Randy Says Martin O'Neill Is For Keeps

Randy Says Martin O'Neill Is For Keeps

Well, well, Randy Lerner has been a busy man in the press recently!

The last quotes suggest he sees Martin O'Neill as our long term manager and says he can see no reason why the manager would need to move on.

The Villa owner told the News of the World:

'Can he realise his ambitions here? Yes. We must create a situation where he doesn't feel the need to look elsewhere.'

And the People are quoting him also after links to the England job and the Manchester United job when Sir Alex Chewalot moves on:

'He is in demand, but I expect Martin to be with Villa and I don't see beyond that expectation. I don't think about speculation with other clubs, I think about him with Villa. He is an ambitious man, but that's what you want.'

He also says that players like Ashley Young picking up the PFA Young Player of the Year award shows Villa are moving forward adding:

'Individual awards are stepping stones to team accolades and part of the slowly, slowly philosophy we are trying to build.'

'Next season we just want to try to come back stronger.'

Words are easy. We'll see if he feels the same should we finish in the bottom 8 next season which is highly possible if we dont stregthen.

deano, that just about sums up the apathy of a section of Villa fans (I use that term loosely) that drag us down. Most reasonable sane peole are looking up, but you are looking down. Life is simple. Always look up to see how far you have to go. Don't look back to see how far you have come. We are chasing top 4, you are looking at Stoke.

nope, his point is valid, there is no such thing as a job for life in football and I would bet that isn't what Randy meant anyway. He will give him a fair crack of the whip though. You just don't seem to see that if a fan has a different opinion to yours that it doesn't make them less of a fan. As I've said before my good man, get some insurance because if you fall off that high horse, the damage would be awful! :o))
