First Game

Very tough Xmas period for us

But a decent run of fixtures at the beginning of 2008, with Liverpool away the toughest game on paper and the only game against top 4 opposition.


I would expect us to pick up a host of the 39 points up for grabs in this run of games, and be the making or breaking of our season

At least it's not ManU at home first game with Yobo squaring a lovely pass for Rooney...


So we should start fairly well at Wigan.... and let's extend that winning away form at White Hart Lane to 2 games as well... ;-)


Will all depend on if we can foster the team spirit that last off-season's trip to the States seemed to (and a couple of useful additions to the squad).


Can't wait!!!

Always nice to predict good starts to a season......But here's a couple of examples

as to why the first couple of games,aren't typical of the season ahead!!


1993-94....won first three games 2-0,1-0,4-2.....top of the table after those

three games!!.....last game of the season..Everton 3 Wimbledon 2..Survived!!


1984-85....lost the first two games 1-4,1-2....won the championship 6 games

before the end of the season!!!


So yes lets beat Wigan(and we should really)....but if we don't!Please no calling

for moyes head.


Can remember Brian Clough saying the first game of the season....pressure is

always on the home team!!.......what do you think?
