ON THIS DAY

After the Chelsea horror show of the previous weekend, Villa and Martin O'Neill bounce back with a win and a clean sheet to steady the ship after a difficult few days. O'Neill's public commitment to his post however wasn't universally accepted as gospel and many expected there would be fall-out still to come, the only question that remained was when.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI was overwhelmed by the support of the fans. โ€œIt was terrific and I am eternally grateful. โ€œI would like to continue in this job as manager because I enjoy it and think there are things to do for the club. โ€œAston Villa supporters will play a part, the chairman will play a big part because he is my employer. โ€œAnd I will also play a part in proceedings because itโ€™s my future.โ€ โ€œThis was an important day because we showed the people we have character and that you have to occasionally put things into perspective - maybe one wretched half-hour [at Chelsea] shouldnโ€™t take the gloss of a brilliant season. โ€œIf that situation did develop, [Lernerโ€™s selling policy] that wouldnโ€™t necessarily mean I would go and down tools and say, โ€˜Well, listen, we canโ€™t go any further.โ€™ โ€œWhat you would do is see if you can come up with some other ways, maybe through the scheme here with the younger players coming through, maybe with a bit of trading here and there, maybe taking a risk with a major player to be transferred (out) to sort things out. โ€œYou wouldnโ€™t just down tools. Itโ€™s not been in my nature to do that. I couldnโ€™t envisage that sort of scene - just throwing the toys out of the pram.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill.
