'If It's Football, It's Vital'

If You Could Ask The Manager?

With an apparent rush for tickets and a renewed optimism following the popular arrival of Martin O'Neill, it seems some fans want to know more about our new manager.

The last poll on Vital we asked if Martin O'Neill was the right man for the job, 97% said 'Stupid question, of-course he is!', 2% were unsure and just 1% said no!

The fact he has arrived to such a fanfare got me thinking (dangerous I know) and I thought I'd pose the question for you to answer in the forum and article comments.

If you could ask Martin O'Neill one thing, what would that be?

Predictable, but... "Go on then, what is really happening with the takeover?"
Sheriff Kimbo
What was he drinking when he decided to manage aston villa? What he realistically hopes to achieve at the club over the next 3 seasons? Will he take over at united after he's had enough of the midlands?
Cpt. Mainwaring
with the right input we can be just has big a club as man u on the pitch, we will never compete with them at selling nic nacs, but would we want to, get the right people in and you never know
eltoro
can you see any problems attracting big names bag to VP? people like SWP and Joe Cole at chelsea will probably be warming the bench this year with the players they've bought, are these the sort of names you will look to attract ? We are a massive club, but we need UEFA at least, the best players wont come to a club not in Europe. do you agree that this needs to be a prioity ?
bobbyfett
Mr O'Neill what would you consider your target for this football club this season?
still skeggy

Welcome, we have a large fan base is your plan to fill the stadium by playing elegant football or star power. Also what is the time frame that you expect us to be playing in Europe?
NY Villa
Did you put any mind altering drugs in Dougs chinese last friday and if so, how much cash did you get out of the old fart to start rebuilding your new squad?

Did Deadly Doug really try and escape through the bathroom window to try and getting out of paying for Saturday nights meal?

If we can get into uefa just by winning a cup or gettin 2 the final and playin chelsea then we will become a top 6 club as we will attract gd standrd of players with MON, then with those decent player quilfy 4 the champion league and then will be as gd as united jst not with the history. it may take 4 or 5 seasons but it will happen

Have you ever heard of the phrase "sugarbag" and will you ever be using it?
fatloser
is the one year contract at the request of who ever takes over us?
the flying villain
i hope he turns it round for you, fingers crossed he will, i am a long suffering spurs fan so i know what your pain is like! all i can say is keep the faith, 2 years ago we were in the same position, but tke a leaf from our book, it can be done, i would say we are as close to man u, arse, liverpool, chelsea than anyone has got so it can be done. obviously, dont want you to over achieve though!!
elmo85
i agree wiv u tht it can b done elmo. i remeber wen martin jol first tuk charge of spurs and he wud say i want to get this club fightin 4 europe wiv the aston villas and the newcastles. no1 has put us in that chatagory since but in a few years ppl will be talking about us like tht again.

Well if it's good enough for Dennis Mortimer it's good enough for MON..... What's you favourite cheese?
DeanoVilla
And on a more serious note... do you intend to continue the good work done by Villa's youth set up by giving youngsters like Moore, Agbonlahor and Cahill their chance to shine or will you be bringing in more experienced players at the expense of their development?
DeanoVilla
from a iverpool fan - who/what really convinced yu o manage villa. (no offence to villa)
Aamir
Why have you had a 1yr rolling contract, how long do you intend to stay here? ...............What do you feel would need to be achieved this season to consider it successful.................do you like spam?
tylervilla
talking about the urine monster......Did anyone else go to VP on friday night for the O'Neil arrival?.......did anyone else notice that someone had boot the boot into Ellis's roller and there was a big dent in the side?
tylervilla
Whoever did that.... stand up and take a bow!
