Arsenal fans have been left furious by the news that their mammoth FA Cup Quarter-Final tie with Manchester United has been moved to Monday 9th March and a 7:45pm kick-off.
The news means that fans travelling to Old Trafford from London will miss the last train back to the capital, which leaves Manchester before the game finishes. In a shocking move from the Football Association and the BBC, fans are understandably furious.
The channel and the governing bodies could have chosen matches between Liverpool and Blackburn or Aston Villa and West Brom for the game, two local derbies, but they decided to screw with the away fans.
7:45pm FA Cup kick off. Fans travelling to Old Trafford shown not respect and the governing bodies simply don’t care. Shocking #AFC

Putting Manchester Untied vs Arsenal in an FA Cup QF at 7:45pm on a Monday evening is very close to the definition of bonkers
