Can anyone please explain the Watford kick off time change ?

It looks like the TV companies are trying La Liga style staggering of matches.

For evening games you have games that start at 7.30 and 8.25 so armchair fans can watch the second half of the later game.

Iíve also just also read that BT sport are screening 9 games on New Yearís Day staggered across the day. Us being first at 12.30pm.

Shite.

I'm still amazed that our game against Liverpool is a 3:00 kick off and not moved for live coverage.

Well the Sky live games are Wolves and Newcastle, so perhaps it was always going to be unlikely they were going to show us 3 weeks in a row, plus the fact BT are showing the City game, which would mean,if they showed the match, they would be showing us 2 weeks in a row, which again would be unlikely for BT.

Christ that's an early start for us down South on New Year's Day to make a 12.30 kick off at Burnley.

Leicester being moved is annoying, I'd thought the December games had already been set.

Hate Sunday games. If you're gonna fuck about with the kick off at least move it to a different time on Saturday 😥

Spurs game is part of the winter break set of fixtures. Was either weekend of Feb 9th or 16th.

They have 5 fixtures on each weekend. None kicking off at 3pm.
