Noon kicks offs are bad enough in themselves.

But expecting us to turn up in one and play our best after a draining derby on Thursday night is little short of ridiculous.

Moronic, even obscene, scheduling by the authorities.

As I said in the main match thread, would any other major European league mess their big clubs around like this?

When you're challenging for trophies you play lots of games, simple. We've revelled in it previously.

As the thread title suggests, we were shit and did not deserve to win.

That doesn't alter the fact that expecting us to play another match that soon is taking the piss.

So when should it have been played? Tomorrow? Giving less days to prepare for Celta? It's not the fixture lists problem we can't kill off a game.

Bellers summed it up perfectly. It's a heavy run of fixtures that challenges the teams mental make up of which we have absolutely none of.

Just playing it this afternoon would have been (probably significantly) better. But no, the greedy TV gods insisted otherwise
