Top Four Not An Impossible Dream

Top Four Not An Impossible Dream

Martin O'Neill says that it is possible for other clubs to break into the top four despite the near stranglehold the current big boys Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal have on the league. Bloody hell, I hope so, the league is becoming so boring, as are the cup competitions! Football is killing itself with predictability at the moment with only Everton being able to get a look in with the top four during the last three seasons.

O'Neill told the Daily Mail: 'Look, it can be done. It's not impossible. If we had that attitude, we might as well all give up. You have to think it out, though. Everton broke the mould one season, but didn't sustain it, possibly because their squad was not big enough. I think Tottenham - forget the result last week - have put together a really decent squad. They so nearly got there last season. They went into their last game with a chance.'

'The point you're asking me is: can it be done on a consistent basis? But for us here, we need to do it once and then make sure we blooming do it again. We might have to box clever, be a wee bit cute about it. So might everyone else. Everton, Tottenham, Bolton, Portsmouth - we are all trying like mad. And it will happen.'

'This year? I don't know, but I believe one day soon.'

COME ON VILLA!

Unfortunately with the likes of Liverpool also become a rich man's fad, with pots of gold to spend it will become increasingly difficult for anyone. I guess he means by being a bit cute is that somebody will do a hit on Arsene Wenger, as he is the only person capable of keeping us up there with our limited budget.

What's more Likely, I think, is that we'll be talking about a 'top-6' again - six teams (Villa included) who'll be going hammer and tongues.

Southaman is there no one on your own site with literary skills to compete with you? You are a very intelligent kinda child. That is why you are on the site of the worlds greatest football club. Thank you for the entertainment. Now go and ask your parent if you are allowed to send another message. To other users, see what happens when schools are snowed off for the day ...... they come on here amusing the adults.

I find it rather ironic that he is concerned about catching whatever is making the_lergy "talk such pap". What is the term about locking the stable door after the horse has bolted, and why is it so relevent?

Southaman, if you want banning from the whole network, keep posting here. The idea of the article comments is not to be a total knob and to just abuse other members. Grow up or feck orf, either way will suit me.

Good one voth! When refs start playing fair with their choices of penalties at manure and other favoured places, we might stand a chance. We have to start converting some of the super chances we have been making. Anything is possible. UTV.
