Why? Why should fans have to put up with this? I can tolerate games being moved to midday Saturday or at a push the early game on Sunday to accommodate Sky and their money but these given times are not acceptable in my eyes.
What consideration has been given to Newcastle fans to get to Bournemouth on a Sunday?
Most of the people I know work from 0700 on Monday to 1200 on Saturday. Saturday night and Sundays are precious time with your families, I live away and don’t have a season ticket but I respect those that do. I would be (I am) bloody annoyed by this blatant disregard of fans. – To join the conversation, click here.
