    as the title says, can it?

    I'm sure I read that it can when the games dates for Aril were announced, if so what needs to happened for it to be changed?

    thanks

    Good question. I didn’t understand the point of the majority of the April TV fixtures announcement. It all seemed to be too much of:
    *dependant on.......etc for most of the games.

    My understanding was the CL 1/4 Final fixtures may affect the weekend games that take place in between the first and second legs. Still don’t know why City would be an issue though? If we play Tuesday/Wednesday or Wednesday/Tuesday the ideal time to play the weekend game is on Saturday. That’s what we’ve got. Hopefully somebody can explain it to us both??

    Don't think the day can change due to champions league but the time can change from 5.30 to 12.30

    If Liverpool are drawn to play in the Champs League on the Tuesday, with us and the rags drawn on the Wednesday, then I think the Manchester and dipper derby will be swapped over.

    Its Guinness time any day of the week.
    A disaster waiting to happen.Fuel filled ale pissers in town on the lash for approx 6-7 hours,a recipe for disaster.

    I really am surprised that GMP havn`t stepped in and told Sky to fuck off big style.

    it says on City's website, depends on Champions League involvement?

    If our first leg is on Wednesday night the game will be changed to 12.30 kick off due to us playing the following Tuesday. If its the other way round it stays the same. Im pretty sure whatever our games are in the champions league the derby will stay on a Saturday
