Kick-off times for Villa (H) and West Ham (A) confirmed

Wednesday, 21 April, 2021 7comments  |  Jump to last

Everton's next two fixtures after Friday have now been scheduled and broadcasters confirmed.

The home game against Aston Villa has been moved back a few hours to 8 pm on Saturday 1 May while the away match at West Ham will now take place on Sunday 9 May with a 4:30 pm kick-off.

That means the Blues will have a little over 48 hours between the end of that game and the kick-off against Sheffield United at Goodison Park on Tuesday 11 May.

Everton's postponed fixture against Aston Villa away still does not have a rescheduled date.

Have they completely forgotten about the postponed Villa away game?

I found it baffling at the time once they abandoned the match in January they should have instantly had a new date lined up in agreement with both clubs, just weird.

Villa A should have been played 3 months ago on 16th January and we have been on catch up ever since with a game in hand.

We now have to play 5 matches in 3 weeks in May, despite neither club being involved in Europe. Ridiculous.

Yet another example of how manipulative the Broadcasters and the 'rebel' clubs have become, any chance of maintaining their lofty positions from week to week is taken, longer rests between games, schedules that see the likes of Everton and others face the big teams in batches of five or six fixtures, every opportunity to maintain the status-quo is looked for and taken.

It's just a pity that this current Everton side doesn't have enough about it to have made a real fist of the fight for the Champions League because it would have been so sweet to have taken the place off one of the usual suspects in this of all seasons.

How long have the PL had to re-arrange Villa away. No doubt this will probably get played the midweek before Man City away.

What is the possible reason for not having already scheduled the Villa game? Isn’t everything else pre-determined now?

They've had plenty of free midweeks to fit it in since January but it's like they've forgot that it was postponed.

I guess it all depends on how much Everton are a threat to the Champions League cartel before the unarranged fixture is rearranged.

Do you think this would happen to Man Utd, Man City, Chelsea, or the unmentionables? Or those other massive powerhouses, Spurs and the Arsenal!!!!!????
