    I’d imagine Mourinho would lose his brick over this - lack of preparation time etc.

    If the PL don’t begin to stick to their original rules (the game must be played if teams can assemble 14 fit players) then the season isn’t going to make it to the end imho. At best, it’ll have to spill over into late August/September.

    I can't see us playing a full season. Unless it's with the U18s.

    Difficult to do, they've set a precedent now

    Everything is easier if the Euros is cancelled or postponed, which is perfectly likely.

    I agree it would be - but only if a fairly early decision is made. It’s not going to help that much if we get to late March or April, the fixtures have piled up, and bets are still being hedged on the Euros. I can easily imagine that scenario unfolding.

    UEFA are not going to want to lose out on the money. Pushing it back later in the summer, is probably the best we can hope for

    Seems the PL is talking about moving the Fulham game to replace villa and pushing Fulham v Chelsea back to sat.

    Makes sense, so wont happen

    Does this stem from the Everton City game? there's no way City couldn't get 14 players using their academy to field a team for that game, they pushed their luck and now this is where we are and that rule is unenforceable in the league.

    Playing Fulham wouldn't be ideal but it would help us in terms of fixture congestion and is the sort of sensible flexibility the league need to think about to keep the competition on track. Logistically it doesnt look that much of a problem in terms of stadium preparation or travel.

    I hope Levy is quoting the rules at PL HQ today, I believe when our team was struck down by food poisoning the position was "tough" you have enough "fit" pros

    This was just so Pep could have the break he has always pushed for, shame on the PL for not seeing through it.

    I don't see why Fulham would be annoyed, they already have to re-arrange 2 games - The last thing they want is a fixture pile up as well - just takes a easy cup draw for a couple of teams.

    If we dont play this week we will have 2 games to fit in with an other due to be added for the postponement of our Fulham match on League Cup final weekend and should we reach QF of FA cup an other would be added. This with playing in Europe would have us playing 2/3 games a week throughout February and March.

    Completely. It was ridiculous to cancel that game and a precedent has been set. Teams can cancel games whenever they want to now

    If Fulham gets arranged for Wed then it wouldnt be ideal tactically, but our players are preparing for a game on Wed so its not the end of the world. Better to play them than no-one at all

    I think its 2 games per week yes, but the bigger point is that if Villa can pull this game using the City-Everton precedent then there will be many many more games pulled over Jan and Feb

    Fulham play Friday
    The only issue that anyone has from the premier league is that our game is the sky TV game, so the biggy for TV
    Our game could be moved to the week after in theory but that doesn’t work for Tv
