Steve Lomas: We should have won

Dave Mackay fired the Saints in front in the 51st minute only for Liam Craig to snatch an equaliser 20 minutes from time.

Lomas said: "I think we should have won it but it's always the way when you don't get that killer second goal.

"The double disappointment is that we switched off at a relatively standard free-kick and they got a little bit of fortune with a deflection which beat Alan Mannus but I thought we should have put the game to bed a lot earlier.

"We had enough chances to win a couple of games and there was some good defending from Ross County as well.

"But I can't fault the performance and attitude towards the game, we just need to be a little more clinical when we do get chances.

"The performance was good and we went about it the right way. I thought if we got the second we might have scored three or four but if you don't take your chances, it comes back and haunts you."

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.
