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

Newcastle at home

https://www.premierleague.com/news/419044

We will will never schedule a club to start or finish the season with two home or two away matches because it would be unfair for a team to finish with two aways, especially if they are looking for points.
THFC rule breakers ;D

1) Are there any dates you wish not to be at home? That is answered in conjunction with the local police. 2) Which club do you want to pair with? 3) Are there any teams you do not wish to play at home on Boxing Day?
Never knew that one though... wonder if you can name 19 teams? ;D

Bournemouth at Home.

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!!

ManCity

And I'll take it a step further.
@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!

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!

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.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/premier-league-clubs-agree-changes-9231473
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.

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





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.
