busy xmas fixtures

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce says the festive fixture schedule is to blame for his side suffering four injuries in the 3-0 home loss to Leicester. ... "Asking players to play four games in 10 days is ludicrous and today is the consequence of that," said Bruce.

it's the same for everyone man stop complaining about it

personally although weve lost all of ours ive thoroughly enjoyed all the footie over xmas...good to watch these feckers dragged out of their comfort zone, theyre getting a winter break next month anyway, it was shrek always whingeing years back that footballers shud be able to spend more time with their families at xmas instead of playing 4 games in 10 days ffs........unbelievable jeff!

RE: busy xmas fixtures

Exactly right it’s been the same for every team. The reason we lost is because we are not very good and the other teams are either slightly better or much better in Leicester’s case. Simples.

"Klopp, an outspoken critic of the Premier League schedule"

oh is he now?? well fuck off back to the bundesliga and enjoy die winterpause.......what makes the premier league such a triumph to win imo is teams have to come thru such adversity, remain just as professional when its -5 degrees and 4games in ten days as they are in bright sunny summer days and they will prevail, you dont hear mountaineers climb halfway up everest then complain that its too cold too high and the airs too thin they cant breathe..they knew that when they signed up for it, just get your head down and get on with it, thats how we won two world wars innit ?

Solskjaer and Santo moaning about having a replay.

Well perhaps they should have tried harder to win in normal time. Man Utd didn't have a shot on target in the first half.

RE: busy xmas fixtures

Klipperty Klopp is right. It is too much for players to play in games in such short space of time and we've suffered the most it appears. He's lucky though that his squad has a lot more quality and can afford to rotate and not lose as much quality.

Obviosly the ££££s is more important (cramming in as many games over the holiday period etc) and player's injuries is not a priorty, but he does make a very valid point.

no he isnt right, and i spelt out in my post the reason why he's not right...to win the premier league a team has to prove it can still compete and win a bunch of games in a short period of time in the middle of winter, now that should be seen as a challenge rather than a travesty of justice by the moaning minnies. Rolleyes

We now have another 4 games in 10 days...

11th Jan Wolves away
14th Jan Rochdale home
18th Jan Chelski home
21st Jan Neverton away

..."Oooh no, we're far too precious to play that many games, and its still cold aswell, boo hoo" ........fuck off and get on with it!!

RE: busy xmas fixtures

When it causes a ridiculous number of injuries it does. Maybe for next season then they should play every day and wearing slippers?

He's lucky he has quality in abundance and can afford a few injuries.

Fortunately for us we have a few players returning soon. Hopefully other teams around us have the same or more especially to their key players.

but is that not the same for all the teams? obviously as the other person said the depth of squad makes it easier to cope with so many games, but theres not much anyone can do about that, you either have citeh owners who invest in a squad worth megabucks and try and win titles and champions leagues, or you have our owner who invests the bare minimum in the squad and hopes it will be enough to finish 17th.

We beat arsenal in the 1952 fa cup final, by the end of the match arsenal only had seven men on the pitch, so many injuries and no subs in those days...................those were the rules, shit happens, get on with it.

RE: busy xmas fixtures

Not necessarily due to tv media moving games. But even if it was, if you were a player you would want to play every game and the medical experts are saying there is not enough time between games for players.

It's obviously not goin to change but any manager's criticism of it is valid.

For us to get strength in depth we need to perform to our best more often than not and consistently. It is possible even under Ashley but we need to buy well and remain in the Premier league. Shit managers and shit players cost us more than Ashley's tightness.

Spending £40mil on a player when he could have got a much cheaper one? What was that about?

RE: busy xmas fixtures

Let’s be honest Ashley has contributed to a lot of the shit times we have had to endure in the past decade and more. We have had other shit owners in my lifetime apart from him but they didn’t hang around as long as he has.

Probably because we actively boycotted against those previous owners and didn't put up the shit Ashley has put us through

Might have done not sure to be honest the crowds were not as large back in the 80s due to the size of the ground. In the 70s they fluctuated the ground certainly held 50+ thousand for part of that decade. I was just a teenager back then so didn’t get involved in politics just went to the games in 70s regularly. Not so much in 80s as I moved down south.

mike ashleys had far too much of his own way and basically gets away with murder with little or no abuse from the sheep when he attends the match...not like the old days when it seemed chanting "sack the board" every home game was the norm. Rolleyes

RE: busy xmas fixtures

It's more the fact that he has too much money. Previous owners have either had to cut their losses losing money or have been wafted money at them they couldn't refuse.

Other clubs have the luxury of wiping debt when a new club owner comes in which gives them a big advantage. We will power through though.
