The PL fixtures for next season are out

....and if I was BT I would be fuming.

The midweek and bank holiday rounds are terrible for BT. They are very unlikely now to get the big games that they had last season.

Eh? ALL the fixtures are now subject to mangling by Sky and BT for their schedules. What has been released is merely the indicative fixture list.

Thanks

I am tired of explaining this on here, to be honest.

The fixture list tells us a lot because we know what picks BT have.

 

BT have 1st and 2nd pick on all midweek and bank holiday rounds. Last year there were lots of good games on these rounds. This year there are none. Those rounds are BT's only controlling first picks.

 

On the weekend rounds, Sky have the controlling pics. Sky choose when to exercise their first picks.

 

BT will get very few good games this season and there is no way they will get the likes of Arsenal vs Man Utd that they got last season.

 

The schedules are not the concern. All games start at 3pm and they are then moved according to where the broadcasters want them.
