Intriguing indeed! I feel bad for hoping West Ham go down, but I do nonetheless. Sorry Hammers.

Also, it's brilliant to think that Steve Sidwell is sitting at home crying in a corner of a room after reading about this. :D

So happy about this, O'Neill done a fantastic job at Villa, Celtic and Leicester and will be great with us :)

The thing I worry about is... West Ham have a few of the ingredients for a O'Neill team, but not all of them. Target man, check. Solid fullbacks, check. Hard working box to boxer, very check. Out and out wingers who work hard up and down the line, with good crossing ability? Not quite. Still, MON is quality if a little lackadaisical. He'll want money, though...

I agree GodCubed. Sidwell's probably rounding up people to play Russian Roulette right now.

Great for Hammers, O' Neill is a class manager who made players such as Barry and Milner

I am VERY pleased about this change. Only rumours and sources at the moment, nothing confirmed yet. But too hard not to get excited if O'Neill can emulate what he did at Villa, Celtic and Leicester

Oh and another thing: if you want him to develop youth, you'll be disappointed. He never plays youth - ever.

Surprised Martin would have went there, No offence hammers. But I think hes the right man to save them if given the funds. Hated him at Celtic because he was a quality manager, Glad he left worst mistake Celtic made getting rid of him.

Mate you were fearing the worst when Grant was in charge, like you now I think we won't get to the final without grant, hes a cup genius!

I was never fearing the worst with Grant in charge, iv never rated him as a manager.
We were favourites to go through with only 1 goal against us and the second leg being at Stan's.

Grant me be a cup "genius", but MON's record against us is ridiculous!!

This is totally out of order. Grant has won 4 of last 7 and only lost 1 in that time. This is a joke. O'Sullivan and Gold you are mugs, Heres hoping you get relegated for this stupidity.
