Got lucky as had hotel booked for Sat night and managed to switch both trains to get up later and come back on 17.48 for no extra fees - absolute rubbish though

Why can't Liverpool play their cup game on Wednesday?

Part 1
Because Spurs Arsenal and Liverpool all play on Sunday before in FA Cup
So Neither match can be played on Tuesday

And part 2
Chelsea play Sat 1230 after the semi (Crucially ON TV) so Chelsea cant play Thursday

As I suggested however it could all be sorted by moving Spurs v Morecambe FA Cup back to Saturday 8th
So Spurs v Chelsea could be on Tues 11th

If that had happened then Liverpool COULD play their cup game Weds

If it was a third round match then the club MAY accept playing Sunday then Tuesday

But a Semi Final involving two of the "Big Six"

No Chance !!!

Can we go back to the championship and play Saturday 3pm every week. There’s some obvious pros to being in the prem but there’s a load of cons too.
If we’d been in the Championship and our opponent on the Saturday had an EFL Cup SF on the Thursday would the game stay on Saturday?

Tottenham game was selected for overseas broadcasting, it is far from ideal but our game at Anfield isn't on television so was the only game that could be changed. It is almost impossible to keep up with PL fixtures. When you initially raised the issue this morning I immediately changed my hotel and train booking, it was obvious there was just no other option opened to the PL but to move our game, as annoying as it is!

No it would move to Sunday

Did happen a bit with clubs playing Thursday for Sky (admittedly not a SF)

I am on the Avanti website now and have been w***ing around for 20 minutes. I booked an anytime ticket. It SEEMS to me the only options in that case are to fill in a form and they will get back to you (f*** knows when) or get a refund, there is no option to just pay extra money and change trains.

Am I wrong here. ? Has anyone else with this ticket type managed to change.

If so I guess I need to fill in a form and when they get back to me if its a rip off ask for a refund then book another way up there.

I am also in a f***ing queue on the phone while I type. totally not needed

Any ideas what time the official coaches ( :sick: ) are likely to leave Brentford?

OK. It seems pretty clear to me after downloading the app and looking at the website that if you have advanced tickets you can change on line but if you have off peak returns you cannot. So i fill in the form and hope they give me a good price, if they do not I cancel, for a £10 fee (is that in total or per ticket?) and make other arrangements.

That is how I see it, if I am wrong can someone (other than Judio) tell me.

That sounds correct to me, unfortunately, per here Train Ticket Changes | Change Ticket | Avanti West Coast
If you had an advanced ticket it is more of an automated process.

Train tickets are cheaper on the Sunday as of a few hours ago...could you apply for the voucher here Refunds | Avanti West Coast (linked from here COVID-19 Travel Information | Avanti West Coast)
And then just re-book at the lower price? plenty of other away days where you can use the voucher once issued.

They’ve just cancelled and rebooked our group which we’re off peak tickets (not advanced) to following day free of charge.

They called it a goodwill gesture when replying to my email, seems odd that can change an advance ticket easier than a standard full price off peak ticket. Advance tickets always thought harder to make amendments.

I have advanced tickets going up on the Friday and back on Sunday lunchtime.

As I had used the print at station option and already collected the tickets from Twickenham station, the Avanti website would not allow me to amend the booking. I called Avanti and a bloke told me I could try getting them amended at Twickenham station (no luck with that) or buy new tickets going up on Saturday and back Monday and then take a photo of my cut up current tickets that I have and then apply for a refund online. He said there was no guarantee they would be refunded.

I don't really trust what he was saying so think I'm going to cut up the tickets, take a photo and send them to Avanti with the hope that they will refund me. I've got an option of a car share up there so may do that instead.

The bit about getting it sorted at Twickenham station was just a total lie to get your off the phone. I was lucky I hadn't yet picked up my tickets from the machine. Not sure what difference it would have made but I am sure it wouldn't have helped my cause.

Funnily enough, that's what the bloke at Twickenham Station said too......

Thameslink's online refund process is similar I found out for the cancelled MUFC game. Take a photo of the unused ticket with unused written on it, then another of it cut in half.

Havent had the money through yet but did say it could take up to a month.

That doesn't really explain why the two SFs can't both be on the Wednesday. If they are televised by Sky or whoever they could have been on separate channels. I suppose the real reason is that the advertisers wouldn't get two bites at the cherry in that case.

I am sure they are happy to do that once we have all revised our travel plans for a Sunday 2pm kickoff.
