Gary O’Neil Club Career
- Despite having been born in Beckenham, London, O’Neil spent his childhood in Downham. The first time O’Neil played for Portsmouth was on January 29, 2000, when he was 16 years old and the team was playing Barnsley at home in the First Division.
- However, Tony Pulis chose to keep him out of the spotlight for the remainder of the season. In the next season, both Pulis and Steve Claridge, who succeeded him as manager, used O’Neil rarely. However, Graham Rix, Portsmouth’s third manager of a dismal season, named O’Neil a starter for the final five matches of the season.
- On the 31st of August in 2007, O’Neil signed a contract with Middlesbrough for an amount that has not been released but is approximated to be around £5 million. It was reported in May 2008 that O’Neil and his family had been unsuccessful in their attempt to settle down on Teesside, and as a result, it was speculated that O’Neil could consider leaving Middlesbrough.
- It was on October 29th, during Middlesbrough’s victory over Manchester City by a score of 2-0 that O’Neil scored his first goal for Middlesbrough during the 2008–2009 season.
- O’Neil successfully completed his transfer to West Ham United on the 25th of January, 2011, signing a contract that was for a period of 2+1⁄2 years and a sum that was not disclosed. He made his debut in the second leg of the League Cup semi-final match against Birmingham City, coming on as a substitute for Luis Boa Morte in the 83rd minute of the match.
- O’Neil made his debut for the Hammers in the Premier League on February 6, 2011, against Birmingham City. The match was played at Upton Park, where the Hammers incurred a loss of 1-0. O’Neil played the whole 90 minutes of the match.
- On the seventh of August in 2013, O’Neil signed a one-year contract with Queens Park Rangers, reuniting with his former boss Harry Redknapp.
- The contract was for the title of Championship player. On the 11th of January 2014, he scored his first goal for the club, which was a victory over Ipswich Town by a score of 3–1.
- On June 9, 2016, O’Neil signed a deal with Bristol City, a team that competes in the Championship, for a period of two years beginning on July 1, 2016. When Bristol City was defeated by Reading by a score of 2–1, he scored his first goal for the club on November 26, 2016.
- Following a successful trial period at the University of Bolton Stadium, he successfully completed a move to Bolton Wanderers on August 3, 2018, on an initial short-term contract that would last until January 2019.
- His first game for Bolton came the day after he signed with the club, and it was a victory over West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns. He came on as a replacement for Luke Murphy, who was also making his debut, in the second half of the match.
- In August of 2020, O’Neil was given the position of assistant manager for Liverpool’s under-23 squad, working under the direction of Barry Lewtas.
- On February 23, 2021, O’Neil became the senior first team coach for Bournemouth. This was in response to the appointment of Jonathan Woodgate as the manager of AFC Bournemouth, a club that competes in the Championship Division, until the conclusion of the 2020–21 season.
- Following Woodgate’s resignation at the conclusion of the season, he continued to work for the club. He was a member of the coaching team that was responsible for the club’s promotion to the Premier League in 2021–22, which was under the direction of new manager Scott Parker.
- Due to the fact that Parker was fired from his position, Bournemouth appointed O’Neil as the caretaker charge on the 30th of August, 2022.
- After taking charge of the team for the first time the following day, in a match against Wolverhampton Wanderers that ended in a scoreless tie, he went on to win his first game for the club in the following match, which was a 3–2 victory over Nottingham Forest on September 3.
- O’Neil was given the position of head coach of Wolverhampton Wanderers, a team in the Premier League, on August 9, 2023. He was given a three-year contract to take over for Julen Lopetegui, who had resigned owing to disagreements with the board of directors.
- Since Kenny Jackett left the club in 2016, he became the first manager to be born in England to come to the position. In his first game, which took place four days later, the side was defeated by Manchester United by a solitary goal on the road.
- Wolves submitted a penalty request, but it was denied in the extra time of the match. Jon Moss, who is the manager of the referees, expressed his regret to O’Neil and stated that the call was incorrect.
- O’Neil became only the second English coach to see his team defeat Manchester City during the Pep Guardiola era when Wolves became the first team in the 2023–24 Premier League to defeat the reigning champions Manchester City on September 30, 2023. With this victory, Wolves became the first team to defeat Manchester City.
