Peter Hartley: Loves the positive press

Peter Hartley: Loves the positive press

The Hartley-Poole double-act helped John Hughes' side secure their first home win since September and was also the club's first back-to-back league victories since September 2011.

"Well, what a weekend that was!" Hartley told his blog on the club's official website.

"It was all fun and games and I had a very eventful few days given the whole Hartley-Poole interest that came our way following the win over Notts County.

"Me and Pooley don't mind that though, it was all good fun and if we get positive press like that then it means we're scoring and we're doing alright so long may that continue.

"It's been quite bizarre some of the interest we got. It was coming in from Ireland, Norway and even as far away as Australia.

"It's crazy how it took off, but it's been good banter and the other lads have given us a bit of stick but also said we should be milking the publicity!

"To be honest, the best thing about it all was being able to enjoy it after such a crucial win."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
