 We started the season well last week so it's disappointing to get well beaten by a decent Newcastle [United] side. It might have been a bit too much playing a couple of young kids who had done very, very well... maybe I was a bit wrong with my team selection.

 The missed penalty changes things to a certain extent. We started very, very brightly but it was probably the second and third goals which killed us just before half-time. Momentum is a big thing in football. The players felt hard done by at 3-0 but I thought if we got next goal we could get back into the game. But it wasn't to be.

 Stephen Ireland is a very talented player. He is different from James Milner who is a power player. James has the drive to break the game up. He probably doesn't get into the box as much as Stephen Ireland. I think he [Ireland] glides across the pitch. I remember the first time I saw him training with the Republic of Ireland. I just thought I hadn't seen the kid before. He glides past people and rides tackles easily. His awareness of where his team-mates are on the pitch is fantastic and his choice on the weight of pass is one of his real plusses.

 It's been nice so far but I am a reasonably intelligent man that I would know whether to accept or decline the job. I have no problem with the timescale as Mr Lerner will be looking seriously at what he wants to do.
