MON's Post Spurs Loss Reaction

MON's Post Spurs Loss Reaction

Martin O'Neill was disappointed after our 2-1 loss to Spurs today and told the official site he thought we played 'great' in the first half' despite conceding an early goal.

Adding, 'Ashley Young was in great form - really mesmeric in that first half - and it looked as if it was a case of when rather than if we would score. I was very confident in the dressing room at half-time and so were the players. But we conceded a desperately poor goal early in the second half and that was a major setback for us. It rocked us.'

The Villa boss goes on to say the rhythm was gone and adds that they are all 'bitterly disappointed because it was a game we really thought we could win.'

He also admits our home form has been the problem this season and our record at Villa Park has let us down.

Monny, absolute muppet today, I think it's the first time you have *****ed me off. Leaving the defence clueless after taking Knight off, even the commentators said it was like musical chairs, and NRC must be so *****ed off with being moved around the most.

Was it true that Villa fans booed Gabby off? I thought the boos were for MON for taking him off. If first instance is true, then that is a bit callous... after all that he has done for Villa this season? And they say that our fans have short memories...!

To true othello, booing Gabby was disgraceful. Seems to me that 20% of villa fans in the Holte End are proper dic!heads. The atmosphere today reminded me of the D'OL era and the manager and players don't deserve that. They have given us the best season in many years so far, just wish we could support them properly sometimes!!

Gabby wasnt booed....the Holte cheered when he was taken off. I felt for him, but he needs to be put in the reserves to get his touch back. I hate all this we are ahead of schedule nonsense, plus all this 'if you had given us 5th at the start of the season we would of taken it' crap. Thats the talk of mediocrity - its tantamount to giving up. We had our chance against Stoke. Blew it. Against Chelsea. Blew it. Against Spurs. Blew it. Oh, look at the next two away fixtures. We are going to get turned over, unless we go back to the 4-5-1 with Carew the lone striker. Oh and dear lord - please lay your healing hands on Martin Laursen.

Sorry folks, but face it - you've played too many games and your squad is too tired. Playing the reserves and going out of the UEFA cup may still prove to be what saves your season, but yopu've got quite a few players that need to rediscover their form if you want that Champ's league spot.

FCB, don't give me that s h i t e about too tired. They only play football for *****s sake!!! we are very likely to lose 5th place soon too unless we turn it around. Gabby needs to be dropped and someone else given a chance imo.

The fans cheered because after 10 games of poor performances from Gabby, MON finally took him off, the cheers were for O'Neill making the right call (finally) not Gabby coming off. O'Neill finally proved that he is willing to take off his favourites, gabby needs 2 games away from the limelight and then he can come back stronger

The booing was for the clueless manager and the cheers were ironic when he finally noticed Gabby wasn't doing it . Hasn't been for weeks now . Funny how he had noticed Curtis had returned to pub player and dropped him or was that just to get his love child back in the team ?

Not a good day in the office and with one point from the last 15 and two tough away games to come - things are not looking good.
