Now that was more like it!
Martin O'Neill said after the 4-0 win that Villa were terrific and at times scintillating and from his comments on the official site, he seems a very relieved and happy man(ager)
The Villa boss said:
'I was delighted with that. I thought the performance was magnificent. It was really important to get the first goal and that was something we set out to do. It's been far too long at Villa Park since we got the first goal - I think it was Reading back in January. But while that was important, I thought our overall performance was really terrific. I think the crowd were treated to some scintillating football and that today was us more or less back to our best.'
Adding he was also pleased we kept a clean sheet, first in 18 games I believe: 'We also kept a clean-sheet for the first time in ages and I was pleased with everyone. We had a little spell just after half-time where we had to defend stoutly and maybe we got a wee bit of luck once or twice. But just as Bolton felt they might be coming back into the game we got a magnificent second goal and took the game away from them.'
He also pinpoints Gabby and Barry adding, 'I also thought Stiliyan Petrov did very well indeed, but there were plenty of impressive performances and there's a bit of a buzz again around the dressing room.'
