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

Sunderland To Get Dunne

Ha never gets old! Richard Dunne has echoed Monny's comments that the team need to be focused tonight and build on our victory at Old Trafford.

Speaking ahead of tonight's clash against Sunderland, Richard Dunne has said that O'Neill is very good at keeping players focused on the challenges ahead, and despite the victory over Man U, the last few days has seen no deviation from that outlook.

The teams feet are firmly on the floor and they are ready for the Black Cats!

'Everyone should be happy, we've done great to beat Manchester United but the moment you start patting yourself on the back you can come crashing back to earth.'

Consistency in both results and playing performance have been lacking this season, and it's not just the fans who would love to see us finally stop the win - draw or lose form we've seen so far.

Building upon the Man U win by taking another 3 points off Sunderland - especially if we can put in a reasonably convincing performance would be a great tonic at the Christmas fixture list hots up.

Dunne added on the Official Site that the team were also not getting too carried away with the league at the moment, given there are so many matches left and no doubt a few of the team have learnt that lesson from last season.

'It's too early to look at the table, there are so many games.'

The centre half finished with a 'stating the obvious moment' by saying they just needed to keep on picking up points.

Almost a 'Que Sera Sera' moment, and yes I have no idea if I spelt that right either.

We have to get maximum points from the next two games before facing Liverpool and Arsenal.

I agree Stig, believe the next two games are more important than the Arse game especially with Spuds and Citeh facing off against each other this week, we can pull away and put a gap between 4th and 5th - Now that would be a nice Xmas Present! :-)

got such an awful feeling going into tonight's game. please don't choke, villa. we're losing to all the teams that, on paper, we should beat. and we're beating teams that wage tremendous odds against. i'd take a gritty 1 - 0 right now. and then hammer the sh i t out of stoke for what they did to us last season. twice. i'm actually very confident about the liverpool game, although i expect them to be back in the top 6 by the time we play them. absolutely clueless about the arsenal game but know for a fact the players and MON will want it, endlessly. any streams for tonights game? iraqgoals has gone a bit anti-villa? justin.tv stopped being good halfway thru last season? COME ON YOU VILLA BOYS!
