Just seen the new fixture list and would you believe it we have been given a series of tough away matches to start the season yet again. Our first 3 away games are at Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea and there is also a difficult home match with Leicester in the early weeks. Mind you it wasn’t the big teams that caused us the most problems during last season and indeed we got 8 points from the corresponding four fixtures last season. If we can come through September with a reasonable haul of points we should be well set for the rest of the season. Our final match is Middlesbrough at home so let’s hope there is something to celebrate on that day, at the very least a top 4 finish.
