In that rather strange lull before the fixture storm, and as the editor is still Sudafeded up (not to mention being hot and sweaty all day, and not in a good way either), SW19 is about to make some predictions for who we’re going to play, and when.
First game : Chester away
First home game: Rushden and Diamonds (first midweeker of the season)
Last game of the season: Stevenage home
Last away game of the season: Eastbourne Borough
Xmas/New Year games: Handy (home on Boxing Day)
August Bank Holiday/Easter games: Crawley (away on August Bank Holiday)
Game nearest your editor’s birthday (25/10): Altrincham home
Away at Luton: 5 December
Away at Oxford: 20 March
Tune in at this time tomorrow, see how wrong I got it.
Also, the club has a podcast up. Nothing you didn’t really know already, although it is rather an interesting move by TB to play two sets of 11 for the Wycombe and Brighton games. I know he’s telling us not to panic if we lose 7-0, but somehow you get the feeling it will be a bit of a dent to our psyche if we did…
