Does anyone know how fixtures are picked? Are they not random and then swapped around by Sky etc to make interesting super sundays?

16/17 three out of the last six were vs Arsenal, Man City, Spurs
17/18 was apparently kind to us with only two top 6 sides in the last few - Arsenal and Spurs
18/19 last three matches were against Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City
19/20, three of our last five matches were against Arsenal, Man Utd, Spurs
20/21, last three are against Chelsea,Man Utd, Spurs

How does it end up being that we have awful run-ins?

No, it's not random. It's actually picked by people.

Does that mean we all get shafted out of £70

If you’re stupid enough to go to the ridiculous farce of a game, they’ll knock that off yer seventy bars

Otherwise it’s safely stored in the King Power bank account, where it’s been all year

Dread to think what the prices will be if they're only allowed 10k fans.

And guaranteed it will be 'having to cover matchday costs'
Interesting situation perhaps.

The club may be between a rock and a hard place on this one; financially, only 10k fans at a 'not taking the piss' ticket price might cost them. They might actually prefer, financially, to NOT have (so few) fans allowed in. Yet if they don't, or charge a break even price, then there might be uproar.

All my conjecture BTW. I've no idea what match costs are, let alone a break even ticket price.

We'll only be permitted to allow 8k fans in, as it's 10k or 25% of capacity, whichever is smaller. A lot of those will be hospitality tickets, I would suggest.
