I think the article that came up about the Wimbledon v Liverpool game being played indicated the draw would be before that game, so probably 7pm on BBC2 with the actual match build up following at...

I always thought the "no play on the middle Sunday" policy was to give them a chance to play catch up if quite a bit of the schedule in the first week was washed out (though I don't follow tennis too...

Not really relevant to anything to be honest. There's a mindblowingly wide difference between ads on TV and sponsors on shirts.

They'd be absolutely slaughtered if they did that and rightly so.

More likely I think is PL games scheduled for Dec 26/27 with a 2nd round of games on Dec 29/30 and the FA Cup 3rd round on Jan 2/3/4 and PL as normal on Jan 9/10

Arsenal v Hull IS a poor choice. It's only been picked because it's a repeat of last years final. It has nothing else going for it, and I wouldn't have picked it at all.

Nobody said anything about the fans of the 2 teams involved not caring who wins, more a case of people saying it's barely going to interest fans of either team, so why would anyone else be interested...

With 3 lives game that day plus at least another 2 moved to different kickoff times (seemingly due to police issues) I'd guess not too many as such. They may move ties like Blyth v Birmingham,...
