Date for 2nd Leg?
« on: March 22, 2002, 02:54:55 pm »
Does anyone know whether the 2nd leg will be played on the 9th or 10th April as I want to book my flight? Nearest airports are Cologne and Dusseldorf right??

Probably appear on the official site site soon. Have to wait to get the agreement of TV companies, etc, so that no clash with MU fixture (I'd assume).

Hopefully will be some time this afternoon.

What if we have to play away on the 9th?
We've got Blackburn on the 7th.
Have to cancel the Grand national & play on Saturday ;D

Steve_M the Mancs will be at home when we are away so there will be no clash of fixtures. The only parameters will be what the TV companies want to do.

Cynical Moi?

Apparently the 2nd leg is the 9th (tuesday night) with the 1st leg being on the 3rd (wednesday night)  will double check to make sure.

Uefa's site is stating that we will be playing the home leg on Wednesday 3 April. Nothing yet about away leg. Blackburn game is scheduled for Sunday 7 April (as Grand National is on the Saturday). Will we have to play on Tuesday 9 April? Will the Blackburn game be brought forward to Saturday morning kick-off to give us more time to prepare?

Old Scallwag, sorry mate, didn't make that too clear. I was refering to a TV clash. Couldn't see ITV wanting the two English teams play on the same night.
