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.

Trouble is you decide to watch more Everton games and they'll all just be moved for TV aswell, that's the reality for anyone in the premier league nowadays.

Why I'm going to more Walsall games home and away nowadays as they are never shifted from 3pm. So get yourself down to Prenton Park for your live football fix.

Villa - Stoke on March 22nd.

That's going to be a huge television audience.

I was actually surprised that Chelsea got 40,000+ for the FA Cup game against them this past weekend. And that's with Stoke not selling their full allocation. Had we been playing Stoke in Rd4 I'd have been stunned to see it top 30,000.

Was it the Old Trafford-approved "You can't buy a season ticket unless you pay for the cup games as well" scam?

Wrong side of the river mate - more likely to venture up to Preston, however its one of the worst places I have ever come across to park your car. Went to a couple of Southport games - wierd to say the least - most of the small attendance were in anoraks and those who were not were running up and down the small terrace behind the goal. I think its fair to say that most of Southport are related to each other in an unhealthy way - they all appear to share the same few surnames - unfortunately Rimmer is one of them and our Jimmy was from the said town.

Deepdale's one of my favourite grounds and they've a good chance of being back in the championship next season so would be a good choice.

Might be easier to get the train and then get a bus from the slick modern (irony alert) bus station as that's what I did when I popped up last season for the Walsall game.

Stourbridge gets more attractive with every passing year.

Not sure about the train from here - bus is the more likely alternative but it takes an eternity from Formby, via Southport.

Really getting fed up with this shite. Tempted not to renew next season mainly because it just does my tits in. Three fucking home games in one month moved. Fuck right off Sky you wankers*

*I can say this with a clear conscience as I haven't had Sky for years.

possibly, but even then I might not have showed up to watch Sturk. Maybe we should try that and get more people to show up to our cup games. It might only be for a round or two anyway

Even if you weren't there, if you'd bought a ticket you'd be in the attendance.

I was surprised arsenal had a sell out at home to coventry on a Friday night .
I have a friend who has a season ticket at the emirates and they were charging just a tenner for this game.

I gave up going to Villa to go to Halesowen. 3pm every Saturday, and I feel like my money really does make a difference as I'm treated like a fan and not a customer. I couldn't be doing with watching football on a cricket pitch ;-)

You don't have to. For the purposes of the Southern League ground grading the cricket pitch doesn't exist.
