I don't understand why they have cancelled this fixture all together. Why not just play the reverse fixture at Goodison. Later in the season there will be less fixture congestion. No?
That would be a solid, sensible idea which would not make a mockery of the tables halfway through the season. Everybody could be at roughly even numbers of games, instead of Pompey and Arsenal being five whole games ahead of Greater London United, and four ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool.
Therefore, it could never happen. A messed-up mid-season table is one of the most important agenda points of FA's planning.
