Gone down in folklore this one. So many think we were made to play sunday tuesday, so easy mistake to make. In actual fact we tried to make a point at the wrong time and blew the fa cup at a time when every cup counted.Chelsea was Sunday evening and the game after was Wed in Kiev. 21/2 and 24/2
On these fixture changes it unreal how City can get it so wrong! Its almost like a 5pm friday job. Send it out, watch it hit sent box and shut down for the weekend - we can always sort it on monday morning.
So professional from the top until it hits anything that effects us fans.
Re the United game, If we play CL the following Tuesday theyll be so kind to move us to the early sunday kick off, if wednesday they get the prime later slot. Thats worth us kicking off not a sun-wed arrangement. Guaranteed to be away in CL.
Edit - looks like they got there in the end!
