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.

I think you'll find plenty of Managers have broken the curse of late. I think one was Potato Head.

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?

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.

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."
