Not a huge fan of them diluting the final so that it’s played on a weekend alongside league matches.

It's a standalone thing. Should be left as it is. Finally got it back to 3pm and then they propose/rubber stamp this - It devalues the prestige further just when it was getting respectable again

I wasn’t aware that we were top scorers (until recently)

About 10/11 London teams at home, so who knows what KO time we’ll end up with 😲

Oh good! Another fucking wierd kick-off day/time. Was hoping to make this my one match of the season as I did with the Portsmouth game last year but fuck trying to get home to deepest Norfolk at that time on a Friday.

The Met has asked for all London ties to be shoved all across the weekend as 10 of 32 matches were to be played in London including all seven PL sides being at home so police logistics wouls have been an absolute nightmare if all non-TV picks were Saturday 3pm. But I fully sympathise with how much that sucks.

Having said that we are actually an ITV TV pick. Sod knows why, any all-PL tie that isn't Arse-Pool would be bottom of my list of picks.

Well I'd have appreciated a call from the Met to see what day I could make it first :cautious:

But seriously, we do seem to have been shoved into some strange schedules this season. Some weeks Mon/Fri, then nothing for a week and a half!

This is where not being in Europe is actually a disadvantage. The schedulers can fuck around with us as they please as they don't have to schedule us around European games.
