Birmingham Change A Clarets Fixture Yet Again!

Birmingham Change A Clarets Fixture Yet Again!

The Clarets Championship game at home to Birmingham City, originally scheduled for Tuesday, March 6 has been postponed.

This is due to Birmingham City`s FA Cup replay with Chelsea taking place on the same evening.

The home match has now been rescheduled for Tuesday April 3, KO 7.45pm

Birmingham's exploits in the various cup competitions this season have been the bane of Burnley fans and the club's preparations with now both the away and home fixture having been postponed and dates rearranged.

The away fixture back in August had to be arranged due to Birmingham's Europa Cup progress.

Burnley wil now have to wait until early April before they can try and plot revenge for the 2-1 defeat at St Andrews back in November.

Oh well at least this one was already on a Tuesday so we won't be losing a Saturday fixture. Hate Saturdays without a game!

This is BS!! I ordered a trip to UK specially with that game in mind.. Watford, B.ham and Palace.. This pis*es off and gives a even better reason to dislike those blue ********s!
20/02/2012 14:09:00
Pardon my language. But After having planned this trip ever since the fixtures came out, this is something that messes up a lot of planning...

I can understand your frustration. You might like to make a complaint via the club's media manager, Darren Bentley. You might get some sort of compensation. Vaguely remember some other Norwegians getting recompense when this sort of thing happened previously, I think in this case due to TV.

Sent a compalint to the club, but I doubt that anything will happend. Well, I have to make the best out of the stay anyway.. Nagging and getting annoyed won't do any good ;/ A.Stanley are playing away too, if anyone knows of any other sports that are played out that week, I'd be glad to hear about it.

Oh dear, poor old Nor has been a very unfortunate here. Not quite the same of course but are there any other local games that he could attend if he sticks to his plans? I think TMP is right though, there was a similar situation a year or so ago though this time round it doesn't look like the club had much choice but to switch the game. However, Dazzy B seems quite a reasonable sort of bloke and it doesn't do any harm to contact him. Am I right in thinking that this new date is the Tuesday before Easter so this will mean three or four games quite close together. Not a problem if we're in a run of good form, but a ready made excuse if we're not.

Yep It always pays to complain Nor although I doubt if you had travel i.e flights etc, worth a shot though, I never used to complain about anything but now find it's the way forward in most cases whatever your complaining about, a bit sad really but folk need your custom, hope you get it sorted.

I contacted D.Bentely and as suspected there is limited (not a thing) he or the club can do as this is FA who has postponed that match due to the cup.. As RickersTwickers mentioned, I'm looking for alternative sporting events nearby. I know that A.Stanley are playing away, but it might be an option to travel to London with the U18 in the Youth FA cup, but that depends on the transport..
21/02/2012 08:21:00
I'd write to the FA nor, I seriously would. The more who complain,the more something might eventually be done!
