Chelsea will take on Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup 5th round tie on Saturday February 13.

But in an attempt to offset any potential crowd trouble, the match will start at noon.

While there is no historical trouble of note between the two sets of fans, police fear the high-profile match could bring out the dormant hooligan fan who has either stopped coming to games or 'retired' from their antisocial activity.

What do you think of a high noon kick-off?
