Can imagine a 12pm or 1pm start for us next weekend. Prince's funeral at 3pm, FA Cup semis at 5.30 and so I'd have thought an early start. Sadly for me have got a game of golf booked in at 12pm ☹️

The funeral isn't going to be a state occasion is it? Will there be some sort of procession?
If not what is there to see, is this more about enforced, national mourning for a man most of us don't know rather than a clash of TV schedules.
I'm not a royalist but from what I've seen and read about Prince Philip didn't he hate a fuss, he would probably prefer the rest of the country to carry on as normal.

Saturday 12.30ish is probably the optimum time, with no disruption to the midweek fixtures as would be the case if the games were move to Sunday.

Live on TV. EFL have said they're in conversation to rearrange the fixtures.

Not exactly a huge spectacle and I just don't know the bloke!
Should have been Thursday at 11am but then in order to give it the gravitas they want to bestow on it they would be under pressure to give us a day off work.
Sad for his family but this has annoyed me, I just know it will be a noon kick off.
