Doesn’t that mean that game A will be 3rd v 6th, in which case will be the tea time kick off ?

That's what it meant last year. It's not mentioned at all yet, which makes me think the police might have a say in the matter.

I'd say if it's Villa v Albion and we're at home 1st leg which looks likely at the moment, the police will insist we're the 12:45 kick off and not the 5:30 after the FA Cup game in 2015.

I bet they don't.

The police won't give a toss about Villa v Albion. If they were that arsed we wouldn't have played a Friday night game earlier this season.

Why did they have the over the top policing, the same blockades etc in place as when we play Blues and Albion only had 2000 tickets if the police aren't bothered?

Why the assumption that it's always WMP/drinking that dictates? What if Avon & Somerset don't want thousands of pissed up Leeds in Bristol all day?

Personally, I am not entertaining any play-off prospects until the end of the season, and we know where we are for definite!

It’s just absolutely astounding that we are able to have this thread considering where we were 8 games ago.

Not getting ahead of myself, but have they announced the dates and kick off times for the 2020 FA Cup Final and the 2021 Champions League Final yet?

They're waiting for Wolves to confirm.

They'll be able to field two seperate sides by then, with their clout.

When's the world cup final in 2026? I reckon we're going to be the first club side to win it.

Don't West Ham already have that claim to fame in 1966?

They do but they're lying. Also, I shouldn't have been so pessimistic. When's the 2022 world cup final?

Also when is the grand national next year? John McGinn is running it so hope it doesn’t clash with a game.

Yes.  I think that’s what we should be focusing on.  No point getting promoted unless we aim high. Non of this finishing top 6 shit.

But just think if we do go up with the “potential” money from our new billionaire owners , keeping JM and Jack.  We can but dream.

What's that got to do with the price of Marillion? You've said the police will intervene to move the kick off, despite the fact that they have never bothered in previous meetings. We enjoy similar blockades when we play Millwall but, again, the police don't move the kick off. Taking measures to prevent disorder and moving kick offs are different things, the latter only happens when we play Small Heath.

I share the unease at getting over confident but I am mightily relieved. I was worried about playing on 12th May when the  south of the city and wider area will be on lock down for Velo.
