So we can only wonder what we have got coming our way on Tuesday night!
The first evening schedule of the season is hours away and the division is already starting to take shape.
Every week, new betting partner Unibet will run the rule over the main matches in the two divisions.
All your odds across the Vanarama National League are available at Unibet.
Boreham Wood v FC Halifax Town
The past two seasons have of course brought us champions few predicted.
Both of these two teams are in the early promotion places - and you could forgive their fans for already wondering what if.
Wood’s four wins and a draw against fancied Stockport County has brought four clean sheets and a resolve to leave manager Luke Garrard purring.
FC Halifax’s defeat of Southend United on Saturday means its three wins from five, with nine goals showing Pete Wild plans to keep on entertaining!
One to watch: Tyrone Marsh (Boreham Wood)
Unibet enhanced odds: Both teams to score
Chesterfield v Barnet
The Spireites’ rhythm has been disrupted by September stalemates but they want to take the frustration out on Barnet.
A timid draw at Dover Athletic a week after Bromley pegged them back late on left fans cursing as they headed for home.
But if they see to a Barnet side yet to win then that will all be soon forgotten.
Harry Kewell’s team couldn’t hold on against Eastleigh and although things are looking better than last season, that first three points can’t come soon enough.
The former Champions League winner won’t want to be told Chesterfield won this fixture 6-0 last season - can they underline their improvement on Tuesday night?
One to watch: George Carline (Chesterfield)
Unibet enhanced odds: Over 2.5 goals
Grimsby v Wrexham
There wasn’t a barrage of people talking up Grimsby Town’s chances during the summer.
With the big signings made everywhere - paired with the fact that what comes down doesn’t usually go straight back up - the Mariners went about their business quietly.
A brilliant 3-1 win at Torquay and getting the job done against Weymouth and Barnet means the side who have played a game less than most are now coming into focus.
There is no doubt they have made an eye-catching start and if they can win the game of the night, that summer silence will be replaced by a roar!
Wrexham fans think Saturday’s win over Woking has got things going.
Three draws from their first four games represented a frustrating start but the Dragons are unbeaten - and will be backed by big numbers at Blundell Park.
It’s going to be a night of action that you can’t take your eyes off!
