Thanks to the lads kindly donating our 4th Round tie to Wolverhampton Wanderers, Liverpool did not play at the weekend, yet there was still a game which interested the fans.
I don’t know if any of you have ever visited The Den, Millwall. It’s an odd place, situated in South East London not far from London Bridge station. I’ve been there both as a Liverpool fan and as a journalist and have witnessed both sides of the club. The 2004 League Cup victory there was not for the faint-hearted as the atmosphere was a thick and moody one but years later I was there to cover a few league games from the safety of the press box and press room and found the staff to be just about the friendliest you could wish to come across. No one likes them, they don’t care.
So when Leicester City were drawn there in the FA Cup my initial thought was ‘They won’t fancy that one little bit.’
This became relevant to LFC on Friday when it was announced that, in the events of a replay in that match, the Leicester – Liverpool game would revert back to the Saturday rather than the scheduled game on the following Monday. Thanks lads. A whole week’s notice. You spoil us.
It’s worth pointing out that the 4th round draw took place a couple of days following the Wolves game so you’d assume someone from the F.A would place the fixture, look at the surrounding games, work out the potential pitfalls of replays and plan ahead. You’d think that, wouldn’t you? And yet the day before the game an announcement is made about moving stuff around.
No big deal?
