Thats when it really sink it! Cant wait! Who do you want first up? Fancy one of the middle table clubs at home to see if we can guage what sort of season we are going to have. A Wigan,Bolton or Man City at home would be good

Well done Burnley, I was cheering you all the way. A small town club with a big heart and it gives us all hope.

Cheers PP! Yes,it does sound out all the right signals. Small squad,little money can still bring success giving hope to all. Doing it under these circumstances makes me even prouder when you look at other promoted teams who have gone up there with much bigger financial muscle eg Hull, Wigan(David Whelan&JJB), Blackburn(Jack Walker)

I am looking forward to the derby's against Preston and Blackpool ha ha i don't think so bring on the real derby's Blackburn,Bolton,Man Utd,Man City,Liverpool,Everton go on then Wigan ;-)

Amazing really how many clubs are from the Lancashire/Greater Manchester/North West area in the EPL-Burnley,Blackburn, Bolton, Man U, Man C, Liverpool, Everton, Wigan. Lots of derbies!!-14 in fact!!

As mentioned above - I think that this is the day when it will really sink in! I have no idea who I want. I suppose ideally it would be a winnable home game, Hopefully get some points on the board!

I guess it doesn't really matter. Hull beat Fulham 2-1 in their openner last season at the KC and went on an amazing run pre-Xmas but look what eventuatlly happened to them. Suppose it would be nice to kick off the season with a win at home or draw away just to give us all a bit of hope
31/05/2009 10:56:00
Thats true Phil - I wouldnt like the post Xmas run Hull went on - but i would accept without doubt the final league position!
31/05/2009 11:08:00
Yes survival is top priority although they do say the second season can be the hardest presumably because by then most of the other sides are beginning to suss you out and a sizeable chunk of the £60 million has been used up. Be interestong to see how Hull & Stoke fair next season. Would just love to do a Wigan or Fulham though!
