Of course it's good news to have Ossie back. To suggest otherwise is just daft.
While the midfield looks strong at the moment, people forget that we've only got those 5 midfielders. With Ossie coming back it at least gives us the opportunity to change things in games.
He'll be on the bench to begin with in the league, but he should be ok as a sub as coming on with fresh legs will reduce some of the physical disadvantages that he has when he starts games.
