Martin O’Neill – the Nearly Man

I’m starting to believe he is the real nearly man of football management. His timing has always been slightly off. Fergie said something interesting today. ‘He’ll do a good job, if thats the job he’s going for.’ I think he meant O’Neill really should be on a grander level. Yet, of the big clubs, only Chelsea and Liverpool have been higher and firing. O’Neill has been linked to both these clubs (he was also  interviewed for the Newcastle job but was bizarrely turned down by Freddie Shepherd).

O’Neill is 59, This could be his last big job. He’s started out well but Sunderland are a poor squad. Its really a shame he might never get a shot a a top job. With his track record,  he really should have been at a big club by now.
