Steve Lomas savours point against Hearts

Suspensions had robbed Lomas of three defenders, and the visitors opened the scoring through John Sutton on 15.

Rowan Vine levelled matters less than 90 seconds later before Andrew Driver restored the Edinburgh side's lead shortly before the break.

However, Steve MacLean equalised on the hour and Lomas singled out praise for David McCracken who returned from injury to provide emergency cover at the heart of the back four.

He said: "I don't normally give individual praise but I thought David was absolutely fantastic.

"To come back four weeks after suffering a triple fracture, which needed plating and screws to put it back together, I give him all the credit in the world.

"I also thought Tom Scobbie played well, playing out of position at centre-half.

"I give the lads credit for fighting back twice and if we'd had that break of the ball at the end then we could have gotten the win.

"I thought we shaded it and had we gone on to win the game no one would have had any complaints."

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.
