The fixture list for next season was just released and it looks like quite a tough start for our lads.
If we want to be troubling the top 4 this season, then we're going to need to get off to a flyer in some pretty hard games.... For my money, if we come through that lot in the top 7 or 8, then we'll be in a pretty decent position.

October and January being the only months where we play two of the top teams back to back. The last month of the season looks hard, but we will have home advantage.
Is this the year we can smash the glass ceiling?

I am confident of a good start, good finish, good all round season.
4 Posted 17/06/2010 at 16:26:36
Well, maybe a little optimistic but it will be 24 years since 1987 so you never know...
Anyway, first 3 games: Blackburn (a) Wolves (h) Villa (a)
Quite a satisfying start, albeit tough away games, but all are winnable. With two home games following with Utd and Newcastle coming to Goodison.
11/12 points from these opening 5 games would put us in good stead for a great campaign.

The good news is we will be able to tie up the League by beating Chelsea, the Champions, in our last game!
Or am I being a little over-optimistic!?

The fixture list isn't completely random, there need to be quite a lot of considerations such as local police forces, traffic congestion etc.
Although I consider the FA to be fairly corrupt, I don't think they maliciously alter the fixtures at all, and presumably there's an independent body overseeing it too.

Ciaran, I hope those words don't come back to haunt you/us. LoL.

Course it's a conspiracy — it's obvious. The more canny observer will have noticed that Everton have to play every other team in the Premier League. Not just once but TWICE! Often entailing journeys to parts of the land where they still eat their young and throw the tough bits out on to the cobbled streets.
And we'll have to put up with them bloody vuvu horn thingies...

Just because we fuck up with either injuries, late transfers, the global financial crisis, ozone layer issue, El Nino et al against the pricks every year doesn't change anything. We shouldn't lose at home. I see it as a bonus personally.
