Re: 2012-13 English Premier League/Cups Thread (What's the MATA, AVB? Feeling BLUE?)
It's in December just before the Xmas period so it's not a great time for a long distance travel to play games and then have to come back for the Xmas period where teams often struggle with all the games in a short space. Plus if they pick up injuries to key players like Ramires and Torres in that period then they're squad looks a lot weaker. That being said though they're Xmas fixtures are - Villa (H), Norwich (A), Everton (A), QPR (H). Fuck. We've got Swansea (A), Newcastle (H), West Brom (H), Wigan (A). Fuck. City have got Reading (H), Sunderland (A), Norwich (A), Stoke (H). Fuck.
