      You add in the FA & League cup matches in December and first couple of weeks in January and it will be brutal Dec/Jan.

      Last season we had we had cup matches Jan 8th, 11th, 18th, 25th, 28th, 29th + the regular PL schedule; add that in next to December and it would be easy to see any squad...not just us knackered by the end of January.

      I explained what I meant in the post above yours mate.

      Relatively inoffensive opener. With the first leg of our CL qualifier in the following midweek I'm hopeful this will stay at Sat 3pm.

      Don't think so tbh. We had just 7 last season.

      Watford away is always awkward, and they have Silva now, who will park the bus, as he did against us last season. We've two months to find an answer.

      Arsenal and City are in the first four games. Arsenal at home should be handy enough, City with all their new players rather less so.

      I think we're to much of a draw to hope for that tbh, they'll want to start with a 'rip roaring' weekend and there may just be a goal glut in that game.

      Fingers xd anyhoo.

      There are 38 games.

      Doesn't matter how they come.

      We need to win more than any other club .

      Let's think about the extra group fixtures if we actually make it to the group

      We'll be getting the extra fixtures either way, as we'll be in Europe until at least December.

      As for the traditional argument every year that they don't matter, that will change soon enough when the heat is on and the going gets tough, as it always does. As it looks now, the start is tough, the run in is tough, the busiest time of year around Christmas is tough, and the usual complaints of x amount of games in y amount of days. Arsenal and Burnley away are not top of the list of fixtures you want at that time of year. The biggest home games of the season are both before Christmas, so the mancs will come here in October again and park the bus again. And that's before injuries, suspensions, cups, and games in hand make their own impact. So the timing of fixtures matter.

      Last year, having the last game at home was a huge help in getting over the line, and we took advantage of it. We have it again next season, hopefully we can take advantage of it again if we have to.

      I've looked at the list a few times now, providing television broadcasters don't actively f**k us over regarding kick off times around European fixtures, then I think it could have been worse.

      It's got some tough runs, I don't like the number of games around Christmas. But in comparison to last years start I like it.

      Games versus big boys are well spaced out too. Run in looks pretty decent if we are competitive at that stage.

      Think we have utd and everton after a champions league game that could impact on those 2 games.

      I'd have taken away to Watford as first game, we should be flexing some muscle.

      Newcastle home to Spurs in their first game. Should be interesting, especially given what happened last time they met in the league :) Rafa all the way baby.

      Who cares? This is the Liverpool fixture list, which is set to get much more complicated than the league schedule suggests.

      Watford (a)
      ECQ
      Palace (h)
      ECQ
      Arsenal (h)
      City (a)

      Europe
      Everton (a)
      Europe
      Bournemouth (h)
      FAC/West Brom (a)
      Europe
      Stoke (h)
      Europe
      Chelsea (a)
      Brighton (h)
      FAC
      Europe

      After the line, the cup caveats come more in to play, but that is roughly how our list will eventually end up looking like.  Above the line, there are 21 league games by the turn of the year, 2 more than normal. The new contracts and signings officially begin tomorrow, and we need a lot more than 2 new players if we're going to deal with that schedule. It's 2 games per week for pretty much the entire season.

      The first ticket arrangements have been drawn up, and the first tv changes will be announced soon to further affect the schedule.

      Players back in training today, take your pick for the Wigan match folks.

      Players in Red are best not selected due to the fact they'll probably be at home throwing darts at a picture of Jürgen stuck to a dart board.

      Loris Karius, Kamil Grabara, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, James Milner, Alberto Moreno, Connor Randall, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jordan Henderson, Lucas Leiva, Kevin Stewart, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Pedro Chirivella, Ryan Kent, Jon Flanagan, .Mamadou Sakho, Lazar Markovic, Nathaniel Clyne, Daniel Sturridge, Adam Bogdan, Danny Ings.

      Meanwhile, the likes of Mohamed Salah, Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum, Simon Mignolet and Dejan Lovren will return later to Melwood, with those players enjoying staggered returns following international friendlies and tournaments earlier this summer.

      5 of the first 7 fixtures have been changed. The season starts at Watford, and it's our first early Saturday ko time for our first game since beating Stoke at home in 2013.

      Surprisingly our first home game of the season has been left as scheduled for the first time since 2011. Indeed two home games have been left on the original ko times, which is the same amount as the whole of last season.
