Martin O'Neill's Post Sunderland Reaction

Martin O'Neill's Post Sunderland Reaction

Martin O'Neill said after the 2-1 win at the Stadium of light that the 'boys have done brilliantly' against a tough Sunderland opposition.

He also told the official site he didn't know 'where they found it from' when talking about their resolve.

The Villa boss said: 'They found great resolve and great inner strength to fight back for the win. We have done that in a lot of games this season and I have the utmost regard for the players for that. It seemed to be, from where I was standing, an eventful game. Sunderland scored - and deserved to - and it took us some time to get into our stride. After the goal, it was a difficult period but we weathered that and then in the last 20 minutes of the first half, we came into the game and got a bit of rhythm about ourselves.'

Adding, 'In the second half, I thought we did brilliantly. I thought James Milner was fantastic. It's something I shouldn't be shouting about in these parts as an ex-Newcastle man but I was delighted with him. He was fantastic.'

Looks like James Milner is becoming, more and more, a key player for Villa. Think that is what most of us expected isn't it? So nice that it is working out!

slightly over-written artical. you shouldn't try to be so epic. basically, we thought bale would be better than he is. he may yet become world class, but my feeling is he probably needs a change. maybe the summer break will do it...

There is a super star in there struggling to get out. There is so much talent in his boots, the crosses from the left are excellent the free kicks (which amazingly no one is allwing him to take as Bentley seems to grab every opportunity) He has fallen down the pecking order, his confidence is shot, but he still represents close control and crosses from the left and he is the best option we have in that regard. If his defensive abilities need work why not give him a run in left midfield, he has the ability to do a job there and recently Harry was prepared to pay 15mill for Downing and I dont see that he is so much better tahn Bale. Give him a break, and give him a run!
