Andy Reid: Performance drew praise from Sean O'Driscoll

Dexter Blackstock and Billy Sharp were the goal heroes for the hosts but O'Driscoll singled out playmaker Reid for particular credit after his side moved up to ninth place in the Championship.

O'Driscoll said: "Andy has been terrific for us all season and he's obviously had a big part to play in both goals.

"In the position he plays he is difficult to pin down. He doesn't play wide or in central midfield and he makes life difficult for anyone trying to pick him up.

"Defenders don't want to go out and mark him and leave space behind and he's been causing those kind of problems for a long time.

"It was crucial for us to get the first goal because games in the Championship are so tight but we needed that breakthrough after losing our last two games.

"It settled us down, we were able to relax a little bit and never looked in any danger of from then on in.

"I've watched Burnley recently and they are an accomplished side who play with a lot of composure. With Charlie Austin in the side and two good wide men they are always going to pose problems."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). 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.
