Fulham - So, Its 17:30 is it?

Fulham - So, Its 17:30 is it?

15:00, Saturday afternoon. Surely the highlight of every football fans week?

But not nowadays!

As a young person, it may seem weird for me to argue about this, but, English football is losing its tradition! I realise TV rights play a major role in this, but there are certain things in football that I feel shouldn't be shifted and changed week-by-week.

It has a catastrophic affect on fans in some cases, for example, moving a game to Sunday. Can they really expect us to adapt our whole week, just because a sports channel deems it necessary to show a game live?

As a football fan, I am prepared to change my whole week, just to revolve around one match, because I absolutely love it. But, not everybody is as open to change as I am, and the game loses fans because of it.

Gladly, our wonderful club doesn't seem to have a major problem in that area, but whenever the top 4 come knocking, you can guarantee we will not be playing at the good old time of 15:00 on a Saturday.

Come on football, fight back!

but some may see it as a neccessary evil to fund the game but I have to admit Setanta's kick-off times are ludicrous!

That is true Putney. There are too many sides to this argument!
