All those looking forward to us will soon realise there are no pubs near the gropund worth a mention and the away end is truly awful. Half of you will get wet and the other half will not see half the pittch. Get one of the seats or prepare to join the long list of people moaning about the match (lack of) experience.

Oxford - proper derby back. We owe them more than one.

Bristol Rovers - local derby, bit more spice than most games.

Wimbledon - glad to have them back.

Sheffield United away stands out for me but just really looking forward to a new division really and visiting some famous old grounds I haven't yet been too. I think come next season I'll have watched a Wimbledon side play in the top 8 tiers of English football, mental!

I won't be at Milton Keynes but that's a personal choice, my way of doffing my cap to those fans of other clubs who refused to watch their team their during the boycott. I'll switch off and do something else that particular match day.

To echo others Wombles here, the away end at Kingsmeadow is awful, in fact the home fans in the Your Golf travel stand also have a restricted view. Get into the ground early and stand near the pitch side barrier. You'll get a pitch level view but you'll at least be able to see the whole pitch.

We desperately need a new ground and have done since the National League and if agreed Plough Lane won't be ready until the 2018/19 season.

I'm looking forward to knocking a few off my list in Sheffield United, Cov, Bolton & Charlton (last three have all changed grounds since i last went there) plus the standard Swindle, Oxford, Walsall and Shrewsbury (weetabix) games and I'm also hoping the other London trips we have are not on a Tuesday night. I'm also trying to decide on which one will be my random game to go to its between Scunny, Fleetwood, Bradford or Oldham?

Bolton is a good away day, train to Manchester, drinking in Manchester and then a 15 minute train to Horwich and it's a 2 minute walk to the ground, piece of piss.

Nah, it'll be at KM as per our first match in L2. I'll take a draw :)
It will have to be at ours because the bloody balloon festival is on. The peasants will have to be away so the Mem it is!

I can only assume you all thought we had gone up?

We may also have the smallest capacity to ever grace league 1.

Yeah, sounds right.

I was surprised you haven't been to The Valley but just checked and you've only played there twice since we moved back and they were both Tuesday nights I believe, thought it was more than that but even the game in 92, the season in which we moved back was at Upton Park.

Welcome aboard, always good to see another Womble on here.

I've been to Gillingham twice. Never seen Oxford score, rained on two times.

Will definitely not be going again!

Personally being based in Sheffield Sheffield United away will be a nice easy one, looking forward to going to all of the Manchester suburbs.

When you've been to one you've been to them all tbh.

Cheeky fooker!
Seen the new Gate in person yet methane snorter? ;)
Thought I'd gotten away with that one :whistle: I haven't been yet mate and I avert my eyes if I'm on the downs. Hopefully see it in person next season although with having 20000 people wanting to rip my head off I might struggle to appreciate the aesthetics :lol:

20,000? That's one hell of a big segregation space then! :eyes:
You might draw us in a cup, you never know. That's if you're still in either of them by the time we enter. :hypo:

That's not really going to Bolton though if you're staying in Manchester till after 2pm.

Bolton, Charlton and Wimbledon away all appeal.
I'm off the South East Asia for 6 months In Jan so hoping couple of those are before I go.

Struggling after that really. No new grounds either.

Some new grounds for me so they stand out already. Bolton, Coventry, Oldham, Peterborough, Sheffield Utd, Walsall. Plus the Millwall and Charlton derbies will be good, and Oxford away is good for a drink-up. Special mention to Gillingham, our last two games there fantastic.
