Do you really think D&C Police are going to allow The Football League to start first season back up in League 1 with The Devon Derby be it home or away?
No chance. The Argyle games will be mid October to mid November and Feb / March time when the weather is miserable to curb the enthusiasm if fairweather hoolies.

I reckon Honest Al, our resident turf accountant, should start one of his "beat the bookie" threads on this very subject, if only to fill those empty, empty hours until 23/6.

I'm sure the police would rather the games between us and Argyle never took place.

But I'm not sure any day is better or worse than another, except a bank holiday weekend when it might be inconvenient re. overtime and rosters and more likelihood of trouble. Would a Tuesday evening be better? I doubt it, remembering what happened at the JPT cup game in 2010 when the Plymouth hoolies attacked our fans in the dark after the game.
To give @grecIAN Harris his dues it's pretty rare for any derby game to fall on the first or last days of the season; and I sort of understand why. It seems pretty likely that the 'fixture computer™' makes sure that these don't happen.

Please feel free to @ me when you get Argyle on July 30th ;-)
