I'm guessing most of that Liverpool squad will be at the World Cup, imagine an Anfield win to start the season!

Glad we're away over the August bank holiday, can book a holiday that weekend now :scarfer:

Third season at this stadium, started away all 3 seasons & all 3 seasons away on Boxing Day - come on, we all know the score, it's going to be this way for as long as we play there.........Board just need to come clean rather than insult our intelligence with lame excuses.

Also, recent opening fixtures
2014/15: Spuds Home
2015/16 - Arsenal Away
2016/17: Chelsea Away
2017/18: Man Utd Away
2018/19: Liverpool Away

I'm laying a bet on our opening game 2019/20 being Man City

IIRC she was asked if it was true that we’d never play at home on Boxing Day to which she said no, we request that we don’t but it’s not guaranteed that our request will be granted. I’ll try to dig it out if I can.

Turns out that leaked list of fixtures wasn’t BS at all.

Both north London and Merseyside derbies on the same weekends, just the usual randomly generated set of fixtures then.

A less than ideal flow of fixtures IMHO. Five of the top 6 in first 8 games putputs pressure on the other esrly games, and means we are likely playing catch up (however well we have played)

And then a whole clump of top 6 sides in April just when the season gets to its denouement

Personally think it is nuch better If all the tough games are spread out rather than in clumps as then even if you lose one you have another run of winnable games after

The fixtures are as predictable as the premier league itself.

We never knew how good we had it 40 years ago!

I'd argue the opposite.

Having games against the top 6 teams in clumps means you can set up your team for those tougher games, and stick to the system for several weeks. Where as chopping and changing from 4 at the back to 5 and back to 4, and this and that, is more destructive to team balance.

How have Spurs got away with playing some home games at Wembley next season, then playing at their new ground from September?

I thought you could only play home games in one stadium for a season.
