For the first time in many years Gary Breen has been enjoying taking a break, whilst others are travelling around europe in search of international glory with their national sides.
Breen, signed from Sunderland just prior to the arrival of former Ireland boss Mick McCarthy took the decision to retire form international duty this year and concentrate on club football.
A move that can only benefit Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The consistent nature of the partnership of Breen and captain Jody Craddock at the heart of the Wolves back four was confirmed by the release of the latest Actim statistics, with both ranking inside the top 50 Championship players.
And for Breen, consistency is the key to success in the current Wanderers campaign.
'It's the teams that can find consistency that will do well.' he said earlier this week.
'I've settled into the role at the back partnering Jody but we need the likes of Rob (Edwards) and Clydey to be play their part too. We need to be aiming for clean sheets.'
With Matt Murray behind them, currently ranked as the Championship's top 'keeper, there is now a better chance of that happening, than can be said of the last 3 season's.
There is certainly more confidence on the terraces when his name is in evidence on the teamsheet.
If Wolves are to continue where they have started this season, these three players could well be the bedrock that the campaign is built on.
If all 3 maintain their current form, teams will certainly find it a different proposition scoring against Wolves, than it was last year.
