Following the release of the 2014/15 Sky Bet Football League fixtures, we cross the grounds up and down the country to bring you reaction from a handful of clubs across the three divisions.
In the Sky Bet Championship, Nottingham Forest boss Stuart Pearce, Blackpool boss Jose Riga, Brighton & Hove Albion's Sami Hyypia and Charlton Athletic's Bob Peeters will all be taking charge of their clubs for the first time in a competitive format on Saturday 9th August.
Two of those will come up against each other when Forest host Blackpool at the City Ground. Hyypia's Brighton team meanwhile host Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton go to London rivals Brentford.
Of the six new teams in the Sky Bet Championship, the Addicks face four of them in the first two months.
First-team coach Damian Matthew told the club's website: "It's an exciting time. Everyone is looking forward to it.
"Brentford had a fantastic season last year, which they deserve congratulations for, but they will find the Championship another level and look to adapt as quickly as they can.
"There is a settling in period for any team, relegated or promoted. Some teams come in and struggle while other do well."
In Sky Bet League 1, Yeovil Town host Doncaster Rovers in a battle of two relegated clubs, while Sky Bet League 2 champions Chesterfield have a mouth-watering tie at last season's beaten Play-Off Finalists Leyton Orient.
However, it is the final day of the campaign that caught Spireites captain Ian Evatt's eyes, when they travel to local rivals Sheffield United on 2nd May.
Evatt said: "Football sometimes has a funny way of throwing these things at you. I already think that game will have something on it, hopefully for the better for us.
"If we go into the last game of the season with the chance of Play-Offs or promotion it will be great, and to go there and win would be fantastic for both the club and the fans."
Finally, in Sky Bet League 2, Rob Edwards will begin his journey as Tranmere Rovers manager against York City.
Edwards admitted seeing the fixtures released this season was vastly different to years gone by.
"I'm usually on holiday when the fixtures come out and I see them in the paper. It's good to have a home game to start and hopefully we get plenty of people down to Prenton Park," he told Tranmere's YouTube channel.
Elsewhere, Cheltenham Town travel to Bury. Mark Yates - the third-longest serving manager in English football's top four divisions - admits his side have been dealt a difficult start to the 2014/15 campaign.
"Bury will be a team spending money and recruiting to win promotion so it is a really tough start. Gigg Lane is a nice pitch and I am sure David Flitcroft will have them playing good football," he told ctfc.com.
