Martin O'Neill was happy with the win against Blackburn saying Villa played 'splendidly' but much like Milner and Petrov (see: ) warns the tie isn't over yet.
What better reason to get a ticket and support the lads next week then? Ticket details: www.avfc.co.uk/tickets
MON added on the official site that Villa created loads but sadly weren't able to bury them. 'However, I'm delighted with the performance. It was very pleasing indeed. I couldn't stress enough, though, that I think the tie is in the balance. I think Blackburn are capable of going away from home and winning so we will have to be very strong again and we'll have to try and win the game.'
He also pointed out how well James Milner and Stiliyan Petrov played saying they were 'exceptional'.
MON also said on camera last night and on the official site how unfair it was that Gabby got booked for diving - ie cheating - when he clearly was fouled and should have had a penalty and also points out that Clattenburg missed a clear hand ball by Pascal Chimbonda and instead of giving us a penalty gave them a free kick.
'I was obviously disappointed with Gabby's one because that's accusing him of seeking an advantage when there's absolutely no chance of that. On the top of Ashley a couple of weeks ago at Arsenal when he nearly ended up in an ambulance and the referee decided he dived, it's just getting a bit ridiculous really, it's crazy. What happens of course is you're booked for diving in the first half of the game and you have to be very careful after that.'
Certainly were two clear penalties and sadly the ref bottled it, put just one of those away and the tie would be all but over. Oh well, leaves us with everything to play for next week, should be an exciting night and we have at least got one foot at Wembley now... lets make sure we stomp BOTH feet very firmly there!
