LVanDome: Can’t beat fixture release day, I’ve plotted out how we’re winning the league at least 5 times in my head already

@8LAD35: I'd be more excited about the fixtures if I didn't expect a Uranus variant or something

@ArtyBianco: That’s one long weekend in Blackpool…

@deepcarblades: Wanted- Summer/ Autumn away day at Blackpool. Got- Midweek in the middle of March. Splendid

@FreddyTheFud: I'll be very surprised if the opener v Birmingham doesn't get moved to Friday the 6th for Sky coverage.

@SheffUtd25: After looking at Premier League fixtures for the last 2 season that's a nice sight! Though I'm not saying every game is easy but it's nice to look at the fixtures and not be thinking damage limitations for some of these games … nicely confident we can take the lot

@TylerDu19660464: Preston away on Boxing Day? Usual allocation of 75,000 away tickets? Ooh go on then.

@PoBHG: Cannie wait! We'd BETTER be allowed to attend
