Newcastle's Premier League fixture list announced

New, comment

Steve McClaren may not yet know exactly what his team will look like next season, but he now knows what the season itself has in store.

The Premier League fixture gurus have returned from the mountain top (or Brighton... or Spain... wherever it is they go to do these things) with brand new fixture lists carved into two giant stone tablets.  Well, maybe not quite that exactly, but similar.  So far as we can tell, there are exactly 0 surprise fixtures this season... a random trip to Fulham, for instance, did not make the cut.

Since their return to the Premier League, Newcastle have traditionally been handed a first match against one of the Sky 6.  Manchester City had taken the mantle over the past couple of years which meant that Newcastle were nailed on to start the season with a -4 goal difference.  This year, it is top-of-the table new boys Southampton who will travel to St. James' Park for the opening fixture of the 2015-16 season.

The Tyne-Wear Derby will be March 19, 2016 while it's reverse at the cute stadium with the pink seats will be October 24th.  The highly anticipated road trip to Bournemouth will be November 7.

The holiday program could be worse with Everton (H), West Bromwich Albion (A) and Arsenal (A) filling the festive season.  The Match For Ultimate Survival will be at home again this year with Spurs the opponent.  It seems that it might be a great idea to not leave it to the last day this year.

Here is what the complete list looks like:
