George O'Callaghan Speaks To The BBC After The 0-4 Defeat Against Norwich
Yeovil Town midfielder George O'Callaghan spoke to BBC Somerset reporter Pete Simson after his side had been beaten 0-4 against Norwich City in the Carling Cup on Tuesday 11th August 2009.

PS: What's your reflection on the game?

GO: It was just very disappointing. I think probably the penalty changed the game. I think it was a very harsh penalty and to be honest I don't think it was a penalty at all. I felt there were a couple of decisions where the referee made a bad mistake on. They really hurt us at the end of the day and I think 4-0 is a hard score to take, especially tonight.

PS: The second half had started very brightly for Yeovil, but you were always chasing the game from the penalty onwards, weren't you?

GO: Yes we were, and Norwich are a good side and I suppose after what happened to them on Saturday (losing 7-1 against Colchester) they were going to look for a response. To be honest, I didn't think it was a 4-0 defeat but it was very disappointing to come off the pitch with that loss. I think we were in there with a shout, but I think it (the penalty decision) was a bad mistake. The gaffer has said that Yeovil don't seem to get any decisions against the big clubs and he seems to be proved right because every time we seem to play a big club since I've come here, those decisions have gone against us.

PS: I guess you'll have to put that to bed, because you've got another big game on Saturday in the league away at Colchester, and in case you need reminding, they're the team that put seven past Norwich on the weekend just gone!

GO: Yes, it just gets better and better doesn't it! No, but it's a great chance for us to bounce back. Colchester are a very good team and they really under-achieved last year. They've had a fantastic start. But I'm sure that come Thursday, the scoreline tonight will be forgotten and I just hope we can put in a good performance on Saturday because the league is the most important thing to us. As long as we establish ourselves up there then I think the gaffer will be happy.

PS: Are you enjoying playing in midfield? Are you enjoying your start for Yeovil?

GO: Yes, it's been good. Obviously I've had a bit of time out and I'm just starting to find my feet. So I probably need another two or three games and then hopefully I can get back to my top form. I feel that in the last couple of games I am starting to get back to what I used to have before. Obviously everything takes time but I'm sure that if I keep playing week-in, week-out then my performances will get better and better.
