Ok, Who Doesn't Think Monny Is Delighted?

Ok, Who Doesn't Think Monny Is Delighted?

The official verdict isn't out yet on the OS, but Sky are carrying their interview with him on SSN, so I'll use that instead.

Speaking to Sky Sports News (bet you didn't see that coming) Monny has obviously hailed the performance and determination of the squad to fightback from 2-0 down within the first 30 minutes in tonight's match, and secure ourselves a place in the Carling Cup Final with an end of match score of 6-4. (7-4 on aggregate, although why it's different if you are on gravel I don't know).

'I am absolutely delighted, it has been a big effort. We fought back fantastically and deserved to go through over the two legs.'

Whilst Sam Allardyce in his interview with the BBC directly after the match seemed more concerned with rubbishing the referee for letting us back into the match and finding excuses, instead of praising his players for being part of one of the best semi finals ever, O'Neill chose his words carefully and simply reminded Sam of the first leg.

'We could have been well ahead in this tie if the referee had made the decision for us in the first game.'

Specifically referencing the handball in the box to which Blackburn received the freekick, and the blatant foul on Gabby in the box, to which he received a yellow card.

Yup, O'Neill won the battle of which Ref was crap during the two legs aswell.

I really can't stand him. He's now my most hated manager in the league along with Benitez and Ferguson. http://www.rovers.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10303~1939168,00.html?

The standard of refereeing in the two legs shouldn't be the talking point for us Villa fans. Let the Blackburn fans complain, as they aren't going to Wembley. What should concern us as Villa fans is the utter tripe being served up by Martin O'Neill. Over the two legs, it was Blakcburn who, despite operating on a shoestring budget, and despite being managed by 'Long-ball Sam', played the better football. And Martin O'Neill thinks this side of his is the best footballing side we've had for 20 years?? (Interesting that he chooses the figure of 20 years by the way. 20 years ago, our manager was Graham Taylor, and much as I respect the guys achievements at Villa (which, by the way, far outshine O'Neill's), GT's brand of football wasn't the most aesthetically pleasing, even if it was successful.) Having witnessed the fruits of O'Neill's labour, I've concluded that this Villa team can beat anyone. And the reason is not that O'Neill has methodically, and expertly, crafted a good team with Lerner's money. Give a monkey enough time and he'll manage to type out a Shakespearean tragedy. Give a Monny enough money, and he'll assemble a comedy football team. No, the reason we can beat anyone is that O'Neill is the luckiest manager alive. He's proven it by dispatching a superior side in the semi-finals of the League Cup, and he may well prove it when his Villa team beat either one of the sides from Manchester, not withstanding the fact that both are on an entirely different planet to O'Neill's boys. Some, if not all, who read this will simply say, Who cares if we're crap? We're going to Wem-ber-ley!!! Winning is all that matters. Well, even if O'Neill's luck holds (and history suggests it may not; last season's 4th place p*ssed up the wall anyone?), and we do win a League Cup, what's it worth when it's purely down to dumb luck? Come to think of it, 'dumb' and 'lucky' are two words that describe O'Neill very well. But not as well as 'embarassment'. As in, he's an embarassment to this great club, and an embarassment to football. And given what an astronomically devalued currency football is these days, that's quite some achievement. I really wish I could cease caring about Aston Villa FC, at least until we're rid of this awful man, and damn you for making me think that Martin O'Neill! Damn you, and your breathtaking ignorance and ineptitude!
