Heheh. You're onto something there. You've hit the combination I went with
first. Can't argue with that. Should /never/ second guess yourself!

Liverpool and Everton both away, Fulham and Chelski both home?
I thought they decided the fixtures first then let Sky kick around the days.
They might also try to keep Newcastle and Sunderland apart, although the
Lancashire also-rans should be easier to manage now that Burnley have
been replaced by Blackpool because everyone 'loves' Blackpool.

You're doing okay so far, Vicky. Quite a strong entry I'd say.

Ffs. And then you go and come out with something like this. There is NO
WAY Tottenham will start at home to Aston Villa. It'd be like having Stoke
away to Fulham.
Are you new to this or something?

I know I'm not going to win but I'm hoping to bolster Ben's brittle
self-confidence so that he can say "I beat n + 1 this year" instead of
"I beat n this year".
BTW, I wonder if the powers that be will also alternate Wolves and West
Brom home fixtures.
