The total annoying thing about this opening fixture is that we are flying in that night for a family party. Plane arrives at Manchester at 19:05. Is there any chance of getting through border control, baggage, picking up the hire car and making it to Liverpool in time to catch the kick-off on the telly at 20:00? If not, I may have to make do with the second half (or get my wife to drive so I can watch it on my phone.)

So, less than a week after we paraded the European Champions League trophy, the fixtures for our domestic league are released next Thursday (13th June) at 9am.

Always an interesting time to dissect our fixture list in and around our champions league games and of course our trip to Qatar. And who we play on Boxing Day and over the new year. I always think starting and ending the season at home is a good start...

Anyway, who do you want up first?
Personally I’d like Norwich at home.
Was that a lucky guess?

Your wish is their command we’ve got Norwich at
Community Shield - LFC v Man City - 4 August
PL - #LFC v Norwich - 9 August
European Super Cup - #LFC v Chelsea - 14 August
PL - Southampton v #LFC - 17 August
PL - #LFC v Arsenal - 24 August
PL - Burnley v #LFC - 31 August

At this rate our players will be burnt out by end September.
Damn I forgot about the other fixtures in that period I suppose that is the price we pay for success

The game against Schalke is called off. I want to watch a game in Anfield, but I am from Germany so my question is: is it easy to get tickets against Norwich City(9.8.19), Arsenal(24.8.19) or Tottenham(26.10.19) as a "light member"?

Manchester isn't too bad for getting through border control. Longest I've had to wait is about 15 minutes, sometimes I've flown through in less than 5. They usually have automated scanners and a few people on the desk checking so the queues move pretty quickly. The drive to Liverpool from Manchester takes about 40 minutes, pretty impossible that you'll make the KO but if you're lucky you might only miss the first 20 minutes & 6 of our goals

Interesting schedule - ManU has a chance to make a very strong start with a run of home games against top teams early, but will really need to bank wins. We have something of the opposite, much softer finish to the season.

The only way is to try and find a bar at the Manchester airport where the game might be televised and watch it there? But the other alternative already suggested by another member is to go to Liverpool and be content to miss the first half.

The only chance you’ve got of picking up tickets to any of those games is to book a hospitality ticket.... will cost you more but at least you’ll get a ticket and won’t be mugged off by a tout outside the ground.

To be honest it might be better to play those teams at that point, the rest of the fixture list looks fine to me.

great opening game for us,
but i find it odd that Man City start the campaign away.

Cos in Scotland the league winners (usually Celtic) play the first game at home,
and get to unfurl the league winners flag before the game, usually a club legend would do this.
this flag flies in the stadium all season.

Why does this not happen in England, any idea?

Man City could have a club legend like.......

ehhhhhhhh, never mind...

oh no wait..........

Stephen Ireland!!!

Unfurl a giant plastic league winners flag,

Light membership allows you an opportunity to buy tickets for all games but there are restrictions. The Arsenal and Spurs games will probably require a certain number of credits from last season for you to be eligible. This is usually set at 4 games. The Norwich game is unlikely to require any credits from last season and there will be a bulk sale for members covering all games in the first half of the season. This is usually held in mid July. There is an additional members sale held roughly 2 weeks before each game and tickets will pop up randomly on the ticket site right up until the day before kick off.

Demand last season was insanely high and it was very difficult to get tickets via members sales. It won't be any easier next season. The system is infested with organised touting and ticket bots. I wouldn't advise people to take out new memberships until the ticket system is overhauled or the ground is expanded. You will likely be wasting your money. If you want to be sure of getting a ticket early enough to book travel, hotels etc then hospitality is your best bet. Please don't buy from touts. They are cunts.

Your wish is granted. I suppose you'd also like us to do a clean sweep of trophies this season? OK, done.

Truth be known I found a magic lamp not long ago and had three wishes.
I used one of them in the second leg against Barcelona, I used another for the final against spurs and then stupidly I used my last one to get a home game against Norwich.
I haven’t been thinking straight since origi scored. Apologies.

Playing on 26th December, 28th and then January first. That's an absolute skull-cracker... luckily for us, two of these games are at home, but still... :eh?:

As for the run-in, I don't think I've ever witnessed such a tough one since I follow LFC, at least on paper.

I'm hoping our luck's in and we get a kind draw, but I am not counting on it.
