Manchester United game to be re-scheduled


12110_ori_boleyn_ground_upton_park_West Ham’s Premier League home game against Manchester United on Saturday 23rd April will be re-scheduled it has been confirmed.

Updating their supporters on the Red Devils have confirmed:

“The fact that one of either United or West Ham will progress to the last four of the famous competition means the league meeting between the two sides will be postponed as it’s scheduled for the same weekend that the FA Cup semi-finals are due to take place, on 22/23/24/25 April.”

“We’ll bring you news of the rearranged matches in due course and we’ll let you know the date of United’s quarter-final meeting with West Ham at Old Trafford as soon as it is confirmed by the FA.”

boleynRe-scheduling the league match could prove difficult if Manchester United remain in the Europa League competition as far as the semi-finals. As we reported before, Manchester United could possibly end up as the last game at the Boleyn Ground and become a mid-week evening event the week before our last game of the season away against Stoke City.

    No disrespect to Swansea but Manscum will be a fitting last game at the famous old Bolylen, even better that it will be under the lights which always makes for a great night at any time. The last game ever to be played there should be against one of the biggest/best teams of resent times. Like i said a fiiting farewell.. coyi

    • Sorry but I personally disagree. It won’t be the same party atmosphere as it would on a Saturday. The Farewell to Boleyn Ground is the important part not the opposition. I would prefer to party on into the early hours in the local Plaistow taverns one last time.

      On a work day we will all be worrying about getting our last trains home.

    I can see your point sean. At the same time though we have had many a fantastic game under those lights. Most resently FA Cup v L’pool. Shame we cant get an arrangement with the FA to get the game changed to a saturday/sunday after the swansea game.
    thanks for putting my farewell Boleyn tale. (was essexirons on here but forgot password)
