    Worth noting that Burnley away on Sat Aug 18 may also be shifted.

    If Burnley progress to the Europa League 3rd Qualifying Round the game will be played on Sun Aug 19 (KO TBC).

    BT seem to like showing us at home Man U!

    4th season in a row I think ..

    Sky will be hoping Watford V Palace is a better game than the last time they chose it..

    Gone for the Jokanovic factor for the Fulham game.

    Great news - I get back from holiday in Copenhagen at about 1pm on Saturday 25th Aug, so was pushing it to make the game. Thank you Sky for you indescriminate and thoughtless game movements, for once.

    So is that four games in a row that we will be on TV?! Don't remember that ever happening before...

    I'm of an older vintage, and football belongs at 3PM on a Saturday, or a Tuesday night

    I don't like football on a Sunday, Sunday's are for a couple of pints at Lunchtime, your Mums (God rest her) Sunday roast, falling asleep in front of The Big Match highlights (Orient v Wrexham or Brentford v Swindon) and waking up to Jim Bowen on Bullseye.

    Now THATS how to spend a Sunday

    Son of the Fry Days owner is getting married on Saturday 25th so he was going to have to find a way round it as he can't shut the shop on match day. Looks like the club did it for him, they're buzzing! :D

    Would that be you, or a brother of yours? Congrats either way.

    Can anyone confirm that if this game is shifted, it will DEFINATELY be on the Sunday, and not some other date? As I want to book the Travelodge asap.
    Thanks.

    It's not going to be moved for tv now so barring anything unforseen then yeah, it's either by the Sat or Sun. That's how I read what the club said.

    Ok thanks for that.

    No worries. If it turns out I'm wrong don't forget to make a claim on my totally made up, completely unenforceable money back guarantee.

    Yep confirmed on the club website.
    I have booked return rail from Leighton Buzzard for £31 and 3 nights Travelodge for £115. So happy bunny, just hope that we win.

    You mean Belgium - Vertonghen, Dembele and Alderweireld - presumably, although Chadli left Spurs some time ago. Of course it may be France with Lloris but not Sissoko.

    We had 5 in a row in 2013. Our last 2 two regular league matches away to Leicester and home to Leeds and the 3 play off matches.

    Next batch of televised fixtures in the PL have been announced by the broadcasters.

    Watford will appear on Sky and BT a massive zero times in October and November.

    It's difficult to keep up with all the changes!

    Boring club, boring coach, boring players. No surprise. Sky and BT don't want to have to justify showing players like Okaka, Holebas and Fatty to their important subscribers.

    Loads of 3pm kick offs then - brilliant.

    That's decent, doesn't **** up train travel - 16 quid return on the train for Wolves and 30 quid any time for Southampton.

    We are the only club not being shown on either network. Palace and Chelsea being shown the most, 4 times each.
