Frisking the Fixtures

Who has the best fixtures for FPL Double Gameweek 22 and beyond?

Our regular frisk of the fixtures sees us assess the Fantasy Premier League (FPL) clubs and players with – in theory – the strongest run of league matches over the medium term.

We typically take a routine look at the next six matches in this article but in light of Double Gameweek 22 being announced, we’ll slightly tweak the usual format.

We’re instead assessing the eight Double Gameweek 22 teams for ease of fixture beyond next weekend, before looking at the best of the rest.

DOUBLE GAMEWEEK 22 TEAMS: PLAYERS WHO HAVE FAVOURABLE FIXTURES IN AND BEYOND GAMEWEEK 22

There are, arguably, only one or two teams that fall into this bracket.

Manchester United (avl + bre | WHU | bur | SOU | lee | WAT) are at the top of our Season Ticker over the next six Gameweeks, with some favourable fixtures for their attack especially beyond their so-so Gameweek 22 double.

West Ham may be riding high in the Premier League table and will pose a threat to David de Gea (£5.2m) in Gameweek 23 but their success certainly isn’t based on solidity in defence, with three of their first-choice back four out injured and only one clean sheet arriving in the Hammers’ last 11 league matches.

Burnley, who United beat 3-1 just over a week ago, then follow, while Southampton haven’t kept a clean sheet since Gameweek 12 and Leeds have registered more shut-outs than just two teams all season.

The icing on the cake is the visit of Watford, who have been scored against in all 18 of their Premier League matches in 2021/22.

The problem isn’t fixtures but form, with United scoring only six goals in their last five matches (games against Newcastle and Norwich have been part of that equation) and it’s only really Cristiano Ronaldo (£12.5m), who himself is hardly value for money, who appeals from Ralf Rangnick’s pool of below-par attackers.

Foden and Gallagher uncertainty as Ranieri explains early Dennis substitution 2

As for Watford (new + bur | NOR | whu | BHA | avl | mun), the likes of Emmanuel Dennis (£6.1m) and Joshua King (£5.8m) will be targets for, or already owned by, not just those on a Free Hit chip but for managers using their free transfers or a Wildcard.

The Hornets’ attack (we’ll ignore their defence given how poor they are at the back) may well have the best fixture pairing in Double Gameweek 22, with Newcastle and Burnley managing just four clean sheets between them all season. The Magpies can also not be beaten for goals or big chances conceded in 2021/22.

A meeting with a Norwich side who have shipped 14 goals in their last five matches then precedes a trip to West Ham, whose defensive shortcomings we have discussed above.

The fixtures stiffen thereafter but more Double Gameweeks await: as is the case with a number of clubs, Watford have another two previously postponed fixtures that could be accommodated anywhere between Gameweeks 25-29 or beyond Gameweek 30.

TEAMS WITH THE MOST FIXTURES OUTSTANDING
  • Arsenal, Burnley, Everton, Leicester (3)
  • Spurs, Brighton, Watford, Liverpool, Leeds, Aston Villa, Wolves, Newcastle, Chelsea (2)
  • Southampton, Crystal Palace, Norwich, Man Utd (1)
  • Man City, West Ham, Brentford (0)

DOUBLE GAMEWEEK 22 TEAMS: PLAYERS WHO HAVE UNFAVOURABLE FIXTURES IN/BEYOND GAMEWEEK 22

The Double Gameweek 22 fixture announcement was met by a wave of apathy by the FPL community and the above ticker illustrates why.

For Free Hitters, most of the clubs have mediocre ‘doubles’ in Gameweek 22.

And for managers planning for the longer term, either with their transfers or Wildcard, there isn’t much to shout about beyond that.

Chelsea (mci + bha | TOT | blank | blank | cry | LEI), for example, are off to the Club World Cup when Gameweeks 24 and 25 roll around and are well on their way to having their Gameweek 27 match against Leicester postponed, as that clashes with the EFL Cup final.

We probably won’t see another double for Chelsea before Gameweek 28, with anything before that requiring early domestic cup eliminations for themselves and any prospective opponents.

Brighton (CRY + CHE | lei | blank | wat | BUR | avl) are also without a league fixture in Gameweek 24 as a result of Chelsea’s involvement in the Club World Cup, meanwhile, although have an appealing run from Gameweeks 25-28 if any owners of Albion assets can navigate their way through that blank.

Leicester (bur + TOT | BHA | liv | WHU | wol | che) have some so-so fixtures after Gameweek 22 and almost certainly won’t have another double before Gameweek 33 if they continue to progress in cups at home and abroad.

