This isn’t true. There is no issues with our game on the Sunday late afternoon.
It will be on the Sunday, Man Utd can't play on the Saturday as they've got a game the Thursday before in the Europa League and it won't be on the Monday as we've got a midweek game away to Forest on Wednesday 26th. (plus Monday evening would heavily reduce ticket sales)Is there still no news!? My hunch is now Saturday or Monday, all a bit bizarre. UTA.
It will be on Monday night at Old Trafford. Mind you, if that happened there would be uproar, mainly from the United supporters having to get up there from Guildford on a school night.No chance it will be on the Saturday with Utd. playing in Spain on the Thursday evening.
There has been overlaps between PL games and the semi finals in previous seasons. Last season City and Liverpool kicked off at 3:30pm which would have clashed with 3 of the PL games being played that day (our game against Spurs was the early KO)Fulham v Leeds is the early kick off on the Saturday in the PL, so the Man City Sheff Utd game unlikely to kick off until 5.30 I would think as can't clash with the 3pm games. Sunday there are 2pm PL games so our game won't be before 4.30pm, hopefully not too much later than that as it's a Sunday. But let's see....Official announcement is imminent today apparently
You say this, and I do think you're probably right, but the website says "Date TBD".It will be on the Sunday, Man Utd can't play on the Saturday as they've got a game the Thursday before in the Europa League and it won't be on the Monday as we've got a midweek game away to Forest on Wednesday 26th. (plus Monday evening would heavily reduce ticket sales)
There's a Fleetwood Mac joke in there somewhereThis is how rumours start - I was talking to another BHA fan earlier today at work and he said he heard it was about the kick-off time on the Sunday. He was talking about a later start wanted by one club and the other club saying an earlier start. Who wants what I don't know. Rumours rumours. We will know soon enough.
