1st game away to Liverpool - he will want to put one over them after the Riise / golf club business etc.
2nd game home to Newcastle - he hates them as much as we do.
3rd game away to Swansea - he's a Cardiff lad.
Three straight wins, 9 points and top of the table by end of August. Sets us up nicely for the Chelsea home game, full of confidence. It's a sound plan that can't fail.
