Pre season friendlies mean absolutely nothing, I remember us having a good pre season a few years back, only to lose 1-3 at home to wham on the opening day of the season and if I remember correctly the Invincibles had a shit pre season!Pre-season appears to going very well. Koscielny isn't being missed at all. The team have played some good football and been quick in the attack. Willock, Sako and Nketieh have performed well. Jenkinson has shown that he will always put a shift in and work hard for the team. In the performances I've seen from him, he hasn't let the team down in the way Ozil, Xhaka, Monreal, Kolasinac and Mustafi have done over the last season
Friendlies have no comparison to competitive games, they arr basically non-contact games!
As for Torreira becoming acclimatised to the plge? he got steadily worse as the season progressed, to the point where only mustafi and ozil were worse!
As for Guendozi? I’ve seen nothing to indicate that he might have a big season ahead, as brain dead a footballer as I’ve ever seen!
