O'Neill Takes The Positives From The Blip
Martin O'Neill believes that our younger players will learn a hell of a lot during our current 'difficult' spell.
Speaking on the official site he explained that he believes the players can benefit from experiencing the lows and disappointment of a Top 4 challenge and by learning about how tough the demands are on players when they want to compete at the top.
'They have to experience this. This is what it's about if you are going to go and play at the very top.
'You play and you want to be there, and you want to be there not just for one week of the year, but you want to be there on a regular basis.
'I think players can learn from the way other teams play but you've got to go and compete.'
O'Neill will also have learnt a lot about our players over the last few weeks and about our weaknesses.
There's no doubt we'll bounce back, I just hope it comes soon enough for us not to have ruined all the hard work that has gone in this season.
