Martin O'Neill Manager-of-the-month

My mole at the BBC has told me that Martin O'Neill has won the Barclaycard Premiership Manager of the Month award.

Can't 100% guarantee it as I've seen nothing myself but he doesn't usually steer me wrong.

So, well done Martin O'Neill for the storming end to the season - hopefully with two wins to bring us to an end.

(And well done even if this doesn't turn out to be true!!!!!!!!!!)

More cause for celebration if indeed it is proved to be correct. The club as a whole are on a roll right now. All we need is for Randy to be declared 'Owner Of The Year' and we can really pop the champagne.
Looks like a loss on Saturday then.

you're full of optimism aren't you? well done Martin and the Lads.
It's called the curse of the award.
Hoss The Villain
I think you'll find plenty of Managers have broken the curse of late. I think one was Potato Head.
Adam Deuce
Sod the curse of the award we are already cursed as its on TV! Maybe this curse will cancel out the other curse and we might win?
Well done MON, proved the doubters wrong, Aahley Young looks majestic!
its been confirmed
Its All Over FC
When was the last time a Villa manager won this award? Gregory? Just shows the excellent PR job being carried out by the new board of directors, Villa are becoming noticed again! Congratulations to Martin & all the staff & lets get behind them to make Saturday a great occassion for all.
Let the Revolution B
Despite the moaners and groaners, Martin fully deserves this recognition. He's got on with his rebuilding job without a fuss, added quality where possible, and optimism is now very much the name of the game. The first of many Martin, I have absolutely no doubts about that. Now make sure you join the lap of honour tomorrow to ensure that we can all show our appreciation of your efforts. Was it really twelve months ago when David O'Leary attempted to steal the show during the last campaigns lap of dishonour?
I second the comment, when was the last time a Villa manager got the award!!...Well the magic is starting to rub off and come the summer with new quality signings we will be even stronger.John get exercising with the pilates on the ole digits!!, as the site is going to go balistic... the transfer window is even more exciting than the playing season.Oh and we will get the chance to stuff the blues again!I love football and my mighty Villa."You are my Villa, my only Villa, you make me happy when skys are grey, you'll never know just how much I loooovvveeee you....please don't take my Villa away.Laaaa, la, la,laaaaa, la, la, la, la....
Well done big Martin lets have few more months like this one next season.
Superb news, especially as we are starting to get noticed. John Gregory won it last early in the 2001-2 season if I recall correctly.
Congratulations to Martin and may this be the first of many for MON and Aston Villa!!
Andy Gray eat your words.........
Yep. Andy Grey will go on sky on Saturday and say, I told you all Mon is doing a fantastic job at the villa. What a paper hat!
Andy Gray is an absolute moron...
did david o'leary win it when we went on that run a couple os seasons ago, near the end of the season when we were pipped at the post for europe by newcastle, im pretty sure we went about 14 games unbeaten
maybe not 14 actually, but it was a few
no it was john gregory September 2001 and he also won it September 1998. Dion Dublin was the last player to get it in November 1998. the same season dwight yorke won the player of the year for man utd
brian little won it it jan 1995. oh and southgate jan 2000 and paul meson feb 2000. at thats it
This I hope will not be the kiss of death for the game against Sheff Utd, not only will the team of 82 be going on the pitch, MON will be there with his trophy for MOTM. Party atphmosphere just dont need Warnock to**** in the fireworks.
O'Neill said: "I'm delighted to get this award. We've put some good results together over the last few weeks - then again we've had to! "Winning three on the trot away from home was obviously very pleasing and we just need to replicate that sort of form at Villa Park." Jim Hytner, from the Barclays Awards Panel, said: "Martin O'Neill has made a terrific impact in his first season back in the Barclays Premiership. "He's built a team full of young talent that is becoming increasingly hard to beat, no more so than in April. Three successive away wins also demonstrate that his Villa side combines a solid defence with real threat in attack."

home win to celebrate would be good!
