Dude, The DVD is Bedazzled I think. Worth a look. Liz on top

The only thing she'd look good on top of would be my dick :P

Onto football matters, was chatting with a m8 in the pub today and he has it on good authority that Martin O'Neil has been approached to take over in the summer. Well until then we'll just have to wait and see.

Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

O'Neil is not the appointment to take us forward imho.

Oh dear. What's the source for your mate's sensational scoop. He doesn't fit any of the criteria the owners have laid down.
Cheers,
Ray

Goal.com are already spouting their usual brand of 'news' claiming Owen Coyle is favourite.

that would be awesome, redman.

martin o'neill has been my first choice for over a decade.  But I gave up mentioning him, because it seemed liverpool had no interest in him.

martin always excels, no matter where he goes.

In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

He plays boring football and what has he ever won apart from 2 Scottish league titles with Celtic? He Is'nt the man to turn Liverpool around.. the more I think about it, Kenny Dalglish should get the job full time not just untill the end of the season, well lets see how the next few months go, but i dont think O'Neil or Coyle will do whats needed here!

I agree with most on O'Neil, hes not the man to transform Liverpool. He deserves a shot at a big club but I hope its not Liverpool.

This is LFC, theres no reason we shouldnt be able to attract a manager who can make us competitive whilst also adopting a decent style of football. O'Neil doesnt play good football.

do you follow football at all?

here's a recap.

from wikipedia:

Wycombe Wanderers
Martin O'Neill became manager at Wycombe at the beginning of the 1990–91 season. In the following season he led Wycombe to 2nd place in the Conference, losing out to Colchester United only on goal difference. The following season, he took Wycombe into the Football League for the very first time. In the 1993–94 season, he took Wycombe to a second successive promotion via the Division 3 playoffs and a 4–2 win over Preston North End took them up into Division 2.[4] He left the club in 1995 to become manager at Norwich City.

Leicester City
He joined Leicester City immediately after leaving Norwich. They won the Football League Cup under O'Neill in 1997 and 2000, as well as reaching the 1999 final of the competition. They finished ninth in 1997, tenth in 1998 and 1999, and eighth in 2000. The two League Cup triumphs saw them qualify for the UEFA Cup each time.

During his time at Leicester, O'Neill held talks to become manager of Leeds United but declined the job after thousands of supporters held up placards saying "Don't go Martin!" in an effort to make him stay.

Celtic
O'Neill left Leicester on 1 June 2000, taking over from the team of John Barnes and Kenny Dalglish to become manager of Celtic. O'Neill's first Old Firm game ended in a 6–2 victory for Celtic over Rangers. The following Old Firm game at Ibrox saw Celtic fall 5-1. In that first season O'Neill's Celtic won the domestic treble, the first time the club had done so since 1969. He was the first Celtic manager to take the team into the revamped Champions League (a feat he managed three times). He guided Celtic to the 2003 UEFA Cup Final in Seville, which Celtic lost 3–2 in extra time, to a Porto side coached by José Mourinho. In his five seasons at Celtic Park, O'Neill won three League titles, three Scottish Cups, and a League Cup. He also oversaw a record 7 consecutive victories in Old Firm derbies, and in season 2003–04 Celtic created a British record of 25 consecutive victories.[citation needed] During this time, O'Neill's name was linked with a number of high-profile jobs in England.[citation needed]

On 25 May 2005, Celtic announced that O'Neill was resigning as manager at the end of the 2004/05 season to care for his wife Geraldine, who had lymphoma.

O'Neill's last competitive game in charge of Celtic was the Scottish Cup final 1–0 victory over Dundee United on 28 May 2005, decided by an eleventh minute goal by Alan Thompson. Celtic's record under O'Neill, was winning 213, drawing 29 and losing 40, of 282 games played.

Aston Villa

O'Neill was introduced as the Aston Villa manager at a press conference on 4 August 2006. At the press conference he stated "It's absolutely fantastic to be back and with a club such as this. This is a fantastic challenge. I am well aware of the history of this football club. Trying to restore it to its days of former glory seems a long way away – but why not try? It is nearly 25 years since they won the European Cup but that is the dream."[citation needed]

Villa had the longest unbeaten start of any Premier League side in 2006–07 (9 games), not losing a league game until 28 October. Villa suffered a mid-season slump but recovered late in the season, winning their three away games in April, to end the season how it began with a run of 9 unbeaten fixtures. For this O'Neill scooped the Barclays Manager of the Month for April.[citation needed] Villa's final points tally was 50, an improvement of 8 over the previous season and finished 11th, 5 places higher than the previous season.[citation needed]

Aston Villa's owner Randy Lerner said that he would not stop O'Neill from leaving Villa if offered the job of England manager,[7] because he respects that it is a very prestigious position.[7] O'Neill later dismissed the reports, calling them "unfair speculation".[8]

Aston Villa just missed out on a UEFA Cup spot on the final day of the 2007–08 season and qualified for the Intertoto Cup by finishing 6th. They scored 71 goals, (their best ever tally in the Premier League and best tally since winning the title in 1981), gained 60 points which was Villa's highest points tally since the 1996–97 season, and were the 3rd highest goalscorers.[citation needed] After 25 games of the 2008–09 season the club were third in the table on 51 points, 2 points above Chelsea on level games and 7 points above Arsenal in 5th place and on course for a place in the Champions League for the first time since 1983. O'Neill then decided to prioritise Champions League qualification above all else, fielding a virtual reserve side for a UEFA Cup game against CSKA Moscow which was subsequently lost.[9] Following this, Villa failed to win any of the next 10 league games and improving form for Arsenal & Chelsea meant that Villa failed to reach the top 4. Villa eventually finished 6th for the second season running with 62 points, 2 more points than they finished with last season.

At the start of the 2009–10 season Villa failed to qualify for the group stage of the newly named Europa League, but continued their progress in the league with impressive wins against teams such as Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool.[citation needed] Villa were on the way to reaching an achievement that had long since not been reached, which was to beat all "top 4" clubs, consisting of Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea. Arsenal defeated Villa 3–0 at Emirates Stadium, and drew home, destroying any hopes Villa had of reaching this achievement.[citation needed]

Once again Villa finished 6th for the 3rd season running, and once again improved their points tally finishing with 64 points; their poor home form (they drew 8 times at home) denied them a chance to qualify for the UEFA Champions League.

Aston Villa reached their first final under Martin O'Neill, and first final in 10 years on 28 February 2010 against Manchester United in the Carling Cup, but lost 2–1.[citation needed]

Following the departure of Rafael Benitez from Liverpool in June 2010, Martin O'Neill was thought to be one of the main candidates for the manager's job at Anfield,[10] Former Fulham boss Roy Hodgson was appointed as Benitez's successor.[11]

On 9 August 2010, Martin O'Neill resigned as manager of Aston Villa with immediate effect.[12] On his departure O'Neill said "I have enjoyed my time at Aston Villa immensely, It's obviously a wrench to be leaving such a magnificent club."[13] O'Neill was reportedly unhappy about the funds available for transfers,[14] but his departure just five days before the start of the new season still came as a shock to the club and its players.[14] Lerner issued a statement two days later saying he and O'Neill "no longer shared a common view as to how to move forward."

so what exactly is it again, that you were on about?

martin o'neill has been a glowing success, and over-performed, at every job he has been in.

european final, fa cup, league cup finals, with lowly clubs like leicester city and celtic.

and three consecutibve 6th placed premiership finishes with villa.

what exactly is it about being successful that you don't like? 

I guess you'd prefer owen coyle or some new bloke who's won a dozen consecutive games in Azherbijan ligo uno. 
In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.
