    OK I accept that there are some (like your goodself) who perhaps for whatever reason cannot get to games. Unfortunately in my experience with the advent of wall to wall football has come the multitudes of armchair fans who have jumped on the bandwagon. My local up here is full of them, as are numerous pubs up and down the land. That was my point, and that we match goers don't get treated with reasonable consideration.
    I apologise for any offence caused to you personally but it doesn't alter my view that we now being messed about to a ridiculous level. This derby rearrangement underlines it.

    I get your point in general but why is London on a Sunday difficult ? I don't get that bit. It's only 2 hrs on a train and 4 hrs driving tops.

    Whilst it may not be the club's decision, why did they let statutory agencies know about it last week and then deny any knowledge on the supporter services twitter?

    The Boro game had been as confirmed as you get, not on telly so not moving is reasonable to expect, but they can't be honest about that either.

    They would not refund Stoke tickets outside the return window, when it is normally 7 days before the game so impossible 6 days 22 hrs before when it is confirmed. There may have been new window but they keep it quiet like with BM refunds with match at a days notice, keep any mention of refunds silent but impose a 3 day window no one knows about.

    "Supporter Services‏ @ManCityHelp 7h7 hours ago
    @paulomcfc The game was never confirmed, we advise not to book travel until it has been selected by television"

    So if a game hasn't been selected by television you should not book travel? How stupid does that sound? Especially when it still hasn't been selected according @mancitynohelp.

    I didn't say it was difficult, just that Saturday would have been better for those who may now need to take Monday off (if they can). It doesn't bother me personally (I'm retired) but all round the Saturday would have made more sense all round IMHO.

    Yeah I was there for both games in 81. Wouldn't mind beating the Spuds in the final this year. Cheers
