Title: Games Moved for TV
Post by: Ads on October 10, 2018, 08:37:51 PM
Noses game moved to 25th November for a 12:00 kick off. Shock horror.

Boro away on 1st December has been moved to half 5.

Albion away now 7th December, Friday night at 8pm!

They have an influence though.

Normal allocation = X amount of officers that you're paying for.

It's utterly pathetic of the SAG and all three Birmingham clubs ought to give their heads a wobble.

Sky so yes that wierd lower tier Witton camera angle for the SHA game.

Anyone know why it seems to rotate from that angle (Preston) to the traditional on the roof angle for other games?
Title: Re: Games Moved for TV
Post by: cdbullyweefan on October 12, 2018, 12:27:44 AM
Preston was just a red button game so shown with minimal fanfare and cost. Blose will be a "proper" Sky game so will have all the angles you'd expect, as well as actual replays.

The Red Button games have no director or editor on hand do they? It's just a single feed job, even though there are other cameras there that can be edited and used for highlights later.

Actually the PNE game had close ups of the players when they scored so it was more than one camera, it's the usual Saturday 3pm games that look like Sunday league games being filmed.

Anybody else use 'Now T.V.' to access the games?

Blast from the past - I recall playing Albion on a Friday night in December 87 just before Christmas. Anyone of the elder statesman know why this was moved at the time? Fairly entertaining 0.0 if I recall. I think BFR was managing them in his 2nd spell.

Maybe because it would be easier to police on a Friday than on the last Saturday before Christmas. Or because Russ Abott was due to appear in panto at the Hippodrome, they had some strange reasons in the late 80s.

We're into November now and the Championship clubs are still waiting to hear what games will be on live tv over Christmas and New Year. It's a poor show from the TV companies, does it not occur to them that fans need to make plans for that period.

The Premier league live games go up to the end of January and they were announced sometime ago.


Title: Re: Games Moved for TV
Post by: QuintonVilla on November 01, 2018, 11:36:09 AM
Our home game with Leeds is a cert to be on. It won't be the Friday night as Wolves Liverpool is on. It will be the 5:30 game on the Saturday.

Can't see Sky putting Stoke home or Preston away on. Swansea away on Boxing Day is a possibility, although Sheff Utd v Derby will be on I reckon.

A 0-0 draw and a rubbish game.  Iím sure Don Goodman missed a sitter though.  Moved to Friday because in them days that Saturday in December was normally bad for attendances so they wanted more there.

On that weekend on Sky Wolves v Liverpool is Friday night so that's out. Arsenal v Burnley 12:30 Sat so that's out.
Currently there's no Sky game at 5:30 on the Saturday or 1:30 on the Sunday. So we will be either of those against Leeds. Hopefully the Saturday.

Wigan should be fine (I'm hoping so as I've already booked train tickets from Edinburgh!) as the league agreed with Sky that there would be a minimum 5 week commitment for making any changes. Specific dates are below - it looks like they will release the remaining January TV fixtures tomorrow anyway to give you a bit more confidence.

TV selection dates 2018/19 (Illustrative but subject to a five-week minimum notice commitment)

Remainder of August Selections for 11 August to 25 August by 28 June

Not for telly, but there are some potential fixture changes which may come about as a result of cup involvement. Thought I would list them as I am bored at work, and it might help someone if they like to make advance plans to attend games.

Ipswich (h), scheduled for 26th January, will move if either team makes Round Four. They're away to Accrington Stanley in Round Three so would be expected to progress.

West Brom (h), scheduled for 16th February, will move if either team makes Round Five. They host Wigan in Round Three.

Middlesbrough (h), scheduled for 16th March, will move if either team makes the Quarter-Finals.

Sheffield Wednesday (a), scheduled for 6th April, will move if either tean makes the Semi-Finals.

Note that potential replays are unlikely to cause rearrangements as Villa have free midweeks on the dates set aside for Third/Fourth Round Replays, while there will be no replays from Round Five onwards.

Spare a thought for Rotherham or Ipswich who never get a look in.

