    Hi everyone. I'm from Italy and one month ago I bought 3 tickets for the match, then it was postponed to a later date. Unluckily I had bought flight tickets before: I guess there won't be problems to change flight date but I need to know when the match will be scheduled. When can I have any news about it?

    Thanks a lot

    Thanks
    Do you mean we have to wait one week to know anything about the date?

    We might be waiting for the 6th round results. Brighton are due to play Spurs on semi finals day and we play Swansea. So depending on the 6th round results us and Brighton might have a free weekend then that we could use and save the midweek slot for the rearranged Swansea game.

    Nothings been confirmed yet but the midweek of 17/18 April is free for all and that’s when SIX of the pending fixtures that have been postponed from the FA Cup QF weekend should be played ... out of those two days (Tue/Wed) 17th is most likely the date for our fixture as Brighton have a game Sat before and Fri after so Wednesday is probably a no go for that ... but nothing’s been confirmed yet.

    I suspect the delay in announcing has got to do with Sky having picked our this game for TV when March picks were announced they want to make sure they have Tue and Wed both night’s games on the box and now have cornered themselves putting us on Sat late night against Spurs and then Brighton the Fri night game the following week in their April picks and are now not able to figure out what to do with possibly both their TV picks falling on Tue while Wed going empty ... if they were given a free hand they’d probably out Monday night game that week and then tue wed and thu games so one game on tv all week and go again with Friday night for next gameweek ... in my opinion some seriously inept people working there ... who can’t figure their own schedule out first and then can’t negotiate those with clubs involved. City would actually be happier with a Wed fixture that mid week but doubt Brighton would agree to play Wed and Fri ... anyway, let’s see when they pull their finger out and get on with announcing it ...

    As Spurs play Swansea in FA Cup 1/4 Final it’s impossible for us to play Brighton weekend of Semi Finals as we’ll be playing Swansea or Brighton will be playing Spurs.

    Might as well do that for all the impact the game will have on this year's table.

    You sure, mate?

    Bought a ticket for my little lad at start of the season for the Huddersfield game thinking we would lift the trophy on that day, was worried the Brighton game might get it instead?
