The date for the first Steel City derby of the season has been moved for TV purposes and will now clash with the Sheffield 10K.
Absolute carnage?

The 10k will take place about 4 miles from Hillsborough and will have been over for about 2 hours before the match kick-off.

Next carnage - man shops at Sainsbury's on the Moor as match kicks off at Bramall Lane and loaf gets squashed.

Carnage? What, as in "the violent killing of a large number of people"?

Blimey. Think I'll stop indoors then

I'd more call it "a poor decision but one that will nevertheless cause minor disruption for a relatively short period". But that's what you get when you let money and Sky take over what used to be the working person's sport. They call the shots and anyone else (public, fans and police) can take a running jump if they don't like it

Football has sold it's soul to Sky and the TV companies so they will do as they are told. The old adage "He who pays the piper calls the tune" still applies today.

Carnage?

Sky have insisted that the game us played on the Sunday. They will be keen to see the game kick off on time to fall in line with their worldwide schedules. Murdoch rules the roost.

Let's hope the 10k doesn't cause any delays to fans arriving at the ground on time.

There again it's a little far fetched to think that a game at Hillsborough could lead to carnage because the authorities didn't request a delay to kick off.

Do we ever learn?

Well, I guess that having over two months of notice might help people to plan a route that will get them to the game on time.

Anyone who gets caught out really doesn't deserve a ticket.

There are also likely to be large numbers of university students travelling to Sheffield that weekend, who will have no prior knowledge of either event.....

Hmmm... that settles it then...

... obviously BOTH the footy and the 10K MUST be cancelled now!

The safety and convenience of the finest young minds in our city must always come first...

2 hours? Really?

So, the run starts at 9.30am. The vast majority of people will take an hour, so 10.30, but there will be lots that take 90mins, so 11am.

Then, at 11am, there's the kids race, which takes another hour.

So the roads and crowds won't be gone till 12noon. 15 minutes before kick off.

Yes, it's 4 miles away, but it's also closing off most of the roads around Brammall Lane (Ecclesall Road, the road behind Debenhams etc), which are main bus routes through the city, not to mention the fact that a lot of people coming from the S2 area (united fans) will have to find different ways round to beat the road closures.

I think the OP is perfectly right to raise it as an issue.

Wow!

Have you realised how silly this whole 'panic' situation is?

Anyone would think that the city was about to implode under the stress of potentially having so many people on the streets, and that we were about to experience an event comparable only to the great Serengeti wildebeest migration.

Some people really need to get a grip!

Yes, it may be inconvenient for some and (shock, horror) people may have to plan their day in advance instead of just rolling out of bed and turning up.

But don't forget though that the majority of inhabitants will not be going to either event (or will be a returning student) and may welcome the fact that the city will be in 'meltdown' for only one day and not several days as might otherwise have been the case.

You don't agree. Some people are concerned. You're not. That's fine.

Stop the rolly eyes rubbish and grow up, please. There's no need for your tone at all.

I'm guessing by that response that you've now realised just how silly this is becoming...

... so my job here is done!

No, I just think you're a fool.

Or a child. School holidays I suppose.

I agree that football ahs sold it's soul and is therefore at the mercy of it's Sky overlords - SWFC don't have a home game kicking off at 3pm Saturday for over two months.

Also agree the clash isn't ideal, but lets have a bit of context. Granted the teams haven't played each other for a long time (United's fault not Wednesdays ) but how many arrests and how much trouble has there been in at recent matches? Its not the 80s anymore.

With a bit of planning by the powers that be, and on behalf of individuals/families I think both events can pass off successfully.

This is the same city that forgot to give water to runners a few years ago...
