I would imagine the manager would make the decision in our set up.

And Cambridge don't get a say? The EFL? Police? Match officials? On what planet does Ian Evatt have the final say on when abandoned fixtures are replayed?? Moon man.

Mate seemed to think that Harris had said, before it was confirmed, that Feb 20th was too soon for them 

If so then if managers do get a say they don't get the final say

For us, i think its mad to suggest evatt doesnt have a big say in when we would like to play it

To those saying its too soon, have you weighed up what not playing this week and a postponement v shrewsbury means

I havent, but im not the one saying we have ballsed up

Of course we’d have liked to have put it back until a bit later to spread the games out a bit, but there just weren't the dates in the diary.

 

“It’s not just about us. Where we’ve got a couple of free Tuesdays in March and one that was set aside in April, just for example we talked to Bolton about the 9 and 10 of April as a possible date, but then realised we’ve got Blackpool the Saturday before. If they win their semi-final in the Bristol Street Motors (against Peterborough), we have to put that back to a midweek.

   

“It was just becoming a bit of a minefield. Bolton have got a lot of Tuesday games already, so (they have) very few opportunities to put another game.

 

“So ultimately, rather than toing and froing and all looking at what was best individually, we just went – what works best for everybody? The 20th, even though it comes around quickly for us, Bolton and also the fans, no-one really had a choice in the end so it was agreed quite quickly.”

So who decided? Sharon, Neil Hart, the kit man?

Ive answered above

My reply was to you saying the EFL cant decide

Its obvious they can and they do

Which is why the clubs try to sort it themselves and if you would just read the above and consider the fact both teams have busy schedules, its clear why its been done

The EFL step in if the clubs don’t agree. The playing side get a say, but they’re about 10th on the list. As it is, the article above pretty much outlines exactly why it was done so soon. And surely better to have it out of the way now than a big pile up at business end.

It’s being played this Tuesday whoever made the decision; going to be tough with our spine all unavailable. But the hardcore will be backing them; will you be in the pub with us Tuesday?

Grab a couple of calendars, one for Cambridge and one for Bolton. Go through them and see when empty Tuesdays are mutual. There won’t have been that many. 

Had a look at the time 

1 in Feb, 2 in march, 1 in April  

But as in the article, Cambridge had to take into account other games that may have to be shifted 

So ultimately looks like both us and them decided to just get it the way asap, considering this is the 3rd date it is due to be played
