    Agree. But that's not really the point mate. Bunch of media cunts.

    Problem is that they know it and are left with zero reason not to do this. Needs to be regulated really. Should be a maximum distance apart for two teams if you want to move them from a weekend into a midweek slot.

    No trains back after the game that late, especially if it's southport!

    Not Tranmere either. I even looked at Liverpool (and Chester!) in case you could get a bus back there and catch a train, but no luck.

    The FA haven't thought about this at all.

    Woking vs Watford should have been the Friday night games as they are both in and around London area. Our game should have been on the Sunday.

    The FA Cup has now become all about viewing figures. It was always a Saturday competition, but now they are all stretched across the weekend to bring in the most foreign and national viewing figures.

    Google suggests from Tranmere you could simply get Bus 487 to Birkenhead, then the 421 to Birmingham and the 422 from there to get to London at 5.50 the next morning. Couldn't be easier, don't know what everyone's moaning about to be honest.

    Very happy with that. Much bigger allocation. Getting home afterwards is going to be fun.

    So, so fucked off with this. Really fancied it, but I can't take the day off on the Friday so close to Christmas. I suppose at least it gives some lower points ST holders the chance to go to an interesting away game. No way back other than wally coach, driving, or staying over.

    Hi guys, Tranmere fan here (son is Tranmere/Spurs fan especially Harry Kane). Just to let you know we dont have a clubhouse as such but rather a “fanzone” -basically a tent in the car park. Serves a whole range of interesting beers rather than the usual rubbish. I can recommend the gamma ray beer- around 6% and £3.50 a pint. Away fans are always welcome, we even let Wrexham in - there is usually a massive police presence for them so cant see why you wont be allowed. Also has post match live music for those that are staying. Not tried food in there but usually has stuff like curry and rice etc for £3. Give me a shout if any questions. Looking forward to it.

    I really want to go to this but just cant get back to Nottingham/derby area after the game! Anybody fancy driving in exchange for a match ticket?
