I think not having fans in the stadium could actually get a few monkeys off the players' backs. Reset the attitude to games and particularly to holding onto leads and coming back from behind.
It'll definitely have benefits, it's not all one way that a side suffers. Michael Keane has thrived without the fans on his back and imagine the reception Pickford would get, he has to have a better chance of not being as bad without fans.
Tbh it's our away form that has been awful in recent years and no fans definitely negates home advantage
