    Guess our first fixture in 2018-2019

    Post by RRC on Thu 14 Jun 2018, 1:31 pm

    The new fixture list is due out next Thursday, 21 June.

    Who do you think we'll get first?

    Which club would you prefer?


    My guess is Middlesbrogh away, a tough one.

    I'd prefer Rotherham at home and (hopefully) a confidence-boosting win.

    At least one of our midweek evening matches will be as far away as possible.

    One of the relegated sides probably. I'll go with Swansea away. I don't really care who we get first to be honest as it'll probably take a few games for the team to find their feet.

    It has to be Stoke on on live tv, on the friday night.

    I'd take anybody at home to be honest, but Stoke would be lovely.

    Stoke away on the Friday night as the fixture has the sort of background spice that will appeal to Sky. The man who turned his back on one club to join another versus the very club he walked out on whose new manager was a (world) class act as a player now in his very first managerial position.

    "Moneybags" v the "paupers".

    Sky will be creaming themselves to broadcast this as the season's opener IMO.
