This morning the provisional fixture list for the 2011/2012 Premier League season was released. United have been given a very tough start to the season next year and unsurprisingly, Chelsea have been given a relatively easy start. Although, if last year is anything to go by, then it could be a blistering start to the season for United. SAF will be keen to uphold his home record that he established this season and both the Tottenham and Arsenal fixtures in August are both at home, so the ball is well and truly in United’s court. We always start slow to the season but maybe next year will see us come sprinting out of the blocks. The other good thing about this fixture list is that the majority of the tough fixtures avoid the March and April months and the reason this is good is because it is when the schedule becomes a bit saturated with the Champions League knock-out rounds leading to a lot of games in a short space of time. The last day of the season will see United travel away to Bruce’s Sunderland whilst Chelsea have Blackburn(H), Manchester City have QPR(H), Arsenal have West Brom(A) and Liverpool have Swansea(A). All in all, the schedule list doesn’t change a thing but the anticipation can now start for the beginning of the 20th Premier League season. Will United make it 20 titles in the 20th year? Will Chelsea re-find their title winning form? Will Arsenal do what they said they have been so close doing for 7 years? August needs to hurry up and come around because I don’t fancy waiting that long.
