It's been a very pleasing summer for me. We've bolstered areas that needed it and brought some real quality that should be more than capable of getting us out of this league at the first attempt (hopefully out the top end this time). Results have been pleasing, and we've been the better side in every game. The Middlesbrough was disappointing, but I wasn't expecting much against a side that will be expecting to challenge at the top end of the Championship this year. Chris Maguire has been impressive and selection should give me headaches throughout the season.
