Cant wait! I feel that we will get of to starting role with PNE (good results last season 4pts) Luton - should get a least 1pt. Up the owls!

Have PNE got a new boss yet? A lot will depend on who they get in, if not. And who they keep hold of. They've already sold Davis to the Blunts! Our first two home games look OK though.

is it just me or does the fixture list looks a lot less frightening now we're established in this division?

Certainly does, and although the first few fixtures may seem a bit boring, that's only because we're not scared of any of them, we can get off to a good start against them...
