This is what I thought.
Remember at the time that many (not just SAFC fans but in the press) thought that Robson was past his sell by date.
Although he steadied the ship and didn't really make an impact until he had been there for a couple of seasons, the Mags could tell progress was being made.
If O'Neill had half the impact I'd be delighted.
