Race For Fourth Place Still On
Martin O'Neill is adamant that 4th place is still open for grabs, and that Villa are as much in with a shot of grabbing it as anyone else.
Speaking on the Official Site today Monny said that making a proper assessment on the chasing packs battle for 4th place was way too premature given the twists and turns that the Premiership will provide over the coming months, he is however simply happy that we are keeping pace with our immediate rivals.
'I think we are still in the race. I'm just delighted that we are even being considered and we are still there with it and we've got things to look forward to.'
Although Europe went a bit FUBAR this season, there's no doubts we've done well in our Cup runs - afterall we are in a Final!
So whereas last season it was 4th place or bust and we bust, at least this season we haven't stuffed all our eggs in one basket yet we are still up there and we do have a shot (if we can manage a few during a match) of taking the 4th place battle to the wire if we sort ourselves out.
