      Had a couple years in a row of opening away from home haven't we? Surely a home one coming soon. Though I do much prefer finishing the season at Anfield so whatever. Really not too arsed. Would be pretty happy with an Arsenal or a Chelsea to start with to be quite honest, get the lads into the trenches real early.

      A very kind start to the season, no reason for not picking up 9 pts from fixtures in August.

      Yeah it's a must really looking at September and then the first game in October

      Think we will have an idea of a title chance by that point

      Spurs away a few days before our first Champions League group game, could be the opening game at White Hart Lane if they don't think they will finish by August.

      Key block of games is the six game block between the 2 international breaks in Sep / Oct



      September            
                  
            
                  International Break

      15 – Tottenham Hotspur (A)            
                  18/19 September: Group stage, matchday one
      22 – Southampton (H)            
      29 – Chelsea (A)            
                  
      October            
                  2/3 October: Group stage, matchday two
      6 – Manchester City (H)      
            
                  International Break

      3 of the "Big 6" - two of which are away, and two Champions league games. Go strong and hard in that block and we could set things up very nicely for the season

      Confirmed now that Spurs away will be their first game at WHL.  They have been given permission to have two home stadiums in the season as they will have had a game at Wembley.

      September is looking a bit tough but its a nice start and nice finish. Oh and Citeh away on boxing day is a bit brutal as well but the rest of Jan looks good.
      Overall very happy with that but we need to build momentum through Aug, maximum points.

      That should be an easy 9 points for us from the middle of September fixtures.

      Good start & a good finish imo, it won't matter much cos i reckon it'll be a two horse race with us and City and whoever loses most points will come Bridesmaids,

      Can't see Scum, Chavs Spuds being above us or City but they will of course be influential in taking points off either,

      I honestly believe that this is our time now, JΓΌrgen has/is remedying our shortfalls from last season, he has 2/3 of a new dominant midfield to support our already world class attack, he will add a new CB for Virgil and hopefully a new keeper(Oblak 😉) to complete the spine, add one or two support players in key areas and I'm telling you we will be challenging City for that Title.

      That is going to cause havoc in football leagues all over the world. Classic monument to the greed and corruption of FIFA. But at least it has re-introduced western society to the great benefits of indentured servitude and forced labor. Still feel like this would be a proper occasion for federatons, or even national governments to just say "No. We aren't participating if it is there."

      On the fixture list, putting the Arsenal and City matches so close to together during the festive season is just not right. I wonder if any of the other big six have two of their showdown matches so close together. Pretty sure I know the answer.

      Its the Spuds first official game at their new stadium.

      Lets give it a real christening and short of a gypsy curse .... let Mo and Co loose on them.
