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.

Midfielder Jordan Veretout hasn't just had to adjust to life in a new country, at a new club and with a new language, there was also the small matter...
Err. The Vital Villa man of the match v Stoke City...
