Safe to say if spurs win next round of Europa league, this will be changed to the Sunday?

Yes. It's also FA Cup 6th round weekend, so if either team makes it to that stage the game will be moved.

The Watford one is the one to go for if wanting to get the most advance booking possible, also one would think that having Watford v Palace on TV once in a season (Dec 26th 2016) is enough for anyone and that the March 18th match won't move from it's 3pm slot, can't be sure, but it's a safer bet than March 11th and Spuz possible involvement in multiple cups

What Feb match are you doing? I plumed for Feb 25th v Boro when it became clear that prices weren't coming down (and they've gone up by 40e since booking), but Ryanair could conceivably flash sale it I suppose...

If you've ever done Quidco, look out for the 10 bonus if you haven't used them (Quidco) in a while. Will get all London day Travelcard including out of/in to Gatwick for Feb 25th for under 2 (after getting the 10 quidco bonus + standard quidco cashback) from VirginTrains.

When PayPal think you don't like them anymore, they do a similar free 5 enticement which can be used for a virtually free LGW-Selhurst-LGW return.

If we are both out of the cup and Spurs are still in the Europa League this will be played on Sunday 12th March with either a 1:30 or 4:00 kick-off. This may depend on what game is still televised by Sky on that Sunday. If no Sky TV game is still scheduled then it can return to a 3:00 kick-off. I would think that Sainsbury's and our corporate sales would prefer us to have a later kick-off.

If either team are still in the cup the game will be postponed with the most likely date for the rearranged game being 26th April.

Having had a brief look at the various football calendars, I think that this is likely to move to Tues 28th/Weds 29th March in the event of Spurs reaching the quarters of the FA Cup. That certainly seems to be the first available date after the original fixture.

That's still in international week. eg ROI play a friendly on Tues 28th. England/Scotland/NI & many others play qualifiers on Sun 26th. Can't see a Premier League fixture being played 48/72 hrs later!

France, Belgium, Netherlands and South Korea all have international fixtures on Tuesday 28th March.

Only 2 midweeks are available until the end of the season if games are not played in the European fixture weeks - the week after the semi-finals and the last week of the season.

The game would probably move to Wednesday 26th April as Spurs could playing on the previous Sunday after a Europa League fixture.

There could even be a scenario where because of TV picks we play Liverpool away on Monday 23rd April and then play Spurs on Thursday 27th April with the game against Burnley moved back to the Sunday.

Unless something dramatically changes by then, they'll most likely be one of 5 teams going for the remaining 3 champions league spots. They'll beat us whenever we play though so we'd probably get it out of the way sooner so we aren't too tired for the games where we might get something.

I think it's a blessing in disguise. Might be really nice to have an extra home game just as the season is drawing to a close. Ok, it's against Spurs, but they may have other priorities by then.

But the first thing we need to do is win the next 3 games.

Schedule as it currently is for Spurs:

12th March - FA Cup Quarter-Finals
19th March - Southampton (H)
26th March - International Week - No Fixture

All matches from here could be changed for TV as well, as nothing is announced after the 19th March for the Premier League

1st April - Burnley (A)
4th April - Swansea (A)
8th April - Watford (H)
15th April - Bournemouth (H)
22nd April - Leicester (A) or FA Cup Semi-Finals
29th April - Arsenal (H)

6th May - West Ham (A)
13th May - Man. U. (H)
21st May - Hull (A)

Looking at the above, basically we are playing mid-week in April - I would imagine the 11th or 12th April - depending if fixtures are moved for either team the weekend before for TV. That would mean our fixtures in April are:

1st - Chelsea - Away
5th - Southampton - Away
8th - Arsenal - Home
11th or 12th - Tottenham - Home
15th - Leicester - Home
22nd - Liverpool - Away
29th - Burnley - Home

11th/12th and 18th/19th April are Champions League nights. Although Spurs are out of Europe, it's still unlikely that our game against them will be rescheduled on a European week. 25th/26th April is more likely.

Was it not the case a few years ago that the Premier League basically told UEFA that they could shove the ruling up their backside in terms of playing Domestic fixtures on "European" Nights? I seem to remember a Merseyside derby being played on a Wednesday this time of year because Liverpool were in the League Cup final as well as having FA Cup fixtures.

I am pretty confident that the English Football League signed the agreement that stated that they would not have fixtures during "European" nights, but, the Premier League did not. UEFA then said that the Premier League was a part of the English Football League and therefore had to abide by it.

Norwich_Eagle
27-02-2017, 05:17 PM
I've found the answer to my own question on http://www.skysports.com/football/news/11095/8673708/fa-punished-by-uefa-for-playing-domestic-fixtures-on-same-night-as-european-games

So it appears that Premier League and the two cup competitions cannot clash. As a result, we are probably looking at the end of April being the earliest available date.

EddieEdwards
27-02-2017, 07:46 PM
Cup replays and rearranged Premier League games have been held on Euro nights occasionally in the last couple of years, in cases where it was virtually impossible to find an alternative date. But the last week of April and 16th/17th May are free weeks and will almost certainly be used for rearranged matches before they start thinking about other weeks.

EFL fixtures are regularly held on Euro nights - it would be impossible for the EFL to fit all their fixtures in otherwise!

There has been some mention of the Euro no-clash rule being discontinued in future seasons but I'm not sure exactly what's happening about that.

There has been some mention of the Euro no-clash rule being discontinued in future seasons but I'm not sure exactly what's happening about that.

