MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIโ€™ve been told about the banners. That comes with football now. It can happen to any of us at any time. โ€œThere were 32,000 people in the ground and the vast majority of them, like myself, want to take Villa forward. โ€œWe canโ€™t complain about the fans today. If there are one or two banners out of 32,000 people, then I am big enough to take that on the chin.โ€ David Oโ€™Leary.
