French league has top flight games tonight.

Thought that wasn't allowed and is reason we all expect GW32 to be full of doubles?
I found this on TalkSports website from 2 years ago saying this 'understanding' had now expired

thanks for moving this into this thread. Should have thought of that myself.

Hmmm. So does that mean there is no need for GW31 fixtures to all be rescheduled to GW32, and they could instead be spread around a bit? There are a lot of managers assuming a big DGW32 is coming, as well as a smaller DGW35, and this must at least throw a shred of potential spanner into those works?

Is this true? Tottenham-Brighton in GW33 could be a blank even if Brighton are not playing in FA Cup semi-finals? Brighton also have their Chelsea fixture to be rearranged!

Yes, looks legit, though an unlikely scenario.

Why is it unlikely? Because Tottenham's new stadium is supposed to be ready in GW33?

I personally think they would move it to the Friday night. Earlier in the season they had a NFL game on the Wembley surface less than 24 hours before Spurs hosted Man City (the game with hardly any grass and all the markings confusing everyone :lol: ), so I don't think an extra football match 24 hours before would stop them.

Ha! Didn't the 2011 London riots lead to a Spurs - Everton fixture being postponed on the opening weekend and everyone getting an extra wildcard? That would shake things up a bit were the scenario repeated this year! :lol:

They used to host the playoffs on three consecutive days didnt they.

It all may be quite different in a few years time, with the rumblings that the CL could soon be moved to weekends (with the league games switched to corresponding midweek, in the latest not-thinking-of-the-fans direction of travel).

I guess there would still be similar DGW/BGW prospects anyway, no? I think it would be different only if there were fewer matches (all competitions combined) and/or a longer season, or am I missing something?

Imagine proposing a 1995-style 4 teams down, 2 up promotion relegation scenario, with today's money for staying in the Prem?! There would be carnage.

So, first confirmed GW31 blank is Watford v Southampton.

On the odds, maybe looking at 5 blanks rather than 4 now.

What are we all hoping for from the FA Cup this weekend?


With all chips left I’d rather the route through 31-35 be the most difficult possible!

Chelsea to get knocked out would be nice. I don't have any Chelsea but getting three of them by gw31 would be extremely convenient for my squad setup. It would also mean Fabianski has a game in GW33 and Digne would have a game in GW31.

The draw is also important for GW33. With Brighton, Millwall, Watford, Wimbledon, Palace, Derby, Bristol C, Wolves, Swansea and Brentford still in the FA Cup (some to disappear soon), the QF draw could be interesting if lots of them get drawn against each other. For me, Brighton's exit either today or in QF would help with Son in GW33 and Palace's unlikely exit this weekend would help with Son in GW31. All so complicated. Which is good...
