Stephen Moore column

  This stark contrast puts into context two vital performance points. Getting off to a good start and winning matches is fundamental to winning the division, and the margins between success and failure in top-level sport are so small that it can be difficult to pin-point exactly what needs to be addressed in order to improve performances.However, sometimes this can be a good thing as when you lose matches, nothing is glossed over. All realities and 'home truths' were addressed which provided us as individuals and a squad with real clarity going into the season.Off-season training for us was conducted in small groups, spending only one day a week together as a squad, with the rest of the time focussing individually on our skills, strength and conditioning.Our one-day cricket has been strong for the last few seasons and our goal is to take ourselves once again into the knockout stages of both competitions, where we know if we deliver our skills, we can add silverware to the club's historically great one-day record.Some new recruits both in the playing squad and behind the scenes, together with settling into our new extraordinary stadium 'Emirates Old Trafford' has given everyone a real boost, and there is a tangible sense of expectation in the dressing room.
