    I don't want to sound arrogant, but barring some sort of complete melt down, I expect City to beat Burton over two legs and progress to the final.

    Seeing as Spurs are in the driving seat in the other semi. If they were to prevail and progress to the final also, should the final be played at Wembley? which basically is their home and has been for 2 seasons. Should the game be switched to a "neutral" ground for example Twickenham? (holds approx 80,000). Emirates would be unfair on them as much as playing the game at the swamp would be for us

    What are your thoughts?

    It's barm so STFU.
    I imagine the Final is contracted to be held at Wembley so Wembley it will be as the EFL won't want to be shelling out compo if it's moved.

    Same issue came up last year with Spurs in the FA Cup semi-final. The story was then that no clubs had objected to it.

    Don’t take this the wrong way, but this is a pretty pointless thread. The FA wouldn’t contemplate moving the final away from Wembley.

    It'll be in Wembley with spurs using the 'away' facilities.

    We have a fantastic record at Wembley these days so who cares. I would prefer Chelsea to Spurs though.

    Only if Spurs get to the final and only if they then lose the toss of the coin for the home dressing room.

    I agree with you that it will be played there, I was canvasing opinion of "Should" it be? In the context of fairness. But we all know what happens that fairness goes out of the window when it comes to Spurs and also Wembley needing money.

    I don't see what's unfair about it when both clubs have equal access to tickets if we get the home facilities.
