  1. Not really important at all. Liverpool tend to draw quite a few of the pre-season games, especially the early ones, while the players get back into the swing of things again. Mostly out of pre-season games I hope for a lot of experience for the younger players, no injuries, letting the new players get acquainted with everything, and letting the old players warm up for the upcoming season. Winning is always a good thing, and does increase team moral, so while it’s a very good thing…it doesn’t really mean much if we don’t. And with all the substitutions that happen in pre-season games, all the non first team players getting games, you really can’t judge pre-season games much at all for the rest of the season.
