O'Neill 'I'm Always Looking Over My Shoulder'!

Martin O'Neill says he never felt Sunderland were comfortable in the league - even after a run of three wins out of four in December seemed to have dispelled fears.
Martin O'Neill: “We have to try to win some matches now, that’s what it’s all about.
“I’m not relaxed about things. I’m always concerned.
“You must concern yourself.
“If you are in the bottom half of the table you are always looking over your shoulder – I’m not the only manager thinking that.
“There are a lot of games that you play during the course of the season where it is all about fine lines.
“Of course there are some games where you can dominate from start to finish and win two or three nil - chances are that that happens to the likes of Man United and Man City regularly.
“But against teams in the middle of the table especially it can be very close and just go either way and we’ve just been on the receiving end of a few of those that haven’t gone our way.
“Now we’ve got to go out there and edge some of these games in our favours because it’s all about getting points on the board - at this stage of the season especially – and that’s all we’re focused on.”
