    It seems Sky are looking at Arsenal v Liverpool, 4pm Xmas Eve (which is a Sunday) and no public transport for travelling fans to get back after the game.
    They really dont give a shit about match going fans.....

    Beyond a joke if they manage to get the go ahead on this. I can only remember one Christmas Eve fixture in the Premier League era and that was Leeds v United in 1995 but that was a lunchtime kick-off and of course a lot more local than Arsenal v Liverpool.

    There are a lot of Liverpool fans in London.

    Sky have a contract for two Sunday games. They cost £11 million each. The clubs and the Premier League didn't factor in that the calendar changes and that Christmas Eve might fall on a Sunday. They aren't going to give up that expense and nor should they. The fault lies with the PL and clubs who don't give a shit about fans and made no arrangements for such an eventuality.

    Why would anyone expect Sky not to ask for their contract to be fulfilled? Really?

    That’s why they’ve done it.

    People won’t be able to go, so Sty is thinking that they will subscribe to watch the game.
