Was Martin O'Neill Right In UEFA? Yes Apparently

Vital Villa asked in our last poll whether Martin O'Neill was right to field an understrength team in the UEFA Cup game v Hamburg.

Seems he was, as 63% voted yes!

That left 22% saying they'd have hated it if they had travelled to the game and 9% saying no he wasn't right.

The 6% remaining voted 'time will tell!'

Our latest poll asks for your win, lose, draw predictions for West Ham v Villa.

CSKA Moscow are easy? They won the UEFA cup in 2005. Easy would have been if we won the group and played NEC Nijmegen (Hamburgs opponent), who are presently 7th in the very weak Dutch league? Nevermind, lets wish Hamburg good luck against them, although they wont need it!

Wonder if that poll would be the same if it was conducted now???

You all seem to forget that we always play well against the better teams i'm glad we have tough opposition at least MON will take it seriously and put out a full strength team

I actually voted 'Yes' after the final whistle on Wednesday and I stand by that vote. Two words. Bigger. Picture.

I can appreciate and to some extent understand exactly why MON took the decision that he did, but personally I disagree with this desire to put everything onto the back burner in pursuit of a top four finish. What does fourth place in the premiership get you? Entry into the qualifying round of next seasons Champions League, a qualifying game we could easily lose, and end up being out of europe altogether. Surely the name of the game is winning trophies, and you get no trophy for finishing fourth, at least you didn't last time I heard.

I'm very much in the minority I know, but give me fifth and/or sixth place in the premiership, and an F.A. Cup or UEFA Cup victory, over merely finishing fourth in the premiership, any day of the week. If we are not going to seriously challenge for the UEFA Cup, then why the hell did we enter the Inter-Toto Cup in the first place?
