Long Wait For Cup Replay

Long Wait For Cup Replay

The date for the FA Cup replay against Aston Villa has still not been agreed, but it's almost certainly going to be either Tuesday 14th or Wednesday 15th March at Eastlands.

Assuming we go through, and after Sunday's performance at Villa Park we ought to do, it will leave little time to prepare for the Quater Final against either West Ham or Bolton, which seems to be scheduled for Monday 20th March.

Am I the only one getting fed up with crazy kick-off dates and times just to suit the TV companies? What's wrong with football on Saturdays?

Deffo the 14th for the replay .... if ever television ruled this game proves it .... can't play on the 7th or 8th because of the champions league. (which City and Villa have a massive interest in of course) So replay 14th, assuming we go through the next round is on the 20th with a league game on the 18th thrown in for good measure. You couldn't make it up.
