seeing that tonights match is now frank bough- it cannot be played next midweek as on January 21st Watford are away to aston villa in the premier league. then the week after on January 28th we are at home to sunderland. so the first free midweek is in 3 weeks time. so god knows when it will be played.

Potentially the weekend of 25th Jan when it was designated for fourth round so neither club has a match (presuming our away at Blackpool was temp put on hold just incase)

Blackpool are still in the fa cup, they have a 3rd round replay tonight at home to Reading.. so they could be in the 4th round.. good chance now that the Blackpool v Tranmere league fixture on Jan 25th will not go ahead..on that day, they COULD be playing in the 4th round and Rovers MIGHT be playing in a 3rd round replay.

Some saying on social media that if the fourth round tie is delayed it could start eating into United or Wolves' winter break, especially if it needs a replay.

Good luck to the FA sorting all this out.

Bless them, no chance to go to warm weather to play a money spinning friendly

Thursday 23rd seems a bit odd, that's 48 hrs after they have played Villa and assuming Blackpool lose their 3rd round replay tonight, it will only be 48 hrs before we play Blackpool in league.. Possible we could put the Blackpool game back 24 hrs??? Why haven't TRFC waited till after tonights Blackpool replay to arrange the new date??? the 25th sounds the best option I reckon

So if we beat Watford then we have 72hrs before Mancs or Wolves..that has been scheduled for the Sunday 26th...if we lose to Watford and Blackpool lose their replay tonight then we only have 48 hrs till Blackpool league game on 25th.. could we ask for Blackpool league game to be put back 24 hrs?

Perhaps it'll be Tranmere reserves v Watford reserves, with us saving ourselves for a sunny weekend in Blackpool. All joking aside, the league must be the priority if the dates are that close, particularly with the cup being an evening kick off. The plot thickens, but Blackpools result may add some clarity.

if we lose to Watford and Blackpool lose tonight and the blackpool league game is to be on its scheduled Saturday then we will have less than 48 hrs, it will be about 40 hrs...surely the blackpool league game would have to be put back 24 hrs, wouldn't it?????

With the state of the pitch and the long term forecast, we could end up in the hat for round 5!

LOL about an hour too late with that breaking news. Hopefully plays into our hands if they face the prospect of 4 games in 9 days, they may not want to win it

That'd be a fair old challenge for the ticket office.
