Martin O'Neill admitted the result - a draw - v Wolves was about right today.
The Villa boss said we started 'brilliantly' calling us a 'joy to watch' adding, 'That opening was as good football as we have played in recent times and I include the opening half against Manchester United at Wembley.'
It was well played, the movement was all forward and despite the on form and interested John Carew borderline offside, none of us there were complaining!
He also called Ashley Young 'mesmerising'.
No arguments here, he whipped in some great crosses, shame that more often than not there was no-one dying to get to the ball but that isn't Ash's fault.
Fabio Capello was at Villa Park, he can't help but have seen how good Ash was can he? He can't have failed to see just how poor our 'striker' Emile Heskey was either I'd assume? That said, he played a part in our second goal but also in giving the ball to Wolves for their second. Yin and yang of football! lol
'When they scored the second goal of course - and the game having turned - it was hard to fight back. Thankfully we did and I was delighted. In terms of effort that the team have put in, I am not despondent at all. It would have been great to keep up the performance of the opening 25 minutes but, no, it was a different game in the second half. We had to fight for every inch.'
He also promised: 'There will be a lot of twists and turns before the end of the season in the fight for the Champions League spot.'
