Boro Aim To Shock Toon!

Boro Aim To Shock Toon!

Newcastle may discover today whether they can appoint Glenn Roeder as their permanent manager. But Middlesbrough could get the Toon's number one target.

Martin O’Neill, who was also on the FA’s shortlist, had been Freddy Shepherd’s first choice. But a meeting with the Toon chaitman did not impress the Ulsterman, despite an amazing offer of £8m over four years.

Delays centred around England and the health of O’Neill’s wife. But in the meantime Roeder has lost only four of his 16 matches.

O’Neill, however, is a genuine target for Niall Quinn’s consortium at Sunderland. But that is never going to happen, despite O'Neill being made favourite for the manager's job as you read this.

HOWEVER ... Steve Gibson, the Middlesbrough chairman, is to try and get O’Neill to move from his Buckinghamshire home to ICI City. And with his manager set to be named manager of England, that COULD happen.

Typical makem - see you maybe in 10 years when you have fought your way back from division 2 again. Geordies will never squirm at a bunch of muppets. Yes you may get some more cash , but you will only waste it on 2nd rate players and end up back where your heading - the scrap heap. Toon forever , now go learn to speak properley instead of trying to say sunderland will be man utd in 2 seasons - wake up

Seeing as you mention them aCs, i really think that M O'n is not going anywhere until his wife is over her illness, and if he does go anywhere, it will be to replace Ferguson at ManUtd. Just my opinion mind.
