    More than likely as they like to faff with our fixtures when they can.

    My mate from Guildford is giving it a miss and watching it on telly because of the early start. Can't blame him really. I think a few others will probably do the same.

    Makes me laugh these early kick-offs. They do it to prevent trouble because people like a drink before matches. However, they don't take into account the licensing laws and people who are that way out just start supping earlier.

    I am not going either due to early kick off (I could make it if I had an early start) plus the fact that it is my grand daughters' birthday party. Well done Sky ........for once.

    This has been moved for Sky... nothing to do with perceived crowd trouble.

    Can anyone advise. ? Is there some kind of presentation involving our past players on Saturday.?
    Just had a call from my lad. Wants to pick me up at half ten as he says we need to be at the ground
    early. In thirty years supporting the Reds, I'll have never set off that early for a home game at Oakwell.
