    The fixtures are out tomorrow. Apart from seeing when we play the scum or blueshite I look at first game, Boxing Day and last game of the season.

    Who do you want on those days?

    1st - Villa
    Boxing Day - Brighton
    Last - Bournemouth

    I look at the first six and hope it doesn't have many big games in it. Good start is crucial. The rest I'm not really bothered about. Probably be away at Christmas so not bothered about that. We'll have the league won in April so last game doesn't matter.

    Don’t the tv companies update the fixtures 10 days after release?

    Burnley away is a bit of a cunt of a fixture to start the new season.

    Not ideal, by any means.  However, we looked so much more adept at negotiating this kind of fixture last season. Let's hope that continues into this.

    Not too many difficult ones in first 6. We will probably get arsenal in that first

    Because people are excited enough to watch first match of the season anyways, regardless of who is playing. TV wants to save big fixtures for later to keep viewership up.

    The supposed random system isn’t random. It has parameters to stick to and one is no massive derby games first or last game of the season.

    Yeah, there was a 442 article about it a f3w years back, the parameters are very many & varied. The amount of permutations that are involved are nuts. Yet they still manage to put us against Southampton at a kick off time that means the trains have stopped running by full time.

    If it is Burnley - they got better towards the end of the season after they had recovered from their Europa League fatigue. We'll likely be going there with only 1 of the front three in a good state of fitness, could be a very tough one.
