Hmm, interesting if true.

Although, I can't see why he wouldn't wait until the end of the season. If they won the cup his stock would be higher.

That's if it's true of course.

Alan Harper: "I made my debut at Goodison against Stoke and was standing in the tunnel waiting to go onto the pitch. Z cars started playing on the PA and I heard the crowd roar. If I could bottle a moment and save it forever, then that would be it.

Interesting if true. If O'Neill is requesting more money, and Lerner can't afford to give it, then a new boss would have to come in and do a Moyes-esque type of job in the transfer market. Sell the current playing staff for big bucks and buy quality on the cheap. Either way, it could mean that Villa become one less team to compete at the higher end of the league... not that it necessarily will though.

Heard the story about money on The Sunday Supplement about a month ago. Reports then were that Lerner had said there would be no money in the summer. So there could be some truth in that part of the story.

The club have now come out and denied he has left though.

Does this also mean that not even the magical Randy Lerner will fund his team to the extent Everton supporters are hoping a new owner would?
I didn't even remember I had a signature.

I love Sky's qualitative reporting:

"O'Neill spent heavily last summer in bringing in the likes of James Milner (12million), Stephen Warnock (7m), Richard Dunne (6m), Fabian Delph (6m) James Collins (5m) and Habib Beye (3m)."

Wasn't Milner bought in 2006?  Surely, they mean Steward Downing.

FA cup semi coming up, heavy defeat to chelsea, confidence down, Carew possibly out for a while, now rumours of unrest, possibly got a good chance to beat them?

Wish we had 40 million in one window. Yet he wants more to get further ahead of a team that will spend half of that? Moyes and his scouts must be quite good.

Just listening to the 606 podcast and they reckon O Neils had a net spend of £88m over the last 4 years.

Villa have been one of the Europe's top spenders over the past couple of seasons.  A lot of money spent on a lot of mediocrity.

I really don't know how the Mirror can get away with publishing such audacious but baseless info about O'Neill leaving.

I think Villa must have spent more money than us in the last few years and brought in the likes of Milner, Ashley Young, Stewart Downing and Reo Coker for a lot of money. O Neill has had mixed results with players and I do wonder what Moyes would have done if he had a good transfer budget.

Interesting thought about Randy Lerner cutting back at Villa, I knew he wasn't an Abramovich type figure willing to waste £100m in one transfer window but he has always given O'Neill a good transfer budget.
