Wouldn't have an issue with WBA being moved to midweek. We have a pretty good record against them on non weekends in recent times.

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.


You're taking about a team managed by Paul Lambert, my money's on an easy win for Accrington Stanley.

I'd forgotten he was there, tbh.

Yes, a cup elimination at the hands of Accrington Stanley is the most Lambert thing ever.

Donít forget the FA Cup is an unwelcome distraction when youíre trying to finish 4th bottom.

So potentially three less VP Saturday league games after Xmas. A bit shit.

If we're still in the cup it'll be alright!

Sky have announced live games up to 4th March, no Villa games named, so the Albion game on 16 Feb will be a Sat 3 pm ko, a bit of a surprise.

Really shocked at that.  Very welcome, but shocked.

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 .

Really games moved for Tv are games rearranged for a broader audience
