Jamie Redknapp uses the example of youth to underline his belief that the club is in good health.
Youth has certainly had it's chance this season with Stephen Kelly, Dean Marney, John Jackson and Rohan Ricketts all making Premiership debuts while goalkeeper Rob Burch, Lee Barnard and Mark Yeates have all been on the bench - all but Ricketts a product of our Academy.
With the likes of Phil Ifil, just 17 and Jamie O'Hara making an impression in the reserves, the future looks safe.
Club captain Jamie pondered: "Phil Ifil, Yeatesy, Jacko's a lovely footballer, great left foot - it's always great to bring the young players through.
"Dean Marney made his full debut at Old Trafford. It's never easy. I said to him 'it will only get easier from here' and I was really pleased for him.
"The club is in a healthy position."
