    Default New season ahead...

    The new football season is almost upon us and I am planning away trips.

    As we have another season in the championship there is only 1 ground I haven't done so I will be seeing the delights of Millwall!

    The 3 promoted teams offered nothing new, same with the 3 relegated teams so it looks like I will do a couple of revisits this season - unless the cups throw anything interesting my way.

    Anybody else got any trips planned yet?


    I am a salmon !!

    Err yes, avoiding match days!!
    Now that Wolves are in Division One it means there are less games on a Saturday at 15:00 which is a real boon for me.
    I hope none of the Millwall supporters are as stupid as David Cameron and think you're West Ham supporters!

    Hi Del,

    I did, but current job's future looks bleak so I will have to see. I am a Villa season ticket holder, so it is their games that interest me the most (and I will aim for the grounds that I have never been to - like you, Millwall is the only one - or seen Villa at first). Hope to be at Hull and Yeovil (been to but not to see Villa). I also keep an eye out for Walsall games and the NPL teams locally: Hednesford, Rushall etc.

    Only one new ground for me this season as well - the new Spurs stadium - and I'm unlikely to get to it as we play them on Boxing Day, when I'll almost certainly be in Holland. I did manage to tick off a new ground on Friday thanks to a dismal friendly against Bristol City - squeezed in a very good 18 pub crawl as well, obviously!

    Last season, I only managed to get to one match outside of London (Southampton), so the aim to to try and make a few longer trips, with Wolves, Cardiff, Liverpool and Brighton top of the wish list.

    Brighton's park and ride is hell - get there early! Wolvo gets busy on match days - I am sure i have seen Aqualung in the Great Western on a match day chuntering about the devil's sport as service slows to accommodate the influx of mini-Beelzebubs that beat him to the bar

    You could always do the Bermondsey Beer Mile if going to the New Den....or instead of.
