CALLUM HURLEY, MATCH- GOING SUPPORTER SINCE 2000 This season will be different to last because
at the helm we have a Premier League winner who has had success with clubs at our level.
Keep an eye out for
Declan Rice. He broke through due to injuries in our defence but could establish himself as our best academy product since Mark Noble.
The opposition player I secretly admire is
Christian Eriksen. I feel very conflicted about enjoying watching a Spurs player so much.
Save the date for
potential home wins against Bournemouth (on August 18) and Wolves (September 1), as they could be our only points before October due to a ludicrously tough start.
The best away fans are

the distance from the pitch at the London Stadium may seem excessive, but Upton Park was steeper than you’d think, so we’re just as far away as ever.
One change I would make at our club is

This season we will finish
eighth: steady improvement under better management from top to bottom.
FFT asks: How important is the signing of Lukasz Fabianski?
Adrian needs competition and the Joe Hart experiment was an unfortunate failure. I’d have loved us to sign Jack Butland, though.
