6 of our next 8 on TV. When do the tv dates run to?
Up to the 8th Dec, we've got Leeds at home on the 22nd, so that is almost a certainty to be another live game.

I could do with that one being moved to the Friday

Nooooo, Saturday 5.30 please.

What I don't get about it is WMP have limited both teams to 2100 away tickets this season, yet they've allowed us to play each other on a Friday night?

For the hundredth time - they don't decide the ticket allocation.

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?

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.

A camera operator with a steady hand would help. Coverage of the Bristol City game was like watching football whist shaking your head from side to side

It would. Maybe it is just someone with an i-Phone (4) after all.

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? Despite paying for a Sky day pass, I couldn't access the Bristol City game because there isn't a 'red button' facility on the 'Now' remote!  Is there another (legit) way of accessing the games (not home matches - !8 years s. ticket holder!) via 'Now', without selling my whole soul to SkyMurdoch?

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.
