The wife has just discovered the playoff final is the same day as 13:18 - Mar 6 with 4321 viewsBuhrer

the weekend away in Wales for her mum's birthday. She text me saying "couldn't you watch it on sky"?!!! which baffled and amused me as me and the boy (and the girl) would be there, and obviously I'm now desperately needing automatic to save my marriage. Advice appreciated.

We're in Cornwall that weekend, we go that week every year.

But I've always put the caveat in that should we ever get to a PO Final that weekend, I would pop up to London for the day.

More worringly, I've got a funeral down there to go (which I won't miss) provisionally set for Friday 5th April - the day before the Norwich game. If the Norwich game moves to the Friday night (unlikely), I won't be able to go. If it moves to the Saturday lunchtime (fairly likely), I have a big logistical puzzle to solve.

Couldn't the mother-in-law move to Ealing, Harrow or Uxbridge depending upon funds available at short notice? There are some fairly well-sheltered railway arches in Ealing.

I've reassured her that we're going up with Leeds, but with just the small caveat that if we did happen to get to a PO Final; I'm going, and I'm taking custody of the children that day for their own well being and best interests.... perhaps a divorce would be easier...

FFS.

I knew that was probably the most likely time and date, but didn't know it was confirmed.

I will watch that one on sky no bother, but more pressing is total radio silence from the wife after i told her I wasn't going to miss the game. She's home after 9.

Hold on, I have a plan for you and Burher

You are in Merthyr?

tell you wife you can make the cruise as a lifelong friend needs to to go to his mother-in-laws do that weekend cos he is busy/ill/at deaths door I'm sure you can blag that

Your wife think you are doing a really nice thing as says 'oh my what a wonderful man you are" and lets you off the cruise (and probably treats in you the bedroom cos you are being such an amazing guy)

Hey presto no cruise, obviously you dont know Burhers mum** in law so you just go to the match

Burher tells his wife that a long life dearly loved friend is having 'issues at home' so much so his wife has gone on a cruise without him and he is worried that the friend is so depressed he could done something stupid

Mrs B realises what a nice man her husband is and tells him to go and help his friend

Her presto you are both at the match

** the only minor flaw here is is your wife know Buhrers mother in law

If you are so negative as to think we'll need to make it through the Play-Offs then you deserve to be faced with this sort of dilemma.

On a more helpful and sympathetic note, get the PO Final moved to the Millenium Stadium. Phil can let you have some numbers to ring.

Thanks for this. I'll go with this plan - fool proof. Of course, we'll get automatic promotion anyway. I put a tenner on at 20-1 before the start of the season.

Thanks for this bonkers and incredibly cunning plan Kenners, I'll certainly have to apply some cunning linguistics if I'm going to keep her happy. I'm not sure I'm quite at the stage of creating suicidal friends just yet, probably just going to miss the weekend part and join them for a few days mon-weds, but I will keep this as plan B.

Imagine the problems Leicester fans will have if they make the cup final, finals two days running, at least you don't have that worry.

I think you'll be safe anyway, playoffs are not for us this year.

The best reply to that text is "OK, didn't realise the weekend away is being televised but that sounds good."

Alternatively, "obviously we will be there for the weekend away ... apart from the little trip to Wembley and back."
