Is this a fixture record?
I haven't been local to Wycombe for many years, so I pick and choose my home games to attend (even though my Vipienne residence has been of great solace in being able to watch games I don't go to in person).
So with that in mind, I was browsing the fixture list, and saw...
we have Posh (H) in the league on the 15th Oct, followed by, on the 18th Oct...
Posh (H), in the Pizza cup.
Now I would expect the Saturday fixture to do great business, given Posh's position in the league, the fact that they should bring decent numbers away, plus the added spice lent by their unusually sour grapes towards our promotion.
But playing the same team a few days later, in a competition that already struggles to capture even a nanosecond of the average fan's attention, and some also boycott because of the introduction of the U23 teams...I think we are seriously in danger of setting a whole new low attendance record.
To go back to the title of the post though, not including things like cup replays or playoff games, where of course you'd expect to play the same team twice within a short space of time, have we ever played the same team twice within less than a week?
