We Were Excellent Is The Verdict

We Were Excellent Is The Verdict

Great stuff, we've not had an after match verdict this quick since erm last February, double bonus a win and I get to go to bed early!

Speaking on the official site after the shock 3-1 victory over 'title contenders' Liverpool tonight, Monny was positively glowing with praise for the team.

Rightly to, it was a phenomenal performance and each of them earnt their wages tonight. That is exactly the kind of commitment, desire and determination we expect to see from players pulling on the proud claret and blue.

'I just felt we were excellent. It's a tough place to come. I don't know if the lads had any thoughts in their heads about the last time we played but there was a great focus in the team.

'It's an enormous boost to us. You are under pressure constantly here no matter who you may be and to get that second goal in terms of confidence gave us a great lift.

'In the second-half we knew there was going to be great pressure. But I felt we always had the ability to conjure up something else because there are goals in the team.

'I thought we defended very strongly in midfield as well. Just the overall effort of the team was there for all to see.'


O'Neill also commented that it was the perfect response to our 'form' so far this season after our back to back losses to Wigan and Rapid Vienna, and it was exactly the kind of response he had wanted to see.

I think I can echo all Villan's tonight in saying it's exactly the kind of response we had wanted to see aswell.

Now let's carry this on against Vienna and get our season properly back on track.

Sorry but because we beat the scouse 1-3 when on performance we were very lucky not to lose 7-1 does not constitute "perfect response to our form", we were still poor tonight and the fact Torres and his band of cheats shot them selves in the feet with their constant "he elbowed me in the face" rants (even when no one was near them) made it easier for us..........Wigan won us by 2 goals and deserved it but did we really deserve to win tonight? na

Hey Doc, it was plain to see the effort our lads put in was 110% but the reason we wasn't losing 2-0 in the first 10 mins was because the scouse was trying to get our players sent off, Torres (sir dive-alot) should have had 7 yellow cards in that game (including the one he got) but he didnt, Lucas should have been sent off from the challanges he put in but didnt, we won but it was lucky, an own goal, a penalty no question and a set piece, as a manager its not how i would want to win