Burnley (LEI + WAT | ars | MUN | LIV | bha | cry) are realistically a no-go for anyone not playing their Free Hit in Gameweek 22, while Brentford (liv + MUN | WOL | mci | CRY | ars | NEW) face the double whammy of a fairly awful ‘double’ and some of the division’s meanest defences (Wolves, City and Arsenal) beyond that.

That leaves Spurs (ARS + lei | che | SOU | WOL | mci | LEE), who also face the three sides with the best defensive records in 2021/22 (Chelsea, Wolves and City) after their middling double. Chelsea have been in fairly poor form at the back and might be there for the taking but the Blues comprehensively outplayed Antonio Conte’s near-full-strength side in the EFL Cup semi-final first leg on Wednesday, with the Lilywhites’ manager downbeat after full-time:

“Last year, they won the Champions League and if you compare the two teams I think there’s not a comparison. We’re talking about a team that’s ready to win and they’ve played an important part over many years.

“Today, we have seen the difference between the two teams.

“I said that these types of games can show us the difference in the gap there is between us and top clubs like Chelsea. We struggled a lot this evening and they showed us they are much stronger than us.” – Antonio Conte

SINGLE GAMEWEEK 22 TEAMS: BEST AND WORST FIXTURE RUNS

Who has the best fixtures for FPL Double Gameweek 22 and beyond? 2

As for the rest, it’s easy to see why some FPL managers are unwilling to ditch too many ‘single’ Gameweek 22 assets ahead of next Friday’s deadline.

Everton (nor | AVL | new | LEE | sou | MCI), for example, sit near the top of our ticker when we look at the next six Gameweeks. The lack of a Double Gameweek 22 might have miffed Fantasy bosses who brought in the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin (£7.9m) last week, thinking there was a chance of a ‘double double’ for the Toffees, but they do have some favourable matches over their next five, with the bottom three teams for goals conceded all to come between now and Gameweek 25.

Merseyside rivals Liverpool (BRE | cry | LEI | bur | NOR | blank) are also sitting pretty in our Season Ticker from Gameweeks 22-26, with Diogo Jota (£8.2m) and Trent Alexander-Arnold (£8.4m) seeing their owned-by figures and prices rising further in the run-up to Gameweek 22.

And West Ham’s upcoming meetings with Leeds, Watford, Leicester and Newcastle, who have a collective seven clean sheets in 74 league matches this season, look great for Michail Antonio (£7.8m) and Jarrod Bowen (£6.7m).

The fit-again Ollie Watkins (£7.8m) will be a likely FPL target when Aston Villa‘s (MUN | eve | LEE | new | WAT | bha) fixtures turn for the better in Gameweek 23, meanwhile.

As a footnote, there are blanks for both Liverpool and Arsenal (tot | BUR | wol | blank | BRE | blank) in the above graphic.

The two sides’ Gameweek 27 meeting has been postponed because of a clash with the EFL Cup final, although it could theoretically still be held within Gameweek 27 if they are both eliminated by the FA Cup fifth round. The Gunners are also without a fixture in Gameweek 25 because of Chelsea’s Club World Cup involvement.

FUTURE DOUBLE GAMEWEEKS?

With Covid still wreaking havoc on the fixture calendar and 15 Premier League matches still to be rearranged (plus more cup-related blanks in Gameweeks 27, 30 and 33), the schedule will continue to evolve over the coming weeks and months.

Here is when the next Double Gameweeks could hypothetically fall between now and the March international break:

  • Gameweek 23: A chance of a very small Double Gameweek*.
  • Gameweek 24: A chance of a very small Double Gameweek*.
  • Gameweek 25: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Leicester and Norwich)
  • Gameweek 26: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Chelsea, Man Utd, Leicester and Norwich)
  • Gameweek 27: A possible Double Gameweek if teams with an outstanding match-up are eliminated by the FA Cup fifth-round stage. Four sides, Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester and Liverpool, will have their weekend matches postponed because of the EFL Cup final, however.
  • Gameweek 28: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Liverpool, Leicester (if they are still in the Conference League) and Norwich (if Leicester are still in the Conference League)
  • Gameweek 29: A possible Double Gameweek for anyone bar Man City, West Ham, Brentford, Chelsea, Man Utd, Leicester (if they are still in the Conference League) and Norwich (if Leicester are still in the Conference League)
  • Gameweek 30: No chance of a Double Gameweek and a near-certain chance of it being a Blank Gameweek, as it will clash with the FA Cup quarter-finals.

*Aston Villa v Burnley or Leeds v Aston Villa could be played on Saturday/Sunday February 5/6. That would mean either the Gameweek 24 deadline being brought forward a few days or the fixture being tagged onto the end of Gameweek 23.

