Luton were late coming out for the start of today’s FA Cup match against Chelsea – fair enough, it happens. And the snow falling heavily all morning made a good excuse.
When they appeared a full TEN minutes late for the second half however, more explanations were needed.
The BBC, who are covering the game in the UK, had one potential reason – the clock in the temporary dressing room in the Stamford Bridge hotel was slow.
You can see the BBC team discussing it in the clip embedded here:
An extended break at Stamford Bridge… might be time for some new batteries in the changing room clock!? 😂#FACup live text: https://t.co/ukP9K78IRh#bbcfacup #CHELUT pic.twitter.com/0VPKK2sjqD

It’s perfectly possible – unlike in the proper dressing rooms where there’s an automated bell that goes after 15 minutes, there’s no such techn involved when it comes to this Covid-contingency dressing room.
Or was it all mind games from Luton manager Nathan Jones?
