Ok, I`ve not got this word for word but it is very close. Kevin Keegan and John Barnes talking to Ray Stubbs:

Presenter: Man Utd won, but it was a stroll, a stroll in the Villa Park… it was incredibly comfortable

Keegan: I came in today thinking Villa could get a result because United not firing on all cylinders … how wrong can you be? Man Utd won at a canter. The minute they went 1-0 up it was sort of game over.

Presenter: Villa, the way they set up their team today what are your observations

Barnes: This is the way they have set up their team the last few games, they isolate Darren Bent and the wide men don`t get up to support him or pressure the defence and they effectively play 4-5-1. They were as poor as they have been.

Presenter: A few words to describe Villa today.

KK: Well, you are playing in front of 37 000 of your own fans, forget the Man Utd fans, YOU HAVE GOT A MORAL OBLIGATION TO GO AND TRY TO WIN A GAME AT HOME… In the first half they were inept there`s no doubt about that, they couldn`t pass it, they couldn`t get out of their own half. In the second half they improved a little and I put them down as mediocre. That`s the best they got to today, yes they created a couple of chances late on but to be honest with you I think this is the worst home display I`ve seen from a team for a very very long time.

KK: Man Utd should have won by more goals.

JB: An easy game for Man Utd