      2 for me.

      But it does give you a benching headache going forward, suppose that's a good thing considering so many games are being called off though!

      2 . Watkins will get DGW so it's better to keep him.

    Kane or CR7? I can only buy one. I have Son

    1. The Rock
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 12 Years

      CR7 considering you have Son, surely Utd won't be as bad as they were against Wolves, right? RIGHT?!

    2. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      CR7 for me. I still don't quite trust Kane and, in these times, it's best to spread your risk across fixtures

    3. mdm

      C7

    4. Sailboats

      Pretty conclusive. Im still contemplating though as Im not convinced by Man Utd. Thanks for the replies!

    5. Eh, just one more thing ...

    Seems lots of people with 2 FH are a bit unsure what to do. Ben Crellin posted this a little earlier:

    https://mobile.twitter.com/BenCrellin/status/1479113028842889219

    - 7 rescheduled games between this week and next week
    - 15 games still to be rescheduled
    - FA Cup will likely cause 9-12 more postponements
    - Covid postponements surely aren't over

    If you're happy with your squad and it's structure I'd just hold. There are upcoming blanks that we know about and you'd imagine more that we won't know about and they can be priceless for navigating those, and Crellin also says he currently thinks DGW36 will have more DGW games than next week. I have 4 DGWers currently and will look to take -4 to field 6 along with 4-5 players with single games but decent fixtures personally and think that's plenty.

    1. Lindelol
      • 3 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      i have 5 DGWers and will probably do watkins to Dennis to make it 6. So Yes i am keeping.

      This DGW looks uninspiring to me, going to hold my free hits.

    3. CONNERS
      • 3 Years

      Thanks for this. Makes it far easier to decide, especially with my SGW players having good fixtures.

    Will this be a good team for GW22?

    Anything else worth a hit?
    Maybe Keane ➡️ Reguilon but not sure I want to bench any of my starting 11.

    1. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      Broja to King is a good move. No need for a hit, assuming the City fixture goes ahead.

  7. Sharkytect
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    12 days, 12 hours ago

    Surely Burnley players are more interesting now than the article suggests. Particularly those who are cheap enough to sit on our benches most of the time. They have 3 extra fixtures still to be scheduled in.

    I'm gonna get Lowton in

    1. mdm
      • 9 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      Ok

    2. NateDog
      • 1 Year
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      It depends whether they might be rescheduled in the immediate future or a bit later. I got rid of Cornet after his injury but I'll likely get him back once he returns from AFCON if they still have a couple more to be rescheduled, maybe if he'll be available for GW24 or so. Apart from that though I don't see any attackers I think are appealing and defensively they're a mess.

    3. Skonto Rigga
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      Fair play, maybe it was a bit harsh. You're right with the extra doubles, as mentioned above, but I guess we don't know when they'll be. What we do know is that they've got six of the eight top-scoring teams between now and GW28 and have been pony at the back for much of the season.

      1. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

            Maybe Wood will rise again? There is a field goal kicker in NFL named Blewitt; makes me drop bad puns like an eight year old every time I see him kick.

      King

      1. Lindelol

        Use Salah cash and bring in 2 DGWers

        1. mdm
          • 9 Years
          12 days, 12 hours ago

          This

        2. Manani
          • 10 Years
          12 days, 12 hours ago

          any suggestion for who? will probably be Salah + Broja out for a hit if I decide to do so

      2. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        It should be worth selling Salah. If you're willing to take a hit, you can bring in Ronaldo/Kane up front for a dgw

        1. Manani
          • 10 Years
          12 days, 12 hours ago

          i alrady have 3 spurs, and dont fancy ronaldo. Might get dennis and bank some cash as I will be switching out gray inevvitably

        • 3 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        I'm not so sure.

        Antonio/Dennis/DCL +4 could feasibly oustcore him.

      Would you use the bench boost chip for this team? - I have a free transfer to use.

      Sanchez

      1. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Yes. Tierney to Reguilón is a good move if you have 0.5

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 6 Years

          Thanks. 1.5 million in the bank but think i will keep Tierney and maybe just save the transfer.

    10. CABAYE4
      • 10 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      A lot comes down to City and West Ham players vs DGWers this GW.

      Not sure I will want to sell/bench any of Antonio/Bowen/Foden/Cancelo for a less favoured DGWer.

      Who of the above are you most likely to sell/bench?

      1. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        All good long-term options (as are Jota and Trent). City's COVID outbreak could make the decisions for you.

