Wonderful… if we manage to get past Benfica then we’ll be playing on the Tuesday after the FA cup semi final.
And what do you think the FA did with the kick off time…? They made it 6pm. Yep, 6pm on the Sunday, and we’d be playing on the Tuesday after that.
We can’t have our semi final on the Saturday because the scousers have to play then as the Sunday is the anniverasry of Hillsboro’. I would have thought the Sunday would’ve been the best day for them to play, so they can show some respect to all those innocent fans who were killed by the mindless idiots who were late and pushed in to that central area behind the goal despite it being full. But let’s not get into that. But I still think the scousers should play on the Sunday, on the anniversary.
I wonder what old red-nose would be saying if it was the mancs playing on the Sunday with a possible ECL semi on the Tuesday?
The FA don’t give a fkk about the fixtures, with the exception of the scousers, who can’t be upset. Always the victims, never the cause.
We may not get past Benfica, anyway, so it could be irrelevant. But that isn’t the point. The FA are wankers.
