Martin O'Neill has tonight paid tribute to the resilience of the squad for fighting back and securing a draw in tonight's match against Everton.
Speaking on the Official Site only a few short hours after the final whistle went Monny described himself as being 'thrilled' with our never say die attitude and that he believed we were more than worthy of sharing the spoils tonight.
He also refused to give up on our dream for 4th place.
'It was enthralling from start to finish, we certainly deserved the equiliser without doubt.'
He qualifies this by commenting we could've, and dare I say should've, been well infront by halftime.
'I just thought we were terrific, I thought we kept going and I thought the fitness levels were incredible really considering the same players had been going at it.'
O'Neill continues to admit it is now going to be very tough indeed for us to get 4th place, but like a very sad joke on the forum earlier I give you:
'I would think now after tonight, we would have to win all five.'
Told you it would be on the official site soon!
More honestly O'Neill adds that Everton's two goals were disappointing by our defensive standards, but appreciates that Cahill does have the habit of popping up and grabbing goals so he wasn't too down about it.
He also confirms that Warnock is feeling better now but is pretty sore after his knock, and the full damage if any will be known tomorrow.
A 2-2 draw against Everton isn't too bad, especially given how badly we played but it seems like we are in for another disappointing end of season in the league, if we aren't already there, and I'm just not seeing anything different from last year.
Other than Delfouneso getting on the pitch, on the right of midfield it seems.
That said plenty of us had us down for a loss tonight, so maybe it is a point gained?
