Apparently Chelsea have to play on Sunday because Liverpool didn't want to. Liverpool didn't want to play on the day of the Hillsborough disaster anniversary. Why? again I don't know. I know people died 20 years ago but that's no reason for a team to no want to play on a day. If u ask me build a bridge and make sure it holds your weight and get over it. This is a show of no support by the FA to the only British team left in European competition.
So Chelsea's FA cup semi-final was scheduled for Sunday 15th of April at 6pm, with the Barcelona Champion League semi on Wednesday. This all seems a bit ridiculous especially the 6pm. kick-off on a Sunday. When was the last match you saw on a Sunday kicking off at 6pm? Why 6pm? I have no Idea apparently it was a TV decision.
If Chelsea really wanted to make a point to the FA they would go out and play their reserve team against Spurs. Its not what I want to happen because I want Chelsea to win and Win the FA cup and the reserves wouldn't give us the best chance to win. But this is a ridiculous situation.
