O'Connor Keen to Take Both the Positives & Negatives from 2016/17 Campaign

32-year-old O'Connor is keen to learn from the previous campaign, but determined not to dwell on the negatives.
Walsall defender James O'Connor has spoken to the local press as he and his teammates continue to make the most of their brief summer break, and has discussed the importance of using last season as an opportunity to learn, taking both the good and the bad from a lengthy campaign.

James, Who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "You look at the season as a whole and there were some positives as well as negatives. It’s important you learn from both. I’ve had seasons that have ended fantastically and some that haven’t ended quite so well.

"At the end of the day you get away and get yourself into a frame of mind to approach the new season as positively as possible and give it the very best again."

The 32-year-old, who made forty appearances last season, went on to discuss how difficult it is to put the previous season behind you, especially if it has been a particularly poor campaign, he said; "You try to switch off. Obviously last season didn’t end on the best of notes. It was tough with ups and downs. There is lots to learn from but first you just try to recharge your batteries, which we’ll be trying to do for a couple of weeks.

"Then it’ll be back into things and preparing for next year, but you never fully switch off really."
