    Liverpool - Premier League opener at Anfield - expecting a drubbing but not 3-0 after 30 minutes! To be fair, we're playing well...

    I'd have taken 4-0 at full time. Half time, ouch! To be fair, Liverpool are just a different class. Their value 976.28m. Norwich 83.12m. I don't expect us to beat Liverpool, Man City, Tottenham etc - but I think we have a fair chance against the bottom third, and ambitions this year just have to be to survive, which is going to be a huge challenge in itself such is the gulf.

    Well the second half we did much better - no more goals conceded and we got one back - 4-1 against the European Champions at Anfield is no disgrace and I am super proud of the team. Super proud. Bring on Newcastle next.

    Ah, didn't expect that to be happening midweek. Is that normal? I thought the first league fixtures always kicked off on a Saturday? That's what happens in Scotland.

    Anyway, not to worry - you won the second half! And your season will be defined by games against other teams than Liverpool

    Dunno, thought it was usually Saturday but who knows with Sky!

    LFC beat West Ham 4-0 in last season's opener at Anfield, and Barcelona 4-0 in May, so we did better than both of them! Think they also beat Arsenal 5-0 last season, so not going to panic after one game, and Anfield is a fortress! Best unbeaten home run anywhere I believe across all the top leagues.

    last time liverpool played norwich in the opener at anfield liverpool won the league so maybe their year. norwich are a decent honest side and havent gone mental with buying, unlike Villa. it will be interesting to see who comes out best

    So the traditional kick-off time for a new season, unfurling of league flags, etc (3pm on a Saturday), is something else that's been spoiled by the money men!

    And normally such games aren't televised live... Does anyone know how long that's been happening in England? As far as I was aware, their league games kicked off the weekend after the Scottish ones, so something has changed?

    Anyway, I certainly wouldn't worry about losing to Liverpool, as I suspect that most teams will suffer a similar fate this season. I'll be looking forward to your games against Leicester - and hoping you can get one over BR!
