POLL:How important are pre-season results

With the pre-season friendlies underway and two defeats in the Asia Cup behind us our poll today asks just how much importance should be attached to results.

  1. From my experience in several different sports the results mean very little, but you should expect your squad to start coming together as the pre-season progresses. Hopefully, things improve as we move forward.

  2. While it is only a pre season should we not be a little concerned with the age old problem…being up for it , it is both man city and Newcastle pre season and they seemed up to the task , alas again we are not , and I guess you can add wolves to that as they road there luck a bit but found the resolve to win, so again no similarities to us, I hope I’m being overly critical, and trust me hope I’m proved so wrong , but same old west ham same old issues, coyi

    • I agree totally with Andrew – after ‘intensive’ work in Austria/Switzerland and acclimatisation in China we can’t manage a shot on target against a crap team like Newcastle stuffed by City! Look at our rivals at the same pre-season stage, Arsenal beat Fiorentina, Man U beat Inter, Spurs beat Juve, Wolves beat City and we can’t put a dent in Newcastle ffs!!! Await seeing Chelsea stuff Barca!!

  3. Correct me if I’m wrong but I think some of our most successful seasons over the past 30 years or so have followed a very poor series of results in pre-season.

  4. Not. A. Bit.
