With his voice as quiet as your average Arsenal crowd following the game on Monday, it`s taken JFK a while to get his roar back, following a heady binge on Tunes, Soothers and Fishermans Friends. However when he did speak it was a chuffed character as he soaked up the ambience of the 2-0 Villa win. Kinnear said:

‘Joey was outstanding in the game on Monday – him and Nicky Butt are the heartbeat of our side. The pair of them have been superb and have given us a real platform to build on in the games since I`ve been here.

Their performances are giving everyone confidence and you can see everyone else rising up and getting a lift because of their performances. I thought we were excellent on Monday – we really deserved our win and the confidence and lift that will give everyone is immense. We go to Fulham now with our heads held high. We`re only a few points off the top half of the table, which just goes to show how tight the league is, and there is a real confidence and belief in the players.”
