It's one of the most exciting days of the football calendar, partly because there is little else going on!
The fixtures are out and we open up against........................
A tough one but it should be a good game, at least we are at home, I love the buzz ahead of the first game of the season. Moneybags City away will be up next and couple that with the two Europa league matches it adds up to a tricky start for Moyes' boys.
February looks a nightmare month with United,Chelsea Liverpool(away) and Spurs, while we host Liverpool on Novmeber 28th.
It's a Boxing Day with the family I'm afraid unless you want to travel up to the North-East to play Sunderland, Burnley travel to Goodison on the 28th.
The run-in doens't look to bad with Blackburn,Fulham, Stoke and Pompey - hopefully our Champions League place will be secured by then ;-)
