The Premier League fixture list for the 2015/16 season was announced today, giving everybody a reason to slack off work, just for a while!
Happy @premierleague fixture day. May your club play every other team in the league both home and away.

Really tough October for the Toffees – @ManUtd arsenal and Liverpool – and I don't like Newcastle away Boxing Day!!

Stephen Harper still a Magpies fan..
Not an easy August for @NUFC but hopefully they'll make some good additions and start well under the new Head Coach!

In their first seven games on the road, an already under pressure Brendan Rodgers faces Stoke City, Arsenal, Manchester United, Everton, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City..
Didn't think Sky had a say in the fixtures but @GNev2 must have been involved in picking Liverpool's first 7 away games.

Lots of hope for Rodgers..
Liverpool with a relatively straight-forward run-in there. Good news for whoever replaces Rodgers in January.

A certain German may be paying attention to the beginning of Liverpool’s campaign..

The season may have just finished, but we are already looking forward to the next campaign! Chelsea are 6/4 favourites with Coral to retain their crown next term, Manchester City are a close 5/2, while Arsenal and Man Utd are both 5/1 chances for domestic success.
