Graham reckons Laudrupâ€™s instructions about conserving his energy could help him make the most of that opportunity.
â€śThe most pleasing thing is that weâ€™re creating more chances than last year,â€ť Graham told the South Wales Echo.
â€śThe fluidity of the team seems a little sharper. Weâ€™ve worked hard in pre-season on that and itâ€™s coming together nicely.
â€śMy role hasnâ€™t really changed, but the gaffer says to me to make sure Iâ€™m in between the two centre-halves.
â€śWhen thereâ€™s a chance to close them down, close them down, but not run around so much because maybe in one sense, I worked a bit too hard last year.
â€śWhen we got into the final third I was lacking a bit of energy.
â€śHeâ€™s stressed that to me and if that improves me and gets me a few more goals I will be delighted."
