Villa To Fly The Union Jack!?
Martin O'Neill looks set to try to emulate the 'buy British' management style employed by former Villa boss John Gregory (now of Queens Park Rangers)
MON said, 'I think we have a good sound base of homegrown players and something I would certainly like to add to in the future. That is not to say I have not been looking abroad to strengthen my squad.'
Adding 'Sometimes I look around the Villa dressing room and see a talented bunch of players. They hang out together and they know each other. I cannot say it is an overriding thought in my head that we could be nurturing the future of England football at Villa but it would be great if they could make the club a big power and to make themselves even better players would be fantastic.'
Must admit, although it would be nice to have a British team flying the flag, I'd rather see the Villa team winning the league, regardless of nationality!!!
