    Fuckin hell, the final? It's the 5th round! Most all the Prem teams got a pretty nice draw and it's looking like the quarter finals will be an all prem affair, never mind the semis and the final. One game at a time. Was hoping for Cov at home but we got a good draw.

    VERy nice draw but shouldn’t get complacent just because we’re at home.

    The Tigers are playing at home on the Saturday, so I expect the game will be played on the Sunday.

    Getting to the final doesn't mean we win it, Jonah

    Sheffield play on the following Tuesday and Friday so not sure the Sunday will be suitable for them

    Sheff U are playing on the following Tuesday, so it looks like Sunday is unlikely. So maybe it will be on Friday night.

    Which is the same night Leicester Riders play Newcastle Eagles in a 1st v 2nd league game which could have a major say in who takes the title.
    Would be a gutter for Riders as no doubt they’d be hoping for a big crowd which would be massively impacted should City being playing that night as well!
    Unless of course Riders then switch the date of that game as a consequence...

    Woah, the Riders must be drawing some incredible crowds these days if there can be perfectly reasonable grounds for concern that the traffic that produces combined with that of the City crowd's could have disasterous consequences for ambulances trying to get to the hospital

    No one has suggested that will happen.

    I would suspect that a fair percentage of Riders fans also attend the City games (me included) hence the possible impact on the Riders attendance.

    Teams play with one day off over Christmas and New year so why do they become incapable afterwards?

    Fair point. We should push for the Sunday. Think Sheffield may be concentrating on the league not our cup game

    So could be on the telly, which means you can record it and watch it when you get back from the Riders game :)

    Won't be the Friday as that would be the only day I could possibly make it to the game.

    I believe there's an indoor bowls match Friday evening. Not televised but there is some local interest.
