Villa - Slip Sliding Away
Martin O'Neill - Slip Sliding Away
Martin O'Neill is a worried man(ager) as he fears a slide admitting with the lack of strength in depth 'a slide we might find difficult to arrest'.
Despite only two losses in 16 games, O'Neill is worried by the amount of draws and told said in an interview with the Guardian:
'Naturally I am very pleased we are in a better position than we could have imagined. The players have been fantastic, have put their heart and soul into the games. Sitting sixth, seventh, eighth, whatever is better than being fourth or fifth from bottom but I just think we are wary. We can get well and truly beaten in a few games and there might be a slide we might find difficult to arrest, so the more points we get now the better for us.'
