Manchester United’s FA Cup quarter-final encounter will be played at 7.45pm on Monday 9 March.
For traveling fans, including the away section of Arsenal supporters, a mid-week fixture can be a disaster.
I’ll be sticking to what I said before, midweeks are a no-go for me, big or small. Another game missed this season.

The fixture has been scheduled to be broadcasted on BBC One, who have given no consideration whatsoever to travelling fans. There is also uncertainty for Arsenal fans with there being no trains returning to London after the game.
Either way, I guess, we should be happy enough to have a decent cup run under our belt. Beating the cup holders will make it all the better.
