Martin O’Neill is a man that will always have a special place in our hearts.
Certainly, there’s a good case to suggest that he could have stayed longer at the club and earned us more trophies but he went when and why he did and we’ll always respect that.
A true football thinker and a real winner, too, you can’t underestimate what he did for us and has done elsewhere in the game – both as a player and a manager.
Indeed, we’ve been given a reminder of that with this famous clip resurfacing on Twitter this week:
I've just been reminded of the clip in which Martin O'Neill ruins Patrick Viera and Fabio Cannavaro with one question after being talked down to by the pair.

This was always going to get our fans talking once again, then, so let’s take a look at what has been said:

A brilliant man and one that certainly put Vieira and Cannavaro in his place.
He was a legend for us and in the future if he returned we’d surely welcome him back with open arms.
