O'Neill downbeat on loss (AUDIO)

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill, who omitted summer signing Marlon Harewood from the 16, says he's disappointed his side failed to build on victory last time out against Chelsea, as youngster Michael Johnson scores his second goal for the club to send Manchester City to second spot in the table.

I've never thought MON was the man for the job, melski, in all honesty I don't see any improvement on the pitch from o'leary, the 2-0 win over Chelsea was a flattering, thats not saying we didn't deserve something, the result against liverpool was fair, a 93rd minute winner against fulham, another 0-0 with newcastle, and Man city are a poor team, and that makes us just as poor, we were clueless today, reo coker was non-existent, knight was poor, carew was *****e, gabby, well another 'tony daley' you'd want him in the firing squad if you were in front of one! luke moore, offside more than onside!, this is mon 2nd season and I see no improvement, I think we've bought badly, and I see a hard season ahead

its fair to suggest we are still the same old villa, one great result followed up by a clueless defeat. No one stepping up to the mark and driving the team forward. We completely lost it in midfield yesterday, where were the tackles???????????????? also our defence was a mess, I thought Laursen was getting caught out all over the shop!!!!!!!! Why oh why cant we build on good results??? For me, the Chelsea win is a million miles away now and forgotten about. Performances like that will not be tolerated by the fans at home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poor performance, no doubt about it. Manchester City were there for the taking, but we simply weren't up to the task. Three points tossed away.

If we had a bit more craft up front we'd be rocking we played poorly but still looked a tricky team to play against.All the teams in 5th-11th are gonna take points off each other I think were steadily improving still dont panic.

Agreed Pking, good observations. Our lack of a quality finisher could cost us dear come seasons end.
