Sky Dictate Change to Blades Fixture

Sky Dictate Change to Blades Fixture

Our Championship game against Sheffield United at Turf Moor has been re-arranged due to Sky Sports wanting to cover the game live.

The game originally scheduled for Saturday, April 18th will now take place on Monday 20th April, with a 7.45pm kick-off.

I am not very happy about this to be honest and just wonder how many exiled Clarets have already been planning a trip up on the weekend to watch this game. If I had been on a contract at the moment I would probably have had to miss this game, which as a season ticket holder, I would not have been too pleased about.

Fed up of being dictated to by the likes of Sky to be honest and something should be done about it!

Why they cant decide which matches they are going to cover at the start of the season and stick to it, I dont know. I am fed up of having to change plans to accommodate the whims of TV

Hi, I never made a comment on this site before but after reading this news I'd just had to! Because you just don't make this situation were I'm just in, up! It's like a bad joke! (I wish it was!!): I found it unbelievable that Sky can just move the game to another day! especially in such a short time notice! Because me and some friends are from Holland (10 in total) and already booked a flight and a hostel in Liverpool to see Burnley on the 18th of april against Sheffield Utd! We arrive on a friday and leave on a monday morning..I have no idea what to do now..We were planning on going to the Wigan-Man Utd game as well, but that game is postponed! So you could imagine how I'm feeling now :S What the *%#@!! is probably best to describe it! Complaining about it at Burnley FC or Sky would probably make no difference.. :( Hopefully me and my friends can change the flight to tuesday but we have to book another hostel aswell.. It makes it all complicated and it's very frustrating - especially if you're from abroad..
