Alex McLeish: Refused to discuss his Forest future

McLeish, as predicted by the Scot himself, received a torrent of abuse from the home fans before kick-off, and it was simply not his day as his transfer-window target Chris Burke scored twice to sink Forest.

A late penalty from Billy Sharp could not prevent another defeat and McLeish has tasted victory just once win in his seven games in charge.

McLeish said: "I am not commenting. I only want to talk about the game. There is no meeting planned with the chairman, Fawaz Al Hasawi. He was at the training ground on Friday. That will remain private.

"There is no problem with communication but I have no wish to make any comment other than about the game.

"We have had a disappointing run but we have had to make changes every week. This is why we wanted to add players during the transfer window, to enable us to go up the table.

"But when you lose goals like we did against Birmingham it is pretty tough to watch.

"There is not a lot I can control about that, as the players have to take real responsibility and make sure they do not concede silly goals as they did against Birmingham.

"It was pretty unprofessional to concede a goal with only 45 seconds to go in the first half."

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.
