MON Delighted With Villa Win & Gabby Class

MON Delighted With Villa Win & Gabby Class

Martin O'Neill spoke to www.avfc.co.uk after our fantastic 2-0 win v Fulham singling out striker Gabby Agbonlahor for special praise.

Gabby, now on 12 goals this season (go on Gabby, you get beyond 20 for us, been a while since someone has, think the last was Yorkie wasn't it? Certainly the last striker in the league to get 20 was Peter Withe) got his just desserts according to MON adding 'I thought he played excellently today as well.'

And on the result, 'I'm delighted with the team today. I thought we deserved to win......Just to win today was a big boost for us.'

He also said to Sky Sports that Gabby took his chances 'magnificently' calling the second (a pass from Carlos Cuellar with much left to do) 'just absolute class.'

If you've not seen the goal, you are in for a treat on Match of the Day tonight.

MON added, 'It's three very valuable points for us in our quest to try and stay with the leading pack.'

He also says that Villa are looking to go on a run now to keep with or ahead of the rest of the chasing pack. 'Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Liverpool - you never write Liverpool off at all and they're still capable of winning four or five consecutive games. That is something that we're trying to do. A couple of times this season we've gone three or four and we would like to be able to do that. Then we would count ourselves a real, proper side.'

In an exclusive with Vital Villa, MON added '........'

One day maybe! :o)

One thing is for sure, Villa fans, team and manager will be smiling all the way home from London tonight.

We will have the welcome return of Glensider's expert away match reports to look forward to tomorrow as well.

Delighted for Gabby as he comes in for a fair amount of stick at times. He puts in bags of effort, and scores some very good & important goals, and he improves season upon season in my opinion. He is also one of us & never reacts to any criticism, just keeps on going doing his best for us. He does frustrate at times & is not the natural goalscorer we still require, but even with a great goalscorer I would still have Gabby in our team/squad. Well done lad, keep it up!!!!!

I'm pretty sure Angel manage 20 one season didn't he? Not sure which one, probably the year were still on for fourth on the last day. (20 goals overall that is, not league goals)

what a surprise. Villa win and only three comments! If we had lost we would see all the usuals lining up to tell us how useless Gabby and Heskey are. Brilliant result, makes up for last season when we got battered there!

Good win. Two goals that didn't rely on Gabby's natural pace as well. The first showed strength and the second a cool curled finish - nice one Gabby!
