Fixture Changes

In yet another lack of foresight by the FA, Aston Villa and Manchester City supporter's have been left in the dark so that Villa Park is able to accomodate the FA Cup semi-final between West Ham and Charlton/Boro.
Instead of the Villa/City game being played on April 22nd with a 3pm kick off it will now be played the following Tuesday at 7.45pm.

Not that I have anything against Villa hosting the semi, but if it was a likely venue surely the weekend of the 22nd should have seen Villa scheduled to play an away fixture?

Instead we have yet another late fixture change and a struggle down the M6 during rush hour in order to make the game.

Also coming hot on the heels of that fixture change comes news that the Arsenal home game will have to be moved if Arsenal progress in the Champions League.

The fixture, originally scheduled for Monday 17th April will now be played on Thursday 4th May, again with a 7.45pm kick off, if Arsenal get past Juventus.

So instead of a nice bank holiday home game with have it stuffed at the end of the season on a Thursday night? Again a like of forward thinking by the fixture planners.

Football fans the heart and soul of the game? Someone forgot to tell the authorities.
