huddlesfield or Southampton would be great. (y)

I expect our first 4 or 5 matches to be away fixtures which will allow us some finish touches.

Anyway it's still down to a computer program right?

For West Ham's first season at the London Stadium, their first home games were against Bournemouth, Watford, Southampton, Boro, Sunderland and Stoke to give them time to ensure security and safety measures were operating properly. Arsenal in December was the first 'big' match in the PL although they had played Chelsea in the League Cup. There were numerous problems which had to be resolved concerning the home fans in those opening games.

Surely, the PL will follow a similar policy when drawing up the opening games at the NWHL next season.

First match at the Lane according to Wikipedia was a friendly vs. Notts County in 1899. That would be alright for the first match.

I reckon we could have beaten Chelsea at home last year had we have played them nearer Christmas. The new WHL might not feel like home to the first team until a few matches in.

Huddersfield please, or some other cannon fodder.

Well obviously they didn't - Liverpool, Man City and Chelsea as 3 of the first 4 opponents at NWHL.
