Re: This stupid fixture list
If and when you have time, look at some of our earlier seasons in the Isthmian League, and you'll find this season's style when we are playing both fixtures against a club early is more commonplace than it has been in recent seasons..
In 1963-64, our first season, we'd played both matches against Ilford in our first 4 league games, and both matches against Barking in our first 8!
In 1972-73, we had played both matches against Clapton, Hitchin, Tooting, Walthamstow, and Wycombe by the 4th November.
In September 1978 we acheived the ultimate of playing a league fixture against Hitchin on a Tuesday night and the return at Hitchin on the following Saturday!!!
At least we're not in our Athenian Laegue era, when match programmes would frequently state that "next week's opponents are not known, so watch the local press for details"!!!
Let's be honest here, it doesn't matter how ANY league arranges its fixture list, there will always be people complaining about the list. You only have to listen to some of the comments Premiership and Championship managers make about their league fixtures.
