Brutal start to the season, but if we can hang in there and be mid-table by the start of December, that's when we should pick up points.

Our April - may wasn't that friendly be this year!
arsenal and chelsea away
City, united, everton at ours

I fancy us being above Arsenal going into the game against them.

First quarter is going to be a big test for the new look squad! December and 7 matches against all teams we should be picking points up from. Strange pattern of fixtures - no doubt the TV schedule will **** that up!
I haven’t renewed, but I will be watching.. :)

Having had a look at our full fixture list, I decided to be break it down into blocks...first block of ten games, second block of ten games, third block of eight games and final block of ten games. We are fully capable of getting 12 points from block one, 15 - 18 from block two (look at December!), 9 points from block three and 12 points from block four...giving us a total of 48 - 51 points. In context, that's three more wins than last season and puts us between 7th and 9th.

Maybe a bit off topic so apologies for that but the stats suggest Wolves are facing the trickiest start, while Manchester City have been handed the easiest.
When will this b*llocks ever stop.

I would just say that having a top side first game is not the worst scenario, there are some really odd results first game of the season and most of the bin dippers will hopefully be injured or knackered after the world cup whereas we will be refreshed and ready to go. I'd say nothing wrong in getting a few tricky fixtures out of the way early.

Hmm, Liverpool away first game.
For those of a certain age, remember when there seemed to be a relegation curse on Liverpool's first opponents of the season?

78/79 v QPR - relegated
79/80 v Bolton - relegated
80/81 v Crystal Palace - relegated
81/82 v Wolves - relegated
82/83 v WBA - got away with it
83/84 v Wolves - relegated
84/85 v Norwich - relegated

Luckily, doesn't happen any more.
Or does it...

Why would the Premier League fix the fixtures in Man City's favour over any of the other big clubs?

And what are these stats based on? First three games? First ten games? It certainly isn't first game given they have Arsenal first

I can remember this being spoken about on here somewhere and the feeling was that this is mostly the case for the first few fixtures.

Four of the likely top six in the first six games. Someone doesn't like us.

"The top-six teams over a three-year period are also kept apart in the opening round of games"

This doesn't look like it has happened this time round tbf

Ordinarily I'd agree 100% with that but I've decided for no reason whatsoever that I'm going to view it as a positive. Four of the likely top six destroyed by the mighty irons and only six games played....
