Stupid Snow means Carling Semi is off

Stupid Snow means Carling Semi is off

The Rovers v Villa Carling Cup tie that was due to take place tonight has been officially postponed.

Heavy snow in the North West of England and in the Midlands has meant that common sense has had to prevail as the conditions around the ground were an absolute nightmare.

The pitch itself is playable but the fans safety is of first concern and that is fair enough.

What a disappointment...

Not good at all and there will be a lot of disappointed people but it is for the best, although it might not seem like it now!!

Pity but at least they made a decision early - as it happens I'm snowed in for the first time in years so I doubt that I had any realistic hope of crossing the pennines tonight! Here's looking forward to the rearranged fixture - hope it upsets Villa preparations more than Rovers!

PS. Any hope that the rearranged fixture will be after the trip to Villa Park? I quite fancy our chances if the 'second leg' is at Ewood!!!

Tr1dent I think its fair to say none of us want Diouf back and that if he plays he will pose more threat to us than to Villa. Anyway I think Thursday the 14th has been set aside as the date for the fixture. The second leg is on the 20th I think

guys i read somewhere that this game must be played before the villa game, regardless, and it takes precedent over EPL games......pick a date and away we go......also, this sort of thing never happens in Sydney :D
