Nearly every other club in Europe outside of England gets looked after by their country’s FA before Champions League ties – especially knockout games.
Their domestic fixtures are often actually moved to the Friday – giving the team involved as much time as possible to prepare for the CL clash…
Liverpool are playing Real Madrid – away from home – might we add – which obviously requires a flight and time to get there – on the Tuesday, April 6…
We’d been due to play Arsenal on Sunday lunchtime, but rules state because of the draw seeing us play on Tuesday and not Wednesday, our fixture would be moved to Saturday…
However, instead of providing Liverpool more time to recover for Real Madrid, Sky Sports have scheduled the fixture for 8pm on the Saturday – when plenty of earlier slots were available.
It’s at the Emirates, remember, so Liverpool will have to travel back to Merseyside, then pretty much immediately fly to wherever the Champions League game is being held – given it’s not guaranteed to be the Bernabeu at this stage.
It will have really irritated Jurgen Klopp, that much we can guarantee, especially as we’re not in a position to rest any players v Arsenal, given our need to fight for top four.
I reckon its a conspiracy against our team , I heard that Bobby Charlton ex Manu legend is on the FA executive board.I don’t know if this is the truth, if its the truth , then I’m convinced that the FA , will by all means to prevent our world’s best club LFC win number 7th CL as it goes agains the norm of the executive board and especially if we have an Foreign Manager to win it for LFC.we could have played Arsenals at later date .
Unfortunately football sold itself to TV so Sky and co do what is in their best interests. As a match going supporter I have long been used to being completely ignored, but still required to turn up to provide the atmosphere they go on about. Daft kick off times, VAR, offside law, handball all make it difficult to enjoy the game I pay to attend but has my opinion ever been sought? No.
The FA is very bad, nothing new ! BUT
We’ve put ourselves in this position by losing to the likes of Fulham!
WE SHOULD KICK OURSELVES
What a BS!
