    Not really because unless the Premier League move a game there really is no room until after the semi finals

    The FA will figure it out they have to.

    Why has this not caused a problem before?

    United played 20 games in 70 days when they won it.

    Chelsea played more I think.

    Same time of year and both still in all cups.

    Just scheduling I assume, strange as you say, maybe the number of summer tournaments we had has pushed back the CWC or something?

    Looked at fixtures we had that season.

    Screenshot_20191103-180903_Chrome.jpg

    3,4 and 5 days between all games for two and half months.

    Won CWC, League Cup and League. Runner up in CL and FA Cup Semifinals. Played in Super Cup an Charity shield too.

    Basically 1 game away from playing in every game in every available tournament.

    Sigh. Those were the days. :)

    It has. That's why your lot didn't play in the FA Cup in 2000 wasn't it?

    Yeah but at least they withdrew at the start of the season didn't they?

    Rather than play some games, get through and then it be a problem. Not saying Liverpool are wrong for participating - just saying it wasn't as big an issue last time as United simply didn't bother.

    According to this article, they were even encouraged to not play in the FA Cup:

    Football: United withdraw from FA Cup

    No rearranged fixture. No withdrawal.

    All that bluster and hot air for nothing :laugh:

    Yeah the 'integrity' will be kept with this silly little competition when Liverpool are forced to play the under eights here will it. Bunch of tubes.
