Cup clash to be televised

Last updated : 11 December 2003 By Martyn Elliott

It seems that the normal lack of thought has been given to travelling supporters when the television schedules are arranged, leaving United fans with a 340-mile return journey to make with little in the way of public transport still running.

Of course if you aren’t planning to go to the game you might regard the BBC’s choice as good news.

Until you consider our record at Southampton.
