Interesting quotes from footballs top cúnt Shaun Harvey... Knowing these fixtures are intentional is an even bigger kick in the teeth.
Harvey is also claiming his words have been taken out of context by some media outlets. Yet I have checked the transcript and it is quite clear. “We make a conscious scheduling decision to try to keep matches such as local derbies – or those teams you can travel to in an hour or hour and a half – at weekends because more people are able to get to them,” Harvey said. “So, rather than having a local derby on a Tuesday night, where people are generally working and the crowds will be much lower, we work on a basis of trying to get maximum crowds, which can be achieved only at weekends. The flipside of that, of course, is those games at a distance have to go into midweek.”
