Fulham v Liverpool: Important update

The following statement has been released this evening by Fulham Football Club.

 

 

"Following a number of enquiries regarding how the potential London Underground strike action may affect Wednesday evening's fixture against Liverpool, the club can confirm that it is currently proceeding on the basis that the game will go ahead.

 

"However, the club has concerns over the potential impact that the strike may have on the ability of its safety staff to attend the ground in sufficient time and numbers to ensure that it is able to open the ground and effectively operate it, from the time that the gates are open to the public until the departure of all supporters.

 

"After consulting with the Local Authority and the Metropolitan Police, it has been decided that if the proposed action is still undetermined at 3pm tomorrow (Tuesday), and the club cannot guarantee enough staff are available to attend the ground in sufficient time and numbers, then as a consequence the club would not be able to comply with the terms of its safety certificate and the fixture would be postponed and rescheduled for a future date.

 

"A further statement will be released at 3pm tomorrow to confirm whether the game will go ahead or be postponed."

 

A Liverpool Football Club spokesperson said: "We will inform supporters through our official channels as soon as more information becomes available regarding the fixture.

 

"The safety and well-being of supporters has to be the paramount concern of everyone involved in this process."

You cannot overstate what a colossal pain in the arse London is when there is any sort of travel disruption. It takes a staggering amount of time to get anywhere. 

 

Presumably the same will go for the Mancs at Arsenal.

Leave earlier to get to the ground on time. It's not like there's a flood and the train lines don't exist. Replacement buses? If overground stations are still running, there's two of them within walking distance and Putney is a British Rail station - still operational. Jeeze.

Arsenal is on so no reason for this to be called off. The PL need to step in and tell them it's on.

the fulham players need the rest more than we do so this is a bit shit, also echoing what others have said, the tube strike is no excuse to call this off as a lot of tube lines are still running just with some station closures and reduced services and the club is well served by other means of transport anyway.

Weren't the strikes announced ages ago? Only now they put out a statement? How's that work like?

The PL should tell them the game is going ahead regardless due to such short notice.

I have absolutely no idea how I will get to craven cottage if there is no tube. Fulham's website isn't very helpful either.

 

I would accept postponement if the strike goes ahead. Well stuff them whenever it is played
