Exciting times..

The last time Gillingham won their opening game of the season 5-0 they went on to finish in their highest ever league position. A very creditable 11th in the old Division One (now the Championship). I expect this to be a very tough season however. League One possesses a large number of quality teams including, Leeds, Charlton and MK Dons along with some very good young outfits like Leyton Orient and Southend. Add to that, Colchester beating 2nd favourites for the title Norwich 7-1 and you begin to think that survival and possibly mid table would be a very positive and acceptable finish to our first season back in this division.

Overall, i'm just glad the football seasons back. There's nothing quite like it.

  1. Newcastle finish the season much nearer to relegation than promotion.
