    "The organisations are working closely to reach an "acceptable solution".

    They'll be working on one that delivers MCFC the biggest fuck up!

    If it's not Wednesday that'll be a personal bonus as I'm flying back from Cyprus that evening.

    Why should the Newcastle game have anything to do with it?
    Why should the Newcastle game have anything to do with it, that is on the 29th?

    if either club were asked to play on 24 January, their potential involvement in the FA Cup fourth round on 26 or 27 January would have to be considered.

    On 29 January, Newcastle play City in a televised league game which cannot be rescheduled.

    I think it's simply that each semifinal has a team playing on the Sunday in 3 weeks, which makes the Tuesday afterwards problematic. Therefore it's likely that one semifinal will go to Wednesday and one to Thursday.

    Either date rules out FA Cup on the Friday afterwards, and one rules out the Saturday too. Chelsea and City are playing on the Tuesday afterwards (as it stands), meaning that they would have to play in the FA Cup on the Saturday.

    The Newcastle match is on BT, who also have the rights to half the FA Cup. They won't want to mess that around, and they also have a match on the Wednesday.

    That or Sky have to play ball and co-operate to help BT by moving the matches beforehand. The cynics can add in "and City" if they like!

    So are you saying it looks like 2 games in 3 days at some point regardless, assuming we beat Rotherham?
