O'Neill: Unsure And The Unknown

Martin O'Neill has made a few comments today to various reporters about the future of James Milner and Steve Sidwell.

With rumours and conspiracy theories popping up like wildfire about Milner, it seems strange that if such a deal is imminent and all the paranoia about him not playing against Benfica were true that O'Neill would tell Sky Sports News:

'I don't think there's any more news to tell. Naturally almost everyone to a man would want James to stay at the football club but I don't think at this stage I would be in a position to give you a definitive answer.'

Hardly sounds like a done deal to me.

In other outgoing news Steve Sidwell's proposed move to Fulham has definitely hit a snag following Roy Hodgson's managerial transfer to Liverpool.

The Sun are reporting that whilst the 3 million deal has been accepted by Villa, it's unsure if Sparky Marky still wishes the transfer to go ahead.

'The manager who was expected to go there, Martin Jol, has stayed where he is. I don't know if a new manager will make things happen quicker or not,' they quote O'Neill as saying.

Now to be honest I'm not sure if these are old quotes just rehashed to fill a few column inches. Just seems unlikely that Monny who chooses each word he says deliberately would at this stage say 'a new manager' as opposed to 'the new manager'.

Surely the onus is on the potential buyer Man City. We have refused their bid, and until they come up with another one, Milner is still a Villa player! We still have to cope with the uncertainty and get on with it! What worries me more is that nobody is coming in for our under average fringe players that look like they are going to get another seasons wages for doing nothing!

Its pretty crude poker - you need money to get some transfers in soon but have raised the stakes too high and now time is not on your side.
