    <party>:emoticon-0103-cool: Okay, so the teams come out on Thursday, we need to get off to a good start, perhaps avoid the top six brigade! I would say Watford at home could maybe ease us into the big league with the possibility of a point realistic. Pick your team, we’ll see who wins pals!

    You're going to have to play the big teams so you might as well get them early before they hit their straps.

    Lower mid-table team at home who you can beat - someone like Watford or Newcastle

    Holy ****!!!! You look at that lot and wonder where a point will come from. Maybe Bournemouth at home to start. I wouldn't want to start off with good teams and get the losing habit. Then again, last time ,we did M City OK but then look where we ended up.

    By one point, we do not appear in the 20 worst Premier sides which considering we had but one season there is not bad! Might be in the 25 worst though! :emoticon-0103-cool:

    <party>Derby the worst by far under Billy Davis and Paul Jewell! <party>Cheating Bastards!

    BT wants a trip to the seaside - bucket and spade packed and ready.

    Me, I'm not bothered. We have to start somewhere. Just prefer to be at home first.

    Last time we were in the Prem we played West Ham away first game and my boy came home from the game and said "Dad we're going down". We beat Man City home the following week - he was right in the end though.

    First 5 games are the most important in any league season IMO and especially so this season where the squad must be finalised before the first game, someone like Fulham, Wolves, Bournemouth, Watford, or Palace would suit me.
