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

MON Taking The Peace?

Monny has admitted that we were slightly rusty in our opening Peace Cup match against Malaga, but he's confident we can still progress.

Tonight we take on Atlante and if we win by two clear goals we will see ourselves progress onto the next stage of the tournament - something that looked impossible only a few days ago.

Speaking on the official site O'Neill said he was looking forward to us 'regaining' our form and getting our pre season back on track. Hopefully that's not last seasons form.

'We looked rusty in that opening match but that was only to be expected A few of the senior lads, like Carew, Heskey, Petrov and Young, only came back to training four or five days before we flew out.'

Admitting that the loss to Malaga was a massive disappointment he said:

'I would have liked not to get beat against Malaga so it would have left destiny in our own hands at that time. It is set up for us now and I would have taken this scenario after the result the other night.'

It's not just the fans who are expecting more from the team tonight, it seems our manager does aswell.

'I am hoping we will do better this evening. The Mexicans will certainly not be pushovers. It won't be easy but we need to express ourselves a bit more tonight.'
