And Fulham are a good team too and with shed loads of money available if necessary.

As are Wolves also.

If Watford and Bournemouth can batter us the sky's the limit.

Not that I am saying the fixtures are unfair to us, but the schedule in this country really is a joke. 

Look at our fixtures then note how often we have 2 home or 2 away games back to back. March we have 4 games, 3 are away.

Take a look at Spain, Germany and Italy.........they play HAHAHA......all season, with fixture 1 being the same opponent as fixture 20 and so on. How hard can it be to replicate that, or have something close to that?

The Premier League fixture list is doctored, partly to prevent fans having to travel too far at Christmas and mainly because it's THE MOST EXCITING LEAGUE IN THE WORLDTM.

Don't have access to the original times article as it's subscription but it' been exposed as fact that the fixture schedule is fixed for broadcasting. Then again that leads to increased revenues for the club, which it was recently announced will now be distributed less evenly and in favour of the top six.

^Well we know fixture lists are "fixed".  As in the article, and even CL "draws" find a way to make sure teams of the same country don't meet even while they claim balls are drawn randomly out of a bowl.

But if there is a secret trick or algorithm then of course it can be abused.

As with VAR if the main priority was to avoid bias this would all be done very differently.  Instead they seem determined to avoid accusations of bias while actually entrenching it into the system.
