O'Neill, Brian Just bumped into Brian taking his spaniel for walk along the old railway line around Bolton in Harrogate. He lives here now as his daughter's are all here. He had a stroke a few years ago but he is doing well.

O'Neill, Brian A few players who you could say werel oved by Burnley fans. Two or three come to mind and Brian O'Neill is certainly one of them. Best wishes Brian.

O'Neill, Brian Just to say, does he think of his trips to Jersey in the 70s?


O'Neill, Brian It was back around 76 or 77. Brian was our manager at Bideford in North Devon. It was a freezing Saturday and we were losing 1-0 at half time. During the break he sent the bucket man to the bar for a bottle of whisky which he put in all our cups of tea! He worked we won the match 2-1! Great memories


O'Neill, Brian Top player. Only man who could drive a Triumph Stag convertible stood up and waving his fist at other motorists going up Manchester Road.


O'Neill, Brian Great memories of watching the games. Going to Leicester races with Jane to watch Mick and Brian's horse Cathy Jane race. Watching Tony Bennet with Brian and the team. Laughing hysterically at Mick S trying to recite 'I'm a pheasant pluckers daughter' . We were the fore runners of the WAGS! Unfortunately our romance did not last. Brian was great fun as were most of the Saints team. They played hard for a lot lot less than today's players . My grandchildren find it hilarious when I tell them 'I was a Wag before Wags were invented' !
