A mate of mine has terrible trouble getting to and from Goodison for evening and Sunday matches due to his location and the lack of public transport late in the evening and on Sundays. He'll probably end up watching on telly whilst his ticket is plonked on StubHub.
It must be a nightmare for those who are working and have to arrange shift swaps or take holidays just to attend a football match. It seems to be getting worse each season, all the big games are live on TV, so what exactly do we as fans get for purchasing season tickets? Aside from a reasonable discount on game-by-game admission...

The txts are flying amongst our mob that go to games and with SIX CHANGES then time off work. Travel arrangements and hosts of other things to take into account being Christmas and New Year time we are all unsure of who can do what.
If live TV means fans come last then how long before we all say "Stuff it!" and tell Sky and BT to get cardboard cut-outs and crowd noise sound effects?
New ground?? Be great if we could make games.

They need to stop this nonsensical embargo on Saturday 3pm live games.

I don't know how you sleep nights.

Really early days I know but I am busting to take my 3 boys to Goodison (one of whom has never been) for an evening kick-off. We live in Kent now so not easy and expensive but worth it just for once. A 2-day round trip etc.
If anyone can't make this and has ticket access, I would be keen to hear. (Bullens Road ideally.) Cheers!

Now, we are on a lot late this year/early next year and people are fucking whinging about that.

According to the Evertonresults.com site the kick-off for that game was 6pm and I think it was Easter Monday? Prior to that we have beaten the other lot twice in 1994 (Rideout and Ferguson) and in 1992 (Johnston and Beardsley) in Monday night matches.

We have had some very poor keepers and Gerard is near the top of the list.

The £5 billion + deal this season merely contributes to the self-serving greed of a certain number of clubs, particularly in the form of ever-increasing salaries for average players, with the TV companies treating fans as morons who can be exploited as will.
Why do we accept this so passively? Are the TV companies right?

I'm a season ticket holder too and a few games rescheduled certainly isn't a 'pain in the arse' for me.

I live in Liverpool myself and have an 8-5pm job so the derby on a Monday night certainly isn't a problem for me.
Goodison under floodlights or the early kick-off on a Saturday (which it's been many times). What do you think would be the better atmosphere?

Regarding myself, I was being a bit selfish because this game is close to Christmas and the Monday is when me and my mates have our Christmas night out, but in general, Sky TV pay the money so can call the tune, but it doesn't help the match-going fans a great deal. My moan is with the clubs: they are raking in the money and reaping the benefit; we the fans are gaining nothing from this situation.
