With all league One teams now confirmed for the 2016/17 season, which fixture are you most looking forward to?

I would say Bolton at home is the first fixture I'll be looking out for.. Nailed on to be moved to a lunchtime kick off but Gigg will be rocking. Have a feeling everyone will turn out for this game, hopefully we get a result. The away game will still be decent but with the Macron being out of town with no pubs nearby it lessens the enjoyment somewhat.

Also will be looking forward to the Bristol Rovers away game.. Not the best ground but if the weathers right it will be a great day out on the piss. Same with Millwall, Charlton and Wimbledon.

Charlton, obviously. Local games and a guaranteed 4-6 points.

Entering our 4th season in L1, and I must say, it's all becoming a bit meh.

There's only the Bolton and Charlton games I'm personally looking forward to.

We haven't been to Bolton since Boxing Day 1998 and Charlton 2000.

The Valley is a ground I've always wanted to visit, so Charlton away first game of the season would be my preference.

Coventry or Bolton away would be nice first up, but even one of the more local games (Swindon, Walsall etc.) would be welcome.

Believe we'll be away first weekend, as the balloon fiesta is 13th and 14th.

When do they come out? 15th June or something isn't it?

Peterborough home and away, I've missed our games against the swamp donkeys, and I think a lot of the older Cobblers fans will be coming out of the woodwork for them.

10 new grounds for me in this division; Bolton, Bury, Charlton, Fleetwood, Millwall, Oldham, Scunthorpe, Sheffield United, Swindon and Walsall. Now I'm back from Uni I hope to get to all of the away games at those clubs.

I'm also looking forward to MK and Coventry due to their proximity to Sixfields and how easy they are to get to. Anyone excited to come down to San Sixfields?!

Not going to be getting to many Gills games this season, but will try to make the effort for Charlton, Northampton and Oxford away for varying reasons.

22nd June.

Doesn't the balloon fiesta usually affect us being away from home and not you?

If we can't play at home, it follows that rovers will be at home bud. It would be bloody chaos if we were home with our SC sales, roadworks and parking restrictions. I would imagine it's a safe bet the gas will be home on the weekend of the fiesta.

Think I've got 7 new grounds this year, so that'll make a nice change. 'Looking forward to' is a bit strong for Oldham away though, no disrespect.

Swindon home and away. That's it.

Not many really. Bolton will just be full of knobs on either side and Dale is either we play for a draw or we don't turn up and get tonked.

Charlton would be nice to go to though. I can't see us having a great season anyway so just to not have a full on melt down would be nice.

Oh and Leon to stay, my last remaining hero <3

First game of the season, I fancy Oxford away. Make a weekend of it, look round the place, maybe go to the match for a bit of lowbrow contrast.

Of course we'll actually get Posh at home, as usual.

If that's the case, though, last game will be away. Bramall Lane will do; decent ground, not too far.

The fiesta shouldn't have any effect on getting away from the Mem, It's right next door to Ashton Gate which is 7 miles away. The traffic around the Mem on match days is always bad AFAIK.

TBH, I'm not looking forward to your visit. I normally steward at the main road for a while and I really don't want to witness a brawl as there was last time you visited - I was off duty that day but I've been given a blow-by-blow account.

If you get a ticket. Away allocation is about 900, and the view from the terrace is shit. Here's hoping that Sadiq Khan does the right thing and approves our new ground.

I don't do many away matches, but I'm looking forward to Charlton.

I've no issues getting a ticket mate. I would imagine demand will be pretty high for this game though. Charlton aways a good trip I've always enjoyed it.

I've not been to Bolton since we won at Burnden Park in the cup 19 years ago so that's one I'm interested in.

I've been on that motorway past it loads of times. It doesn't appear to be close to either Bolton or anywhere else apart from a big hill for the matter.

Presumably that's you gripe with it as an away day.

Yeah I went that day and wasn't allowed in the ground until 20 minutes into the game because the stewards/police were dealing with the idiots on the road. Wouldn't base your whole opinion on Bury/our fanbase on it though. I'm sure Wimbledon fans were just as much to blame.
