The Cup Final

Is the Saturday 3pm live TV ban not still in effect?
Not when there are no Premier League games on. That's why Soccer Saturday can show goals as they go in during international breaks but can't on normal weekends.

The 5.30pm cup final kick off only came in from 2012 onwards, but the 3pm TV block has been in for much, much longer.

As I said, highly debatable!!!
Man United were immense in their two periods of dominance, but I don't think they were anywhere near as good as this current Man City team. If they come even close to 100 points again next season that would be the clincher for me, and I can't see how anyone will stop them doing that.
I really think that if KDB is healthy all season, Manchester City wins the quadruple. I know Man City was great all season, but De Bruyne is on another level.

As for the kickoff time, many of us in the States would have been just fine with a 10 AM ET kickoff. Hell, I wake up for the 6:30 Chicago time kickoffs on Saturdays. A 3 PM London kickoff would be a non issue for us, as that would be 7 AM on the West Coast.
