    I always like the first and last game of the season to be at Home. Lets start with an easy one: Peterborough at Home.

    After that I don't mind but I hope we play Derby at Home first not away like last year.

    Carling Cup: Burton Albion at Home please.

    I hope we're away first game because I'll be in Majorca. One of the teams who've just come down would be good as there's a chance it would be on the box.

    I think by the time they're announced we'll have enough threads on here about it for each fixture to have it's own thread.

    10 midweek fixtures! Looks like 'the Duchess' is going to be clocking up a few miles this season.

    I quite enjoyed the comment by the spurs fan at the end of it.

    Well after 4 home fixtures in 17 seasons for spurs on opening day lets hope the "random" computer manages to give us a home game this year.
    Did he even read the bloody article

    He also manually creates the fixtures for Boxing Day and 28 December to try to minimise the travelling distance for fans. As Thompson readily admits, the computer has no concept of the distance between grounds.
    Derby away boxing day anyone?

    That's the kind of thing that USED to happen, and the sort of fixture that SHOULD happen. There's no ******g public transport on a Bank Holiday...it's the only sensible thing to play a local team on one of those days.

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    I think we'll get one of the Sheffield teams on Boxing Day. For some reason we always seemed to get Norwich even though it's forever away.

    I think the reasoning behind us not getting Derby on Boxing Day is...

    1) Boxing Day always gets a good crowd so you wouldn't use up a local derby which would sell out regardless of when it was played
    2) The police would object to having to roster loads of coppers on

    Our midweek fixtures last season involved:

    Preston, Sheffield Weds, Crystal Palace, Doncaster, Ipswich, Watford - AWAY

    and

    Ipswich, Sheff Weds, Sheffield Utd, Preston - HOME

    with Sheffield Utd away on Easter Monday, Doncaster at home on Boxing Day and Norwich away on the 28th December

    It didn't work out too badly but Preston and Ipswich are both a bit of a trek on a Tuesday

    Yup, same here! Also want Boro away at the weekend too. My mate's a Boro fan and is going to Teeside Uni in September, so plan is we crash at his for the weekend! He goes at the end of September though, so any time after then please.

    The thing with Newcastle (and likewise Middlesbrough and Plymouth) is it's a long journey for almost everyone. As a midlands team, I wouldn't be suprised to see midweek trips to St James, Riverside and Home Park on the list, basically because someone has to do it.

    Plymouth away is a minimum 2 hour journey from every other club in the league, and they can't play Bristol City every week

    I think they try and do it the fairest way, so everyone has 1 or 2 long trips, but noone has too many.

    It's usually one of the promoted teams againest one of the big relegated teams for the first game. so Newcastle and Peterbough proberly be againest each other to run it into the toon.

    Forest will proberly get someone like coventry first game.

    I think everyone looks for who we got first, last, boxing day and the game nearest to your birthday for a decent day/night out

    well considering i have work on the 8th till noon i'm hoping that either, we're away, or the game will not be bought forward to twelve so the coppers can have there doughnuts, unless ofcourse i'm sick?

    I'm in France and don't get back until late on 15th - so hopefully we've got someone boring on the opening day & we're away at L'Argyle on 15th so I can go to the game before getting the ferry back home.

    The beast is stirring yet again!! :devil:

    it has nothing to do with football or NFFC

    What makes it worse is that they end up back in Plymouth at the end of the round trip as well.

    I can't wait for the fixtures to come out.

    Have no real preferences apart from that I hope the games on 12th September, 26th September, 12th December and 13th March are away games at grounds that I have been to before as I have friends and family commitments on those days that I can't get out of.

    Missed 4 home games last season for the same reasons and I want to get my money's worth this season!

    Is it the same case this year that we can't publish the fixture list when it comes out?
