Thread: March 22nd vs Arsenal

    Default March 22nd vs Arsenal

    As this weekend has been set aside for the 6th round of the cup and assuming Arsenal beat that lot down the road, would our fixture be more than likely moved to a midweek evening, just trying to plan ahead?

    But don't think it will be the week after that Saturday as it is international week. If Arsenal progress in the Europa League it could be hard to find a date until the end of the season

    So we will have a 3 week break between Norwich and Watford - albeit 1 of these weeks is due to the international break.

    It shows how the official "mid season break" (10 days for us) was really a farce.

    Exactly, for most of our squad who donít get called up for internationals this will be a 3 week break, no excuse for burn out at the end of the season.

    Arsenal also need to rearrange their game v Man City due to be played last weekend, our game will probably be midweek late April

    I actually contacted the club after I posted the original question and was told that should Arsenal beat that lot then the game scheduled for the 22nd will definitely be on the 25th March (Wednesday) and for those that bought tickets for the game on the 22nd and can’t make the 25th will be refunded in full

    Isn't that international week?

    Nope, international squads meet up 23rd March, England play Italy 27th March.

    I did ask that and said what if Mr Ings gets a call up for the Friday game against Italy, the fella replied with nonchalant “don’t know”

    so it is International week, they cannot play then, regardless of Ings, you still have all the other foreigners going off.

    There are two midweeks that have no European football w/c 20 Apr & w/c 11 May and these tend to be the first point of call.

    However, Arsenal along with Man City, Aston Villa, Sheffield United face the prospect of having 3 games to be re-arranged (EFL final, FA Cup QF & SF). As we are an opponent out of Cups, Europe etc we are probably the most convenient to schedule the game on a European night. That makes predicting when it'll be played a bit tricky but I don't think there'll be any announcements until the FA Cup Semi Finalists & European Quarter Finalists are known.

    But another factor is that the game was originally scheduled for TV, so will still be shown whenever rearranged. That makes a Euro night very unlikely. UEFA might tolerate a game on a European night, but not a televised one.

    Man City v West Ham was rearranged for a European night and shown on sky recently wasn’t it?
    Agree it’s unusual but could happen.

    Man City v Arsenal rearranged for 11 Mar, clearly on the basis that Man C could have ended up with a fixture pile up.

    Iíd expect our game v Arsenal to be on one of the two non Euro weeks after the international break. Which one of the two will be largely down to tv scheduling, Sky can drop the game for another in these circumstances.
