Dave Jones: Dull day at Hillsborough, but three points satisfies Owls boss

Second-half goals from Ross Barkley and Miguel Llera saw the Owls secure their second successive win and moved them out of the Championship relegation zone.

"I thought it was a hard-fought victory. I don't think we played as well as we have been but sometimes you've got to grind out results," Jones said.

"I thought the first half was a bit slow and no tempo to it from either side. I don't know whether Darren's side had tried to force that upon us but we fell into a very low-tempo game and there wasn't much happening.

"The day was dull, everything about it was dull and well done to the crowd because second-half they got us going a little bit because it was just such a low-tempo game.

"There was not a great deal happening but sometimes you get those games and you've got to make sure you come out on top and that's what we did second half.

"We've probably played far better than that and come away with nothing so that's how it goes sometimes. I was glad they put the lights on, it was just such a dull day.

"Everybody was getting into that 'let's all go home' sort of mode."

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.
