I would put good money on them getting the Premiership rights back. The clusterfuck of The Premiership when they managed to screw up having Des Lynam as host has been forgotten and with just the internationals for the next few years they will be desperate to get them.

If that were to happen, ITV would have to introduce a subscription channel - Sky Sports is at least £25 a month and they have ad breaks. They might get the Monday night games or propose Friday evenings I but can't see ITV ever being able to afford the Sunday games.

Van Gaal really getting into United manager mode now.

Every aspect of a match is against us, said Van Gaal, who rested Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata for the tie. We have to come here, the pitch isnt so good, that can influence that you can play in another style. The opponents always give a lot more than they normally give and defending is always easier than attacking. Then you have seen the referee its always the same. Everywhere I have coached these games, and I have coached them with other clubs, its always the same.

Not sure what Chris Foy did wrong, I thought he had a decent match and despite the weather the pitch wasn't in bad shape.

Yea not great comments but the pitch was awful and genuinely worse than my home pitch In Sheffield (amatuer sat league).

The bobbles made it impossible to control properly and get slick passing going, this was a massive benefit to the defending side.

Really happy that a side like Cambridge can make their years income in one game.

They'll get 42.5% of gate receipts from the replay, massive boost in merchandise sales etc. and probably fill 50 odd coaches and make money on that. They'd have got 45% of the gate tonight and TV money of £70k. Is that really £1.7m?

Just going by the Guardian on that one. BBC said £1.5m shortly after the game.

But that's revenue for about 35,000 tickets for a start. So there's a million+
