O'Neills first press conference
Says 'it wasn't the right time to have taken the job earlier'
' I would dearly like Roy to join us'
' I don't think there is any other reason to be here than get to the premier league'
' I'm here for 18 months, if we can't get up I'll gladly hand it over to someone else to see if they can try'
'i wasn't aware of the turnover of managers in recent years, you've made me aware of that, that's pretty daunting'
' great to be back here Nottingham has been part of my life'
'the job is to try to get up'
'its great ( sell out at weekend), coming in halfway through the season I've tried to do as much homework as possible, it's exciting'
' I have trained a great enthusiasm for football, I am well aware of the pitfalls of management'
' if you don't feel like doing it, you shouldn't do it. I really want to be successful here because we had extraordinary success ( as a player)'
' don't live in the past. That will be there forever more. But we want to try and carve some sort of niche now'
' I don't think there'd really such a thing as long term projects in the game'
' there seems to be a good spirit among the players and trust that will transmit onto the pitch'
'the target is to get promotion, I really have to try to do that. If I'm unable to do that I will hand over to someone else'
'i didn't realise they'd put the photographs out there of the European cup winning team. If the younger players need extra motivayion, it's right there in front of you'
' when a new manager comes in players immediately step up in training there is a bit of a spark about the place, to the say the training is better, I think would be disparaging to the outgoing manager'
' I think the players are ready to go, we need to be ready for Saturday'
' it looks as if we've got a good spirit, we've got a few problems with injuries and suspensions. We've got to get over that'
