Premier League fixtures for 2010/11 announced
The fixture list for 2010/11 have just been announced and it already looks like a fasciniting season ahead for Liverpool and Manchester United.
After a disastrous season last year and now without a manager (Rafa Benitez was effectively sacked and has since moved to European champions Inter Milan), Liverpool – a club that many people feel is in turmoil as they plunge further into debt under the stwardship of their American owners – will be hoping for a better 2010/11 season. They start the season at home to Arsenal over the weekend of August 14th (some dates will change due to TV and this particular match looks a certainty to be shown on Sky Sports). Other early season opponents at Anfield include West Brom, Sunderland and Blackpool.
Manchester United lost out in the title race to a strong Chelsea side and many feel that Alex Ferguson hasn’t done enough to replace superstar winger Christiano Ronaldo. Many United supporters feel that Ferguson’s hands are tied, also because of another reviled American owner – The Glazer family – and are worried to see their club plunge further into debt. A takeover looks unlikely in the short term, although the campaigners wearing the Green and Gold scarves (the original colours worn by Manchester United) will hope to pour on the pressure and drive Glazer away from Old Trafford. Supporters are uneasy by the massive debt and inevitable challenge of neighbours Manchester City.
Manchester United start their premier league campaign with a tantalising match against newly promoted Newcastle United, with other early home games in Manchester against West Ham, Liverpool and Sunderland.
Serviced City Pads will be dealing with many supporters who follow both teams from afar. We find that there are many Manchester United fans who travel to Manchester from Southern Ireland and stay in Manchester for the weekend. The same applies to fans of Liverpool FC, but there are also a number of scandinavian fans who stay in Liverpool for 2 or 3 days either side of watching a premier league match.
As Serviced City Pads have now launched the SCP rewards club, it makes perfect sense to join the club now (it doesn’t cost anything) and then book your accommodation in Manchester for every home match throughout the season. You will be rewarded for every night accommodation that you book with us. To find out more click here.
We also find that if you are a group wishing to stay in Manchester it makes better sense to stay in a Manchester serviced apartment rather than staying in a manchester hotel. The apartment option offers more space and means you can have a beer together as a group before you go out for the evening. It offers a more communal and less formal atmosphere than the 4 walls of a hotel room. A serviced apartment in manchester – for a group stay – will also generally work out to be better value for meny than booking a hotel in Manchester.
So if you are looking to book a short stay in Manchester, you should contact Serviced City Pads straight away. We are the specialist serviced apartment booking company with a wide range of great value serviced apartments in Manchester.
