Fixtures Eve

Post by 222gers » Wed Jun 22, 2022 9:50 pm

Well, the fixtures are announced tomorrow and we shall see the havoc wreaked by the World Cup.
A time of trepidation for us lovers of Saturday afternoons, we can only pray that Sky lay off us this season.
Fingers crossed.

That would mean a very average season of mid table mediocrity. If we are doing well Sky will notice, and if we bomb, they will also want to show the watching public.

I get your point though.

Of course the whole thing could be tons better if they scrapped the stupid rule not to show live football at 3pm on a Saturday. Lets be honest, Should I go and watch the Superhoops or stay home and watch Leeds play Wolves? No brainer - West London wins every time. That's true for most football fans too.

See your own team live or watch two teams that mean nothing to you live on TV? Why would you?
Saturday 9th November 1968: QPR V Burnley in the First Division - I saw the Hoops for the first time and my obsession began!

A tricky start, with Blackburn (A). Boro (H) and Sunderland (A), but some winnable home games in August too (Rotherham, Blackpool, Hull), so overall not too bad.

Disappointed that Sheff Utd, Norwich and Blackpool away are all midweek, as they're enjoyable weekend trips.

I’ve been looking forward to this as I’m back for Christmas to only find we’ve got back to back away games. Will make Luton but it’s not ideal for getting people together for.
