Martin O'Neill has complemented the Villa faithful saying 'Our fans have shown great desire this season'
'They are coming out in big, big numbers at home to support. The away contingent is always fantastic. Last season in particular was splendid. We want to give our supporters something to cheer about this season. Unfortunately, it hasn't always been the case. The first half of the Bolton game is still fresh in my memory from that point of view, and on a lesser scale the first half against Derby.'
He also says that the claret and blue army realise there is 'potential for something exciting to happen here' and feels we are moving in the 'right direction'.
All very positive and then you read in the paper that Martin O'Neill is jetting off to meet with Randy Lerner due to the international break. All makes sense until you realise the suggestion is he might be talking to Randy about the possible vacant England job. The General said in his forum thread: 'The week off will give MON and Randy some time together....which is always good. They get along very well which is good for Villa.' Doesn't sound quite like a manager looking for an exit does it?
One thing does look sure, unless Israel pull off a miracle against Russia on Saturday, is that the FA will soon be looking for a new manager, lets hope that saga doesn't rumble on and lets hope that our boss is clear with his intentions once the job is vacant. A quick 'no thank you' will suffice I'm sure! Surely he'd be mad to take the poison chalice of the England job when he already has a major challenge in turning our fortunes around.
I know the press and other fans will clamour for him but if I was him I'd not touch it with a barge pole, or any other type of pole for that matter. Oh and for the politically correct, I'm not saying I'm anti pole, although sticks are another matter, bloody hate em.
