I know my game pretty well - if I win I know what I did well, and if I lose, I know what I could have done better or differently. My problem is not strategy / tactics / technique, but rather fitness, footwork, and quality of execution - lack of all of these!
I agree. And since most of the time our opponents are close to our own level... it's not like they are so much better, so why dispense with the advice?
It's like golfing, you shank a shot, and your buddy with an 23 handicap is giving you advice.... dude... you suck just as much as I do! I don't think I need advice from someone who can barely break 100!
