Blackwell: Pleased with a point

Shakers skipper Steven Schumacher hooked in a fine half-volley in the 66th minute to cancel out Dean Bowditch's early opener for the Dons and Blackwell believes the only thing that was missing was a bit of luck.

"You ask people to go to the well and give you everything they've got and I thought we were very well organised," he said.

"We came with a game plan - we knew that if we tried to match MK Dons, they're better on the ball than our players.

"So we conceded their half of the pitch, got back into our own half and played it from there and, to be fair, the lads did it very well.

"Since I've been here the players have been brilliant for me. This is a team that shouldn't be where it is, but it is.

"I can't complain about the effort and the commitment from the players - we could have come away with a win.

"We're third from bottom at the moment but if they keep doing that someone up there has got to look down on this set of lads and give them a little bit of luck, that's all they need."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
