'If It's Football, It's Vital'

O'Neill Enjoying Rattling Cages

Martin O'Neill says the squad is having fun shaking the top four and hopes to end up replacing one of the established teams come the end of the season.

The Villa boss told the official site:

'The players are really enjoying it. It is great and there is a tremendous excitement among the players about the run-in. I think that's probably because we haven't been in this position before. That's the great thing. The big four sides - Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool - have been there on merit now for some considerable time. They generally know what it's all about.'

He says Villa have made it 'frighteningly difficult' for those teams adding, 'They have budgeted for Champions League football - we haven't.'



He also says despite the top four having it their way for a while Villa have 'rattled a few cages' this year!

'Can we stay with it? There is no reason why we shouldn't be in the mix at the end of the season. There should be no reason at all. We should be there. We have kept it going now for the past six months and we now only have three months to go now.'

And 3 points tonight v Manchester City would certainly help, if not Arsenal will certainly get the sent of snatching our place from us as they are currently only 3 points behind.

Exciting and scary times. COME ON VILLA!
