    Fixtures currently being generated on a space station orbiting Mars in a bid to spread the FL brand to a new form of algae they think they might have discovered and then they will be beamed via satellite to a Bolivian township on Wednesday where the FA have decided to announce them. So...
    ...who do you want to face on August 5th? Personally, I'd like an away game close to me. Luton would be nice, as I'm expecting them to win the division and I think getting them out the way before they have time to gel might make the prospect of a point or 3 more realistic.

    I'd like an away game for the novelty factor, we have started every season in the Football League with a home game, the last time we started away from home was at Wrexham in 2008. Even in 2012 when the League Cup was the opening match of the season, we had Wimbledon at home.

    I'm looking for an away game too...as far North has possible. Get it out the way while the Sun's out...as opposed to dark rank November!

    We'll be away, I think we've been away on 6 of the last 8 first/last days of the season.

    Exeter home or away. Meaning we'll have played them 4 times in a row.

    Stoke were given an away fixture on August 12th so we will be at home that Saturday. That means with us starting the week before on the 5th then we will be away first game.

    Yep unless we get Newport Away I guess and that will be swapped due to their stadium work.

    Notts County away is always decent and local or Mansfield as we've only been there once in decades (2003 I think) so would be alright as local. Will probably get an awful Away day like Luton or Crawley or something though.

    Got a feeling we'll get them away Christmas. We usually seem to get an away zinger in December.

    An away game please as I probably can't make the first game of the season, would hate to miss our first game in the Football League if it is at home.

    No way, it's the only place in the country where I'd consider buying stadium food.

    I'd like Celta Vigo away.

    Luton away is unique for me...im not overly religious, but tend to go and pray in the mosque on the corner before heading into the ground - divine intervention and all that...it worked once when Kedwell scored a late winner!! Last few times I spent more time in the pub instead of the mosque and we got beat! Must be something in it!!

    Accrington away, fairly local, winnable and I'd much rather go there in the height of summer than a cold wet November midweek.
