It's the first Monny interview of the new season on the official website, and he's aiming to put us all at ease.
Speaking for the first time this new season (obviously discounting the statements about players were weren't bidding for) Martin O'Neill has taken the opportunity to let us know that he has a burning design to add strength, quality and depth to our 'small squad' (copyright overused soundbyte).
He assures us that:
'I am hoping we will be able to add to the squad over the next couple of weeks.'
And being mindful of the losses of Gareth Barry and Martin Laursen, he informs us that:
'There are obvious and immediate replacements that we are looking to bring in.'
Which is nice and that's about it, other than saying:
'We are all looking forward to the season.'
A sentiment some fans don't seem to share if you judge the feeling on the message board.
I'm not sure if this is a new interview actually, sounds exactly the same as what was said at the end of last season, in January, last summer minus the Barry and Laursen comments obviously.
But I think I understand it, he's simply lulling the Top 4 into a false sense of security and 5 minutes before our first competative match of the season we'll be unveiling World Class stars and taking the Premiership by storm.
