The fact Spurs' have so many games in hand is down to other clubs, requesting games be called off, not planning by them, equally I think Tottenham would actually like to appeal being removed from Europe but probably won’t or can’t now because they have no free dates for the games.

It's obviously fun to be amused by Spurs' complaints, but, at the crux of the issue, we clearly have Arsenal obtaining a delay owing to mismanagement of their squad. Illness is just the excuse.

I personally think the other 19 clubs havent made enough of it all.

Arsenal are likely to qualify for continental competition this season after this helping hand.

The whole thing stinks.

Arsenal have only three more points than ManUtd who are still struggling.
They have two games more than Tottenham and only two points more.

I'm confident that they'll implode soon.

I'd say given the length of that whinging post about poor old Spurs, he's got more rabbit than Sainsbury's.

I hate Spurs with passion, and actually don't mind Arsenal at all....but they have taken the proper piss over this and acted far worse than Spurs

They seem to have really taken a turn for the worse since Pep's gimp has taken over

Oh I am so looking forward to the inevitable meltdown from clubs expected to play every 2 days towards the end of the season.

Thing is, knowing the PL they'll get a nice little extension.

Arsenal are out the FA Cup and have no Europe so they actually had a bit of flexibility with which to play their “let’s take a convenient postponement” card. They’re probably gonna suffer with fixture congestion far less than those around them including us

Premier league considering changing the covid postponement rules.. so if we get a lot of injuries with some covid we won’t get the same benefit as Arsenal.

Terrible planning by the PL, it’s a mess of a season.

The season is starting to have the feel of a season that's not the same as other seasons pre covid

The BBC reports that the Premier League is considering changing postponement rules, presumably in part because certain clubs are getting away with complaining that their African players (how could they have anticipated?) have been called away for the Africa Cup of Nations. Only Covid issues and exceptional injury/illness outbreaks should lead to a postponement, international call-ups have never been a reason for putting games off. But the changes, if they happen, are set to come in after the winter break, which is also after the end of AFCON. That'll teach 'em not to try and manipulate the system!

Unrelated to this thread but Arsenal related, I see there is to be an investigation into irregular betting patterns in an early season Arsenal game where an unnamed Arsenal player was booked very early. (BBC Sport website)
Another example of their quality

Depends who they have to play. Other teams might still be in cups

If they get something at Spurs and qualify for the Champion's League by a point or three,then there will be a massive uproar.

Ive just realised that their midfield hatchet man misses the game against Burnley instead of Spurs - even that stinks. The whole set up is rotten to the core. What really annoyed me was the league saying we had to play Norwich midweek when there’s teams with 5 games in hand. A fresh team would have done so much better against Leeds at the weekend.
