d*rby at home on 30th Dec? No chance.

good call on Ipswich away on New Years day though. It'll be an early kick off as well.

Home to Sheffield United and away to Ipswich on New Year's Day.

I guess the early kick off is in the morning to allow rest before the evening game back in Nottz.

Question:

Why do we always play d*rby in the middle of the autumn and the middle of the spring? When was the last time we played them in the first few matches, or as a dramatic end-of-season dogfight.

I'd imagine it's by design. TV companies appreciate games that have something riding on them during the mid-season lull and the police don't want local d*rbys with raised stakes if they can be avoided.

Sky quite often has weekends with 4 or 5 local d*rbys - that can't possibly be by accident.

That early Radi goal, that game was 5th of that season
