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.

      Beautiful. Traore and his dodgy shoulder for me, who knows what treasure awaits.

      I need Traore to not play. But he is a tank and will play with one arm behind his back

    It doesn’t look windy in that picture ^^^

    My first sub is Cantwell. Great.

      Haul incoming

    Oh wow... Talk about getting lucky. If this gets shunted down the line, i.e. not played next weekend or some midweek point during GW26, I only miss out on KdB and get a not-unwelcome 2 off the bench. Savage cabbage. A lot of Aguero (C) out there crying into their cornflakes.

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Cornflakes for lunch?

      1. CroatianHammer

        It's Sunday... I didn't eat until noon...

      VCs

    3. V-2 Schneiderlin
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      guessing a few have Aguerro (C) KdB (VC)?

      1. Utopsis
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Indeed

  5. HonestBlatter
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member

    When we know the new data for this match? Since this risk was know long time before it cannot take long?

    Sheff Utd owner has Henderson, O'Connell and Stevens in their FPL team - game going again confirmed! 😉

      When did they sell Lundstram?

      1. Sun Jihai

        This week! For Stevens

        Gw26 😆

        Now if that isn't a scoop, I dint know what is.

    2. SB007
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Might get abandoned during game ! Jam whirling around

    3. Wally banter
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      How are we sure, its the same guy?

      1. Sun Jihai
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        It's him, he was on the FPL Surgery podcast earlier in the season - he's a huge FPL fan, look at his

  7. Niho992
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Main rival is luckiest guy ever...

    This is 7-8 time in the season he will get 10 + from the bench

    1. Joey Barton and Friends
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Having a good bench isn’t really luck

      1. DantheManinaPan
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Tru tings

      2. KICKandRUSH
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Having a good bench is pretty easy but you are very lucky if you get points out of it because it often means you have a bad starting eleven.

  8. camarozz
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Lots of jam in my ML.

    All my rivals ahead (5 of them) have a city captain and Salah vc.

    1. Big Bambora
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      That's not jam it's just common sense.

      1. Riverside Red
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Not is Salah doesn't play due to new arrival

      2. DAZZ
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        We dont talk sense on here slouch

      3. Fantasy Gold
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Camarozz doesn’t do logic.

    2. The 12th Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Salah vc isn’t really jam.
      The first or second choice for captaincy this week.

      It’s unlucky (c) and (vc) in the same game.

      1. Make Arrows Green Again
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        And very risky

    3. Ginkapo FPL
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I checked my team yesterday to make sure Mahrez wasnt vice because of this possibility...

      1. camarozz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Well I agree.. Maybe not jam but more annoying..

    4. Sun Jihai
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      You don't understand the definition of FPL jam

    5. Catastrophe
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Or perhaps the non-Aguero cappers are the jammy ones? Was expecting and hoping for a haul today! Salah (VC) here too.

  9. kopite65
    • 5 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    needed kun (C) this week as my differential in ml, not in another dgw when others will just bring him in, ah well, got lund (or not) to look forward to later !!

  10. The Sun'll Come Out To…
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 6 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    KDB(C) Mahrez(V). Sonofa! &%$#@

  11. thegaffer82
    • 8 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    I'll be Dendonker deep into my bench if City game isn't re-scheduled for this GW

    1. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Nice literary reference:)

  12. Syd.
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    I would like to drop you all a snippet but it would get removed

    Because it would be full of grace

  13. JohnRoss
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    So who would you get off the bench for KDB? Fleck here...

    1. _Ninja_
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Fleck and Taylor for me for kdb kun

    2. squits
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Dunk's 2 pointer for me. solid 2pt Dunk

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Traore (if fit). Pereira (if not).

    4. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Soy coming in for KDB & Rico coming in for Kun 🙁

    5. fc_skrald
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Lundstram if he playes, Hayden and Cantwell next on the bench

    6. kopite65
      • 5 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      cantwell and soy for kun & kdb
      also have snoddy to ! no sub for him, injured

    7. beric
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Cantwell

  14. _Ninja_
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 9 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    SHU v BOU 1st up on MOTD tonight.... Hope its a boring 0-0 😀

    1. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I couldn't care less about the MOTD aspect. But a cleanie for SHU would be a disaster (for me). Many have doubled on SHU DF and I have zero SHU after ditching Lord Lund

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Yeh only have Henderson here. Pen save and a goal conceded probably the best scenario.

    2. Ole Trafford
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      0-0 would be a thing of beauty

    3. beric
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      1-1 pls

  15. Elly88 > KTR (Kevin The …
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Peace be upon those who did not captain Salah and went (K)un.

    1. Pépé Pig
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Most of us have Salah VC anyway so works out the same

  16. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    What does the postponement mean for fpl?

    Is this gameweek not finalised until they play it, or could it mean they no longer blank in GW28?

    1. Tinkermania
      1 month, 18 days ago

      None of the above. It will finalise next week and they will still blank in 28 .

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        So basically City will have another DGW?

