      They are announced tomorrow and I am going to beat the rush by getting my complaints in now!

      It's a fix! Not fair, why do we have to play our hardest games - [at the start] [in the middle] [at the end] [in the middle of the first half] of the season] FA OUT!

      I am going to bet on the Dippers away for the first game of the season and pray for the scum at home on the last day.

      Let's have a sweepstake on the first game, it was my idea so I get first pick - you have to choose something different or it would be futile, like that fucking election was. The winner gets bought a beer by everyone else, unless of course I don't win, then I still get a beer from everyone for getting the ball rolling. If it is a tie then someone has been a cunt and not read the rules.

      My prediction is:

      LIVERPOOL AWAY

      Don't care who we get I just hope we are at home first game of the season and can put the Wembley demons to bed straight off the bat with a good win.

      I think the TV companies will want it, so it will be an attractive fixture - Everton at Wembley, our 'home' isn't quite ready yet!!

      @Chavhater01 with a converted right footed Ryan Sessegnon playing on the right. ;)

      Or Hull, for the vast majority of pundits & non-Spurs fans who thought we were shite & were relegated.

      Hopefully the pretty boys can grow some balls and kick lumps out those Chavs, plus no Hazard or Costa, maybe. God I'm already setting my heart on this fixture!

      Buzzing for the first game at Wembley being against Chelsea! Proper chance to make Wembley our temporary fortress and show everyone that we mean business.

      United, Liverpool and Arsenal in 11 days end of Jan/beginning of Feb! Season defining moments they will be.. Can't wait! Raring to go.

      Nobody won the competition, so I have asked a panel of independent expert to judge this one. Their unbiased verdict was:

      The closest prediction was Liverpool Away,​

      The panel ignored Huddersfield, because ... well, everybody does don't they? I went there once, it's like a not so sophisticated version of Leeds.

      So I am the winner!

      I heard Leeds got the wheel last year. They say it's the best thing since sliced bread, which they got two years ago.

      @skiathospurs fixtures work out nicely for you if you turn up for the NLD and stay for a month or so.

      Newcastle been given a year to break the new PL rule about away fans pitch side,something about unsafe and segregation,well close the olympic stadium then for starters.So once again away fans at st james hidden up the top tier,not right IMO.

      New rule this season is away fans or some of the allocation have to be pitch side,well sunderland dont matter now,but yes man u meant to comply as were newcastle,but PL given them one year dispensation.Apparently WHL would have required a change,I am guessing because of wheelchair supporters in front of away fans.

      Manchester United - United will need to make changes to the away section at Old Trafford. At present there is one block of home supporters between the pitch and travelling fans, who sit in the corner of the East and South stands.[​IMG]

      Premier league fails to enforce away fan rule at Newcastle
      6/14/2017




      [​IMG]
      The fixture list for the 2017-18 Premier League season sees Spurs travel to Newcastle United for the opening game. Under new rules introduced by the Premier League, this season all clubs have to offer a proportion of the away allocation seats pitch side. This was agreed last summer, with clubs given a period of grace in order to implement any necessary changes. But Newcastle United have been given dispensation not to offer seats pitch side.

      We understand that NUFC and the Premier League are citing “safety reasons” for the decision. But neither NUFC or the Premier League are commenting any further.

      Supporter organisations knew NUFC were asking for dispensation after it became clear the club would be returning to the Premier League. We asked if we could put the case on behalf of the 19 sets of away fans who would visit Newcastle this season. We received no reply.

      Today, on hearing the news confirmed, we contacted the Premier League again. But the supporter services department is on holiday.

      If there really are safety reasons for this decision, it seems odd that the Premier League and the club aren’t explaining clearly what they are. We’d be interested to know why putting away fans pitch side is less safe than putting home supporters pitch side or, indeed, why it is safe to place visiting fans up in the gods yet not safe for home fans. We understand the way NUFC position its own season ticket holders has changed, a move widely opposed at the time by the club’s own supporters, but this is not a safety reason.

      The rule was introduced because, in the words of Premier League chief Richard Scudamore: “One of the unique things about our game, particularly in England, is the amount of away fans and the noise they create. When an away goal is scored, you want that atmosphere and interaction between the two sets of fans.”

      NUFC have had ample time, and have the resources, to comply with the rules. The fact that the Premier League have allowed them not to comply for at least this season doesn’t suggest it is as keen on that “atmosphere and interaction” as it says.

      This is the second season in a row in which the Premier League has failed to enforce its own rules. Last season Hull City was allowed to flout the rule on offering concessionary pricing to home supporters, an issue the Premier League failed over an entire season to resolve and which has conveniently disappeared with Hull City’s relegation.

      The failure to enforce its own rules, seen alongside the failure to respond to requests from fan organisations, leads us to question just how effective the Premier League is as a governing body, and how committed it is to the much heralded “structured dialogue” with fans.

      In the meantime, we will ensure we pack our binoculars for our trip to Newcastle.
