Thanks Sky, now you have ensured that Villa don't have a single solitary game up until the end of the season kicking off at 3pm on a Saturday. It is about time the FA and Sky got together and changed this incessant 'need' to change kick off times for TV. If the matches are going to be shown on tv, what is the difference with showing them at the stupid times (come on, Blues v Baggies, who the hell wants to play or watch a game at 11.30am on a Sunday?) or at Saturday 3pm? As a season ticket holder, I'll go to the game, tv or not, most fans will make their choice the same, BUT with these constant changes, it WILL drive fans away - it already is and even some die hard season ticket holders are getting bored and talking about giving up.
We want out football back!
Anyway, the home games against Portsmouth and Sheffield United have both been moved to accommodate Sky.
The Pompey game is now Sunday April 22 with a 4pm kick off.
The Sheffield United game will be played at 5.15pm on Saturday 5 May.
Everton - Monday 2 April kick off 8pm - tickets on general sale.
Wigan - Monday 9 April kick off 3pm - tickets on general sale.
Portsmouth - Sunday April 22 kick-off 4pm - Villa Value Game, tickets on general sale.
Sheff Utd - Saturday May 5 kick-off 5.15pm - tickets on general sale from Monday March 26
Tickets available via consumer sales: 0871 423 8101
Sky have helped in many ways to 'make' the game after it went into decline, now are they set, along with the FA, to ruin it?
