Manchester United have won the Premiership title but Darren Fletcher reckons it's not enough: the Reds should defend their crown next season.
Though he's not exactly a dominant figure, Fletcher expects United to dominate again after winning the league for the first time in four years.
We looked at the pre-season predictions for this year and a lot of people had us down to finish fourth,' he said.
'You don't take a lot of notice but you do look at these things, so it is nice to prove them wrong.
'We need to come back next season to defend our title and show it was not a one-off. We want to put a run of championships together.'
'I would have liked to be in the team more often but I don't think I have let anyone down when I have been called upon and my consistency levels have been quite high.'
That's true and you often heard me praising him this season. He was very calm about sitting on the bench but he had his reasons.
'You don't feel so bad being left out when the team is winning. It would be much more disappointing if we were losing and I still wasn't getting in,' explained Fletcher.
'There is talk of a few more additions this summer, which is part of being at a big club like this.
'I know Manchester United is a special place and I hope to be around for a few more years yet.'
Another dominant era, with Abramovich around? Highly unlikely, I must say - though I'd be delighted to relive the '90-s of course.
