Luke Murphy: Settling in slowly at Elland Road

Murphy opted for a three-year deal at Elland Road in June after Crewe had accepted reported bids of over £1million from Leeds, Blackburn and Wolves.

But the 24-year-old has failed to hit the same heights that earned him a place in the League One Team of the Year at the end of his final season at Gresty Road.

"It's taking me a bit of time to settle in," said Murphy, who recently apologised for a glaring miss in the West Yorkshire derby defeat at Huddersfield.

"I was at Crewe for 17 years and that's all that I knew - the Crewe way.

"Crewe are a small club with three or four thousand at games. This at Leeds is completely new to me.

"I'm taking it all in and I knew it wouldn't happen for me overnight but I'm getting there now.

"I don't think people have seen the best of me yet and it does take time to show that.

"Score a few more goals, create a few more chances and then I'll be happy."

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.
