    No idea what it is, there's just always been this weird empty square at the front right in the middle of the stand.

    To be honest one of the crap away games or anyone at home.

    Bournemouth's nicer than nearly everywhere else in August so it's a waste of time to have a good away game that early on.

    What do you look for in an away day?
    I know the booze (and everything generally) is a tad expensive (unless you're down from London in which case it's a bit cheaper). But a bit of sea-air might do ya good, coming down from where the sun struggles to penetrate the smog.

    The travel is crap I grant you, and we have to cope with that on every away trip.

    Anyone but Bournemouth away as it's impossible to get a ticket.

    Wouldn't say it's particularly expensive, pretty much standard for most places these days isn't it? Certainly Manchester, Brighton, London and various others are way more expensive than Bournemouth,

    I guess it's somewhere in the middle. Most recently I've done away weekends in Cardiff and Newcastle, where rounds are half the price compared with here. Amazing. But you're right in that London and most other metro-areas that you mention are more expensive. If you came here from more provincial areas, I get the impression you'd find it a bit pricey.

    There's a few years time delay between London and Bournemouth but we do follow eventually, what with all the emigrating Londoners we get. So I'm sure we've got it all to look forward to :hiding

    Even Southampton is more expensive than Bournemouth now the “craft beer” stuff has exploded there. Can easily end up paying over a fiver a pint in places if you’re not careful

    Wonder if we'll get Newcastle away yet again.

    Chelsea v Man Utd on day 1 apparently.

    We have Villa at home followed by Man City away.

    Finish away at Crystal Palace. Potential banana skin if the game means something.

    Also we play Arsenal away in August which is very unusual!

    All unconfirmed but pretty sure he will be right.

    Sheffield United's long awaited return to the premier league will begin with a trip to Bournemouth.

    Summer weather and traffic down to the coast will be a nightmare, not mention the ticket allocation

    FML.

    Everton at home. Thrilling.

    We also have Norwich away in winter, albeit New Year's Day which could be a fun 'weekender'.

    The fixtures have not been kind to me this time, but I'll still be doing Sheff Utd away on 17th August :thumb What a cracking atmosphere that should be.

    Leicester away.

    Winnable and losable in equal measure. Crap record at theirs though. Battered them for 30 minutes last year until Doherty bollocked one in top bins for them.
