Jim Bentley: Pleased with his side

A goal from substitute Jack Redshaw after 68 minutes proved enough to hand the Shrimps a 2-1 victory over Southend.

Bentley said: "I wanted a response after our 5-0 hammering at Plymouth and I got it.

"We have had a tough week. The lads have been in every day and we have worked them really hard and it paid dividends finally.

"We made things difficult for ourselves once again, though, by conceding an early goal again but after that we rolled up our sleeves and showed great character and determination to get the points.

"We never let our heads drop and I'm so pleased for everyone, the players and the fans because they have been through a tough few weeks but showed great spirit to take three vital points.

"Hopefully now we can build on this and get a few more wins to secure our safety."

his isn't directed at Van Gaal in particular, but, let's be honest, you don't have to be a tactical genius to beat Arsenal at the moment do you? I will say one thing...he put Van Persie on Monreal deliberately? Our Robin hardly had a touch did he? So did that really work? Hmmm....I'd stick to substituting Keepers (yes,yes, it was directed towards him in the end....)

hat a load of Bull***t. DiMaria hardly had a kick and they won because of a dodgy offside and a breakaway goal when Arsenal were chasing. Good luck to them they got their points but to try and claim this as some sort of tactical masterstroke is laughable, It was luck pure and simple.

he singular most disappointing aspect of the current malaise that Liverpool are experiencing is that F365 are not able to use the picture of Rodgers giving his troll smile. Brendan does a helluva good Hard Done By range though, especially in the rain, in fact he looks so forlorn you just want to say to the opposition Stop It, You're Killing Him!

Equating Rodgers To Hodgson. Oh Dear Me.

It's a Mailbox many will have been waiting. Brendan Rodgers gets a little bit of a stick, but there is at least praise for Manchester United,Van Gaal, Palace and Tottenham...

Oh Arsenal. Why Oh Why Oh Effing Why?

We have plenty of fallout from Arsenal's latest display of outrageous incompetence, plus the question of why every team seems to be getting worse. Plus, another Garcia ghost goal...
