Fixture pile up

There are five slots for each team's four UEFA Cup group games to be played in, so every team gets one day off.

Presuming that City play in both of the first two match days (a 60% shot), we will have seven games within a 21 day period immediately following the international break.

20/10 Newcastle (a), 23/10 UEFA Cup, 26/10 Stoke (h), 29/10 'Boro (a), 2/11 Bolton (a), 6/11 UEFA Cup, 9/11 Spurs (h).

Given that our Samba stars have Venezuela away on 12/10, then Colombia at home on 15/10, we could conceivably face some fatigue issues across this period.
