      Not bad fixtures but after all we need to play everyone twice. Winning brings winning and confidence. Can't wait for the West Ham match.

      Think Wenger cast his spell on Arsenal Fixtures  City the Chelsea nice for the new manager to here shouts of sacked in the morning by the third game.
      We definitely have a chance to make a quick start but after the World Cup everything could easily be a bit hit and miss.

      Let's hope we can find some consistency of the good kind to get us through to that good last couple of months of fixtures.

      Happy with that start to the season, obviously gets a bit tougher once we get into September & October, but start off with some good momentum and a few wins under our belt and take it from there.

      So we are playing away from home before every CL group game.

      But at home after every champions league game

      Swings and roundabouts

      It's the better way round in my opinion

      Not really bothered by it. More impactful is the amount of days between the games.

      Home on the first day for the first time since 2014. Home on the first and last day for the first time since the title race went to the final game.

      Away to Spurs as the first game in their stadium was one I specifically wanted to avoid. No such luck. And it's about time we were away to the mancs first, but we'll have to wait another year for it, so another busparking task awaits us in 6 months time. Burnley away on a midweek in December, you'd want to avoid that as well, while the barcode bus in Newcastle is not the most ideal last away game, especially if we're still in Europe.

      Chelsea away is out of the way early, City at home is a chance to lay an early marker down. December has 4 big home games, before we go to face City. And the last game is at home. It's the first time we've had the last day at home, three years in a row, that I can remember. But a nice one to finish if a result is needed.

      Overall not bad, not perfect, but better than last season. Hopefully we'll take advantage of it.

      Even taking out that amazing Champions League run, I really enjoyed last season. Even though we finished 4th I think we played some really great stuff and the squad finally endeared themselves to me. We've made a good platform to launch ourselves further up the table for this 2018/2019 season. Looking forward to pre season getting underway in a few weeks and seeing Jürgen and co back in action.

      Mid September to early October jumps out as a challenging part of the season.

      Not a bad set of fixtures though, better first couple of games than Arsenal that’s for sure.

      Can only imagine the chaos caused by a winter break and the qatar world cup

      The winter break is really only going to see us miss one weekend of games and with the lack of replays in the League Cup and the fact that the season will finish a week later I can't see it having any impact really by then or for the Euro's in 2020.


      Apologies - yeah the Qatar world cup - that season will be grim.  The only positive is that we won't be able to immediately go out and buy the El Hadji Diouf of the tournament.

      Think Wenger cast his spell on Arsenal Fixtures  City the Chelsea nice for the new manager to here shouts of sacked in the morning by the third game.

      Think it will work differently really.  Arsenal had such a bad season last year that anything they get from those games will be looked upon positively, although their problems last season were really away from home.

      Feel for Rafa, terribly tough start. Four top 4 contenders in his first five games.

      I’m pretty happy with ours however, we aren’t the greatest on opening day, but hopefully being at home that will change.

      Revised fixture list after the next international break:

      v Spurs (a)
      v PSG (h)
      v Southampton (h)
      v Chelsea (h)
      v Chelsea (a)
      v Napoli (a)
      v City (h)

      Hope the players enjoy the break, because that's some serious schedule by the time the October international break comes around.

      How about after the November break. Not much respite tbh.

      v Watford (a)
      v PSG (a)
      v Everton (h)
      v Burnley (a)
      v Bournemouth (a)
      v Napoli (h)
      v mancs (h)

      Two games a week every week, before Christmas. So the full resources of the squad will be needed to help see us through.

      You couldn’t sound more disappointed about us having 2 games a week. Grow a pair and stop being scared of other teams.

      Every team battling for the top will be in the same position as well. Chelsea will have Europa league which is even rougher on scheduling I reckon, as far as time between matches. Potential injuries aside, we're in no different boat than anyone else.

      Not to mention we follow every game in the group with a home game.

      That can't be understated. I don't understand how we got so lucky to have it work out that way, but f**king huge. Especially when coming back from Belgrade, a home match vs Fulham (which myself and the wife shall be at!) is, on paper, an absolute f**king blessing from Fowler.

      On the contrary. I love the busy schedules and see it as a sign of a successful side. The more the merrier.

      Like most coaches, Klopp doesn't see it that way, and often tells us why having one game a week is great. While his record the weekend after European games is average at best, be it in either competition.

      I hope we sweep the board, but if we don't, the first reason to explain why will be "tiredness" from the tougher schedule. It always is.

      Spurs tomorrow. No Lloris. No Dele Ali. We're at full strength.

      Who says it doesn't matter when you play the games? Of course it matters. And this one has worked out well for us. So far.
