New ex-players (and managers) thread


Well-Known Member
There probably ends the sad deterioration of a once great manager.

Unfortunately he was unable to truly 'destroy and exit' at his final club. Just a bit meh.

We had his greatest days and boy were they tremendous. He should retire to the TV studios now where he would be a good listen.

I can wish him well again now
Steady now. Destroy and exit? He’s not Steve McClaren

To be fair to O'Neill he easily could have been sacked at Leicester too in the early going. It certainly took some patience from the club (more than the fans showed at the time). He went to a club that is burning through managers at a ridiculous rate.

His last two club appointments have been Sunderland and Forest. Nobody in their right mind would describe those clubs as functional or well run. Would be very hard to succeed at either place.

It's certainly possible he's a completely spent force, or a relic of a previous time...but I think using Forest and Sunderland as the sticks by which to beat him might not be entirely fair.
I hate to speak ill of the great MON, but I think that they're the only clubs that have wanted to hire him says quite a lot though, to be fair.
