The Irish King Will Stay

The Irish King Will Stay

John O'Shea prepares to sign a new, four-and-a-half year contract at Old Trafford, newspaper reports suggest.

The big Irishman, last season's most lethal finisher in the Premiership, is probably more important to our cause than most recognise. And it's not just the old cliche about squad players doing their part though many fans forget this one when contemplating chances.

O'Shea, who is among a number of our players who signed or will sign extensions in these days, can play in every single position. He was tried even as a goalkeeper, against Tottenham and boy he did well! He played centre-forward against Reading and boy, he didn't do very well but tried his best.

So, he can be used anywhere, anytime, with any instructions given. And he's happy to do it. I think in this sense he's probably the most extraordinary player in the Premier League: I know he's a jack of all trades and a master of none but he's aware of that and seems very happy to play for United, no matter what the manager asks from him. It is a rare and admirable quality and he's a real phenomenon: a Premiership footballer who knows exactly what he's worth.

Long may the Irish King stay and flourish here!
