Manager 'Devastated' As Villa Capitulate v Chelsea

Manager 'Devastated' As Villa Capitulate v Chelsea

Martin O'Neill has spoken about a 'tough lesson' at Stamford Bridge today and admits that Villa 'capitulated' making it a 'devastating' result for him.

'It was as devastating as I've had in the game. I've been in the game as a player and a manager quite some considerable time and you get taught quite a few lessons on the way and that was a tough as any.'

He says they know they'll have to do better at Wembley.

'We have to fight back and we intend to do so. From our own viewpoint, that wasn't good enough. In terms of finishing fourth - on that performance we wouldn't finish 44th.

No commentary or comment from me needed.

Dunno what happened to your boys today. Not impressed with them trying to ruin the title race. At least this will put an end to all the Martin O'Neill to succeed Fergie nonsense. I've got more chance of getting the job.
