O'Neill To Liverpool + Transfer Talk

O'Neill To Liverpool + Transfer Talk

The press seem determined to see Martin O'Neill leave Villa! Now the FA have disgraced themselves again by buying an Italian for stupid money to manage ENGLAND, I thought speculation of the Villa boss leaving would die but not according to the Sunday Express who claim that Liverpool will target O'Neill if they can't bash Rafa Benitez back into line following several public arguments.

The News of the World and The Observer both say that Villa have returned to FC Porto with a £7million bid for defender Jose Bosingwa. The Portugal international is versatile having played as a right-back (his usual position), winger and defensive midfielder.

According to Tribal Football, Slavia Prague are 'chasing' Patrik Berger. Surely it wouldn't take them much to catch him? Great player, but time for him to go, his fitness has ruined a very fine career. He is out of contract in the summer and it is surely 99.9% certain that Martin O'Neill won't look to extend his stay?

Would MON go to Villa? I get the impression he feels he has a job to finish at Villa Park!

The Liverpool story seems like a bit of lazy journalism to me,just putting 2 and 2 together,I cant see Benitez going and I dont think MoN would leave to manage them.

MON wouldn't go to the pool. Good for us though as it raises the profile of MON which may attract the attention of some players who may wish to sign for us.

The England link I could believe, the Liverpool one I don't think so. We have better owners than them.

Unless MON signs a long contract at villa this speculation will continue. I understand the one year rolling contract was has choice, so it seems we are going to have to live with this speculation.

the guy is loyal even with a rolling contract, he's building summat, instead of walking into club already, I think the attraction of a legacy at villa is too much

I think that above all else MON is a man of his word. He has indicated, in fact clearly stated, on numerous occasions now, that he has a job to do here and intends to see it through.

Boswinga I think is a definite no go. It wouldn't make any sense for him to move here. Actually, I've also read that Manchester nited are keen on him.
