Alan Pardew: Satisfied with goalless draw in Moscow

Alan Pardew: Satisfied with goalless draw in Moscow

Hatem Ben Arfa wasted a superb chance to grab a priceless away goal in a dour first-leg tie at a freezing Luzhniki Stadium, but Pardew was delighted to keep a clean sheet.

On next week's return clash at St James' Park, Pardew said: "I wouldn't say we are favourites because they have got good counter-attacking abilities in the team, but it's going to be a very different game at St James' Park.

"But we really need to set it up on Sunday against Stoke. Sunday is something we need to put right.

"If we can get a win there, then I think the mood in our stadium is going to be something that's going to be very difficult for Anzhi to cope with.

"We didn't really have to fight the crowd today, and that probably helped us to settle. We got what we deserved tonight. We came and gave a really disciplined display.

"Rob Elliot had to make two good saves and really and truly, if someone had said that to me before the game I would have taken that. That's a really good display in the conditions and environment we were in."

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...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

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.
