O'Neill Committed To Villa

O'Neill Committed To Villa

Martin O'Neill has rounded angrily on the press who suggested his quote, 'Let's take things one step at a time' meant he was interested in taking the England job.

To be fair, that is how the quote looked!

But now he has made it clear his commitment is with Villa.

'It is absolute nonsense. I do not even remember saying it, to be perfectly honest. I said something some time ago to the tune that England would qualify and was asked something on the back of that that was completely and utterly hypothetical. It is utterly pointless to talk about it. I am committed to Aston Villa. I cannot end speculation. I have had it for years and years and years, no matter what you say.'

Adding, 'I have a big commitment to Aston Villa. It is as simple as that.'

And on the speculation in the press that he went to New York to meet up with Randy Lerner to talk over a move to England he said what General Charles Krulak told us all last week in the forum, 'It was on Aston Villa business, and Aston Villa business alone. It's absolute nonsense for someone to suggest otherwise. It is complete and utter paper-talk.'

Right, so reading between the lines....... !!!!!!!!!!!!

There you go, MON is the Villa boss and not looking to move elsewhere. Now lets see what he can build here, hopefully with a kick start in January with some decisive transfer action.

He is committed to villa, but that doesn't mean if he was offered the England job that he wouldn't take it... and if he wanted it, like any other previous manager, he'd be crazy not to attempt it. I say another go for big phil.

Site admin, could you contact our Celtic friends to see if this is what O'Neill used to do there, especially around the time he was negotiating with their board, please. It was around the time he signed that agreement with Leeds. I'm sure McClaren now looks to be keeping his job in the short term no matter what the result tonight, unless of course as some predicted a better candidate has arrived

Yet still the speculation will continue. Its almost as boring now as is the Shaun Maloney wants out saga.

He's not sure what he said but he was responding to a hypothetical question,I wonder if that hypothetical question was along the lines of ''Should you be offered the England job''.I wouldn't be getting too excited yet.
