The Hornets flew out to Spain on Monday having struggled to train at their London Colney base due to the cold snap which has swept through Britain for the past week.

And they capped off their stay on the continent with a 3-0 friendly victory over Shanghai East Asia, with Troy Deeney, Jonathan Hogg and Geoffrey Mujangi Bia on the scoresheet.

Speaking ahead of their return to Hertfordshire on Thursday, Zola told the club's official website: "Training has been going very well.

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.