Other clubs rarely get 'main event' billing unless playing top clubs.

But you expect the 'big matches' to be on
It's actually pretty disgraceful

The red button midweek does mean teams get shown but it's really baisc effort with one camera angle , no replays and one commentating.

I have a good mind to complain to sky and they should in current digital age have far more in game coverage during midweek
Again the demand isn't there /some smaller fan base club don't want it

I think the top 6 and challengers should be priority and the bottom ones come business end which is often is case

However the choice of matches both premier and championship sometimes leave a lot to be desired.

Matches that are most interesting like man city Liverpool due to equal balance

I expect if Villa progress we ll inevitable shown more in play off push.

I can see Sheff wed getting a bit of coverage under Bruce .

Even though we played them on a Friday night just two months ago? Or are you saying Dave that's the exact reason WMP don't want it to take place (can't remember reading if it kicked off or not).

I have a feeling this will be midweek as Brighton tend to be one of those premier league sides who put reserve teams out in the cup for some reason so think they'll get replay at least against scratch Brighton team.

It was also fucking depressing. I drowned my sorrows that night and had a 7am flight the next morning. Nightmare.

Hi can anyone say if Villa away at Bolton will be available on sky sports red button? 
I like to see the first half before I need to go.
Aware that I don't think i can record second half.

And Good luck , safe journey and enjoy the match day for those travelling over  bank holiday to matches.

The Aston villa Millwall on Monday is listed for 1pm as a red button affair but wondering Bolton away on Good Friday will also be shown .

(I notice the Rotherham game actually had some replays and red button coverage has slightly improved from the basic one camera angle. Though commentary was lost and that the replays didn't initially occur but they coverage became more extensive as match went on maybe 20 mins or so in ?)

Thanks.
I guess the sky operating staff want a bank holiday off and/ or to celebrate what JC did on Good Friday by attending services .  Yeah I get that be difficult for sky to show games at a recognized sacred time and certainly understand as its hard to compete with Jesus Christ and the 3pm kick of and what he did for those who follow the wonderful christian faith !*
hallelujah!

*All faiths and spiritual following are just as apt for the individual ! And also humanist and non faith believers in JC are respected on Good Friday and everday too by me and all !

Peace be with you.

With 4 fixtures remaining, Bolton only have us and Brentford to play at home so surely some agreement or financial support will come from some where to fulfil the fixture list. An alternative could be they forfeit home advantage and play them as away fixtures, but I guess that wouldn't sit well with the FA or EFL.

It's difficult getting staff on bank Friday anyway ! And now this . Though I think in the emergency services they will show up otherwise I guess it's no game ?! Which at this level would seem unreal but shows the awful situation Bolton are in off field as much as on.
Have to credit when they went to QPR end of march and won especially after there beating week before and as mentioned major off field problems. However I fear they don't have much left and that was there greatest rise of glory after falling and I don't think we'll see much rise again

Itís not about disinterest, itís about having the trains/staff to do it. It may make a difference if the club wanted to help fund it.

Because weíre the clubís ďcustomersĒ too and theyíre more than aware of the restrictions on rail companies. But then as you quite rightly say, there are profits for the club to consider too.

I use local rail services. The company serving Witton and Aston are pumping in a billion pound over the course of the franchise. There are new trains being built, which will make all trains on that line (Cross City) 6 carriages. Running a ďbasicĒ 10 minute service on a line running through New Street is pretty miraculous.

Do you not think by the club and the rail company working together would help? Not just football but other events too. The current situation is organiser of event says itís happening, train company says they canít add capacity to cope with additional 30,000 people, event organiser says thatís your problem.

The local bus companies didnít mind the club putting on special buses.

I'm not sure what the involvement is or has ever been between the club and public transport bar communicating on the actual dates of games. When I used to travel on the bus to Villa Park it appeared that the bus companies knew there was a match on and acted accordingly, laying on extra buses, extra buses means extra income and the service is provided.

The only reason I can see that the train companies don't or won't do this is the inability to provide the sufficient rolling stock and staff.

