Good blog by Phil McNulty on bbc: http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/philmcnulty/2009/08/oneill_stung_by_critics.html I asked O'Neill whether he was hurt by the criticism and he said: "We have won at Anfield and the players were simply brilliant. "I said at the time if you are booed off at the end of the game when you have not played well and you deserve that then fine, but I was disconcerted by it at half-time against Wigan. I didn't hear Liverpool being booed off at half-time when they were two goals down here." Point made and he had one. It is a big season for O'Neill, his fourth at Villa and one when he needs to at least make close acquaintance with silverware, but to deliver a resounding raspberry in the general direction of such a manager and his team 45 minutes into a new season is nonsensical.

I did not hear the boo's on tv at half time from Liverpool. Think that may be just lazy journalism. The fact of the matter is, after 45 minutes of the opening game of the season, instead of inspire our team to get the 3 points, we boo them. It is so dissapointing. Is it any wonder our away record is so much better than our home. With a bit of inspiration we can beat anyone, as last night showed. It just seems some fans want us to have faults so they can moan. No doubt fans will pick fault with this, and miss the point, and whinge. Any excuse. I can completely understand O'Neill being unhappy with the boos at half time from Wigan game. Completely unnacceptable
