Martin O'Neill's Post Posh Verdict

Martin O'Neill's Post Posh Verdict

Martin O'Neill says he was happy with the 'kids' performance against Peterborough.

The team was:

Friedel, Cuellar, Knight, Davies, Shorey; Bannan, Sidwell, Reo-Coker (skipper), Albrighton, Harewood,Weimann, Subs: Parish, Lowry, Lichaj, Roome, Hofbauer, Herd, Clark, Osbourne, McGurk, Collins.

On the official site the Villa boss said some of them did 'exceptionally well' although he wasn't surprised as he has been watching them over the last few seasons and is 'delighted' to have so many young talented players fighting to get into the first team.

'It was really refreshing to see Barry, Marc and Andreas combine for that first goal. It was a short corner from Barry to Marc who put it in with a cross and then Andreas finished it off. And that was from three boys who have exactly no Premier League experience between them at all. It was very encouraging.'

MON admits there were some 'scary' moments early on but thinks Villa did better in the second half.

'I thought we did better in the second half. Curtis's goal was fantastic. After that run, it would have taken him a long time to get back if he hadn't finished it off. We managed to get all the players on the field too - some got more time than others - and we're now looking forward to Colchester on Tuesday.'

Apparently Sidwell did very well and could actually replace Barry in the centre...

big season for Sidwell, in fact a massive one for him. He has the chance now to really push in and obviously has a pre-season and fitness this time around whereas last year he was always playing catch up then picked up another knock. ALSO a bit season for Shorey, I would love to see him get a good chance, I think when he played he looked ok for us last season!

I agree Fear I thought Shorey got a weird deal last season, I was most home games and saw the rest and whenever he played he looked great going forward and only occasionally weak at the back. And Cuellar was an excellent CB at in the UEFA for rangers so I hope to god we get a proper back up RB so he can play in the middle.

Cuellar does look the natural choice at the price we paid to at least attempt to replace Laursen doesn't it? Surely it would make sense as that is his best position...! And with Shorey, makes you wonder if something happened off the pitch same as the JC incident because he was in one minute and exiled for a fair while without any obvious reason that we could see?!? As you say simonbigron, he looked good going forward especially.
