Plenty of player reaction following our 1-0 win against Everton on Sunday.
Man (Welsh) mountain James Collins told the Official Site that the spirit in the team is rock hard (rocks... mountains, get it? I'm bloody well wasted on you lot I really am)
'You never heard anyone here say there is no spirit here. We always knew it was there and we've shown everyone who was maybe starting to doubt us that we are still a good team. I think we knew we had to go out and show a bit of grit and steel and the boys were throwing their bodies on the line and tackling. That is what you have got to do because Everton are a good team and you have got to do those dirty things, if you like, to get a result. We showed all last year and again this year, we've got an unbelievable team.'
He says hopefully it will show the game v Newcaslte was a one off and points out that there isn't a crisis and that we are in fact 4th in the league!
Luke Young scorer of the great goal that earnt the win, told AVTV that he didn't have much time to think about it before shooting and calls the win 'massive'.
'It was a good feeling for the goal but I just think the game was massive for us. It was such a big game and suddenly everything has turned round for us again.' Adding, 'I think perhaps we haven't worked so hard as a unit in the last two games and here we did. There were people throwing their bodies on the line and the last 10 minutes were really tough. Everyone was together and we got a great win. The amount of corners that they had, it felt like a dozen at least in the last 10 minutes.'
And finally young star Marc Albrighton also on www.avfc.co.uk admitted it had been a hard week so the team showed plenty of character to come back with an important league win.
'More than anything we put in a great shift. Everyone worked for each other and we got a great result. We were under the cosh in the second-half but we defended like Trojans - the back four, the midfield and even the strikers.'
And on his miss, 'I should have made it 2-0 - I think I was reading headlines before I put the ball in the net! It is disappointing not to score a goal but I should have reacted better. It took me five minutes to get over it which I have got to work on - get on with it, it has gone, you can't do anything about it so look for the next one.'
All interviews by Dan The Man Harrison on www.avfc.co.uk and so much more including ticket news for those interested, not so many yesterday it seems! :o)
