    For those Spurs fans interested, our actual home campaign gets underway at the new ground on the weekend of the 15th September against Liverpool.

    I can’t believe we are away last game of the season AGAIN and away over Xmas AGAIN, pain in the backside getting away for Xmas games.

    Liverpool are apparently away before every CL Group game. Let the complaining begin.

    Is what it is, its also some very tough fixtures in there now i've looked at it, chelsea, spurs and arsenal away all before group games. Just need to try and get things done early to ease it somewhat.

    Curiosity made me take a look at everyone else's fixtures too and its not been overly kind to man utd or spurs, both have 4 out of 6 games away prior to group matches, man city have 2 out of 6

    Swings and roundabouts but I don’t believe it’s completely random, we have Arsenal and Chelsea back to back again and United in April that fixture always seems to be then. City have apart from united all the top teams away before Jan which is good and a relatively easy run in.

    On the champions league thing again, you can look at the positive side of it, we are at home after every group game. Given the option I think i'd rather it this way round. Away in the UK then champions league game then home in the UK, think thats a little less tiring than home in the UK, champions league game then away in the UK

    Regardless any footballer should be able to cope and the whole point of getting an improved squad is to be able to manage this kind of thing.

    Fixtures are fixtures, everyone goes through a tough period at some point

    It is what it is. If people genuinely believe it's a fix, they should give up on the sport.

    Not as tough a start as last season, but I really wanted our 1st game to be at home.

    I'll be looking at no less than 13 points from our 5 opening games.
    Could even be conceivable that we have somewhere around the 19 points mark after 7 games what with Arsenal being an unknown under a new gaffer..!!

    This is one of the most favourable starts to a season, fixtures wise, I've seen for the club in a long time, compared to last season which was brutal (No European distractions either). Should give us a great starting run with confidence & momentum going into the tougher parts of the schedule.

    Excuse the language but GET THE FUDGE IN!

    I have finally got my hands on a season ticket, this is what my view will be like for the season at our beautiful new stadium, I absolutely cannot wait.

    Another season like the last one and it'll be a huge payday for Fenway next summer.

    You've sold EVERY other foreign star player anther club has come in for with silly money. Why would Salah be an exception?

    Time will tell.

    So every other wanted to leave, but you think he'll want to stay.

    We have the same argument every year or two, and every year or two the player ends up leaving.

    Maybe Salah will be the first to stay.

    Unfortunately history shows us that under Fenway Liverpool are a selling club. If Salah has another amazing season and has his head turned he’s gone.

    200k a week making him our highest paid player ever, I wonder if this will affect transfers coming in now who will want parity.

    @Woodywizz remember our little bet, or would you rather wait until the transfer window closes ?;)
