The waiting is almost over. After a flurry of signings, a successful pre-season and the overwhelming belief that this is really your season, football fans are high on optimism as they eagerly await the start of the Premier League . unless of course you’re a Southampton fan, in which case you’re probably hating football right now.
Luckily for everybody, there is no need to scramble around to find out when your team’s games are for August, as Paddy Power is making sure you won’t miss a kick. But unlike most fixture lists we’ve gone one step further. We’ve trawled through the TV guide to pinpoint each time you might have to face a remote battle against the other half, family members or soap-obsessed maniacs in your living room. This should give you ample time to prepare for those battles, ensure the remote is well hidden, or if you’re being super-sneaky, just get rid of the batteries.Or even better, hit the pub.
Soak it up folks. Football is back.
