    For someone, yes. Not necessarily us.
    City could go Sun-Wed-Sat-Tues.

    I assume they're hoping someone comes a cropper in the 3rd round.

    Do we think this will remain on 22/01 now as we're unlikely to be in tv against Burnley?

    Could be a TV game though there's a few more obvious ones. Saturday would make most sense given our midweek games, but when did that ever get taken into account?

    It's barm so STFU.
    I can't see it being on the 22nd as we play Huddersfield on the 20th.

    We're Wednesday 23rd, Chelsea v Spurs is the Thursday. Confirmed.

    They're gonna test VAR at Burton in a league game before we play there and if it works it will be in effect for that leg. Not sure what happens if the test doesn't go well, but its never been used in a third tier game before.

    Is the barcodes game on the Amazon TV rights contract?

    Self edit: it's on BT.

    So 2 of our matches this season dictated by TV demanding we play on those days through no fault of our own.

    Have any other clubs been forced to do the same?

    I'm guessing nope.

    Spurs and Chelsea is much the same situation.

    Not sure what the problem is with playing on the Wednesday. Seems as good as it could be, as we're playing on the Sunday beforehand, and have to play on the Saturday in the FA Cup to fit with the Tuesday match after that.

    Standard TV scheduling problems.
