    Whenever then Brighton game gets slotted, trophy presentation would be at Huddersfield!

    Plus more chances of a rescheduled Swansea being slotted in the last midweek if any game is to be slotted there, Brighton would have two slots before that where it can go in (one is that 17/18 April mid week, and second would be when Swansea on weekend should Brighton lose their FA Cup QF but Swansea wins thiers) ...

    Did the same and thought the same about the Brighton or maybe even Swansea games being slotted in after Huddersfield. My only thoughts were though would they want to be presenting the trophy at 10.00 night? So would expect / hope they would still do it at the Huddersfield game.

    There are very few tickets left for this if anyone interested in going.

    Why what's tomorrow?


    Here's the remaining calendar for those still confused:

    16 Mar - Fri - 11:00am - CL QF Draw - LIVE on BT Sport and Eurosport - The derby date would be confirmed an hour or so after this draw when the CL ties are announced.
    31 Mar - Sat - 5:30pm - Everton v City - LIVE on BT Sport
    3/4 Apr - Tue/Wed - 7:45pm - CL QF 1st Leg - LIVE on BT Sport
    7 Apr - Sat - 5:30pm - City v United - LIVE on Sky Sports (This is a BT Sport slot but they don't have this gameweek, Sky picked this weekend as their top pick early on)
    10/11 Apr - Tue/Wed - 7:45pm - CL QF 2nd Leg - LIVE on BT Sport
    13 Apr - Fri - 11:00am - CL SF Draw - LIVE on BT Sport and Eurosport
    14 Apr - Sat - 7:45pm - Spurs v City - LIVE on Sky Sports (Sky has used one of their FNF or MNF slot for Sat night instead citing CL midweek)
    17/18 April - Tue/Wed - 8:00pm - FREE DATE - Strong possibility for Brighton
    22 April - Sun - 4:30pm - City v Swansea - LIVE on Sky Sports (Subject to change depending on if Swansea can beat Spurs this weekend in FA Cup QF and proceed to SF stage)
    24/25 April - Tue/Wed - 7:45pm - CL SF 1st Leg - LIVE on BT Sport
    29 April - Sun - 2:25pm - West Ham v City - LIVE on Sky Sports (Subject to change depending on if City in CL SF and which days they play the two legs, both around this fixture)
    1/2 May - Tue/Wed - 7:45pm - CL SF 2nd Leg - LIVE on BT Sport
    5 May - Sat - 3:00pm - City v Huddersfield - PL Trophy Presentation Day - Bound to change for TV, so most likely pick for Sky Sports for Sunday 6 May
    8/9 May - Tue/Wed - 8:00pm - FREE DATE - Alternative for Brighton, but more likely for Swansea game should they proceed to FA Cup Semi Finals.

    13 May - Sun - 3:00pm - Southampton v City - Date/Time won't change even for TV picks, but ours is probably not going to be on TV as all done and dusted by then.
    19 May - Sat - 5:30pm - FA Cup Final - LIVE on BT Sport and BBC One
    26 May - Sat - 7:45pm - CL Final - LIVE on BT Sport

    We played Villa think it was the Wednesday before the final game of 2014
    Could it be that late again for the Brighton game?
    Or Bank Holiday Monday, 7th May if they want to present trophy at an earlier time of day.

    I meant tomorrow we could know something about the new date like someone said previously (but maybe I misunderstood). So it is likely to be scheduled for 17/18 April or 8/9 May. Do you have any idea about when the one or the other date will be confirmed?

    Thanks for the resume

    City are flogging hospitality for the Huddersfield game as trophy presentation day (should we win it before then) and it will be on Saturday or Sunday. Most likely Saturday as there are 2 other games more likely to be televised (Chelsea v Liverpool, Stoke v Palace). Also Monday is down as play off fixture dare. Also if the Swansea game has to be rescheduld due to them being in the FA cup semi-final then we would have a midweek game against them on Tue/Wed. My bet would be a Saturday 12:30 KO on Sky (unlikely to be a BT game if the presentatiom is involved).
