With the announcement of the fixture list for the coming 2018/19 Championship campaign, whilst it’s a nice distraction for Aston Villa fans given the last few weeks we’ve had on a financial news front and linked transfer speculation, the confirmation of our first live game of the season hasn’t gone over well with fans.

Whilst the vast majority of clubs in the EFL has a sensible Saturday kick-off, the Sky numpties have moved our first game of the year to a Monday evening, so fans face the enjoyable task of arranging trips to Hull and the KCOM Stadium at the beginning of a work week.

We all accept games will move, it’s a necessary evil unfortunately in the money bloated and dominated game now as clubs look to eek out every penny, and we will benefit financially from this obviously, but surely some idiot could realise all opening games of the season should at least be Saturday or Sunday based.

They only lose one game – it won’t kill them or harm their bonuses!

The reaction to this is largely unprintable to be fair, but you’ll get the general impression.

At least some fans were a little happier, or maybe not?

  • Hung out to rot by Sky , the sooner they are kick out of foofball the better. Never seen such a
    Lop sided structure as this six teams dominate the premier season after season. Avfc have sent
    In free fall by idiots chasing the greed. If ever a system created stagnation this has.

  • never understood why they don’t choose the sky fixtures before releasing the fixture list. It’s madness.

    • From what I read I thought they were announcing at the same time so it was clearer for fans.

  • Well no one likes us Hull on a Monday night and Boxing day Swansea away and the Saturday Preston away bloody joke when there are clubs alot closer we could have played

    • EFL want to bury unglamourous and long distance games in midweek slots, saving the weekend for the better crowds believe it or not.
