Quite a strange decision. if crowds were allowed and Accrington brought 50-100 fans or Carlisle maybe 200-300 would they have still changed the kick off time and ssme if it was an away fixture for us

Makes perfect sense, I imagine the historical kick off times of 7.30/45 were implemented with the view that home supporters could get home from work, have their tea, go for a pint and then attend, no home fans, may as well make it earlier.

In some ways it would make even more sense to play the game at 3pm, embargo the result and then run the stream as live at 7pm, save a few quid on overnight stays for away club and floodlight costs for the home club.

I agree it makes more sense and imagine teams like Plymouth and Carlisle would be happy if the kick off times were brought forward during the week. I vaguely remember it was changed from 7.30 to 7.45 during Macari's time to give home fans more time to get to the ground etc.

People are at work at 3pm on a Tuesday. ratchet a recording, no way. I'd see the result one way or another Wink


7pm is no real difference from 7:45 for watching it, you'd need to be parked up close to 7 to get to the ground on time
