O'Shea Pleased, Unlike Us

O'Shea Pleased, Unlike Us

John O'Shea would choose a Premiership medal rather than a regular first-team place. The Irish defender played as a defensive midfielder this season - not to a great effect.

O'Shea won the title with United once but he aims to do it again and stressed that nothing is more important than that.

'It is obviously frustrating when you are not playing week in, week out but that is the case when everyone is fit and you are top of the league. The manager has big decisions to make and when you get your chance you have got to take it.

'Everyone is chomping at the bit to get into the team. In the last couple of seasons we have had vital players missing for months but this season we have coped with everything that has been thrown at us and you can see we are enjoying it.'

Well, I truly hope we won't be forced to play O'Shea week in, week out as a midfielder - I believe our title bid would collapse in that case.

Oh, I should shut up. It's unfair to abuse O'Shea all the time, it's not his fault he's being played out of position. And anyway, he had limited opportunities in the last few weeks and did not make any significant blunder.

I hope he would get his second Premiership title.
