What's with them? And no, I'm not jumping on bandwagons because we've had a shit start to the season. We have done the same for the last few years now and even though we've had Lescott situations etc. to distract us surely this must be a reason for our shit starts to the season as well?
Why go to places like Australia and play a bunch of part-timers, or America and play teams who, let's be honest, aren't our level? Why don't we start playing some proper teams and properly start testing ourselves? Okay we may win 1, draw 3 and lose 2 or something but at least the players won't get ahead of themselves and start believing their own hype! At least they'd know they were in for a fight come the start of the season.
Need I remind people that the one very good team we did come up against this pre-season we got absolutely shagged. I'm not bothered about the odd game against a lesser team to build confidence but playing a shitload of easy games isn't beneficial. I don't see the point.
I suppose you can say Moyes is a winner and always wants to win but winners don't win all the time, they win when it matters. I wouldn't mind losing pre-season games against good teams if it meant we started the season in much better shape.
