Fixture List

ok, theyre not out until tomorrow, but raises a question - who do you want the opening game to be against? Someone big and hope we beat them to give us confidence? One of the new-comers assuming they would be an easy victory? One of the average teams? The derby?

Don't want one of the promoted teams, particularly away....one of them always gets off to a strong start so best avoided I think. Home to a mid/low team for me...Blackburn/Notlob/Stoke....someone like that.

Don't think it can be a derby. I remember reading an article on the guy whose job it is to organise the list. They get a ton of requests from different clubs and from the police and supporters groups for various clauses. I think they try to avoid derbies on important days like the first/final day of the year.

 

 

Would like Blackpool at home myself. I know promoted teams normally do well but they have an awful defence and I'd like to see us scoring a few goals early on.

Blackburn (away) it is....

 

1st Home game is Wolves - Beard, thats scary....

 

They look quite well spaced. Not the dates themselves but the teams, think only Spurs then the Shite are the only 2 'big' teams that we face back to back...

Brilliantly BOTH derbies are after the European breaks. So our lads will be off for 10+ days training and resting while Liverpool will be playing tough Europa League games B)

The pressure is usually more on the home team on the oppening game of the season.

Time for some revenge for a couple of seasons back, when the came to Goodison on the first day of the season and beat us 3-2 :(

Pretty sure it'd be randomly generated, then tweaked after a review?

Shouldn't need to be tweaked surely? The parameters (eg us and Liverpool not at home on the same day) must be pre-programmed I'd have thought.
