I mean, it's pragmatic. I appreciate a good counter attacking set up and a solid defence but it's not likely to get you bragging to your mates about how we play the best football outside the top flight.
I like Gary, he was one of favourite under-rated players and he has an honesty about him that is really endearing as a fan of hard work. He's no doubt learned a lot this year, and adapting the formation late in the season has shown some tactical awareness and growth. Give him time, this is the first real squad of players he's ever had at his disposal and there's no doubt a lot for him to get his head around.
Play-offs was an achievement in itself, but the true test should be next season. We cannot be so one dimensional again and recruitment has to be spot on. We need a lot of sprucing,
