    Getting creative with the matchday diary
    New season's fixtures out today. And immediately, as every year, the reaction is to get the diary out and get creative with the dates ... Will someone else do that wedding for me? Can I shift that retreat to a Friday? Does that meeting really have to be on that evening?

    Some would say this is a strange way for a man of the cloth to be thinking, not me though. Well, nothing would be worse for a couple getting married than a vicar in a sulk through missing the Arsenal game; no retreatants would value someone meant to be leading them into stillness and reflection wearing a radio walkman while he's addressing them; half the rest of the people involved would probably like that meeting shifted too... surely?
