Steve Clarke: Hailed his side's performance

Having not emerged victorious from a clash with United at Old Trafford since 1978, many thought David Moyes' men would continue where they left off against Liverpool, and stroll to victory in the Premier League clash on Saturday afternoon.

However, Clarke's impressive Baggies had other ideas, and the West Brom boss hopes his players get the plaudits they deserve.

"I said before the game we had a good team and we were coming here to be positive," Clarke said.

"I just hope the focus is on how good West Brom were not how poor Manchester United were. We were terrific.

"We didn't come to sit in and defend, we came to win. The reception my players got off the Manchester United fans says it all."

The Baggies' new-look strikeforce caused the Premier League champions trouble all afternoon, a sight which pleased Clarke.

"We knew we had lost some firepower in the summer, and credit to the club for backing me in bringing those players in," he added.

"We have some positive players on the pitch, played to our strengths and it worked."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
