Coleman Blasts Fixture Schedule!

Coleman Blasts Fixture Schedule!

With the nation being subjected to some abject international football, those that love the domestic game find themselves starved of action.

It`s a point that is not lost on our manager, Chris Coleman. Speaking recently, Coleman lambasted the current situation that has seen Fulham allocated two games in four weeks, this is what he had to say,

'The fixtures amaze me because at the start of the season you play three games in the first week.'

'Then towards the end of the season when the players are fighting fit, you have a two-week break and we've got just two games in a month.'


Unfortunately, this break comes at a time when Coleman would be looking for his side to secure their Premiership status for next season, a point he`s not afraid to put across,

'It's nonsense but we have to get on with it and it's the same for everybody. We want games thick and fast because we want to seal our fate.'

'This is the business end of the season. March, April and May are where teams are either celebrating or very unhappy. That's when you found out your fate.'

'The pressure isn't on Charlton so much as they're already been written off, as have West Ham. They went through all of that just before Christmas when they were losing games."

'But the pressure is on Wigan, Manchester City, Sheffield United and a little bit on us as well."

'We've been clear of it but the pressure is on us not to get sucked into the dogfight, whereas Charlton and West Ham are saying they have nothing to lose because they're been down there all year."

'There's more pressure on the teams just below us than the on the bottom three.'


Roll on the weekend; let`s get this show back on the road.

Well said Coleman, at last someone fights the corner of us normal clubs. Winter break, fixture congestion, it's all we hear about recently - Well that's why it's an achievement if you win anything morons. One or two games a week, every week, at respectable times is all i ask. Is that too much? Obviously yes.

so do I! With a crowded fixture schedule ahead of us, our quest for the quadruple could come off the rails big time due to tiredness and injuries!
