Tough start for Baggies
The fixtures for the 2008/09 Premier League season have just been published and its a tough start for the Baggies with an away game to Arsenal up first.
It will be an interesting comparison as West Brom were described as the Arsenal of the Championship last season as their slick passing game is reminiscent of the North Londoners.
The first home game will be against Everton, another tricky one. The Everton game is followed by a trip to Gary Megson's Bolton which I am sure is a game that most Baggies fans will look out for.
The local derby against Villa will be played on 20 September at the Hawthorns with the return fixture held on 10 January 2009.
Zoltan Gera will make his return to the Hawthorns on 4 October.
Of course all of the fixtures are subject to date and time changes so don't write them in your diaries just yet!
