    Those last 4 fixtures though..

    Spurs
    United
    Stoke
    Everton


    If we are still in the running for a title.. or still battling for 4th, then those last fixtures could be absolutely lethal.

    Dont mind our first fixtures though, infact I am quite gland we have a tough two games.

    Liverpool (H) and Leicster (A) - are both challenging big games, but ones we usually win, and should win next season.

    Cosidering how lazy our starts have been over the past few seasons, it may be good for the tema to not have an easy first couple of games, and to go right in with some big fixtures.

    October is a nice month..

    Anyone know why we have the same doubles of games throughout the season?
    Liverpool followed by leicster, twice.
    Spurs then united, twice
    Chelsea and hull together, twice

    Presumably easier to match up 19 fixtures and then repeat rather than 38 sets of different fixtures?

    So many considerations when they draw up the fixture list. For example Arsenal/Spurs, Liverpool/Everton and Man Utd/Man City never play at home at the same weekend.

    True, I remember reading an article on the principle guy who does it on the bbc a few years back.. seems like a nightmare job - cant make everyone happy.

    Even though no-one expected Leicester to win the title, Leicester had probably their hardest 3 fixtures in a row at the end of the season
    United (A)
    Everton (H)
    Chelsea (A)

    The point being you have no clue who is going to be in form at the time, what the fixture congestion is at the time, whether Everton be pushing for Europe? Therefore, it is difficult to say, however traditionally that is probably as hard of the last four games as you can get, but who knows whether Everton/Stoke will be midtable and on "their holidays" or fighting for Europe.

    Ideal scenario, we win the league at White Hart Lane for the 3rd time.