Next season shouldn't be as bad as it's ever been, there was timetable change in May so now there's four trains an hour in both directions on cross city line as opposed to half hour after 7.30pm.

Don't think I've ever caught a train after a Tuesday/Wednesday fixture but can only imagine how bad it is if you just miss the 9.40pm one and then half to wait for the next after 10pm so at least another one next season.

The train company has a finite amount of rolling stock as given to them by the DfT in their franchise. If they move some of it to provide extra services for a sports event that means a service elsewhere is going short or not being provided at all for which the train operator will be fined by the DfT. Iím sure theyíd like to help but their franchise gives them minimal room for manoeuvre. I could go into a long rant here about current franchising and the useless DfT but will save for another time.

Back on topic, Fuck off Sky...

We aren't talking about them providing extra services. We are discussing the removal of services which are already in place.

I think, anyway.

That's a bit shit if true. Wonder if someone at the club could raise this and if it would make any difference if they did.

Oh, and fucking renationalise. Tory c***s.

I'll repeat what we've always been told - the train companies are totally uninterested in helping us when it comes to Villa games.

Why should they be interested?  Running a few special trains around our matches, at relatively short notice thanks to Sky, is probably a massive pain in the arse and very expensive.

Couple that with the fact that I bet the percentage of people on those trains who actually buy tickets for the journey is probably minimal I just don't see what's in it for the train companies.

That sort of attitude is exactly the reason why private companies shouldn't run public services. If you can't be arsed unless there's a big profit in it, that's not running a good service.

In any case, if you're worried about people not paying their fares, invest in more ticket inspectors.

Thereís no removal of service. Thatís not happening. Itís about the likelihood of providing additional services all the time.

If the train operator was controlled by our own local politicians as itís starting to become then you may get what you want. Iím sure Andy Street and the Labour City Council would be more interested in your opinion and your vote than some faceless bureaucrat in Whitehall if they realised running extra trains at Villa matches may garner them a few votes. Or god forbid your match ticket gave you free travel around WM on a match day.

On your point about the company not being arsed isnít true though, Iím sure they would if their franchise allowed them, they donít have the rolling stock to enable them to do it. Who decides on how much rolling stock they can have, the Government.

This is an area I'm working in, albeit over in Ireland, which hasn't gone through the privatisation process that was done in the UK. Public Service Obligation contracts are in place for routes (bus and rail) that are needed by the public but aren't profitable so require subsidy. To give you an idea of the scale, all bus services in Dublin City are PSO services and most town / city services throughout the country are as well, as well as all rail services. There's always a clamour for such services to provide access to concerts and special events, but in a lot of cases this can't be facilitated as it would have a knock-on effect on the operator's abilities to do the actual PSO element of their job (to and from work, education etc), meaning that the event license can have a condition attached that says that they need to put on coaches etc. to get people to and from the event, particularly when it is not in the city centre. Rail is a particularly complex one to plan for, so can only imagine the impact that 19 events throughout the course of a year, which can change with a week or two's notice, would have and it's somewhat understandable that they can't guarantee anything in this case.

The matches virtually never change with a week or so's notice. The only examples would be cup replays, but they've been phased out past Round Four now, anyway.

It would be worse if it was government/council run. Why should money be taken away from schools or care services just to get a few hundred/thousand football fans home a bit quicker after matches?

And rather than use more money that could go towards running the service you want to pay people to catch fare dodgers, why don't those people show a bit more personal integrity, then the train operators might actually see the benefit to everyone in running some extra services.

Because football supporters are members of the public and should be supported by public transport. Britain should have public services to match any on the planet. There's also a greater need than ever before to encourage people not to drive due to the whole not wanting the world to end by 2050 thing.

As for your second point, I don't really disagree. People shouldn't be dodging fares. But as we don't live in such a world, then adding extra inspectors seems a commonsense policy.

Also looking ahead, if Man U reach the quarter-finals of the Europa League, the home match in April against them will be moved to the Sunday regardless, and if Arsenal reach the semi-finals, the home match in May against them will also be moved to the Sunday.
