All gone a bit quiet on here, hasn't it?

In an attempt to inject some enthusiasm, what games are we looking forward to this season then? Despite being a cynical old fart, I love Fixture Release Day. If you'd told me a week ago that in seven days' time I'd be getting excited about planning a potential mini-break in somewhere like Portsmouth, I'd have had you sectioned, but here I am doing just that, and also booking a hotel for the trip to Sheffield Wednesday and examining train prices to Derby. Non-football fans would never visit these places for pleasure.

What's on your hit list for the season ahead?

So looking forward to popping over to Derby, only to see they have scheduled it for a day I am away with work. Hoping it gets moved to Sunday for TV.

Derby is the only ground I haven't been to with Oxford. I went there once when we had a game against Burton on a Saturday moved to the Sunday as Derby had Stoke at home in the FA Cup, and as I had the trains booked, I went to that match (as well as going back to Burton on the Sunday).

Sadly it clashes with Guildford beer festival which I have committed to going to, and it looks like there are already Championship fixtures on the Friday evening and Sunday, so I can't see the game being moved for tv. I reckon there will be some sort of takeover at Derby so they can start the season.

I was wondering when, if ever, we've been scheduled to start the league season in July? I've always rather resented it starting in August given sports clashes ... Couldn't find a relevant ad hoc query on the RageOn stats pages, can't find my Complete Record and haven't the energy to go through season-by-season.

Edit: seems not - can't see anything earlier than 3rd Aug.
