After being away all day yesterday, I am probably 24 hours behind on thisÖ
Actually looking at the new seasons fixtures for the first time, I am still trying to decide what to make of the opening fixtures and as a result, how I expect Spurs to fare. I like the fact we have a mix of "easy" and "hard" games, but also plenty for the players to get motivated for. The opener at West Ham, shouldn`t need too much work from the manager to inspire and fire up the players after last seasons capitulations. Just serve up their pre match drinks in West Ham Treble mugs and that should do it.
Follow this up with a meeting with Tottenham old boy, Harry Redknapp and the returning might of Liverpool the week after that and August looks pretty spicy, one way or another. An international disrupted September, will of course have an away North London Derby at the end. A time when after Six league games, you hope that the players will be attuned to the managers methods and demands and can give our neighbours a hell of a game and of course beating.
So what of these first six games? What should we be expecting points wise? Will and should we expect a slow start, as the new coaches and players get themselves sorted or will we hit the ground running and be on 15 + points by the 1st of October? With not too many players on World Cup duty, is this a benefit to the manager to have a good percentage of players in early. Fresh and injury free for some hard work? Should we hope that Arsenal and Liverpool players return tired from Brazil, but equally is there an argument that in the short term, they are actually match fitter than players that stayed at home. That might of course change after Christmas, as no real break, could take its toll on the squad.
So what are your thoughts? Should we be happy with the fixtures we have or could it have been easier?..
