Doesn’t seem usual for Utd getting easy draws, think you’re reaching there mate.
I think it's safe to say it certainly won't be played at 3pm on the Saturday - it's going to be the premier opening fixture, and sure to be televised, but could be same day but earlier or later, or on the Sunday - Friday unlikely I would have thought
Wow,City at the start and than Chelsea.Can't be much worse lmao.
So its safe to say it wont move to a Tuesday or Wednesday, correct?
That start is about as hard as it gets. Don't think we will see many kids in pre season. It should be geared towards adopting the first team to the new manager and tactics.
A good time to be playing City in the first game as they won't have settled into any kind of rhythm. After that every game is winnable up until December
Yes, probably the only time it’s an advantage to have a lot of your team not good enough to go to the World Cup.
Pah who cares, bring them on.
If you count Lichsteiner and Torreira, there's more Arsenal players at this WC than there were in 1998.
Hope Uruguay get eliminated at the group stages tbh.
Jeez, City and Chelsea back to back. It could either be something that can boost us or rely derail our season right from the off. The only positive is that there are 8 winnable fixtures after that.
Also notice that Sp**s/United are back to back TWICE in the space of a few months. I swear this kind of stuff always seems to be happen to us. But ah well, who knows what'll happen. It's a new chapter and a new era so it's hard to say how we'll fair for once.
Baptism of fire for Emery. Nevertheless, we can only put in a shift & hope we deliver. If we actually manage 5 points from August' fixtures it'll be a phenomenal start.
The home crowd had better give the boss & the team enthusiastic support.
It's not a bad start I think. We'll have nearly the entire first team raring to go and with a full pre-season under their belt, while City only have a handful of players not at the WC. A lot of their players also rarely missed a beat all season, like KdB and Fernandinho. Would be surprised if they are 100% ready for the first game.
1998 was a great year. No-one dying in my life, no cocaine. And best of it you could tackle the GK in FIFA.
No Arsenal Mania though.
If we win City and Chelsea we will have plenty of games to **** the season up later!
If we can get 4 points from the opening 2 games that would great.Even 2 draws would be good I think they both will be televised and we play Chelsea a couple of weeks after we play them in pre season.
I reckon it’ll be Sunday, they had the Champions this year in a big match and chose to put it on the Sunday.
I’d like to see it on a Friday evening though. Glamorous curtain raiser.
Win the first two and we could be on our way to the title. Confidence would be sky high, and it's something that we've lacked for a very long time now.
