It's fair to say that in terms of opening days, Chester FC have certainly had better.
A 3-0 defeat at Gateshead on Saturday made for a tough start for Jon McCarthy and his men and a miserable afternoon for the hardy 256 fans who made the trip to the North East.
Not quite as humbling as the 5-0 opening day home defeat to Barnet in 2014/15, but a loss that was hard to stomach nonetheless and Blues fans were quick to voice their views on social media.
We've picked out some of the reactions on Twitter to the 3-0 defeat, a loss that Chester will be looking to bounce back from immediately when they welcome one of the promotion favourites for this season, Dagenham & Redbridge, to the Lookers Vauxhall Stadium tomorrow night (7.45pm).
