The Chelsea Home Game

Post by midlander63 » Thu Mar 15, 2018 9:15 am

Now that Chelsea are out of the Champions League do any of you 'in the know' have an idea when the clubs will decide to play this?

The international break rules it out before April but then it could be anytime after the West Brom away game (midweek).

Personally, the earlier the better for me (Wednesday 4th April after they've just played Spurs) - Burnley's remaining injuries are too long term to affect the game.

Thanks - wish it was earlier though. Son goes back to Uni on the 15th so he'll likely miss it.

He'll be a real miss for Spurs, Good player Son.

Noticed PSG played a league game this week....so some teams are allowed to play in Champions League week.

Mind you PSG are exempt from normal rules in a few areas !!

We could play the Chelsea game on the 4th April - I think they are looking over their shoulder and know this is a big 6 pointer !!

I presume it means for several weeks we will be a game in hand and therefore likely to be showing further down the league table?

No, only Leicester can catch us and they are in the Cup.

Wasn't it Arsenal, a few years ago, that rearranged a fixture around the date someone's son had to go back to university?

It can be done, give the Club a ring.

17th doesn't fit for me either. 18th is ok though.

Why would it not take place on 4th or 10th of April?
That is when City and Liverpool play each other in the net round ie when Chelsea aren`t playing.

10th isn't viable as Chelsea play on the 8th.
4th is a Wednesday, (as would be 11th) so would probably not be chosen as we normally play midweek games on Tuesday.
As CT said earlier, the most likely is 17th (I pencilled that in a while ago, and worked my diary around it, so fingers crossed).).

Wonder if it will still be on Sky when rearranged, since the original game was meant to be?
