There are a few reasons why kick-offs are delayed this time of year.
Arsenal’s game against Blackpool may have to be delayed, but it isn’t the usual cold weather or train cancellations halting this one.
It is a Blackpool fan refusing to get off the top of the Gunner’s coach. Yep, really.
The ‘fan’ is sitting on top of the team bus in protest against the ownership of Blackpool.
Police have been on the scene and it has been reported the Arsenal team are on their way in a different coach.
The game at Bloomfield Road was die to start at 5.30pm and yet start on time.
It is only in the FA Cup that you get to see situations like this.
Alexandre Lacazette saw the bloke on a bus and got a snap for his Instagram story – offering a real insight.
The last time a team bus was so relevant on these isles was ahead of man City and Liverpool’s Champions League quater-final last season.
While that game was mildly affected, today proves you don’t need bottles and flairs – just a stubborn middle aged man and a can-do attitude.
