What Do You Think Of O'Neill So Far?

What Do You Think Of O'Neill So Far?

Ashley Young is hoping the Martin O'Neill to England link proves unfounded as he is desperate for the Villa boss to stay.

He told Sky Sports, 'Yeah of course it would be disappointing not to be working with a manager like that. He is a top manager, so hopefully I can still have the opportunity to work with him not just now but for years to come.'

He further explains the lure of O'Neill adding, 'Man-management skills to every individual is spot-on and you cannot ask for any more. He played a part in my move to Villa. I asked people about him and nobody had a bad word to say. If you look at his track record, his career, what he has done, it speaks for itself.'

Maybe this is an opportune time to use the poll suggested some weeks back by Eltoro asking 'How well do you think MON's done so far?'

There's nobody better for this club. We are very lucky to have him. Ask the same question in 3 years time.

We are lucky to have Randy and Co. Not so sure after that.

Would agree with that. Lucky to have Randy and the board, but I'm becoming increasingly convinced MON is holding this club back with his tactical ineptitude and stupidity in the transfer window. He has all the ability of Mark Hughes's left testicle.

We need a winning mentality whereas even if we play poorly, we can still have players who can step up to the plate and get a couple of goals for us and more importantly be more solid at the back. Then we can grind out results. Seems like MON is happy to draw and declare it as a good result. Shocking in the transfer market and he seems burdened with not wanting to waste "THE BILLIONAIRES" money and is too nice when selling our players on for minimal fees just because they will get first team football every week. He really needs 9 points in the next 3 easy games even though 2 are away. Losing patience

What sort of ability has Mark Hughes left testicle then? Actually, scrub that, I don't think I want to know! ;-p

Will repeat this poll after the transfer window and at the end of the season, hopefully in 3 years time Weller77 100% will be fantastic couldn't ask for more with Villa in the Champions League!

Tried to add the option gordonsleftboot but for some reason the admin isn't allowing it, so will try again later.

MON has generated a fantastic team spirit and togetherness we haven't had for years. On field progress has been slower than I would have hoped, but I still have 100% confidence in the Manager to get it right in the long term. The players all appear to want to play for the manager. They are young and hungry, but do need a little more class in certain areas. We have to be realistic though. Look at all the money spent and the pre season hype about Spurs. Yet they are no nearer challenging the top 4 than we are. Money alone will not do the trick (it helps, though). Attitude, remaining positive and commitment of players, staff and supporters is also paramount. It is no coincidence that the atmosphere at Villa home games is a million times better than 18 months ago. The vast majority of the crowd can see the commitment to the cause and that progress is being made (albeit a little slower than hoped). THAT IS DOWN TO THE MANAGER (and an excellent chairman)
