The first League 1 fixture list for 14 months. Obviously want to see us win, just like everyone else with their respective teams, just nice to see all 10 names on the list. We're all winners this

I agree on both counts. Really important for Skolars to start the season with a strong performance (and a win!)

Be fascinated to see how WWR do.

Thanks for sharing this Fearnowt - I thought they covered the league well. I totally take Jermaine's comment about the positive benefits on wellbeing of being able to watch sport, although I have to say watching Skolars isn't always great for my stress levels!

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

It is very quiet on here, I'd expected it to be thronging with comments after 14 months out of the game? 

All forums are the same.

IT fatigue?

Think it's because the games are behind closed doors. Hard for a lot of people to get really excited about a game when they can't watch it live.

Likewise for me but I think for many it's the match day experience they love 

I'm same. I have the same ritual every Sunday for home matches. Hasn't changed in years. I'm itching to get back to the Keepmoat but even then things will be different for a while. It'll be sitting in bubbles and not going to the bar but I can live with that just to get things started again.

This is one occasion when having such a big ground pays off.

You know what? I'm genuinely looking forward without worrying too much about results initially. You don't know what you've got til its gone etc. 

That said I reserve the right to amend that at 5pm tomorrow!

I don't like predicting the results of opening games. Keighley will be tough but I reckon we match them in most positions. Boas v Murrell, Tali Vs Webster, Cross v Kesik. I'll go for a draw!!
