Personally, I will be looking out for:

Crawley (don't think we've ever played them?)
Barnet (not yet been to the Hive)
Leyton Orient (I live a full 3 miles from the ground)
York (have been meaning to go ever since they got back into the league, never managed it though)

I'll probably do others too, but those are the certs for now.

Get yourself to York, it will be the last chance to see us at Bootham Crescent before we disappear to some generic bowl in a shopping centre.

I'll probably get to Notts County and Leyton Orient if I can, and would like to do Portsmouth again. Carlisle and Hartlepool, and maybe Oxford. Probably one or two others but it's not that inspiring next season.

I don't go to many away matches but I hope to get to York. I had a train ticket to get there a few years back but the match was called off the day before due to snow.

Leyton Orient, Barnet and Crawley are possible. Never been to Orient, went to Underhill a few years back and not been to Crawley since 2009.

Of all the " northern teams" Mansfield is the only one I've not been to, I was going to do it last year , but our woeful team didn't justify the expense and giving up some Christmas time..... One of these days I'll go and see a match at Exeter as opposed to driving past it on other matters!

Last season I did 42 league games and I want to beat that this season, But it depends on who are our Tuesday away games. I almost hope it's something ridiculous, If they put York or County on a Tuesday it will ruin the only good 2 away days we have. Can't see County being a midweek but York is possible. I'd sooner go to Exeter on a Tuesday than have to play York in the week.

The new grounds I've got to do are Barnet, Yeovil and Orient. I'd probably do Barnet and Orient on a Tuesday but not Yeovil.

I did every match home and away last season but there's no chance I'll be doing that again.

I'll miss out all the northern games apart from Notts (new ground) unless there is actually something riding on one of them or for a first/last game of the season.

Probably will do all the others. Barnet, Orient, Notts and Crawley need to be done for the new grounds. Looking forward to Newport, Yeovil & Rovers from the ones I've done before.

Will aim for as many as I can, and will depend on how the fixtures land but will be looking out for Notts County, Orient, Bristol Rovers and York particularly.

As for me - Leyton Orient is a ten minute cycle from my house, we have to win at Daggers some time, I'm looking forward to going back to Stevenage for a bit of local rivalry and Cambridge Utd and Portsmouth are grounds I haven't visited yet. I might do Notts County as well.
Grounds that I've visited before but probably won't do are Luton, Oxford, Northampton and Crawley which don't really warrant another visit, Wycombe as it takes an hour to get out of the estate where the ground is and AFC Wimbledon as it's just not an appealing ground for away fans.

Depends on the fixture list.

I need a bit of luck to tie in with a few days up north in August. Tuesday nights at Morecambe and/or Carlisle would be nice. Just don't give me a peach fixture to clash with Patterdale sheepdog trials.


Away most of October and (as usual) will miss first round FA Cup but a nice away tie in the 3rd (or even 4th) round would give the Abbey re-development some added momentum.

I'll hope to fit in at least 12 away league matches and Hartlepool, Carlisle, Morecambe and SW tour of Portsmouth, Plymouth, Exeter and Yeovil are top of the longer distance to do list - if the fixture gods are kind. Orient have leapt above Northampton and Luton as favourite local opposition.

Always look for double headers with Barrow the only near miss last season was Stockport and Old Trafford but that fell by the wayside.

I will do Bristol Rovers, Yeovil and possibly Argyle if I fancy getting abused by the classy locals.....

I will also look to do one 'Northern' ground, maybe Accy which I have yet to visit.

Orient, Crawley, Yeovil, Notts County, Barnet and Cambridge are the only ones I haven't done in the league so will hopefully do all of them

As a Welsh Cambridge fan, most of my away days are in the west. So Newport, Bristol, Exeter, Plymouth, Yeovil, and a bit further east like Oxford, maybe Wycombe. All depends on the fixture list for me as I can't afford too many in close proximity to each other

Will go to Hartlepool, obviously. For no other reason than to witness Rakish Bingham.

When you get the chance to see one of the game's greats at the pinnacle of his career, you don't pass it up.

You can't afford top quality players AND comfort for fans ... One or the other !! ... If anyone from darn saarff can only make Carlisle OR Hartlepool, pains me to say it but, go to Carlisle , thier main stand is a joy to see, especially when fullish.

I usually,whenever possible, choose the few away games I can make not on our opponents or location or some other thing, but on whose ground I've yet to visit.

Number one on my list is Pools, and not for the reason some of you guys think:told: It was no. 1 last year too, as I have never been up there, but decided not to go at the last moment. The game was taking place only a few days after the attack on Simon Dobbin at Southend, and I wasn't comfortable with myself enjoying a football match while a fellow U was fighting for his life.

As for the others, I'm looking forward to Orient and Notts, as it's been quite a while since we last played there. Obviously, the games at Barnet, Stevenage and Luton will also be on my list, but won't feel too disappointed if it won't be possible for me to go.
