So, who do you all want first game of the season?
Give us Leeds at home and I'll be happy.
home would be nice
so that we can batter them and give ourselves a confidence boost to start to the season.
Can't we forget about football for 6 weeks?
(I know the answer to this)
I renewed my season ticket today. Only 30 days to go til our first pre-season friendly.
Why the fuck do they bother with the end of the season?
we needed last season to end.
was the most painful game ever to watch, i almost cried when the fifth goal went in
Just to put an end to any optimism they might have.
Sp wasn't intentional but I left it anyway.
Can guarantee Mark Viduka will be injured.
Um, Norwich away. That's sutiably shit.
just had a look to see who I would be happy to play first day, and the answer is I'm not sure. I'd say home to Scunthorpe or Bristol City, but they'll be bang up for their first game. Maybe Barnsley...
The champions always get a promoted side first day.
That's not a bad fixture. Atleast it's not a newly promoted side which I always dread us playing at any point in the season.
fulham are my 4th team. I still want to see us humiliate them though.
15 minutes to wait now!
League 1 ones up too
Chelsea Vs Derby would be a nice one for me to view.
Bet we get Arsenal though....
always get a promoted team, so I reckon it'll be United vs Sunderland
well done Jack
the crap did you do that, Jack_El_UriGeller?
with getting Leeds at home early on in the season (25th Aug).
And getting home fixture to kick off and also finish the season is always a bonus too :)
must have been having a right laugh when Yeovil came out.

To be Arranged
Newcastle United (
surprise fucking surprise
Wigan and united at home in the same month. Oh yes.
I can sleep safely tonight now
sleep until you see when Saints have got Norwich
I was close with my prediction
Second game of the season
Stupid Premier League.
That is pretty shabby, to be honest. Who does it involve? I'm guessing it isn't Birmingham v Derby or anything...
should be interesting to see how the fans & players react on big Sams return, especially as he wouldn't have put his mark on the toon yet.
we'll lose that game.
3 days after a looong away trip to carlisle, haha, what a coincidence!
tough start too...
but leeds at home only a couple of weeks into the season!
That's actually the worst possible fixture in my view. Told you we always start with a shit game.
Apart from two seasons ago where we started with Reading away and won! Only team to win at Reading that season.
And I wouldn't lie about Reading anyway, they are my second team.
i'm looking forward to the farsley-york derby so much.
Should make up for missing it at the end of last season when I shagged my foot in and coult walk/drive.
and then spank you 3-0 :D
Apparently that Northampton full back Crowe turned us down today too. Obviously the Chuckle Brothers Doughty and Arthur made a big impression on him too.
you will spank us.
But, its still a great away trip
I think it will be a tough season for you lot though now Hayter and Fletcher have gone.
we still have 8 players on the books so we will be fine.
Two of them keepers
Nothing to worry about there
