    They literally said in the statement that they'd already been speaking with the PL

    City and Wolves a full 20 hours between them and the next club.
    Meanwhile at the other end Liverpool and Sheffield United a full 20 hours between them and the next club.

    Yep, nothing to see here.

    Don’t Liverpool play third place Leicester as well over Christmas?

    The 2 penalties not given were NOT OUR fault. We were the better team by far... by far I said it at the time and people were saying Spurs weren't that bad, their results since have only strengthened the assertion that they were nowhere near us on the day. Yes we missed chances but we also had a goal ruled out on the slightest of margins, missed out on two penalties that were clearer... it's simple maths.

    No lets flagellate ourselves even though we know we were hard done by... "it was all our fault" *whip* "it was all our fault" *whip* *whip* ;)

    It's ok to be pissed off with the officials over that game and to consider Spurs incredibly lucky too(it may even help the team to see it that way). Like I said our losses were more costly and nobody is making excuses for them. So the logic of some saying people just can't take dropping points is wonky. It's the same deal with noticing the "luck" Liverpool are getting. On top of that, they have not started this season as well as the table suggests. They are conceding considerably more goal scoring chances on average than last season, last time I checked but teams aren't taking them. Is it the air of invincibility causing teams to bottle it?

    No I was genuinely asking about the NIGHT games ... 7:45pm kickoffs on Saturday ... apparently Sky won that package and so they have 8 games to show at Saturday 7:45pm kickoffs and they haven’t yet shown any ... so I’m wondering what part of the season they’re keeping it for?

    The discussion earlier in this thread had started around now since Friday Night Football had come in (Fri 7:45pm slot) we’ve seen other teams play in that slot but City haven’t yet gotten a single FNF game ... and that raised the questions about the new SNF slot, no, not the 5:30pm one, the even later 7:45pm one ... and no one seems to know what’s going on with that? What part of the season is Sky holding on those 8 games for??

    This below is from BBC when the packages were awarded by PL to the broadcasters:


    Eight Premier League games will be played in a new 19:45 slot on Saturdays under the terms of a new broadcast package from the 2019-20 season.

    Broadcasters will bid for rights to show 200 live matches, more than 50% of the league's 380 games and an increase on the current deal's 168.

    What can broadcasters bid for? (all times GMT/BST)
    Package A:
    32 matches on Saturdays at 12:30
    Package B: 32 matches on Saturdays at 17:30
    Package C: 24 matches on Sundays at 14:00 and eight matches on Saturdays at 19:45
    Package D: 32 matches on Sundays at 16:30
    Package E: 24 matches on Mondays at 20:00 or Fridays at 19:30/20:00 and eight matches on Sundays at 14:00
    Package F: 20 matches from one Bank Holiday and one midweek fixture programme
    Package G: 20 matches from two midweek fixture programmes

    This is so blatantly biased ... if anyone isn’t clear as day on the bias then god help them, you can’t argue with them within reason ...

    look at the 16 teams in the middle, all pretty close by ... who gets effected the most, Wolves and Us ... who gets the most relief, Liverpool and Sheffield Utd ... and during all this who does Liverpool have to play (yes, Wolves) and who do we play ... get it now?? It’s gone beyond just giving them an extra days rest here but looks like deliberately our opponents during this time when we’d need to rotate or rest or play with some tired legs and minds, the opponents games have even been put in a way that those (Wolves) playing them (Liverpool) would go in disadvantaged vs our (City’s) opponents (Sheffield Utd) come more rested to give us an even harder time of it than it would have been ... no one should have any illusions left, it’s pretty blatant!
