Beyond the fixture pile up (which is extra nuts this year), our fixtures are just downright weird. Palace again, followed by Leeds back to back four days apart in the Prem is unheard of.

Mad to think that next year will be the first year since 2018/2019 that'll be relatively normal.

Well, at the moment I feel like we are probably going to end up with something like 14/24 from the OP list. Particularly due to the amount of cup games in and around the league fixtures.

The whole point of the thread was to point out how hard the run was
I'm not really sure it's an abnormally hard run.

With Newcastle now in the mix there's now effectively a "big 7" which means 12 games against your rivals across the season, in an evenly distributed fixture list you play one of your rivals around every 3rd game.

Playing 3 of your rivals in the space of 8 games is slightly congested but nothing abnormal considering you never get a perfectly distributed fixture list.

The rest are mainly lower half teams, the fact we were too shit to keep the ball in the 2nd half against Palace is our own problem, we make hard work of nearly every game no matter the level of the opposition because we're just not that good.

We really should have a good run in after this. With the way our fixture list ended up we are playing Liverpool in 5 league games time. That’s 8 out of 10 games against last seasons top 5 already played in not much more than the first half of the season.
