    A Prediction.....

    Now I'm not saying that there is anyway favouritism at EPL, but here's my spooky fixture prediction prior to official release,

    1.Manure will be at home for first and last game,
    2.Manure will play a newly promoted team in one or both of the games,
    3.Manure will have 4 out of the first six games at home,
    4.Manure will not play a top 4 team in the first 6 games.
    5.LFC will play top 4 team twice in first six games and will be away on first or last day.

    This is in no way done to help Manure get a good start!

    It's not that I'm clairvoyant, it just happens every f@cking year!

    Let's see how many out of five are right.

    • Well it's nice to see the letter I sent to the guy's at the fixture's department was listened too...HA HA!

    • Having checked the last game yet. But they are away for the first game. So you're worng on that count and off goes your conspiracy theory.

      In saying that, I hope that the referees are more competent this coming season for the good of the game than what was served up as officiating last season. Pretty poor standard of refereeing overall in 2010-11 campaign.

    • Well, at least its one less thing you can whine about. Or will you completely change your approach to this conspiracy now and claim playing the top teams early in the season actually benefits us.

    • 1.Manure will be at home for first and last game
      - NO and NO

      2.Manure will play a newly promoted team in one or both of the games
      - NO and NO

      3.Manure will have 4 out of the first six games at home
      - No

      4.Manure will not play a top 4 team in the first 6 games
      - Arsenal and Chelsea

      5.LFC will play top 4 team twice in first six games and will be away on first or last day.

      Nope and Home both games, hope you don't bet on the horses! :-)

    • 1.Manure will be at home for first and last game,

      Man U are *away* both games. West Brom and Sunderland.

      2.Manure will play a newly promoted team in one or both of the games,

      Neither.

      3.Manure will have 4 out of the first six games at home,

      Three at home, three away.

      4.Manure will not play a top 4 team in the first 6 games.

      They have Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea.

      5.LFC will play top 4 team twice in first six games and will be away on first or last day.

      Home on first day, then away at Arsenal. Haven't seen the rest of your fixtures yet.


      Pretty crap predictions, Daniel! Stick to the day job :)

      2.Manure will play a newly promoted team in one or both of the games - no, but Liverpool do
      3.Manure will have 4 out of the first six games at home - no, 3 home, 3 away
      4.Manure will not play a top 4 team in the first 6 games - no, Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea
      5.LFC will play top 4 team twice in first six games and will be away on first or last day. - true

      If you wish to start a fight, kindly don't do it with me.

      I've shown by my posts that I am interested in discussing football matters of interest, not engaging in 'bin dipper/manure' insults.

      No bee in the bonnet about Drogba, he's a good player who did the professional thing at OT and put the ball in the net. Not for him to declare himself offside

    • I think United show that the league is won by the team with the best consistency over the season rather than any team that starts with a bang.

      As for the results, you can still access all last season's results on the yahoo team pages. I think they keep them up until the beginning of July, at least. After that it's harder. My memory of Chelsea games in recent seasons is pretty good and I'm unlikely to be corrected if I stick my neck out over some Chelsea match of a few seasons ago and get it wrong :)

    • My mistake on Newcastle, I'm doing this from memory so I assume you know Chelsea's schedule better than me.

      End of the day if you believe playing teams that are likely to be at the same level as your own club early is better than later so be it. Personally I would prefer, especially in a new season under a new manager, to play a team that likely over the course of the season would be below the level of my own club.

      By getting a few points in the bag early I feel boost confidence and gets the players in the right frame of mind for when tougher challenges arrive. But dropping points early can have imo the opposite effect, which from our experience last season is not where I think any fans wants its club.

    • Erm - Newcastle wasn't a league match and we lost it! In fact our three matches against Newcastle resulted in one loss and two draws.

      The previous season we had lost at Wigan and drawn at West Ham so was it an advantage to go to those places early? Was it easy to play West Brom at home? In the next two months you only just beat them at home, United drew with them (their only dropped home points all season) and Arsenal lost to them.

      But let's suppose all of our first games were easy and that's why we went top. How does this help the argument? We then had harder games and slipped from top. Why does this make it better to have easier matches first? All it means is that you shouldn't read too much into league positions early in the season.

      My point about City was not about bedding in new players. It was that I expect results to be a bit more random at the very start of the season, before everyone has warmed up. Randomness tends to favour the underdog rather than the top dog. As we always seem to lost at City I'd rather throw in a wild card and see if that helps.

      Remember Burnley beating United at the start a couple of seasons ago? If United had won that they would have beaten us to the league.
