How did it come to this? From a group that was labelled by one national newspaper as ‘easy’, England have contrived to leave their World Cup progress down to the final match – a must-win 90 minutes against opponents who will go through to the last 16 should they pick up a lone point from the game.
The onus is entirely on England to take the game to Slovenia, but just one goal has been garnered from a pair of underwhelming matches so far despite boasting an attack featuring the world-beating talents of Wayne Rooney.
United kick off their new season by welcoming Newcastle United back to the Premiership at Old Trafford. Oh, and the Premiership also opens with Liverpool v Arsenal and Spurs v Man City.
We’re also going to be having back-to-back clashes with Arsenal and Chelsea twice — in December and late April/early May.
The title run-in seems a bit tough with a whole bunch of away trips. Anyway, here are some of the fixtures, and for obvious legal reasons we can’t post all of them. So head over to the site to read the rest. Of course, get back and discuss them here.
