Oh do fuck off Sky

Sick of this - when did Norwich/Stoke become a "must see" for anyone?

For the first time in the history of Sky Sports broadcasting matches live they've actually done me a favour! I was due to miss the Norwich home game on March 1st to attend a wedding but I'll now be able to do both.
Is it asking too much for the Easter Saturday home game to be moved to Monday night? I've got a stag weekend in Amsterdam to go on on Good Friday, returning Easter Monday.

The Chelsea game being moved to 5.30 helps me as it is my daughter's eighth birthday. We can book an early kids party somewhere now. My son and I were under the cosh regarding a decision to miss the game or have the party on the Sunday, the latter of which would not have gone down well.

Blimey, we stand half a chance of seeing Villa win on telly!!  Home to Stoke, Home to Norwich.

Home to Chav$ki and away at ManUre aswell. Easy.

Why the fcuk is it obligatory now for Norwich at home to always be on TV? If you look at that Sunday, there's 3 games kicking off at 4.30pm, again bizarre.

Looks to me like the Norwich and Stoke games are just being shown so Sky can just fill their quota of showing every time 5 times or whatever it is.

What a fucking load of bollocks.

I can't make the Chelsea game because of a wedding - had they moved it to a Sunday I'd have been fine, but no, instead they just put it on telly on the Saturday night so I've got even less chance of selling my ticket.

Twats.

Villa - Stoke on March 22nd.

That's going to be a huge television audience.

I'm just disappointed it is in March. I thought SKY were trying to make it the Christmas must see in the finest Morecambe and Wise and Only Fools And Horses tradition.

Is it possible to get into negative numbers?

Such is the modern day you have to be pretty nave to think a 3pm Saturday game against Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea or Man. United is going to stay in that slot. You can count on one hand in the last 10 years probably the amount of times we've actually played any of those 4 at that time. They're always moved for tv.

Every sympathy with anyone inconveinced by Stoke or Norwich being moved. I firmly believe it's just due to Sky needing to fill their quota up for showing every team 5 times especially as BT have more picks nowadays (have they announced their games yet?)

And this is another feckin reason why I will not be renewing next season - Sky and the clubs sucking up to their paymasters is now well past just inconvenience. Modern football - fookin shove it .
Thats two more football fanatics who have had enough.

What annoys me is that tickets had already gone on sale (I got 3) shouldn't be allowed to move games once tickets have been sold
