Sky Sports will show 215 games live each season.
TNT Sports will show 52 games live each season.

That only leaves 113 games that won’t be televised.

Which means there will only be 113 Saturday 3PM kick-off games per season from the 32 Premier League weekend fixture dates.

That equates to 3.53 Saturday 3PM games per week.

And the average Premier League team will only have 5.65 Saturday 3PM fixtures per season. Some will have more. Some will have less. Maybe someone will have none?

As long as those overseas cash cows can tune in at a reasonable time then who cares about the fan who tries to turn up week in week out.

Yet you can go online and via various means watch 100% of the games. Most countries around the world can watch them except those in the UK, for one single reasonably priced subscription. Just abolish the 3PM rule, it's stupid and unenforceable now.

That’s 215 overanalysed games that won’t be worth watching then. I was in the company of a Leicester fan yesterday who is enjoying watching football again even though it’s a level below.

It’s no coincidence that our Tuesday night crowds have gone from our best to our worst since live tv football became endemic . Scrapping the 3pm blackout would be bad for lower league clubs

I’d imagine them winning every week helps somewhat.

When we get into the Premier League I will stop watching.




Well the first season might be a bit of a novilty.



Then after that I will stop watching.  


If the football is bad you can always watch the gulls.
