Harry Kewell is loving life as Oldham Athletic manager and warning onlookers that his team are just getting warmed up.
Oldham have claimed a huge series of scalps so far, knocking off Championship clubs in friendlies, Brighton's U/21s in the EFL Trophy, and Forest Green and Carlisle United in the League Cup.
It's one of the best starts by any new coach in the English league system this year and it's rocketed Kewell into the spotlight before his League Two debut this weekend.
Not that the former Liverpool star can't handle the pressure, of course.
"We're excited about the first game of the season of course, but I don't think you can judge a team on the first six games of the season," he told the Oldham News.
"Anything can happen, it can be a free-for-all, but I'm really looking forward to it. I don't mind pressure, I've lived with it my whole life as a player and a coach.
"If you're not under pressure, that means you're comfortable, you get lazy, you get soft.
"I've put pressure on the players every day in training, and they're used to that, so when they go out there tomorrow they'll be ready for it.
"It's important my team knows what I want them to get out of the game.
"It takes time for players to gel and this is a new team, it's still early days.Don't judge a book by its cover yet. It takes time to read a story and we're only on the first few chapters.
"We're prepared though, we know what's going to happen, and we're ready for what Leyton Orient are going to bring and what the season will bring.
"The start of a new league season is always exciting, and anything can happen."
Kewell has recruited a whopping 13 new players so far, but the only Aussie is former Adelaide United striker George Blackwood.
"Bringing quality players like George into the fold will put pressure on the other members of the squad," added Kewell.
"They now know that they've got to step up week in, week out, otherwise there's going to be someone there ready to take their position.
"Ideally as a manager you always want two quality players to cover every position because there is always someone there then to take their chance."
