    2nd isn't it? Sunderland game is on a Friday too. October 14th game will be moved from the Saturday 15:00 slot as well. First plod will move it to 12:30 for "safety" reasons then Sky will shift it 13:00 or 17:30 on the Saturday or to the Sunday or maybe even to the Monday. Any change to this game will be announced on August 25th.

    as usual the fixture list published at the start of the season is utter dog turd


    It is not fair on the amsters of this world who have to plan months in advance.

    Will be interesting to see if the big decline in sky numbers is a blip or a trend....

    True Rob but that one was announced at the same time as the fixtures so arguably was not changed from a Saturday

    Trees home and away moved to 1 o'clock. No shocks there, plod responsible for that. I expect one of them, and probably both, to be moved again to satisfy the TV people.

    Sunderland at home moved from 15:00 on Easter Saturday to 19:45 on Good Friday. No reason given.
