So Newcastle (a) has now been postponed due to CC Final.

This means, together with Palace (h) and Bouremouth (a), there are now three fixtures that need rearranging before the end of the season.

I'm not really sure why it's taking so long to rearrange the Palace and Bournemouth games. Yes, we need to keep weeks free for possible FA Cup fixtures, but surely there are some vacant weeks?

Don't think it will help our European ambitions if we have a load of fixture congestion at the end of the season.

Anyone care to have a guess when these games might be played?

The more successful we become the more congestion we will get, and the more we will hear Bob bitching like Pep :LOL:

Palace and Bmuff games were postponed in Sep - plenty of opportunities to rearrange since then. Barber out!

Almost certainly have another one to rearrange as well (Man United at home, due to FA Cup).

None of these will be until at least March so we will have quite a backlog
It's why I can't understand why the two games in Sep weren't rearranged sooner when the clubs have had planty of weeks with no mid-week matches (this week, for instance).

We've got a free slot on 25 Feb now Newcastle has been moved, so can play Boremuff or Palarse then

It's baffling isn't it. Very real chance we will have to squeeze four matches into a short space of time when we could have rattled off a couple of these already. Odd. Can only think someone is being difficult for reasons unknown?

Have booked a week away w/c 6th March, nailed on one of these games will be then.

Hoping that they might just shift that whole 'matchday' to the Sunday, if it's decided they can't clash with the actual Coronation day.
...or to the bank Holiday on the Monday?
