    Thanks!

    Not done a preview before. Guess I could test the waters with Stevenage in the MooMoo cup?

    Skyla if I'm still around can I do Boro at the end of what is hopefully a season of success. :) Thanks.

    Thanks for the listing.

    The fixtures don't fit in with my planned trips to Blighty, which is a shame.
    We wanted Southampton and Plymouth away prior to mid November.
    Oh well.

    Bagsy the Harrogate game, when we’ve dropped to their level.

    Eastleigh away sounds good too. Muddy pitch, slip and slide down the wings, no roofing for away support. Cold burger and warm Pepsi at HT, coats down for goal posts and no VAR. Proper football.

    I live in Devon and it’s earlier enough in the season to not be deflated so I’ll take Plymouth on the 12th

    Thanks as always Skyla, for your efforts on this thread and so many others.

    Slightly puzzling as to why we've had so few takers thus far; perhaps symptomatic of the state of the Club?

    If any of you are toying with the idea of putting your name against a fixture, but find it a little bit daunting, here are some words of comfort. Your preview may well be utterly, utterly shyte, but as with a Best Man speech everyone is rooting for you, and you'll get a tumultuous (virtual) round of applause at the end.

    Perhaps extend an invite to ArgyleGreen to 'do a Filbert' for our away fixture down there? He/she/they seems/seem like a jolly good egg...

    I've not done one before, but put me down for WBA away on April Fool's Day. (For 30+ years it was my nearest ground.)

    Thank you, appreciate the kind words.

    Yes that's a good idea, it's always nice having an actual fan of the opposition writing it, as obviously they know their club a lot more than we would.

    Penned myself to do Cov away before the first Int. break. Let's hope we go into that with more than 4 points.

    If anyone wants to do the next one please do.

    As always, Skyla, your efforts are mahusively appreciated, by myself and many others.

    Not quite sure why there have been so few takers this season thus far; maybe a sign of the malaise about OUR club at the moment?

    If we get to 48 hours before any game and nothing has been started, I'll ease the burden on you by starting a non-researched thread.

    I can easily find a brief, opening gambit about most clubs and their towns/citehs in the EFL, I'm sure.

    Thank you again.

    Yours etc.

    BTW

    Big Watford Love
