I paid for it once and got what I deserved. A 0-3 thumping so I won’t be doing that again.

Scrapped by the end of the month, sense prevails with the premier league for a change.

Not confirmed yet but from the BBC.

The Premier League is likely to scrap the controversial pay-per-view method for matches after November's international window.

Clubs will instead look to devise a new solution that will cover the Christmas period.

A definitive decision was not taken at a shareholders' meeting on Thursday but discussions are said to be ongoing.

However, the £14.95 fee - which led to significant protests among fan groups - is expected to be dropped.

It is understood the model used in September, when all games were shown live by the Premier League's broadcast partners, is the likely direction of travel.

Pay-per-view remains on the table but a final decision is not expected this week.

In a statement, the Premier League said shareholders met on Thursday "to discuss a number of important issues", including the broadcast options for matches following the international break.

"Discussions with all stakeholders are ongoing and a broadcast solution will be announced in due course," it added.

Could have looked at halving the fee and then giving a quarter of the takings to each of the two clubs involved which they could then distribute to the food bank of choice in their areas.

Win/win?

I think 1957 would probably be the first.

Quite possibly. Unless we have played then when a Boxing Day has fallen on a Saturday, maybe? Not sure if Boxing Day is covered by the 3pm exemption rules.

I think, although I could be wrong, that Boxing Day is regarded the same as Saturday for TV exemption. I can't remember a televised 3pm game in any case.

Maybe. That would explain some atrocious kick off times we've had on that day.

A Target last-gasp winner at ten to five would do again nicely

Excellent initiative Dave.  Well done to all supporters of it.  As a long term donor of food to a number of food banks may I put in a word for awareness of the underlying driver of much hunger being homelessness. A great deal of potential food help cannot be effective because recipients have no means of preparing cooked food. It is all part of the same problem regrettably.
