Seeing as this will be my first Ďliveí game for over 4 years, I thought Iíd get the season off to a winning start!

Got my tickets, trying to fathom an alternate route to bypass the closed A12 and have persuaded Mrs Audrey to drive me back!

Based on what Iíve seen during the 1st half v Bristol City and yesterdayís performance v Plymouth I can see 3 points heading back to Wiltshire. No doubt Garner will get pelters!

1-3. RHM, Austin and Kemp. 786 Town fans in attendance.

Will be abroad for this one so will stream it. A win is not outside realms of possibility. I have a lot more faith in Flynn than SL or Morris. I think we will be hard to beat and with a few more high quality additions challenge nearer the top end of the table.

M25 to Epping Forest, M11 to Bishop Stortford then A120 nearly all the way into Colchester subject to change as you get near to the Town😆

Not that it means much but Colchester had an unbeaten pre-season (played 3 EFL Sides) so will certainly have some confidence.

We don't usually have much luck against Colchester, but if there is anytime to be optimistic, it's before the season starts. 2-0 to Swindon (Austin brace)

Except for getting beaten by West Ham U21s.

Driving to Colchester due to industrial action on the trains.
The A12 is only closed at junction 25. Leave the A12 up to the roundabout and rejoin again.
Can't see that talking the quoted 2 hours

Itís been reported on the local news here, the previous time it was shut there were delays of over 2 hours. However, this time they havenít mentioned it on the news so assume itís not as bad.

Don went down to Colchester a couple of weeks ago for a Wedding, and although he went down late afternoon he said there were no real delays at all then.

However, Iím still going to go the other way via Bury St Edmunds

Ironically I am in Great Yarmouth on Sunday so if the fixtures had come out before June I could have arrived a day early and gone to the game on the way. Shit happens.

I think I might go for a bike ride instead of watching - May start to watch live later in the year.

That's ok if you're coming down as opposed to across. Contemplated parking in Chelmsford then training in but you know they wont have any trains running.

BTW, the rail strike was last weekend. The coming weekend I think is just a driver Overtime ban, so whilst there may be fewer trains, I don't think it's as bad as not having any trains running.

Fun fact. What record do Colchester hold that happened 30 years ago?
