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.
