Sky & BT butcher the fixture list

Sky & BT butcher the fixture list
Sky Sports and BT Sport have this week made their first moves in butchering the Premier League fixture list.

Why in this day and age when Sky Sports screen 116 live games and BT Sport screen an additional 38 games do we have this set-up I'll never understand.

The Premier League release the fixtures and then the broadcasters several weeks later move them around to suit themselves.

This has meant that six of Everton's first thirteen games of the season have now been moved.

The first are the homes games against Arsenal (August 23rd) and Chelsea (August 30th). Both have been selected by Sky Sports and will both now be evening kick-offs at 5.30pm.

The next two selections are by BT Sport, with the trips to Liverpool and Manchester United moved.

The Merseyside Derby will now be Saturday, September 27, 12.45pm, whilst the game against Manchester United will be Saturday, October 6, 12pm.

The next two switches are both Sky selections and both away days.

The trip to Burnley will now be a Sunday lunchtime kick off on Sunday, October 26, 1.30pm.

With the game at Tottenham, Sunday, November 30, 4pm.

Its hardly butchered. The games against Utd, Sunderland, Palace and Burnley would all be on a Sunday anyway due to Europa league. The game against the *****e always KOs at 1245 and the two late KOs against Arsenal and Chelsea will mean an extra couple of hours in the alehouse so the old lady will be a snarling bearpit. It could have been a whole lot worse with games on a Monday night
