I don't get the ' it means fuck all' talk. Surely going into the first game after a run of defeats will hit confidence rather than a run of wins regardless of pre season friendly or not.
Obviously itd be good to win some games if only to avoid all the “debate” of the last few weeks.
But the point is that these games aren’t for points and particularly this year aren’t likely to be smooth as we’ve got a new coach following on from a poor season.
There’s no problem with people saying this or that (or both
) wasn’t good but the hysteria of some is only counter productive.
A season is exactly that. There is scope to improve throughout it and again, especially this season I assumed that it was fairly widely accepted that the most important thing was that by the end of it we’re in position to move towards where we want to be.
At the moment there seems to be wide panic that we’re not immediately better than we were last year and that is ridiculous.
