How do you follow up an 8-0 victory? With great difficulty. Unfortunately, the nature of the modern football fan is all about the now, and there won't be many heading to the south coast for this game who won't be demanding another convincing win. Managing that level of expectancy and also drumming into the players that they shouldn't get complacent will possibly a far more difficult...
