Martin O'Neill Has Written To Santa!

Martin O'Neill Has Written To Santa!

Martin O'Neill says that Randy Lerner will soon be concentrating 100% on Villa as the NFL season comes to an end and Randy's other team, the Cleveland Browns have failed to qualify for the end of season play offs for the Super Bowl.

O'Neill said: 'I spoke with Randy Lerner when he was over here last week. There is nothing to report that you wouldn't already know. He's keen to do well and for the football club - and I think he will. At this moment, he is doing a lot of commuting but the American football season will soon be over, certainly for the teams not involved in the play-offs, and Cleveland are not going to make those.

'He will then be able to devote a lot of time over here and that's his intention.'

O'Neill added: 'I haven't handed Randy Lerner a wish list. Santa Claus has got my first list and then I'll think about the new year after that.'

Quality quote, just how much of a star is Martin O'Neill?! Just great after the last managers dour mutterings to have someone with a sense of humour.

Routledge and Defoe please. Followed by Bridge and Matt Taylor. Milner if possible and Thompson of Celtic -...loads of experience and never should've let him go.

Anybody who can add and improve the team/squad will do for me. I'm not fussy or demanding.
