Green earns Nelsen praise

Ryan Nelsen has praised the way Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Robert Green has responded to the challenge after losing his place to Julio Cesar.

Robert Green: Queens Park Rangers keeper has started the last two Premier League

Robert Green: Queens Park Rangers keeper has started the last two Premier League

Green joined QPR on a free transfer from West Ham United in the summer and was expected to be first choice at Loftus Road this season.

However, QPR subsequently snapped up Julio Cesar and the Brazilian's move from Inter Milan saw Green dropped to the substitutes' bench.

An injury to Cesar at Sunderland last month, though, has handed Green an unexpected chance and the England international has started the last two Premier League games.

The 32-year-old's performances have impressed Nelsen and the defender is hoping the keeper can maintain his form for the division's bottom club.

"Rob has been great for us," said Nelsen. "His confidence would have been down with Julio coming in and taking his spot.

"But you never know when your chance will come. You have to grasp your opportunity like he has done.

"He has been brilliant and was immense at Wigan, and I hope he carries on with that form."

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.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
