I was going to try and be funny by using the first letters of our opponents to spell something but I can't think of anything. Not helped by the way with only having one vowel to work with. Trust Ipswich to get promoted. I'll have another go later. Word with 5 letters, one vowel O. SBL came down from PL, PDO promoted from L1. Championship clubs, L,W,N,H,M,C,P,B,C,M,S,W,S,S,Q,B,S,P.

Wonder if anyone would notice if I used U for Hull.

Just seen something obvious now, CLOWN (appropriate) which would have us,

First game- Cardiff or Coventry.

Boxing Day- Leeds.

Easter, Good Friday- Oxford.

Easter Monday-West Brom or Watford.

Last game- Norwich.

I know, too much time on my hands. Just thank god Oxford got promoted.

I'd go for a winnable game away first up, be great to be 6 pts after 2 games, sets the tone for a good tilt at top 6.

Boxing Day, yes Terry them at home.

Busy Easter, just keep picking up points.

Last home game edging Leeds out of play offs with us securing autos.

A bit Carlsberg but hey ho

First game will be something like Swansea away.

The Steel City derbies will be November and February, or similar.  No way do SYP want that when there’s decent weather and other things going on.

Boxing Day, please just a home game.  Tired of long drives to Middlesbrough/Coventry etc.

Easter games will be something vaguely derbyish but not really, Stole and Burnley or whatever.  
 

Last game, home against someone likely to be mid table and unarsed…Watford probably perfect.

I think the new TV deal is going to take some of the lower IQ fans by surprise 

Interesting given there is no 3pm blackout the first weekend all the Championship games not other wise moved are the 12.30pm slot

League 1 is given the 5.30pm slot for all games aside the Dingles 

League 2 sticks with the 3pm slot - aside from Chesterfield 

All available on the Sky Streaming new service

Well, I’ll miss L**ds (h) …..

the last time IIRC we played Leeds on August bank holiday weekend was the game that Matias scored that wonder goal….. I wasn’t around for that either….

I was in the middle of Lincolnshire at a British Superbike race weekend…. 
 

That’s where I’ll be this August bank holiday weekend.

Can we have another wonderthunderbastard again please?!

The fixture Computer has been very kind to me.  With Holidays & Festivals I could have missed 5 Saturday games.

The five we are either away, an International break or moved to the Sunday (first game).

Same here, away at Coventry when I'm away the first weekend in October and following weekend its internationals. 

Bit worried about home game against pigs on 15th March though as I go away on Sunday 16th, following weekend is internationals. 

When we play away against pigs in November Barnsley play Rotherham same day so very likely one of games will get moved.

5 Championship games are going to be moved every weekend out of 12.

Playing Saturday 3pm will be the minority scenario over the course of the season

Games played Friday evening, Saturday lunchtime, Saturday teatime or maybe 8pm kick off, Sunday lunchtime and Sunday evening my guess.

I just think they may simply do multi choice at one kick off time 

Sky have the Saturday teatime slot already for the EPL

Really not sure Sunday evening will appeal to the broadcasters, they have been sticking the women's football there so clearly don't care

I think I would have taken those opening fixtures if I was DR, ok L**ds will be fancied but as opening fixtures go they are hopefully a reasonable opportunity to get some points on the board. Surely can’t be any worse than last season, can it!
