Ferguson: Peterborough 'well beaten'

The home side led until the 80th minute but were sunk by two goals in three minutes - condemning them to a third straight defeat.

"We were well beaten," Ferguson said. "I'm firmly of the opinion that after 16 matches you deserve to be where you are in the league table.

"We are well aware of the position we are in and know the challenge we have ahead. We need to win 13 of our remaining 30 games to keep ourselves in this league.

"I believe I have a good squad and that we can overcome any blows we've suffered so far, but you better ask the players if they can."

Ferguson also paid tribute to winger Wilfred Zaha who created Palace's winner, adding: "He is the best player in this league and will go to the top.

"He was unplayable at times but we didn't help ourselves by endlessly giving away the ball due to poor passing."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

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.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
