We've got Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City in our first 5 games. Perfect.
I didn’t look at the rest of your fixtures but that’s a difficult start and I know people will say least they are out of the way but it gives you no time settle or gain any form.
Was going to say, better than the end of the campaign - then I saw your final
scheduled match. Perhaps, by then, you'll have the requisite number of points?
Villa away first away match - That will do.
I think every club we have played first in the last 5 years bar Man United have been relegated. Villa, West Brom and Cardiff. One for the Blades fans .
Also Our first match back in the 2nd tier in 1987-88, Sheff Utd away, won 1-0, Scorer...Brooks.
Really? An ominous stat if correct - cursed before they've even kicked a ball.
So it seems we've got them
I've already booked my trains up as they're only £35 return from London at the moment, despite how much i hate the Premier League i can feel myself being sucked into football again and started planning away days.
I think it's fair to say i'm addicted
15-16 - Villa (H) L 0-1
16-17 - Man U (H) L 1-3
17-18 - WBA (A) L 1-0
18-19 - Cardiff (H) W 2-0
No idea what point you're trying to make in relevance to what I said.
I just said I didn't want a good away game early on because I'd rather be by the beach. Also, one thing going for Bournemouth away at least is that it's not in Wolverhampton.
Wolverhampton is a ****ing cesspool but it has good Beer and great Indian food.
Bournemouth has ****ing nothing.
Chris Wilder laughs in the face of curses.
Really believe that Wilder is something special, he can make ordinary players play in multiple/ changing positions and perform well above their previous standard, makes no sense how centre half’s can play out on the wing, both full backs occasionally appear together on the left wing, then both full backs pop up together on the right wing, centre forwards are back in defence, centre backs break forward up front, it’s madness but it works. Even Bielsa admitted he’s studied Wilders tactics and finds it fascinating, apparently he’s tried to implement something similar in the past but couldn’t do it.
Think Wilder is going to shock people next season and become a massive name in football.
Alternatively our system could be totally exposed, it fails so Wilder has to start again from scratch, anything could happen.
Amazing - talk about the Devil in the detail. Shame about 16-17, though...
Interesting - especially when you play at the Bridge at the end of August...
given that Lampard will at least have some knowledge of how Wilder sets
his teams up.
Be worth watching how you go - but, hopefully, with a bit of luck you'll have
an off day on Oct 19th...
Obviously not been in the Eye of the Tiger, Old Christchurch Road
Did your other half cheat on you with someone from Bournemouth or something?
It's best to play the tougher teams first.
The first few games are a bit of a crap-shoot. No one is settled in and a lot of teams play poorly. Big teams often come back only at 50% and get scalped in the early games.
If you're going to get a somewhat random result, get it against one of the big teams. Save the "guarenteed" 3 pointers for when the teams are settled, back to speed and playing at their normal levels.
An opener against a "small team" is more likely to lead to dropped points than playing the same team later in the season. Same with playing big teams... You're more likely to get a result against them in the early games when results seem a bit random as players settle in that later in the season.
