Southampton home, opening day.

RS at home on a Tuesday night

November and April/May fixtures are a bit daunting but the opening fixtures are not as bad as we may have expected, however, every Premier League game is a difficult fixture. A good start is crucial for Everton.

Easy start for Rafa!

I never over-analyse this too much as ultimately we have to play everyone twice regardless. Although, yes some seasons, it's been tough when we've had tough fixtures in succession.

First glance observations, quite evenly spread with only the end of November looking ominous. That said, look at last season. We won what we thought we wouldn't and threw away games we thought we should win.

We'll clinch Europe against Brentford at home.

A pretty daunting end to the season and the RS on my birthday!

Not a bad start to the campaign. Only 8 weeks before we start though, so we need a new manager in as soon as possible and a few signings sorted too.
Paul Kernot

As several people have already mentioned on other threads, pretty much any game is going to be tough if we don't recruit well and it seems we can't recruit at all until we have a new manager. Not sure how much longer I can hold my breath.

Fixture congestion could be a problem later in the year when we have progressed to the cup finals but other than that, a good set of fixtures

Gutted the second derby is at Anfield. So much for equality, when was the last time the Goodison derby was second?

No such thing as an easy match in the Premier League, but that's a very favorable schedule out of the gate. There's definitely the potential for a strong start here (though it's hard to get too excited, given our fast start last season).
Dennis Stevens

Tough end to the season, in theory. Everton being Everton though, it won't necessarily work that way, of course.
Ian Horan

On the plus side only 3 weeks until our shambles of a squad return to pre-season training.
Ray Roche

Dennis, yes, a tough end, and one involving a relegation battle if NES is our manager, apparently.
Dennis Stevens

Ooh, it'll be like the 90's all over again, Ray.

Hey, that might mean we'll win something, at last!

Steady on old boy, don’t want to be seen to be ‘Happy Clappers’!

Agree with the point that we play every team twice but consecutive tough games is a challenge for Everton (in normal seasons).

We can’t be going into the final 5-6 games needing to win most games to get into the European places because that looks tough...

On a positive note, a nice start for the new manager so we need to capitalise on that!

April & May looks tough but – as Carlo used to remind us in every pre-match conference – every game in the Premier League is tough. A decent set of fixtures for the new manager to ease into.

I remember that Koeman had a horrendous run of fixtures at the beginning of his 2nd season, and coupled with the poor summer recruitment, the team struggled to pick up points, so the pressure started building up immediately, confidence dropped, and when the 'easier' fixtures came in, the team could not recover... ultimately resulting in his sacking.

Have they also put out dates for FA and League Cups which I assume those playing in European competitions (7 clubs, is it, this season?) will miss some early rounds of the League Cup.

Any new manager should be looking at those fixtures and thinking we can get to November possibly only losing once. Then we take it from there.
Jimmy Hogan
21 Posted 16/06/2021 at 11:17:32
I'd like to say it is an easyish start, but those are precisely the games we were losing last season...
Frank Sheppard

Looks like an okay start, but I have thought that so many times before, and we managed to disappoint.

First away game at Leeds. Imagine Bielsa in OUR dug-out against his old club!

Moshiri was keen for Marcelo to replace Silva back in 2019 when Leeds where in the Championship and from then they have gone from strength to strength and he has transformed Leeds.

I would love for him to transform us, Well I can only dream!

To me the fixture list always highlights how competitive the league is.

Obviously the top 4 have a huge head start and will be very difficult for any team to dislodge. Only through very bad management will they drop below top 4.

We're in a cluster along with Leicester, Spurs, Arsenal, WHU, Leeds and Villa. These sides should all finish top 10 and will be gunning for Europa league while dreaming of Champions League. No real relegation worries unless very serious mismanagement.

You then then have Wolves, Palace, Newcastle, Brighton and Southampton. These sides are gunning for the top 10 and dreaming of Europa league, while worrying about relegation.

Finally the promoted sides of Norwich, Watford and Brentford. These sides are simply concerned with staying up.

One or two of the bottom 10 will usually capitulate before Christmas and represent fairly easy games. The rest are generally difficult games which are close to call in advance

One thing last season should have now taught us anyway is that a good start obviously means nothing.

Won our first four games (something which is pretty unheard of at Everton) and also on Boxing Day night we were sitting pretty in second.

I don't look at fixtures and predict anymore, let the games take care of themselves as they come.

Right now we need to get a new manager in and give the fella a better crop of players than the shite we currently possess.

Matthew Williams

So the new fixture list comes out and we still don't know who the gaffer will be?

Everton that.

After a quick look, I always go to the final fixtures then swing from worrying if it’s a tough finish if we’re fighting relegation or trying to get into Europe. Hopefully a great start to the campaign will allay fears of relegation by Christmas, build up my usual hopes to have them crash down again by Easter.

After the way we performed at home last season, in general, but specifically against Sheffield United, Fulham, Burnley, and Newcastle, I'd caution any one looking at the schedule and thinking we've got several "easy" matches to start. We must improve the quality of the squad before then or we might have a real rough start.
John Boon

Only one thing to really remember. We have to play each team twice.Same for all the others.
Andrew Ellams

There will be times of the season when it's more beneficial to play certain teams due to form, injures etc. but it's not worth trying to predict that now.

Saying that, I tip us to win the league at Anfield against an already relegated Liverpool team in late April.
