What was I saying? If you lose a pre-season friendly, you just wait for the boss to say it doesn’t matter because these games are all about fitness, not the results.
Since I have not read a match report, that is the only positive thought I can muster on hearing of our 1-0 defeat at mighty Scunthorpe, and I don’t even know yet whether Roy Keane has said it, or something like it. Feel free to fill me in on the details.
But it has not stopped me making my arrangements to be in my seat in the East Stand for the opening game proper, home to Spurs on Aug 11. Thanks to Ryanair and an understanding wife, the trip is fixed.
Roll on the Premiership. I think.
