This is generally the time of year that many managers start complaining about a fixture pile up, but if you’re out of the FA Cup, your team will be spending most of the next three weeks twiddling their thumbs.
For the rest of this month we have one more game. West Ham at home next week will be our last fixture of any kind until April 2nd when we travel to Wigan and for most clubs, it’s a similar story.
In April it starts to pile up for Spurs, with two Champions League ties, plus the first leg of the semi if we get that far, along with six league games.
Clearly April will go a long way to deciding our season, but will it prove better to have a gap as we have in March which will give us time to get certain players fit, or would it be more beneficial if the games were better spaced out?
