but we didn't turn up in the first half.

"Although we were better in the second, 'Well had a game plan and pressed us in the first half.

"We played the game at our tempo in the second and attacked their goal and probably did enough for a point but we might have been picked off for a second."

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.
