Our players all have to spend time building up stamina and refining their skills in the preseason training. As supporters it is equally important that we polish our own skills and knowledge whether as forum contributors or just observers. In order to do so this simple multiple choice test, from a managers perspective, will help you to get in shape. Follow the link at the end to check your scores and find your rating.

a) it was 50-50
