Martin O'Neill said the win at the Stadium of Light last night was 'extraordinary'. James Milner's goal certainly was, if you haven't seen that yet, move heaven and earth to do so... I do love our Jimmy!
MON said on AVTV: 'It is an extraordinary result - really extraordinary Any time going to the Stadium of Light is very very, difficult but there was a lot of expectation too tonight. The players put in a big effort on late Saturday evening. They came here and to put in the work they did again was just fantastic.'
Adding that he thinks it was our best win of teh season, especially as it is such a difficult place to go.
On the goals he said: 'It was another goal and a great finish from Emile. It's a number of goals he's got now - three in relatively quick succession. James did very well again too. You almost feel like he's played that position - central midfield - his entire career.'
And his favourite word came out to play as well saying that 'collectively we were terrific' Can't argue with that and now we have Downing in the side and Milner in the centre, it appears the hoof balls is subsiding and we are playing the football we are so capable of. Happy days, now bring on Stoke!