      2. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        I am benching Dias but playing Cancelo. Otherwise I have to bench TWO of

        Jota, Bowen, Son, Gray, Saka
        Kane, Dennis, King

        Even benching one is hard

    11. Alisson WondHaaland
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      Really torn on whether to FH or not so jotted down some thoughts:

      Pros:
      - Currently have no Spurs or Watford, will want 4 of them
      - Want Spurs, Leicester and Chelsea players but they have bad fixtures after DGW22
      - Have 3 from City and Villa, not ideal for 22 but dont want to transfer out because fixtures are amazing from 23

      Cons:
      - Already own 6 from Liverpool, West Ham and Everton who have great SGW fixtures, would likely only keep Trent on FH
      - DGW fixtures aren't particularly amazing anyway

      DDG, Ramsdale
      TAA, Rudiger, James, Cancelo, Livra
      Salah, Jota, Raphinha, Bilva, ESR
      Dennis, King, Antonio

      Four doublers, but need to address James and maybe Salah. 2FTs, 0.1itb - Leaving enough to get back to Salah.

      1) James, Salah > Wolves def, Son
      2) James, Salah, ESR > Wolves def, Son, Gray (-4)
      3) FH
      4) Something else to consider?

      1. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        1, but I would prefer a DGW option to a Wolves defender. Reguilón/Varane/Emerson?

        1. jdp219
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 5 Years
          12 days, 12 hours ago

          I've considered that. Just not sure how much I trust Spurs/United defenses. Reg is likely the one I would go with. Varane may be a good shout, though.

          Also was looking at Wolves' fixtures beyond gw22.

      Maddison is a conundrum for sure.

      Decent DGW, horrible fixtures from GW24 onwards. But they also have one other silver lining which is the fact they have NOR as their one game in hand. Whenever that fixture decides to plop down you suddenly will really want Maddison back in.

      I'm leaning towards getting him and benching through the tough games until that double is fulfilled.

      1. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        Decent option, but there's always a chance of rotation too.

        1. Camzy
          • 11 Years
          12 days, 12 hours ago

          With the injury crisis, I don't think they can afford to rotate him.

            12 days, 12 hours ago

            That’s actually what put me off I don’t think they’re going to play well with no vardy or recognized striker

      2. Alisson WondHaaland
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        Leicester and Spurs players are one of the big reasons Im leaning towards a FH, currently own none, want them for the double but dont want them after the double.

      3. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        I went Rafinha over him on wild card and feel pretty good about it

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Same.

        We have two matches to see how LEI set-up without any of their forwards - home to Watford in the FA Cup and then away to Everton in PL. Picture should be clearer after those two matches.

      Guys what do you think on Dalot? Keep or sell?

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        May as well keep for his double.

      2. The Suspended One
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        12 days, 12 hours ago

        My first mistake on WC, sell for me, but no rush now with the double

        1. Lucky Z
          • 4 Years
          12 days, 11 hours ago

          What double changes if he will not play?

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            12 days, 11 hours ago

            Decent bench option

            1. Lucky Z
              • 4 Years
              12 days, 11 hours ago

              Already had this decent option this GW to come in for Foden. Pleased with 0.

      3. Arteta
        • 6 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        Keep and hope he starts.

      What GW does Salah get back? Considering FH this week and keeping him until he gets back

      1. Rupert The Horse
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        A very common tactic. FH, bench, then he’s back.

      2. 1-1 at Newcastle
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        it depends on how far Egypt go in the tournament

    16. KieranKA
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      1 FT, 3.0 ITB.

      Sánchez // Foster
      Trent Cancelo Reguilón // Coufal Livramento
      Jota Silva Bowen Brownhill // Salah
      Watkins Antonio King

      (A) Salah and Watkins → Son and Ronaldo (–4)
      (B) Salah and Watkins → Son and Kane (–4)
      (C) Salah, Silva and Watkins → Son, Raphinha and Ronaldo (–8)
      (D) some option that holds Watkins

    17. Rocket Raccoon

      Evening, Gangsters.

      Should I captain Dennis, King, Son or Kane?

      Cheers in advance.

      1. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        Son/Kane. My instinct is Son

        1. Rocket Raccoon
          • 11 Years
          12 days, 11 hours ago

          Agree

      2. mdm
        • 9 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        Kane to Cr7 and c him

        1. Rocket Raccoon
          • 11 Years
          12 days, 11 hours ago

          Stuff that. He’s crap

    18. Lubic87
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 11 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      As a Kane and Salah owner, its tricky to know what to do about Ronaldo this week. Do I ignore him and go for the Son-Kane double-up? Or do I ignore Son and move Salah to a Maddison/Mount/Moura and bring Ronaldo in for Antonio for a hit? Could backfire.

