A Credit To The Club

A Credit To The Club

Martin O'Neill has hailed the lads tonight as a 'credit to the club' after the battling performance they put in against Arsenal.

Speaking on the Official Site after overseeing us to a 0-0 draw, Monny commented that we managed to shut Arsenal down successfully but was bitterly disappointed that we didn't manage to get the goal and all 3 points.

'I thought we played splendidly in the game, I thought Ashley put in some incredible balls that just needed a glance from someone.'

He adds that Gabby and Downing were desperately unlucky with their chances, and that he'd have been devastated for the lads if we'd have lost it in the final 10 minutes, despite Arsenal hitting the woodwork as often as we had a shot on target.

'They were more than excellent, I thought they were an absolute credit to the football club.'

No just frustrated that we seem to be repeating last season's league shenanigans, yet every game is talked of as 'fantastic' 'brilliant' 'we didn't deserve to lose' 'we played great'. Aren't you?

If the ref had given us our well earned free kicks outside the box maybe we would have won , Gallas bringing down Gabby and Sol Campbell (who should of had a red) unable to stop Dunne so he tripped him as he looked like he was on his way to getting the goal of the season . If i was Dunne i wouldn't have just kicked that arse player i would have gone crazy ape bonkers with a chainsaw . I know its ifs and buts .. but your only going to get so many chances against quality teams like Arsenal so if their taken away from you so is the game most times . Mike .. Enjoy your articles .. keep it up

A better ref would've definitely made a difference I agree, and yes some of the box based fouls would've increased our shots on target tally aswell I would hope, but two shots in a home match (in what was a relatively open match I would say) sticks a bit.

I think its a little unfair to start saying that we are repeating last season already,we have had Arsenal twice and Liverpool in the last month.That is a very difficult run of fixtures,we have them games out of the way and we are still in it.
