Continuing with our new method of Friday Feedback, Andrew, who wrote last week about the changes everyone would like to see in the QPR match, gives me this week's question:

What match (fixture) on the schedule (fixture list) are you most looking forward to and why?

Now, I admit, my knee-jerk reaction to this was Norwich - Aston Villa, the match we play on May 13, 2012. I'm sad to say I just can't feel optimistic about this season getting any better. Yeah, Villa will stay up, but will I be able to stay awake? That remains to be seen. But no, I've got another match I'm looking forward to...

That match, of all things, is Chelsea v Aston Villa. Yep. The Blues at the Bridge. Why, exactly? It's not as though I'm anticipating another last-minute Ciaran Clark goal. No, I'm looking forward to this one because I'm curious to see just how quickly a mixed household can dissolve a marriage based on a football match. 

We tried so hard to have a wedding that wouldn't conflict with any significant sporting events. But the Premier League just couldn't release its schedule before all those important wedding details needed attending to, and the football gods pulled some strings so they could have a good laugh at our expense. First morning as a married couple? Bwahahaha watch your teams do battle. See if you can cope with another 7-1 scoreline. This is what married life truly is about.

Now go on, tell me what you want to see. I'm sure it's not as odd as my fixture.
