Warnock - O'Neill Should Be Next England Boss!

Warnock - O'Neill Should Be Next England Boss!

Neil Warnock has called for Villa boss Martin O'Neill to be the next England boss!

The Irishman, who was close before only to be rejected following an interview, is perfect according to the Crystal Palace boss.

After the 2-2 draw v Villa yesterday, Warnock said:

'I hope Martin O'Neill is the next manager of England because he has done brilliantly for English football. We should all be proud of him. It's not easy to buy the English footballers - he's giving them all games at the top level and they are all blossoming.'

And on Villa game, he added on the Palace official site: 'The team Martin O'Neill put out was a fabulous compliment to us. We weren't far away. I can't explain how proud I am. That's what makes it so sad. It was a fantastic game. Villa have had to roll their sleeves up today to stay in this cup.'

Not so sure on this, however if Fabio Capello did choose to leave after this world cup (if he wins it, what is the point of sticking around, there is nothing else to achieve?!) then MON would bound to be a name in the frame again but would he - after being snubbed once - be interested?

I must admit, I do think that is the only missing bit to his career, an International job, so who knows, it is - as we've been told very reliably by Jimmy Greaves - a funny old game!

What do you think, could you really see a proud Irishman leading out the England team?!

I loved O'Neills answer yesterday when asked about his strong team selection. He said "because its the FA Cup" and looke dpuzzled why he was asked this. Its refreshing to see someone treat the competition like it should be treated unlike Wenger and co. Big fan of Monny

Appy Arry said the same thing, and scorned Bolton for not thinking the same way. Although I can understand Bolton making PL survival priority! But to get back to the question, yes, I can easilly imagine MON as England boss. And I think he would do a great job. But not at the moment. He is happy at Villa, has a great chairman behind him in Mr Lerner, he is successful, everyone is praising him, Villa are all the time improving... so why would he want to risk losing that for the hottest and least enviable job in football? ...... only the money can tempt anyone in Martins position to take the England job, and I really don't think he is interested in more money, he has enough and is happy where he is!

Harry might be a better bet at International level IMO, but with his 'baggage' that won't happen. Cappello is doing a great job anyway.
