Rotherham substitute Kieran Agard's header 11 minutes from time extended his side's winless run in all competitions to six games on Saturday and left them one place and point off the bottom two.

And even with three games to go until the transfer window opens, Ardley is already thinking about what his team needs to drag themselves clear.

He said: "Safe to say we need to do some work in January. We're working really hard on that, as well as on the training pitch.

"We're not looking at individuals; we're looking for a particular type of player that can give us leadership. I don't want to mention positions but we need pace and leadership.

"We need players who know how to win games, and maybe that little bit of experience. They're not easy to come by.

"When you do, you've got to ask the question, do they want to come down into League Two and join a relegation fight?

"So, as much as we think getting players in might be easy, it's not.

"I can assure you, as soon as I get off that training pitch, my work doesn't stop."

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.
