Boxing Day fixtures, although a feature of the festive period, are becoming more troublesome by the year.
On 26th December this year we`re scheduled to entertain Southampton, at Craven Cottage.
It`s a fixture that many will be looking forward to but a fixture that could well be a pain in the backside to get to.
With the National Rail network shut down for the day, supporters may now have to navigate their way across London without any Tube trains.
It appears that the Tube network could, if a last ballot fails to prevent it from doing so, be closed.
All I`ll say is whatever happened to that famous festive saying - Goodwill to all men?
