Jamie Mackie: Warning for his QPR team-mates

Mark Hughes' side extended their winless run at the start of the campaign to 10 matches after Reading held them to a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road on Sunday.

That leaves the Londoners five points from safety in the relegation zone and with games against Stoke, Southampton, Sunderland, Aston Villa and Wigan coming up in the next month, Mackie knows now is the time to put some points on the board.

"Obviously this club is thinking big but first and foremost we're in a scrap and everyone needs to realise that," he said.

"We need to roll our sleeves up and really scrap to get ourselves out of it rather than have visions of playing a lot higher.

"Of course we don't want to be in a scrap. We need to try to win games now so come the Christmas period we're in a position where we can try to kick on.

"We beat top sides at home last season, deservedly, we played very well at times, but it's not a given that we can do that again.

"It's an opportunity now to get points on the board and we need to learn very quickly and make sure we do that because before you know it we'll be playing top sides again."

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...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

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.

Wenger hails important win

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.
