Fighting Talk From Martin O'Neill

Fighting Talk From Martin O'Neill

Martin O'Neill is in fighting mode as he has promised Aston Villa 'can cause an upset' in Wednesday's Carling Cup clash against Chelsea.

O'Neill added: 'It's a tough one. Chelsea have a squad to match any competition. They will not take it lightly. It is a tall order, but we are capable and we will be backed by 6,000 supporters and that's fantastic. I would give us a chance because of the fact that we played very well down there a couple of weeks ago.'

Villa are being backed by a faithful of 6000 with 90 buses leaving Villa in convoy! Coach Travel Info - Click Here

We need to take a big leaf out of Spurs book and get the ball out wide. Chelsea's strength is through the middle so if we can get the ball to Barry and Gabby as much as possible we could cause them problems.

Good to read and hear Martin's comments. Think positive its the only way. Lets give them a game. We're more than capable of getting a win down there, and with 6,000 in attendance, lets play our part in making sure that in years to come we'll all look back on the tie, and proudly claim, 'I was there that night'.

Even "In the Event" of a loss, it seems MON takes the possitives out of every match. After the Liverpool game he learnt more about the team than he did during the unbeaten period. C'Mon Villa turn them over.....

We are more than capable of getting a win down there !!! Like f**k we are. Not that that means we won't win, its football, anything can happen, but being capable, not yet a while
