From next season fa cup replays are to be scrapped & early rounds played midweek 

2024-25 for clarity.  Thankfully just a proposal for now but inevitable before long.  And the FA Cup final to be squeezed into a normal Prem weekend, like the League Cup is now.

England v Spain  u21 final tomorrow now on Channel 4.

I should think so to.   Apparently no British broadcaster bid for the rights to show any games,   and yet I bet this upcoming wimmins tournament will be all over our screens

Actually think they've only just come to an agreement for the broadcasting of England games in the UK for that. Been a lot of arguments across the board about broadcasting rights

Great news. 

They've been available on Uefa and iptv services. 

I'll be watching. Hopefully they won't have the channel 4 presenters on! 🤣

Barnsley have had to postpone their midweek game at Guisely on Tuesday because they can’t put a team out!! Seems strange and would suggest their new manager has a lot of work to do?

I reckon the new boss didn't fancy it and thought the time would be better spent on the training pitch. There's no way a League 1 team hasn't got 18 first / B / U-21 / Academy players to play against a pub team.

They have also cancelled a friendly against Blackburn.

I’m not sure Collins is even here yet as I think he’s committed to staying for Tampas last game today so it’s probably understandable if that’s the case.

Great read.

One of them things you look back and think how in Christ's name did that idea even make it out of the 4am kitchen session it was clearly dreamed up in??

Glad this got a mention 

The ding-dong 3-3 draw between Bolton and Brescia at Burnden Park in 1993 should have whet the appetite for more nights of continental grandeur. If not for the Gheorghe Hagi goal at the fabled supermarket end, then for Pierluigi Collina officiating the game.

Cant find the goal but found this
