Confirmed on BBC too, other likely to follow suit as there are some long distance away journeys on Sat

Makes sense, the extra hour will help people who want to get home for the England game without moving it too far forward that it may muck up peoples plans pre-game. Obviously, there will be examples where the shift will have caused an issue but otherwise this makes sense.

Yep, happy with this being bought forward, just allows a little bit of buffer.

I'm not so sure. The World Cup schedule was known years in advance. The World Cup draw was made in March this year so everyone knew this was a strong possibility. And the Championship fixture list has been known since June so did a decision really need to be made so close to the game.

As for fixtures adjustments this year, we've been hit particularly hard this season and with the constant train strikes/season break, it's been pretty shit from a fixtures standpoint. The list of games we've had moved;

Stoke (H) - Sky
Watford (A) - Queen
QPR (A) - Sky
Preston (H) - Sky
Birmingham (A) - Sky
Swansea (H) - Sky
Norwich (A) - moved as a result of the Swansea game
WBA (A) - moved as a result of the Swansea game
Watford (H) cup - international broadcast

And the good news is that Reading did actually win one of those moved games played so far. Lost the other 3 of course but they can be put down to the dreaded combining of Sky coverage with playing at night.

Really looking forward to the next Friday nighter :roll:

I'd rather they sorted the traffic and public transport options (two sides of the same coin), it really shouldn't take 3 hours to get home after a game - and I speak as someone keen for refreshment following the final whistle.

Getting out of the car park and then driving home to the Coventry area could easily take three hours though.

Especially with the bumper crowd. Will be large queues for the p&r I’d imagine as well.

But as a more general point, it should be much easier to get out. Things have helped with the bus lane on A33 between the ground and M4.

They could always leave early when they are 5-0 down :D

I know right? What should be a 90 minute drive from Reading to Coventry could be as much as double that purely due to local traffic issues.

That's exactly the point I'm making Forester, but thanks for spelling it out perhaps others didn't get it as well.

No need to thank me, mate. I'm just glad I could help.

Why has our game moved forward but none of the others have?

I guess both clubs couldn’t agree in others situations.

Or aren't blighted by the same traffic issues
