Haven't we asked the league to organise the first couple of fixtures as away games due to the closure of Bolton station?
I really hope that's not true. We got relegated last time we did that!!

Iles, Jun 14: "The closure of Bolton train station for a fortnight at start of season 'might' be factored in by EFL but no request from #bwfc to play away."

I was going to suggest the usual jolly boys outing to the first and last away games. I'll deffo be going to Burton, but there's no 4ucking way on earth will I be visiting those Neanderthal, violent, thuggish, loutish, 4ucking c*nts in August.

Looking down the list is a bit scary to be honest. Brings home how much we've got left to do in improving the squad.

The first match of the season being held late afternoon on a Sunday is a bit shit.

Usual slight concern about publishing the fixtures on here, which Football DataCo may not be ecstatic about.

Leeds, late on a (possibly sunny) Sunday afternoon, I'm sure it'll all be dandy. But on the no-trains thing - isn't that Aug 12 to 28? It said so in the BN – which would mean it's the Derby game that's affected.

Sunderland away on a Tuesday night: The Stadium of Lights. Middlesbrough away on Boxing Day. There's a present nobody wanted.

As for personal attendance, I'm whacking all the possibles in the calendar, and I reckon with a fair wind I might be able to add another eight new grounds – as well as going back to some I haven't visited for two decades (Hillsborough, Elland Road).

Decent fixtures overall I think....I don't think that we could have hoped for much better(IMO)

I'm up for that.

Two winnable opening games there I reckon. Decent start.

Surely there's no IP in a list of events?!

I was going to suggest Bruce's post be pinned somehow so it's easy to find.
