We're al of nine days away from our first real cup final since 2013, which is both extremely exciting and more than a little messy for our schedule. We were originally supposed to take the trip to Leicester City's King Power Stadium rather than head to Wembley, and such is the nature of the English football calendar that we'll have to put off that meeting by almost two months -- we're now set to head there on April 29th, which will leave us with a game in hand on the rest of our title rivals for much of the rest of the season.

And speaking of the title race and April, the rest of our games that month have been shuffle around to accommodate both the Leciester game and the demands of the ever-hungry Television Gods. Our domestic April now looks like:

Stoke City; Saturday Apr. 4, 5.30pm
Queen's Park Rangers (A); Sunday Apr. 12, 1.30pm
Manchester United; Saturday Apr. 18, 5.30pm
Arsenal (A) - Sunday Apr. 26, 4pm
Leicester (A) - Wednesday Apr. 29, 7:45pm

That's obviously a crucial run, and probably where the title will be decided. But we've still got four more league games, a cup final and a Champions League tie to take care of before we hit that daunting-looking run. Let's take care of business there first.
