Didn't think they could move games under 6 weeks notice at this time of the season.

Anyway don't the early Sunday games normally kick off at 1.30?

Stranded Anyway don't the early Sunday games normally kick off at 1.30?

How annoying! 12.30 is stupidly early for a Sunday kick off

A colleague got a text from Reading FC saying the same. SKY are showing the Carling Cup Final from 2.30 that day. Seems a bit odd to change this fixture so late in the day. I wonder how enforded the '6 week rule' actually is. They'd better not move the Boro game. :twisted:

That's the only game that's been moved up until the end of March.

Man City is same day as FA Cup Sixth Round, so that will end up being a mid week game if City are in that round, probably.

Setanta's fixtures now announced till the end of March. We've only featured twice on Setanta this season. What's the rule on number of appearances per broadcaster with the current TV deal? Could see a few of our games being shifted around in April and early May ...

I'm hoping to buy train tickets tomorrow for the Liverpool game, can anyone confirm that that game hasn't been changed as well? It's not on Setanta but Sky haven't updated there site yet so it doesn't say whether its on or not.

I hope we're not on Shitanta again. No coverage by Sky if we're on there, and if it's a midweek game too then no BBC either. Fcukers.

On the official site, Jackie Evans said that all the fixtures for February and March have been picked. Looks like only the Villa match has been changed. Be nice if SKY could update their fixture website, just for peace of mind.

Effing barsteward Murdoch and co.

That's another match this season myself and the kids are going to have to miss. Both play football on Sundays (it's not like two keepers can suddenly go missing from their teams) and thanks to the damn 12.30pm kickoff both will have to miss this game in order not to let their teammates down. A later kickoff would have meant at least one could have made it to the Villa game.

Serve the barstewards at Sky right if the game has to be postponed due to adverse weather, team going down with a virus or something similar.


Whatever my heart says, my brain is starting to think the club can get stuffed with their overpriced season tickets next year. They get the fans' season ticket money, they pocket the Sky blood money and yet still aren't prepared to compete financially in the PL.

The BBC has updated their site with the changes.
