Presumably the Chelsea game now needs to be added to the list of fixtures to be rearranged now that they've made the LC final?

No obvious replacement that weekend either.

Games to be rearranged:

Watford

Only three free midweek dates available before the end of the season, with the first one not until 19th April. Seven matches to be rearranged.

The obvious thing to do would be to scrap the winter break. We could fit another three games in there. But at the moment it looks like that is still going ahead.


UEFA's rules don't allow league games to be played at the same time as UEFA games, so losing to Randers wouldn't be much help if we can't use the free midweeks anyway. It's likely that UEFA will relax this rule this season, if there's no other option.

Even before this pile up, the whole winter break is just bollocks.

Take 2 weeks out of the season to play the same amount of games in a shorter space of time?

Makes no sense at all and even more so now as we've had about a month off anyway!

Think I read they already have relaxed the rule