Association of European Professional Football Leagues (EPFL) had a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with UEFA to not play premier league, FA cup or League Cup games at the same time as European fixtures and the Premier League has previously had 1.1million deducted from their share of funds for such unavoidable fixture clashes.
In October last year following disagreement over changes to qualification for European club competitions due to be implemented in 2018 they gave notice that MoU would be withdrawn and this notice finishes on 15th March 2017 so in theory games could be played on European nights after this date.


Spurs game most likely to be 25/ 26th April depending on possible semi-final. Unlikely to be televised as, assuming they will still televise the same games, the 4 TV games postponed from 11th March will be rearranged for either this mid-week or the last week of the season .

Arsenal, Southampton, Manchester City and Manchester United could all have 3 postponed games and only 2 midweek slots available especially as Sky want to leave Manc derby till last week of the season.

11 and 12 April is the Champions League quarter finals, 13 April is Europa League quarter finals. See post #51 - nothing to stop rearranged Prem games being played then, but remains to be seen if the likes of BT sport (who have paid for loads of coverage) would kick up a fuss.

But as you say, Palace playing on the Monday night and again on the following Saturday makes it extremely unlikely anyway.

The online ticket site shows the Palace v Spurs match as being at 3pm on Thursday 1st June, but clicking on the more information button leads to a screen saying the date and time has yet to be confirmed. Presumably the software demands a date so they put a dummy date in. You don't see many Thursday afternoon kick offs outside of international tournaments...

This isn't that bad. At least we have two games in a row at Selhurst and don't have to make a trip up North in between games. We are much fitter these days so I'm sure the players will be ready for it and Allardyce will have a plan to get them ready.

When do you think it should have been played? Why is this date any more ridiculous than any other?

Why not before the man.city game and after the Burnley game ?

It was always going to be that night as there is no European games that week (Premier League would proabably rather they didn't clash) and we couldn't play on the Tuesday.

Unfortunately for us, Spurs are probably the fittest team in the league. On the plus side, the sooner it is, the more likely it is that Kane will still be out.
I saw somewhere the Kan is targeting the Arsenal match for his return which is on 30th April.

Has to be the 26th April for me as i'm in Thailand 07/04 - 24/04, don't want to be missing more games

Thanks Premier League computer thing

I didn't realise Kane was out injured. Let's hope he takes time to recover fully than rush back

Just checking before heading to the ticket trading thread: I'm guessing this sold out months ago?

The ticket site only lists Chelsea as sold out at the moment.

Some people will return tickets now the date is announced. I would give it a few days.

I was going to ask how as the pick seats button was greyed out when I checked earlier today, but just checked again and also snagged two seats in the Arthur. :p

The rearranged game just happens to coincide with a trip home which means I can actually go to more than one Palace game in a season for the first time since 2007/08!

Chelsea (A) - 1st April
Southampton - (A) - 5th April
Arsenal (H) - 10th April
Leicester (H) - 15th April
Liverpool (A) - 23rd April
Tottenham (H) - 26th April
Burnley (H) - 29th April

I was thinking that April was going to be a nightmare but to be fair 5 of the 7 games are either at home or in London, one is a little hour drive to Southampton which only leaves Liverpool as a big trip - 8 days after a home game. Although it is congested it is not physically demanding in terms of travel etc.

Liverpool, Watford & WBA have 5 games
Bournemouth, Burnley, Everton, Hull, Southampton, Stoke, Sunderland, Swansea & West Ham have 6 games
Us, Arsenal Chelsea, Manchester City, Middlesbrough & Tottenham everyone else have 7 games
Leicester have 8 games
Manchester United have 9 games

The two small breaks our players have had may be to our advantage. Lose two key players and it could go tits up very quickly for any of the bottom teams.

So, for or against Spurs in the FA Cup? Looking at the permutations:
Chelsea win by the odd goal in a dour but unremarkable match- Spurs disappointed but looking to bounce back to keep their second place safe. Spurs win in the opposite variant - Spurs strut their stuff in Wednesday's follow up. Chelsea wipe the floor with Spurs. Totally demoralized Spurs capitulate further vs Palace. Chelsea win after extra time and penalties- Spurs heartbroken but vow to make up for it v Palace. Energy sapping Wembley turf end up drawing at Selhurst. Spurs hammer Chelsea, go on the lash and get spanked down to earth by Palace. My guess is that we will benefit from a tired Spurs and get a draw or possibly a narrow win because of the energy levels.

Got to hope for extra time. Not sure the result will matter, depending on how they are doing in the league by then - if they are still top 4 by then (which you'd expect) then regardless of the cup, they'll want to push on and make the Champions League.

Wow, we are going to have to accumulate as many points as possible (2 wins Saints and Leicester) would be huge and really take a lot of the pressure off, before that hectic 6 day period when we play Liverpool, Spurs then Burnley. By which time we will probably be knackered mentally and physically.

I purchased 2 tickets for this match nearly 3 weeks ago and they still haven't been delivered, anyone having a similar issue for this match? They are usually pretty prompt with sending them out.
I guess I'll have to contact the box office.

Been trying to sell my seats for tonight's game on that Twickets website (as instructed by the box office). Can't believe nobody wants them.
Does anyone actually get referred there by the box office as I've never heard of it before.

RobertCPFC

The first I heard of it was yesterday at bottom of the page saying the Spurs game has sold out. I would have expected the club to make a big thing of mentioning the resale partner especially as I'm sure the demand is there.

I don't know about twickets but do they only sell at face value or less? I think it's a good idea to do this but I don't want tickets for sale over the market value that I know some places do.

laughing_gravy
26-04-2017, 02:21 PM
They sell them at face value but where you used to get all of your money back for your season ticket seat, Twickets takes a cut to sell them.
It's good that there's a process to make sure only members get them but that's never foolproof anyway.

They know that if someone contacts them trying to barter they are Spurs fan
