Anyone know the potential play off dates in May?

If i remember right it's decided when they know which teams are in and agree dates.

Not easy to book a short break when you could miss the matches!

Could get cheap flights too!

:(

Apparently Sky have the rights and there's already a few Premiership matches scheduled to be on... so the play offs are all over the place.

Sky are giving the dates as any time between 8th and 17th May. Will see if I can track them down.

EDIT: A Reading forum is giving them as:

1st Legs

Sat 9th May - 17.15
6th placed team at home versus
3rd placed team

Sun 10th May - 11.30
5th placed team at home versus
4th placed team

2nd Legs

Tues 12th May - 19.45
3rd placed team at home versus
6th placed team

Wed 13th May - 19.45
4th placed team at home versus
5th placed team

Final

Mon 25th May - 15.00
Wembley Stadium

Obviously... these are still provisional.

That's what was posted on BU too.... final is definitely on the Monday, that's confirmed on FL website.

I hope they're right, 'cos then we miss none with our holiday :D

Still provisional, but they've changed:

1st Legs

Friday 8th May - 19:45
6th placed team at home versus
3rd placed team

Sat 9th May - 17.20
5th placed team at home versus
4th placed team

2nd Legs

Mon 11th May - 19:45
3rd placed team at home versus
6th placed team

Tues 12th May - 19.45
4th placed team at home versus
5th placed team

Interestingly, they're also apparently playing another match at Wembley while the Championship play-off final is going ahead: http://www.football-league.co.uk/page/KeyDates/0,,10794~1357319,00.html

Bit unfair that :D

Bollocks. We've got a work night out that I have to go to on the night of the 8th. I just asked about the possibility of not going and people were not impressed :(

looks like I'll be taking my radio...

I had the same... Simple solution, explain that football is more important than anything else :)

You never know, you might not have the problem ;)

I tried that... the looks I got were best described as 'poisonous'. I'm the only Blade in the office and one of only a few football fans, so I've got no chance.

This is true though - we could yet go up auto (or I suppose not finish 3rd...)!

Me and you both DD. Except my tipple was a rather splendid Bordeaux claret! :D :D

Claret? Aren't burnley called the clarets? you drank a splendid Burnely.

I would have enjoyed a splendid Claret but in the pub it would have cost over £50, even a champagne Blade like me has to draw the line somewhere in credit crunch Britain.

I'm glad you enjoyed though:D:D

If we dont finish in the top two playoff places I am well shafted. I am in play on Saturday 9th and would have to miss the home leg if we finish 5th or 6th. Bugger!!!!