      1. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        12 days, 12 hours ago

        I trust Son more than Ron

      2. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        Son is more reliable and Spurs have more doubles coming soon, and gives you an easier route back to Salah.

      3. Arteta
        • 6 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        Ignore him and double up.

      4. Lubic87
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 11 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        Son's definitely the straight-forward move, but going without Ronaldo is scary. Wish we still had Bruno as a legit option.

          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 9 Years
          12 days, 11 hours ago

          Agree… need -8 to get Ron in

    19. Arteta
      • 6 Years
      12 days, 12 hours ago

      How many of you own 2 Watford attackers? I have a feeling King will bounce back with big DGW haul and outshine Dennis.

      1. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        Me

      2. Yank Revolution
        • 10 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        That hasnt happened yet tho has it? I had both at one point, but sold King and got Antonio back for this DGW.

    20. unitednations

      Play
      A: Ramsdale + Foden/Raphinha or
      B: DDG + Maddison (-8)

      1. Rocket Raccoon
        • 11 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        A

      2. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        A

    21. King Kohli
      • 9 Years
      12 days, 11 hours ago

      Would you BB this?

      DDG* Sanchez*
      TAA Cancelo Reguilon* Keane Lowton*
      Son* Jota Bowen Raphinha Gray
      Ronaldo* Antonio King*

      1 FT 1 ITB
      Looking at Raphinha > Maddison

      1. mdm
        • 9 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        No brainer

      2. KieranKA
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        100%. However, I wouldn't sell Raphinha with his upcoming fixtures. Keane to a United/Spurs defender perhaps?

        1. King Kohli
          • 9 Years
          12 days, 11 hours ago

          Maddison looks to be a key dgwer to get with form on his side as well as good fixtures.

          Not sure if I want to double up on Spurs/Utd defence.

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            12 days, 11 hours ago

            I would give some real thought to how they will play with no strikers and that fixture list. I think he blanks over 120 min and then you have a terrible run thereafter

            1. King Kohli
              • 9 Years
              12 days, 11 hours ago

              Plan is to keep him till gw 23 and then move for Salah in 24 with a Ronaldo downgrade.

      3. 1-1 at Newcastle
        • 8 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        Why would you sell Raphina

        1. King Kohli
          • 9 Years
          12 days, 11 hours ago

          To get in Maddison who has two good fixtures compared to 1 tricky fixture for Raphinha?

          1. The Suspended One
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 8 Years
            12 days, 11 hours ago

            Not too Tricky when they don’t have a left back

    22. EL tridente
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 11 hours ago

      Who would you bring in for James? Already got Reguilon and DDG in goal...
      A) Cucarella
      B) Alonso
      C) United defender
      D) Spurs defender
      E) Burnley defender

    23. RamaJama
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      12 days, 11 hours ago

      Would you get Maddison for Bilva for free and BB this team?

      DDG
      RUDIGER, Coufal, TAA
      Foden, Jota, Son, Bowen
      Dennis, Kane (C), Broja

      Subs: Steele, Bilva, Cancelo, White

      1.4 in the bank

      1. mdm
        • 9 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        Get Maddy and bench Foden. No BB.

        1. mdm
          • 9 Years
          12 days, 11 hours ago

          Sorry, bench Broja

    24. 1-1 at Newcastle
      • 8 Years
      12 days, 11 hours ago

      Any watford fans about? Who is likely number one now Foster is back?

      1. HashAttack
        • 4 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        See Ben Foster's comment in the tweet section ... sounds like he is not ready

    25. HashAttack
      • 4 Years
      12 days, 11 hours ago

      Any reason Everton vs Newcastle wasn't scheduled in the DGW ... I was really expecting Everton to get a double 🙁

      1. mdm
        • 9 Years
        12 days, 11 hours ago

        They will probably add it later on

        1. AC/DC AFC
          • 6 Years
          12 days, 11 hours ago

          I doubt it. Why?

          1. mdm
            • 9 Years
            12 days, 11 hours ago

            Because the fixture have to be played at some point.

        It may be to do with TV rights between BT and Amazon - that was mentioned in earlier post today

        1. HashAttack
          • 4 Years
          12 days, 11 hours ago

          Amazon were going on about how the fixtures they lost would be reshown on Amazon ... but not sure why Amazon would not be able to broadcast the match, maybe they insist no other broadcasters showing matches on the same day

          Thanks - So just corporate pandering

          "No, Amazon games could only have been the Wednesday, but the EFL Cup SF moving to the Thursday blocked BT from having games on that night, so they took over the Wednesday and blocked Amazon"

        They will probably add more. Now is perfect opportunity, but it will be after the cup ties
