2009/10 we lost 5-0 to Gillingham on the first game and still got to the Playoffs (Millwall) under Danny Wilson......

I won't take much notice of the result Saturday, after a few more games will give us some form of idea where the team stands..

There changed for you.  The last time we won an opener on the road was when Wise was in charge in Div 4.

We went up.

The time previous to that was 95/96, a 1-0 win at Hull under McMahon.

We went up.  The time previous to that was 90/91 we won 2-1 at Charlton under Ossie...the first game after the 2 division relegation, so an odd game.

Then back to 86/87, a 2-1 win at Bolton...we went up.

So an opening day win on the road is quite rare, of course we're home more or less every other year... so 4 in 30 years is more like 4 out of 15.

However in 3 of those 4 it did indicate a decent season.

I'm not going and am barely interested in it right now. Really not bothered by the upcoming season.

I'd imagine quite pricey... is the Serb still gaffer?

I will also be passing around the same time on the way to Northumberland, will give you a wave.

I would definitely have gone, although its not bad planning on my part, more the FL not consulting me on holiday plans when deciding upon the fixtures......
I will be the one on the M6 in the car waving, you can't miss me....

Yes ours is the yearly holiday that was booked back in January well before the fixtures were announced or even which division we were going to be in was known.

You hear about a shooting, and plan a different route in, and you end up hiding even though you're law abiding.

Fun fact: Duncan Shearer comes from there.

I don't know why I remember that. If only I were have as good as remembering useful stuff as I am at remembering stuff that's useless, I'd have an easier life.

My 11 year old self shouted in my head, 'Nope he's from Fort William' when I read your Carlisle bit. Then I read the whole thing. Congrats you're correct.

Northumberland (along Hadrians wall) is a lovely drive. Won't take long to nip back to Carlisle for a few hours  Wink

A better walk.

I've done various sections, and would regard it as a bit bumpy to drive.

Did that one in 2012.
Got cellulitis and right leg nearly fell off.
Other than that, it was good fun.
Carlisle will bring back fond memories of moving around at 10 yards per hour.
Would still recommend it though.

I had my first foray up that way back in 71. A very different time to today.  The Lakes I suppose were relatively busy, but Northumberland was quite empty, save for a few locals. You could get haggis and chips in Carlisle.
