    Embarassing the Wobby has been hooked by this. Same thing comes around every year.

    They need the clicks to keep the advertising revenue coming in!

  4. It seems the 2020/21 Championship games have also been leaked. We are scheduled to be playing in the evening KO vs Derby.
    No sign of L**** so I assume they will be relegated though they could be a Sunday fixture. Looks like Lincoln achieve 2 successive promotions.
    Remember you heard it here first.

    Saturday 15th August

    12.30 Birmingham vs Preston NE
    15.00 Fulham vs Middlesbro
    15.00 Lincoln City vs Millwall

    As regular as reports of the first Great White Shark sighting of the year or the first dismal Xmas theme park in a muddy field.

    Would we form a guard of honour as they leave the tunnel?

    That would be good. Anything to soften them up before Capoue gets to work on their ankles.

    It's almost like the TV companies take weeks to work out the fixtures and it's never ever decided when they are released. Ever.

  15. I think defeats vc MC have been "rebased" now.
    Defeats by 1-4 are now "narrow"
    5-7 are "well beaten"
    8+ are "spankings".

    We’ve got Norwich. I got my dog to pick from a list. She does it for all the teams and is employed by the premier league, that’s how they produce the fixtures, not by some big powerful computer thingamajig

    I have seen the list. Not that list, the real one.

    We've got Southampton and Villa up first.

    Well as we never beat Southampton it's a bad game to start with if true ..

    It'll be Newcastle H or A. For some reason the fixture computer and cup draw luck seems to lump us together often. Why break with tradition?

    We've got Brighton at home....exactly the same as last season.

    Everton is our first away game. Sheff Utd away on Boxing Day, but Wolves at home on New Years Day.

    Arsenal away on the final day.

    So the first 6 are this:- Brighton (h ), Everton (a ), West Ham (h ), Newcastle (a ), Arsenal (h ), Man City (a ).

    It's good to see we're not playing any of the newly promoted teams early on. They usually catch a few out in their opening fixtures before falling away.

    A complete list here:-

    No we haven't. It's West Ham (h).

    I would agree with you but there is no point both of us being wrong.

    What happened to keeping it vaguely local on Boxing Day? Sheffield United away is a bit of a distance!

    Hopefully we don’t need points going into the last two games of City at home and Arsenal away....

    It's a fairly kind looking fixture list, in terms of when we play our matches. It has the same look to it as all our previous seasons. We have an opportunity to start well, but are almost certainly going to end it badly. I hope we're well clear before those May games.

    First 5 away games look tough, but games against the top six seem nicely spread out.
