McAllister won't consider knee-jeck reaction

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa caretaker manager Gary McAllister has bemoaned his side's recent form but is optimistic the club can rise up the league before the end of the season.

After the resignation of Martin O'Neil days before the season began, the Villans, under Gerard Houllier, have struggled to live up to the standards set when the Northern Irishman was at the helm.

But McAllister is certain the club can bounce back.

“It’s not good enough. We know that and the players know that. That’s the frustrating thing.


“I know the stats, if we’d remained in front of all of those games we might have been talking about something else so that’s something we’re very aware of.

“There’s not a great deal needs changing here. What happened here before we came suggests that.

“We’ve had a season which we know has not been good enough, but there’s still been pluses.

“If we tickle it and get it right there’s no massive change needed.

“It’s a case of Gerard stamping his philosophy on and putting his stamp on the club and the team.”
