Russel Slade: Pleased with his side

Three games and three wins had Slade purring with satisfaction. He said: "That was a superb performance.

"That third game within a weekis always a tough one and I really felt that the first goal was going to be crucial. We managed to get that and that put us on our way really.

"The message I gave to our players was persistence and determination. There are a lot of very talented people around the world, not just in football, that are unsuccessful and the key is to be persistent and determined and committed and that's exactly what we were."

It took Orient 56 minutes to break down a resilient opposition, but once David Mooney had got the breakthrough with a header, the home side dominated.

Irishman Mooney added his second of the game with another header after 63 minutes before talented winger Moses Odubajo added a third in added time. Slade added:

"Mooney always works hard for the team and at the minute, he's in the right spot at the right time and he's playing with a lot of confidence.

"But all the forwards have looked a threat in each of our three games and got themselves going."

Commenting on the third goal, Slade added: "It was a great goal, he nearly scored before that when he hit the woodwork so he really deserved that and it capped off a really strong second-half performance. "We've got a home win, kept a clean sheet and that gives me a buzz."

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.
