Martin O'Neill said: 'I feared all our hard work was going to be for nothing' before Gabriel Agbonlahor slotted home the equaliser. Poor lad, I'd thought the players had fallen out with him, he spent the whole night on the wing only to see the ball constantly played the opposite side of the pitch!
The Villa boss added after the 1-1 draw
'We definitely got what we deserved in the end. In the first-half we were very poor. We were nervous and unable to hold onto the ball. In the second-half, I thought considering we could have been dead and buried at half-time, we came roaring back and deserved something. The crowd realised that and were lifted by a number of second-half chances. That galvanised us and, though I feared we might not get the goal, we did and it was the least we deserved.'
Adding on avfc.com: 'The second-half was terrific, but we've got to look at ourselves for what was a very, very poor first-half. We were tentative and edgy. At this stage of the season we're just looking to get those points for safety. A win tonight would have put us 11th in the league, but in the end at least we took a point from the game. If Gabby's goal had come earlier, who knows? I still thought once we got the goal that we might go on and win it. I think Everton sensed that as well, but we never really got enough possession after that.'
Can't wait to get this season over with, just play the last few games and off we skip into a spending spree summer, we can't have any more seasons like this, the one before, the one before, the one before......
Anyone else fancy doing a match report? Come on, lets have a different opinion!? Will check my mail box in the morning, if not it will be the usual JF ramble, and we don't want that do we? (Link to my email address in editor details as above)
