Happy with Fleetwood at home to start, should avoid defeat which will mean it would be 25 league games unbeaten.

Would guess 7-800. Possibly more as it's a new ground for many I suspect. We'll travel well to Charlton, Millwall and Gills and also to grounds that are new to most (eg Peterborough). Less well to those we've met recently in League 2 particularly Bury and Scunthorpe Tuesday games, Shrewsbury, Chesterfield etc. The big unknown will be Franchise away. Facebook suggests it's a yes for our younger fans and a no from our older fans.

Charlton and Sheffield Utd away at decent times. Franchise at home on a Tuesday is a good thing. Can't imagine we'll give them any seats but who knows...

I can see us taking at least a 1000 to Wallsall.

With the excitement of the playoff final win at Wembley, I would not be surprised to see us have a lot of newer fans, or old fans returning.

God only knows where they will go for home games as they will all sell out for the early part of next season.

Well, going through that fixture list really hits home that we're back in L1.

Some games I'm happy with, some not. Away for both festive fixtures, some long treks on Tuesday nights but happy with Bury away on the opening day and Swindon at home on the final day.

Looking at it, you would think the first two months are quite favourable to us, we shall see.

Rochdale away, again, to open. Third year running. Ridiculous.
More inevitable than ridiculous...:)

Bradford at home on the last day should be a cracking atmosphere. And we actually get to visit Gillingham in daylight (can you see.Belgium from the top of the scaffolding?)

I notice our Valentine's Day trip to Horwich kicks off at 20:00. Have Sky got in already, or is this a local shibboleth?

New ground, first AFCW game in League One, quite easy to get to. Ticks all the boxes and could be well into four figures.

Southend,Swindon,Bristol Rovers and Shrewsbury all away midweek that's shite although I suppose it saves travelling on a Saturday a long way I'll probably only bother with southend out of those lot. Happy all 3 London trips are Saturdays though. Decent 1st match should be a few thousand travelling. Miss Gillingham away cos England are in slovakia so that's a bonus. No travelling on boxing day or new years Eve too also a bonus.

Often stop off at random places on the way to games, and on the way back.

Remember we organised a coach to go to Norwich once, on the way back we ended up in some lovely little neighbourhood in Thetford with a nice pub. A few elderly couples eating their Saturday supper, their faces when 40 odd blokes from London pile in.

All part of the away day for me, little detours like that.

I'm from London, just live in Sheffield.
I wasn't claiming Charlton's in Kent, just that the majority of their fans live there
Fair enough mate, I was being tongue in cheek with the northerner bit.
Some of their 'fans' live in Kent but not as many now they aren't bussing as many in each week.
