    In other words "we've decided despite the results of the poll we put out to run the trial and bring a few kick offs forward anyway. We'll also disguise this by using the police as an excuse".

    Pathetic decision really, with no proper reasoning behind it

    I'm sure we've had more than our fair share of KO time changes already this season, compared to the rest of Leagues 1 & 2?

    Are we sure someone isn’t having an April fools joke?

    Only one thing for it.. boycott the game. Playing Grimsby at 3pm has never been an issue is the past.

    It's bs by the that dick in VP towers. Needs sacking.

    So what are they going to do next year if we go up and have sheff weds, Bolton, derby, Barnsley , Pompey, possibly hull and Huddersfield. They gonna make us kick off early every other week? All of those are like to bring 3 times as many as Hartlepool, Harrogate and Grimsby do

    I perhaps could understand that they would want to bring the visit of Hartlepool forward, given some of the issues that have occurred over the last couple of visits.

    Ironically we play them two weeks earlier on the 18th March, yet the kick off is still at 3.00pm!

    It can’t be an issue with Floodlights on the 1st April, as Sunset isn’t until is until 19.42.

    Why can’t City publish the Police report? A bit of transparency?

    Perhaps someone could ask to see the Police report. https://www.westyorkshire.police.uk/form/freedom-of-information-request

    I can’t believe it is a shortage of Police. Those from East of Pudsey are due to play at Arsenal at 3.00pm on 1/4/2023.

    I'm presuming it is due to Grimsby fans reputation and there over 200 banning orders that have been given to their fans, compared to 12 to us.

    Blimey just checked and you are correct. By stealth they are moving the games forward.

    It seems games which are considered as local are being moved on a more frequent basis.

    Remember they claimed the Harrogate game needed to be 12.30 because of bonfire night. Our games at Hartlepool and Harrogate away have been moved. The Hartlepool home game and now the Grimsby Town home game have been moved. They must be itching to move the Mansfield game too.

    We are starting to see the impact of the poor behaviour of a minority which gives the police a reason to say they think there's an increased risk of disorder coupled with Grimsby's reputation for causing issues. Huddersfield are also at home to Middlesbrough which probably impacts the police resources.
    If we go up we'll have more money coming in which will mean we can afford to pay the police more and the police will be able to justify spending more for higher up games

    Exactly. Every other team in every other league seems to be able to manage fine with 3pm kick off times. Doesn't make an ounce of difference moving the kick off time a couple of hours.

    The only games that Hartlepool and Grimsby Town, have an early kick off in the league, is at Valley Parade. The rest of their Home and Away games start at 3.00 pm or 7.45 pm. That seems to suggest that the issue is more related to City.:confused:

    Do we want mamby Pamby police or no nonsense police ?
    It’s only because of the pc / woke brigade that police aren’t allowed to lay a finger on anyone these days.
    Fans might behave better if there was a risk of being smashed round the legs with a batton.
