I'm assuming this hasn't been posted yet, I was expecting it would be the the hottest talking point today..

One of my mates just emailed this to me.. sorry dont know where he pulled it from but looks like the FA donr want a repeat of us winning the League and Europe again!!



What a miserable holiday Sir must be having. First Cristiano Ronaldo stopped talking to him, then Aaron Ramsey snubbed a move to Old Trafford and Carlos Queiroz reportedly decided to leave Old Trafford to replace Luiz Felipe Scolari as Portugal's national coach. And now this - a Premier League fixture list that probably matches even the worst of the worst-case scenarios envisaged by the Manchester United manager.

Seen out of context from the rest of United's commitments next season, its devilry is not apparent. However, once the rest of the fixture list is crammed in alongside United's league schedule, any irritation Ferguson felt upon studying it would be understandable. Indeed, it is difficult to conceive of a harder set of fixtures for Manchester United to undertake on the six weekends that follow the first round of Champions League matches - Chelsea (a), Liverpool (a), Blackburn (a), Everton (a), Arsenal (a), Manchester City (a) and Tottenham (a).

The scheduled three-pointer against Fulham at Old Trafford on August 30 will be postponed because of United's Super Cup fixture against Zenit St Petersburg the day before, ensuring that, with only the home fixture against Newcastle and a tricky trip to Portsmouth taking place before the visits to Anfield and Stamford Bridge, it is far from inconceivable that the champions will be near the bottom of the table even as late as one month into the new campaign.

The optimists may argue that United have an advantage in getting so many of their tough matches out of the way early in the season, it is unlikely that the Scot will be endorsing such a viewpoint. Having stressed the need for a fast start ahead of the last two title-winning campaigns, it is not the south of France sun that will be making Ferguson red this week.

Don't we generally have a stumbling start.. so potentially points to be lost .. but of course we are great during Squeeky bum time so all those home fixture will reap high point tally's so it will all work out.. the away games after ALL of our CL group games is a little too convenient!!! Would be woried about a few of them although the likes of the Blackburn game is no longer a worry!

When are the Citeh games?? could be tasty this year, lets hope we do the double this year instead of those muppets!
