O'Neill & Coppell Reactions

O'Neill & Coppell Reactions

Martin O'Neill said on the official site after the great 3-1 win over Reading this afternoon,

'I am a happy man - really delighted. The team showed great commitment. I thought we were stodgy to begin with, but we broke the deadlock and deserved to win the game. The second goal gave us a wee bit of breathing space and I thought we went on to win well.'

Adding, 'Ashley Young's deliveries were excellent throughout and it is great to have people who can get on the end of his crosses. I was delighted to see Big John score and we have Martin Laursen who shows great heart and desire to get in there and score goals too.'

He also explained that Olof Mellberg was forced to withdraw as he was ill but commended Craig Gardner for standing in.

Meanwhile Reading manager Steve Coppell told Sky Sports,

'They're notorious for the set-pieces when they win the set pieces. They're terrific with them, so difficult to contain. We will obviously question ourselves. We won't moan and complain to the world about it.'

He did also add that Carew's goal looked offside but admitted there was nothing that could be done about that now.

Despite a multitude of bad calls by that git Uriah Rennie, we were better and destined to win no matter the circumstances.

Superb winger in his day, you'd think that Coppell would from time to time look as if he enjoys the game and the job he does. How he motivates his players with his deadpan, uninterested/totally bored style, I'll never know.
