The Huddersfield game is the one that really gives me the hump it is bad enough that the first three are away but to then move the first home game to a Monday :thdn:

Also a bloody long way for Huddersfield fans on a Monday night!

It absolutely matters.

In fact, this one small detail on this one Monday night is more important to me than who wins the entire league.

Absolute ball ache for the Huddersfield fans that. In the interest of the fans it should of been

Man Utd - Huddersfield
Everton - Huddersfield
Man City - Huddersfield
Liverpool - Huddersfield
Burnley - Huddersfield
Stoke - Huddersfield

West Ham - Chelsea
West Ham - Arsenal
West Ham - Palace
West Ham - Brighton
West Ham - Watford
West Ham - Tottenham

I really don't understand how an arrangement cannot be made so the fans are taken into consideration.

All fans particularly those who go to away games should be bothered about the total disregard for the travelling implications of night games

If we lived in a country with a proper public transport system it would be fine but we don't hence the reason why some clubs whom id rather not mention without swearing put on trains for their fans - our two bob owners make it clear repeatedly that they don't care about us

On an equally controversial but less emotive matter why are BT showing brighton and Stoke twice and West Ham not at all - is the same person who picks the order of games for the bbc now working for them :D

Great another home game moved to a Monday night for the pleasure? of the TV viewers. Looks like my daughter is going to have to wait even longer for her first home game this season as getting back home at gone midnight on a school night is simply not justifiable for a 9 yr old. Hope the club will reduce its prices of an adult upgrade for her season ticket, like they did last year...Fuming

The Huddersfield fans should be happy with what they've got. They're back in the promised land, travelling to a world class stadium, to watch world class footballers. If anything they should be thanking Sky for giving them the opportunity and the means to go and watch football by giving their club so much money.

It is if you want to do the trip on the train. Tickets already £130 odd day return. Bank holiday weekend hasn't helped in that regard.

Last year I was at Brighton vs Newcastle on a Tuesday night. Brighton are local, but I was almost glad the toon one for their fans which travelled a ridiculous journey for a Tuesday night game

Amen to this. Always look forward to the 1st Home Saturday 3pm, thought waiting until September 9th was bad enough, then this FFS. Then the Tottenham game got moved to 12:30 to dilute the atmosphere. Got to wait until Saturday 30th September!!! Headbanger

Southampton @ home moved to an away game.
Huddersfield @ home moved to a Monday.
Spurs @ home moved to mid day.

It will be almost October before we have a 3pm home game (30th Sept).

Until the 1st of January there is only 3 games at home that kick off at 3pm on a Saturday, Chelsea included so probably 2 in reality.

With 2 Friday night games and countless others midweek or late on a Saturday or Sunday. God I hate sky
