A tough looking start to season
A tough looking start was given us today when the fixtures machine churned out the 2006/7 Premiership games
. I won't be planning any trips back home just yet as Sky, BBC, Uncle Tom Cobbly and all will have their little say in changing games to suit them and not the fans.
West Ham away on the opening day, August 19th, followed by home games against Man Utd and then Bolton on my birthday. Then after the opening two European Championship qualifiers (England play Andorra at home and Macedonia away) we visit lucky hunting ground Stamford Bridge!
A bit of other Addick news today was that 19-year old French defender Kelly Youga signed a new two-year contract
. Youga follows a healthy trend of young hopefuls signing extended deals recently after Darren Randolph, Rob Elliot, Nathan Ashton, Michael Carvill, Myles Weston and Alistair John all signed new contracts. Dowie wasn't scared at Palarce to play up and coming youngsters, so let's hope we see one or two of these names in the first team squad next season.
