O'Neill Breaks Carew Silence

O'Neill Breaks Carew Silence

After the allegations in the newspapers about John Carew breaking club curfew prior to the Ajax match, O'Neill has now commented.

Speaking on the official site, and no doubt taking advantage of Carew's impressive performance today, our manager said simply:

'He has paid the penalty and the incident is forgotten. He has already said it won't happen again. I tend to believe him.

'He said there were a lot of mitigating circumstances and I tend to share that view too.

'He will be reprimanded and fined and I'm sure it won't happen again.'

absolutely...when he's performing on the pitch it's a bit hard not to overlook things like this with such ease.

Soft arse. Would Fergie tolerate this? He is blowing his chance as next Utd. manager acting like way. Buck yer ideas up O'Neill or stay in the slow lane.

Todays goal great, still needs to make sure it doesn't happen again, he can only perform when on the pitch and in the UEFA cup he couldn't make it onto the pitch. Nice gesture for him to pay so much attention to the away fans today and to throw his shirt in the crowd, I'm sure MON has made it clear that sort of behaviour isn't accepted and that is the end of that.

He should really have understood the importance of the ajax game but like lerneravfc says we all make mistakes, might have been a bit harder to forgive if we had lost the game but we did'nt so thats that.
