London calling

Stiffen the sinews, sharpen the wits - we're in for a tough start to the forthcoming Premier League campaign. Hot on the heels of a visit from this season's fourth-placed side Spurs is a trip to Champions League winners Chelsea. We'll just have to hope that Papiss Cisse can defy the laws of physics again...

The fixture list has also thrown up a festive nightmare in the form of a Boxing Day jaunt to Old Trafford followed by the excursion to the Emirates three days later. The best solution may be to just ensure the whole lot passes in a drunken blur - nothing new there then, eh?

The reverse fixture against Arsenal will bring the curtain down on our campaign at St James' - fingers crossed we're vying with the Gunners for glory - while our games against the Great Unwashed are due to take place on 20th October and 13th April, though they (as with all the other dates) are liable to be changed at the whim of TV schedulers.
