    Apparently the club have asked for two away games at the start, let's hope if it happens, it's WetSpam and Leicester and not Burnley and Boro ( midweek) , and to finish the season away. To enable more time for building works........probably best to finish home to West Ham........keep em locked in for two hours , that'll save a lot on demolition costs

    We need to sort a NLD meeting thread and somehow get tickets sorted. I'm in and will do whatever I can to help.

    It's good time to play Everton, it will take more than one competitive game for new manager to sort out Martinez's defense plus Lukaka leaving..... 3 points please.

    My guess would be that we win the title on the 6th of May at West Ham.

    Or a Siege mentality for a new manager. Yet again, we get a new manager's first game with us. On opening day no less. Absurd.

    Quoted from Soccernet:

    Easiest start to the season

    New Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola gets a relatively straightforward start to life in the rough and tumble of the Premier League, kicking off at home to Sunderland before travelling to Stoke, then it's home to West Ham before the Manchester derby with Jose Mourinho and all that entails, and then it's back to more gentle far with Bournemouth and Swansea. Though they pay for it in December.

    Arsenal have perhaps the toughest start to the campaign of the big clubs: they face Liverpool, Leicester and Chelsea in their first six fixtures; while Liverpool's away run begins Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea. But Hull's start is positively nightmarish: the Tigers will have to play Leicester, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea before Oct. 1. Get them out of the way early, eh?

    Toughest run-in

    If Mourinho is to take Manchester United back to something like their past glories, he'll have a tricky final few weeks of the season to face. In their last eight games United face Everton, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea, as well as potentially troublesome trips to Sunderland and Burnley who, with all due respect and so forth, could well be scrapping against relegation at that stage.

    Tough run for a title contender

    For Chelsea's sake, hopefully Antonio Conte will have got things working by January and hasn't already been sacked in a fit of Roman Abramovich pique. The new year sees them travel to Tottenham, then Leicester, a small bit of respite with a home game against Hull, before it's back on the horse with games against Liverpool and Arsenal. It could be a defining few weeks.

    Premier League fixture list is all about Man United boss Jose Mourinho - ESPN FC

    To be honest we have to get over this tough start...tough November...tough run-in stuff. All teams have to play every other home and away across the season. If we're good enough we'll do well.

    There will be times during the season when it appears the world is against us - when we'll end up playing teams that have suddenly hit form, or after a difficult CL away match or when we face a new manager as we have in the past with Klopp and Pardew. But that will be the same for everyone.

    This manager and group of players will have learnt so much from the last two seasons - Cup final, playing at Wembley (5 of them for club and country) european football via the Europa league and the Euro's, together with a title attempt - that I think they will be even stronger for this one.

    With the new managerial appointments, undoubted influx of new 'star' players as a result and the local rivalries...I'm looking forward to potentially one of the best Premier league seasons ever and expect us to be right in the mix of things, with some huge games coming up, whilst we also battle with the European elite. This club is going places and I don't just mean Munich, Milan, Barcelona, Paris, Seville or whomever we get drawn against...it's a great time to be a Spurs fan.

    I doubt any PL tickets will make general sale and Cat A wont even go on general sale to members let alone the public,thats 100%.
    ICYMI if tickets dont go beyond the membership platform for a match,then stubhub is only available for members to buy on for that match,not the general public.

    So Leicester get 6 home games after CL games and we get 2, they start off at home to a promoted club, as do Chelski and Arsenal get home fixtures whilst we get an away day , against a team with a new manager.....ffs, as someone once said," Why ALWAYS US"

    As sky said "Leciester handed a CL bouns and slice of luck having a home game after all 6 CL games"
    I'm sorry sky that's not luck, that's someone under instruction at the FA....the chances of that actually happening is about 5000/1.....sound familiar?

    Man, the FA is gonna milk this Leicester thing for all it's worth. Sore udders abound. Would be classic if Leicester turned around and sold off Vardy, Mahrez and Kante and proceeded to get obliterated in Europe. The King Power would be laughing whilst rolling about in a pile of cash. Just like some other footballing organizations do.

    The chances are 0.5^6=0.015625= 1.56% chance. Don't make up fake numbers to boast your argument. (I still agree with you)
