O'Neill Praises Resilience In Verdict

O'Neill Praises Resilience In Verdict

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?

I thought it would have been a good PR exercise for the club to acknowledge the support at Wembley either around the ground with banners or (more ecconomically) with a half time announcement over the speakers. Nice to be appreciated, just wish it would happen - can you hear me RANDY? And get some decent burgers. I want to support my clubs catering department and always buy food inside the ground. But generally it is crap and I would rather buy the products outside the ground cos they look and smell so much better.

I notice that on the OS Mon is quoted as being "delighted", wish I was so easily delighted I would be so much happier if I was delighted all the time.

If suggesting that it might be sensible to play people in their best position, that in a long season in several competitions players are rotated, that young players could be given a chance to find their feet in less important games, that substitutes might be used before 70 minutes and in a tactical way, that you don't make the club suffer because of petty differences of opinion with strong minded players, that a smarter approach to the transfer market is used ..... makes me a MoN hater (other posts) ... then I own up. Trouble is I don't hate the man. I don't even want him out IF HE CAN LEARN AND CHANGE. He and his teams are so predictable, they'll put a new word in the dictionary. To 'O'Neil it' will mean to not change a thing whilst blaming bad luck and saying everything is excellent and brilliant.
