    From the "leaked" picture i saw, the opening day will be:

    Villa v Utd
    Burnley v Newcastle
    Chelsea v Everton
    Hull v West Ham
    Liverpool v Arsenal
    City v Southampton
    Spurs v Leicester
    Stoke v QPR
    Sunderland v Palace
    Swansea v West Brom


    Would be happy with that if thats the case.

    Yeah I saw that leaked photo Mikk, be interesting to see if that's legit.

    The way things are going for West Brom, I fully expect us to be away at City or Chelsea so Irvine gets hammered in his first match.

    There's a leaked photo every year, it's never correct.

    Good to avoid playing the promoted teams on their own turf on the first day. Should be an easy 3 points against Stoke to start the season.

    All the big boys kept away from each other for the first weekend which is interesting. Fancy them all to win as well to be honest but no doubt there will be at least one shock.

    I think you underestimate just how shit your team is if you think you can get an easy 3 points away to Stoke.

    They don't for the next few weeks, City play Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea in their first five games.

    Villa have been busy in the transfer market and Roy Keane will get the likes of N'Zogbia and Darren Bent firing. Okore was injured last season which was a big blow but him and Holland's World Cup star Vlaar will form an excellent partnership in defence.

    We haven't been helped at all, tough start to the season tough end to the season and games after Champions League have not been kind either. Oh well, here's to a ten game winning run between the later games with the Manchester clubs!!!!

    Just because you've been busy in the transfer market doesn't mean you'll be doing any better especially when 'being busy in the transfer market' means Joe Cole and Senderos.

    First the Scholes banter, now this? Can only presume Grapes is a troll.

    Stoke proved themselves a good side last year under Sparky.

    Also is that the same Roy Keane who's pretty much flopped in every management and coaching job he's had to date? Not that he's even agreed to join Villa yet anyway.

    And he scores goals...!

    Re: General Football Discussion 2014-15

    The official Manchester United Twitter have just announced Antonio Valencia has just signed a new three-year deal.

    Not sure how I feel about that after his dismal displays last season. I wonder if LVG had a say on it or not. Interesting news nonetheless.

    Re: General Football Discussion 2014-15

    if Van Gaal wants to play 3-4-2-1 like he has with the Netherlands, then Valencia is probably perfect for the RWB/RM role. It may be that he tries this formation as he wants Vermaelen too who can ideally play LCB.

    it'll be much harder to find Viborg games this year, and it'll be interesting in our first full year since Ove was forced to retire.

    Nothing less than promotion is good enough.
