    Not too bad at all!

    Four of the six games have HOME GAMES after the CL game, with one of the two away games being Man Utd, which is like a home game from the travel perspective. That game may be greatly affected by who each team plays in the CL, and where, so I expect City to be in the Ukraine or some such, and United to have had a home game against the Pot 4 team!

    That said, apart from Spurs (A), Liverpool (H), and Stoke (A) prior to CL games, it would be hard to complain too much about it all......unless we end up with SUNDAY - TUESDAY schedules, or similar such bullshit designed to hurt us!

    This could be the year to push on on multiple fronts, with domestic cup, past the CL Round of 16, and competing for (winning?) the Premier League until the end. One thing for sure, Pelle won't be playing the reserves for ANY cup game this season!!
