It really shouldn’t annoy me but it really does. I can’t cope with it. Why do so many people say “x has three games a week” - it very rarely happens. I reckon it will happen to us once this season and that was the 7 days where we had 3 games between a Thursday and a Wednesday but that is over different weeks.

Can we please agree to say there are 2 games and not 3 please?

A week does not go from Saturday to Sunday the following week after a game on Thursday. It goes from Sunday one week to the end of Saturday the next.

Thanks.

I'm with you on this. If you're playing every weekend and every midweek, you can just about, at a stretch, say "we have three games this week", but in that case you've only got one next week. "Three games a week", my arse.

This thread feels like a great opportunity to link to a great piece of internet history...

Two bodybuilders argue over how many days there are in a week
That was a truly incredible piece of forum art. Thanks for reminding me of it.

Thank you for writing this, I’ve been thinking the same for ages! 😂

So we had 3 games last week. Bournemouth, Chelsea & Villa. But only 1 this week, Marseille.

Nearly spot on. In my head, a week starts on a Monday morning, after the w/e has finished.

Was it eventually agreed that Josh was joshing, or was he just thicker in the head than the bicep?

These players, unlike, for instance, NHS workers are highly paid for the job they do.............think about the next time you have the unfortunate visit to A&E ?

It basically only happens around Christmas during the usual fixture pileup

Love how the thread has meandered from the OP’s point and is now just about match schedule and not about people saying a week is 8 days.
