Good point about the KO time. I felt rushed, despite being down there from around 4 onwards.

It's funny how we get used to these changes.  A night time kick off at anything other than 7.30 was unheard of when I started going to watch games.  Tonight seemed strange and also (very slightly) inconvenient.

What was the thinking regarding the change to 7.30 kick off times back then?  I'd have thought that earlier finishes would make it easier to get home after mid-week fixtures if anything.

Getting people in on time. Post-Hillsborough there was mass panic about queues at kick-off time.
