    Seems a decent fixture list for us. December seems crowded. There will be cup games also.
    We do need a big squad this season and good bench if we are to last the entire season and be competitive.

    Our early season fixtures look much better than last season, hopefully we do even better this time.

    Everton's on the other hand - STO, mci, che, TOT, mun :-)

    Maybe not good/bad, but certainly different risk profiles. Last season, we had a schedule that could have buried us early on, but instead furnished us with an early 'Top 6' lead that we never surrendered, and were able to convert into a Top 4 spot despite struggling through what was on paper a much easier stretch of fixtures in January-February.

    This schedule, by contrast, will demand consistency.

    That's what I thought. Almost certainly our worst sequence is the transition from August to September, with the second leg, coming before back to back games against Arsenal at home and Citeh away. But even that could have been worse.

    The big games are nicely spread out, and we have back to back home games in the christmas period. All good.

    I'd say the only really rough group of games is around mid October, with a CL game sandwiched between ManU and Spurs. Especially if the CL game is away. If it's a home game though, it suddenly looks much better.

    There is an international break between Arsenal and City.

    Our Christmas period is at home or rather local which is good.

    So, Lallana, Coutinho, and Mane to return with muscle pulls (Sturridge is assumed)

    Quite happy with those fixtures, On paper it looks less daunting, particularly at the beginning of the season, whereas last season we had a very tough start.

    Haha, nice one. Well yes, you're right about that. Should have put the "if" there somewhere..

    Anyone know if we are at home in the 1st or 2nd leg of the Champions League playoffs in August. Trying to organise flights from Ireland

    Thanks

    Fear not, as we will have Mbappe and Salah both firing, and some kid called Solanke being the premier league top scorer at this point... and a rock solid defence yet to let in a goal from open play, just a few from a free kick and 2 pens..., some geezer called Van Dyke holding it all together.

    Chill.

    Thanks for that.
    Does it mean that we are seeded we are guaranteed to be home in the 2nd leg? I've been told we are but have my doubts. Last year both seeded and unseeded teams drawn out were put into a jar and the 1st team out was at home on the 1st leg.

    Yes ....First drawn play at home in first leg...no advantage to being seeded in that respect.

    What @Zinedine Biscan said :well done: ( he won`t know the cheeky bugger is ignoring me ;-) )

    Christmas fixtures are the worst part of the list.
    We Go Again, Top 4 minimum please :-)

    We have to play all of them twice in the course of the season anyway, no difference anymore to me since we can really fight the big guns in away and home games, something that are harder to achieve compared to those tweaks on how to make sure our defence stay focus against the small or lower sides.
