Long term being on BBC free to air is far better coverage for the team. Kids can watch the match whereas BT match will go on without the big who ha that BBC will publicise big time.
We are probably the only club that thrives on playing a quick turnaround with the squad we have, how often have we thought our bench would beat the team picked.
Time to leave it to Pep,
Finding the silver lining there... fair play, cos I wouldn’t have spotted it.
Yes but in the past BBC has mostly picked Sunday ... and BT Sport gets the second choice which is Saturday ... so questions remains, why BBC would put us on Saturday instead of Sunday? Not like that was their fixed slot or something ... or like they wanted the bigger teams who could only play Saturday (say one of them had a Tue game afterwards) which is not the case here ... in fact the opposite ... by all accounts it made more (yes even commercial) sense to put our game on Sunday on BBC ... but they have deliberately chosen to put us on Saturday instead ...
Four semi finalists ... only one team is inconvenienced ... rest all had no effect on them whatsoever with the scheduling either way ... Leicester and Saints have both full week off, Chelsea are at home on Tuesday ... only we are on Wednesday before and AWAY as well all they way to Hungry possibly ... so my question remains, why?!?
Pick up all BBC games done in the past rounds this season and previous years, they always pick United or Liverpool ahead of anyone else and always put Sunday or Saturday based on what's best for them two teams ... and mostly are on Sunday ... in fact just look at their last round, they had two quarter finals and BT had two, norm would dictate one each on Sat and one on Sun but no, BBC had both on Sunday instead so ... yes I would question the motive here!
Edit: Check last year's semi finals too ... BT on Sat, BBC on Sun ...
