Stupidity of the FA, two merseyside teams have to travel to London and get to Kick Off at 12.30pm, the day before two London clubs play with a 6pm Kick Off.

Those travelling on the day will be leaving about 4am-6am, those who stay over will mean 4 teams have fans in and around the area all at once and that's a recipe for disaster.

You actually make it sound like they would ever consider the fans... no chance ... totally agree ...

The reason the Everton v Liverpool game is on the Saturday is because it's the anniversary of Hillsborough on the Sunday & Liverpool didn't want to play it then.

Hi Toffeenose, you can blame the TV companies for that. Chelsea aren't very happy either as they could have a potential Champion's League semi-final against Barelona on the Tuesday, they've tried to get their FA Cup game changed to the Friday night.

Yes not moning about the day, completely and utterly understand the 15th and Hillsborough. What is really annoying is the early Kick Off.

General feeling from what I heard was that most thought it would be a 5.00-5.30ish time, it really could cause havoc with so many travelling down so early and there is a chance that they may have to delay Kick Off if there are fans waiting outside.

Complete and utter stupidity by people who dont have a clue apart from how to make as much money as possible regardless of common sense.
