Karl Robinson: Happy to share the spoils

Shrewsbury have been widely tipped to struggle by the bookmakers this season but they created the better chances against the Dons.

And visiting keeper David Martin made a series of fine second-half stops to twice deny John Marsden before somehow blocking a close-range effort from Aaron Wildig.

Robinson said: "We walk away from here with a point, something to build on.

"We kept a clean sheet against a side who had scored 10 goals here in their last three pre-season home games so to keep them down to nothing was a tall order.

"I thought we were the best team first half and we finished better but they had a spell at the start of the second half when they really tested us. Over the course of play, it was 60-40 to us so maybe it was a fair result."

Robinson added: "You get so many unpredictable results the first game of the season and we've got a point."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
