Premiership fixtures released this morning

Looking at the fixture list Leeds will be at home for the first game of the season & also at ER on Boxing Day when the championship fixtures are announced next Thursday :-D

How did you deduce that Leon ? Is it because Hudds are at home on those days and WYP do not let us play at home on same day ?
LEEDS AND FOREVER PROUD TO BE !!

Unsure if it is a police policy but over the years teams such as :

Leeds/Huddersfield
City/Man U
Everton/Liverpool
Spurs/Arsenal
etc, one plays at home the other away

One of the relegated sides, WBA , Stoke or Swansea and to give them a good hiding and send out a strong message to the rest of the Championship.

West Brom would be a good test to begin the new campaign

alternatively

Rotherham would hopefully be a three pointer game
