O'Neill Says Intertoto Set Up Nicely For Villa

O'Neill Says Intertoto Set Up Nicely For Villa

Martin O'Neill said after the 2-2 draw in the Inter that the result sets Villa up for next week at home.

The Villa boss told the official site:

'We've drawn the game and scored two goals away from home. Considering the circumstances I'm reasonably satisfied. By the time we play them again next week we should be much fitter.'

Yup, another week of training and a few new arrivals and off we go!

He added, that he felt we started well and the own goal by new boy Steve Sidwell was unavoidable and admitted Villa started to look tired in the second half adding:

'It was just disappointing that we conceded so late in the game. But it's all set up now for Villa Park next week. I would expect that by this time next week we'd be much, much fitter again and that's important. We've been at it for just over a fortnight now and it was so important for us tonight to stay in the competition. We've scored the two goals and we'll be better for next week.'

I AM IN ENGLAND FOR A MONTH and I'm going to the second leg at Villa Park to sing my heart out for the lads. Therefore we will win. Not impressed with tonight's performance but we are not looking match fit, and we missed Barry, dare I say it. It looks like the writing's on the wall for the new regime - spend now or face the consequences. We have no chance of repeating 6th place let alone pushing on based on what we've seen tonight.

Our first competitive game of the new season and we didnt perform very well and people will question the teams ability for next season. Lets just wait and see how things develop come the Man City game!

Its early in the season yet, the lads aren't up and running things will be fine, there was glimps's of the Villa of last season in ashley,laursen,carew and the dangerous set plays. Thats not a bad result tonight considering. I'm looking forward to Saturday. come on the lads.
