Martin O'Neill says patience might well prove to the key this summer as he looks to strengthen the squad with quality, not just quantity. In an interview on the official site he explained it will take time but he knows who he wants and promises they'll do things as quickly as they can. Explaining, 'But the people we want to try and improve this club are players you can almost automatically assume are key players at other football clubs. These are people it might be difficult to prise out of their current clubs.' He also says he knows the squad has to be improved but 'it's a fact that improving the squad gets harder as you progress. We've just finished sixth in the Premier League and I think the supporters will agree that we have progressed over the last two years. To improve on what we now have means bringing in even more quality and the competition for quality players can be fierce.' Full article: O'Neill Knows Who He Wants At Villa
