    Stupid, stupid, stupid......is what I think of these international breaks, the EFL and Sky this early in the season.

    Our last home game was vs Preston Tues Aug 15th then we played Bolton, Grimsby and Sheff United all away. Then came the first international break of the the season which leads us to the home game against Hull which was originally scheduled for Saturday 9th of September but along came Sky and moved it to Friday 8th September, a date I have family commitments that cannot be changed, so I cannot attend.

    The next scheduled game was due to be Ipswich on Tues 12th September but has now been replaced by the crappily named Carabao Cup which is away to Barnsley.

    Sat 16th sees us away to Bristol City then if we have beaten Barnsley in that crappy cup we are away to Spurs on Tuesday 10th September which brings us to Sat 24th September Hurray! Birmingham at home!

    But let's not rest on our laurels for the Tues & Sat that see out the month of September produce away matches (Brentford & Cardiff respectively).

    That might have been it but no, the next international break starts and it's not until Sunday 15th October (even that's been moved from it's original scheduling) do we play again (against them down the road) but it is at least at home!

    In summary I can only attend ONE game at Pride Park because of international breaks or fixture changes from August 15th to October 15th TWO bloody months!

    Stupid, stupid stupid.
