Opening fixtures

Two ways to look at them really.

The first nine games include some of the easiest looking games of the season. All of them look winnable.

The positive way of looking at them is that we have been given a great chance to have a blazing start to the season.

The pessimistic view is that if we don't start the season well, then we could struggle badly when the fixtures get tougher.

re: Opening fixtures

Absolutely right. West Ham last season were a case in point. On paper they had a pretty straightforward first couple of months. Few people had them down to struggle. Yet by the end of September they were in trouble and that set the tone for the rest of the season. Can't afford to be complacent.
