Games moved for TV 2019/20

Recommended Posts

It’s not fair that some teams play on 29th and get a three day gap between games, and some play on the 28th. We have to play two days after an 8pm kick off, Liverpool don’t play until Sunday 29th. Surely puts us at a disadvantage compared to some.

So West Ham away isn't on TV - it's moved to 1730 to assist with resting time. Newcastle away appears to be shown on BT regardless. West Ham home is 1930 on TV as well. 

 

Loads of stuff here I didn't know they had rights too.

The Christmas/ New Year week is very contentious. In the last three years, I think we've had the shortest time span for all the games we've had to play, including two early kick-offs on New Year's Day/ 2nd and four games from the 23rd to the 1st of January.

 

You really are at the mercy of the TV schedulers. I recall a few years ago that Southampton played on the 28th, 31st and 2nd away at Everton whilst Chelsea played on the 26th, 31st and 4th away at Tottenham.

 

It is a lottery over this time.

Genuinely just thinking this myself. Boxing Day is THE day. 

haha innit. i could probably have gone to the last 2 or 3 boxing day home games but haven't because the fact i'd miss like 6 or 7 hours of proper boxing day fun would've ruined me. banging it on tele is superb.

How do you become a member of Amazon Prime Sport*?

 

*Not keen on more competition for showing football games, particularly with Amazon having no links with live games before this happening.

You just get the normal £7.99 a month prime. You get all the prime features, including the sport. They offer a lot of free trials too. I've used about 4 free trials but I currently have another one available to me so I'll probably claim that at the start of December. Also, if you or anyone you know is a student with an email address linked to a school/university, you can get a 6 month free trial.

8pm on boxing day is an absolute disgrace. What a stupid time for a football match the day after Christmas. No thought for travelling fans whatsoever .

Looks like it. And the new kick off times? 

That first week has knocked two other games back to Sunday- Sheffield United at Norwich and Southampton at Newcastle. Two awkward and long trips for the away fans on a Sunday morning.

As long as we keep up our form the Liverpool game on Boxing Day is the standout match that day.

 

The fact that Liverpool have such a large worldwide support played a part in this. Adds pressure to pubs to subscribe to it being a busy day for them.

It is. no doubt. I'm fuming because it really ruins my plans. BUT if we were a 3pm kick off, I'd be glad to get home and sit down and watch another PL game on TV with no real thought about the fans of those club affected.

 

It is what it is I think. Clubs get way more money from TV than from gate receipts so unless there can be a mass boycott (which there won't be) we just have to suck it up

What was wrong with my topic about not playing boxing day games?

Did we have to walk a long distance to read it?

I went to the recent West Brom v Huddersfield match, Sunday midday kick off. To air their protest, the Baggies fans chanted "fùch Sky Sports" from the start, but as only about 20 of them took part it was amusing rather than serious. These changed kick off times infuriate lots of fans but we're stuck with it as a consequence of our status.

Leeds sing it all time when they’re on tv. Can always tell because that’s when the tv starts to get quieter..

This’ll be controversial but I’m chuffed to be honest. I can’t get to matches all that often because I can rarely afford it and I’m always working (though I appreciate the ire of others); these changes make the games a bit more accessible for me to illegally stream them or go to my local who illegally stream them while giving me alcohol. 
 

Also, the more TV games we have the more money the club makes - £10m per game if I recall correctly. More money, more exposure is good for us.

tbh, I would have expected lpool to be the early k/off as this game will no wbe 4am in the far east !

 

Making it the evening game is more about domestic audience than global imo

Looks like no trains on the boxing day. If we can get tickets (and presumably we will be to as we are both members) I am wondering about just taking it a bit more relaxed and staying at the Holiday Inn. Anyone else stayed there to know how nice it is? 

We've stayed there before and it's fine, better than some other Holiday Inns
