Dont know about opening day, probably a promoted side.

But I'd put money on Stoke home or away on either of the Xmas/New Year Bank Holidays!


Player Valuation: £25m
A promoted side third year in a row seems to be the consensus. If it is then I'll swap my first/last day guesses - Burnley away seems a goer.

A few people have gone for Swansea - any particular reason? There's no chance of the clown filling his old seat so I'm curious.... or is it that they're just the first jarg team en-route to our first of many titles under Jose?


Player Valuation: £8m
Man Utd away first game, the first 3 points of the season on the way to a top 5 finish. COYB

I will probably get shot down here by some stats nerd but in my 55year old mind I seem to think when we start off with heavy defeat at home we have a good season
