FANTASTIC WRITE UP IN THE GUARDIAN...

 Both Sheffield teams playing at home

Although it’s not being shown on television, Sheffield Wednesday’s match against Reading at Hillsborough has been moved to Friday night due to both Steel City clubs being drawn at home for this weekend’s fourth round. On Saturday afternoon, Sheffield United will entertain Preston at Bramall Lane. It seems a shrewd move, particularly since the buildup to the recent dreary stalemate between United and Wednesday was marred by minor outbreaks of violence despite the presence of 500 police officers. With the potential for total chaos in Sheffield city centre nipped in the bud, supporters must rely on four teams, each with more pressing league concerns, to provide the entertainment instead.

It's radio for Cockney taxi drivers and people with a gambling problem. That is all.

Seem to remember a cup tie in the 80's where we played Everton at Hillsborough and the pigs played Liverpool at the lane, both at 3pm on a Saturday. Can anyone confirm if the city centre was carnage?

It shows there is something seriously wrong when 2 sides that play 3 miles apart cant play at the same time both opposing  clubs are not  renowned for football violence.The police and authorities  seem to manage in other cities.

All a matter of taste and on TalkSport it's a case of playing to the audience. On the Guardian's Football Weekly Podcast he's a good foil for the likes of Barney Ronay, Philipe Auclair and Jacob Steinberg. Not said anything wrong here.
