Tough months in October and February, decent enough start and finish in my eyes...

Well, the 2011-2012 fixtures are out and we're travelling to White Hart Lane on opening day.

If nothing changes during the summer, I'll be extremely doubtful we'll have the hopeful start to our next campaign that we've been talking about for so long now. For those with a statistical bent, here are the results of our visits to Spurs during Moyes's tenure:

23 Oct 2010 Draw 1-1 (League)
28 Feb 2010 Loss 2-1 (League)
27 Oct 2009 Loss 2-0 (Cup)
30 Nov 2008 Win 0-1 (League)
14 Aug 2007 Win 1-3 (League)
26 Aug 2006 Win 0-2 (League)
15 Oct 2005 Loss 2-0 (League)
01 Jan 2005 Loss 5-2 (League)
04 Oct 2003 Loss 3-0 (League)
12 Jan 2003 Loss 4-3 (League)

Looks like a good start is possible. We can beat Spurs whatever the team, what do we all think?

Ok so 15 points from the first 5 games might be a little bit of a stretch, Spurs away on the opening day will be tough, but the next four games ? QPR (h), Blackburn (a), Villa (h) and Wigan (h) most all be classed as winnable ? that would be 12 points from the opening few fixtures and would put us near the top of the tree.

Obviously this will never happen, we are talking about Everton, and an Everton team managed by Moyes (out of curiosity when was the last time we had a decent start to the season?). The point I?m making is with the start to the season we have been handed it is a perfect opportunity for the team to build some foundations and get up a head of steam.

I also though we had a pretty good looking festive period.

Andy, how about 2006-07 when I believe we went the first half-dozen games unbeaten before losing against Middlesbrough?

I think the key point though is since Wigan in 2007, we have lost all our opening day fixtures. That is something which needs to change and a team like Spurs, who Everton know they can beat if they apply themselves correctly as seen in the past few seasons, could give us the good start we need. Too many times last season we failed to win against lower-half teams because we felt all we needed to do to win was turn up.

It depends on how good match practice we get from pre-season! Moyes never learn and I am getting fed up of seeing the same slow poor start each year. When will he start playing against top european sides?

Here we go, I remember seasons gone by people predicting how many pts we will have by such and such a date.

We're playing the shite at home first for the 9th consecutive season in a row.

That's quite surprising considering the fixtures are supposed to be randomly generated by the FA's fixture computer.

Anyone know if there's any genuine reason for this?

Marcus, I understand any Evertonian feeling some trepidation about the start of new season. However, you don't seem to have looked at the stastistics you've included in your post - we've only lost once in the League at White Hart Lane in the last 5 seasons. So your concerns should not be based on our recent league form away to Spurs.

Look at the run through the winter months, if we sort out the problem of beating the lesser teams, we could go into the new year in a great position. Would have liked the QPR and Spurs games to be the other way around to be honest. It'd be great to start with 3 points and they don't come easy at Spurs. Least it's a no pressure situation.

Fuckin annoys me!! Anyone notice the fixture patterns for Everton very rarely change?

The first derby of the season is always at GP in Oct/Nov period, The return leg at Anfield is always Jan or Feb. I can't remember the last time the first derby was at Anfield in a season.

Also very similar patterms with the Man Utd fixtures - always seems to be first game in Sep or Oct with the other at Easter. Other similar patterns too.

I do like the last game of the season to be home - the Boxing Day and New Years Eve fixture are absoulute wank for those who will be travelling on iced up roads and delayed winter trains.

A difficult first away game - but that could work to our advantage - we won't be expected to get much from there (from the bookies point of view anyway) wheres at Blackburn last year we all were expecting a flying start only to be left a long slow bitter taste of form and disappointment..

It doesn't matter who we play in the opening few games.If we don't start with a positive attitude and get some real consistancy from some of the players then it will be tough. We can at first hope that every player will be match fit to start the season so as to hopefully get the ''best eleven'' in winning mode from the getgo. We know they can match strides with the best teams but the let-downs come against those teams outside the top 6. I am hoping that finally Osman can prove he is a top performer after all he has been around a while now and surely he knows what is expected.
After seeing Rodwell for the under 21s I an convinced he should be a center back the way he has filled out. He is not an attacking midfielder as nobhead Pearce has been playing him but more likely a holding player.Hopefully Moyes will not waste him either. Fellaini was starting to show some real ability before his injury last season so hopefully he will also shine next season. Like most teams everything will be a big ''if'' but surely Moyes can get it right for once even without new signings.
