You mean in the last decade or 2 Liverpool doesn't even know how the EPL trophy looks like.
And Blackburn have won it more than them
Time for more of it
Such a weird kick off time 😂
Just another United game dictated by non British market influence...
Wrong. BBC have had games kick off at 7.55pm for years since they bought the rights. It’s so they have time for analysis before the 10 o clock news.
...the other markets have existed long before the BBC picked up the rights, not that I'm convinced they have final say on what time football games start and finish. Besides they have multiple channels, absolutely no need to cram programming in before or after anything else
There were hardly Friday games in the previous TV contract with ITV and Setanta... The new overseas deal was the reason for the staggered kick offs in round 3, but the BBC has had Friday kick offs since 2014. United were away at Derby on a Friday night in 2015 on the BBC.
Gunner vs Gunnar!! Interesting.
Shit kick off time for travelling fans
It doesn’t make any sense for any reason. cant watch it US and can’t travel to it from Manchester
Apart from possibly Monday evening it's the worse travelling time
BRING ON ARSENAL!!!
Is there a tiny bit of respect left for the fans that travel to the games? Absolute joke
We’re playing on the following Tuesday so unfortunately options were limited
I agree with scheduling to help our teams fixture congestions, but this is 100% TV companies putting us there, they have no regard for a clubs fixture congestion and especially no regards for the fans that go to matches. Options could have easily been saturday lunch/afternoon.
Jlingz will do the dirty job for us
Come on United tell how much say you had in this decision, will you be providing free trains home for the travelling support as last train home is well before match ends
actually the last train home from Euston (2 stops and 4 mins from H&I station) leaves at 11pm. The last train back to London leaves Piccadilly Manchester at 9:15pm so if it was at OT there aren’t any trains back unless you leave at half time.
