Holy shit, that's a tough start. I fear for Rodgers if we don't get off to an absolute flier.
Why? Why fear for him? Looking at those opening fixtures at the moment:
18 West Brom (A)
25 Manchester City (H)
1 Arsenal (H)
15 Sunderland (A)
22 Manchester United (H)
What (realistically), considering last season, are we expecting? West brom away? Probably a draw. Manchester City at home...probably a draw, Arsenal at home, a draw, sunderland away, probably a draw, Mancs at home, a draw.
See what i mean, that's best case based on how last season went. That's 5 points from the opening 5 games. I think we'll do better than that if i'm honest.
Fuck it, you've got to play the some time. At least they're at home and not away.
