It’s usually the way to be fair when the fixture lists are released for the coming season, but Crystal Palace fans certainly reacted with a variety of responses to how the 2018/19 Premier League year has shaped itself out for us this season.

An opening day London derby against Play-Off promoted Championship side Fulham at Craven Cottage awaits Roy Hodgson and the boys but of particular concern to many were the three fixtures faced in the month of November.

It Felt Like It Might Not Happen For A While – Crystal Palace’s 2018/19 Premier League Fixtures

That month sees us travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea, we host Tottenham Hotspur and complete the month with a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United. Possibly the toughest run as a block of fixtures we face in the campaign depending on your outlook on life.

Others had their own gripes.

The festive fixture crunch in December always takes attention and the crush begins with Manchester City on the 22nd, Cardiff on Boxing Day, Chelsea three days later and newly promoted Wolves on New Year’s Day.

You know at least one of those will switch to make life more difficult for us.

The season does give a more favourable run-in though – at least on paper.

Just have to make it happen now!
