Surely it is more of an opportunity for those who already have a lot of RPs to get even further ahead?

Is this really true? I can't see how or why this would be a Premiership ruling.

Probably not strictly true as Fulham played Watford at home in a friendly first game back at Craven Cottage.

Is most likely a timing thing. Prem clubs will often want to play their home friendly close to the start of the season, normally after the FL has started.

Not being a sth these days, I will definately go to this game as I don't suppose I will get a chance to see many matches this season. As for the nectar points... couldn't give a stuff, I'm well down the pecking order and will probably stay there. Best chance i have of going when I can is when the ground expands, won't need sainsbury points then!
