guys, in the past two seasons following our opening day match we have had to play two top teams only 48 hrs after our opening game:rolleyes: liverpool in 2000-2001 and leeds last season.
could someone tell me why this is?
:rolleyes:
the champions play their opening game on a sunday, so it looks unlikely we'll have a repeat of previous seasons.

it just bugs me!

cheers:)

The Leeds defeat hurt us this season, and I'm sure that a probe into the realms of the FA would grant an explaination of the fixture list.

it's just the way it is... if you are good then you are likely to be on Sky as soon as they can get their manky hands on you!

And come on.... the Leeds defeat affected you soo badly that you won the PL... my heart bleeds:tongue:

i think TV companies like Sky etc have a big impact on fixtures. i guess its to do with money.
arsenal would probably go along with it if sky pays them big time for tv rights per year you know.
i think we can handle it anyway.
if we verse 2 top teams in a row or 3 or 4 like this year
we beat the first one
we're like a steamroller
keep winning
i think momemtum was a BIg issue for us to win so much this year
