    Were his Leicester teams as bad to watch? I honestly can't remember.

    I don’t remember tbh, but his Celtic team were decent to watch, and good too. For a man who played most of his football under Clough, it makes it even stranger how he’s turned out.

    John Robertson was apparently a big part of his success, but I think they parted ways around his time at Villa if I’m not mistaken? He was also a Clough man, so maybe that’s when he lost the plot. I think I remember reading that O'Neill wasn't very hands on, and Robertson did a lot of the daily training.

    My brother mentioned an interview with a player saying he did virtually no prep work on the opposition. Maybe he's another manager who works best alongside a certain person, and when that person goes it's never quite the same. Even with us Houllier was at his best alongside Berges, Rafa with Pako.