        1. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Probably

    2. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      The GW will finish regardless of City & WHam game. And GW28 has no chance for City v WHam as City have the Cup Final that week

  17. nerd_is_the_werd
    1 month, 18 days ago

    And now the real question... does this mean City have blanked in GW26?

    1. Niho992
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      99 %

      1. Utopsis
        1 month, 18 days ago

        99% is based on what?

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Possible. Just have to wait and see.

  18. diesel001
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Personally think FFS needs to move forward with new articles:

    1) Ref appointments for each GW
    2) Weather impact for each GW. Particularly where there is bad weather, they should be warning about postponements using the data on historic precedents

  19. Goooo Rickie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Aguero vc. Great now I have to sweat Salah getting injured/sick this week :/

    1. Twisted Saltergater
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      A natural born pessimist!

  20. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 3 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Hayden and Greenwood in for KdB and Aguero, and that's assuming Lundstram and Williams start/get minutes.

    Salah (VC)

    1. mynameisq
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Dendoncker picked the wrong time to randomly get dropped! Did Boly take his place? Because if so then he is a non option from now on

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 3 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Yeah from what I hear he has lost his place to Saiss, Boly was always nailed when fit.

  21. Twisted Saltergater
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Where’s half vice captain points when we need them!

    1. Ginkapo FPL
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Why do we need them?

      1. Twisted Saltergater
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        To award those who picked a player as captain over those who gave that player the armband as second choice.

        1. Ginkapo FPL
          • 8 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          I'm two players down. You dont need to kick salt in the wound.

        2. squits
          • 10 Years
          1 month, 18 days ago

          Yeah but this example shows why it's not really fair all the time? How could ppl predict the game gets pp?

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 10 Years
            1 month, 18 days ago

            It wouldn’t be fair, no, but would add an interesting twist to the game.

          2. Tinkermania
            1 month, 18 days ago

            There were signs. Did you not see the forecast and coversatilons here?

  22. SB007
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    SHU to be abandoned half way through then what?!

    I have
    Doucoure
    Cantwell
    Williams coming in for

    Jesus Mahrez KDB

    1. SB007
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Phew. I was sweating on Aguero haul.

      Now has Leicester then blank.

      1. V-2 Schneiderlin
        • 9 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        true, this was a key game I was targeting when I brought in Aguero - dang

      2. John Nerdelbaum
        • 7 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Who's Heather?

  23. Niho992
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 18 days ago

    What if game is played tuesday/wednesday after last game in this GW (Chelsea-United)

    Is that still GW 26?

    1. SB007
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Yes. But it won’t.

      1. Utopsis
        1 month, 18 days ago

        Love how sure your are of this!

    2. diesel001
      • 3 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Depends on how FPL decide to categorise it. They could extend the GW, but equally they could not.

    3. Epic Fail ⚽ 墅
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      GW27 starts on Feb 22nd.

    4. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Champions League games on those days.

      PL would have to seek permission from UEFA. Which, considering it's Man City playing, might not be forthcoming...

    5. Tinkermania
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Possibly.

    AFCB’s BBC commentator at the game:

    UPDATE: From @kristemple at Bramall Lane: There is currently no immediate threat to the @SheffieldUnited v @afcbournemouth fixture going ahead. The rain is intensifying, but the pitch drains well according to staff. Conditions around the area are “lively”, being monitored. #afcb

    1. SB007
      • 2 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      It’s fan safety. Not pitch or rain. Expecting it to be abandoned too.

      1. squits
        • 10 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        100% fan safety is the risk for postponement. Very rare a prem pitch gets flooded.

    2. Ginkapo FPL
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Council chopped all the older trees down recently

    3. Patio Kev
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 6 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      I still think it will be postponed eventually. They need to consider not just the fans getting to the game but how they will get home after the match finishes too.

  25. BRKFCTrueRover 42
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Aguero captain uncertainty is real!

  26. SB007
    • 2 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Bournemouth fans can’t get to Sheffield due to trains and weather disruption.

    1. Weasel Boy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Should be called off

    2. Make Arrows Green Again
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 3 Years

      Bournemouth fans can never get anywhere due to train disruption TBF

      Good, SHU cleanie locked

      Bit hasty man, theres over a week left of this gameweek

  28. SADIO SANÉ
    • 4 Years
    1 month, 18 days ago

    Aguero was probably going to be benched anyway, it's probably done you all a favour

    1. Cahill
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      jammy aguero owners

    2. thegaffer82
      • 8 Years
      1 month, 18 days ago

      You keep telling yourself that....

      The rest of us know it's pie in the sky

      1. SADIO SANÉ
        • 4 Years
        1 month, 18 days ago

        loool

    3. KICKandRUSH
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      Agüero would have scored at least 4 and would've left all Salah cappers in tears.

    4. Devo-McDuff
      • 1 Year
      1 month, 18 days ago

      What makes you say that?

  29. Niho992
    • 1 Year
    1 month, 18 days ago

    I had 0 City players before this GW and i played my WC mainly because that and my defence..

    F**k this season

    1. SB007
      • 2 Years
