Fixtures

Man City v West Ham postponed due to adverse weather conditions

One of today’s two Premier League matches has been called off.

Manchester City announced this morning that their meeting with West Ham United wouldn’t go ahead “due to extreme and escalating weather conditions and in the interests of supporter and staff safety.”

A date for the postponed match has yet to be announced (it remains to be seen if the winter break could still accommodate this clash) but City are facing a real backlog of fixtures, with Pep Guardiola’s troops also blanking in Gameweek 28.

Progression to the FA Cup quarter-finals (or Chelsea’s) would also force their Gameweek 31 meeting with Frank Lampard’s side to be rearranged.

City’s Gameweek 34 clash against Newcastle United would be postponed if either team made it through to the FA Cup semi-finals, although the free midweek afterwards would accommodate one of their outstanding games.

As it stands, the other Premier League match scheduled for today – Sheffield United v Bournemouth – remains on.

      Super unlucky but imagine the scenes if Mo scores a hatty, baby celebration imminent surely (like the one people thought was coming from Vardy)

    1. GARY AND JAMIE
      • 6 Years

      Only thing you did wrong was vice needed in another game. I have Salah C Trent VC which was my own oversight

        Really bad error with your cap and vice cap on the same team

        Worst error I’ve seen

          1 month, 27 days ago

          My Sterling (C), KDB (VC) vs. Watford earlier this season disagrees.

          I wouldn't have done it for a game with a predicted severe weather risk, mind.

            Yh that's the point foolish to vc same team if u had risks before the gw started of match cancelling

    Wow - I can't believe that, hands up, I called that wrong earlier on, was sure it would go ahead.

    Must be alto worse in England than it currently is here in Northern Ireland.

    1. faux_C
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Thing is - it's not about the pitch, it's about the fans outside.

      1. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        As if no-one is Manchester is going to go out today ... its not about the fans, its about not being sued

  11. rnrd

    What does the postponing of MCI - WHU means in for this Gw? What happens to the city players ? Are they blanking ?

    1. Wild Rover
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Unless they rearrange it for this gw

      1. built_this_city

        They won’t

        1. Tinmen

          What makes you say that ?

        Yep, but cant see that happening to be honest.

        I have lucked out, only have kdb from City, and in ml am chasing, 2 have double city c,vc, so rotten luck for them.

        Guy 1st in ml has Kun, KDB and mahrez, sitting at 10k OR.

        1. HashAttack
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          My rival has lucked out .. .really annoying as we are quite closed

          From last Sunday and today I have had 3 Agueros, 2 KDBs and 1 Son to his nothing - my score +12

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      We don't know until the fixture is given a new date.

    3. Utopsis

        Why wouldn't they arrange the game for next weekend?

        1. HMC
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years

          Imagine cause TV scheduling has already been set

        2. faux_C
          • 7 Years

          Winter break is important.

    4. Kip
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years

      Now watch Salah get a rest next week for the birth of his kid

      1. jimski
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        If none of Aguero, KDB or Salah play, very few players will have a captain anyway...

        1. Hazz
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Should have stuck the VC on Son rather than KDB!

        2. Kip
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          Thats why i put the VC on Ings

          1. Long ago I drew a walrus
            • 9 Years

            High five, fellow Ings captainer

      2. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        The Salah cappers would still win as they probably get Son, TAA etc. as VC

      3. Long ago I drew a walrus
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        This is precisely why I VCed Ings. Genuinely hope it happens.but tbh it's unlikely

      4. GARY AND JAMIE
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        If Christian Eriksens missus goes into labour you would be bricking it with a Spurs player in your team

    5. Differential (c)
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      Imagine most VC falls on Salah in the community?

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        KDB

      2. Holmes
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Some might have put it on Kevin or Mahrez

    6. GARY AND JAMIE
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 27 days ago

      As long as Trents not the father and wants to be bedside im ok with it

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years

        Ha ha - that applies to me too (the TAA vc bit, not me being the father)

      Two double game weeks now for Man City sounds like heaven, then you remember Pep roulette.

      1. HMC
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Yep actually sounds like roulette especially if around champs league (if they’re still in it)

        • 4 Years

        70 % imo. Think he plays LWB with Shaw at LCB

        1. Tony Martial
          • 1 Year

          This

    9. Long ago I drew a walrus

      Ings (VC) to outscore Salah. Come on Danny boy

      1. Old Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Very possible.

      2. KGFC
        • 3 Years

        Could be good this GW

    10. Syd.

      "Further information regarding the rescheduling of today’s match will be published in due course."

        It’ll be outside this GW for sure just a maximise the jam for my non city owning rivals.

      Be interesting to see if this could change the possible games that can be the ones when Liverpool win the league.

      1. HashAttack
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        When Liverpool score another 17 points then they win it - regardless of how city do

    14. Make Arrows Green Again

      Bad luck anyone who brought in Aguero before yesterday morning 🙁 yet another reason why early transfers are a risk.

      I'd be interested to know if anyone brought him in after this storm warning broke. There was always a risk from Friday night onwards.

      1. faux_C
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 27 days ago

        Captain Hindsight nonsense. No-one could have seen this coming even with the storm.

        1. Make Arrows Green Again
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          I don't think I'm the only one who specifically changed my mind yesterday morning despite being on the move all week, having the budget to do Vardy to Kun with 1FT. Like I say it's bad luck but it's always a risk. First time in decades that there has been country-wide gale force wind warnings.

        Per the PL Handbook

        https://www.premierleague.com/publications

        L.14 Upon a League Match being postponed or abandoned in accordance with Rules L.12.1, L.12.2, L.12.3, or L.12.4 the Home Club shall forthwith inform the Board, and the Board will thereupon exercise its power under Rule L.1.2 and fix a date and kick-off time of the re-arranged League Match.

        L.1. The Board shall: L.1.1. determine the dates and kick-off times of all League Matches as soon as practicable prior to the commencement of each Season; and L.1.2. have the power at any time thereafter to change the date and kick-off time of a League Match, and before exercising such power the Board will consult with and take into account any representations made by the Clubs participating in the League Match in question and any other Club or Clubs which may be affected thereby.

            Pretty much, but also need police and fans groups to agree.

        2. HashAttack
          • 3 Years
          1 month, 27 days ago

          So long as the rules don't allow West Ham to just concede the 3 points without playing

        1 month, 27 days ago

        I think the article should make it clear that city players will get 0 points unless the match is hastily rearranged during the winter break (unlikely). I can just see a lot of people asking questions.

        Also, let people know what happens if they captained a man city player...

        1. Utopsis
            1 month, 27 days ago

            The article cannot make it clear, because the situation is unclear.

              I actually just meant it could explain that if man city don't play this gameweek then your man city players won't get any points. A lot of people seem to ask this most basic of questions

                Now you have confused me - 0 points or classed as non-playing so that our subs come in

          Checking the calendar, city - whu could very well be re-arranged to next week end and still count for GW26 couldn’t it?

            It is a possibility. Provided both clubs and the PL Board agree to it.
