Just wondering.  Can't be because they have important Euro fixtures,
because they don't.

That wasn't known when the rescheduling had to be done.

Newcastle have finished playing their group games. Chelsea's doesn't
matter much.

Damn you, Hynes Michael. I was all set to post about this under the
benrobertsmithis subject line "Chelsea FC P-P Newcastle United".

Anyway, Newcastle played Thursday so they couldn't play Saturday, and
Chelsea is playing Tuesday, so they couldn't play Sunday. While these
exact fixtures weren't know before the season, the FA should have known
that there was a 50% chance Chelsea would be playing Tuesday and an 80%
that Newcastle, if they made it to the group stage, would be playing
Thursday, and have scheduled them to play teams not qualified for Europe.
