Monny Dunne With The Praise

Monny Dunne With The Praise

Martin O'Neill has singled out Richard Dunne for praise after an immense performance against Manchester City tonight.

Speaking on the official site after the 1-1 all draw Monny described Dunne's performance as 'absolutely immense' after he bagged a goal and also almost helped keep a clean sheet.

However, Monny of the Heskey loving clan, also wished to pay praise to Collins and Warnock for slotting in so well to our back four since they joined, and it's hard to not agree given we look tighter at the back than at any point since the loss of Martin Laursen.

Quite why there's no special praise for a £7.8 million centre half playing at right back I don't know - but then again I don't know why Hokey cokey was playing on the right wing either. I know Nuffink!

'Richard was magnificent - he put in a real man of the match performance. He was absolutely immense. There's not much more to add really - it was just a great performance.'

Moving onto James Collins, Monny was equally as gushing with his praise insisting that Collins isn't a figment our imagination:

'James is a real player - he competes and he has composure on the ball too. In the past that's probably something we haven't had.

'Stephen has been really quality too.'

Not sure we've never had composure in defence before, other than those moments where everyone other than defenders have played there?

O'Neill goes on to admit the lack of a second goal put us under pressure, and after the break we were second best.

'I didn't want half-time to come because we were playing very strongly.

'We needed that second goal but it just wasn't to be. We were disappointed with the result, but certainly not the performance.'

But there's more. Apparently the 4th official asked Monny to put a bib on (enter your own joke) because apparently his top clashed with City's awway strip.

Good to see that's the reason our strikers were irrelevant today, everytime they heard the manager shout they got confused as to the direction of the goal.

'He asked me to change it because it was playing tricks with the linesman on the far side.'

On a serious point, how fecking stupid was that linesman. How often are any team offside within the 'technical area' as it pertains to the halfway line?

What next, fans in the crowd will have to be removed because some idiot can't distinguish them from the 10 players on the pitch?

Offside - but I was only in the toilet Guv honest.

Haha yeah I noticed his Britney Spears-esque 'costume change' part way through the match - I though he was just trying to boost sales of Villa wear!

I have to admit ... I MAY have been wrong about Dunne on that showing. Wow. But I'll wait for a few more games which are NOT against the team that understandably dumped like an piece of c***. What a good performance. Good game that was spoilt by Heskey's inclusion. Time to go, even the players don't have faith in you m8. Well done Dunney!

Dunney man of the match and deserved it, never scored like that for us, but good game fair result, a bit disappointed with the Villa fans over Barry, given that he nearly went to liverpool the year before and stayed and gave Villa 100%, I am sure that most of you thought he would go this summer and his move did not come as a surprise, just a matter of where he went to, but thats loyalty for you.

Dunne and Collins. Fantastic signings... especially the ginger one who could prove to be an absolute gem. I was most impressed with Warnock though. He could be pushing for a world cup place with showings like that. Also, a word for Carlos Cuellar. Considering the guy was playing out of position, he was as much of a rock as the rest of the back four.
