MATCH QUOTES

โ€œTo take one point from three games would be a worry. โ€œBut to take just one from eight games is a disaster. "I know there will be calls for change in personnel whether it involves me or the players. The parasites will come out of the woodwork. โ€œWe're going to take a lot of flak but I have faith that well get it right. That could have been any one of the last eight games we've played. โ€œSomeone at this club must have driven over a cat!" Ron Atkinson. "It was a bad goal for us to concede. The ball had been cleared and someone in midfield should have closed in on Ince before he had the chance to shoot." Paul McGrath "You saw it for yourself. โ€We've played like that all season and the same things happened. โ€œlt's got to change. Maybe weโ€™ll start playing garbage soon and get a win" Steve Staunton. โ€œMaybe we got a bit more than we deserved today. We spent the last 20 minutes just defending but at least we did that well. โ€œIt wasn't one of our best performances. We had to dig in for the result. โ€œBut you're got to ignore Villa's position. Believe me. we played a good side today." Alex Ferguson.
