    every fixture in this league is difficult, your away form last season showed that, especially early on when you were lucky to snatch draws at some games.


    Our first games include new teams & brutality

    Sat 20 15:00 H Manchester City PREM
    Sat 27 15:00 A Liverpool PREM

    September
    Sat 10 15:00 H Man Utd PREM
    Sat 17 15:00 H Norwich City PREM
    Sat 24 15:00 A Arsenal PREM
    October

    I'd agree, which means we must beat QPR and Norwich and get at least 2-3 draws from the other games, minimum. If we have anything from 6-9 points from those games, it's a massive bonus and we can then look to build when the next set of fixtures come. Our home form will once again be key, last year only chelsea & liv beat us at home, we drew with city and united and beat arsenal.

    better to get the tough games out of the way early, plus apart from pool' theyre all at home & you usually do well at home against the top teams

    Dude we've got a lovely 3 month run in the middle of the season, if we can start strong (needs to be much better than last season) we will be in prime position, say if we're top 3 and closeish to top spot on points by November, I'd really fancy our chances at number 20.

    Man City got nice set of fixtures I feel.
    What would be classed as games against the bigger clubs are all spread out, not really a run of tough games, on paper at least.
    End of the day, we all play the same teams at some point but I understand how important it is to get a string of results together to take some good moral into the bigger games.

    We really need to improve on our away form and maybe be a bit less negative at home, perhaps play only 1 holding midfielder.
    Losing Tevez would be a major blow for us, Dzeko and Balotelli don't look over reliable.
    Hopefully Silva will learn to score as he does great work to get himself in a good position but is finishing is poor at times.

    I support Man Utd. The fixtures came out today. I didn't know it was going to be so offensive to people to post the full fixture list

    Let's talk about Norwich should we?

    People should keep an eye out for Ross Barkley this season, especially united fans seeing as he will no doubt end up with you lot in a couple of years...

    17 years old, bossed the midfield against both villareal and werder bremen in pre season

    Cahill calling him the best young player he has ever seen :cool:

    Would have been in our team last season had he not suffered a double leg fracture/double hernia operation. However with our pathetically depthless squad he should get plenty of game time this season.

    Irony was rio on twitter telling people to stay on their feet when they have Nani and now Ashley Young, both of who could get jobs testing the soil PH around the grounds they visit.
