"I more or less came from nowhere last season," said Murphy, "I've been thinking about the whole 'second-season syndrome' problem, but I've trained harder than ever to make sure that it doesn't happen to me". To counteract this problem Dave Black suggested to "try concentrating on having a more mediocre first season. "
