"Sky Bet League 1", urgh. I'll stick with calling it the Third Division, ta all the same. :lol:

A lot of northern away trips there, but at least some of them are relatively new. Blackburn and Wigan are ones I'd like to tick off. Hoping we can also continue our record of beating superior sides at their own ground in the first round of the League Cup as well. Dates for the first-round draw still TBC - but league fixtures will be released on 21st June.

Blackburn and Wigan new for me too. Still not got to Oldham and Fleetwood yet either (thanks to Tuesday night games last time around). Plus Doncaster's "new" (well, only ten years old) ground. So a few places for me to see this season.

Six grounds I haven't been to (Blackburn, Blackpool, Fleetwood, Doncaster, Shrewsbury and MK), though only four clubs. Am keen to get to Ewood Park, and would like to make Bloomfield Road too. The fixtures will have to be very kind for me to do either though in reality.

It's all too bloody Northern again - was really hoping Exeter would make it through the play-offs. Only Three clubs in the 'South and West' section (and only one in the actual South West)!

Blackburn Rovers, Blackpool, Doncaster Rovers, Oldham Athletic, Wigan Athletic are all new away opponents for me with OUFC. I did tick off Ewood Park the other year when our away match got called off vs Accrington, and I already had the train tickets pre-booked so went to see Blackburn QPR instead.

For me, new grounds will be Blackburn, Blackpool, Doncaster and Wigan.

With a little luck I should have at least 70 of the 92 completed by the end of next season.

Surprised none of you have been to Wigan, as we played there twice at the start of the Noughties.

I witnessed a particularly poor 2-0 defeat at the JJB stadium (as I think it was called then) in front of under 5,000 spectators. They only bothered opening two stands iirc. Jamie Cook put in one of the least convincing performances I'd ever seen in a yellow shirt.

Really? There's a fair bit of competition for that honour.

Note the tense used! Obviously there have been plenty of worse ones since then...
