      Chelsea v Liverpool - on or off? (Now postponed)

      Suggestions that games in the capital are going to be called off for a second week running.

      Premier League have an exceptionally convenient excuse to drop all 3 of the games in London this week if they cite 'policing'.

      What should happen is we should play Wolves at Anfield and the Wolves-City game this weekend can be postponed.

      Whatever happens they need to make a decision on this sooner rather than later.

      It seems they are also postponing the European games that should have been played in London.
      I'm a bit surprised UEFA allowed this, to be honest.

      It's to do with the police numbers. Start of the Queen lying in state.

      Not that arsed. Chelsea would have had the new manager bounce so would have started strong favourites.

      Jam packed season because of the World Cup and we had only 3 games in September.  Should sack the international friendlies off.

      Policing reasons. Not enough to go round! Police provide what they call 'Mutual Aid' to other Forces for major incidents etc, so presumably all down to having to supply police to go to London. (Or at least that's how I understand it)

      Thank god this game is also called off. Only need to suffer through 90 min tomorrow again  :D

      As sh*t as we are at the moment we can take any extra minute that we don’t have to play to get the team straight again.

      Normally i'd be unhappy with the postponement, but under the circumstances, good time to get some extra tactical training in.

      Fook knows when they are meant to fit these games in though, I don’t think this is great for us tbh. More time in the training ground but we’re gonna be looking at sone ridiculous fixture congestion

      Some seem relieved the Chelsea game is off. I'm not, I want us out there playing, all it will mean is fixtures will pile up. World cup year is messing with the fixtures as it is. Besides it's the footie season...so where's the feckin' footie..

      I'd vote for binning International friendlies full stop...Usually extremely dull and a total waste of time

      Right thing to do. If they think that they are unsafe, it is the way forward.

      I am alright with this break since we had a terrible form. If it was the other way round, it would be unfortunate because you would want to keep the ball rolling.
