Ridiculous how long it'll be until we have a 3pm Saturday kick off at 'home'.

I bet the Sky "pundits" are lathering themselves up already for the big MU kick off on the 13th. What joy if we could just ruin it.

Anyone remember how many points were needed for this last season? Have 9 and feel like that should be OK but need to commit to trains now before prices go mental.

Home to Huddersfield seems a strange choice for Monday night televised match, unless we asked for absolutely as long as possible to get the seating back in place :)

No thought at all for the Huddersfield fans with arranging a London away match on a Monday evening.

Re: Fixtures - first three home games now all moved!

Still no idea what happens if we're drawn at home in the League Cup. Can we ask to postpone it, or will we be in the ridiculous position of having to give up home advantage?

Carlisle at home in the League Cup please. Then it gets changed to away, massive trek for our fans gets highlighted in the press, we go out to an embarrassing defeat, Brady gets quizzed about the mess of the stadium and the heat officially starts to turn up on The GSB.

Well....having stopped the Lukaku hoodoo last time out I expect a barron run from him now against us!!...so we can win the first game of the season 1-0 now (with his imminent arrival at Manure).

wishful thinking...???!

Section K4 of the Premier League Rules states

No Club shall have or enter into a ground-sharing agreement in respect of its
Stadium unless the agreement contains a legally enforceable provision to the effect
that the playing of the Club’s League Matches at the Stadium shall always take
precedence over the activities of the other party to the agreement.


Remind me again why our early games are all away?
