Billy O'Neil (played by Phil Barantini) was a fictional footballer on Sky One's television drama Dream Team. He was a striker for Harchester United.

O'Neill signed for Harchester as a free agent after being released by hometown club, Liverpool. He became the bearer of practical jokes during his arrival at the club mainly from team mate Sean Hocknell. However, Billy soon fitted in at Harchester and made a significant contribution to their Premier League survival in 2000 as it was Billy who won the last minute penalty against Tottenham after been brought down by goalkeeper Ian Walker.

Near the end of the 1999 - 00 season, Billy was torn between renewing his contract with Harchester or taking an offer from West Ham United. He had originally planned on staying with Harchester, but West Ham offered a better contract to which O'Neil decided that he could not turn down.
