Villa's Mutual Appreciation Society!
Martin O'Neill has responded to the praise heaped on him this week by Villa owner Randy Lerner.
'It's very nice of him to say such things. I get on very well with him and I won't abuse that sort of relationship in any way. But the best way for me not to abuse it is by reciprocating and by winning matches.'
Adding: 'He's been fantastically supportive - every single thing you could ask for he's done - even if we haven't been able to put some of the ideas we've had into practice.'
In other words, watch this space, the Villa are back.
