O'Neill Comments on Newcastle Defeat

O'Neill Comments on Newcastle Defeat

Fresh from his non rotating rotation and subsequent 2-0 defeat at the hands Newcastle United Martin O'Neill thinks if Villa had captalised on their chances, it could have been a much different story.

Martin Laursen rattled the post, Gabby Agbonlahor perhaps proved that people shouldn`t get too excited just yet, and Shay Given saved well when "faced" with Ashley Young hitting the ball right at his head, before 95 year old Obafemi Martins hit a second-half brace to lift the Magpies off of the foot of the table.

O'Neil spoke to avfc.co.uk:

"We should have been 3-0 up at half-time. I thought we played brilliantly in the first half real free-flowing football. It was great to watch and the boys were enjoying it.

"We had great chances. Martin had an effort clip the post, Gabby missed a sitter and their goalkeeper made a wonderful save from Ashley Young.

"If we had taken one of those chances, we would have had something to hang on to after the break."


He added:

"I thought if we showed the same application and determination in the second half as was evident in the first, we would go on to win it. But it wasn't to be."

eerrrrrrrrrrrrrrr what game was oneill watching? we were shi.te from start to finish. as for his ridiculous substitution of shorey, putting young to right back, and coker who was knackered to right back was a joke. why not take coker off and just do like for like coker for sidwell???????? Jonas or duff didnt get behind us at all until this crazy change. very disapointing from all of the players and oneill especially - he got it very very wrong.

What a thoroughly disappointing and depressing night. MON's comments dont I'm afraid make the loss any harder to take.

We had good support up there too. The drive home seemed never ending as the inquest took place, as we tried to comprehend why we just didn't compete.
