Derry, Deery And O'Neill!

Derry, Deery And O'Neill!

Had an email this morning from Neil Baker, the leader of the Gretna Mafia (well, Vital Gretna anyway) who saw an article about our very own Martin O'Neill being seen at Derry to watch Derry City hold Paris St Germain to a 0-0 draw. As Neil said 'Shocking, eh?!?'

O'Neill, who was born in Derry, said: 'Derry were great, totally committed, and it's amazing to see that from an Irish side in Europe. Stephen Kenny should be very proud of what he has achieved here already, and the way they are going there are going to be plenty more nights like these here.'

Neil Baker went further and provided some details of Kevin Deery:

Number: 15
Born: 1984
Birthplace: Derry
Position: midfielder.

He finished saying that Kevin: 'Broke into the team at right back several years ago and attracted the attention of numerous English clubs. Capped at U19 level for the Republic, Kevin had moved into the centre of midfield but is equally at home in defence or midfield.'

Why not ;-)

Hmmm, why not indeed.

Thanks to Neil 'the eagle eyed' Baker

Managers never just "watch" football, though. Perhaps he has his eye on someone...

I'd say ooahPaulMcGrath is nearer the mark as MON was born in Derry, but you never do know!

To give O'Neill credit he did help Derry City when it looked like they were going to fold a few years back. I honestly think Deery will cross the Irish Sea in the near future - perhaps January even - so you never know.

Slightly off subject, it was a tremendous result for Derry. Surely no one would have given them much chance against PSG? It sure is a crazy game at times.

Slightly more off subject, is 'Neil Baker' real or a whole group of people - 'the Neil Baker' syndicate perhaps. If he is one man then he is ******* amazing as he is here there and everywhere. Neil Baker for Vital President! I want a photo!

I am just one person - but I would like to add that I prefer the title of Emperor to President! Having thought about Deery, I'm starting to think a top-six Championship club will be his move.

Well Emperor Baker sir, that would be Villa then wouldn't it? I think you'll find we're 5th at present.

Godsvilla - top-six in the Championship, not the Premiership!
