Southampton v Newcastle postponed as second Gameweek 21 fixture falls

Southampton v Newcastle United has become the second Gameweek 21 fixture to be postponed.

The game has been called off due to a lack of numbers in the Magpies’ squad and follows the earlier announcement that Leicester City v Norwich City wouldn’t go ahead on New Year’s Day.

A Premier League statement said:

 “Southampton FC’s match against Newcastle United at St Mary’s Stadium, due to be played at 2pm on Sunday 2 January, has regrettably been postponed.

“Newcastle United continue to have ongoing COVID-19 cases and injuries that led to their match against Everton FC being called off earlier this week. The Board accepted the postponement application as the club does not have the required number of players available for the match (13 outfield players and one goalkeeper).

“The Board was able to make its decision in advance of the fixture to give clarity to the affected clubs and their fans. We apologise for the inconvenience and disruption caused to supporters’ festive plans.”

    Weird week. I'm in two minds whether to sell Ronaldo or captain him.

      Wolves are decent at the back

    3 doubles announced!

 (I think, hard to decipher if there's more)

    Southampton v Brentford
    Everton v Leicester
    West Ham v Norwich

      Looks like I need to bring one of Antonio / Toney / DCL

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        Even if DCL had triple he is still not worth bringing.

    2. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 21 hours ago

      Bowen captain

    3. Scholes Out For Summer
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      27 days, 21 hours ago

      Only Everton and west ham get the double in the end

      1. No Kane No Gain
        • 3 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        And Brentford

    4. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      Scenes!!!!

    5. Rains of Castamere
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      27 days, 21 hours ago

      So just to check, only West Ham, Everton and Brentford actually double?

      1. Scholes Out For Summer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        Yes

      2. JONALDINHO
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        Yes

      3. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        If all the fixtures happen of course!!

        1. Gubby-Allen
            27 days, 21 hours ago

            If any of those six teams have their FA Cup game called off, that would be the only date to play it, four days later.

        2. iL PiStOlErO
          • 2 Years
          27 days, 21 hours ago

          So only West Ham it is then.

      4. Revival
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        Not for Leicester, Norwich and Southampton

      5. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        Likely the delays were contractual wrangling by the TV companies over who gets what and various arguments about what they had paid for and lost out on to date.

        Toney, welcome back to my team!

        Allan to the rescue

      9. It’s gonna Ben Mee
        • 8 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        Moves the armband from Son to Bowen

      10. Milkman Bruno
        • 1 Year
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        Gw22 and not gw 21 right?

          21 - the games after after the weekend FA Cup games but before the 22 deadline

      11. umerlfc

        Easy FH if LIV vs CHE is off

        Terrible teams for DGW fixtures.

      14. ViperStripes
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 12 Years
        27 days, 20 hours ago

        I only have Bowen as a DGW player. Probably not worth a hit to bring in any one else,

    6. AnyoneButLiverpool
      • 2 Years
      27 days, 21 hours ago

      Gallagher -> Gray or Bowen?

      1. iL PiStOlErO
        • 2 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        Bowen now!

    7. No Kane No Gain
      • 3 Years
      27 days, 21 hours ago

      If fixtures are announced for games that start before gameweek 22. Are we confident it will be added to gameweek 21 and not 22?!

    8. WHUFCSmith23

      Been wondering about wildcarding but it only comes to a minus 16.

      Probably means I should hold off doesn't it?

      1. Goooo Rickie
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        "Only"

    9. Wild Guus Chase
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      27 days, 21 hours ago

      So'ton v Brentford - 11th Jan
      Everton v Leicester - 11th Jan
      West Ham v Norwich - 12th Jan

      1. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        West Ham makes it interesting if they all happen.

        The potential sting in the tail!

      2. AC/DC AFC
        • 6 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        Nothing for Burnley or Watford then.

        It's a bit easier for those of us holding Bowen and Antonio.

        Is a third West Ham pick advisable?

    10. Eh, just one more thing ...
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      DGW 21 announced …. Everton v Leicester. West Ham v Norwich ….. Southampton v someone

      1. Wild Guus Chase
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        27 days, 21 hours ago

        Brentford

      2. Gubby-Allen
          27 days, 21 hours ago

          Wouldn't it be GW 22?

      3. Rains of Castamere

        Looking at best use of ft in this crazy moment. Team is in good shape compared to others.

        Would you do:
        A) Broja+Rudi to Watkins+ 1)Targett or 2)Coady?

        B) also Bilva to Foden now for -4?

        DDG 3.9
        TAA Rudi Cancelo Dier Tierney
        Son Jota Bilva Bowen D. Luiz
        CR7 Dennis Broja*

        2ft, 2.2m itb

          • 2 Years
          27 days, 21 hours ago

          Yes it is. Was all set on Watkins bit now looking at doibling up with Antonio(have Jarod)

      6. Lord of Ings
        • 6 Years

          Need Bowen in then!

        4. Arteta
          • 6 Years
          27 days, 21 hours ago

          Gallagher to Bowen for a hit makes sense given that I have no WHU cover.

        5. Lord of Ings
          • 6 Years

          The Ham DGW couldn’t have come at a better time as a Bowen Antonio double owner already

          Everton, Brentford and West Ham all have a DGW 21. Toney anyone?

          1. Lord of Ings
            • 6 Years
            27 days, 21 hours ago

            Sshh he’s supposed to be my differential 😛
            Now that I’ve said it he’ll probably end up on 4 points.

            1. Wild Guus Chase

              Wondering whether to extend GW21 or bering forward GW22.

            Keane coming in for me - don't care if the EVE def is rubbish. Attacking threat

            1. iL PiStOlErO
              • 2 Years
              27 days, 21 hours ago

              Attacking threat on your rank yes.

          4. Make Arrows Green Again
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 4 Years
            27 days, 21 hours ago

            I already made my moves to catch price rises so the only doubler I will have is Bowen, but he makes an excellent captaincy candidate so not too bothered.

          5. Revival
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 9 Years
            27 days, 21 hours ago

            Laca > Antonio (C) for a hit will surely pay off, Right?

          6. Gandalf
            • 11 Years
            27 days, 21 hours ago

            Hmm is not owning Antonio now going to be too risky with his ownership likely at over 90%? Would likely be a hit for Ronaldo or Watkins to get him in.

            Hard to know if his past form will continue but seems sharper recently

          7. We Go Again
            • 7 Years
            27 days, 21 hours ago

            Tough decision between Antonio and Bowen for (C)
