Another game changed for TV

Another game changed for TV

The TV executives have once again flexed there muscles to get a game changed for TV coverage - this time it is setanta sports who have taken up our away game at West Ham.

We were scheduled to face West Ham on Saturday 5th April, with a 3pm kick off but this has now been moved to Monday 7th for live coverage on the box.

This decision has been met with even more anger than the usual when a game is moved, as it is another example of the fact that you cannot really plan to go to virtually any game anymore as you never know what might happen as far as fixture changes go - so booking flights, trains, hotels and so on in advance is considered too risky now...

This latest change means that we currently have only 1 Saturday 3pm kick off in April now, with this game being Newcastle at Fratton on the 12th, West Ham is now Monday 7th on setanta sports, Man City Sunday 20th and Blackburn Sunday 27th, with these games both live on sky sports.

PLAY UP POMPEY!

Well as it said in last Sunday's Toast about playing on February 29th - how long will we be playing on Saturdays at 3pm? The answer was not long!!

easier said than done i know, but i say play all games on saturday at 3pm - and some midweek - as it is meant to, but change the 'rules' and allow all games to be broadcast on pay tv channels, or club channels, sky sports, setanta or whatever, if people want to go they will go, if they would rather watch on tv they will - the main thing i dont like is the constant changing of schedules...

Football sold its soul years ago and we, the fans, are paying the price. We fans are all at the bottom of the football food chain and let no-one tell you different.
