    Default short patience span

    Hi,

    regarding the sentence below, what does the expression " " mean?

    A constant in our discussions about young players was whether they could handle the demands of the Old Trafford crowd and the short patience span of the media.

    Thanks

    Default Re: short patience span

    Whether they would be able to cope with the pressures of the demands of the fans and the way the media change from liking them one day to attacking them the next
