Not really. Kept us up. The problems still remain though. If the summer intake doesn't gel. We'll be deeper into the mire than last year.

There's a team in the making. Lacks experience and a battle hardened mentality. Retaining the likes of O'Shea is the key.

He barely played and has gone.


Not just the team that matters. It's the entire backroom of the club as well. From the owner, the CEO downwards. Wenger and Ferguson both had the support of an infrastructure during their years of success. Focus has to be off the pitch as well as on.

Easy to rubbish O'Shea and his failures in later years. Worth remembering the guy has won 5 premier titles, 1 FA Cup, 2 League Cups and the Champions League. Also played for his country 118 times. You cannot buy that experience. Let alone have the character to be a model professional for the academy players. Who better to be a role model for up and coming defenders. Or to guide Moore if he is to become Captain next season. What a great mentor to have. Take some weight off Gomes. Who'll have his hands full.

Also worth mentioning he's been in 5 relegation fights in a row, losing two of them. Who better to be a role model for up and coming defenders? Someone who is playing regularly and near the top of their game, not someone who's almost twice their age and slower than a cart horse.

If you want characters, buy ones that can play regularly, or hire them on coaching / support staff wages.

Think the Wally Downes thing back in 2005/2006 thing might've suggested otherwise

Familly - The 106 teams players and wives and girlfriends all being so friendly, if nothing else it gives the menfolk one less thing to worry about.
